Damn Deadlines! The Times’ article on Rafa Benitez filed at 5.30pm on Wednesday

The excellent @TheMediaTweets has unearthed a gem.

As is well known, newspapers go to print well before the 12pm mark and this proved a quite embarrassing for the Times of London’s journalist Rory Smith yesterday.

Printing his article early in the afternoon Smith went with the now excellent headline “Shrewd Benitez.”

With hindsight, which has rapidly altered the picture around Benitez’s tenure at Stamford Bridge, Smith’s opening couple of paragraphs have quickly turned out to be wrong.

Enjoy Rory Smith’s piece of Chelsea manager Rafa Benitez below.
