i dont want to conte to go but why does he have to be so one dimensional...goddamn
i would be alright with Conte staying if he still had the passion in the first season, i really thought he could build a solid foundation for the coming years and be our manager for a long time
Some can say that Conte should have done better this season with the players he had which is true but why did the board just not get the players he wanted? He seemed livid by not getting the players he wanted and having to settle for 2nd or 3rd choices. I think it really bruised his ego after winning the title and I mean it got so bad, he had to talk about it in press conferences time and time again.

In a way I feel for how things turned out for him. His a good manager but nothing was going to change in his eyes, I don't think he believed this team could get into top 4 and his constant war of words with the board festered into the locker room and some players are just not happy with him here at Chelsea any longer.
City are going after Jorginho and Mahrez lol!. Other teams might as well forget about league and start focusing on Cup games.
rival clubs signing and attempting major signings while we are still dealing with the manager problems, hope it will be done soon
nothing stops other big teams from buying bigger players. city's business should not affect other teams winning the title
PL teams performance over last two seasons(76 PL games).

1 City - Won 55 , lost 8 , Draw 13 , Scored 186 , Points 178
2 Chelsea - Won 51 , lost 15 , Draw 10 , Scored 147 , Points 163
3 Spurs - Won 49 , lost 11 , Draw 16 , Scored 160 , Points 163
4 LPool - Won 43 , lost 11 , Draw 22 , Scored 162 , Points 151
5 United - Won 43 , lost 12 , Draw 21 , Scored 122 , Points 150


IMO goals scored in one area where we could have done better and obviously we lost too many games at home this season. If we had finished in top-4 Conte could have left with his head high. Anyways, if he deserves so much negativity from fans i dont know what the other managers below him do.
+2
he is a top manager and even in a crisis season we got 70 points and in many games we screwed over selves in the foot this season
replacing Costa was never going to be easy and we are in that transition, that was the biggest problem we made and selling Matic to a direct rival wasn't too wise
A few more months of a new manager, and we will go again.

Fantastic article..worth reading for many people who want Conte gone

Key takeaways -

The writer is asking for us not to forget what Conte did last season and to be patient and think long term.

After reading this, I am still Conte out -- for me, it isn't about trophies or success.

I simply just hate the way we play under Conte. I want to play like a big team
+1
Okay, fair enough. I guess time will tell how many people have patience with losing 3 or 4 goals at home. This defence and midfield is garbage when playing open football.
+1
my biggest reason against Conte is that against lesser teams we play so poor and try to win with something magical and the 2nd half of the season we didn't even press opposition, we give the team far too much room

we are just not using Hazard to the level he could be and we don't score enough goals, how could we? if we only have 1 striker vs 3 defenders and half of the time the cross is poor

the season we won the league Conte was so animated and when he gets going the players reacted this season it didn't happen at all, and once he started doing it again at the end of the season it was too late

Conte is a success regardless whether he stays or goes
To play like big team we have to buy like big teams...Not the drinkwater , Barkley , Emerson kind of signings.

I know some of you will argue that our spending is same as United , Liverpool etc. But its not always about money. Its about what quality you bring for that money. you could spend only 30m and buy Kante and the other hand you could spend 35m to bring drinkwater

Even if we get Sarri and feed him with board signings and not the signings he wants whats the point?

Conte's team did play like big team in his 1st season and won league with some impressive wins and tally
Conte leaving, your getting Sarri from Napoli
they want DL on cheap too, right ?
I won't be surprised if he leaves. I mean some players are unsure weather they want to stay or leave atm. Letting the manager leave is much cheaper than having to replace top players. I thought Sarri might stay at Napoli for another season but seems like its not going to happen.
Napoli already signed Ancelotti.
hope we can sign Gomes from Barca, decent cm to play with Kante
Holy s**t, the top video on our page is my good buddy and former band mate.

Now we know how that video got here kgb

Name a Manager available who is better than Conte??? We should focus more on strengthening the squad and allow Conte to sign the players he wants to sign. This sacking managers every other season is ridiculous, is every manager in football too incompetent to keep a job for more then 2 seasons???
+1
I dont think there are many or any available who are better than him but there are managers out there who would play a more attacking football for sure. Enrique, Carlo, Sarri etc
+1
Carlo Ancelloti is a better manager than Conte, JT said he is one of the most tactical manager he has worked with and also he plays much better attacking flow football and Carlo wins trophies wherever he goes

Conte is a great manager, the only one out there that can be argued is Carlo and like @TWB said, we need more attacking coach rather than defensive mindset coach, we need a manager with a balanced mindset
+1
like Enrique could be a huge gamble like AVB but AVB signed us some world class players for the future eg KDB, Lukaku, Tbo
+1
AvB did not sign any of those players, the club signed them. In fact, AvB went on record to say those were not his signings. Moreover, he put Lukaku in the u23s for a full season, which pissed him off no end.

Sarri is flavour of the month, and my fear is he will turn out like Scolari. We played some very good football last season, and I see no reason why we cannot do that under Conte, if we sign better players than we have over the last 4 transfer windows.
+3
oops my bad

isnt Sarri considering the Zenit job ?, his tactics is entertaining to watch thou, football is beautiful, we'll be utilizing Hazard to the fullest

with Conte in charge of signing, that doesn't solve all our problems, he has a history of signing strange deals eg wanting to sign Caroll and Juve he signed Bendtner, the board signings haven't been too bad Giroud is one of the reason why we had some form towards the end of the season
but then again he signed Kante

Looks like Carlo to Napoli and Sarri to Zenith

Which looks like it's between Enrique or Jardim, neither are proven as Conte
Why do we need to be a more attacking team??? We never had our team set up in a super attacking style yet we are one of, if not the most successful English teams in the last 10 years, what we need now is consistency. Both bad seasons after we won our title we failed to improve the squad, I predicted it at the start of the season that we were in trouble, due to the signings we were making in comparison to the players we let go.
Conte is a fantastic coach and I wouldnt mind him staying if the club decides to keep him. The only reason I want him to leave is just that I feel as a Club we have come a long way with the Mourinho/Conte style of football but it's time to change direction. I fear if we don't then we will never attract the best attacking talents going forward. The modern attacking players live to express themselves and be in a team that facilitates their flair game and not suppress it. It's no surprise we've lost most of our most talented attacking players since Mou returned till date this cannot be overlooked. I don't think under a Klopp or even a Brendan Rodgers we'd lose KdB, Mata, Lukaku, Salah etc.

We have an academy and loan system churning out prodigious talented players but the only one to make it back is a defender. Don't tell me that Baker, Chalobah, RLC,Tammy, Keneddy, Palmer, Boga, Musonda etc couldn't do a decent job for us as back ups at the very least a la Barklay and Drinkwater. And by that I don't mean just including the in the squad and expecting them to be forever grateful without actually playing. I mean like in the case of Keneddy if he could start and do well against lower table teams for Newcastle why can't he do same for us surrounded by even better players? I never get the logic when there are 5 teams who we call fellow title contenders, another 5 who we can call mid table and the remaining 10 who are bottom table. When then can't a youngster on our team get to start against at least 5 to 7 of teams in this league?

Truth is if we has Raheem Sterling, Sane, Jesus, Rashford, Lingard, Kane, Alli, Iwobi etc they'd still be aimlessly sojourning across the loan landscape. Rashford and Lingard in that list has nothing to do with Jose they have actually regressed under him.

I feel an attacking coach is what we need to launch our new era as we look forward to building "the cathedral of football" only an attacking philosophy will do justice to such accolade. Can't come to the cathedral of football and watch pragmatic football year in year out.

Sarri could be that man to lead us into that new era or at worst he could be the one to lay the foundation just like Rodgers and Pellegrini did for Pool and City respectively. City moved from Mancini by appointing Pellegrini who's CV wasn't that great prior to that. We've been trying to exorcise the ghost of Mourinho for years let's just get it over with. I also drool at the prospect of seeing Hazard play under an attacking coach after over hals a decade with us. The poor guy has virtually played in a team with handbrake on since RDM was sacked. He deserves better.

It's time to move on me thinks
+3
@Kaiba we have scored the least amount of goals in the top 6, there were many occasions where we played bottom side where we play with zero press and playing like we are winning when it's only 0-0 and we don't kill off any games and that goal difference is absymal, and when we score a goal, we just sit back for the rest of the game and eventually end up conceding, with an attacking approach we could control the situation better

And also Morata struggled in the league because he is the only one in the opposition box and he gets crowded out, and we barely ever have 2 when we are attacking

We have one of the best players in the league in Hazard, the likes of Willian, Pedro, RLC , Cesc, Alonso, Morata, Michy, Kennedy are all better attacking players and we ain't using them to the full potential
Looks like Conte is staying for at least 1 more year. Can't say i like it.
+1
terrible news, half of the players don't want him there. they guy Conte made the captain tried his best to duck the question when asked about Conte's future

the only player that said that wanted Conte was Giroud and he wasn't even Conte's signing lol

i know people want continuity but there is no point in keeping a manager who doesn't have the players backings
keep Conte and lose Hazard, Willian and T-bo is a big mistake
and it ain't like we have options either
Carlo, Enrique , Jardim and Sarri are all available
+1
Better than getting some unproven manager to please fans and sack him after 6 months when is struggling
But why would a player answer a question regarding the future of the manager? That is between the manager and the owners/board.
+1
The players can say they hope he stays here even if they don't, because of professionalism usually Cahill says the right words but he avoided that question
Didnt i tell you Conte is staying? Abramovich is no position to throw 9 mil around when he's under sanctions. That said Conte is a decent coach I don't know why he is not liked around. He won 2 trophies in 2 years thats not bad IMO.
+2
"Abramovich is no position to throw 9 mil around when he's under sanctions."

I highly doubt that that is the issue.
@FootballIsCity: Who said he is not liked? Every game of the season, the crowd have been chanting his name.
@Liquidator read the posts in this forum doesn't look like he's liked here. I think he's a good coach 2 trophies in 2 seasons is not bad considering he didn't get the signings he wanted to get.
+1
thats mainly due to us expressing our frustrations due to a horrendous title defense, it doesn't show all of the fan base, some will be more vocal, Conte doesn't have everyone backing him but there are others that back him

me and most of the fan-base would prefer more of an attacking approach but if it doesn't happen, we'll still back the team to win
+1
"@Liquidator read the posts in this forum doesn't look like he's liked here".

Real fans are at the stadium...we are just keyboard worries who change opinion day after day
+3
^^Must be sarcasm.
I never understand why people get upset at other fans negativity. You love Conte and want him to say -- cool.

Others dont like him and want him to leave --- why should your opinion be acceptable just cos it's in the positive?

And this thing about real fans only going to the Stadium is BS...some of us live in different continent or can't afford a season ticket..doesnt mean our opinions are any less.

Some of us just want a more ambitious approach to winning games. Tired of this ultra defensive footy even if it wins us trophies
+4
Even im tried of defensive approach....but i dont know who can bring the attacking approach and win trophies. Lets wait and watch.
Man U are interested in signing Willian

Source Sky Sports


We better not sell him, regardless of his inconsistencies he is still one of our better players
+1
United always keep an eye on our players..lol
Assuming we would sell him, how much he would go for?
Swap with Mata and 20 mil?
love Mata but he aint the same player, we need to think wisely and try and get 80m or more with the inflated market if he does want to go,

or they could swap us Martial because he is unsettled there and both play in the same position

it is important that we also keep important players rather than buy new players and giving them time to settle in

Willian's Instagram pic he completely blocked out Conte

like WTF lol
He says Conte is made of gold and wins trophy every year.
+4
hope so haha
Mata + 20 sounds like a bad business for this market. But speaking of Mata really hurts, he shouldn't have gone to Man Utd. That move really killed him.
he was still good under Moysie and LVG, ever since Mou took over it went down :(
+1
He might be the player I would want to sell the least, I'd be pissed.
This probably means Conte is staying
Oh s**t another season of defensive football with Hazard and Willian gone?
