going to get pelters but hey ho wouldn't bother me if conte left to be honest
cant stand his style of football this 3 4 3 formation we have become very predictable
if we play a team below 15th in league we swap a midfielder fabregas for pedro or willian.

when we play better teams we just sit back and hope hazard does something.
if we play Barcelona with this way of playing we will get spanked
ed said a few weeks ago that 2 managers got sacked for being predictable and I think this team is more predictable than any in the top six and certainly since jose first time around.

I think conte will go to madrid personally Zidane won't be there
I understand he is frustrated in the transfer market but he started this new way of playing which technically I feel meant some good players left and some good players aren't being used to there potential.

We haven’t signed a big big name in a long time and are. It going to be buying any superstars so for me we need a superstar manager and conte is that, doesn’t let players dictate to him and I agree playing lower teams is our issue as maybe he under estimates them or just doesn’t have the player he wants, but for me his vital, who else is there, Simone is so boring, watching athletico was hard work other day, Tuchel is a foreign Brendan Rogers, great going forward but no control over players and can’t defend, Allegri isn’t exciting and only won with best team in Italy, ( contes juve )

2.) 08 Jan 2018 16:06:18
For me Antonio Conte is the best manager out there. Chelsea board should be dissapointed if he was to leave. Give him his transfer targets and let's see what he can do.

3.) 08 Jan 2018 18:03:37
Conte and that formation won us the league last year. The only problem I have is when we play the lower teams in happy starting with the formation but if things ain't going our way 3 centre backs seem to stay on the pitch when we don't need them, take one of them off and put a attacker on. If Conte was ever to leave at a long shot I wouldn't mind JT and lamps having go.

4.) 08 Jan 2018 17:57:58
Ancelotti in a heart beat. Some of the play under him was phenomenal. But I do think a lot of the issues we have with lower div teams is the mentality of the players rather then the coach. He’s not the one who crosses the white line. Some days he plays the same team. Same team who can perform against high end opposition (Atletico) and then play poorly against others. So can’t see if being the managers fault.

5.) 08 Jan 2018 19:04:44
Only my opinion but ancelotti I feel isn’t the same man as before, times change and would be a step back, as for JT or lamps I wouldn’t want, his a legend at the club and should stay that way, come through youth maybe and become assistant but not a fan of ex legends taking over as manger,

6.) 08 Jan 2018 23:23:50
Carlo for me too I agree with most on these posts I like Conte but he’s no plan B and we become so predictable I am by no means a manager but I can tell you most of time exactly what he’s going to do and who we have two styles or should I say two ways of setting up and it’s being worked out every week and that’s what’s making it so hard to beat the smaller teams.

Know body is going to come in and have full control of transfers and day to day activities but am sure there told that before they get hired that’s just how Mr Abramovich wants the club to be run and who are we to tell him other wise for what he’s done for this great club of ours.

Think it’s just the way of the world players / managers just come and go now if Conte leaves he leaves we will still get a good manager and still be fighting for all 4 top trophies same with the player hazard leaves am sure they will sort it I’d be a little more frightened if hazard was to go than Conte though. Again I like Conte but would take Carlo if he was to leave.

Why are we not interested in mahrez?

Bottom-line - his lack of defensive workrate.

Not a good game, scrappy and in need of a goal ( chelsea goal ) will need some magic but frustrating dull game so far,



12 Dec 2017 19:51:40
5 at back against Huddersfield and no bats

gianfranco gola

1.) 12 Dec 2017 20:30:04
1 nil 😎.

2.) 12 Dec 2017 20:45:34
There's 2. With 5 at the back and no Bats.

3.) 13 Dec 2017 08:16:59
My point is conte said players are tired and squad isn't big enough and he leaves well rested players on bench bats, musonda, drinkwater.

4.) 13 Dec 2017 08:25:15
That's fair enough. I wanted Drinkwater and Batsuayi to start too but we got fresh legs in the form of Willian, Pedro, Moses and Rudiger.

We basically played 3 at the back too, with Alonso and Moses pushed as far forward as possible.

It's always going to be that formation. We don't play 5 at the back. They're not full-backs, they're wing backs. And with wing backs, you need the cover of 3 at the back.

Doesn't matter if it's against Barcelona or Billericay, Conte is setting us up this way and it's not going to change unless it's mid-game and we're chasing goals.



26 Nov 2017 10:16:15
I'm sorry everyone but Conte is starting to do my head in
Plays fab in Azerbaijan instead of Drinkwater then swaps them for lfc should be other way around.
Then 5 at back with 3 defensive midfielders
So we technically had 2 attacking players against the weakest defence in league
Then makes subs that should of started.
Joke that game was there for taking if we scored first they would of collapsed after midweek game
I'm getting sick of this 5 at the back every game even if we are losing.

He has now been at the club for just over a season and delivered us the Premiership Title.
This season, SO FAR, hasn’t been as good but we do have the Champions league to contend with and this season, unlike last season, we have had some key injuries.
Overall, Conte has got far more right than he has got wrong!

2.) 26 Nov 2017 12:14:10
Well said Tom.

3.) 26 Nov 2017 14:26:52
Some fans are just never happy. We aren't going to win every game, accept that.

4.) 26 Nov 2017 15:39:54
Qarabag was a must win game, and they were likely to sit back and let us try to break them down; we needed Fabregas for that and he'd have time on the ball from the outset.

Liverpool would press us from the outset, when we needed more energy and defensive minds in the midfield. The point where their defensive line got deeper was the right time to introduce Fabregas, he had more time on the ball to pick his passes.

Conte's decision was the correct one. I'd like to say I can't believe people are bashing Conte but, unfortunately, its completely believable in modern football.

5.) 26 Nov 2017 16:05:11
I agree “J” but football is all about opinions!

6.) 27 Nov 2017 08:28:25
3 or 5 at the back is boring. I want 433 like city and liverpool.

7.) 27 Nov 2017 08:37:34
Thought cesc would start but drinkwater was good, bakyoko was the problem that game and conte wouldn’t drop him for cesc as different players and v qarabag conte expected them to have lots behind the ball and be hard to break down. in a must win game to secure next round he thought cesc was the man, I agree, conte is the man to take us forward, simple to me,

Unlucky Bristol that's the way to play against them get into them there not as good as some teams make them look can't praise them enough great effort
Second point did anyone notice the lack of seats filled for a cup semi final disgrace.

Someone's a bit jealous of city .

2.) 10 Jan 2018 12:54:48
Not jealous at all just sick of the pep media love in.



08 Jan 2018 23:22:25
I hope we don't get lfc or city in the cup.

I hope a few more fans are a bit more positive on here, we’ll at least one of us got what we hoped for.



06 Jan 2018 12:51:25
I think barely is a great signing hazard morata and him liking up could be special.
Plus bakayoko bombing on could be great times.
I think bakayoko will be great once he settles.
He had a shocking season before I remember one of the Eds saying then came very good so fingers crossed he does same again.
First half against utd was a glimpse of what he can do he was powerful fast and bombing forward at will.

gianfranco gola

1.) 06 Jan 2018 17:23:17
Hazard is class. But Morata can’t score with his feet, Barkley is unproven and Bakayoko is average. Yeah mate we’ll rule the world with this side.



12 Dec 2017 19:47:26
Can we please not play 5 at back tonight we are becoming predictable
4 2 3 1 against lesser teams
Azlpi christen rudiger alonso

Cannot believe that disgusted
Our signings are pathetic who makes these decisions we don't seem to have a vision of what to do next.
I cannot for the life of me see what Carrol brings to the club are we going to play like Wimbledon 2 strikers up front and long ball it up to them because there good in the air we will be a laughing stock.
I don't see why we don't sign Phil jagielka Jonathan Walters Charlie Adam and Peter crouch to go with it.
That will definitely scare the crap out of Barca
Ffing fuming.

Been saying this for weeks
We won't be in top 4
We are predictable
We don't look interested
Tactics are boring and I think the players think it as well
I couldn't even bring myself to watch highlights yesterday why because I bet we had 3 at the back when they were down to ten
I probably would need to buy a new TV today.

Pep has lasted no longer than a few years at any club inherits great teams does what he can with that team and buggers off on bad terms yes he is a great tactician but I have doubts he will be a fertile type figure. Barcelona type dynasty I would rather the real Madrid format to be honest.

That team had heart spirit and fight not to mention a never say die attitude
Cech Terry Ivanovich cole Bertrand luiz cahill lamps Ramirez essien merieles Torres sturridge and drogba

Tibo Christensen Moses Alonso Kennedy azpi cahill drinkwater kante fabregas bakayoko hazard morata batshuayi

I know what squad my money would be on
The only players that would get in 2011/ 12 team hazard and maybe azpi
If they get a good run fantastic
This half glass half full is stupid
There is optimist's and realists I know what side I'm on
In 2011/ 2012 I was still a realist as that team had the attributes to win no matter the circumstances play good football or win ugly.

Plus they had capabilities to adapt there formation to attack certain teams or defend against certain teams this new crop of players I don't believe have that in them
There was about six players at least who would of gone to the end of the earth to win for the club now days I'd say maybe 1 azpi that's about it
Sorry for the long post just my view on things (realist) ktbffh.
