The Manager

Opinion

We want our Antonio Conte back at Chelsea.

If there is one thing we can all agree on as Chelsea fans now, it's that Antonio Conte looks within himself a shadow of the head-coach he was last season.

I am tired and quite frankly bored of reading/watching all the opinion of Chelsea's current woes coupled with the opinions of ex-players, pundits and reporters who have never kicked a ball professionally in their lives on Antonio Conte.

Are the days numbered for Antonio Conte at Chelsea?

Antonio Conte is on the verge of being sacked at Chelsea after disastrous back-to-back defeats to Bournemouth and Watford a few days ago. Despite those two obvious loses, more important Chelsea failed to perform in those games and they looked really bad on the field. Just a season on from winning the Premier League, the Italian is battling to save his job after seeing Chelsea fall massive 19 points behind Manchester City in the title race.

Antonio Conte remains as Chelsea’s Head-Coach and it’s the right decision.

Chelsea Football Club have insisted that it's "business as usual" at Stamford Bridge and the Cobham training ground when the players return from their three-day break. Antonio Conte will remain in charge which in my view is the correct decision.

I must be honest, I spent the day yesterday scouring through online websites and social media expecting an "official club statement" to be made and thankfully it never came.

Antonio Conte is only stating the obvious – the top four is Chelsea's genuine target this season.

There is plenty of negative focus on Antonio Conte's post-match comments made after the defeat to Bournemouth. He is only re-iterating the obvious and I do not see why it's being made into such a big deal.

Watching SkySports continually loop the "latest" deadline day transfer deals last night, they suddenly stopped to feature Antonio Conte's press conference.

An opinion of Chelsea's transfer policy this season.

Antonio Conte has repeatedly complained about the size of his squad. We needed to add to our squad without completely disrupting it in the summer. We got Caballero in on a free. Who did we buy? Morata for a club record fee in the region of £60m. And four more fully fledged internationals. Our squad has had something like £200m spent on it in the last six months.

An opinion of the situation Antonio Conte now finds himself in at Chelsea.

Conte. Conte. More Conte. I imagine that on press conference days Steve Atkins (the one who sits next to Antonio and polices the jackals) and Carlo Cudicini (appointed translator) feel like any chat show host that ever saw Oliver Reed walking out onto their set; terrified that he's lost the plot that much that he's going to launch into a stream of obscenities, grab someone's a*se, get his cock out, or all of the above.

The incredible statistic that puts Chelsea's Antonio Conte on par with Pep Guardiola at Manchester City.

The SkySports Football Show "The Debate" highlighted the amazing stat ahead of this weekends fixtures. With City losing to Liverpool and Chelsea picking up a point against Leicester both Managers now have amassed the same number of points since July 2016.


It really is an incredible statistic bearing in mind all the negativity towards Chelsea's last three results.

If Antonio Conte leaves Chelsea it would be the worst decision Roman Abramovich has made.

The future of Antonio Conte at Chelsea is under the spotlight once again this morning with various claims being made in the press that he is preparing to leave Chelsea at the end of the season. If Roman Abramovich allows this to happen, it will be the worst decision he has made since he took over the club.

The fall out from Arsenal - It's important to be realistic with the final on the horizon.

Having had to miss the game due to work commitments last night I was more than surprised to see the wave of negativity towards Antonio Conte after the game and call for some perspective as we are only half-way through the semi-final tie.
Let me start by saying that I have called for Antonio Conte to attack Arsenal for two weeks running based on the two reasons.

It's clear that Jose Mourinho has finally met his match in Antonio Conte.

A Chelsea Fans Blog for Chelsea Fans at related • 0 views

A flippant comment made by Jose Mourinho last week has escalated out of proportion to become the the latest feud that has diverted attention away from his team. This time however it's clear he has met his match in Antonio Conte.

For years as a Chelsea fan we would sit and watch with smiles on our faces a Jose Mourinho press conference whether it was for domestic or European games, the man was quite simply box office.

Conte: I am here to work on the pitch with the players the club give me.

Antonio Conte has confirmed the situation with club policy on transfers and it makes for frustrating reading.

Ever since Roman Abramovich took over at Stamford Bridge the general consensus has been that he and the Chelsea board have total control over club transfers in and out.

Antonio Conte: I'd like to start every game with the best players but this is not possible.

Speaking in his pre-match press conference ahead of the visit of Swansea at Stamford Bridge tonight, Antonio Conte has a clear message for his players heading into the busy festive period.

Between now and January 3rd, Antonio Conte and his Chelsea squad face ELEVEN games with an average of a game every three days.

Antonio Conte's message to Cesc Fabregas and Eden Hazard - Go and play with freedom.

A Chelsea Fans Blog for Chelsea Fans at related • 0 views

In recent weeks and against Atletico Madrid, with Antonio Conte's switch to a three-man midfield, he has given Cesc Fabregas and Eden Hazard exactly what they wanted - freedom.

The boss, in my opinion, never received ALL of the plaudits that he should have last season for winning the Premier League and that's because of our lack of involvement in Europe.

Antonio Conte speculation starts again and is a disgrace..

A Chelsea Fans Blog for Chelsea Fans at related • 0 views

Having had to deal with a number of reports that Antonio Conte's position at Chelsea was under threat a few weeks ago for the Manager to speak out, I'm afraid to say that for some reason it's starting again and is a disgrace.

It's becoming a real joke to be honest and there will be little doubt than in his pre-match press conference this Friday ahead of our trip to West Brom, Antonio Conte will take issue with that idiot Karveh Solakol from SkySports who will no doubt refer to these ridiculous reports for the second time in less than a month.

Emenalo quits Chelsea - Victory for Antonio Conte and finally a change in the right direction moving forward.

Michael Emenalo has resigned from his role as Chelsea's Technical Director with immediate effect. In my view this another victory at Chelsea for Antonio Conte.

Sitting at home watching the victory over Manchester United again the other night with he subsequent post-match comments made by Jamie Carragher and Gary Neville it really hit home the poor and unfavourable opinion people have of the hierarchy of our club.

First Diego Costa, now David Luiz - Antonio Conte wins yet another battle at the Bridge.

David Luiz was dropped from the first team squad to face Manchester United yesterday and faces a battle to get back in favour with Antonio Conte.

It's a shame really that plenty of the focus post-match has been about Luiz and a reported bust-up rather than the excellent performance that won us the game 1-0.

With the likes of Charly Musonda, Ethan Ampadu , Jake Clarke-Salter and Dujon Sterling all being involved the other night, Antonio Conte has re-iterated his message to our youngsters.

With Chelsea's involvement in the Champions League this season, it was always going to be a game that the manager used to rotate his players.

Sometimes young players think they can play easily in the Chelsea first team, but that’s not true.

Antonio Conte has defended his decision to sell Nathaniel Chalobah, Bertrand Traore and Nathan Ake this summer and has spoken of a lack of patience from youngsters these days.

There has been plenty of debate and comment made this summer over the decision to sell some of our most promising youngsters at the club who have had a taste of Premier League football at Chelsea last season.

What are Tottenham’s expectations? If they don’t win the title it’s not a tragedy but for the others it is.

Antonio Conte had called a meeting with Cesc Fabregas at the start of Chelsea's pre-season campaign to re-iterated that he is in his plans for the coming season and that he will start more games.

I have to say it looking back now that the season is over and we have started preparing for the new campaign, Cesc Fabregas was different class both on and off the pitch.

Diego Costa: No messing around from Antonio Conte - Case closed.

Antonio Conte has revealed to the media that a decision was made of the future of Diego Costa back in January as it became clear to the club, to the player and his agent that he was to leave Chelsea.

As with any player and the speculation regarding their future, you always have to wait to hear substance to those reports rather than rely on a barrage of comment and debate that follows for days/weeks afterwards.

Antonio Conte is an uncompromising man, and in his 16 months as Chelsea head coach the Italian has shown on numerous occasions he is prepared to fight to protect what he sees as his club's interests, even if it ends up making him a few enemies along the way. David Luiz heads into the November international break on the naughty step after being dropped against Manchester United, while technical director Michael Emenalo made the surprise decision to step down amid significant tensions between Conte and the Chelsea hierarchy -- though the relationship between the Nigerian and Conte did not reach the stage of those below.

Antonio Conte has put to bed any recent speculation of his immediate future as Chelsea's head coach in his press conference ahead of today's game at Crystal Palace.

I am so glad that the international break is over for two reasons. Firstly, we do not have to put up with being forced to watch Gareth Southgate attempt at leading an England team with Jordan Henderson in it which is bad enough having those two involved and secondly, because of all the crap that comes out of the media regarding the futures of some of our biggest stars.

Antonio Conte - Ignore the negativity from pundits and the press. Get behind the manager.

Two goals from Marcos Alonso sealed a much needed and vital three points for Chelsea at Wembley. Antonio Conte's tactical masterclass frustrated the life out of Tottenham who had to rely on an own goal from Michy Batshuayi to register on the score sheet themselves.

There had been been plenty of comment ahead of the game of Chelsea, Diego Costa, the suspensions of Gary Cahill and Cesc Fabregas and a threadbare squad that would lead to our downfall at Wembley yesterday afternoon.
