  2. Hello everyone, Sorry if I'm being rude, I did not introduce myself, I've been here for a long time but I prefer read you all than sharing my common opinion. But tonight I will share with you a great information I heard this afternoon on RMC a french radio station. Azpilicueta was being interviewed by Christophe Dugarry and when the latter asked him if his plan was to retire at Chelsea, Azpi answered yes, that he loved the club and that him and his family were happy in England. I know it doesn't mean he will actually do it for sure, since it's football, but it clearly shows his commitment to the club. I was so happy when I heard that, I wanted to share it with you Chelsea fans .

  4. Hard to follow all the action here with so much work on my table and stuff to do. But i'll leave my two cents, most approriately on this thread Just want to say Antonio is the best thing to happen to Chelsea in the last 20 years besides Roman himself. He's utterly dominated the "league of managers" and left Mourinho, Guardiola, Klopp and Pochettino in his wake. No touchline bans - No FA conspiracies - No dull football - No digs at other managers - No public shaming of players- No cult of personality, causing division among fans - The focus on the club not the manager. Some said we couldn't do better (and there was none better out there) than the one we had here before but look at us now! Antonio. Just brilliant man management, superb tactical acumen and unrivalled passion all season. He has only likeable traits. We have the best manager in the world right now in our possession. It's important Roman now does everything possible to bring in high calibre players that will IMPROVE the team. He deserves that. God bless you and your family Signore Conte and thanks for the 6th. 🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆 (and the sweetest one I've witnessed to date, considering all the circumstances surrounding this season and the disaster of last).

  5. More than a few months gone by and now with the mouth full of humble pie, i'll have to say this to you all: You were right and i was wrong, in order to move forwards for Chelsea Football Club, parting ways with Jose Mourinho was the right decision from a non emotional point of view. The Mancs have been completely uninspiring on the pitch, life's been completely coached out of free spirits such as Mkhitaryan, Mata, Martial (good fullback vs. Chelsea though) and Shaw. Nonsens players like Darmian, Fellaini and Lingard are getting the nod ahead of some of the just mentioned names. Players who haven't any idea how to move the ball forward, no attacking play from their fullbacks whatsover and when coming back from behind, absolutely clueless and results in very heavy on the eye... A lot of Mancs are still under the narative to this very day that they're being Moyesd', but the simple truth is that Mourinho hasn't done enough with the talent he's already having around. Mourinho's being outtacticed in a lot of games by now, so the tag 'special' has to be taken off him. I didn't think the outcome we all have seen would be become a reality, but it really did. In terms of the style of play, there's night and day between United and Chelsea. Chelsea are a machine -you just know what's going to happen...United on the other hand are a turgid, slow overused machine, not gonna expect too much of them. Will it continue? On the transfer market Mourinho did better than Guardiola, IMO, but that's not saying much. After today's display i don't think that someone like Griezmann would be much of a change. In the end he's human after all, Klopp should give up on the 'normal one' tag. So, because football does matter, congratulations on the league and making a good decision to the benefit of the future. I'm sorry!

  6. It's said Antonio has improved a lot of the player's. But bar Alonso defensively i don't think he has, he has just done something a lot of manager's can't seem to manage, he's USED THEM PROPERLY. Moses has awful decision making in final 3rd area's but brilliant pace, stamina and athleticism, Conte has put him in a position that plays to his strength's and for the large part hides his major weaknesses. Luiz still has the rash moment's (like vs Rondon Friday), but Conte has found the perfect position for him where-as he can utilize his skills and when the rushes of blood come there's cover around him 9 times out of 10, like when he misjudged the Rondon moment. The one critque of Azpi as a fullback was that he wasn't great going forward, Conte has found the position where he can be the defensive rock he has always been while there not being a major demand on him going forward bar passing it out from the back to help the build up construction, basically anything he does going forward now (like his title winning assist) is a bonus not a requirement. Pedro was shit last season because the system didn't suit his game, he often was in a position where he needed to create magic himself, and he isn't that player Conte's wingback system has allowed Pedro to play closer to Hazard in the pocket and combine with him the way he did with Messi and Villa and the results have been devastating. Now to Antonio's best bit of management after Azpi at RCB, his use of Cesc. Lets be real here, Cesc has as much athleticism as 60 year olds that play badminton at their local gym, and that has led to him burningout and also be a major target to expoit defensively (i still shudder thinking about De Bruyne using him as a traffic cone almost) but with the major weaknesses he also has major strength's, ones we will struggle to replace should he go, and Conte has used him when his strength's are needed and kept him firmly on the bench when his weaknesses were likely to be exploited. Just absolute genius management, i honestly thought Jose mark one was as good as it will ever get, but he's as good if not better.

  8. He was getting more carried away than a lot of the fans at the end yesterday, superb to see. I love his energy and passion, but at the same time the way he's so measured before and after games. It's genuinely refreshing not hearing some bollocks in an attempt at (not so subtle) misdirection - He tells it like it is, but still protects the players (note how he didn't say a thing about the virus after the Utd game and instead blamed himself for the team and formation he put out). Even if we didn't end up winning anything, it's been a tremendous season in the context of how things panned out last season. Give him whatever he asks for in the summer and we're in for a treat over the next few seasons....

  22. The last few games including today has probably done him enough to earn his place in the squad next season and probably and well possibly as second striker too. Really happy that let's face it after a tough season for him, he has finished on a really good note. 4 goals in his last 3 games and scored the one that won us the title. Well done Bats!

  29. Good post. Because we've dominated the league, suddenly everyone has forgotten how we got here. Everyone has forgotten that Moses couldn't get a start for Westham or Liverpool, Everyone has forgotten that Alonso was average in the league for Bolton/Sunderland, everyone has forgotten that Luiz was benched for marquinos in PSG and a defensive liability before in the league, everyone has forgotten how Cahill was costing us goals with back passes lapses in concentration. Ivanovic, Oscar and Terry were still starting and we were eight points behind first position by late September. Conte has given on a season of excitement. Top scorers in the league, Lots of fantastic, memorable matches (3-0 Burnley, 3-1 Mancity, 4-0 Manutd, 5-0 Everton, 4-2 Stoke, 3-1 Arsenal, 4-2 Spurs, etc) Yet jealous peeps like Mourinho criticize our style and even Wenger is saying we play like Leicester city last season without taking the initiative. Even without landing his first choice players, combine this with facing two managers (Mourinho & Pep) who spent 200mil and got their targets he has done magnificent. Just imagine what we can do if we get his technical and mobile targets. The future is looking good for us, hopefully he's backed massively.

  30. Yesterday Chelsea Croatia supporters' club had an honor to represent all supporters' clubs and give Player of a Year award to our worthy winner - N'Golo Kante! That's me on the right, in what was, the most unbelievable day of my life.

  32. Without Conte's work there would be this Juventus today. Our defense BBC was created by him. He has highlighted Chiellini, Marchisio, Bonucci, Barzagli and rejoined in Buffon the desire to win and stretched Pirlo's career of 4 years. With Conte Vidal lifted the maximum of his quality. Conte had the courage to bet on Pogba (a tip this summer if I was in you would try to buy Poga under Conte would be devastating in partnership with Kante). Allegri is a good coach and with a strong team he can win. Conte is a fucking conqueror. "Make the win" with hard work as done to Juventus and soon -3 points to Chelsea. Allegri is better suited to lead teams where everything is fine. For me the best is Conte, otherwise he would not defeat Allegri's Milan and Ibrahimovic at the first year unbeaten(despite having mediocre strikers) It seems like a century has passed

  34. Another sensational game he was brilliant. Traore was the only player I was worried about from that team and he marginalised the threat by Traore and going forward was such a threat. He lost Traore so much times and could of had a hattrick. I don't know if the goal will be taken away from him but to have 5/6 goals for a LWB is brilliant. An unsung hero and another marvellous piece of business done by Conte. Certainly has been worth the money and said it before but he should have definitely been in that team of the year ahead of Rose.

  38. What needs to be said about Antonio's work at CFC so far has likely been said all evening yesterday. I just want to say that I cannot state with enough gratitude how wonderful it is to have Antonio as our manager after what we've seen at our club during the past decade. I would really like to see our club now make good buys in the transfer window and give Antonio the further support he needs to stay at CFC and be successful across competitions for years to come. We are privileged to have a manager who was a centre midfielder at a top European club, who knows every angle of the game, every inch of grass and sees space, deficiencies, opportunities very clearly --like an astute all-around footballer with a good tactical brain. One other note: the side we had 12 years ago was certainly better than the current squad, but Antonio made the most of this squad with the formation he chose, his planning of training sessions and attention to his players. I am so happy for Antonio and CFC. Long may Antonio reign here!

  42. Absolute class act going into the dressing room after the Youth Cup win. I adore this guy, I adore him because he is humble and a real peoples person. To do what he has done and clean up Mourinho's mess of last season is just spectacular in itself. He's made players like Moses and Alonso into very very good players and adapted them into the system and culture with absolute ease. Give this guy what he wants in the summer, back him and watch us go.

  46. Brilliant job by Conte. What a transformation. I remember last season, I simply expected us to lose every game, it was just crazy. This season it has been completely the other way around. It does not matter who we face, I feel like somehow, someway we are going to win.

  47. I would love to pass 90points barrier, but hell give youth playtime. Seriously when will we play them if not in such games? Terry should obviously feature in some way, while RLC, Ake, Chalobah MUST get at least one start. Bats should feature too. We play two home games, against relatively easy opponents and with title wraped no pressure, there is no better time to give them some play time. Pls Conte, do dis.
