  1. Chelsea 2-1 Man City

    Can't let it go from here now, Chels. The funny thing is that the points total Spurs are working towards would probably have won them the title last year.
  2. The Conte Thread

    That's true. I might have been harsh by saying we were exposed. Liverpool and Spurs didn't really create all that much in our games with them (but finished well), although against Arsenal and especially City, we conceded too many chances. Either way, we weren't particularly convincing in any of those big games, and as you mentioned one of the main reasons for that is our inability to cope well with pressing (coupled with our often passive approach limiting our chances going forward). Our standing in the 'top 6 mini league' isn't actually that bad though. It might be something that won't really be fixed until we get some better players in, but I do hope we at least see some improvement against Liverpool and Arsenal in the upcoming fixtures.
  3. The Conte Thread

    I said in the pre-match thread that it's important not to overreact whatever the result, but it must be said that our performances against the bigger teams this season have left a lot to be desired. Liverpool, City, Arsenal and Tottenham all exposed us defensively. The media have definitely overrated us in that respect and the big teams know we are there to be got at. It's therefore even more vital that we remain consistent against the lesser sides. This will hopefully be enough to get us over the line.
  4. Spurs 2-0 Chelsea

    This'll be a draw, I reckon. Could quite easily be a defeat though. We need to remember that after an incredible 13-game winning streak, a bad result will come sooner or later. So let's not have a meltdown when it does happen. It's how we bounce back that matters most.
  5. The Conte Thread

    Exactly this. I think people are downplaying expectations to avoid disappointment, but win our next two games and we're on target for 98 points ffs! It's extremely unlikely that we'll get close to that total but the title is the target, make no mistake about it.
  6. The Conte Thread

    I read earlier that he's now won 41 of his last 47 league games. Pretty insane, that. He needs to kick on a bit more in the cup competitions to earn the 'Best in the World' title though, in my opinion. Right now the priority is to just maintain our league standing but it can't harm to hope we have a decent FA Cup run. And I have confidence from Conte's showing in the Euros that he can do better in the CL (next year, hopefully) than he did at Juve.

    Did his trademark 'lose the ball whilst on an aimless run and then feign an injury to the face instead of getting back to defend' in the first half against Sunderland
  8. Oscar

    I politely request a moment of silence for Gilvorak.
  9. The Conte Thread

    Yeah either this season or the next will be his last there, by the look of things.

    4-2-3-1 is back? #ConteOut
  11. The Conte Thread

    I think you're really overrating their players. If there's one team over the past few years that's been MUCH more than the sum of its parts, it's Simeone's Atletico. They're having a bad season (domestically) but you can't write Simeone off already.

  13. Chelsea v West Brom

    Hmm dunno, this (like every game I guess, lol) has the potential to be one of those frustrating days where we miss a bucketload of chances and then they score with their one and only attempt. Hopefully not though and we make it 9 wins in a row.
  14. The Mourinho Thread

    Winners focus on winning. Losers focus on winners.
