  1. The Conte Thread

    I never write on forums, because first and foremost I am a lazy bastard, secondly, I have never considered my views interesting enough to write down. But I have had to do it this time, since I have enjoyed the last couple of months so much. I would like to show my respect and say I am grateful for the following things: 1. I am able to sit down and watch a Chelsea match with joy, energy and excitement without being bored to death. 2. I can also look forward to the next match like it would be a holiday. 3. I like modest and professional people in life, so it is especially pleasant to hear/read about Conte and watch any interview with him. He doesn't mince his words and I think a coach doesn't have to. No mind games, no scandals. 4. I am satisfied with seeing the incredibly positive atmosphere within the club. Legends (not only Chelsea ones) come and go, they check the team, look at the lads how they work. I think Chelsea have lost a little bit of the hated nature that they had possessed before. 5. Moses. I like players on the periphery, since you don't need world-class players everywhere on the pitch (you need only a couple of them as far as I'm concerned), sometimes all you need is a lad, who does everything on a constant level and never goes beyond that thus becoming reliable. You need players who are good at following orders and never complain or rebel. I respect this guy for his humble nature and his incredible work. 6. I am grateful for the new and improved Diego Costa. I used to dislike him for the fact that he wasted a big amount of energy on mocking and bullying the opponent. With Conte he has managed to channel all this energy into being an efficient, running weapon on the pitch. He is a beast unleashed to tell you the truth and I would be really scared if I had to face him as a player. I know there is only one Didier Drogba, but Diego is more or less reminiscent of him so far, incredible. 7. Eden Hazard. I think with his new role on the pitch, the whole team can enjoy the benefits of a quick and offensive play. It is pure joy to watch him. Sometimes I rub my eyes and can't believe wtf has he just done. I reckon he shouldn't defend that much in order to utilize his creative potential much better. Of course it has its price, other have to do it. 8. Matic and Kanté can sufficiently manage this task complemented with Alonso and Moses. These guys never run out of juice, sometimes it is tiring to watch how much Kanté can run. I think this improved midfield is the key that our defense looks much better. In my opinion Conte has done a great amount of work harmonizing these guys. 9. I could mention the role of David Luiz in Conte's system. Being active, dynamic and ready to clear the ball even in the nick of time. He plays it pretty well and can also contribute to the offensive play with long balls. I am glad to enjoy football again and this was the sole purpose of writing this longish something here. Thank you Chelsea and Mr. Conte. I wish you all a happy new year!
  2. The Mourinho Thread

    If you cooked a lovely lunch yesterday, it won't be as good for dinner, even if you reheat it and add some spices, as it was at midday.
  3. The Mourinho Thread

    People tend to forget rather quickly and be without respect to those who have achieved never-seen results in the club's history. You can organize something uniform, but if you lose your creativity and personality with selling the grey cells, you will never win anything. The more people keep on saying you-know-who knows better, the more people will believe that they think the same and approve such a dumb act like selling the player who belongs to our history in an organic way.
