Sod the weird angle camera options you get need one on him! Not getting super ahead but unless we mess up big time his reaction when we win the league will be amazing :-)... 

Weird to think we had the month with no wins..

Exactly. How a big a lead would we have now had we started the season with the same form? Probably be on course to break all points records.

People need to realize that our managers actually have a big influence on our transfer targets. You just need to look at which players we 've been linked with since we signed Conte as our manager. 

The majority of them are either Italian or play in the Italian league. Clear examples are players like Koulibaly and Nainggolan. In the summer we made a number of bids for both these 2 players.

I mean yes sometimes the board themselves recommend a promising player (like Batshuayi) to the manager but i'm certain that they first discuss it with the manager before buying.

I don't get why people have such difficulty with the board having the final say on transfers. Whether it's a board or a manager both will have bad transfers and good ones.

 

Also i'd like to point out that we actually did go for Stones and Pogba in the summer after our PL title. It was reported that we made bids for both.

People would rather hate on the board than listen to facts tbh.

Football is just crazy. Conte is doing so great right now, but in modern football it seems inevitable that one day he will get axed (might be even next season, who kwows? Last two managers to win the PL got axed right in the next season after the trophy). Then, most fans will get angry at the board, probably blame the player for the bad results...untill the next manager with good results arrive, then Conte won't be missed and might even get taunted when he returns to SB as a rival manager.

11 point gap at the 70th minute mark 1-1, bet Mourinho would have been happy with a point away from home and we'd have played a dull game until the end. 

Conte took a defender off, changed tactics, kept pushing at all costs and it payed off. Such a change in mentality, totally transforming the club from top to bottom and we're not even the finished article yet.

No more drama, controversy, silly mind games, negative tactics, no more bad press.

He's given this club a new identity and although Chelsea is hated from right to left, I bet there's a lot of neutrals saying "wow they really ditched negative tactics, they really are a fun team to watch."

Give the man a new contract and let him decide on transfers. Club's going into the right direction. Amazing time to be a Chelsea fan.

Some people say Conte just erased Mourinho's shadow, but every time I read a post like this I get the opposite feeling. At this point I think we know Conte and Mourinho are two different animals. Mourinho is an ultra defensive manager, he likes mind games, he likes to create some strong headlines to newspapers, he has a huge ego. Last game with Mourinho as the manager was back in 2015 (!!!), its not like he was sacked months ago, and its not like Conte just arrived weeks ago.

Jose is an attention-seeking psychopath/narcissist + Conte is a passionate manager. Guess which one is swinging from dugouts

No manager was taunted until Mourinho because he talk crap mostly and second because he's at United. 

But other then that look at how we treated raniere? 

Mourinho will be liked again once he leaves United. But until then his the enemy.

I don't really have much bad feelings towards mourinho, he left us with good memories and sure he poofed up into a cloud of smoke in the end, But i think he still will be a part of us no matter what :'D

 

Conte on the other hand is such a cute!, Kinda makes me look forward to where can go from now on with him, Would be happy to let him some extra say in transfers and give him some backing too.

Mourinho will be busy picking fights with others even if his side is sitting 10 points clear at the top.

Just a lot of what if's and maybe's we are after the yids won still 10 points ahead with 10 games left just enjoy it mate. If Conte does leave us he won't join another English team he's got a bond with us what's the word I'm looking for SPECIAL.

I think Mourinho never wanted to lose his job and get his image messed up again.

What are the odds we switch to a 352 next year? Isn't that Conte's preferred formation?

While we have Kante there is no real need for a 3 man midfield, if anything that will get in his way!!

Not too sure about that. Maybe not in the Premier League but think we may need it in Europe. There have been some games this season where we got overrun in midfield and Conte brought on Fabregas to help us wrestle the control back.
