The extreme odds are he was a troll all along.

I think you staff do a great job all in all but if there's one area i will be (constructively) critical about is how long trolls get away with reigning terror on here before they get outed  ( badboyblue another example).

I do miss some people that got banned though. :D

This summer can't get any worse. 

I cant think of any reason why he wouldn't extend the years in the deal.

2 years works for me. The improved contract comes to show the commitment of both parts involved and the length is irrelevant. They can always make a new one next summer.

Why bother giving him 4 years or 5 years contract when no manager in recent history spent so much time on Chelsea's or almost any other club's bench? It's a realistic length for today's football.

"When West Ham were playing Tottenham, I decided to go to a restaurant in London with my family with Marcos (Alonso)...

"When we arrived, guess who was behind me in the same restaurant? The manager. It was hilarious...

"I have an app on my phone that tells me the score and when West Ham went 1-0 up, I turned round and told the manager the score...

"The manager didn't eat for the last 25 minutes and when it finished 1-0, he got up and came over to my family's table...

"He gave my dad a hug, my wife, children, myself and Marcos and he was so so happy because we knew we were going to win the league..

"That moment I will never forget because even though the team wasn't there, it was a celebration."

- Cesc Fabregas on West Ham 1-0 Spurs.

Conte is the king! :worship:

Lanzini is the man, lol. I remember I posted in English Footballl Thread couple of hours before the match, 'any chance for Spammers to win against Spurs today?' and I've got couple of replies 'no chance' for that to happened. It was a great day in the end.

It may make sense, but I'm pretty sure the club offered him extension of the contract firstly. Maybe that's why the talks have stalled for so long, maybe Conte didn't want to commit himself for longer, as he sees almost the same problems here, as in his Juve period. The Don just accepted a pay rise, so there was no chance of him declining that, but he probably refused an extension. He totally deserves it, he made miracles with this team last season, if he is able to go far in UCL and fight for the PL title this year, then he will definitely prove himself as one of the best, at least for me. But looking at what the board gives him this season, I can't see that happening.

You guys also need to realize this: When he was at Juventus, they didn't back him enough in transfer market, so eventually he left. But, in the times when transfer market was still normal! In this days you cannot get quality player for less than 45 millions. Our penny pinching? Nothing in comparison with the cheap transfers Juventus did in Conte's time.

Be sure that Conte is aware of that, he said himself last year that "market is crazy" and that it's so hard to bring quality for normal price.

This 2 years "extension" has nothing to do with that. He is just careful, our board is too.

I have reached a status of resignation in which I can not even celebrate a striker coming anymore. I have mentally prepared for a season with Remy and Michy as our strikeforce so I can not be disappoined. The only one to stop this deal now is Morata. Real want him gone and will be more than happy to take those 70 fucking million for him which are about doulbe he is worth.

Furthermore, if he was going to rage quit it was never going to be this summer. He won't leave without at least one shot at the CL.

Both parties are happy with the two-year deal and believe there is plenty of time to talk over a longer contract in the future. [Standard]

 

However, Antonio Conte did not commit to staying any longer than his previous contract, which expires in 2019. [Standard]

 

Conte’s new contract included a pay rise to £9.5million after winning the Premier League in his first season with the club. [Standard]

 

#Chelsea are still planning to offer Antonio Conte a contract extension in the future, despite him signing a new two-year deal. [Standard]

I am so incredibly done with this club and it's board who have absolutely zero football knowledge and are only good in dropping managers like a stone. 

This isn't even an extension. This is a pay rise to say thank you to Conte for winning the Premier League last season and that's it. No long-term project or anything. Nothing. 

I'm getting so incredibly tired of Chelsea. Maybe it's for the best that our shady, crooked owner gets busted and he fucks off to a Russian gulag and we get an owner who's not only good at sacking managers, but also good at actually running a football club with the right people. 

People who are going to bash on me for saying these things about Abramovich have no morals. Look up on the mans history. I don't care how much money he has spent for Chelsea or whatever, I cannot like the man. Love the place I work for, but I greatly dislike my employer. I like Chelsea, just not the owner and his incompetent henchmen. 

 

Have fun everybody. Might see some of you on the ManCity forum soon. Peace. 

bandwagon fan, so now that we´ve signed Morata you´ve changed your mind? so fickle, go ahead and join City
