Antonio's hairdryer treatment working yet again, the team responded magnificently. Guy must be a very good motivator. even after having fallen out with two big characters (Costa, Luiz), others are still responding.

Can only hope this is not a one off. Need to continue this momentum after the international break. West Brom, then two big games at Qarabag and Liverpool.

Fair play to him if he's dropped Luiz based on his attitude, fuck player power. Conte runs this ship and he was spot on if reports are correct, maybe they might stop dragging their knuckles and start to show fight knowing they won't be pandered too.

If only Conte found a solution to when the bigger teams press us. He'll undoubtedly be one of the best 5 managers in the world if he figures how to play against pressing out.

We absolutely dominated manutd yesterday. Spot on tactically.

If he is not sacked, and he does not leaves this summer, I think by next season he will have a better team. 

Just need to suffer one more season. 

Because we might see the real deal next season.

I would like to see what Conte can do with Real Madrid and Barcelona Squad as manager. How those players would deal with the intense training methods of Conte.

Don't like one bit that he snubbed Mourinho's handshake. He's better than that. 

I loved it. Mourinho has been sniping at Conte with veiled shots non-stop for a while now and Conte has refused to get caught up in yet another battle José has tried to wage with a rival. Yesterday's refused handshake was the perfect "your pettiness doesn't matter to me" moment from Antonio.

Mourinho has shown no respect for Conte and got none in return because of it.

Still better than Jose going personal mocking his baldness.

Think that not shaking his hand shows that Mourinho did actually get to him. Nothing would have shown that Jose's pettiness hadn't gotten to Conte than had he shaken his hand.

It felt unnecessarily petty and Jose-like.

Tbf, "less of a cunt than Jose Mourinho" is not exactly a high bar. Conte is better than that, imo.

So Morata had a "bad spell" about as long as Harry Kane's first month every season. But people will have you believe Kane's is "normal" and Morata is the next Torres. 

We have 2 solid strikers. And we beat ManU before the international break. 2 weeks of relative peace. 

 

Above everything though, a clean sheet.

Worst thing would be to sack Conte. He was right to punish David Luiz. First, David was not good over the last couple of weeks - remind that penalty against Atletico for a start. Second, and foremost, David has not right to criticize the coach: he is a player and must follow the instructions he is given. Everyone has his own role and responsibility.

Maybe he got too caught up emotionally after what's happened in midweek? He did go full on celebrating the second the final whistle was blown. On the other hand, it's only a handshake. Not sure why there's a fuss about it.

Also, they shook hands when Conte arrived, Conte shook Mourinho's hands for half a second and didn't look at his face, but he did it

It was lose-lose, this handshake.

Act all friendly, shake his hand with generosity, and be considered fake. 

or

Don't shake his hand with passion, be considered a dick.

Personally, after the back and forth bits between the 2, I'd feel odd to see a regular handshake. It wouldn't happen in real life. You're teaching kids fantasies, which'll be harshly broken, if you insist these managers must always show a pristine level of respect for eachother.

Conte's reputation just got a big boost after Ventura's failure with Italy.

Still shocked that he didn't bring on let alone start his best attacking player in Insigne! Deserves to be slapped by the entire Italian population for that shocker of a team selection.

So, when was the last time Italy were not in the WC? 50 years ago? How long until we see another rumors how Comte was devastated watching Italy get knocked out, that he can't wait to go back to manage the NT?
