Yeah, 15-16 was much worse. Can't believe people don't remember how bad we were, like twice as bad as now.

Exactly. Cannot think of 1 memorable performance from that season besides the 2-2 vs Spurs which isn't all that great because we still conceded 2 goals.

This season there has been some good and memorable matches despite all the embarrassing ones.

I just want this season to end, it's too tiring to watch the same shit manager, players , board etc etc. There isn't one good thing I could possibly point out about this club's current situation. Even while we were 10th, I still enjoyed watching Chelsea play, it just isn't about the results anymore, it's like the club has had it's passion sucked out, and I don't even know what changes should be made to make the situation better, when no one seems to care anymore ,from the players to the owner.

I agree. While we played slightly better football this season and may finish 5th/6th, no match in 15/16 scarred me as bad as 17/18.

Bold question:

Is Antonio Conte the worst manager to ever win the Premier League? Its really hard to choose between Conte, Mancini and Pellegrini.

Conte has taken a massive hit on his reputation with this terrible coaching and running of Chelsea.

 

If you don't resign you are just going to ruin your chances of getting a better job somewhere else.

You know what is the worst? This season could still be even worse. We face Saints in the FA Cup semis. We may win or lose the tie, and in case of winning we face Man United or Spurs in their home basically. The thought of losing the final to Spurs or Mourinho is sickening. Not to mention Conte's poor cup record.

This season is already the worst season for me ever since supporting Chelsea from 2001. But I 100% agree, the icing on the cake will be losing to these lot in the final.

No he isn't. Conte's Chelsea last season broke fantastic PL records.

However if he won the PL this season (lol), then yes he is the worst manager in history to win it.

 

Edit: and even if we go with your logic, then Conte still isn’t the worst PL-winning manager. Have you forgotten Wenger?

Season was over some time. Players are not playing for anything. 

So no point in making a big fuss out of yesterday.

I hope it's true :) He doesn't want to be around anymore and doesn't want to change or try something ... Put an interim manager (Joe Edwars or Jody Morris) that will try some players and formations for next season.

Revisionist history.

The 15-16 team couldn't build up to save their lives. As bad as we are right now, we still are capable of creating chances.

I know fans often like to romanticize the past and compare it favourably to the present, but they are really taking the piss doing that with the 15/16 season, jeez.

To me it is. Or maybe he doesn't know any other tactic apart from the damn 3-4-3 formation. Even dinosaur Wenger changes his tactics when he is under pressure, and tries to switch it up (even though he fails at times) but at least he was trying something different.

Well, I think he has made a lot of mistakes. His subs are always somewhat too late, also players like Emerson and Giroud should've been given more chances.

But, he tried 3-5-2. He tried 3-4-3 with false 9. He tried Cesc as CAM, he tried Cesc in 2-man midfield. He tried some things. Reverting to 4-man defense, with this squad which is really suited for 3/5 in defense, isn't really a problem. I mean, yes, we are desperate, but changing to 4 in defense with this squad would be just that - one desperate try, an empty shoot, so what happens happens. You all must be thinking - well, we cannot do any worse than this. Well, guess what - WE CAN.

No one can convince me that Azpi - Christy - Rudy - Alonso defense would bring us anything special.

We actually have the worst defense, by names, in top-5 now. There is a reason why we play with 5 defenders - to cover all their weaknesses. Even Liverpool have brought VVD and are looking solid and better than us now, no need to mention Spurs or City.

This season isn't over by the way. We can finish 7th. I expect Arsenal to definitely overtake us due to their attacking strength. It's only a matter of time.

As for Burnley, if they keep their current form up they'll overtake us as well. This team is a mess.

We don't create any to little chances against big clubs and when it comes to the small clubs we become so wasteful.

 

3 PL wins out of 11 since the beginning of 2018.

Fuck all of the posters who said/agree this season isn't as bad as 2015/16. It's almost the same, just higher league position.

We are freefalling and there's no sign of us stopping.

Terrible terrible season. Conte out now.
