The Conte Thread

Started by Special Juan,

Conte could be a special one perhaps you know take a championship winning team into relegation fodder in a matter of months. Or like another Italian manager take a team who just survived relegation and is full of rejects and journeyman and turn them into almost definite champions without spending a fortune and alienating and pissing everyone off he comes in contact with.

If calling him "head coach" isn't just a matter of semantics, I can see this blowing up very quickly. He seems like the kind of guy that wants to make the big decisions, and if he's got the board poking around his office the entire time, I can see this getting ugly fast.

This club needs to realize that what's happened this season isn't down to the manager alone. It's on everyone at the club.

Wenger is the last of a dying breed of manager's having full control romance, it just simply doesn't happen anywhere anymore.

Fuck the head coach role.

More shite transfers from Emenalo and co. We are fucked. Good luck Antonio.

Can't wait till we get Danny Drinkwater, Pirlo on loan and replace Terry with Wes Morgan.

I just hope he does well. The fact that emenalo is still around makes me fear for Conte´s job. Regardless of what might happen, welcome to the greatest clun in london! Here´s for the titles that many of us hope you´ll bring along! Let the party start:drunk:

Maybe I'm wrong and he'll be given more control than I'm imagining. I'm not against higher ups with knowledge of the game (not just interest in big star shirt sales and interest) making decisions, but if Conte has players he wants, they should be a priority. A competent board with a good vision is ideal, but I'll take any step up from what we've got going on now. The board need to look internally instead of externally when considering the future. Conte will come in and create a philosophy on the pitch, but that has to be supported by the decisions made by the board in order for it to be successful.

As already said, nobody should be poking around his desk, let him conduct things, let him make decisions who comes and who go's and most of all back with money for whatever is needed.

This season has been the biggest slap in the fucking face ever, DO NOT let it happen again.

Mourinho was a "manager" yet you feels he hadn't got much control over tranfers. Pochettino is a "head coach" yet you feel the squad is shaped under his direction.

Board tries to sign the players from managers order but they have to be financially viable, something that Mourinho mentioned. They work in a group, he is the football man, then there's a team responsible for negotiations and the team responsible for financial impact. Not longer than 2 years ago Mourinho praised fantastic work done by the small teams in the club responsible for their duties and said that the transfer window could be closed on 19th of July. Then there was last summer window when Chelsea failed with matching enourmous demands from the clubs for their players, more than anything. There was a dilemma between going for big but unprobable or settling for lesser targets.

All in all, both Mourinho and Pochettino work in similar conditions.

So head coach Antonio Conte has to deal with other teams withing the club responsible e.g. financial aspect of the transfers. But no doubt club will try to go for his targets and the players we're linked with at the moment are great, you can't do bad if you pull something off this.

Fair point but I don't think Conte is the kind of a man who says yes to things if he doesn't have a strong say in matters like transfer targets etc.
