  1. I never said Batshuayi was treated fairly or unfairly by Conte. But since you brought this up, Bats never gave Conte any reason to play him for consecutive games.

  2. I have no idea how you got that from the quote... I think he's being supportive of the board after so much criticism... As for Bats, he didn't capitalize chances against decent sides, only two or three leagues below premier League... Costa worked wonders as target man, Morata did well before got hurt, physically and mentally. Bats didn't suit much and didn't take the chances... Conte has done amazingly well with a small and mostly uninspired last season and okay those one. We have been complaining about the board for years, way before Conte came. We've been signing average players as

  3. People will realise when Conte is gone just how bad the next few years are going to be. No more titles. No ambition (anyone honest will realise that Conte's moaning stems from ambition. I haven't forgotten the warrior he is. The level he demands from his players. He has been given a Cleo to race Ferraris). You know happens when everyone realises are ambition doesn't reflect that of other teams? That it isn't good enough? The best players leave. Hazard. Tibo. Willian (who we will miss when we see the cross we replace him with). This club needs Conte, because the board needs a manager with

  4. You know what's funny? What Arsenal are doing to Everton, WE can't even do that to Everton. It will be a very tight game for us. Simply because of our attack is weaksauce.

  5. Bats played 70+ minutes in a handful of games. Useless in all of those. I really find this hilarious. One game which is his debut, and a few here is going bonkers pointing fingers at Conte.

  6. It was Conte who favoured a CF that hasn't looked like scoring in his last 10 games (unable to score with his feet almost all season). This favouritism nonsense is something I despise. Morata in his worst form is twice the footballer Michy is. Even when he isn't scoring he offers much more.

  7. well, I told you so. Other than we Dortmund create many chances, throw many bodies up front so a stirker who finishes their simply chances is exactly what they need. Well done Bats, hopefully we can resell him expensively. He is just who he is and it is not his fault Conte thinks we need a striker to create his own chances. But then again it has only been one game against the worst side in Bundesliga. There will be tougher challenges.

  8. "I asked for this type of player with his characteristic from the club. The club gave me this opportunity" Giroud obviously wasn't his first choice target but Conte wanted a target man and got one. But hey ho, let's continue to criticize Conte for not utilizing Batshuayi more and at the same time, criticize the board for not backing Conte...

  11. Chelsea manager Antonio Conte says it is his "intention, will and desire" to continue in his job for at least the remaining 18 months of his contract. http://www.bbc.com/sport/football/42921679?ns_mchannel=social&ns_campaign=bbc_match_of_the_day&ns_source=facebook&ns_linkname=sport Yeah, baby!

  13. Sell one of Pedro or Willian and give the spot to one of our youngsters. Hudson, Musonda, Boga.. whoever, can't keep ignoring the talents. There is no point in signing average semi-established players to block them, waste of money unless the signing is of far superior quality. Throw one in the deep end and see what sticks, we have never actually tried that, but in these times it makes more sense than ever. Hudson-Odoi was exciting, a breath of fresh air, we need that. I think he had the first shot on goal for us, two in quick succession even. Nobody yesterday showed that kind of drive that h

  15. Didn't know him so I had nothing to say about him joining. But what a painfully average player he is. Not only does he lack ability but he's incredibly predictable. This is my problem with Chelsea. Spending good money on players who aren't good enough and players who don't offer anything the team needs. I'd rather spend 30 mil too much on a good player than sign a poor player on the 'cheap'. Every mil spent on a poor player is a mil too much. 25 mil. Poof. Gone.

  17. It’s what you were insinuating. Each to their own anyway. Conte doesn’t need sound logic or reasons to play players let’s be honest (see Gary Cahill). It’s not really a meritocracy here. Will never forget Conte’s treatment of Michy when Costa basically went missing for 6 months.

  24. Interesting from Conte, what he said about Giroud. I hope he wanted him. I’m “only” concerned about who is going to supply him with assists. Still thinking the same about Morata. When Azpi works Morata scores. Midfielders offers less or nothing and there you have a problem too.

  25. Conte misused Michy. I find hilarious that people complain about Batshuayi’s consistency when Conte plays him 15-30 seconds. This quite similar to Mourinho KDB situation. And no Michy isn’t as good as Kevin but he’s a lot better than the scraps Conte gave him.

  26. Ofcourse he is going to score a lot ...When you see the amount of space he gets it is ridiculous...Cannot compare it to Premier League where it is more physical and teams sit back without giving any space

  28. So Michy scored two goals and everyone start complaining that we misuse him or Conte is the worst manager. I don't believe anybody here think that Michy is a bad finsiher, I even said it multiple times that he is a better finisher than Morata or Costa. But in Conte system, the CF need to hold up the ball and bring our two AM into play. If you can't do that, then you are useless as CF. Is that Conte's fault not to change his system to suit Michy's strength or Michy's fault because he cannot fit into Conte System

  29. Conte didn't trust him at all. By continually benching him for non-strikers he didn't give him any confidence whatsoever. I'm not suggesting Batshuayi is this world class number 9 by any means but he's way better than many people give him credit for. He had an impressive goals:games ratio for us.

So we are going to pretend like Batshuayi is great but Conte has been ignoring him? Are people really gonna pretend like we all didn't, at one point or another in the last 18 months, mention something along the lines of 'And that's why Conte doesn't trust Batshuayi!'? All so easy to criticize Conte now because of his weak position. Also, when Batshuayi got injured earlier in the season, no one said a t

  33. Oh, FFS! Was it Conte out on the pitch all those times not being able to control a football? Was it Conte out there having the ball bounce off him like a brick wall? Could Conte have trusted him a bit more and instilled him with more confidence? Yes. But he didn't exactly help himself when he played.

  35. Lot of us said that he is the best manager for the player profiles that we have. And we weren't wrong. Let me ask you #ConteOut crew: What do you think our reality is? 2nd place? Cup winning? What do you expect with this squad?

  37. Conte's head is already not in this club it seems. He obviously doesn't want to be here and he is not focused at all. I don't think any manager with self respect would consider working with our con man and his board anymore. Be ready for very tough years ahead.

  38. People are going to be sorry for hoping Conte is sacked when we hire Marco Silva or Luis Enrique to replace him. Two managers who I feel would be disasters akin to AVB. Be careful what you wish for.

  39. This business model would make perfect sense if the club would just sit down, decide an identity which to follow on the pitch and integrate as many academy players as possible whilst making good business by getting bargains and selling loanees. Right they have no patience for the manager to develop a squad which forces the manager to ignore the youth and there's still after all these years no clear identity of play. The lack of vision is even more apparent when you look at who have been proposed as the successors of Conte. Allegri, Enrique, Simeone are all completely different managers with di

  41. This is my opinion..Yes Conte has his faults... Look at that squad most of them are average players who are playing above their level..I agree with his opinion that we must be realistic..If we are in top 4 at end of the season that is successful I have never seen a more honest manager than conte...He speaks what he has in his heart...English is not his native language... So some of his words are lost in the translation..Even in yesterday's conference he did not give any excuses when many of us are expecting it..I just hope he rejuvenates this team and get us into the winning mood..I

  42. I'd rather see Luiz straight back in if he's recovered. I think after Christensen it has to be either Luiz or it might as well be Ampadu. Cahill is Cahill and I'm not entirely convinced by Rudiger playing in the center.

  43. Hardwork accomplishes little when there is no intelligence or talent. If Cahill plays in the center against Barca in one of the games we might break the conceded goal record in CL.

  44. I liked him from what I saw. Dynamic, likes to take on player, likes to shoot. We know if everybody's fit by Monday, he'll probably not even be in the squad but I think now is the best time to give him a chance, seeing how bod Pedro is atm. Will still keep hope, since Conte could've easily did his mandatory Zappacosta-Moses substitution but he decided to go with Odoi.

  48. It's always extremes. Last season he was this god, exhalted above all other managers and capable of turning crap into gold. People actually wanted the club to buy average/decent players and all kinds of 'experiments' because Conte would do his abracadabra ting and take them to higher levels. And you're a fool if you think otherwise. Now he's a fraud, unmotivated, needs to go bla, bla, bla. The same thing over and over again. It's the damnedest thing.
