My mistake. I thought Conte was much older than he is :)
I know Hughes isn't young. It was just an idea saying that sometimes the "small names" are good enough. Hughes isn't crap at all.

Ancelotti is a terrible example as he had won the CL recently, and is one in a thousand managers that everyone knows is a football genius. Howe is not "crappy" and has achieved a lot (some people don't think there are leagues under the PL in England apparently).

As I said before. Conte is a good manager and I would welcome him here. I was merely stating that maybe it would be a good thing to look in the direction of someone who knows "English football".

Didn't say Howe was crappy, and a think Ancelotti is a perfect exemple, i remember people being very skeptical about him when he arrived, had no league sucess with Milan, he only got his reputation after Chelsea and Real Madrid. Conte already had massive league sucess, there's no point in not appoint him as the next manager, of course nothing is guaranteed, he may become a total flop, but right now he is the best option by far as i think Simeone is not leaving Atlético, and tbh i prefer Conte.

And yes, Hughes is total crap, ask any City fan if they miss him.

You say that Hughes 'is total crap' and that's harsh. He is doing a good job at Stoke and was he really that bad at City?
He wasn't setting the world alight, alright, but it's not all black and white, there's more to come than a binary call at the end of the day, there's a third option,
the term 'okay' fits the bill nicely, imo.

Ancelotti had one great season here at Chelsea, just like Jose recently experienced, but they both don't use the youth properly and prefer having a small number of regulars. They both have problems and made mistakes over and over again.

Conte is an option, for sure, but how can you say it's the best option for us?
There are many coaches out there, i'm no judge, can't say i know all of them and who's the best one for Chelsea?
Remember, the most decorated man isn't always the best one for the Chelsea job. 

Personally speaking, i don't have problem with a 'small' name, the talking is done on the pitch. Would love someone like Thomas Tuchel or the new head coach of Hoffenheim here, he is a 28 year old no-name, but comes across very intelligent. Yes, Roman won't do it, the legend... ready for Pellers getting the job. :)

It's not about the most decorated mate, it's about recent retrospect.

Conte's training are much harder than Mourinho's and Conte is not similar to Mourinho.Conte picks a system to suit the players he favours rather than the other way round so that doesn't mean he will use a 3-5-2.

Well he did play 3:5:2 and as soon Alegri took over, he restructured team to 4:3:1:2 with same players (bar Evra, but that makes you question, why didnt Conte buy natural LB in three years) and reached CL final.

Probably (hopefuly) Conte wont play 3:5:2 here, but I dont think he suits this team or league. He demands full loyalty and trust and has hard training. We dont have team of warriors and fighters anymore, not sure how current bunch of players would suit Conte, because no one can make for example Cesc a heavy worker,

Allegri has tried this season to change Juventus but he failed so he returned to 3-5-2.The question is why didn't the Juventus board buy because Conte wanted 2 wingers and Juventus was really lucky to get to the final.

Tell me why does Conte not suit this team or league? Why do you think we have no warriors and fighters? Conte will make sure that every single Chelsea player fights to win or they will not play.Conte will also buy players.

if conte does come to chelsea i hope he plays the 4-3-3 formation with fabregas koke Nainggolan has the midfied trio if we cant get koke get pjanic i miss 4-3-3 formation and sell oscar to balance the books

Why Conte doesnt suit league? Because his training methods dont suit it. Italian league is one thing, english is other. The competition and rhytm are much more difficult than in italy. He burns players and if our players couldnt cope under Mou, how will they survive under Conte? Conte is known for playing same players and doesnt like to rotate much which could be problem. He didnt even pick Insigne for italy despite he is on fire this season. Hazard would be burnt out soon under Conte. 

And our players warriors? Who? Who is willing to run whole game relentlessly regardless of result and fight for every ball? Willian, Azpi. Who else? Maybe Costa. The rest of the team is too slow or doesnt work hard enough to follow Conte methods and succeed. Not to mention Conte had great defense at juve. His team is oriented on balanced and organized defence. He would have lot of work with buying top defenders and midfielders and then creating a team out of it. He had bunch of italians and passionate players like Vidal at juve, which created special bond and mentality there. It would be alot harder to do that here because few players actualy showed they would 'die' for club. And without such players Conte wont get far.

Not to mention we will be back to square one with defensive tactics once again. I like strong defense, but with balanced play. Im sure if we pick Conte, we will watch more and more bunkers in every bigger game. And with all attacking players that we have, why not go for something more? Hiddink is doing fine job for example, IMO conte is just too defensive. Plus we dont have single italian here. Conte is known to be great mental leader and having so many italians back at juve surely helped create strong bonds and relationships. Never underestimate team players. Here I feel he would be somewhat out of place unless he brings couple of players he worked with before like Pogba, Vidal, Chielini, Verratti etc but good luck with getting any of those.

So you're suggesting that the club should appoint a manager that's already working in the Premier League, because "x league is one thing, English is other"? 

Mourinho came from Portugal, Ancelotti came from Italy (!) and they were pretty successful even during their first season here. I think there is a question mark about the adaptability of Conte's methods, but it's not a sure thing that he won't be able to adapt. It's a risk, indeed, but anyone else rumoured to get the job would be a risk. 

About tactics and warriors, we do have warriors: Ivanovic, Azpi, Cahill, Matic, Costa, Willian, the young lads, they are all ready to put their head in the opponents' boot for a guy that knows how to motivate them. And we will buy more players, players that Conte wants. The tactics have to be changed, anyway, because we want to adopt another style. No more bus parking, of course devensive tactics will be back to square one. So what? After what we've been through this season, we can't expect someone to come here and perform miracles over the night. We want to change, so let Conte or whoever else change. 

P.S.: Hazard would be burnt out soon under anyone, if he doesn't wake the hell up for good and start running his heart out for the club.

Im not even saying Conte would not succeed because its harder league. Imo he wouldnt succeed because of his training methods. It worked for him to play same players in italian league, but it wont work in england because they will get tired. Allegri, Ranieri, Ancelotti etc are all italians but IMO they could succeed in england. It has nothing to do with league or nationality. Its just Conte methods that IMO wont work here.

do we really know enough about his training methods, to say how everyone will react?  im sure mourinho runs them hard in training. and pocchettino is known for doing so, to an extreme level, and it has probably paid off

How do you know Conte training methods? Conte will make them warriors and they will fight if they don't then they will not play it's simple.Conte is too defensive WTF :lol: Conte plays balanced/attacking football.
