This is what we and especially Roman were waiting for years. Other teams are now gonna examine us and try to stop us playing! And with Jose we always used to stop other teams playing (Even Moyes' Man Utd :D).

Hello, I am a Juventus italian fan and maybe I can help you to understand which kind of coach Conte is...(sorry for my english, I hope you will understand) When he arrived in Juventus, he fo

I think the fact that we stuck to our principles, pressing them high up the pitch in spurts throughout the game and more importantly, passing out from the back, even with a few mistakes (note - it goe

So, Pep looked at our squad and said we need 10 new players, didn't want it.

No doubt that Pep is a good manager, but he hasn't shaken the tag that he only wants to go to the "best" team (read: most money, best on paper) in the league and isn't up for a challenge.

Seems that we only needed 1 CB who can play with the ball, and 1 LWB.  Most importantly, 1 manager who can be flexible and get the most out of the players he's got and put them in to position to succeed with lots of hard work.  

There's no evidence Pep actually "said" that. You can't take what the media says as face value fact. What Pep actually said about our side (and the only thing I've heard him say about Chelsea so far) is that together with Liverpool, we're up there with his team challenging for the title. He said that AFTER Liverpool outclassed us at the Bridge and obviously before the formation and personnel changes. He obviously saw the potential in our squad.

He also said Conte was an underrated signing for us in his introductory press conference as City manager. Bottom line is he never said we need 10 players. If anything, he's been complementary.

Is Alderwierld due back before our game with Spurs? If he ain't i reckon we will stuff them too, reckon Luiz and Azpi will be enough to nullify Kane.

It'll happen sooner or later but interested to see how we respond in this current system when we concede the opening goal of a match. Not counting the West Ham game since we didn't play our first team, although it did suggest we won't have issues responding since we did create chances and could/should have scored a few.

Nothing I can say could convey just how much I appreciate the Don. And I know all Blues everywhere feel the same.

So lets raise our voices to the footballing gods and scream his name.

When I mentuined before hickoff that Everton had gone 3-4-3 someone stated that they changed to Citehs formation whern they played and totally shut them down and they will do the same to us!!

So other teams HAVE studied us. Not just any team but one wirh the best defensive record in the league this season.

Everyone who is interviewed by the press about Conte talks about how much worj his teams do about the teams they play tactics.

Ive supported us long enuf to know we will have a cock ip or 2 but no bullshit I trust Conte, Hes done something we have ALL wanted (from Roman down) that is made us the most exciting team to watch while keeping clean sheets. And I want to thank him and the lads for putting this daft grin on my  face

I know a lot has been said about our defense, as it should, 5 clean sheets in a row is like an alternate universe, but when I said we don't look at all like a defensive team, I didn't have realized yet we have the best attack in the league, with 26 goals. Even if Arsenal and/or Liverpool become top scorers tomorrow, it just shows that this team has an attack vocation. 16 goals in 5 matches averages over three per match and we haven't played anyone from relegation fold but Hull in those matches. While Leicester aren't on the best and United continue to be stock laughing, we've overcome two of the best defenses of the league among those in Soto away and Everton.

Top of the table, best attack, biggest goal difference, best defense streak and second best defense in general. Not bad at all - especially because those stats include the horrendous 0-3 against Arsenal (which was a blessing in disguise as we've changed from water to wine ever since).

Do we have a function to view the most "liked" posts in a thread? I've unfortunately not been able to watch a single 90 this season and have yet to form my mind one way or the other about him. Alternatively, could anyone describe the main pro and contra camps (it's never too early for those to form)?

Right, I picked that up from around these parts, actually.  I suppose that's what I get.

Cheers.

I would dearly love to see a vid of Roman thru the last fre games. Hes a real football fan as well as loving the club he owns. I saw that small bit of him in during the game and that grin was as big as mine.

He also deserves a clap and a song after what he has done for us. Roman and the Don seem to have a good relationship and thats good for us.

Conte is 'inspiring' football with the 3-4-3. Already been copied a few times this season. Now Spurs.

Wheter it's food, fashion, cars, art, architecture or football, Italians don't know how to not set trends.
