The Conte Thread

I'm just gonna say that the WORD IS OUT ABOUT CHELSEA AROUND THE GLOBE. You mention Conte and Chelsea right now and you get stuff like: 

"It's like magic."

and, 

"He and Klopp have their sides running in 5th gear."

 

FFS, it is such a JOY for me to hear the same words in my own head resonate so loudly after a decade of underachievement at CFC. We WILL gain a larger global following with this kind of confidence and speed of play  --hopefully everyone stays healthy. Need more players in the next windows.

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

And dude, really, if you haven't been able to watch these games, I am very sorry for you. My advice would be to do the impossible if necessarry, in order to watch the next game :D

Someone was saying that we still need reinforcements and I agree with him. I'd also like to add that, if we keep playing and winning like this, it will be much easier to attract players. They will beg their clubs to be allowed to sign for us. Who wouldn't want to play for such a strong and beautiful team with such a fantastic manager?

Trust me I'm beating myself over it but 50+h weeks don't allow for much recreational time. Especially bitter since the Everton game is meant to have been our best football since early 2010.

Wonderful sum-up btw, thank you for it. I wonder though if there's some further context or nuancies missing from your #2. Was it as simple as a 180 by Conte following getting trashed by Arsenal (which could suggest things are not going as much according to whatever summer's "plan" was as I'd prefer, not that adaptability isn't important but still) That ESPN interview seems to suggest that's the case. Were there any key injuries adding to that decision?

I think Conte is starting to settle in his position, he knows which players he can rely on and he's got the best out of players like Hazard and Costa.

A couple of weeks back, I watched you guys destroy Leicester City with my lad (increasingly becoming a huge Chelsea fan), Hazard and Costa bossed the match, I think the majority of chances came through them and Hazard seems to have been revived to his best (perhaps even beyond that). There was rumours going around the media that Conte may have been on the verge of being sacked (before your run), with the treadmill linking Hazard with a move elsewhere - if I recall correctly I think one team was Bayern.

Once you can get a central partnership formed at the back, perhaps even replacing Terry (he still has a role to play) but what I mean is you need to find another player like him.

I've mentioned in the past, I'm not convinced Cahill is of the same mould but with the reports linking certain players to Stamford Bridge, it would seem Conte has a good grip on what is needed and what can drive the club forward.

With the WBs droppimg back it gives us a back 5 and it happens quite alot.

But what Ive liked alot about this formation is whenever one of the lads has the ball hes got at least 2 open targets to pass to, And he doesn't just hold the ball waiting its 2 touches at most - pass and move. So entertaining to watch. I so wish we could have a do over wirg those north Londoners,

Can't wait to see how we cope with Spurs and City when they press us high. If we maintain our calmness at the back with good passing we can exploit them big time ;)
