Emotions are high but I think what Conte achieved is even harder than what Jose achieved in 04/05.

Incredible how he turned this team into PL champions, we'll forever be grateful for his job, even tough we all know next season will be hard like hell and players will sleep.

I told you that with Conte Chelsea had very high chance of winning. Staying focused however is not over yet.

Right mate. Good luck against Real in the Champions League final, I hope you win it. You have a great team and deserve it.

We still have to get to the final :P. With Real it will be difficult but we can do it if we play the perfect match.

Antonio Conte is unlikely to stay at Stamford Bridge for the remainder of the three years on his deal with the club, claimed the Sunday Supplement panel.

If the club doesn't back him with transfers etc. he WILL leave.

 

It's the main reason he left Juventus. Because he felt the Juve board didn't back him enough. And Juve is his dream club so that says something.

Roman needs to do everything in his power to stop that from happening

Indeed because I don't know a name at the moment of a manager who might do even better than Conte right now.

I don't really like Simeone's style of football..not that Antonio is the most offensive minded trainer around but still.

Poch is already too far up Spurs' asses. 

 

Conte has to stay at Chelsea for the long-term. We are craving for a manager to stay longer than 4 years and not getting axed by Roman. 

Conte staying longer will depend a lot on how we do in the Champions League, and keep doing well domestically, it would be great to win the Champions League again someday, but with Real Madrid and co around its just too much to ask these days, maybe with the right players available we could give it a push again, i miss seeing us competing in the latter stages of the competition. Cheers

Indeed. People forget that Chelsea was 2nd placed in 03/04 season. With the amount of money invested before the start of 04/05 season, I never understood the fuzz about Mourinho. What Conte did is something really special.

I am getting fed up with all the sudden Allegri band wagoners who suddenly claim the Allegri is superior to Conte. Even respected journalists like David Amoyal have jumped on the bandwagon. Typical , short minded football fan opinion.

Mostly, the people who tell me Allegri > Conte are Arsenal fans (because he's linked to succeed Wenger) or Juventus gloryhunters who started following Juve since last season.

 

A complete joke in my opinion. Juventus is the overall best team in Serie A and will surely win their sixth consecutive title this season. The reason they are where they are today is all thanks to Conte. Before Conte stepped in, Juventus finished 7th 2 years in a row and were on the brink of becoming like what AC Milan and Inter have become nowadays. Of course you have to give Juve's board some credit as well for turning everything around but it all happens on the pitch, and Conte has done wonders for them. The reason he left was because he felt their board didn't back him enough with transfer (funny because nowadays Juventus spent big) and that left a bad taste in the mouths of many Juventinos.

Allegri won 1 title with Milan. After that, Conte came in and started Juve's run. Of course Milan had financial problems but so had Juve. Conte was able to turn everything around and get results and win stuff and Allegri? Nothing. Conte left Juventus, Allegri chickened out of Milan and went to Juventus and gets Conte's squad, profits of it and wins titles and got 1 UCL final (and probably a second soon enough).

If they got Spalletti they would also dominate the Serie A. Juventus are a team with a solid foundation liad by Antonio. I'm not saying Allegri is a bad coach or something but I'm getting tired of all the band wagoners and even some dumb Chelsea fans claiming they might've prefered him because of his European record.

Look at Bayern Munich. Heynckes laid the foundations for this team, Pep comes in and dominates the league with them and so does Carlo at the moment. Bayern Munich and Juventus are big teams with solid foundations nowadays and good squads and resources.

 

I'm very delighted with Antonio and don't know any other manager who might do a better job than him. If he wins us the double this season, it can only mean we are in for many other successful years. I'm very grateful that he is our manager.

 

Forza Antonio!

 

EDIT: I see we have a Juventino here @AlesJuve what is your opinion on this subject? I still hope your team and mainly the living legend Gigi Buffon win the UCL because I dislike those primadonna's at Real Madrid and you guys deserve it much more. And it would be Allegri's own legacy at Juventus because, like I said, he's profiting off Conte's laid foundations IMO.

I have to defend Mourinho here. You also forget that almost the same team won the title in 2014/2015. I don't want to take anything away from Conte but everyone who watched Jose's Chelsea of 2004-2007 will agree that team was a different class. We should still be thankful that we had Jose at his best, when he was probably the best manager in the world. Of course it's now gone for him. Next season will be a huge test for Conte also playing in Europe. 

The 14/15 squad was not as good as this one.

I like everything we are hearing from Antonio regarding his plans for the summer. Saying that our squad is undermanned, and under skilled, is just a statement of the obvious of course, but the fact that he is prepared to say it anyway wins confidence. Whether this season yields two trophies, one trophy or none, there can be no doubt Antonio is the right man to take us forward. I hope no one in the hierarchy will seek to veto any of his transfer targets. By all means offer an opinion to the manger and try hard to persuade him if you think he needs to change his mind but, in the end, the man in the chair should make the footballing decisions.

Anyone feeling they spot a bit of self-contradiction from me here, is correct. I've admitted many times that if I had Roman's money I would certainly have attempted to buy the club, and if that attempt had been successful, I would now be making all the transfer decisions myself. The only explanation I can offer for this hypocrisy is to say that it's about trust. In that fantasy world, I'd trust myself. In this real one, I trust Antonio. The Italian is only the second Chelsea manager, after Jose, to whom I feel a personal commitment, and I go all the way back to Tommy Docherty. That's a lot managers who have come and gone without making a personal impact on me. We have a good one here. I believe he can eclipse even what The Special One was able to achieve. Don't blow it board.

This is a huge problem. It happened after us winning 09/10 and 14/15 titles so I am afraid it can happen again. If the board doesn't get players Conte wants he will be mad. And then even after winning EPL next season everything can change. We have seen it before plenty of times. :(
