The Conte Thread

I think we'll be bringing in at least 4 quality signings this summer. There's no doubt in my mind that the board have realized that they made a huge error in not reinforcing the side last year. Whether or not the players we do bring in are Conte's choices is the biggest question. If the club reward Conte with his absolute first choice targets then I think we'll be dark horses for the CL.

If you look at this season's, though, even without Conte getting his first choices he was able to do this well. The sign of an excellent coach who can get the best out of what he's got.

Exactly. And we are going into the Champions League next season, so we need to prepare a team capable of competing.

I look at Juventus and see a team we should aspire to be like. Dogged defensively, tactical adaptive to different formations at anytime in a match, two wingbacks who are fast, energetic, can dribble and have a good cross, a striker upfront who can hold up the ball incase of long balls. 

mandzukic Higuain Dybala 

Sandro Pjanic Khedira Alves 

Cheilini Bonucci Barzagli 

Buffon 

Vs

Hazard (Striker) Pedro 

Mendy (CM) kante Azpi 

Ake Luiz Cahill 

With a few signings, we can put out a team on their level imo. The main areas where they blow us out of the water is their wingbacks and back 3 (especially wingbacks)

(Sandro) Mendy to provide speedy, energetic runs and take our attacking on the left side with hazard to a whole new level.  

A striker who knows how to hold up the ball and win aerial balls, so that we have another outlet to escape pressing.(Morata, Bellotti) People on here underestimate this but it's a very big tactical advantage to have. 

A midfielder who can pass and dribble or is very comfortable under pressure, but is a good tackler (Nzonzi, Fabinho, Naby keita?)  

A few proper signings and we'll be dark horses for the CL easily

No important player has been injured this season. Of course Conte did very well, but you still need a lil' bit of luck. You can always invest more, but the buys of last season have been nothing but a success story so far.

Going toe to toe with the likes of Bayern or Barcelona is going to be very difficult, especially when taking all of the games into consideration. A lot is based on the fitness level, not sure Chelsea's plan is just there yet. But confidence isn't a bad thing, club can look forward to be back in Europe's premier club competition. That's for sure!

You increase your luck if you eat healthy and train right. That's what Conte did.

Sure, but it works both ways, and as a said above, a bit of luck has to come with it.

Could see him from where was sat in East and he just does not stop! All game on his feet directing etc. So much passion and involvement 

Loved that he thanked the Boro fans as well. Nice gesture and just a nice guy

I am usually the guy that preaches for patience for the manger... 

Can we please sack this piece of shit imposter ?

Every manager that starts Ivanovic,Cahill,Matic and Willian should be sacked immediatly. There is no fucking reason to play them.

Doesn't help that we have Belgian Messi playing 1 good game in every 900 minutes to confirm his untouchable status.

Doesn't help that we have the worst Brazilians ever born in our team.

Sack every manager until someone drops Hazard, Ivanovic and co. 

Season is gone. 9-11 placement is what we are looking at, and judging by what i am seeing, we will be there for longer than Liverpool. Bye Bye glory days.

HAHA! If you guys don't know what an absolute THUNDERCUNT kneejerk twat looks like, here is a pretty good example.

Print what you wrote that day on an A4 paper and literally eat your WORDS. You owe it to Conte's amazing changes since that day. ;-)

On a serious note, I really hope we annihilate Arseanal in the final, that we really ruin their season which looks much likely to end without a CL place for the first time in eons. It would be soooo poetically unforgettable considering that their short-lived bliss in beating us with 3 goals was the catalyst to our success and their season's miserable ending  :-D

Nice gesture to laud the away team and support at the end. He knows exactly what he is doing and it is a refreshing change from the Jose antics days. 

Long may it continue!

Without Conte's work there would be this Juventus today. Our defense BBC was created by him. He has highlighted Chiellini, Marchisio, Bonucci, Barzagli and rejoined in Buffon the desire to win and stretched Pirlo's career of 4 years. With Conte Vidal lifted the maximum of his quality. Conte had the courage to bet on Pogba (a tip this summer if I was in you would try to buy Poga under Conte would be devastating in partnership with Kante). Allegri is a good coach and with a strong team he can win. Conte is a fucking conqueror. "Make the win" with hard work as done to Juventus and soon -3 points to Chelsea.
Allegri is better suited to lead teams where everything is fine. For me the best is Conte, otherwise he would not defeat Allegri's Milan and Ibrahimovic at the first year unbeaten(despite having mediocre strikers)

It seems like a century has passed :blush:

 

2011... the year after you got knocked out by Fulham in the Europa League... showed the state of Juventus and how much Conte did for them.

Absolutely brilliant manager and gentleman, but Im already thinking about next season in europe. 

Conte has been quite poor there and even the great juve ditched 3 man defence in europe games after Conte left. 

Will be very interesting to see what formation we play and how successful we are.

They just did a 343 against Monaco though... Completely controlled the game.

Right now Juve has much better team than when Conte was in charge. Better strikers and better wingbacks. Besides three amazing centre backs, Buffon and couple of great midfielders, that Juve team was filled with average players like Lichtsteiner, Quaglirella, Matri etc. So comparing what Allegri has achieved and what Conte achieved is a bit harsh.

Haha, thats been whole season, he never sits down, he is always jumping, screaming, running, he is always involved in the game. Sometimes I wonder how many km he is doing through 90 minutes, might be more than some Berbatov matches back in the day :D

The class he showed after the final whistle and going to Boro's players and fans, just show what great MAN we have in charge of our team. We should keep him for long and the board to give him the opportunity to buy the players he wants. We should be more than grateful we have Don Antonio Conte as our coach :)
