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

How the fuck he didn't win an Italian Cup with that Juventus side ? He's awful domestic cup manager, has to be said.

Think we cover that as well. He's been bad at cup as shown in the CL with juventus and this season. But if we win the pl every season then I'll settle with that. 

PL always Trump everything else... Aside a cl.

We're f***ed then, because we need to compete for the CL and CL is a cup competition. Our superstars want to win the CL and Conte would need to up his game with us next season.

Yes he can cover his bad cup runs with the PL, but are we really going to win the league every season? I rather win something then nothing.

Honestly I was so sure that we lose the cup like in Conte's first season with Juventus. I'm going to check when and how he was eliminated from Italian Cup two following seasons.

Look at United and Chelsea last decade. Winning the CL is very rare compared to winning the pl. 

Manager still young and that's one aspect he will want to improve the coming seasons.

Even if we don't win the CL, we need to win something in order for our season to not be a complete failure.

If Conte is bad at cup runs, that rules out LC and FAC and potentially CL. I hope Conte improves his management skills and gets the players he needs otherwise he won't last long in Chelsea...

Another cup failure for Conte.

I'd be really annoyed had we not won the league in such a fashion, but his selection choices left alot to be desired.

He needs to realise Matic shouldn't be starting any games of note going forward at the very least.

A lot of post-match analysis on Conte's ability in cup completions. It was a final in which anything could happen.

He should have started Cesc over Matic and possibly Pedro over Willian. Like seriously, these are obvious things for several reasons. Love him but he deserves the criticism today.

He will last if he continues to do good in the pl. 

And as long as we give a fight in the cup competitions I will be happy. 

Today you saw fight from Costa, azpi, David luiz. That's what I like to see then go out meekly.

Well people need to be consistent here. 

If your going to look at his record in cup run and take it as gospel, then you need to look at his record in the league and take it as gospel. 

The record shows that he is consistently good in the league and consistently bad in the cup. 

If we assume that is the case in the next 4 years I'll take that. 

If we win the league every year and win nothing else I'll take it! 

But of course no one believes that and realizes that cup requires a lot of luck. Had Moses not been so stupid in sending of we might have had a chance. But as well we was not prepared after winning the league. We switch of so badly and that's down to everyone.

Today´s loss was on him not starting Cesc and taking too long to sub off Moses, which proved decisive in the end, as soon as William came on it changed the game, but we were already a man down, eventough we managed to score and eaqualize, ou fate was already sealed with the Moses red card and the lack of desire and focus my most of the players was worrying, specially in an FA Cup final, so it showed when Arsenal scored their 2nd goal, yes its frustrating but thats football, there is always the other team, not just us, they had the better day and won, it happens. Conte will need to adress many things in the summer. Cheers

I agree that Conte's cup record isn't the best (excluding the Champions League) but his 4 defeats did come against Napoli, Roma, Lazio and Arsenal. Just find it strange he can get the better of them in the league but not in the cup.

Conte: "To win (the league) in this way with 30 wins, to arrive in the FA Cup final, with not a big squad - I think it was incredible."

Conte: "This season was incredible for us. Every single player put all of himself in the game." Says the improvement was amazing.

It's easy to say now Conte should have played Player X and Player Y but the big problem was we just didn't turn up today. The desire, commitment and that winning mentality weren't there. Even if Fabregas had started, there's no guarantee we wouldn't have played the way we did and it's not like we haven't played that diabolical before with Fabregas in the XI.
