We will panic and buy once the season starts and we are doing bad. 

Don't understand why they must wait this late? 

The sad thing is we probably won't even panic buy good players, either. We'll wait until the deadline day and panic buy/loan a couple of painfully average players that will barely play and be sold a year from now.

It's actually incredible that the season starts in mere days and we have yet to sign 2 new wing backs. Knowing for literally months that they're a priority position of need. 

Our club is great at getting good fees for players we sell and all things sponsorships/business deals. But when it comes to buying players and doing so in a timely manor they're terrible. United and City got a bunch of players in early and they've also played a number of matches more than us in their preseason to bed them in. They'll likely be able to hit the ground running. Morata will probably enter the Burnley match having played about 90 minutes total. Rüdiger likewise. Bakayoko will take a bit to even see the pitch. Any further signings will take time to settle.

Just super frustrating. I can't see us having a nightmare start or anything like we did a couple of years ago but won't be surprised if we lose/drop points against both Everton and Spuds in our first 3 games.

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 am more worried about Burnley than Everton though.

 

I expect us to come out there, and struggle to break them down.

My only concern is Hazard and Bakayoko not being ready for game 1. With them and Morata in good shape this team would look A LOT stronger. I hope they can be fit in 2-3weeks time ... on the other hand their injuries also have a "bright" side. Realizing that we need depth before transfer window closes is better than realizing that fact in October if one or two of are key players are missing than.

It's not matter of IF but WHEN we're going to conclude 3-4 players. Absolutely agree with people here that, 4-5 players (without GK) out of 7-8 we will sign this summer, should have been CFC players way before August considering injuries and the fact we're selling our star players with all the loans but who knows what's going inside the club. I certainly don't.

 Conte knows and that's why he's unhappy and clearly shows that to everyone (in)directly while transmitting negative energy (in direction to the club, players and fans) not because he's behavior is childish but because lack of quantity and quality in players he is getting and he's getting players very slow. And yes that could cost us big but hope not.

Players we're connected with are:

1) Barkley (rumors saying if not this weekend then next week we'll try to close the deal and get him) 

2) Alex Sandro (rumors saying when Juve take Spinazzola back they will sell for £70 + odds, everything will be done in 24-48h)

2) Ox (rumors saying he didn't decide and still wait to see if CFC are going to buy another RB)

4) Renato Sanches (rumors saying he's still our big wish and we'll wait for his and Bayern decision, maybe until the end of August)

First 4 are our main targets.

5) Drinkwater (reports saying it's fake news with purpose to make one of our targets and their clubs decide faster in our favor, probably Barkley and Sanches)

6) Llorente (for now just a rumor) 

3/4 from our list will certainly arrive by reports and sources, maybe all 4.

Let's buy some 🍿 and chill a little because it's August and it's big lottery now, nobody can guarantee you what you're going to get. It depends on how strong contacts you've been made already with your targets and their clubs, plus lions (pounds) on the table. A lots of zeros.

Conte says we 'need more players to improve our squad' both in terms of quality and the size of it. #CFC

Conte says it is important the club know his position on how many new players we need, and not the press. #CFC

Conte says it is important to keep the positive things from a good season - as our system was - and change the negative things. #CFC

Conte says playing Morata and Batshuayi together is an option, adding he wants to play the Spaniard as a no.9 this season. #CFC - When pedro & Hazard are injured, we have no another option...

PR manager just confirmed that everyone involved knew the decision in January and that the allegations that Conte wrote a text message to Costa to.inform he is leaving are nonsense.
Well...

PR not sure if to believe him. Why didn't Conte answered?

That's not quite what Steve Atkins meant. He reconfirmed that Diego and his representatives were informed in January that our Brazilian Spaniard would not be a part of the manager's plans after the end of the 2016/17 season. He did not specifically deny that Antonio had sent the infamous text message, indeed the message must be real, or no lawyer would be making so much of it. Atkins just made it clear that Diego already knew in January that the club did not want him to continue beyond the end of last season and pointed out that the claim that Diego had heard it for the first time in a text message is just nonsense.

The lawyer's description of the text message is a pretty obvious and shallow attempt to manufacture some extra leverage for his client. His strange, and all too transparent, claim that Antonio had 'released' Diego in that text is silly and will fool no one.

Antonio did answer, and did so in the same way he has done several times previously. Steve Atkins just added a specific response, on behalf of the club, to comments made by Diego's lawyer earlier this week. (Because the question asked of Antonio was about those comments.)

Here are his exact words : "So the lawyer's argument, that Antonio as a coach has forced the player out by a text message in June is just nonsense". 

To me that is denying that Conte informed Costa of the decision via sms, I'm thinking of something along the lines of "Good luck for the next chapter of your career";..

What's the issue anyway ? One thing we're sure of is that everyone involved knew the decision on January, starting from here Conte didn't inform anyone of anything.

So, as everyone was obviously suspecting, Costa and his staff trying to leverage some nonsense to ease his departure, there it is, for those who still doubted who initiated the whole issue.

God would people stop overreacting, it's absolutely pathetic. He already said the board and himself are working to find the right solution, so they know what they want and are working on targets. Not every transfer can be done in straight away. It takes time to negotiate. If anybody has actually read about the transfer process, it takes anywhere from a few days up to weeks depending on the situation. Everybody chooses to take the negative from everything Conte speaks about transfers. What is he supposed to say to the press? He's not going to speak on issues which are between himself and the club. The quicker people get that through their heads, the better. It's fine though, carry on your agenda against the board. Fuck me. 

17 players for 4 competitions.  4 august.  over-reaction? ok:cig:

Well it's two competitions really the league and the champions league. The Carling Cup there will be wholesale changes and the January window will be open when the FA cup starts.

Conte probably got scammed by our board to sign that new contract with fake promises. We only delivered with Morata because we absolutely needed a striker.
