You'll eat another humble pie in December and come back later with other ridiculous statements.

To be honest, Conte is just another 'shit on a stick football' merchant with no fresh ideas so in that sense I'm not even angry the board fucked him over.

Ironic of him to say the squad is small when he opted not to keep some of the younger players.

Or perhaps Conte isn't really keen on using youth players. The comment from him about young players aren't patient enough is just weird to say the least.

You wrote here that Courtois was overrated and he was not learning. Do you think fans like you or the board has patience for young players?

Conte realistically speaks here. The squad quality and quantity does not match the ambitions.

he has been making the same mistakes over and over and over again. Doesn't seem to be learning from it!

And of course this humble pie addict.

This guy is just not a top goalkeeper. Every keeper would look world class hiding behind Atletico Madrid's defence and making the odd save every 5 games or so.

Christ! How does saying "starting to think" equate to making an outright statement on the point? And if you had even bothered reading the other posts in Courtois' thread during that time, you would know the main wasn't even about him being overrated. :doh:

Someone described Chelsea managers as golden donkeys. Yes you'll be extremely well paid but will have to toe the hierarchy line and will have little or zero influence on most club matters.

I wish I was a golden donkey instead of a tinpot twat.

You should do that every morning for thinking Courtois was overrated.:D

I remember the posts obviously. That's why I think many fans are fickle, mostly wrong, don't have the patience, yet expect Conte to give time to young players, which they don't know as well as him.

I remember those posts well enough to know that they will overreact and become the hardest critics of him and the young players after a few bad results.

Just listening to him, reading his words and all what is not happening with transfers, I'm starting to think there is a huge power struggle between him and the board. What he wants is not what the board want and vice versa.

If we start well it will be almost a two finger salute by him to the board, and the opposite if we start bad he will sacked.

This is my opinion, I'm seeing cracks.

Now I do agree that board should not meddle in manager affairs and I don't like someone else buying players for the squad without the manager, but I also must defend the club and say that it is quite risky to give full transfer control to a manager who has been with the club for only 1 year, don't you think? Most of people mention Sir Alex for the transfer control, but he has spent quite a bit of time at United to be able to earn such a right. Wenger also has full transfer controll, look where it brought Arsenal in last 10 years? :D

I agree look what happened when Mourinho was giving too much power. 

Let it be like that till next season. 

See how he handles and not be a one season wonder.... 

That being said we are still gotten players he has been interested. Baka, Rudiger and morata. 

And second the only first squad player we sold was matic but he was replaced with Bakayoko. And morata for Costa.
