as sad as it is to say, conte out! He's lost the dressing room, tries to show everyone what a thin squad he has seemingly at all times (we get it conte, it's not ideal) rather than focusing on getting the best results out of his players, he gives off an air of "what can I do? we're fucked anyways because of the board", he's isolated luiz for seemingly no reason (pretty sure luiz' injury isn't the only reason we haven't seen him a while), he handled the Costa situation very poorly, now he's mishandling eden hazad by playing him out of position all the time and subbing him off bizarrely, at the most crucial juncture of our club's relationship with eden.... he needs to go ASAP

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

If you are a cook and you need to make a cake, but you do not really have ingredients of the best quality, you still need to try and make that cake.

Conte is saying he's not being given the dough and it's giving him the kneadle :)

He really screw up with the Costa thing. 

But I will still give him next season. 

We need to give managers another chance to redeem themselves. It might change things with how we work.

Christ! People still going on about that? Let's just pretend as if Costa hadn't wanted to leave!

Nah he handle it very bad. 

Conte is too infuriated. 

That was the beginning of his demise. 

Nonetheless I would still give him a go next season.

Handled it badly? If Conte had really done that, we would have likely gone off the rails from January onward and lost the title. People often overlook the fact that Conte managed to keep Costa on board and group dynamic good for the last few months of last season. Maybe sending the message to say he's no longer wanted wasn't the best of ideas but even if Conte hadn't done that, there's no guarantee Costa would have stayed on, given how much he wanted to go back to Madrid.

Conte handled the Costa situatiom exactly how he should have, like a boss.

Costa was acting like a child. He got put in his place and instead of acting like a man and taking it on the chin (like Luiz) he sulked until he got his move.

The sad thing is with this club is that it doesn't take much to lose the dressing room. At the first sign of a season going bad the players act like a bunch of girls and start throwing their toys out the pram.

Players don't get free passes because of the past, so why should managers? Conte has done a poor job this season no matter what way it's spun.

Loads of players have got free passes in the past. We are talking about a manager that pulled us up from midtable to winning the league. Everyone knows he needed some decent investments to build on.

Yes they do. Torres got a free pass for quite some time only and only thanks to his past. If he was a random no-name he wouldn't have been afforded 4 weeks let alone 4 years.

Im responding to Polo's comment which means im talking about the eyes of the fans. Kalou, Malouda and Anelka were getting the piss taken out of them the season after they helped deliver the double while the same success protected Carlo from a lot of criticism.

You can blame the recruitment on the fact we are not retaining the title but the fact we are odds on to dive into Europa next season is a lot to do with Conte and his tactics, man management and manchild like behavior. The fact we were comfortably in top 4 and even looked a good bet for second till his latest episode makes this all the more hard to take.

I will give Conte another year if he can finish in the top four.  

Thing is bud he don't want to stay.

And he's on borrowed time with the board.

And the players are never going to try for him, patently obvious Sunday.

That's the key thing for me. Everything else aside, if you lose the players, you're basically done as a manager at a top club and based on the city performance, I feel he has lost the dressing room...

Why? Why give Conte another year when it's blatantly obvious that he doesn't want to be here? Why persist with him when he's not getting through to the players anymore?

Honestly, I don't know what's more surprising - the fact that he's still in the job or there haven't been any stories about his job being under threat. I don't wish anything bad on others but it's a stark contrast to say 6-7 years ago.

Because unlike AVB and Scolari, Conte has a track record at not only Chelsea but other major European clubs to fall back on, and unlike Jose we ain't 16th.

He is not the boss.

He may have the track record but is he capable of turning the current situation around? Is he motivated to do so? The signs are pointing to 'NO'. So, why persist with him? Even you said he's been poor this season. If he has been trying different things out to change our form, to improve our results but to no avail, then think we as fans might still be patient with him. But he's not. He keeps on doing the same things that haven't worked much this season and expect different results. He's become so rigid, stubborn and disconnected. Was still doing OK till December, despite some inconsistencies and problems but everything suddenly went south the second we hit 2018.
