  1. wingbacks a concern again, hate this shoehorning players into positions they arent familliar with. Back 3 im happy with and the midfield. Cesc should be ok tonight as West Brom's centre mids have no pace either. Sturridge rondon is a good front 2 though, and i think Brunt is decent tbh that is a concern too
  2. why what? Conte to stay? i like him and think he is a good coach.
  3. heart says the 3 days rest and full weeks planning will do wonders and we will win with ease, provided a striker starts. Head says if some of the players really are downing tools, nothing will change and WBA will come at us with no fear and spring a surprise. FWIW if we do lose, id still like to see Conte last until end of season.
  4. I cant say i am over confident for this one, tbh. But on the other hand, i could see us hammering them, making up for the last 2 games. Lose this one though and i dread to think what will happen
  5. Antonio Conte - Now Officially Manager

    think if he was going, hed have been sacked by now.

    I genuinely dont think it'll happen now i have had a chance to think about it properly. At least not today anyway Seen some people say a meeting is happening today, that true or just twitter rumours?
  7. Antonio Conte - Now Officially Manager

    He's a great bloke id keep him personally, but i would be surprised if he survives this. Few things he must fix if he does Stop playing Bakayoko, give him weeks on the bench, just drop him. We had a LB on the bench tonight, who must be fit to even be named there, instead we play Zappa LWB. giroud should have started, end of, and I'd give Moses a break. He has regressed Cesc on for Willian was the wrong sub, and baffling. I'd have taken a CB off, keep Willian's pace and directness in the team. You almost lose that instantly with Cesc, and his great ability is to spot a run off the shoulder of the last CB, that wasnt going to happen tonight with Pedro and Hazard uptop, they like it into feet. There seems a lack of ability to make subtle changes or tweaks to turn a game in our favour. Jose was great at it (before the end) we could go 2-0 down and id still fancy a point at best. Now, no way All in all, keep him and back him this summer. Head says he is gone by end of week
  8. agree. Cahill has been iffy lately, but suspect he will still start. Masive rudiger fan, so pacey. Little nervous at times on the ball but his passing is good too
  9. start Cesc and i think we will win (and give Giroud enough minutes to have an impact) play 2 defensive mids and i will freak. Bakayoko = bench
  10. They also have the new manager 'bounce'. It is going to be very very difficult. bournemouth tore us a new one ffs, at home!
  11. If Giroud is on the bench he must get at least half hour. He is fit enough, played 20mins v Swansea for Arsenal the day before we signed him. Sometimes Conte likes to bring a sub on with 8mins or so left, not enough IMO at times. On a side note, I see a lot of media sh*te that if we lose they think Conte will be sacked... I hope not, think he is brilliant. Does anyone else think he might?
  12. Antonio Conte - Now Officially Manager

    Its not a blip. We have been playing sh*te (bar the odd game) for a while. Pops at the board regularly, he doesnt want to be here. Clear as day
  13. Antonio Conte - Now Officially Manager

    He looked proper f**ked off pre match, too. Honestly think he wants out, but his pride means he will see it out until the board sack him
  14. Antonio Conte - Now Officially Manager

    Never once wanted him to go, still dont. Love the guy But i think the mob upstairs in the boardroom will be losing faith last few weeks. Worrying times
  15. Olivier Giroud to Chelsea

    Drinkwater's unveiling...
