  1. Antonio Conte - Now Officially Manager

    Like I said in response to a different point, but which applies equally validly here, you know NONE of this to be fact, it's just you interpreting conjecture on the part of the press, or a list of players who, for whatever reasons, either weren't for sale at a price we were willing to pay, or who opted to sign for another team. How do you know Lukaku and Belotti were ahead of Moratta in either Conte's choice or that of the board? I'll tell you. You don't know, any more than the press, the TV pundits, the Twatteratti, me or anyone else in here. It's great to have opinions, but not when those opinions are presented as concrete fact, and then used to abuse, insult or belittle other posters in a smug condescending manner. Unless, of course, you truly do have inside knowledge of the club's transfer policy meetings and target list. In which case, excellent - give us all the insider knowledge. Now. With proof. Not a lot to ask really.

    20 minutes into the game and you've already written it off? Does look like Barca teach how to dive and con the ref at a very early stage in a player's development, though.

    He might have demanded, but I don't think he would have got anywhere near what City have spunked out for him. And I think he would have struggled the same as any other manager would. But, that's just my opinion, not something I have just parroted back from a pundit or other press outlet.

    I'm not sure how Guardiola would have coped with less of a budget to spend in a vastly more competitive league. He's never been tested in a league with more than one challenger and where the likes of Drinkwater and Bakayoko were considered top-class purchases.
  5. And it was really christian of the BT director to keep the camera on Willian all the time he was walking off, and then down the tunnel, despite the match having restarted. Still, with BT's falling audiences they have to try desperately to generate some sort of controversy. I expect he just went straight off for a piss and a bit of a blub, because he appeared to be genuinely upset at being taken off, but he was back out on the bench with the other substitutes a few minutes later, and seemed genuinely quite happy at the end of the match. Still, opinions and arseholes, eh?

    I do like how people in here know definitively "what Roman wants"! I'm not saying you might not be right, but is just press guesswork, that we, as a fanbase, keep trotting out as gospel, as is We don't know that. It's a nice narrative for promulgating some agenda or other, but it is just pure speculation. Roman has NEVER spoken in public about the club, the various managers or the team, so we don't actually KNOW that "an attractive style" is what "roman desperately wants at the club" and Guardiola has never spoken about Chelsea or the manager's position. It's just like when people in here state catagorically that player X is earning gazillions per week, or that @Davey Baby has found a cure for his incontinence problem. No-one knows. Oh, and this isn't specifically aimed at @enigma, it's all over this and other forums, and repeated all over the press and television because they have to make sh*t up to sell their sh*t-roll papers or get their sheep-bait clicks.
  7. Yeah, because you really would want to leave out one of your better players just because he wasn't grinning from ear to ear at being substituted.

    I'm not sure about Conte, if I'm honest, but I find it interesting that the majority of the posters in here seem to want him gone, whilst the majority of the actual match-going fans sing his name loud and proud, every match, regardless of whether we are winning or losing. I've said many times before. Support the team and the manager. That is all.

    Oh, OK. Exact quotes of what the man said, but you have either a crystal ball or an online lie-detector, so you know it's not true? Yeah, Ok.
  10. Willy Caballero

    So saving what was a pretty decent shot counts as a "mistake" now? Shock-horror, goalkeeper does his job!!!!! Weird world, sometimes
  11. Don't argue with that bloke, @Spiller86 He knows all about football because he watches Sky and BT a lot. And they tell him all about that football. Tactics, who's good and who's bad, everything. And he's very studious, he knows it all.
  12. Antonio Conte - Now Officially Manager

    What that link actually shows is that he has a contract until 2019 and he intends to honour it, so the exact opposite of what you are trying to claim it says. Not saying that he doesn't want out, just that your evidence provided is wrong.
