  1. Antonio Conte - Now Officially Manager

    The problem is we are disagreeing about different things. I agree with you about the board, I agree with most people on this forum. So it's not about being right or wrong, the board will most likely be sh*t again in the summer, nothing new there. What I don't agree with is people trying to make excuses for the manager errors Conte has made this season, this is not due to the board, surely no one can really sit there and say Conte doesn't make subs till the 80th min because of the board, Conte will never play a back 4 because of the board, we always go defensive because of the board, they are poor excuses. It doesn't matter if you are Chelsea, Burnley or Exeter, that is poor management.

    No one can argue the board have f**ked up for a number of years but this doesn't excuse simple manager errors. Does the board affect these decisions: Being stubborn and sticking to a back 5 - No Not making subs till the 80th min- No Not being able to recognise a football match changing momentum and influencing that match - No Keep playing out of form players - No Falling out with players - No Going defensive when leading - No Playing no forward - No There's more but just a few to show the excuse of blaming the board, not getting Walker or any other BS doesn't take away from Conte making simple, stubborn and basic manager errors. Other managers with less squads and lower of quality of players won't make as many mistakes. Defiantly not for over 3 months.

    Have you got any prove Pep wanted Alves as his number 1 fullback at the age of 35 who has never played in the PL?, maybe as backup for his experience around the changing room and for the CL but you don't go from a 35 yr old to a 50m PL player. Walkers representatives would have known of City's interest before the summer, probably had the deal in writing, there was no chance Chelsea was getting him. Because of one sentence where Conte says we tried to buy Walker which literally could mean anything but by your thinking this means it was Conte's top target, we was in pole position with no other clubs and the board f**ked it up. You blame everything on the board and the only reason you can find for Conte f**king up the last 4 months is the board , like I have said before if we can all blame our employers for our mistakes what a great world, chuck in a pay rise while your there. As much as you love too the board isn't the reason for Conte's basic managerial mistakes, that comes down to himself.

    What that idiot seems to think is everything is black and white, because Conte said we tried to buy Walker he is tying to make out we was in the running. For all we know Chelsea could have enquired and the City deal was done and it was too late, most likely scenario is true. The deal between City and Walker was most likely done way before summer. VVD deal was done long before it happened, he always was going to Liverpool but let's find any reason to excuse all Conte's mangerial mistakes.

    Same old sh*t about Walker, Danilo etc. How can you sign players who didn't even want to sign for the club might aswell mention about missing out on Ox. Just because Conte mentioned he liked Walker in one interview means he was number 1 transfer target, it's like asking every manager if they like Messi.

    It's all the board's fault, making 4 months of simple errors is all the board's fault, we have only just seen Emerson play.
  7. It's good to see someone on the left who can get past defenders and make runs.
  8. I would rather play with 11 men and not needing Kante to run for 5 to make up the difference.
  9. It's quite a simple change but Conte can't see it for some reason.
  10. A manager can stop the damage before it happens then he doesn't have to react. Baka has been walking all game.
  11. We could all see it though, they was getting more into the game, Baka is a passenger, shouldnt start let alone come out for the 2nd half.
  12. Burnley getting back in the game, get Baka off.
  13. Gets away with a nice burst of pace and f**ks it.
  14. Kante is playing on his own anyway. Baka looks like a fan who's been given a run out.
