    Antonio Conte - Now Officially Manager

    Well the main crux of what you said is Roman won't give time to managers if they dont win anything, well so far we only have one season in the Roman era where we won nothing yet despite that made positive progress which was Mou's first season back, and he was in absolutely no danger of losing his job. So the all be it limited evidence suggests that they will get atleast a second season aslong as they are keeping us on the right track and showing signs of progress.

    How the hell would you know that? Scolari and AVB were not only failing to get results they were failing to show ANY signs that things were going to change for the better anytime soon. Infact, there's only been one season in the whole Roman era were we won nothing but at the same time shown positive signs of progression which was Jose's first season back, and guess what? he got a second.

    There's only been once in the Roman era we have made progress despite winning nothing which was Jose's first season back and he got the time he needed. I reckon if say Sarri came in, had us top 4 with a clear blueprint i genuinely believe he will get the time he needs.

    There's having a bad period then there's winning 3 games in 3 month's. Conte did an incredible job last season, but last season has gone. He's made it very clear he's going to reign it in unless he get's a blank cheque, so what's the point of keeping him? We may not have the best squad in the world, but we have a core of world class players and a bunch of decent players that a lot of managers would love to train. Do i think the board could do better? Yes, but anything they have or haven't done can't account for the series of ameatuer mistakes Conte is making. As for the type of manager we should look for, someone with a clear plan, good at getting the best out of players, believes in working on the training ground and is willing to use our youth players. We are trying to run a sustainable buisness so appointing managers who can't work well (for a sustained period) without a blank cheque or in Conte's case refuses to is pointless.

    I see you ignored the point about him being made to look silly by a succession of mediocre managers?

    Failing to sign Walker wasn't a Conte failure,however getting tactically outsmarted by the likes of Roy, Dyche, Moyes, Howe, Wenger (repeatedly), Puel and Javi Garcia alongside 3 wins in as many months very much is!!!!!!!!! Using Liverpool's signing of VVD is hilarious, they sold their best player to fund it. If we sold Hazard and spent half the money on a CB from Southampton you'd be the first to moan about it.

    So now ive debunked the myth he doesn't have a say you are changing the goalposts? Well hopefully the next manager actually believes in earning his money on the training ground, i don't expect them to win the league but we have a good enough squad for top 4 and certainly one good enough to win more than 3 games in 3 months (were we were at before this much needed 6 points this week). Yeah Conte may have wanted Walker, by equal measure im sure Poch would have wanted to keep him or at the very least get an adequate replacement but he isn't acting like he's in the Kindagarten over it. So if they were going after Serie A players because they were cheap, why didn't they give Jose the same profile of player? The typical board signing down the years has been young players with potential for growth and or profit, almost all the Serie A players and especially the target men are the total athesis of theTHEIR type of player.

    So you believe our sudden insistence on Serie A players and targetmen is a coincidence? Yes there's some board signings but the Serie A players and the targetmen have his prints all over them.

    If thats the case then serious questions need to be asked to Klopp of why it took two years to sort his defense out. It's been widely adknowledged the board didn't give him the best hand, but that doesn't excuse his sh*t tactics, average team selections and borderline lack of professionalism.

    So Klopp wanted to sign the likes of Ragnar Klavan? Yeah right.

    You think Liverpool and Spurs managers pick their own players? Its well documented that Liverpool run a transfer commitee and Levy controls transfers at Spurs. The "board didn't give him the best hand" excuse could have been used when we were behind the Manc clubs, but by the exact same logic Conte himself uses, being behind Liverpool and Spurs is inexcusable.

    By the same logic people use on here Klopp and Poch weren't "backed" in the summer either. Conte has done a rubbish job this season and yhe excuses are getting more comical by the hour.

    Yes he would start ahead of Mane, to suggest he's better than Hazard is laughable and your worst excuse for Conte yet. Walker is not Azpi but he along with Rose were once the key cogs in making Spurs's system work, their energy, athleticism and excellent defense/offense balance was key and allowed Poch to shift from back three and four's seamlessy. Since losing them (Rose is past it since injury) he has tweaked the system so it isn't so fullback reliant, it's called hardwork on the training ground, Conte should try it sometime.

    So you are saying we downgraded with signings but then claim Aurier and Trippier are good replacements for Walker? Whatever suits the narrative hey.

    Same was said with Jose in 15 /16. There's more than enough options out there.
