    If Conte definitely won't be here next season why hasn't he been shown the door yet? It is not as though the payoff will be any cheaper if we wait until later in the summer.

    Not a huge difference between the North of France, and the South of England, but overall France is a bit warmer I would think.

    Seri had made it pretty clear that he did not want to play in a cold climate. He has some medical issue in colder weather. As good as he might be we don't need somebody who can only play for half the season.

    I was not a huge fan. But one of the problems we have right now is that he was never replaced.

    Uncle Guus is a pundit for the World Cup coverage on Fox in the US. So clearly he is going to be busy until after the World Cup ;) I assume Conte would be due back to start planning for pre-season in early July?

    We could probably do the same with Conte and force any new club to pay us compensation, if he is hired in the next year. I doubt we will though. We always seem to take the expensive option.

    In that case we would have to pay his 7m release clause before he can become our manager. I suppose we could keep Antonio under contract the same way that Napoli did, but we would have to continue paying wages to him and his staff for another year. So I suspect he will be paid out the 9m.

    Yes. I saw that too. If so I suspect we won't announce anything until June 1st.

    Absolutely. I would fully expect him to do that if he is shown the door. I was making that point as I don't see him leaving on his own free will. The club will have to pay him out if they want a replacement.

    New Era

    I think we definitely missed an opportunity to use the youth to strengthen our squad the last year. That being said it may still happen as I doubt some of the recruits during that time (e.g. Drinkwater, Zappacosta) will be satisfied sitting on the bench for long. Perhaps the most damning observation about our transfer policy is that we probably still need a quality midfield signing, and a top striker. That despite the fact we spent a lot of money on those 2 positions last summer.

    New Era

    I will be surprised if Hazard signs a contract extension after the past season. With that in mind the club may decide to cash in on him now while they can attract a big bid. If he does leave I will be sad to see him go, but equally we will need to make sure that the money is invested in quality players to improve the first team. We spent a lot of money reinforcing the squad the last year or 2, without improving our starting 11. There is a solid argument to be made that we could have had at least the same quality in our squad by simply promoting the right players from the youth/U23 teams. Unfortunately while our first team largely stayed the same in terms of quality (or probably regressed being that Morata has struggled compared to Costa), others have significantly improved and that is partially why we have sunk out of the top 4. If we want to compete for the league again I think a couple of quality first team signings are needed rather than several average ones.
  12. I'm pretty sure I heard Trump blaming it on Hillary Clinton. Although I think he got confused when he heard we played like a total shower against Newcastle ;)

    At this point I can't see Conte leaving us for another club. There don't seem to be that many obvious openings for him elsewhere. So no matter what happens at the weekend I assume will have to back him or sack him.

    2018 TRANSFER WINDOW OPEN!

    Sounds like a perfect fit based on our current transfer policy ;)

    2018 TRANSFER WINDOW OPEN!

    That is not entirely the case. We are being heavily linked with Seri from Nice.
