    chef reacted to Jezz in Antonio Conte - Now Officially Manager   
    It's a bittersweet moment, but I've moved on despite my initial anger in the subsequent months after he was sacked but that chapter has closed in our club's history.
     
    I didn't agree with the decision to sack him and I'm still fearful we will regret it in the long-term, but we can't go back and now we need to move forward as a club rather than looking back and harking back to Jose. He's a legend for eternity and that will never change, but both parties have moved on.
     
    Now it's time to worry about our own club and getting behind Conte to deliver us success.

    Very happy we got this through he is a cracking player and is exactly what we need for the push.
     
    We will take good care of him and return him to you a better player. 
     
    Good luck for your season lads and thankyou.

    Chelsea TV started on pay TV here over the weekend and the first thing I saw on it was 'The Best of Kalou' not Best of Zola or Drogba or Lampard or Hasselbaink but best of Kalou.
    Truth be told I still watched it haha.

    £60m will get you the vast majority of players apart from your Messi's and such so it's a significant amount of money even in today's market.

    well I am a little surprised with the tone of that response- I can't say I appreciate the condescension particularly given that a) I actually had a go- last time I put some questions to you I believe they were completely ignored and b) what you've written is not all that substantive. 
     
    I've answered what you've put across as plainly as I see it.  broadly what I'm saying is that he's been part of a big improvement in our youth set up and whilst there seem to be blind points I think he seems to be good at recruitment. so long as we have a good, strong permanent manager working with him I'm entirely comfortable with him as the technical director.  that is all. it is a different opinion to yours, not some wild defence or veneration of a person who as I have already said cannot be complacent about his position. what you seem to interpret as a kind of disingenuous hedging of bets is merely an honest appraisal. I'll avoid falling into your trap of calling opinions facts and simply say the reason I include criticisms even in a supposed defence is because I am incredibly mistrustful of absolutes. far more than you appear to be.
     
    anyway. here are my counterpoints:
     
    -your conceit is that it matters (to some degree) about his experience before becoming technical director. I don't totally disagree but given he has been in situ for some time I am making my judgements entirely on the basis of what he has done for us. ultimately at this point in time that is what I'm concerned with. I have written about how he got to the club in the past before you were a member (unless you previously had a different membership). in any case he didn't appoint himself.
     
    -you've written passionately about the mourinho sacking on a number of occasions. the way you describe us being tenth under emenalo's watch is a weird one. you seem to hold him more responsible for this season than jose. if indeed this is your opinion, it should follow that he is also more responsible for us being the current champions, and he deserves more credit than di matteo for the champions league win.
     
    -regarding leadership I don't really know where to start. we had enough to win the title last season. most captains of nations are old. in fact outside of britain most captains are typically the player with the most caps. those tend to be the older ones. so you've created a bizarre circular argument, leaving aside how difficult it is to discern exactly what leadership is in any quantifiable sense. I would also add that jose was above all responsible for shaping the squad- this is evident in his job title and in the profile of players signed and sold.
     
    -if you think jose's chances of retaining the title were torpedoed before the season began then this is a point we simply won't agree on. personally I think he's a good enough manager to have the squad he started with above leicester's. it appears you don't rate him quite as highly as you repeatedly claim.
     
    -I don't care how often you've met forde or how good he is at conferences or powerpoint. your opinion of him is totally irrelevant here -as is mine- what I'm saying is that when he was at the club no-one ever criticised him in relationship to decisions taken by the club in the way they have done and continue to so with emenalo. it is a hypocrisy. it is a concept you are definitely au fait with, so you shouldn't need it spelling out.
     
    your talk of begiristain at city again suggests you seem to think that these directors have more influence over the first team than the manager / head coach over the results in a given season. his track record at barcelona doesn't really come into the conversation of his assessment at city. one wonders what you would have said had emenalo signed mangala for £40m and bigiristain got zouma for £12m. one wonders...
