  1. Recall mentioning sometime back that Conte was the best defensive ( defence organization) coach in Europe and some folks thought otherwise and said it was you know who. Best defence in all the major leagues in Europe!. Merry Xmas and a happy new year in advance to every shedender. Forza Chelsea, Forza Conte.
  2. https://www.theguardian.com/football/2016/nov/18/eden-hazard-antonio-conte-chelsea Very good article. Headline's a click bait though.
  3. Still the old arguments about him downing tool and not able to forgive him. Last season is gone and Im sure many really don't care why he wasn't up to it last year ( maybe his dog died or something, who cares?). He's a class player and it's a privilege to watch him play in that lovely blue color. Must be a cold hearted bast*rd to watch Eden right now and not have 'bro' love for him.
  4. Conte has reiterated that Chelsea are still willing to spend the big money but that the issue is rival clubs' reluctancy to do business. "We didn't refuse to spend the money for the right targets," Conte insisted. "The situation is that the target is not available to buy and to spend the money on. "Then I also told [them] that I'd prefer to spend a lot of money on the right great player, not on a medium player."
  5. he hasnt "sussed" him. Still early days as Conte rightly pointed out.
  6. 25 million for Mandzukic's experience and ability to attack a cross into the box. Does Traore have these abilities yet?
  7. A shame he has to be dropped in order to accommodate a player like Matic ( maybe we should just accept he's a lost cause) or Oscar who can put in a shift but offer absolutely nothing upfront. And for once I'm worried because Conte sounded frustrated when saying they needed numbers in defence, clearly stating he's only an injury away from crisis at the back. If after the transfer window we still inevitably have to start Iva,Cahill and Terry, I fear Cesc will leave come the winter window as the manager has no choice than to keep protecting the back four.
  8. http://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/football/transfer-news/chelseas-cesc-fabregas-offered-european-8639367 Rumors won't go away.
  9. Tuttosport claim that while Juve are only willing to spend 30 million euros on Fabregas, Chelsea would only let the player go for 45 million. Moreover, it’s claimed Cesc is demanding 7 million euros per year in wages. The Italian daily believe that Juve plan to try to negotiate for Fabregas this week, as well as probing the Blues again to see if Nemanja Matic is available, while PSG’s Blaise Matuidi is another player on the Bianconeri’s radar.
  10. Fully agree with Cesc's rumor but I think there's something to Pedro's as I don't see him featuring much in Conte's plan. Just my thought though.
  11. According to Spanish website Deporte Valenciano, Valencia are keen on signing the former Barcelona star, but are unwilling to meet Chelsea’s asking price of €20m.
  12. "Chelsea have reportedly submitted a €45m bid for Sporting midfielder João Mário. According to Jornal De Notícias, the agent Kia Joorabchian is the one who delivered the bid, along with another offer from Inter Milan of €45m + €5m in bonuses. Despite Chelsea’s bid being lower, the newspaper says that Sporting would prefer to accept it, since it would mean a bigger amount to be paid up front. The article doesn’t explain if Inter want to pay the €45m in instalments, but you’d have to assume so going by the Chelsea preference. The player prefers a move to the Premier League, just like has been reported many times before. But Jornal de Notícias says he’s totally focused on Sporting right now and will only worry about the bids after the clubs reach an agreement. This morning, there were also claims in Portugal saying that Liverpool had offered money plus Mario Balotelli in exchange for the midfielder, but the Italian striker isn’t in Sporting’s plans. That came after claims from the player’s own father that Liverpool had submitted a €40m offer earlier this summer".-Sport Witness
  13. Wouldn't be bothered to be honest, seems the out of practice training methods and tactics are successful these days. Recall watching a Leicester game last season and the commentator saying Ranieri was having success with his 442 formation ( while extinct in England) because CBs these days were trained to mark a one-striker system.
