    Because he's not good enough for Chelsea.
    I'm not sure which games you are on anout but every time I've seen him p,at he's stood out like a sore thumb for all the wrong reasons.

    Conte signs new contract
    NEWSTUE 18 JUL 2017
    Antonio Conte has today signed a new two-year contract with Chelsea Football Club. 

    The deal is announced as he prepares to take the Premier League champions to China and Singapore on our pre-season tour of Asia, where we will face Arsenal, Bayern Munich and Inter Milan. 

    Conte said: 'I am very happy to have signed a new contract with Chelsea. We worked extremely hard in our first year to achieve something amazing, which I am very proud of. Now we must work even harder to stay at the top.

    I think we'll play the diamond Xmas tree formation with introverted wing fly half backs, and speculative inside leg measurement forwards.

    Thought I'd tell you that your avitar was taken by me. You've chopped out a mutual friend of mine and Ruud from the picture. I was lucky enough to be invited on the pitch after the game and went in the dressing room afterwards.

    That distant roar from the other end when Drogba nets the penalty is spine tingling.

    Really respect and enjoy seeing his attitude.
    For a £33m player to come and spend the amount of time he had on the bench, you'd presume a modern day footballer would kick up a fuss and push through a transfer. He has been the opposite. Tried to grasp every opportunity he's been given, I thought he played well in the Semi at Wembley against Spurs and his positional awareness for the goal Friday was brilliant.
    All his social media activity has been positive, and you saw with the celebrations on Friday that he's an extremely popular member of the squad. I hope he gets to start the next 2 games and get a goal or two, and hopefully that will kickstart his career with us. Will never forget that goal and whatever happens he's a Chelsea hero in my eyes!

    Well I would argue Matthew Harding and Lord Attenborough are more deserving. Without their support for the club there wouldn't have been a JT. They dedicated their lives to Chelsea through a number of dark times and gave to the club a lot more than they received. JT is a player, paid handsomely, to deliver on and off the pitch. Without being paid that much money - the highest paid in the league for a defender - he would have left. He has made no actual sacrifices for the club.
    If he dedicates the next 10+ years as an ambassador for the club then I will change my mind. But as he is going to go off to another club, potentially then move into media or managing other teams, then I would suggest we wait. 
    Imagine if in 10-15 years time he is the manager of Tottenham or United...what do we do then? Change the name back? Do you actually suggest that is 100% not going to happen? We don't know what his next career will be in football.  
     
    None of this intended to be a slur on JT, he is the GOAT for Chelsea and has been an incredible captain who is responsible for a number of trophies, he is a legend. But lets just wait and see what he does for the rest of his adult life first before making him officially marking him as an equal with MH.

    Couldn't be more dissapointed in how he's played since January. Prime Drogba for the first half of the year, Torres from 2011 with anger issues for the rest of it. I'd bench him for Spurs, Michy can't be any worse and we can try him out in a game that won't affect the League table

    So he wanted to leave, didn't get his way and instead of sulking, kept his head down and has likely fired us to another title with his goals. If anything he should get more respect for that, not less.

    Incorrect. My opinion as a fan from my Ivory armchair, despite never seeing players in a training session, is far more valuable than a coach with a longstanding career as a serial winner who sees the players every day.

    I love him, but my one issue with him is how long he takes to make subs. There was no need to have 2 DM's on for so long, Kante & Pedro should have both been replaced far earlier.

    He has improved leaps and bounds. Although he has always been a goalscorer, he mainly was a poacher, excellent finisher. This season, has improved his hold up play magnificently which has played a huge part in him making a lot more assists. Just look at his goal against City, the way he shrugged off Otamendi and finished with aplomb and then the way he set up Willian for our second goal.
    He looks a lot faster, stronger and he definitely has been working on his technique/long shots etc. Some of the goals he has scored this season has been terrific. Before this season, can you even recall him ever scoring a goal outside the box? This season IIRC, he has 3 from outside the box. West Ham, Hull and Southampton. Brilliant goals. And then his finishing on his left foot. Just look at the quality of the strikes against WBA and Stoke. You would think that was his natural foot, when in fact it is weaker foot.
    Wouldn't swap another striker for him right now. He is unplayable and a joy to watch.

    Just came to have a little look at how you guys have taken to N'golo...as expected, I see you adore the guy. 
    The best player I've seen in a Leicester shirt by a country mile, and probably ever will see. Arguably one of the best footballers I've ever seen in my life. I can't deny that I was extremely bitter when he left for you guys, but that's all dissipated now. It really is impossible not to love him.
    You'll win a sh*tload of titles and probably a Champions League while he's here, he's that good (As i'm sure you know by now). The media big him up but I still don't think they realize how exceptional he really is.
    Good luck to you in your title ambitions, look after the little man!

    The article is a load of crap...conveniently forgets Jose beat Spurs just a few months later in Lge cup final and won title after leading for record amount of weeks in may that year too...while Spurs defeat did expose weaknesses in 4-2-3-1, to suggest it was the reason for Mourinho's decline is nonsense...clearly problems began at chelsea in summer transfer window of 2015 when he didn't get players he wanted and also saw Cech sold against his wishes to the Arse...throw in his bad decision to start pre-season late and players coming back with a questionable attitude - e.g. Costa - plus his stupid row with Eva, and you have more accurate reasons for his demise at chelsea...as for what's gone wrong for him at Utd, ridiculous to say that has anything to do with one game he lost as chelsea manager...

    Do not get me wrong, I think Chelsea fans vocal support is some of the best in the Premier league and we should continue to support the team as best we can but I have a concern. I think Chelsea fans are in danger of accidentally putting distance between the players and the manager. I noticed when Jose came back the fans used to sing his name an awful lot and the singing of his name would ring out at top volume around the ground. It was often the loudest and longest chant of the day. At the time I had an email exchange with Pat Nevin in which I raised concern about the possibility that the players might feel put out that they were doing their best and the fans were siding with Jose. Pats response was that some players would identify with this. Think about it. If you were at work and your boss was taking all the credit for your good work you might not be best pleased. Yes Antonio has changed things for the better but so have the players.
    I think we are in danger of putting distance between Antonio and the players. The crowd are really enjoying the new Antonio chant, as well they should, but, before you start or join in with this chant, just give a thought for the players who are working their B****cks off for the cause. I'm not saying stop singing for Antonio but how about a lot more singing for the team and the players. Especially towards the end of games when the players might be tiring.
