Lots of comments about how badly Chelsea have treated Conte. From the start of last season he was quietly manufacturing his own dismissal. He obviously wants to go back to Italy, even stated he would return there and that he doubted he would be at Chelsea very long. I just can't understand Napoli. You replaced your contracted manager but won't just let him leave?
107 Display Name. So you finish fifth and we finish 6th. Is that the level of Arsenals ambition. You can settle for 5th but as always we have higher prizes to reach for. Top 2 this season. Not much transfer activity as it's not necessary really. There will be 1 or 2 in the coming days. I think we need a striker and a creative midfielder for when Fabregas fades.
If they are eventually going to sack Conte and appoint Sarri, why allow him to take the pre-season training? Why not just sack him early and put an interim manager in charge pending the appointment of Sarri?
That is odd!Sarri is as far from Chelsea's image and style as it can be. Literally, as comfortable as a fish out of the water.
A lot of hate on here for Chelsea - understandable as they are the most successful English team of the past 15 years. People who make strong predictions now are usually eating their words by Christmas.
Love Contes style, wait it out and walk away with 9 mill.Chelski are in trouble, RA has tired of his play thing, no longer a citizen, new stadium cancelled, signing the likes of Giroud and Barkley..........Oh dear.....
7. Posted by eddaball on 10 hours ago"If Sarri doesnt take the job I hope Conte walks anyway and leaves that club in the lurch. No less than they deserve after this.....Despicable way to treat a Manager"Yeah like he will, and lose out on a few million £££"s pay off?
Arsenal.Replaced manager respectfully after sticking with him far too long, identified weaknesses, bought classy players early in summer, looking good. Chelsea.Replacing manager as he works, no idea what they’re buying, usually not too class players, no idea when they’re doing their business.Expect these two teams to swap places this season.
Don't care who is at the helm. It's all about the players; we won the CL with RDM! Need to keep all our stars; 4 of them played yesterday's WC SF.A few additions, proven CM, RB and a CF.
Is this story being update on "Fake Britain" tonight on the BBC ?
A team with no identity.I hope the new manager is fluent in 15 different languages.
102. TheresaI think the CFC board were upset that he lost key players like Costa and Luiz. CFC players are reportedly not happy with Conte e.g. Willian. I don't if true but CFC were terrible at times last season. Did not look like a happy campWhether keep Conte or sack him, should have all been sorted out many months ago.
It makes no sense to sack a professional manager that wins 2 trophies in 2 seasons and nearly a third, for a manager who hasn't won a thing. The board are not footballing people. A club in decline.
I don't understand what CFC are up to. They are prepared to trump City's offer to the player and club, and at the same time they refused to pay off Conte and in so doing lost out on the Champions League and tens of millions of revenue and at the same time they waste precious time by delaying the apppointment of Sarri, missing the release clause cut off etc.Power vacuum
