Antonio Conte

Chelsea fans began to turn on Antonio Conte during our stalemate with Leicester City at Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon.

The Blues were unable to break through ten-man Leicester in front of the home crowd. Once Eden Hazard and Cesc Fabregas were (bizarrely) withdrawn on the hour mark by Antonio Conte, it was clear to see that it was going to be another one of ‘those days’.

That’s three 0-0 draws in a week now for the Premier League champions, who have a Champions League tie with Barcelona to look forward too in a couple of weeks. If Conte is unable to motivate his players then we have very little chance of progressing in the competition.

It is has been evident for a while now that Antonio Conte is not entirely content with the squad that he has at his disposal, but that’s no excuse for our recent shortfalls. Conte took a team that finished tenth and turned them into title-winners. This is not the Conte that we all know and adore – it’s almost as though he’s thrown in the towel.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte won the Premier League title during his debut campaign at Stamford Bridge.

Manchester City are running away with the title, there is very little we can do about that, but there is still the opportunity to make this season a great one. We are in all three cup competitions, and if we don’t win the title, we at least ought to be runners up.

Conte needs to take responsibility for our stagnation and turn our fortunes around. Many of the Chelsea faithful, however, are losing faith in the Italian. Here’s how Twitter turned on Conte after our draw with Leicester:

Conte is so blind to see that it is his bakayoko who has turned to be BADYOKO doing completely nothing in that midfield. Let him try drink water or Barkley.

We need a spirited Ross Barkley … at least he knows what the 3 sticks at the end are for !!! … Baka-Joko cannot even remember the colour of shirt he should be passing to !!

With the exception of Hazard and Tibot everyone else is from useless to utterly useless.

Is he (Conte) the ball or the players who refused to hit the ball well? If you like, bring Pep here, if Chelsea refuse to get the football players who can kick this ball around and then kick it in, you keep crying. Chelsea players are just shaking, no confidence,… Read more »
