Maybe Conte wouldn't impose 3-5-2 on a squad that doesn't have the players to suit it.

Or on a squad that only has Cahill and Ivanovic to play in the three in August

Hopefully, and as soon as Conte is confirmed, we'll offer JT another year? 

Historically, Italian coaches have encouraged older players and looked only at their talents.

Before you claim his system worked with Juve, he had by far the best squad in Serie A with Pogba, Vidal, Pirlo, Marchisio and Tevez while the other top Italian teams couldn't stop s**tting the bed season after season. 

 


Pogba was a young player with great potential when he left United for Juve in 2012... he wasn't the so-called "world beater" some now consider him to be. The man that made Pogba who he is today was Conte. Vidal was considered a good midfielder, but Conte turned him into the player he is now. Tevez was good, but Conte improved him too!

You make it seem as if Conte had all these ready-made riches at his disposal when the reality is that he improved these players.

You have also fallen into the hole of believing that Conte rigidly sticks to 3-5-2  This is not so. Conte prefers whatever formation suits the players at his disposal, allied with what might be best required to beat the opposition. At Bari he played a very attacking 4-4-2 which was almost a 4-2-4. At Juve he played 3-5-2, 4-4-2 in a diamond, 4-3-3 and 4-3-1-2

So, unlike Mourinho Mk II who pretty much stuck to 4-2-3-1 irrespective of who was available and how they might be better employed, Conte is far more flexible.

Great to see that your anti Jose cultism is alive and kicking. What a hypocrite you are.

can't wait to,see how you react to the media coverage of the match fixer next season!

What goes around comes around. The players that were oh-so happy commemorating Mourinho getting fired won't get off easy, and in about 5 months time will have to deal with when Mourinho 2.0 comes to town.

Better enjoy the sweet nice breezy grandpa Hiddink while they can, because the Italiano devil is coming.

We know who the softies are in this squad, but I'm most intrigued about seeing Mikel handling this whole thing. He can't stop saying how Guus restored the feel good factor at the Bridge.

Conte will murder him.  

 

Not sure if you're being sarcastic and apologies if you are but to describe Guus in that way is not only incredibly disrespectful it's also not true. Yes he creates an environment where the players feel comfortable to do their best but he's no softie. You don't achieve what he's achieved by being soft. He's a wonderful manager in my view and if he were younger I'd definitely want him to stay.

 

Poch was my choice but I'm equally happy with Conte.

Would be nice to see Roman loosen the purse strings a bit next season instead of just our current player-out, player-in policy

Don't think he has much of a choice if he wants to continue seeing the club compete at the top. If we don't spend, we'll fall further away from the top half, guaranteed. We've already got some significant ground to make as it is.

indeed we need imo a squad of 23 players that you dont have that much/any of a drop off in quality when you interchange, 2 for every out field position and 3 keepers, and thats assuming you dont have known injury prone players making up those numbers.
