Yeah, I agree.
 

I think Conte got a bum deal at Chelsea as well. 

Really? Have you seen some of the bums he signed for Chelsea?
 

Morata - £60m

Bakayoko - £36m

Batshuayi - £35m

Drinkwater - £34m

Zappacosta - £22m

Emerson - £18m

Barkley - £15m

 

And he was still moaning about wanting more players. He knows how to coach, but he’s impossible for any club to work with. Levy wouldn’t go within a country mile.

Conte is a better manager and would probably get more from the players in the short term but will probably fall out with Levy in 18 months.

Rodgers would improve them over a longer period and is less likely to upset the apple cart. 

Can’t see Brendan getting along with a chairman who calls the shots transfer-wise as often as Levy seems to.

These manc bastards getting praised and media fawning over them for being in final of a comp clubs are desperate to avoid being in...and they are only in because they failed miserably in the big one.

I partially agree with that.
 

I don’t know much about his time at Juventus but he did a great job with an average Italy side. 
 

Conte wasn’t given a great Chelsea side but made very effective players out of Moses, Alonso & Luiz playing 3-4-3.
 

He was given a bit of shit deal in his 2nd season when they signed crap like Drinkwater & Bakayoko, was held on until pre-season and then sacked for Sarri. 
 

He wanted investment to win Inter the league. He got it and he won it. 
 

I can completely see why having to see £80m worth of players, which could potentially be a number of starters, would piss him off.

 

Given Levy’s prudent ways might not be to Conte’s liking, but I also think he’ll find that at every club these days.

I appreciate what your saying. Morata sticks out particularly, didn’t Conte say a lot of those signings (Drinkwater particularly) weren’t his?

Haha, just seen on the BBC "Goal - Moreno" and I got giddy thinking it couldn't be old Bert Moron could it?

 

Then it dawned that I was being very silly, of course it wasn't.

No, but this one puts Gerard on the back of his shirt instead so that counts for something.

Very thoughtful again there from the Norwegian Socrates.


He’ll be waiting for Ferguson to tell him  what to do at half time.
