    The Antonio Conte Thread

    Contes reaction to the game was honest, I like him. "I did not like what happened tonight," said Conte. "I must be honest and tell you that after three-and-a-half weeks, I am starting to understand the situation. "I am happy to stay here but at the same time I must be honest and tell you we need to work a lot to improve the quality of the squad. We are Tottenham and in this moment there is an important gap [to the top teams in England]. "If someone thinks that a new coach arrives and Conte won in the past and then I am a magician... But the only magic I can do is to work. To bring work and work to improve, to bring my methods, my ideas of football. But we have to understand that we need time. "It is not simple because, in this moment for sure, the level of Tottenham is not so high. "The situation now is starting to be very clear in my mind. I like to win and I play to win in every competition. This must be the same for my players. "This road could be one metre or 100m. I am not scared, I am ready to go and do this path. But at the same time I want to be very honest - we have to work a lot and improve in many, many aspects. "The club is outstanding outside - to create a stadium - but now we start from behind. I have found players that want to work and have great commitment, but sometimes it is not enough. "We need time, but we have to do better in everything, everything, everything." Definitely the biggest challenge he’s had for a while, turning a club around who have basically won FA for decades (odd cup granted) but still think they’re a big club with a chairman and many fans that are deluding themselves a little (myself included). Conte isn’t just playing the game here, it’s an honest assessment. Squad needs a complete overhaul and big turnover in players and transfer fees. I’m not sure 18 months is long enough. My hope is he is allowed free reign in next two windows to do what he wants. We don’t have time for levy to fuck about trying to extract the last penny on transfers, some players we need to cut our losses on and simply get what we can for them. January and next summer transfer windows are massive for spurs, conte and levy.
  2. Unless they spend and spend a lot conte won’t hang around. He realises the squad is full of poor players, and the ones that were good, it’s clear their morale is so low, form so bad, that it’s not a given they’ll get back to poch era levels. If I was one of the few decent players left in that squad I’d be looking to leave Tottenham I think. On the pitch/squad is a mess at the moment. Really hope they back conte and allow him to ship out all the deadwood. Not sure how much that will raise, their values are dropping by the minute. levy has created this mess, he needs to throw all his resources at sorting it out now. I’m trying not to be too negative about levy, ENIC and joe Lewis and all their mafia but I’m finding it hard not to wish for change and new owners.
  3. This has to work out for levy. I’m expecting him to back conte like he’s never backed a manager before. He simply has to bend over backwards to give him (and dof) all the money/support he can. I’m sure he realises this. as has been mentioned before, great off the pitch, world class training facilities and stadium. I appreciate he’s playing the long game but he has made several awful decisions. He absolutely should not get a free pass for that, he should be scrutinised for his running of the club. The ownership structure at spurs is a problem, it will take a crazy ott offer to even make levy and enic shareholders consider selling. Sadly it won’t happen I fear, even if this latest levy decision goes south. Club needs an image change too, have to get away from this ‘yids’ thing. It’s making the anti Semitic rhetoric worse. We’ve no more Jewish fans than arsenal, I’ve lost count the amount of times I’ve had rival fans spout crap at me and I’m not even Jewish, in fact I don’t know any spurs fans that are. When I go to games I refuse to chant anything relating to the word. david baddiel (Jewish Chelsea fan) David dein etc tried to tackle the spurs fans use of the term yids. I agree with them, whilst fully understanding why it was started (all that crap about owning it, taking the term away from rival fans etc) it’s now causing more trouble than actually helping. Doesn’t excuse football fans behaving the way they often do but you can’t reason with morons. good job motor racing is my favourite sport (or whatever you want to classify it as) gives me respite from all the negative spurs stories.

    The Antonio Conte Thread

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/59183033 Conte has now realised how much of challenge this is. They are going to have to back conte 100% to have any hope of him staying beyond that 18months. Obviously he’s managing expectations and sending a signal to levy, to the players and fans. Get your chequebook out Daniel!

    The Antonio Conte Thread

    Yep conte has a free pass for couple of months at least and tbh probably the season, this is a really hard job. Morale is low, players aren’t up to it in several key areas of the pitch, not many natural leaders, a demanding fanbase, chairman who wants and believes Tottenham should be at the top table without necessarily backing the managers enough to make that realistic. big problem for me is I don’t see any natural leaders in the defence, there’s no strong character to organise them at the back.without that it’s very difficult, hopefully he can find that character in one or two of them and bring it out. I really hope he can work some magic quickly, morale and confidence can go a long way but spurs need a busy January transfer window imo. He’ll most likely go for players that know his systems and method of working. I really hope he can make enough progress in these 18months to want to stay on and extend so levy REALLY needs to back him 100%, give him all the control and money that he possibly can and keep him happy.

    ECL Cup SPURS Vs Vitesse Thurs Nov 4th 20.00 KO

    Yep they seem to get away with it. I grew up amongst a lot of West Ham fans and they are literally brought up to hate spurs fans and because some spurs fans refer to themselves as Y word and chant y army (don’t agree with that by the way, spurs fans should stop that) they seem to think it’s open season. Haven’t watched the video but can imagine what they were singing to the poor guy. west ham have more than their fair share of scumbag fans. All clubs do for sure but they seem to have more than most. Glad I’ve moved away from them now! This is the problem with football fandom, it brings the worst out in people (generally, there are exceptions) and definitely lowers the IQ. Groups of men, usually pissed, not that bright and they behave in a tribal nature. It has actually turned me off football in recent years, I certainly wouldn’t encourage my children to support a club or follow football as a fan! West Ham have issued a statement, hopefully they will be banned from their stadium and more importantly the police will investigate. If their employees see them they should also take action. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/59169405

    Thought conte’s interview was good, he’s right, winning and suffering may do them good. I worry there is an awful lot of dross in that squad, he’ll need a higher turnover of players than he expected I think.

    Well that was fun wasn’t it. got the win I suppose. Awful at the back! Hugo man of the match.

    Well if conte had any false hope about the task ahead I think he’s lost it now. It’s huge challenge he’s got on! I’d like to see that second yellow again. Was it deserved, I only caught 1 replay of it. Fans are trying to help the team at least.

    ECL Cup SPURS Vs Vitesse Thurs Nov 4th 20.00 KO

    They look like a team that has only been training the formation for a day or so which is what they are. A lot of ball watching at times, I really miss jan and Toby at the back! Definitely going to be 1 or 2 new centre backs coming in January. vitesse are pressing hard, hopefully they’ll tire! Very uncomfortable to watch!

    This has all turned a bit spursy very quickly. Terrible decision from Moura for second. shit defending from dier for the first. let’s see what they’re made off, vitesse can sense we’re incredibly weak at the back.

    Yep, he can’t be expected to polish all the turds. Him and his mate need to spend wisely, I’m not sure how far 100-150m will go but hopefully they can work some magic. Depends if levy can leave the transfer dealing brinkmanship alone!
