Interviewed before or after a game Antonio Conte seems to be fully in control of his faculties.

However, as soon as the ball hits the back-of-the-net all that pent-up passion comes to the surface, something akin to Mount Etna erupting.

Yesterday against Stoke City, at the Bet365 Stadium was the perfect example.

The minute Gary Cahill smashed the ball into the net Conte was like a whirling dervish swinging manically from the roof of the dug-out, in scenes which have surely never been seen before.

But it is his behaviour of that nature that endears the Italian to us all, it shows, like us, he cares.

After the game, when interviewed by the press and with that passion back under control, Conte had this to say about the game, commenting,

‘I am pleased because to play Stoke at this point of the season, you have to be prepared mentally and physically. For this reason, we won today. It was a tough game, we tried to play football and deserved to win. We faced a really good team.

‘I am pleased for Gary Cahill because we conceded a penalty after a little push from him. To score the winning goal is great for him and our team.

‘Diego Costa played very well and showed great discipline. It is not easy to start the game with a yellow card and then to stay calm. Diego is showing me a great will to think and fight for the team. I want to continue this way.

‘We need to take 21 points for the title win. There are 10 games to go, today was a great win, a good signal but it is important to continue with the same commitment and work rate as a team.”

And when pressed on whether the title is now Chelsea`s to lose, he responded,

‘To have a 10 points gap, 13 at the moment, but I like to think our opponents will win tomorrow. We have to look at ourselves. We are happy. We must be ready to fight, today we were ready.’

The fight goes on until the title is ours you suspect, but what a wonderful guy to have in control of our club.

  • the league is as good as ours, we can still drop 12 of the available 30 points and end up as champions (realistically)…

  • Breaking news!
    Manure have finally, after several attempts, moved up to 5th after going unbeaten in 18 matches. What a run and what an achievement. They will soon catch Chelsea,the league leaders, and probably win the title come May and Mourinho will be happy for having got one over us.
    Ah! ah!!

  • Man City & Liverpool share the spoils in an enthralling match ….. so Spurs are 10 pts behind as our closest challengers

  • Yeah @ZeeNut City & Liverpool dropped points leaving Tottenham 2nd with 10points. City got big games to play than Spurs whose fixture list are mostly bottom half of the table teams. So are they the team to push us to the end? May be when i see their North London derby, that’s if they don’t drop points till then. KTBFFH!!!

  • To bad we have another international break, and we have to wait until April to resume. April is a tough month with Spuds and both Manc’s, however i expect us to prevail . Mourinho would not shake the hand of the Boro caretaker manager today and celebrated in front of the Boro fan’s , everything he accused Conte of . Even though i will always be grateful for the titles he won for us, i do not miss the circus he brings with him, he seems to be getting more nasty as he ages . By contrast Pep wins manager of the month and compliments Conte .
