Conte to stay as Chelsea boss despite loss to Watford

08 February 2018

With consecutive defeats against Bournemouth and Watford and failure to defend their Premier League title, it would now appear that many of those fans believe he should be sacked.

Who better to add some fire and steel to the Stamford Bridge mentality than Diego Simeone, who whilst now excelling at Atletico Madrid, is surely flashing brightly on Abramovich's radar and, we feel, that the Argentinian would love a crack at the Premier League.

Chelsea are planning to stick to under-fire manager Antonio Conte, according to reports.

ESPN adds that "Conte has given his Chelsea players three days off to rest, with the team not in action again until West Bromwich Albion visit Stamford Bridge next Monday".

Here's what the critics are saying about "Black Panther"
There's a solid story in " Black Panther " (written by Coogler and Joe Robert Cole), which might get tiresome for some audiences. Snipes recently revealed that Blade came about after he had tried and failed to get Black Panther on to the screen .

Losing to Watford has left Chelsea fourth after 26 matches - one point behind Liverpool and one point ahead of Tottenham Hotspur.

Although regarded by some as something of a figure of fun, Avram Grant won 68.8 per cent of his Premier League matches in charge of Chelsea - the Israeli coach a John Terry slip away from claiming the UEFA Champions League, too. "No Diego Costa, no Nemanja Matic - it's been a massive blow to Conte". At present there are 37 Chelsea players out on loan with different clubs, including Michy Batshuayi who was bought for £32 million.

"We started the second half with a good spirit, trying to get the goal, and when we did it I thought the team were capable of getting the three points".

Player recruitment and the autonomy - or otherwise - of the manager have always been core issues and until they are settled it is unlikely Chelsea will ever truly reach the kind of hegemony once enjoyed by United and now threatened by City.

SpaceX's Falcon Heavy rocket, the world's most powerful, soars into orbit
A space-suited mannequin was strapped in the driver's seat, and the radio set to play a David Bowie soundtrack on a loop. That honor belongs to NASA's Saturn V rocket, which was used for the Apollo moon landings and was retired in the 1970s.

That year, we saw Mourinho having problems with his doctor at the first game of the season, a clear sign of internal problems within the club. The Premier League says it's been looking at the "challenges of the increasingly congested English football calendar, and ways in which we can work together to ease fixture congestion while also giving players a mid-season break".

Drunk on success rather than West Brom's champagne, the Italian is understood to have demanded greater control over transfer policy as a reward for winning the title, a request that went down badly with the club's power brokers, the director Marina Granovskaia and the then sporting director Michael Emenalo.

The Spanish outlet also report that Chelsea will have to pay Conte €30m (£26.7m) in compensation if they sack him before the end of the season.

US House panel votes to release Democrats' rebuttal memo
Of course last week a Republican memo alleging Federal Bureau of Investigation surveillance abuses dominated news headlines. The committee unanimously voted to release the Democrats' rebuttal, but expect heavy scrutiny of it from some Republicans.
