We have all seen Juventus and Italy's three centre backs in recent times, in fact a formation that has served them so well. It's the brainchild of Antonio Conte the man installed as the hot favourite to take over at Chelsea!

According to the press, there were positive talks between his representatives and Chelsea yesterday and the Italian expects a deal to be announced within the next ten days with him being offered a reported £4.5m per season for three years.

So if a deal is agreed and Conte takes over at Chelsea, how do you think our players would adapt to a drastic change to the way we play? Surely, the manager would look at the players he has available and decides the best formation/style of play from there? Or, will he look to bring in players that he knows are suited to what he wants to then get rid of those he doesn't believe will?

There is little doubt about his credentials as a player for Juventus and as their manager. Having taken over the reigns in Turin as Juventus had suffered with the whole match-fixing scandal that ravaged Italian football, Conte led his team to the Serie A title unbeaten. He won Serie A for the next two seasons in addition to the Coppa Italia and Supercoppa Italiana two seasons running. As a result he was named Coach of the Year three years on the trot.


He has the experience and he has the credentials but I keep on saying it, the Premier League is different to any other European League. It's much harder to win our league based on the strength of everyone in it. The financial reward on offer to each club from next season onwards is only going to bolster the levels of competition and as a result will make it even harder.

Then there is the 3-5-2 formation with the reason that Conte likes to adopt this approach being that he likes three midfielders to be able to dictate the tempo and pace of the game. Why not a 4-3-3 formation that proved to be so successful?

I have made the necessary arguments of late in firstly keeping Guus Hiddink on as manager, offering it to John Terry or the fact that I believe that Diego Simeone has still a chance to take over.

It's one thing to do it with Juventus in Serie A, it's another to do it at Chelsea, under pressure to deliver Champions League football as a minimum next season with the strength of the sides in and around the top four becoming even stronger next year.

I am not sure about Conte. What do you think?
