Not a bad article, but I think "not actually defending" is hyperbole. Yes, he is the free man and doesn't have a set man to mark, but he's still covering and intercepting, which clearly is defending.
I wouldn't say that at all. God knows if the latter two will even be here next summer, forget the five years.6.After Cech,Terry,Cole,Lampard,Drogba you have the rise of new chavs to take the mantle in Courtois,Azpilicueta,Matic,Hazard and Costa who will be there for the next 5 years and are special enough that any team would want them if they could get them to play their best for them.

Yeah, it's clearly a clickbait title. But I found it quite interesting and in-depth on how he (Conte) got his Bonucci anyway.Not a bad article, but I think "not actually defending" is hyperbole.

The self roast is incredible with this one.Chelsea are looking totally beastly:
1.They already have been champions and know how to do it.
Giaccherini was beastly in the Euro, that goal from Bonucci's pass was what put him in the spotlight but he clearly was one of the best regardless. Moses is becoming a steam train as well, he just doesn't get tired.Conte likes to recycle wingers/midfielders into wing-backs because of what he demands from them - non-stop running both ways. Giaccherini anyone? :evilsweey2:
Ivanovic and Azpi cannot play wing back. Neither are good enough with the ball at their feet to be wing backs. Ivanvoic is pretty good at arriving late to whip in a cross, but as a wing back he'd have to carry the ball more than he would as a full back. I think possibly Willian could do a job there. I think Aina is more full back than wing back also.
We may not need a centre back in the summer. Ivanovic and Terry most likely will go. But Christensen returns and he has played in a 3 at Monchengladbach. So Azpi, Luiz, Cahill, Zouma and Christensen. A youngster can cover the reserve 6th spot in training/cup games.
I'd say two new wing backs are needed, possibly two new central midfielders and one attacking midfielder.
Out list should be pretty big next summer: Ivanovic, Terry, Mikel, Fabregas, Oscar and a lot of loan guys.
