“I want to say thanks” – Antonio Conte shows gratitude after supporters sing his name
By Eddie Razo -

It was a good week for Tottenham Hotspur and manager Antonio Conte, picking up two wins against Brentford and Norwich City. During Sunday’s 3-0 win against The Canaries, the home crowd began singing the Italian tactician’s name. 

With goals from Lucas Moura, Davinson Sanchez, and Son Heung-min, the convincing performance put Tottenham supporters in a good mood as they sang “Antonio, Antonio, Antonio” at the stadium. 

Following the win, Conte shared his gratitude to the supporters during his press conference with the media. 

“Honestly, first of all, I want to say thanks to all the fans that sung my name,” Conte said, with the Daily Mail relaying his remarks. “In one hand, I’m very happy, very enthusiastic for this. On the other hand, I feel a lot of responsibility towards our fans. 

“I think they trust a lot in my work and to listen to my name it was good, also because I have just arrived: only one month I’ve been here, and for sure I have this responsibility to deserve this and maybe it is too early. I want to show in the future I deserve this. I think the good result helps you, but I want to deserve if the fans decide to sing my name for my work, for my involvement in this club, in this situation.”

Conte can further begin to put his imprint on the squad as the January window opens in a couple of weeks and reshape the team that fits his vision. 

Turning Tottenham into a squad that can win trophies consistently is how Conte wants to repay the supporters for the gratitude they showed towards him. 

Spurs will have another opportunity to make it two wins in one week when they face Stade Rennais in the UEFA Conference League and Brighton & Hove Albion FC.

What you all think about Arteta jumping in trying to pry Yaya even though he never gives a rats behind before he learns he was at Spurs to educate himself.

If Yaya thinks he will learn more from Action Man than he would Conte, good riddance as he would clearly need his head read.

Conte has the respect of the players in the main, and they want to improve, that looks more than possible the way things have begun with him in charge. A long way to go yes, but you can only be pleased with the current situation of PL results, the games are coming thick and fast so the test is still to be had, the January window will be crucial.

Levy has to back him in Jan and every other window. Conte is the real deal and we shall see if Levy can handle it.

imagine how much better the squad would now be if Levy hadn’t insisted on wasting money on the likes of Tangy, Doherty, Bergwjin, Rodon, Sessingnon etc…

Hindsight… pretty sure all those players were thought of as good signings on the day they were holding up the shirt.

Bergy wasn’t even wanted by Maureen and he was the manager.

Huge sell-on potential apparently. Levy knows best. The tool.

We are back in the well 4 to 8 group in the league. We are beating who you would expect us to (in the league) and a formation (philosophy if you prefer) is starting to build. Big games may hinge on Kane actually achieving something substantial in a game plus how we we can control the middle of the park. But it’s a great start by a new manager. The season is reliant on a few key signings in January even one or two could make a huge difference. And a cup win would be the catalyst for the Conte era even over 4th.

Trouble is the quality of the opposition so far and the crud that make up the second 11. Some signings in January are really needed followed by several more in the summer. Then Conte can take us to glory because make no mistake he is the real deal.

We’ll be lucky if we see a single signing in January…

Well if Paratici cant land a free/last few months of contract player or two then he needs to jog on.

Even though the B team are mostly a bunch of losers I do hope he rotates again on Thursday, maintaining this velocity in the league over christmas and beating the spammers in the league cup is way more important than the prospect of a 2 legged play off in a competition nobody gives a toss about.
