Antonio Conte has been behaving like something is wrong behind the scenes at Chelsea for much of the season and the Blues’ subsequent poor title defence has left their fans baying for his dismissal almost ever since.
Last month, their season looked like petering out; with Spurs and Liverpool seemingly opening up an unassailable lead in the race for the top four, even beating Southampton to reach the FA Cup final was in the balance.
Fast forward to now and Conte has got his mojo back; Chelsea are on the march again, in the FA Cup final – playing better than their opponents Manchester United – and within one slip-up of dining at Europe’s top table again next term.
That good run of form – and possibly a lack of available alternatives – has now caused the Blues’ fanbase to perform the biggest about turn of all.
Football fans are a fickle bunch and now Chelsea’s support want Conte to stay…
Let him finish his contract. He is a good coach. Alot of new players unable to blend in the team and inability to produce goals by the striker were the major problem of Chelsea this season.

Conte is right man for chelsea. 2 years are not enough… think rationally in 2 years we won the league, been to 2 fa cup finals. This season players were of faults not conte. Get quality players and next season we can win everything I guarantee it.
