Since the start of the summer, we’ve talked regularly about trying to avoid a repeat of 2015-16 season as much as possible. Antonio Conte himself got in on that act by specifically calling out the need to avoid a “Mourinho season”. And despite a few hiccups in the transfer window and an absolutely atrocious first 45 minutes to the season, we’ve so far done a pretty good job at doing just that.
But now, just like Mourinho in 2015, Antonio Conte has collected some sort of award from British GQ. It’s all over now. In two months, Conte will be talking about players betraying his work and Emenalo will once again talk about ‘the individual’ and ‘palpable discord’. Good times.

In all seriousness, congrats to Antonio, the Tailor of Stamford Bridge. May this be the first of many dubious awards he gets to win as Chelsea head coach!
In bonus Antonio Conte content, here’s the boss showing off at training today. Yep, he’s still got it! Maybe we should’ve registered him for the Champions League since the squad has an open non-homegrown spot.
Nicely done, boss! 😉 pic.twitter.com/9yy2cnQB8n

Chelsea considering January swoop for Bayern striker
Chelsea are considering a move for Bayern Munich forward Thomas Muller in January.
According to The Mirror, Chelsea are preparing to make a move for Muller in January as they keep close tabs on his progress.
The report claims that Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea all enquired this summer to see if they could sign him, but Bayern were unwilling to play ball.
Chelsea are now prepared to wait until January to see if Bayern change their stance and allow him to leave in the next transfer window.
Muller’s future at Bayern is in doubt after he struggled for the German champions last season.
The Germany international scored nine goals last season, which was the first time he’d hit under 20 goals for Bayern in a season since 2012.
He had scored 32 goals in the 2015/16 season, but failed to push on and could now be set to leave the club he has been at since he was 10.
