There are few soccer clubs in the world that attract as much interest in the modern game as Chelsea. Whether it is the latest observations from former coach Jose Mourinho, his successor Antonio Conte, big-money transfer targets, the style of play or results in Europe, everybody thinks they know what's happening--or at least has an opinion on it. The arrival of Russian billionaire tycoon Roman Abramovich as owner turned a glamorous club with a long history of under-achievement into an international powerhouse. After one championship in 99 years, the Blues have, in a dozen years, won four Premier League titles, plus the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europa League, four FA Cups and three Football League Cups. The club always was a magnet for well-known names--vaudeville legend George Robey played for the Pensioners in the club's earliest days--and, in the modern era, Stamford Bridge has become home to a dazzling array of world stars. From Ron "Chopper" Harris and Ken Bates through Ruud Gullit, Roberto Di Matteo and Glenn Hoddle to Mourinho, Costa, John Terry, Diego Costa, David Luiz, and Thibaut Courtois, there is no lack of characters to draw on for quotes.

Arrivederci Antonio is the second and final instalment of 2017s best-seller The Italian Job - A Chelsea thriller starring Antonio Conte (part one). During the process of guiding the Blues to the Premier League title in his first season as manager at Stamford Bridge, Conte had become a true man of the people revered by supporters who appreciated his tactical nous and applauded his passion for the game of football and determination to win. Basking in the glow of that title triumph, expectations among the fans were running high in the summer months. Champions League football was back on the agenda and a raft of major signings were being rumoured... star players who would enable Conte to take Chelsea to the next level. Something wasn't quite right though. The Italian was unhappy and he predicted that 2017/2018 would be the most difficult season of his career... he wasn't wrong! Arrivederci Antonio chronicles Conte's gut-wrenching and drawn out demise at the Bridge from a supporter's perspective. Alleged boardroom wrangling's, missed transfer targets, fall outs with the boys from Brazil, fall outs with Jose Mourinho, false 9 experiments, suffering without the ball, suffering with the ball, the search for the 'perfect game', embarrassing defeats... and one final two-fingers-up-at-the-world-style grandstand victory at Wembley make for the type of gloriously unpredictable rollercoaster ride that only Chelsea ever embark on. Set against a backdrop of spectacular #ConteIn #ConteOut #ConteIn #ConteOut supporter spats on social media, Arrivederci Antonio is a unique and entertaining insight into the triumphs, disasters and conclusion of Antonio Conte's mind-bending reign as Chelsea manager.
