The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are fuming this evening.
While well over £100m has been spent to improve Antonio Conte’s first-team, the Blues in the bar can’t quite believe just how thin the Italian’s squad is right now.
With the club preparing for life back in the Champions League, our west London locals were gutted to see Conte miss out on the likes of Fernando Llorente and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
Having spent so much over the years, the Shed Enders here in the Tavern aren’t used to Roman Abramovich skimping out on new arrivals over the course of the summer, so it’s fairly new territory for them.
As you can imagine, it’s not a notion that’s gone down overly well.
We can only imagine how Antonio Conte is feeling right now…
With that in mind, here’s a closer at how Chelsea fans on Twitter vented their frustration on social media tonight.
It’s a shame the board, aka Roman, don’t have the same ambition as Conte. This will be his last season with us, whatever happens. #CFC

Board should be ashamed of getting trolled by every player. Why is Roman not firing the board? #CFC

Conte is ambitious.Back him like City with Pep & he will deliver. He'll be gone next season in case Roman doesn't sack him before that. #CFC

Lucas Perez and Janssen want to leave. Gayle might also be on sale. Draxler is on sale. Is Abramovich broke? #CFC
