I remember when former boss, Jose Mourinho was appointed as Chelsea manager back in 2004, he announced himself as the ‘Special one’, and he did special things in his two spells as Chelsea manager. His history with Chelsea seems to be over, but it doesn’t mean we wouldn’t stop creating history as a club.

Antonio Conte right now seems to be creating history with Chelsea, and from nothingness there is a special feeling at Stamford Bridge right now, and the fans can acknowledge that there’s something special going on at the club.

About a month ago, it was all a story of gloom and doom for Chelsea, especially after the embarrassing defeat to Arsenal, and many Chelsea fans felt that we were going back to the pains and tears we felt last season. But in the time when we felt downcast, Antonio Conte revealed his specialness.

A squad that looked terrible, out of shape, lacked confidence and was easily defeated became winners and more confident just after a tactical switch from Conte.

Without a massive outlay on signings, without waiting for the January transfer window and with just a tactical switch, Chelsea rose from a low ebb to become a force in the league. It doesn’t get special than that. Even though he might not want to accept the title, Conte has already shown that he’s the new special one, and a 4-0 victory against the former special one only shows how special he really is.
