Chelsea fans have proven unforgiving this season when results go bad and Antonio Conte had been right at the center of receiving the backlash that follows them. After Sunday’s final day loss to Newcastle United that cemented Chelsea’s position in the league table, fans poured their frustrations on the Italian again.
The Blues will now have to contend with no Champions League football for another year after suffering a humiliating 3-0 defeat at the St James’ Park. Their performance was nothing to write home about and traveling fans were left shocked at how their side failed to win in a game that could have seen them qualify for top four had Liverpool lost against Brighton.
Many Chelsea fans on social media pointed at the former Juventus manager for the failings of Chelsea this season with some even asking he is sacked before the FA Cup final against Manchester United next weekend.
Just a reminder that Conte made 6 changes vs Huddersfield only to get smoked 3-0 by Newcastle the following game.

If you’re Chelsea fan & you still want Conte to stay, you’re not really a Chelsea fan.

If you look at the shape of the formation Conte has been using recently, it looks like he’s saying fuck you to the board pic.twitter.com/J1a7Oh1udN

The thought is crossing my mind that if Abramovich is remotely interested in Chelsea winning the FA Cup he needs to sack Conte tonight.

Antonio Conte is the biggest reason Chelsea will not be playing Champions League football next season. Spin it whatever way you want, Chelsea's terrible season comes down to horrendous management from Conte.

Final straw. Conte must go!!!! @ChelseaFC. How can you lose 3-0 to Newcastle? Atrocious.

Abramovich must sack Conte today. If he wants that FA Cup, it has to be today. Absolutely dire.

The only way we can win the FACup this season is to SACK CONTE before next weekend.
Retweet if you agree as a Chelsea fan.

I beg of you @ChelseaFC sack Conte before the FA cup finals and let Jody Morris take over temporarily.
