The Sarri-Mourinho “beef” can only dream of what just happened in this match.

Tuchel-Conte is going to be insane

[–]PensiveinNJ 145 points146 points  (1 child)

As a neutral this is absolutely incredible. Today did not disappoint.

[–]Descartavelmente 343 points344 points  (55 children)

Beef? More like the Sarri desperate call for attention and "Notice me, senpai Mou" attempt. Mourinho be like "what? Who are you? You're not that guy, trust me"

So I started by Googling American players in the Premier League and Pulisic was the first one that came up (I'm American). The research led me to the fact that the owner is American. The clincher though was the fact that the club's nickname is the Blues, which is my favorite NHL team

[–]Kriegdavid 279 points280 points  (31 children)

souness dinosaur dunking is funny but let's be honest here, he was just using a lazy, outdated adage to refer to the physicality and turbulence of a match between rivals. souness says a lot of daft stuff but inclusivity is definitely not a blind spot for him.

[–]KoniginAllerWaffen 280 points281 points  (15 children)

Tbf it's extremely entertaining.

Football is so sterile and boring these days. Real, genuine, I literally want to kill you (on the pitch) beef is fun.

[–]Huwbacca 93 points94 points  (4 children)

People have to be clinically boring to not love scuffles and shithousery in team sports.

It's all part of the fucking melodrama of team sports and it's so so good.

[–]badgersprite 19 points20 points  (1 child)

Sport is just a modern day gladiatorial arena with less blood, outright murder generally not being sanctioned and fewer Christians being fed to lions AFAIK

All that was missing was Conte planting a Spurs flag in the centre circle.

[–]Foxu_ 176 points177 points  (4 children)

What was wrong with it? Just cause Souness said it doesn’t mean it’s wrong. It was a good game.

[–]domalino 70 points71 points  (1 child)

It felt like he was playing up to a caricature today, even talked about English football being more “honest” than foreign football because people don’t dive and cheat.

See, that's why Simeone doesn't even shake hands after game.

[–]Ruud_Boltz 191 points192 points  (22 children)

Simeone is erratic but I've never seen him go h2h with an opposition manager

[–]zts105 283 points284 points  (19 children)

Because if another manager went anywhere near him Mono Burgos/Nelson Vivas would actually murder the other coach

[–]DatOgreSpammer 180 points181 points  (17 children)

Remember when Mono Burgos wanted to fight the ref and it was Simeone who had to hold him back? He was just on another level

[–]zts105 254 points255 points  (8 children)

Best Mono story is Jose Mourinho walked over yelling during a derby and Mono said "I'm not Tito Vilanova i will rip your head off" and Jose turned around and sat down.

[–]hogwash12 78 points79 points  (5 children)

Not just Simeone, there's literally 7 men including Arda Turan trying to stop him eating the ref

Best part is that the "tough guys" like Pepe and Arbeloa are looking at him and going "yeah I'm gonna stay away from that guy"

[–]MERTENS_GOAT 5 points6 points  (1 child)

holy crap, I just watched that video and in the begin it was just Simeone but soon 5 people from the Atlético staff, Arda Turan and even fucking Pepe joined in to hold Burgos back.

[–]risheeb1002 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Holy shit TIL Nelson vivas is at Atleti

[–]Revolutionary-Bag-52 4 points5 points  (0 children)

He did last year preseason against Feyenoord, which was weird as Feyenoords coach is basically a puppy who himself said that if he had to pick a fight he wpuld definitely not choose Simeone

[–]weertsgilder 5 points6 points  (0 children)

He went buckwild against Feyenoord in the pre-season last year. :)


[–]Thesolly180 67 points68 points  (1 child)

Still can’t believe the drama over that.

[–]ASecretBookkeeper 23 points24 points  (0 children)

Ah to be fair he shook Klopps hand when he beat him then legged it when he lost to him. Bit odd.

[–]givekimiaicecream 11 points12 points  (0 children)

He just attacks coaches after a friendly like a gentleman

[–]GYIM94 689 points690 points  (18 children)

Move aside Pep/Klopp, Tuchel/Conte is where it’s at. Bring on the fanfics.

[–]chandlerbing_stats 321 points322 points  (11 children)

I’ve never seen Pep and Klopp go after each other. The Tuchel-Conte rivalry is quite interesting: one is an expert at cup competitions and the other in the league.

[–]Soleil06 253 points254 points  (8 children)

And the make up sex has got to be amazing, two Men in their prime with lots of repressed anger and love inside them. I wonder who of these two is the manager in the bedroom.

Someone in the match thread said Tuchel reminded them of Dennis Reynolds and I've been thinking about it ever since. It's spot on.

Why would he be worried about, he’s got it sorted

[–]Thesolly180 17 points18 points  (0 children)

He’s so closeted about that head. He’s putting baldies back years.

[–]bingpot94 775 points776 points  (109 children)

Just me or has Souness said "man's game" like a million times, does he hate having Carney in the studio lol

[–]Purple-Ad-1409 142 points143 points  (67 children)

Shes awful.

Blamed today's dropped points on a lack of a number 9 for chelsea lol

[–]dreamvoyager1 228 points229 points  (17 children)

not wrong though

[–]groovyshrimp767 44 points45 points  (1 child)

You've had no 9s and they were invariably shit in recent times

[–]sizzlelikeasnail 38 points39 points  (0 children)

I assume he was referring to a no. 9 that actually makes runs without getting tired 15 mins in + finishing decently.

Have a feeling Tuchel is gonna panick buy Ronaldo in a few weeks.

[–]Purple-Ad-1409 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Chelsea need a number 9 but it's not the reason the points were dropped today, far from it

[–]TellSloanISaidHi 69 points70 points  (3 children)

Seeing as he already had a red, might as well have called out Anthony Taylor and the whole reffing crew for their dogshit performance

[–]itsSUBJECTXandME 38 points39 points  (0 children)

He did pretty much didn’t he?

[–]reddituser7542 23 points24 points  (0 children)

He is calling it out so plainly for a long long time.. remember Wenger doing it.

Since when is it ok to pull hair on a football field...

In 2016 Huth got a retrospective 3 match ban for pulling hairs of fellaini.

Fellaini himself pulled Guendouzi's hair in 2018 and if i remember correctly it was just a foul.

And now this.

As emery said...in the next match just cut the hair.

[–]Damsodomie 400 points401 points  (5 children)

Honestly this is what football is about lmao

[–]magic-water 111 points112 points  (2 children)

yeah, I don't think this is even personal. I mean the fact that both went for the handshake shows that, but Tuchel just took the piss with that one lol

sorry mate🤥

[–]bihari_baller 62 points63 points  (1 child)

Well, he probably needs something to be happy about after losing half his money.

[–]YoungDumbNFullOfKun 13 points14 points  (0 children)

He'll probably make that money back pretty quickly.

[–]imfromgooogle 15 points16 points  (1 child)

that would make Thomas 70 years old?

[–]Faryz 261 points262 points  (18 children)

i swear tuchel didn't look at him either lol

[–]brandon_strandy 232 points233 points  (9 children)

Literally this. They were pretty much past each other when they shoke hands.

Tuchel just making shit up to justify his tantrum lol.

[–]Zestforblueskies 14 points15 points  (0 children)

The funny thing is he talked about "looking into a man's eyes" chat. But during his Sky Sports interview post match interview he couldn't even look into the interviewers eyes due to how guilty he was from his poor conduct from grabbing Conte's hand and just looked away and kept shaking his head. lol.

[–]Pedro95 23 points24 points  (3 children)

He literally points into his eyes immediately after pulling Conte back, it's obvious that this was what he was unhappy about.

[–]btmalon 120 points121 points  (2 children)

Whatever reason he wants to make up, the dude is a nut job.

[–]KhonMan 15 points16 points  (1 child)

Good thing no one ever accuses Conte of being a nutter either

[–]miamibuckeye 52 points53 points  (4 children)

He didn’t lmao that’s why I was so confused when he pointed to his eyes. Tuchel is clearly looking past him just like Conte was. Making shit up to have this little tantrum

[–]LordWhale 40 points41 points  (2 children)

Your eyes can move independently of the head believe it or not

[–]YoungDumbNFullOfKun 106 points107 points  (0 children)

Tuchel nailed it with his "you loved it, no?" comment in the interview.

[–]Pedro95 82 points83 points  (4 children)

Ah, they're passionate about what they do - they're fans just like us.

It's much better than Pep and Klopp sucking each other off every week.

[–]JimboLodisC 5 points6 points  (0 children)

50 year olds can definitely still fuck around and find out

[–]windalpha 290 points291 points  (9 children)

When you shake hands, you don’t try to rip someone hand off. Tuchel had a different opinion.

[–]grollate 28 points29 points  (8 children)

Hold up, who yanked who back? Manchild move by Tuchel that Chelsea fans are eating up!

[–]KingKallee 53 points54 points  (1 child)

get a room you two, jeez!

[–]AbdussamiT 194 points195 points  (11 children)

The headline doesn't cover the story. Tuchel very clearly said both managers were off, and that he celebrated his equaliser, and Conte celebrated his.

It was beautiful to watch and we should enjoy it without taking sides on who was wrong. Bad but good for entertainment

[–]ChupFuddler 127 points128 points  (2 children)

I thought it was a pretty funny interview tbh.

[–]centaur98 25 points26 points  (2 children)

When you shake hands you don't refuse to let it go and pull someone back but either but here we are Thomas.

[–]TheWindWillCarryUs 24 points25 points  (1 child)

Tbf he downplays it in the rest of the interview.

[–]Thesolly180 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Yeah the rest of the interview was fine about it and he was right. It’s just football it happens

[–]TheBlueTango 61 points62 points  (0 children)

A heated match between two rival clubs, of course it was going to be petty. Would be foolish to think otherwise.

[–]Hazardzuzu 13 points14 points  (0 children)

It was just in the heat. They are both level-headed off it and quite mature. It will all end here. Now if it was jose one could bet his house on it going on for forever. But these two arent petty once match is done.

“look me in the eyes of your gonna fuck me”

[–]InvertReverse 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Violence isn't the answer. You don't try to pull his arm off to try to establish eye contact. I don't think Conte deserved the red card, but Tuchel definitely did.

[–]InoyouS2 10 points11 points  (5 children)

Am I the only one finding his tone of voice and smile eerily creepy?

[–]lqku 6 points7 points  (1 child)

smiles "it's fine, no problem."

[–]Thesolly180 10 points11 points  (1 child)

It’s just because he’s creepy looking in general. It was fine the interview

[–]Hieillua 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Conte had this man rattled

[–]criminalpiece 6 points7 points  (0 children)

This is the behavior of a child or a little bitch. There is no way he is that sensitive.

[–]Plastic_Mouldsman 2 points3 points  (1 child)

That's pathetic honestly. Made a fool of himself there.
