Who's moving the goal posts now? It's not about their status as a determiner of Conte joining (what does that even mean?), it's debunking this nonsense that you're spewing that Chelsea were so far behind the rest of the contenders for the title, that Conte, in all his magnanimity, bestowed divine mercy on them by deciding to join them, and performed a miracle by suddenly making them title winners.
Chelsea under Abrahamovic has always been a top team which has invested a lot in being competitive, Conte knew full well that he'd be able to contend based on the quality of the squad at the time and the additional investments that would be made after he was appointed.
Even then he wasn't satisfied.
You comparing that to Inter, in its present state is a laughable notion. Conte joining Inter would truly be charity.
Anyway, I'll be the bigger man here and meet you halfway... you're accusing me of being deliberately obtuse and I'm doing the same... so this is pointless. Although I admit I probably wasn't massively respectful from the outset, but whatever....
You are right, Chelsea were a better bet for an EPL title when Conte joined them (note the relevant point in time here: this is why I am not accepting your inclusion of Conte's 1st season in this debate - we are talking about Conte's decision making process at the time of choosing a job) than Inter are to win the Scudetto next season. I never disputed that. However, very few people fancied Chelsea to actually take the title that season. It surprised a lot of people and football figures in England still talk about Conte as a "genius" due to his switch to 3-4-3 and getting title-winning performances out of players like Victor Moses, David Luiz and Marcos Alonso. No one saw that coming.
The point is, the two situations are not light years apart. Juve will lose a Scudetto soon. Not next season, but soon. This has to be Conte's thinking. Juve will begin to go through some sort of transition next season without Allegri AND there is the fact that Suning have clearly promised Conte a lot of money on the market.... Inter will surely have the 2nd best squad, man-for-man, in Italy next season.
Two other things to bear in mind:
1) He has accepted Inter's offer, end of. Call it "charity" or whatever you want... although at 10 million a season I wouldn't really call it that....I call it Conte seeing promise in the project. Maybe that faith is misplaced - only time will tell.
2) He has turned down the huge "high profile" job offers you are suggesting he should be taking, i.e. Real Madrid. I am guessing he has also turned down PSG at least once as well.
Will he win Serie A next season with Inter? No, of course not. But a 2nd place finish within, say, 10-points of Juve, would be considered a huge success by absolutely everyone at Inter. Conte no doubt believes he can deliver that and potentially run Juve close within 3 years.
Maybe he gets the same kick out of this idea (resurrecting a fallen giant) that he got when he took over at Juve all those years ago? If he isn't thinking along these lines then why didn't he take the Real Madrid job?
