He won his first game 3-2 vs Vitesse in Conference league. Vitesse was actully playing much better and Spurs were pretty lucky to win.
To be fair to Conte its a miracle he got that shower of shite to win a game.

That sounds familiar. Still, too soon to judge. He needs more time to get the results by playing like shit.

Fair result tbh, Everton and Spurs are really evenly matched and both have new managers so it will take time for them to even think about challenging for a CL spot. The rspective owners and fans will have to be patient, kinda like Inter fans:proud:.

Kind of weird for Conte to go somewhere he can't challenge for the league title.

Maybe he wants to milk some more money and retire earlier.

Antonio Conte has banned ketchup, mayonnaise, sauces and pizza among other things from Tottenham Hotspur’s canteen, a far cry from Watford boss Claudio Ranieri offering pizza as a treat for clean sheets.

Italians take their food very seriously indeed and that goes for the sporting level too.

Conte famously made sweeping changes to the diet of his players at Chelsea and has done the same on his return to the Premier League for Tottenham.

According to The Athletic, in his first few days at Spurs, Conte banned everything from ketchup and mayonnaise to pizza and other fattening foods.

It does have an effect, just see what it did for Romelu Lukaku’s form at Inter during his two seasons at San Siro working with Conte.

That is what Conte is now trying to bring to his Tottenham players, but another Italian manager in the Premier League understands the importance of treats.

In 2015, Ranieri famously promised his Leicester City players pizza if they kept a clean sheet, and could well maintain that approach now he is at Watford.

Nice attempt but not-top-mentality players will just order junkfood delivered at their expensive homes.

Leicester won the league with Ranieri at helm. Tottenham was close. With Conte, why not?

That Tottenham declined in the past 3 years, they had prime Verthongen, Dembele, Eriksen, Alderweireld, Walker etc. now none of these are there
Conte is there;) remember when he insisted on the likes of Ashley, Darmian everyone here (incl me) were like wtf. With Conte yelling on the sideline, current players will double their performance. And I think this also answers the question why Conte went there in the first place, he doesn't need superstars, he only needs the right players that will do whatever he says no questions asked.

also, Romero is an ex Atalanta star, Sanchez had some positive media, Reguilon ex Sevilla player, and Ndombele - the guy he wanted to sign. Seems like he is in the right place.

I watched some parts, they were very bad in first half, but then watched 15 minutes during Inter's half time when they scored for 2-1 and looked a bit better. Still far from what they should look like, but it's early.

Still, it's not the same. There is no player in the midfield that can do what Dembele did for them and losing him to a rich club before reaching a CL final... looking back, big mistake. Reguillon is okay, but on the other side, Walker was their...Hakimi/Maicon.

I believe Conte will make many changes to their midfield come next summer.
