Blues have endured a season marred by setbacks, with each successive misfortune surpassing the previous. Making it one of their most challenging campaigns in recent memory for Chelsea.
Upon Roman Abramovich’s departure, Todd Boehly arrived as the club’s presumed savior. However, he has been plagued by a series of ill-fated decisions, one after another.
The first in a series of poor decisions was the sacking of Thomas Tuchel, which reportedly stemmed from a disagreement over Boehly’s request to have his children in the changing room during halftime, according to talkSPORT.
The decision to dismiss Graham Potter, who replaced Thomas Tuchel, was met with disapproval. Especially considering that Frank Lampard, his replacement, took until his seventh game in charge on an interim basis to secure his first victory at the club.
Furthermore, Boehly’s ill-fated attempt to troll Real Madrid backfired spectacularly. Causing an immediate backlash and embarrassment for the club.
What has happened under Boehly for the blues?
With only two weeks remaining in the 2022/23 season, blues current standing in 11th place is far from what Boehly would have anticipated. Especially considering the staggering €611m/£541m spent on transfers in just two windows since his takeover. This is according to transfer market.
Acknowledging this fact, an article published on the official Chelsea website provided a glimmer of good news for the supporters amidst the club’s challenges.
