Todd Boehly, owner of Chelsea, travels to America on business to avoid embarrassing himself on the last day

When Chelsea take to the field after their final match of the 2022/23 Premier League season and go on the lap of honour around Stamford Bridge, Todd Boehly will be nowhere to be seen. Continue Reading>>>>

Whether Boehly felt that by spending €611m/£541m (per transfermarkt) would be enough to ensure consistent success is unclear, but it certainly was never going to be the only thing that sustained a challenge at the right end of the table.

 

As it turned out, there were genuine worries at one point that they could even slip down towards the relegation spots.

Regardless of that, Boehly would have earned much more respect had he been brave enough to walk around the Bridge and take the heat. Instead, he’ll be thousands of miles away, washing his hands of things for another few months.
