A couple of months into a new era at Chelsea FC, and naturally, seismic shifts have taken place.
The old guard of Marina Granovskaia, Bruce Buck and Petr Cech have all departed, leaving Todd Boehly and co in charge. Such an abrupt transition would normally have fans feeling uneasy, but transfer market rumblings have shown glimpses of promise. Going by reports, the American owners are prepared to spend big, although moves have failed to materialize so far.
Fan opinions on the new owners remain mixed, and a sense of obscurity looms large, especially in regards to the main man himself, Todd Boehly. His glittering ownership record of sports franchises gives no clue of whether that success will carry on forward into football, and the American appears to have no social media presence either.
Nevertheless, Chelsea fans yearning for more insight into their new owner did some digging and eventually managed to find Boehly’s verified Twitter account.
Created in April of 2018, the account has been long abandoned and also appears to have been tampered with.
The profile has virtually no activity to look into, aside from 5 replies which are either cryptic or obvious mistakes, depending on how you look at it.
A majority of these were random letters strewn about knitting no feasible meaning, with the only one of interest being a response to a tweet by Tottenham Hotspur.
Replying to Spurs’ tweet after a UCL draw against Manchester City back in 2019, Boehly’s account sprouted out random letters once again, making zero sense.
However, the mere presence of his reply was enough to incite a bit of panic amongst Chelsea supporters, who are still coming to terms with board member Jonathan Goldstein being a lifelong Spurs fan.
Nevertheless, considering the subject manner and the rest of the tweets, there’s almost certainly nothing to be worried about. If the American wants to dismiss any alleged Spurs links, a few signings would certainly help.
