Is 2022-23 Chelsea FC a total reality show? Or a clown show? Maybe just a total circus? There is no right or wrong answer here, and honestly, the Todd Boehly Chelsea era (thus far) is perhaps a combination of all those things. In the words of Britney Spears, in her song “Circus”: All eyes on me in the center of the ring just like a circus When I crack that whip everybody gon’ trip just like a circus.
Smashing all the transfer spending records (and then smashing them again) just to continue not getting results on the pitch? All the managerial switches? Bringing Frank Lampard back after he already failed miserably? Clown car. Reality Show. Circus.
