Chelsea have done 'a Chelsea'.

The Blues have parted ways with manager Mauricio Pochettino after only 11 months in charge, with crucial disagreements in his end-of-season review ultimately leading to a parting of ways. Nothing is ever simple at Stamford Bridge, is it?

Predictably, social media went a little crazy with the news.

After just a few months of the 2023/24 season, this conclusion seemed inevitable as Chelsea continued to struggle on the pitch and Pochettino found himself at odds with a large number of fans because of his Tottenham roots.

However, 2024 saw a major upturn in form for Chelsea, who clawed their way back into sixth in the Premier League standings and will be playing Europa League football next year unless Manchester United pull of a miracle win over Manchester City in the FA Cup final.

The identity of the next manager was the subject of real debate.

Chelsea are on the hunt for the fourth permanent manager of the Boehly-Clearlake era and the possibilities seem endless, such is the unpredictable chaos of this current iteration of Chelsea.

Plenty of frustration was directed towards co-owner Todd Boehly, who has become the figurehead of Chelsea's ownership group despite not actually being solely responsible for everything at Stamford Bridge.

Reports suggest Boehly was not even involved in the meetings with Pochettino, but that did not stop fans from taking aim at the American.

Ultimately, whether fans wanted Pochettino to stay or not, the general feeling on social media was bad.

The desperate search for some form of stability continues.
