I'm not sure of there's a thread elsewhere or maybe a couple of disparate ones about certain members of the board/club hierarchy but I thought now would be a good time to post a thread giving them som

Guys we've done it, we've officially had the most successful transfer window not only in Chelsea's history but in the world of football. Called out for a Striker--Costa--32 mil. Called out for a CM--C

Quite seriously, do the people who hate him and are happy to see him leave know why they are happy? Just to take a step back and take an overview of his role and time at the club: When he was pro

Marina leaving could have a big impact on our transfer activity this summer but she was never going to be staying long term after Roman sold.

Let's see what Boehly is made of this summer as it sounds like he has taken control of the Lukaku negotiations.

Will be interesting to see now what happens to Cech. I don't think his role is perhaps as intertwined with the old ownership as Marina and Buck were, and his affection and standing within Chelsea is way beyond the board room. He's been in his role at the club 3 years now learning and developing and from what it sounds like he is a hugely important link for Tuchel at the club so he doesn't have to manage upwards perhaps to the lengths he did at Dortmund and PSG, so I'm hoping Cech stays.

Guess we know why we’ve done fuck all so far. Seems like everything is in flux behind the scenes and Matt Law mentions that Boehly himself is negotiating transfers. A guy who doesn’t know the ins and outs of European football. 

Hopefully he installs a top class DoF soon.

Boehly-Clearlake will almost certainly have to appoint a new sporting director but until then Boehly and Tuchel will take on the bulk of the responsibility left behind by Marina Granovskaia. [Matt Law- Telegraph] #

Yes but he’s not exactly going to be doing it blindly or chasing League 1 players lol, don’t worry. Someone who has taken over a European super club and runs a hugely successful franchise as it is, I wouldn’t be surprised if he is as shrewd as he’s made out to be. He undoubtedly will have done his homework, as will scouts at the club and he will undoubtedly have huge inputs from Tuchel on preferred targets.

Getting jumpy because nothing has happened yet is standard OTT panicking for on here but theres so much other things that need to be done ie. new chairman, someone replacing Marina long term, all the loose ends and structuring/restructuring after the take over, replacing/continuing sponsors who left/suspsended deals after Roman was sanctioned amongst others undoubtedly plus new deals for Reece and Mason will be a top priority. It sure doesn’t happen overnight. Patience is needed for this first month or 2.

Timestamp 08:18. Matt Law confirms Marina was in fact in charge of transfers at Chelsea: "She ran the club. She decided on contracts. She decided on transfers. Every football aspect needed her sign-off."

This is what I thought. I have said for years that she must've been the one in charge of final sign off as she clearly had a lot of power and most after RA  but people refused to believe it and made out like she was some number crunching bookeeper. 

Personally, I don't think it was the plan to have Granny leave this early in the process (Buck doesn't really surprise me, as I always suspected TB would step into his role) as we're in the middle of the window and she has obviously been the go to contact but something must've happened/been realised. 

My suspicion (obviously all this is) is that the contract management and transfer handling hasn't gone down well when they've actually got their feet on the ground and TB/Clearlake are of the opinion it cannot go on.
