Get Them Out: Chelsea owners depicted as clowns as fans launch ‘get them out’ campaign

Chelsea fans have launched a ‘get them out’ campaign against the club’s owners and have printed stickers with Todd Boehly depicted as a clown.

BlueCo, the consortium led by Boehly, Clearlake Capital, Mark Walter and Hansjörg Wyss, took control of Chelsea in May 2022 from Roman Abramovich.

The west Londoners enjoyed a trophy-laden spell under the Russian but it has been nothing short of disaster for the club since the ownership changed.

Chelsea suffered an abysmal 12th-placed Premier League finish last season and are struggling again this term with the team currently sitting 11th in the table.

They have failed to land any major silverware since Boehly came in as co-owner – losing the Carabao Cup final to Liverpool in February – and have completely rebuilt the squad, replacing a number of established stars with young wonderkids on massive contracts, spending over £1 billion on new players.

Thomas Tuchel was the head coach when the takeover was completed but he was controversially sacked and replaced by Graham Potter by the new owners.

Potter was then also removed from the role following a dismal run as Mauricio Pochettino came in this summer following Frank Lampard’s stint as interim boss.

Chelsea fans are fed up with BlueCo and have now launched a campaign against their owners, printing stickers which they plan to place around Stamford Bridge.

The poster reads: ‘Clownlake. Three ring circus. Get them out, we want our Chelsea back.’

The Chelsea Supporters’ Trust penned a damning letter to Boehly and Behdad Eghbali this month, warning that a lack of clear direction could lead to ‘irreversible toxicity’ and that ‘more impactful forms of protest’ could be on the way.

‘The current mood amongst supporters is critically low and cannot be ignored,’ they wrote. ‘The feeling that the club has become a ‘laughing stock’, both on and off the pitch, is growing.

‘The Chelsea Supporters’ Trust regretfully believes that we are close to, if not already experiencing, a significant shift in supporter opinion that could result in irreversible toxicity, almost irrespective of results on the pitch.

‘Unless the situation improves, this seems likely to manifest itself in more targeted chanting, especially at televised games, and quite possibly more organised, overt and impactful forms of protest by some sections of the fanbase.’
