Chelsea fans have been left to dejavu experience after another surprising managerial sacking.
The club announced the departure of Thomas Tuchel after just 100 matches.
And on the 100th day of Chelsea’s summer takeover by Todd Boehle, the American is already preparing to take on a new coaching role.
His predecessor Roman Abramovich was famous for swinging an ax brutally when times were tough in the hot seat of Stamford Bridge.
Now Chelsea fans fear Boehle will maintain the tradition when he bids farewell to the famous Tuchel.
Some even joked that Abramovich still secretly runs the club through his replacement.
Someone said: “What if Roman Abramovich was running the club through Todd Boehle?”
Another added: “Todd Boyle is Roman Abramovich in disguise. You can’t tell me otherwise.”
One wrote: “I think Todd Boyle is just a patron of Roman Abramovich.”
Another post: “Thomas Tuchel just sacked, Roman Abramovich runs Chelsea through Todd Buhle. You can’t tell me otherwise!”

Gary Lineker added: Chelsea have sacked Thomas Tuchel.
“It was not long before the new owner followed his predecessor’s policy of shedding the first real decline in form.”
During Abramovich’s 19-year tenure at Chelsea, he hired 14 different managers and He built a reputation for pulling the trigger.
Although the Russian celebrated two Champions League titles in addition to five titles in the Premier League and the FA Cup in that period.
Tuchel had led Chelsea to winning the Champions League for the second time in just two seasons, when he replaced Frank Lampard.
The German then witnessed Abramovich’s departure in the summer alongside club managers Petr Cech and Marina Granovskaya.
And his relationship with Boehly appeared to have developed after he was handed over £250m in the transfer market.
But only a week after the window was closed, Tuchel received orders to walk.
Brighton’s Graham Potter as well as unemployed duo Mauricio Pochettino and Zinedine Zidane are among the early candidates to replace him.
