New to the game, but clearly a hilarious character & great addition. I sort of want to use this thread to document his legacy. The entertainment value he provides is endless, and so I hope everyone can contribute to posting hilarious Boehly moments ITT.
Work in progress:
There is a general feeling of aggravation within the Premier League by the fact that the Chelsea hierarchy are getting involved in just about everything (M. Delaney, The Independent)
Officials at European football’s governing body are planning to set a five-year maximum for the length of time over which a player’s transfer fee can be spread, with the new policy brought in before the summer transfer window. It is understood the move comes after a number of clubs raised concerns with Uefa over Chelsea’s policy.
Fifa’s regulations state that players’ contracts should be a maximum of five years unless they are allowed to be longer under the laws of a particular country, and there is no restriction in the UK.
Uefa will not prevent Chelsea from spreading the cost of the players they have signed already — defender Benoît Badiashile has a 7½-year deal, Wesley Fofana is on a seven-year contract while striker David Datro Fofana signed a 6½-year contract with the option for another year included. However any signings made from the summer onwards are set to be subject to the new five-year maximum when it comes to amortisation.
8.5 year contract football is a madness.
Basically means he has to become a club legend and spend half his career at their club.
Tell em get they money up
be real transfer policy is only slightly more shameless than the previous regime, overpay for hype, play like s***
