THE BIGGER PICTURE: Boehly and Co. were expecting much more when investing £600 million ($745m) on fresh faces across the last two transfer windows and – with Frank Lampard now calling the shots on an interim basis – the Blues’ board are making the players aware that current standards are unacceptable.
AND WHAT'S MORE: The Telegraph reports that Boehly entered the dressing room following a 2-1 defeat to Brighton in a bid to get his message across. He allowed Lampard to finish his post-match review before getting involved, with it pointed out to Chelsea’s squad that they can still salvage their campaign by staging a stirring fightback against Real at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday. The post-match appearance followed an apparent feud with a section Blues supporters after the full-time whistle.
