Fans react after Potter and Tuchel experience contrasting results
"I am a Chelsea fan, and I agree to replace Tuchel with Graham Potter was a mistake. That joke of an owner probably wanted to do away with everything that has Abramovich in the club. Now he is costing my beautiful club. It's so sad.
"Sacking Tuchel wasn’t a mistake. Replacing him with potter was."
@FernandoBlue97 even requested an apology to be rendered to Thomas Tuchel:
"Boehly has to apologize to Tuchel."
Another fan, @DP82476681, stressed the Blues will regret parting ways with the German tactician:
"Tuchel brought fresh energy to the club and had them playing some of their best football in recent years. Chelsea will regret this decision."
@OpTicmachine bluntly said:
"Sack him [Potter]."
