Despite another embarrassing loss, Graham Potter will continue to lead Chelsea
Potter won’t lose his job as a result of our 1-0 home loss to Southampton, adding another blemish to his record. According to Matt Law of the Telegraph, who we know has a close relationship with the new Chelsea ownership group, Todd Boehly and Behdad Eghbali.
They made Potter their choice and vowed to support him despite all odds; thus far, they have lived up to their word. Respect must be shown for that. These, however, are intelligent men who will be familiar with the sunk cost fallacy better than any of us.
When Potter is eventually fired after a few games, many fans will consider this to be folly and will point to the previous few months as an example of the ownership’s ego taking precedence over decisive action.
On the other hand, nobody will be upset if he wins the Premier League. When their miserable season reached a new low with a 1-0 home loss to Southampton, Graham Potter admitted that he understood why Chelsea supporters were jeering at him and his underperforming team.
Chelsea had won just one of their previous nine games overall since the year’s beginning when they played the Saints. Although Southampton appeared to be a great opportunity to resume winning, Potter’s club has a history of blowing chances and did so once more.
