Here is what I got while taking a stroll on the street of Twitter after watching Thomas Tuchel’s debut match as Chelsea’s manager.
Tuchel’s first match as Chelsea’s manager against Wolves ended in a goalless draw.
Sincerely, it was the first time in recent months that I watch Chelsea’s match. However, the need to witness the first performance of the new manager made the match a must watch for me.
I felt indifferent about the match though, since I didn’t see any of the team’s match with the former manager, Frank Lampard. Hence, it becomes necessary to look out for reactions by football lovers on socialmedia.
Gary Lineker welcomed me into the street of Twitter with his reaction, expressing that Tuchel may end up also like other managers of the club.
“Goalless at Stamford Bridge. Can’t see Tuchel surviving this.”
Supporting this view, @CrniiiLabud comments that Tuchel would be worried of being sacked soon tonight.
@NewtonsJason seems concerned about the condition of Chelsea’s owner tonight; he commented with a funny gif that shows a child forcing food down his throat with sob. The caption reads:
“Roman Abrahamovich accepting the result of the first game in charge of new manager Thomas Tuchel, after sacking Frank Lampard.”
@thfc_AnderAlex an unrelenting Tottenham fan gives a sarcastic reaction about the zero difference between Chelsea under Lampard and Tuchel’s performance. See his comment below.
Can someone console @Starbioola to take things easy with the new manager, he is already biding him bye for the goalless result.
@BayernGit has decided to end the immature friendship with Chelsea on this same issue. See the farewell message:
“That’s it. That seals the deal. I’m no longer a Chelsea fan. I’ve been a Chelsea fan since 2021, and a season ticket holder since 2021. I will no longer watch on TV or renew my season tickets for the 2020-21 season. I’m going to Harampool where they have the most likes on Twitter.”
Please save this Chelsea fan, I suspect the fan doesn’t want Lampard leave Chelsea, but Tuchel’s arrival was imminent. @Khawstic cannot take this any longer, hence, swore to move to Manchester United. See the farewell tweet below.
However, Some football lovers commended the new manager’s performance, they believed he performed well despite having just a day training session with the team players. See some of the reactions here.
I must confess, I had a splendid moment watching the Blues play, in fact, I look forward to its next match against Burnley this weekend.
