But was O'Connell representing his firm as he stood outside Stamford Bridge? Not in name. But there’s no such thing as anonymity nowadays. As daunting and restrictive as it might seem, we’re all representing our employer all the time. We are not wearing those name badges you get at conferences, but we might as well be. Was it trial by social media? Undoubtedly, but this is the new jurisdiction. In future, angry football fans will be best advised to head home and stew without sharing their thoughts in front of any cameras.
