Save for the odd public message here and there—including this season's note on the cover of the matchday program against Hull City Tigers—the intensely private Russian has had little to say.
Rather than reduce the sense of intrigue that surrounds him, however, Abramovich's silence has only acted to heighten it.

Over the next 10 slides, Bleacher Report has imagined some questions Blues supporters would love to sit down with Abramovich and get answers to. Inevitably there will be others, so feel free to comment in the section below. Who knows, you may one day get the opportunity to ask the man himself.
