It’s been another marquee week on the loan front, with Kevin De Bruyne, Nathaniel Chalobah and Ulises Dávila all finding the back of the net and making a positive impact for their teams. We’ll begin chronologically with Chalobah, who returned to Watford’s starting eleven on Saturday after being rested last weekend, and scored his first ever professional goal in a 2-1 win over Wolves at Vicarage Road. In a performance…

It was an unusual week on the loan front, as none of Chelsea’s numerous youngsters playing elsewhere this season managed to find the scoresheet; just the second time this season that that has happened. So, in search of the focus of our attentions this week, we turn to Josh McEachran. The spotlight has been on the young midfielder more than usual in the last seven days, beginning with a 90…

His brother is one of the most famous faces in world football and a veritable world-class talent, but for this week at least, Thorgan Hazard takes centre stage in the Loan Report after scoring his first two goals for Zulte Waregem. ‘Esseevee’ have been enjoying their best ever season in the Belgian Jupiler League and it’s certainly due in part to the second eldest of the four Hazard brothers. Thorgan…

Pride of place atop the Loan Report here on TheChels typically goes to those who make a notable impact in their performances. If someone scores a goal, they’re typically guaranteed to feature prominently, no matter their reputation or level of ability. So, for the second time this season our first focus is squarely on Ulises Dávila. The Mexican netted for Spanish Second Division outfit Sabadell on Saturday night to help…

Each week of the 2012-13 campaign up to this point has seen at least one Chelsea loanee find the back of the net, giving us a guaranteed headline act to focus upon in the weekly Loan Report. For the first time this season though, there was no goalscoring action to speak of, although it was hardly for the lack of trying. Therefore this week acted more as an affirmation of…

Kevin De Bruyne extended the impressive run of Chelsea loanees finding the back of the net this season with his third goal in Werder Bremen colours this weekend. It’s with the Belgian that we begin this week’s Loan Report. De Bruyne got the weekend off to a strong start on Friday night away to Augsburg, grabbing his team’s only goal in a 3-1 reverse. There was more than an element…

As regular readers of The Loan Report will know, we like to highlight big achievements as and when they occur. Typically, this takes the form of a goalscoring performance by one of Chelsea’s young loanees, and more often than not it’s a big, recognisable name. However, every now and then it’s one of the more obscure faces who makes an impact and gets to stand front and centre. That’s the…

The Belgians are good. Kevin De Bruyne scored for the second successive week for Werder Bremen in Germany whilst Romelu Lukaku helped keep up the momentum in a fine start to the season for Chelsea’s loanees with his second goal in West Bromwich Albion colours this weekend. It’s with the big striker that we start this week’s round-up. Lukaku was named in the starting eleven for the first time by…

Each week this season, the Loan Report (or the International report, as it predominantly was last week) has featured a Chelsea youngster scoring for his temporary club. That trend continued this week with Tomas Kalas, Kevin De Bruyne and Milan Lalkovic all finding the back of the net for the first time this season, and although Lalkovic’s was ‘only’ in friendly action, it nonetheless represents another positive step for his…

Transfer deadline day saw the number of loan departures from Chelsea rise to 23. Michael Essien and Yossi Benayoun are unlikely to feature in the weekly Loan Report here at TheChels because they’re senior pros moved on because they don’t fit into the first team squad, whilst our focus is, of course, primarily on the younger generation of footballers at Stamford Bridge. There’s still plenty of those though, and where…
