It’s been another productive seven days for Chelsea’s young loanees, with two players finding the back of the net in addition to impressive displays and debuts for a trio of Blues. In the top flight, it’s Daniel Sturridge who is making the headlines. Fresh off the back of two goals in his first two outings for Bolton Wanderers, he stepped his game up once again in front of the live…

So, as it turns out, goals are like buses. You go through the entire season to date with a handful of efforts converted by Jack Cork and Nemanja Matic, and then within the space of a week a flurry arrive all at once. This week’s loan round-up sees four goals scored by Chelsea’s youngsters, with others coming close to adding their names to the list in what has been a…

The past seven days have seen the number of Chelsea loanees increase to somewhere near what we would expect at this stage of the season, but circumstance has prevented a great deal of action. Let’s dive in. Gael Kakuta and Patrick van Aanholt embarked on new adventures for the remainder of the current campaign with moves to Fulham and Leicester City respectively, but neither has made an appearance in a…

Over the last few weeks, developments on the loan front have meant that this regular feature has become somewhat shorter than usual. With loans ending and winter breaks in European leagues, there has typically not been a great deal to report upon, but we return this week with news on the young Blues who are still plying their trade away from home. Rhys Taylor leads this week’s headliners, although for…

The winter period is a tough time for the fixtures list. Matches come at unusual intervals and on unusual days, whilst some countries decide to simply take a rest at this time. For the aspiring young footballer on loan, it can prove to be an eye-opening time. The first loan round-up of 2011 will take in the events of the last week and a half, with a very anglo-centric look,…

The final loan report of the year takes in a fortnight of action, as last week’s was skipped due to many matches falling foul of the weather. Nonetheless, there has been plenty to catch up on, so we’ll dive straight in at the top, with Michael Mancienne at Wolves. Unfortunately, the England Under-21 captain has been sidelined since December 4th with a knee injury, one which has led to Chelsea…

After a weather-affected first week of December, the loan report returns this week after a near-full calendar of fixtures was fulfilled. Unfortunately, Michael Mancienne was an enforced absentee from a rare and much-needed win for Wolves on Sunday after picking up a knee injury against Blackburn last weekend. The extent of the issue is not yet known, but it was enough to keep him out of contention this time around….

This week’s loan round-up will be a considerably quicker read than usual, as inclement weather and FA Cup eliminations meant that many of the young Chelsea loanees were left without action this weekend. Sidelined because of snow were Adam Phillip and Michael Woods as both Yeovil’s trip to Hartlepool and Notts County’s home tie with Bournemouth were called off, with the latter being a very late cancellation. Woods had joined…

League One was the focus of loan attention this week, as Conor Clifford extended his stay at Plymouth Argyle for another month, whilst Adam Phillip took his first steps in professional football. Phillip’s path to professional football hasn’t exactly been a typical one, having been discovered relatively late as a 15 year-old playing Sunday park football. But after two serious knee injuries in three years, he this week joined Yeovil…

The past seven days have been amongst the most productive so far this season for Chelsea’s young loanees, with two players scoring their first goals of the season. Let’s delve in. With another week of double-header action, Jack Cork and Ben Gordon both used the extra match to find the back of the net, the latter for the first time as a professional. The left-back had come close to opening…
