The winter break across Europe has accounted for a big chunk of Chelsea’s loanees enjoying a festive holiday, but there has been plenty to talk about from those who have played, as we hit the fifty-goal mark for the season too. Headliners There was enough incident at Carrow Road, where Norwich met Derby, for an entire article in its own right. Norwich went into the day second in the Championship,…

The Christmas edition of the Loan Reports bears gifts for all, with goals from the wise men of Tenerife, Sheffield Wednesday, and Aston Villa. Our festive story begins in Birmingham. Headliners Tammy Abraham is officially the most in-form goalscorer in English football. His 9th goal in his last eight appearances came in the early stages of Aston Villa’s big Sunday clash against Leeds, and looked to have set Dean Smith’s…

Two more goals in the past seven days nudge us closer to the half-century mark before the end of the calendar year, with Tammy Abraham and Kylian Hazard providing the goods. Headliners Abraham has been in good nick for Villa, with a glut of goals a fortnight ago lifting him into double figures for the season, and a penalty on Saturday at home to Stoke took his scoring run to…

After all the goals in last week’s Loan Report, we have none this weekend, after a quiet seven days overall. Let’s catch up on how everybody’s doing anyway. England Premier League Kurt Zouma returned to the Everton starting eleven for their midweek clash with Newcastle, for whom Kenedy missed out injured, and the Frenchman was in good form again. He’ll hope to retain his place when the Toffees host Watford…

For one week at least, it’s Tammy Abraham’s world, and we’re all just living in it. The England forward scored five goals in two matches over the past seven days to reassert his claim to be the best forward outside of the top flight. Headliners After scoring and winning the man of the match award in last Sunday’s derby win over Birmingham, Abraham led an in-form Aston Villa into an…

Big matches call for big players, and Tammy Abraham stepped forward in the Second City Derby on Sunday, scoring and being named man of the match as Aston Villa beat Birmingham at Villa Park. Danilo Pantic also returned from injury with a pair of goals for Partizan Belgrade. Headliners Villa have been upwardly mobile since Dean Smith replaced Steve Bruce (with John Terry on his coaching staff), but Birmingham have…

The Loan Army returned to some semblance of normalcy this week, with plenty of players continuing to tick over nicely, a handful missing for various reasons, and Tammy Abraham scoring another goal. Headliners Abraham scored his fifth goal of the season for Aston Villa and did so against Fikayo Tomori, Frank Lampard, Jody Morris and Derby County. He and Assistant Manager John Terry claimed the bragging rights in a Chelsea-infused…

After a steady if unspectacular few weeks on the loan front, things exploded back into life over the past seven days, with a bunch of goals and noteworthy talking points. Let’s get stuck in. Headliners It’s a good time to be Jacob Maddox. Turning 20 on Saturday, he scored his first professional goals in midweek by notching a brace in Cheltenham’s Checkatrade Trophy win against Arsenal’s Under-21s, and followed that…

Another week, another goal for the Loan Army. It wasn’t the most spectacular seven days, but the 40-strong group continues to churn along rather nicely overall. Headliners Michy Batshuayi provided the goal as Valencia drew 1-1 at Young Boys in the Champions League; his smart touch to create the chance was followed by the composure to round the goalkeeper and tuck away his second goal of the season. It hasn’t…

We’re back with a full Loan Report after the international break, and we’ve got another Tammy Abraham goal, as he begins life under a new manager in positive fashion. Headliners Abraham’s form has been pretty good so far at Aston Villa, registering three goals in six games heading into the weekend, but the club’s overall record under Steve Bruce was woeful and led to a change of manager. Dean Smith…
