Several leagues reached their conclusions this weekend, and several players said their goodbyes after loan spells, but there’s still plenty of football to be played. We’ll start at Vitesse, who have a lot still to play for. Headliners Their final league fixture of the season away to Willem II saw them fighting for position in the Eredivisie’s Europa League playoff race. They’d already qualified by virtue of their thrashing of…

We’re edging closer to the 100 goal mark from the Loan Army once again after a productive weekend at home at abroad.

It wasn’t the busiest of weeks on the Loan Army front, but there’s still enough to catch up on from the past seven days, including one certain goal for Mason Mount, one emphatic one from Danilo Pantic, and one that Fikayo Tomori is claiming even if the powers that be have ultimately disagreed. Headliners Mount’s goal – his eight of the season and the 86th overall by Chelsea’s loanees –…

Chelsea’s Loan Army is on course to set new records for total appearances, total minutes played, and clean sheets this season and, although they’re likely to fall short of last season’s 126-goal extravaganza, they are in with a solid chance of reaching the century mark for just the third time. Four more were added to the total this week, lifting us to 84, and they came from far and wide….

A relatively quiet week on the loan front lacked significant headlines and several English-based players saw their fixtures postponed due to heavy snow and freezing weather. With nothing specific to focus on, let’s dive straight in. England Premier League Inclement weather rarely results in postponements in the Premier League, however, and so a full schedule of matches went ahead. Kurt Zouma was in superb form for Stoke at Southampton, but…

A steady pace of loanee goals continued this week, despite Michy Batshuayi being held off the scoresheet for the first time at Dortmund, as Kasey Palmer and Mason Mount chipped in with strong performances instead, whilst Joao Rodriguez also found the net again. Headliners Palmer’s season hasn’t exactly gone the way most had hoped way back in August. Fresh off the back of helping Huddersfield to the Premier League, he…
