The past week had no goals, but there’s still plenty to catch up on from the Loan Army, so let’s get started. England Premier League Danny Drinkwater made his long-awaited(?) Burnley debut in the Clarets’ midweek defeat at home to Manchester City. It was his first senior competitive league start since March 2018, and just his second in any competition, so when manager Sean Dyche explained his absence at the…

Izzy Brown, Mario Pašalić and Jake Clarke-Salter added to the steady flow of Loan Army goals this season, so they’re the Headliners in this week’s edition of the Loan Report. Headliners Pašalić is a well-known commodity now; a versatile attacking midfielder who’s good for a few goals every season and plays at a high enough level to be of interest to Chelsea in the future. After logging ninety minutes for…

With the last international break of 2019 firmly in the rear view mirror, the Loan Report is back to check in on Chelsea’s far-flung charges, with Iké Ugbo and Conor Gallagher taking centre stage as they have for most of the season. Headliners Gallagher has been outstanding in his first four months in senior football, starring for Charlton Athletic in England’s second tier, and shining bright when the spotlight is…

Mario Pašalić announced himself on the Champions League stage this week while Iké Ugbo carried on his prolific form in the Netherlands. Let’s get into the latest Loan Report. Headliners Pašalić’s second season with Atalanta has been a bit of a slow burner in terms of substantial performances; playing regular minutes in the midfield rotation, he’s an entirely reliable and capable option, but has added goals back into his game…

Every now and then, someone comes along and takes centre stage in the Loan Report without having really made a significant impact earlier in the season. This week, Kenedy does just that, scoring his first goal for Getafe in an otherwise quiet seven days on the Loan Army front. Headliners Kenedy has actually had a fairly good time of it in Spain so far; earning regular Europa League minutes to…

Iké Ugbo and Mario Pašalić brought the goals this week in another productive seven days for the Loan Army. Headliners Ugbo wasn’t initially credited with Roda’s opening goal in Friday’s 4-2 win over NAC Breda, as it appeared to belong to Roland Alberg, but closer inspection showed that Ugbo got the slightest of touches to it. As a striker, and as someone challenging for the golden boot, he was certain…

We’re back from October’s international break with a pair of Championship goals for you; one from a familiar source, one not quite so much. Headliners What a season it’s been for Conor Gallagher so far. A star in the second tier in his first few months in the adult game, he’s going from strength to strength for an upstart Charlton Athletic team, and might have saved his best moment for…

The Loan Report has been headlined for most of this season by Iké Ugbo and Conor Gallagher, and this week is no different, as they each found the back of the net again to keep their stars burning bright. Headliners It’s been a strange week for Ugbo in the wake of stories claiming that Roda have been using the money sent to them by Chelsea as a salary contribution to…

We’re back for another week of Loan Report nourishment, and have a couple of goals to lead the way; one from a familiar face, one not quite so much. Headliners Lucas Piazon’s two-year loan to Portuguese side Rio Ave effectively sounded the death knell on his Chelsea career, and gives him enough time to settle into his new surroundings with a view to a more permanent arrangement moving forward. He…

A quiet seven days on the loan front brought us little by way of goals or headliners, but plenty of development nonetheless, so let’s get stuck in. Headliners Conor Gallagher has been the star of the show so far this term, starting his career in the professional game with a small handful of goals and assists at Charlton, form that this week earned him the EFL Championship Player of the…
