UEFA Youth League: Chelsea 2-2 GNK Dinamo (Chelsea win 4-2 on penalties)

The UEFA Youth League never fails to bring out the best of Chelsea, and although their Quarter Final victory over Dinamo Zagreb featured plenty of bad, all the hallmarks of their successful history in the competition were front and centre when it mattered most. Two-nil down with an hour played. Staring defeat in the face with fifteen minutes left. Even after captain Luke McCormick hauled them back into it, the…

The Loan Report: March 26-31

While many of Chelsea’s players continue to disappoint, several of those out on loan keep on doing things that lend volume to their cause of hopefully one day featuring in the Blues’ first team, again in some cases. With five different players scoring since the end of the international break, there are no shortage of contenders. Headliners Our first two goalscorers come from the Championship, but in both cases, the…

Under-18s: Norwich City 0-0 Chelsea

It’s extremely rare for Chelsea’s Under-18s to have nothing to play for at this time of year but, without a league title or an FA Youth Cup at stake for the first time in five years, they travelled to Norwich for Saturday’s league fixture with an unfamiliar feel about proceedings.

Who Can Make Us Whole Again?

Let’s clear one thing up nice and early: Gareth Southgate should not be Chelsea manager. Even in the wake of his selection of Callum Hudson-Odoi, any notion that he’s a realistic candidate to lead the Blues at any point in the future shouldn’t be treated seriously, regardless of what social media is saying. What he’s doing with England, however, is something that Chelsea and many other clubs could do well…

The Loan Report: March 11-17

There are three more goals to bring you in the latest issue of the Loan Report; one from a player very much in people’s attentions, one who might be, and a third who is not so much. Headliners The latter came from Danilo Pantic, a Serbian forward who hasn’t quite made the progress Chelsea would have hoped him to in the four years since adding him to the Loan Army….

Under-18s: Chelsea 0-1 Brighton & Hove Albion

This isn’t the sort of match Chelsea lose in academy football, but then this season hasn’t been quite the same as those that have preceded it, so perhaps the stoppage-time defeat to Brighton at Cobham was appropriate. The highs of the last half a decade are not easily repeatable; success is not guaranteed, and it’s easy to overreact when it comes to an end. Last weekend’s defeat to Arsenal all…
