Under-18s: Chelsea 7-0 Norwich City

October 31, 2015

Chelsea’s Under-18s emphasised that they are the team to beat in the South League this season as a resounding 7-0 win over Norwich City this Saturday lunchtime extended their lead at the top of the table. It was perhaps as one-sided a contest as you might see at this level all year long, with Miro Muheim and Iké Ugbo each grabbing themselves a brace as Chelsea bossed things from first…


Under-21s: Chelsea 1-3 Tottenham Hotspur

October 30, 2015

A week that started badly for Chelsea’s Under-21s ended badly as a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Tottenham Hotspur at Aldershot on Friday night consigned them to consecutive defeats inside five days. Shayon Harrison once again played the role of chief tormentor, extending his own outstanding individual record against the Blues with a pair of goals either side of captain Milos Veljkovic also weighing in on the scoresheet. Tammy…


Under-21s: Chelsea 0-2 Manchester City

October 26, 2015

Chelsea’s Under-21s remain without a win since the opening day of the season as they went down to a 2-0 defeat at home to Manchester City on Monday evening. It was a typically close and well-matched contest between two of the country’s leading academies but City fared better on a chilly evening at Aldershot’s EBB Stadium and won courtesy of a first-half Bersant Celina free-kick and a late second from…


The Loan Report: October 19-25

October 25, 2015

The goals continue to flow steadily on the loan front and we have three more to bring to you this weekend, beginning with a pair of Championship headliners. Headliners John Swift’s month-long stay at Brentford is due to end next weekend but, considering his impressive recent form has coincided with a three-match winning run, the odds are that the Bees will extend the deal until the turn of the year….


Under-18s: Chelsea 2-0 Reading

October 24, 2015

Chelsea’s Under-18s extended their lead at the top of the South league table with a 2-0 win over second-placed Reading at Cobham on Saturday morning. The two teams were separated by just a point coming into the contest and the margins were just as fine for the majority of the proceedings, but goals from Charlie Wakefield and Harvey St Clair meant the Blues were able to clinch victory despite a…


The Loan Report: October 14-18

October 18, 2015

The Loan Report returns from the international break with more goals for you to enjoy and, as usual, it’s Vitesse Arnhem leading the way. Headliners The Gelderlanders are now the Eredivisie’s leading goalscorers after they racked up five for the second consecutive outing. PEC Zwolle –a handy team in their own right – were the unfortunate victims of the latest hammering, going down 5-1 at home to a Vitesse side…


Under-18s: Fulham 2-2 Chelsea

October 17, 2015

A goal in the fifth minute of stoppage time rescued a 2-2 draw for Chelsea’s Under-18s away to Fulham on Saturday morning. Richard Nartey’s composed strike at the death found its way through a crowded penalty box to ensure the Blues took a deserved share of the spoils, having taken a first half lead from a Harvey St Clair penalty, only to watch Fulham turn the game around thereafter. Both…


Under-21s: Chelsea 0-3 Benfica

October 16, 2015

Chelsea’s Under-21s endured a frustrating evening at Aldershot’s EBB Stadium on Friday night as they went down to a 3-0 Premier League Under-21 International Cup defeat at the hands of Benfica. Goals from Diogo Goncalves, Joao Carvalho and Ruben Dias were sufficient to claim victory against an experimental Blues side featuring a number of players who, for one reason or another, haven’t had as much football as they would have…


The Loan Report: The Season So Far

October 11, 2015

The current round of international fixtures has arrived at what is roughly the quarter point of the season so far. It therefore gives us a good opportunity to take stock of things on the loan front where, as has become customary now, another thirty-something Chelsea youngsters are out plying their respective trades in alternative colours. Vitesse No club has more Blues youngsters than Vitesse’s five and things have generally gone…


Under-18s: Chelsea 5-0 Swansea City

October 10, 2015

Chelsea remain top of the Barclays Under-18 Premier League after a resounding 5-0 victory over Swansea City at Cobham on Saturday. The gulf in class between the Blues and the Category One newcomers was clear throughout and goals from Mukhtar Ali, Isaac Christie-Davies, two from Jacob Maddox and a first at this level for Malakai Hinckson-Mars ensured a suitably comprehensive final score, and it could easily have been more. Swansea…
