The Loan Report: November 2-8

November 8, 2015

We’re usually pretty blessed with activity in the Loan Report with the majority of weeks full of goalscoring action from across Europe. This week…not so much. In the absence of any true headliners, we’ll dive straight into the country-by-country looks. England Nathan Aké continues to lead the way with Premier League minutes, continuing in his role as Watford’s starting left-back with their trip to Leicester City. Up against Riyad Mahrez…


The Loan Report: October 26 – November 1

November 1, 2015

The streak of weeks featuring at least one goal from a Chelsea loanee is up to six after Juan Cuadrado, Mario Pašalić and Dominic Solanke weighed in with efforts this past weekend. We begin with the latter and the upwardly-mobile Arnhem contingent. Headliners Vitesse were looking to bounce back from a disappointing home defeat to Ajax last time out and were handed something of a ‘get well’ fixture away to…


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….


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…


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…


The Loan Report: September 28 – October 4

October 4, 2015

The goals have been flying in left, right and centre on the loan front in recent weeks and there was no let-up over the past seven days either. We have three more to bring you to kick off the latest Loan Report, beginning with a first-ever senior strike for Jordan Houghton. Headliners The 19 year-old midfielder joined League One side Gillingham in August on a deal initially expected to last…


The Loan Report: September 21-27

September 27, 2015

Business is beginning to pick up on the Loan Report front as, after two goals last weekend, we have four to bring you this time around. Headliners We start with Mohamed Salah, who has scored in three successive Roma fixtures, carrying straight on from where he finished last season with Fiorentina. After notching a nifty volley at home to Sassuolo last weekend, he produced a smart finish in a 2-1…


The Loan Report: September 14-20

September 20, 2015

It’s a far busier Loan Report this weekend after a damp squib last time out with two wingers, each harbouring ambitions of returning to Stamford Bridge for another crack at the Chelsea first team squad, grabbing their first goals of the season. There were also assists for two of the five Blues in Arnhem but we begin with Victor Moses. Headliners Moses caught the eye with an impressive West Ham…


The Loan Report: September 7-13

September 13, 2015

The first Loan Report after the international break is a very quiet affair with little of note to discuss over the past seven days. Somehow that’s possible with 33 loanees to cover, but here we go anyway. England Patrick Bamford, Nathan Aké and Christian Atsu were all left out of their respective matchday squads this weekend and, indeed, Bamford is the only one to see any Premier League action so…


The Loan Report: August 24-30

August 30, 2015

The Vitesse contingent take centre stage in this week’s Loan Report with a pair of young English talents on the scoresheet, one of them for the first time in senior football. Headliners Vitesse hammered Cambuur 4-1 on Sunday afternoon in a match they dominated from first to last without ever hitting their full capacity. Two of the five Chelsea youngsters stationed in Arnhem started – Lewis Baker remaining an ever-present…
