Levi Colwill – The Cobham Commander

Levi Colwill first came into the spotlight (for Chelsea fans who can only watch broadcasted matches) when he was starting in the FA Youth Cup at just the age of 16. He impressed (the game against Bradford City comes to mind) and not long after found himself starting development squad games, still at 16 years... Continue Reading →

How Chilwell has emerged as Ashley Cole’s heir apparent

A few months ago I was convinced that the Chelsea hierarchy were making a huge mistake in targeting Ben Chilwell as the club’s next long-term left back. The position has been a major weakness in the squad since Ashley Cole left Stamford Bridge in the summer of 2014 (excluding two scintillating seasons of Marcos Alonso... Continue Reading →

Sergio Reguilón Scout Report

After completing his debut season without signing any players, Frank Lampard has already taken an early plunge into the market as he looks to assemble the next great Chelsea squad. Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner have been brought in for a combined £85 million, and should go a long way towards improving the side’s goal... Continue Reading →

Henry Lawrence – The Versatile One [Scout Report]

Henry Lawrence... (Image Source - TCC) Chelsea and 'youth' are two words which before this season didn't go together at all, but the arrival of Joe Edwards, Jody Morris and Frank Lampard in the home dugout as well as the transfer ban certainly changed that linkup. As fans have seen the likes of Mason Mount,... Continue Reading →

Lewis Bate – the Sidcup Seedorf

Since the restart of football following the coronavirus break, a number of players from Chelsea's academy have been training with the senior squad, including Tino Anjorin, Armando Broja, and Henry Lawrence among others. Another was 17-year-old midfielder Lewis Bate, who, despite only being a first-year scholar, turned out to be the only one to make... Continue Reading →

Why Olivier Giroud will be crucial in the run-in and beyond

With a pirouette and a sweep of his right boot, Olivier Giroud once again proved to Frank Lampard how vital a role he will play in the remainder of this campaign, and potentially next season as well. His sweetly struck winner against Aston Villa on Sunday was his 3rd goal in 6 Premier League starts this... Continue Reading →

Could Abraham and Werner be the new Drogba and Anelka?

When Nicolas Anelka arrived at Stamford Bridge in the January transfer window of 2008, it seemed to the world that he was joining as competition to - or potentially as a replacement for - the great Didier Drogba. With the Ivorian forward sulking after the departure of his mentor, Jose Mourinho (even going so far... Continue Reading →

Scout Report: Ben Chilwell

Despite the news cycle currently revolving around the attacking options linked to Stamford Bridge (more specifically, German attacking options), it is evident that Chelsea have struggled defensively this season. While centre-backs who are an upgrade to our existing options are not available in the market in abundance, another position which has been suspect this season... Continue Reading →

Chelsea already have Jorginho’s ready-made replacement within their ranks

It looks like Chelsea mean business when it comes to incomings this summer. So far they have acquired Hakim Ziyech from Ajax and have an agreement to sign RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner. But, Chelsea manager Frank Lampard will have to balance it both ways where he will have some big decisions to make during... Continue Reading →

Who is generational talent Kai Havertz, and why should Chelsea go all out to sign him?

For months, the talk surrounding football has largely been of the huge effect that the current global pandemic will have on the market. Supposedly even the biggest teams would have to scale back on their usual splurges, forced to be stingy by the potential loss of broadcasting revenue as well as the lack of any... Continue Reading →

Who is Chelsea Target Nicolás Tagliafico, and why should we sign him?

With Leicester playing hard ball over a potential fee for Ben Chilwell, and Alex Telles flirting with PSG, it is conceivable that Chelsea could turn to Nicolás Tagliafico to take up the reigns as the long awaited heir to Ashley Cole’s left back slot. He would prove a price-effective option, with figures as low as... Continue Reading →

Federico Chiesa: Scout Report

Fiorentina winger Federico Chiesa has been one of the latest players to be linked with Chelsea over the last few days. But who exactly is the young Italian and what would he bring to Frank Lampards squad? Son of former Italian and Fiorentina forward Enrico Chiesa, Federico made his Fiorentina debut in 2016 in a...

Scout Report: Dries Mertens

Following Tammy Abraham’s injury and subsequent dip in form around the turn of the year, Chelsea were left in a very difficult situation: Frank Lampard was forced to pick between two centre forwards severely lacking in game time and match sharpness. The first to be given a run out was Michy Batshuayi. The Belgian striker... Continue Reading →

Dwight McNeil – an alternative solution to Chelsea’s left back problem

The general consensus amongst Chelsea fans is that left back is a priority position to improve come the summer, but there is a lack of standout options in the market. Ben Chilwell is thought to be Frank Lampard’s priority signing, but his late season form and the extortionate price tag it would command makes him... Continue Reading →
