Kinda annoying though...how the 3'rd placed team from the group Athletico gets offered a route back into the CL, whereas we get dumped in the very next round.

A.Madrid at least finished 2nd in their league and would have been in next years CL anyhoo ,whereas we funked any chance of CL even in the latter stages of this mediocre season with home results against Spurs,then W.Ham(2bh if we had won those 2 that would have done it imho) never mind Huddersfield 1. But alas this has been a repetitive cycle in alot of years by not making the team stronger when winning a major trophy and trying to kick on and dominant more for it usually is the opposite for our board/club and leaves us 5th in da league with the prospect of Thursday night footie and lots of more mediocre teams yikes!:clap:Well done board well done players well done manager,just win the fffffin fa cup now ffs

I admit i dont take enough interest in the academy nor the England teams but I've been checking out the U20 World Cups and I was suprized that there was a severe lack of our lads in the teams, And as our youth teams seem to win about everything going I wondered why this was?

I have this theory that it MIGHT be because allot of our lads have grown up playing together so they work well as a team unit. But MAYBE they aren't the best individually??

The same in other teams too.

Other of our academy teams yeah? Not with it right now
I mean that other teams' academy players also play together from young age, so at some point individual qualities aren't negligible.

Chelsea youngster hailed as the next 'big player' - and it's not Ampadu or Hudson-Odoi

Wee Billy FTW. I love the Scots. I am sure I am in minority here but I on my Bajan side I have a lot of Scottish blood in me. I am sure its where I get my temper from. My entire mum's family back in Barbados is mental as fuck and all attribute it to the Highland blood.

Checking In On The Under-18s

http://thechels.net/2019/02/checking-in-on-the-under-18s/

It’s all felt a little different for Chelsea’s Under-18s this season.

The biggest and clearest difference is their premature exit from the FA Youth Cup; having won five in a row and seven of the previous nine, their Third Round exit at the hands of Manchester United was their earliest elimination from the competition in a decade, and has naturally raised questions from more casual observers as to why that happened.

Throw in the fact they’re not top of the league table either, plus their defence of the Under-18 Premier League Cup ending after the group stage, and it’s easy to get the impression that this has been a disappointing season so far. Hold your horses though.

The successes of previous seasons are the exception. A treble followed by a quadruple is not easily achieved nor is it easily repeated. Five Youth Cup triumphs in a row has only happened twice in sixty years. Last season’s perfect storm saw the graduation of an immensely-talented group of players now too old to play youth team football, while several of those who are still eligible have moved on to bigger and better things.

The bar has been raised. It is forever being raised at an academy that continues to set the standard on and off the pitch in England. So, when the first half of the 2018-19 season goes as it has, murmurs creep in that those standards have slipped. Yet Andy Myers’ team have lost just once in the league as the calendar turns its page to February; as many as Jody Morris’ team lost last term, and one fewer than at the same stage of in 2016-17.

Still reports of Petr coming in on some level with the academy.

I doubt Lamps would be interested as he seems to have more ambition but with JT getting experience at Villa and many others of our old players around we really should be bringing them in and utilizing them

Use them in all sorts of ways. Part of the DOF team, scouting, youth training in every way, ambassadores,. helping  in all ways with the 1st team - aids between players-manager-director, character,pride,development and instilling all things Chelsea like.

We have some great strong role models for players to look up to and we should be making the most out of them. I'm sure they would love to come in to do this kind of job. And I doubt Roman hasn't already thought about it.
