J.Mceachran: It's Time For The Blues To Give A Serious Thought To This Lad
|Chelsea need to give a serious thought to the young midfielder…|
Joshua Mark “Josh” McEachran ever heard that name lately? Yes readers I’m talking about our 19 year old young left footed talented midfielder, Last you would have heard of him would be on 17th January 2012 when Josh completed a loan move to Swansea City. And on finalising the deal he told Blues News that he was looking forward to working under former Chelsea reserves coach and Swansea manager Brendan Rodgers. I want to get game time to be honest, and it will be good playing for Brendan. Swansea play really good football and I’m looking forward to it.
Well AVB sent him there in a move which was meant to benefit the U-21 Three Lions midfielder and provide him more playing time. Which at Chelsea he unfortunately couldn’t get due to an already packed and experienced midfield.All and all at Swansea he made just 4 appearences which is quite poor for a young talent like Josh in my opinion.
However, under the management of Villas-Boas he was given a more advanced attacking role. Villas-Boas commented on McEachran saying “This is a youngster with so much talent, Physique-wise, there is nothing to him at the moment. In the changing room you see him getting ready to go and train and he looks nothing like a footballer. His power and pace is in his head.
|Great abilities and calm and composed on the ball; needs playing time|
Chelsea and the board should have Josh in their sights in their long term plans. The ability this lad has is impecable and he has proved it from 2009 or so. Josh even got the Oxfordshire Sport Award: Sport Man of the Year 2010 and Chelsea Young Player of the Year 2011 which justifies his talent.
|Our number 10 Mata has got nothing but words of appreciation for Josh.|
turned to the other Chelsea coaches next to me and said, ‘That’s Liam Brady!‘ It was the biggest compliment I could think of at the time.
|Josh has even blown away his viewers with his sensational performances at the international level….|
It all depends on the CFC technical directors and management.In my view Josh is ready for the next level and if Chelsea don’t provide him enough playing time they will never know how good he can be or how good he will be. This young lad pictured above is an emerging talent and deserves his chance and if Chelsea don’t give him one he could be on his way to another loan move somehwere else.
Till then KTBFFH fellow Blues as always…
