'If It's Football, It's Vital'

The Way It Is!

It`s always sad to hear that Chelsea have let some youngsters go but that`s the way it is.

Football is a competitive sport and with clubs harvesting crop after crop of young talent, decisions have to be made.

Therefore, it was perhaps inevitable that Chelsea let some of their youngsters leave, by mutual consent, with it being announced yesterday that the following had left by mutual consent;

James Ashton
Conor Clifford
Ben Gordon
Rohan Ince
Adam Phillip

The club explained that the decision had been taken to let them leave now to give them the chance to find another club before the market is swamped by the plethora of youngsters released by clubs in May.

Our best wishes go to the all but especially Conor Clifford who, was once, touted as the next Frank Lampard.

Good luck lads.

I must admit how the club have handled letting these boys go is really good and how it should be done. As Neil bath said if they let them go at the end of the contract in the summer they will battle hundreds of other players trying to find clubs at the same time. By laying up there remaining 5 months of the contract and letting them go now it gives them a head start to find a club and have to battle with hundreds of oner free from contract players. Well done CFC. Well played and thoughtful.

The end of dream for them and the realisation that they will have to settle for a career in alower level of football!

They can make it in the championship if they are hardworking, they are youngsters who will inadvertently progress with time, carlton cole did, and forsell?

Good thinking atleast.

For all of them this is blessing in disguise. AT least they have a chance now to actually find a club where they may have to play and possibly develop a professional career. That was certainly not going to happen at Chelsea FC.

The first 5 of many to be released by us as we never give them a chance in the first team like Liverpool, Arsenal etc.. do . To play for Chelsea first team you have to be worth >20m and an international (I know there are some exceptions like BA). Ake is the prime example he is always on the bench (I think he played for us only for 3 minutes) and WILL always remain there unless we get a coach who gives youngsters a chance.

B2k420,not a coach but a management who gives youngsters a chance

Atleast someone realized that they are ruining these players and they need to see playing time somewhere.
