I read a lot on the site about the youngsters getting into the team and was therefore really interested to see for myself. On the evidence of just this match, none of them are are ready yet.
Browning and Galloway clearly are stronger lads and, Galloway in particular, looks like he could develop. The standout player was Walsh in midfield; tiny in stature but very capable footballer and only 17.
Henen, bags of skill but flattered to deceive. The left back, although responsible for the first goal, looked as though he had good qualities.
Finally Dowell in just 7 minutes showed real ability and Charsley/Byrne energy and commitment.
3-0 to Chelsea was hugely flattering but we created just 2 or 3 chances all game; loads of passing, skill but no real cutting edge.

Our boys were behind CFC in terms of technique, fitness and speed but, considering the age difference, did fairly well although we lacked real creativity.
Henen looked like he had something about him but I was surprised how skinny he was, he needs to add a fair bit of power to get anywhere near the Premier League.
A bit of a disappointment but Chelsea really do have the very best at youth levels.

We seem to lack someone able to pull all the disparate parts together for our youngsters since Irvine left.
