Chalobah Away With England U19s
Friday, 13th Jul 2018 15:47
New Blues loanee Trevoh Chalobah is with the England U19s squad ahead of the European Championships in Finland and will miss Saturday’s trip to Braintree and perhaps all of Town’s pre-season programme.
The 19-year-old Chelsea central defender or midfielder has already joined up with the squad for the tournament which runs from Monday until the final on July 29th.
Even if England fail to make it out of the group stages, in which they play Turkey, Ukraine and France, Chalobah will be away until July 23rd when he would only realistically be able to play in the home friendly against West Ham.
Town have four other players who could potentially also be in the squad, Andre Dozzell, Tristan Nydam, Flynn Downes - all of whom have won caps at that level previously - and Ben Morris, who has played for the U17s and U18s.
The squad, which is already subject to a number of clubs refusing to release their players, is officially confirmed on Monday with England’s first match against Turkey on Tuesday.
Dozzell, who alongside Chalobah was a member of the squad which carried off the trophy in Georgia a year ago, is definitely not involved, Town having confirmed that he will be in their squad at Braintree tomorrow.
Elsewhere, goalkeeper Ben Amos, who was linked with the Blues recently, has joined Millwall on a season-long loan from Bolton.

Show ME, How You Do That Trick by Mullet
“It’s worth remembering the Championship is a really different prospect today, compared to when I invested 10 years ago.”
New Man, New Hope by SpiritOfJohn
As an occasional poet of the third rate variety, I have been scratching around for a few weeks trying to think of a rhyme or song to fit our new manager. Paul Hurst is hardly a name to get the creative juices overflowing, which is due to its no-nonsense shortage of syllables rather than his achievements in the beautiful game.
End of Season Grades by BlueBloke
Football might be one of life’s trivial pursuits in which it’s never quite possible to gain enough distance; I still wince, for instance, at the two Bobby Zamora goals that killed our promotion dream in the 2005 play-offs.
TS Eliot and the Football Waste Land by monty_radio
April is the cruellest month – or so TS Eliot once said back in 1922, the year of the publication of his poem, The Waste Land, when the FA Cup final was done-and-dusted by the end of April.
Away Day Report: Reading by BlueBloke
I wake up at 5.30am. I’d like to say it was in anticipation of watching the Town. Sadly, it owes rather a greater deal to an abhorrently early alarm on Tuesday morning and a very late night on Thursday. Still, now that I’m conscious I may as well start thinking about the day ahead.
