Josh McEachran continues to be a hot topic amongst Chelsea supporter circles.
Everyone - at least everyone I have spoken to - is overwhelming excited at the prospect of this young man, only 17 years old, contributing to the club's future for many, many years. None, however, are ready to anoint him the future of Chelsea. A wise decision, I believe.
As pointed out by a CFCNet regular, not so long ago many were likening Jody Morris to Dennis Wise. So, clearly, treating McEachran's progress with a word of caution is necessary.
Still, it's hard to deny the young man's skill. I think we all can agree (maybe) that McEachran has exceeded all expectation already this season. He's not the longterm replacement for Sir Frank Lampard, as many would suggest. What he is, though, is a player whose talent reaches far beyond his years.
Peeps the visual buffet on offer below. This from a 17-year-old? In the Champions League? Sensational.
