      2-2 at the break. Neco Williams scored with a screamer after good work on the left from Larouci and Jones. Oldham equalized after a poor pass from Notes led to a breakaway, then they scored again off a corner. Harvey Elliott leveled late in the half on a rebound after good work from Jones, who had hit the post earlier.

      Too low of a camera angle on this, but good halves from Larouci, Jones, Adam Lewis and Isaac Christie-Davies. tough half from Boyes and Bobby Duncan .

      Best feature in a nearly empty stadium is you can one angry guy registering his opinion on everything!

      Agree on all points. I thought the guys who looked closest to senior level were Larouci, Jones and Lewis. Elliott is technically gifted. Christie-Davies took an injury and the guy who replaced him, Dixon-Bonner, was very poor. Duncan had a tough game too.

      Van Den Berg is very composed in the ball. Not sure how he defended.

      Van den berg got caught out once or twice and needs to be more dominant at set pieces but a lot of promise

      Definitely the match to focus on today as the U23s were beaten 4-0 by Spurs.

      Brewster, Elliott and Ryan Kent all started for the team.

      Kept going on about "the schoolboy" who appeared to be the biggest person out there. At that age there's always the question whether a player is excelling because he's that good or is he just physically dominant over the others.

      Just spent 45 minutes watching our team try to play out of the back, mostly unsuccessfully. Chelsea scored on a bit of a mistake by Kelleher who went out late to challenge after a long ball had eluded Van den Berg and the Chelsea forward. When the goalkeeper tried to tackle, he tumbled over and the Chelsea player scooped into an empty  net. Didn't get to see much from Brewster, Elliott, Jones, etc.

      Hopefully the 2nd half is better.

      Need to try and play more in their half. Feel for Brewster who is far too isolated. Chelsea look bigger, stronger and quicker so hopefully we can get a foothold in the game

      really men vs boys, with Batushayi scoring twice. Harvey Elliott off injured now and they have hit the bar twice in last few minutes. Never want to be harsh on young players, but not a pretty picture .

      Edit: I guess Harvey only went off for a minute

      I did some research because as I was working out, it occurred to me that the Chelsea team might have been much older than the 11 we sent out today. I was thinking that if our boys were mostly 18 and theirs 3-4 years older, it might work against us in that the physical difference marked by those growing/developing ages might have just made it too much of a mismatch (because they did look bigger and was definitely a one-sided match).

      What I found out re the ages though is a different story, minus the two first team players who they gave a runout  to today.

      Chelsea                     Liverpool
      Cumming - 19            Kelleher - 20
      Lamptey - 18             Hoever - 17
      Rudiger - 26              Boyes - 18
      Guehi - 19                 Van den Berg - 17
      Maatsen - 17              Larouci - 18
      Mola - 18                   Kane - 20
      Gilmour - 18              Dixon-Bonner - 18
      Uwakwe - 19             Elliott - 16
      Anjorin - 17               Jones - 18
      Castillo - 19               Lewis - -19
      Batshuayi - 25           Brewster - 19

      Our subs (on at 60 minutes, Neco Williams, Tony Gallacher and Bobby Duncan - are 18, 20 and 18, respectively).

      So as you see, excepting the two first team players, the ages are fairly similar. I suppose we could have used Shaqiri and Lallana, or Lovren, but probably would only give them such a runout for a home fixture. Anyway, the difference in the overall game and not j ust one or two guys being physically dominant. Hopefully it is a learning experience somehow for the team, but it did make me wonder how many of them are ready to play in a League Cup match, for instance.

      To be fair mate having two quality experienced players in the opposition side can make a huge difference and lift the young players as well.

      Wouldn't read too much into it still very early in the season and the likes of Sepp and Elliot still finding their feet here.

      Rudiger and Batshuayi make a massive difference there.
      Would be like Liverpool starting Lovren and Origi.

      Fair enough to you and baz, but if you watched the game you'll see I'm not exaggerating the one-sidedness of it. I'm not saying none of our guys can come good, just that they all looked far away yesterday.

      Chelsea have the biggest farm of youth talent in the country.
      Now with the transfer ban they've kept most of the young talent at the club instead of loaning 20+ players out.
      No surprise to see them so strong.

      Plus an average age of 19.5 vs an average ag of 18 is not what I'd call "fairly similar".

      Rudiger 26.
      Batshuayi 25.

      van den Berg 17.
      Elliott 16.


      Huge gaps there.
