Josh McEachran pretty much did what most of us would expect him to do before the season started and asked AVB if he could go out on loan. It's seems that Fabio Capello's advice for Josh to do that was noted by our talented youngster so he asked the question. AVB's answer was a firm no and the reason's as to why he said no great to hear.

Featured in The Sun in his first major interview, McEachran revealed exactly what happened. He said:
"I did ask to go out on loan at the start of the season but Andre said he wants me to stay because he thinks I will get enough games here.

I saw in the paper that Fabio Capello wanted me to go on loan to get more experience but Andre is my manager and if he wanted me to go on loan, that's what I'd do.

It's not going to happen before the transfer window closes next week, but maybe it could happen in the new year.

When you're with a club as big as Chelsea you are always competing for a place in the team against world-class players so you know you have to be on their level just to get a game.

It does need a lot of patience but I prefer to be with a top-class club and training with world-class players every day.

I do feel much more a part of things under Andre Villas-Boas. He gave me a lot of minutes on the pitch during our pre-season games and hopefully I can keep doing that.

I have supported this club since I was a little boy and I do believe I have what is needed to succeed here. I've been patient all this time and I need to carry on that way.

Chelsea has one of the oldest teams in the Premier League and the boss is clearly looking to the future. He has just signed Romelu Lukaku, Oriol Romeu and Thibaut Courtois, three players of a similar age to me. So we all have to work hard in training and make sure we take our opportunities when they come.

Winning the European Under-17 Championships with England has been the highlight of my career so far, along with winning the FA Youth Cup for Chelsea. But now I want to get more game time with the senior team and the boss has said he'll be playing a younger side in the Carling Cup, so that could be an opportunity for me.

I really want it to happen for me at Chelsea. I've been here 10 years now and I don't see myself anywhere else. I am aware of the expectations and I have to deal with that. I know it is going to take time but I am prepared to wait.

If the manager says I'll get games here this season, that's very encouraging."
Now I just wonder where you the Chelsea fan reading this article and especially the comments mad by Josh stand as far as Josh playing is?. Some people are already asking for him to be playing week in, week out in place of Frank Lampard. Some people think that we need to ease him into the first team by playing some games, starting some games but not too many to help with his development because we don't want to see him suffering from "burn out" in a couple of years.

I am initially encouraged by AVB's stance and belief in Josh. The only thing that does concern me is that it seems at the moment he is only earmarked for the League Cup purely and simply based on what he has said..

Surely, we will see Josh coming in and being involved much more often this season?.

We have to sit back and remember just how young Josh is first of all and just how much progress he has made and how far he has come in just under two seasons..

There is no doubting his quality and the fact that AVB wants to keep him here is as like Josh says, encouraging.
