Really Gem? Was he that impressive? Good news if so, as I had kinda resigned myself to the fact that he would make a good Championship player, but would never be good enough to make it through to the Chelsea ranks.

Well, it's not the hardest task to tame the Sheffield United forwards, but what he was asked to do, he did well. Couldn't tell you if he was Premiership class, but I was impressed from what I saw.

rough deal being played out of position in an international, but good to know he's getting and taking his chances at Championship level, unlike poor Scott who really should have gone to Palace...

If he is doing the business at Championship level, then I wouldn't at all mind seeing us ship off Ben Haim in the summer and going with JT, Carvalho, Alex and Macciene as our centrebacks next season.

Especially as we still have Essien and Ferreira who did pretty decently there last season when required.

In my opinion, if we are serious about youth development, we really should reserve some squad places (like 4th choice centre back) for promising youngsters.

Unless he is a really really promising player (at least Bendtner promising, preferably Rooney promising), i'd rather wait until I see him doing the business at Premiership level the way TBH and Sidwell were prior to joining Chelsea before I think seriously about replacing them with youngsters like him in the squad.

But maybe i'm just overly cautious...
