It was all a bit risky considering he might have ended up having to play Ethan at centre-back as a sub, though it seems more likely he would have shifted someone already on the pitch into that position (Azpilicueta for example) and covered them with a sub instead.
    Yes, definitely seems a more "political" decision to drop him, given Chelsea had (and used) Drinkwater on the bench.

    Michael Emenalo has resigned as Chelsea's Technical Director.

    Not a well-known name but he might have been expected to front up or at least contribute to Chelsea's team for the Ampadu tribunal.

    Not well-known as you say but hugely influential at Chelsea, signed a lot of their important players over a long period of time so some changes definitely going on there. Let's see how it affects their focus on Ethan's case.

    Backing up the original Exhausted I am reliably informed that most U21 players at the top clubs are on a Million a year. No doubt that is not a surprise to many who take an interest in "The Premier League" but of course 0% of a Million is the same as 0% of 20,000 or whatever. Is there not a straight forward explanation of how the system works on the Club's website - without giving away actual figures?

    He wouldn't even talk about them, let alone mention world class, if they both decided to play for England rather than Wales.

    He wouldn't be asked about them if they played for England.
