And he stayed there ... what is the point?
It's probably part of the agreement that if he's fit he has to either start or be on the bench. A great shame and hopefully his next move will be on loan to a Championship club where he'll hopefully get a decent run.

I can't help but think there is a bit of an over reaction on here. He's not making the bench for a run of the mill premier or championship club, this lot are a top 3 side in Germany. To be benching there is similar to doing the same at Man City, Liverpool and the like in my view. Give him time.

Agreed, but I can't help thinking that he might be a bit envious of the other youngsters who featured in Chelsea's Champions League win earlier.

I think it's also confusion as to why he seems to have been loaned out to a team which is arguably better than Chelsea and harder for him to break into.

Possibly but they are all older than Ethan. On the other hand they all seem to have benefitted from being out on loan to Championship clubs last season.

I think that Ethan made it clear that it was his preferred destination, although of course Chelsea were under no obligation to accept that. Maybe Lampard was playing the long game and attempting to keep him sweet ? One hopes that there is a clause in the loan agreement giving Chelsea the option to recall him in the January window, if he continues to get no playing time, and then indeed loan him to a Championship Club instead. Continuing as it stands for a whole season could be detrimental for both Ethan and Chelsea's interest.
