  • "Mangoputney: There MAY STILL be a place for Eustace within the SQUAD? Well, we disagree. We need the guy on the pitch. Not MAY, but DO.

    As for the Neuton bashers, I posted after the Brighton game that I was majorly worried when Fitz went off injured, to be replaced by Neuton... especially once we had conceded a daft penalty. But he was outstanding for the entire time he was on the pitch. It's all about who covers for technically gifted players like this... and that is where the apparently invisible Hogg, or the more visible JE, are so important. As long as Eustace comes back fully fit, he still has another year or two as a key midfielder. In fact, he will thrive with the creativity around him, in my view.

    Time will tell."

Nathaniel Chalobah will remain on loan at Watford until the end of the season.

Confirmation the 18-year-old, who has an enjoyed an impressive first half of the season for the Hornets, is not a surprise after Gianfranco Zola told the Watford Observer on Monday that "it looks like" the midfielder would stay at Vicarage Road for the remainder of the campaign.

The paperwork has now been completed and the England Under-21 player is also available to play for Watford in their FA Cup third round tie at Manchester City on Saturday.

Zola told Watford's official website: "It's great news for us. He has become an important player for us since he came to the club.

"His performances have been getting better and better so we are delighted Chelsea have decided to leave him here.

"It's good for Nathaniel and it's also good for Chelsea because he is getting a lot of benefit from this experience.

"It is a huge boost because if we want to keep improving and chasing the teams in front of us we need to have good players and Nathaniel is one of them."
