Billy Clifford: Staying at Colchester

Clifford, who joined the U's on loan last month, agreed an extension on Tuesday after an impressive spell in north Essex.

The Blues youth product, who has made five appearances so far, is now looking forward to the rest of the campaign.

"I've spoken to the gaffer here and to people at Chelsea and they've been really happy with how I've been doing," he told the club's official website.

"It has been a really good experience so far. The gaffer has been fantastic to me and the players have as well, so I'm glad that I took the chance to come here.

"This has definitely been the right move for me, and it has been a chance to experience life away from Chelsea, to play games and experience living with another team mate and I think I've coped well so far."

He added: "Physically, I feel better than I have been before and I can't wait to attack the rest of the games in front of us."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
