‘Never got a proper chance’ – fans react to McEachran move

Fans of Chelsea and Brentford have been reacting to Josh McEachran’s move across west London.

The midfielder, who had been on the books at Stamford Bridge since 2000, completed a four-year move to Griffin Park on Friday.

Brentford fans were immediately excited at the prospect of watching McEachran, who at 22 still has his best years ahead of him.

Blues fans reflected on the loss of a player once tipped to be a long-term successor to Frank Lampard in the Chelsea midfield, and had different theories behind his failure to live up to that tag.
