Without checking I would imagine so, Mark was there. Tom Hitchcock is Kevin's son.

Thanks for the twitter updates Juni, Mellis on good form then for England u19 - what went wrong at Soton for him?

Think France u19 drew with Ukraine 0-0, not entirely sure though.

Difficult to make your way into a winning team. Plus, he can't play in his preferred position of a centrally attacking midfielder as that's reserved for Lallana. Mainly tried on the right side which is not his best position. The experience though will serve him well.

My report is up, but I've noticed some discrepancies with the official site...

Conor Clifford then sent a curling freekick skimming inches past the post

He didn't, it was saved.

But seconds after the restart a Rohan Ince back pass was intercepted by Southampton's Sam Hoskins, who calmly slotted past Walker with his first touch on the stray ball.

Nothing like what happened, Walker missed his kick, Hoskins wasn't near it. At least that's how I saw it, and 4/5 others I know of saw it (and everyone else reacted as if that happened). If I'm wrong then bloody hell my eyes are seeing things, we'll see next Friday on ITA, but I'm certain it was as I said and Trailblazer will hopefully back me up!

Devyne had a shot scream inches over the bar

Feet, not inches.

Milan Lalkovic had a goal disallowed for offside before the referee blew for full time.

Whistle went about 5 seconds before he put it in tbf.

Chelsea (4-diamond-2): Sam Walker (Aldi Haxhia HT)

4-2-3-1 most definitely, I noted that on more than one occasion, and Haxhia was not a half time replacement.

The OS is wrong and I can bring more witnesses to the table if you want! It was the highlight of the afternoon and the only topic of discussion in the half-time. You are right on other errors as well from what I remember - haxhia coming on as a sub later, whistle being blown earlier and the shape.

Did Haxhia's news ever came on the official club channels? Surprised to see him today. It might be that he will be released at the end of the season. To be fair, Blackman was named on the teamsheet.

Van Aanholt is back at Cobham. He came over to meet Brendan in the second half and the pair embraced each other quite warmly. Brendan asked him about his loan experience at Newcastle and Van Aanholt had only good things to say. It also appeared that Brendan had watched a couple of his games(probably the Swansea or Watford one) keenly as he was discussing some finer details with him.

Disappointed to lose a two goal lead as I thought we had a good number of chances to win the match. Sala must have had at least 9-10 shots in the game. He had a very good first half. Sampayo I thought had a solid outing at leftback and Ince was a rock at the back. Somebody needs to tell Gokhan that he can't make a career at the highest level on dribbling alone.

Yeah, PvA came and sat behind me with a friend for ten mins or so. I queued for a drink at half time next to Brendan, he appeared to be escorting some young lad, paid for a cheeseburger for him.

Good to know I'm not going mad :D
