      I wonder if he has a future under Klopp? Given our injury troubles it baffles me a bit that hasn't had one mi ute of senior football over the last 2 months. It's a shame because he showed more in this two appearances for Wales last September than Solanke has shown all season.

      I'm also confused by it, can he really be worse than Solanke, is that even f**king possible?? Klopp clearly doesn't like him for whatever reason so if I was him I'd be looking for a move away.

      I figure with Ox and Lallana out he would see some minutes but Klopp preferred TAA playing in the attack CM role then giving Woodburn a shot, which is odd considering he kept him at the club because with Phil being sold he didn't want to be left short options yet doesn't seem interested in using him at all.

      He certainly needs a season long loan somewhere.
      Has to start playing in competitive games in order to develop.
      Been impressed by his bulking up
      Looks pretty impressive.

      He was unlucky to at the tail end of last season to be hurt when he could of featured in a few Premiership games while our focus was on the UCL but it good move for him to get some playing time under his belt to help his development. Looking forward to see what he can do at the Championship level

      a loan and some meat and potatoes can only be good for him. He needs playing time and grow into his body.

      Blades not too far away from play offs last year.

      Wales international goalscorer so I assume he will get plenty of game time.  No idea what system they play but I assume Klopp prefers it to Steve Bruce's brand?

      Yea, Jürgen does seem to be picky as to where these lads go on loan.

      Every weekend I usually flick through Livescores' app to see how our loan players get on.

      Sadly, like today, it seems young Ben is usually an unused substitute. What a waste of time for him and us. Should recall him and tell Sheffield United to do one in future.

      I watched one of their live games recently as well. They're sh*te. Might as well have sent him to Stevie.

      Only goalkeeper situation can be solved with a loan move.

      In most cases I agee. Liverpool have said in the past that they won't loan to teams who miss treat our players. Celtic found that out last window. Our players are getting a chance at Rangers. I think that should be the go to place for talent like Woodburn.

      Couple of things they're 4th at the moment can't be that sh*t and if they are says more about Woodburn not being able to fight his way into the team,no? If he's good enough they'll play him.

      Have you watched them play? They're average Championship material that'll be up and down all season. No where near Premier League quality.

      If you want to say that Woodburn isn't any better than other bench players in the Championship I'll be very surprised. Have you not seen him play either?

      I'm saying if Woodburn is good he'll play,the Sheffield manager isn't gonna bench him outta spite.He shouldn't get a start cos he's a Liverpool player.I've only watched him on dodgy streams for our ressies/ u-18's,i know he was sick/injured but not setting the world on fire since.

      At least we could play him in the reserves, give him some focussed coaching. There is no point loaning a player out if he doesn't get games.

      Realistically he will probably never make the grade here. Don't want to rule out a young kid but its very difficult.

      Most of our young players that have made it here in the recent past have been defenders. We have one of the best attacks in world football so you have to be extremely special to break in here now.

      An 18 year old Michael Owen might struggle. He would give it a good go obviously but that is the level we are at now.

      It's because Sheffield United are doing well with their current setup. Top of the championship, they're premier league material. If we loaned him to Blackburn or another mid table side, he'd be getting games.

      It's also a long season Ben needs to sit patient until he gets the nod then he needs to prove his worth.

      Nonsense both Fowler and Owen would get games/chances in this team, Woodburn is not even close to their level at that age.

      Poor loan move all around if he isnt playing. Never really got the hype around the lad though in all honesty but he muat have something.

      Another example of loans never working. Should have never left. Would gain more training with the first team than training with second rate talent in the championship
