      You mean like we did with Owen ? Why was he thrown in

      Owen wasn’t rushed, he was just far too good to not play. Owen was a rare product, he was more than ready to start for club and country, similar to Mbappe being more than ready at that age too. With Owen he was played more than he should have been because of how good he was, he wasn’t pushed through at all.

      Now await the Greenwood and Owen comparison...

      Greenwood has done well but he really was pushed through because of the dire situation they were in. If he had competition for places then he wouldn’t be getting spoken about now the way he is. Greenwood barely played for the first part of the season, if they thought he was ready then they’d have played him a lot more. When Owen came onto the scene there was no breaking in period for him because he didn’t need it, he was already at that level.
      Often it’s a case of some younger players not playing enough, but Owen was the complete opposite and played too much. Owen won the Balon d’Or at what, age 20? That was a sign of just how good he was at a young age.

      You dont push people through if there not ready  though you are ready to be a given a chance or you ain't pretty simple really

      Of course you can, I remember we ended up having to push Damien Plessis into the team before he was ready. Lots of players get pushed through in the hope they will be the next big thing, like what also happened with Macheda for example, he came on and scored a couple of big goals and suddenly they thought he was good enough to do more...and it backfired with him.

      I was replying to competition faced to get on the bench fairly f**king obvious he has the front 3 as competition and rushing players ? You mean like we did with Owen ? Why was he thrown in


      Cos Stan was on his way out. We were finishing 4th in a two horse race, best way to keep fans onside throw a supposed new superstar in.

      And we still got beat by Wimbledon!!

      Injuries and suspensions during our European campaign was the reason for that.

      Yeah knew there was a reason, couldn’t quite remember why, just remember he showed he wasn’t ready for the step up at that time after his solid debut if I remember right.

      Owen is similar to Greenwood in that they took to it like duck to water whereas you say Macheda and Duplessis sunk my issue with concern with Rhian is as you say so much pressure on now you dont really get chance to just throw them in as the pressure to win is that great and he will always go with Bobby

      Brewster will get his chances - Klopp rates him highly , how ready he thinks he is will happen over the summer and depends on the level of funds for players. If we can buy someone in then Brewster will go on loan for a year

      Either way the lad is very good and done right will be a great player for us

      I guess a loan to a prem club next is the plan? As highly rated he is, I can't imagine him getting much game time if he comes back to Liverpool.

      would he really be behind Origi?

      You may have a point,  from what little I've  seen of Brewster he certainly wouldn't be going on loan again.
