      Portuguese youngster joins Academy
      Joao Carlos Teixeira will join Liverpool's Academy after the formalities of his transfer from Sporting Lisbon were completed.

      The 19-year-old Portuguese youth international played and scored against the Reds earlier this season at Anfield in the NexGen series.

      Signing of the window. ;D

      Classy little player, who was a massive loss for Sporting in the Inter game.

      Good luck Joao Carlos, hope you settle in quickly and pick up some first team minutes near the end of the season.

      Every game he's not featured in for Sporting Lisbon, they've lost apparently. So he's a very talented player but he was an integral player.

      Welcome to LFC, Joao!

      Really think this is an exceptional signing for the money and could see him making a big impact in a couple of years.

      Can he play against Spurs tonight or is he banned due to playing for someone else in the competition?

      Welcome Joao.

      Hope he settles in quick and gets involved with the first team squad soon, not a baby at 19 so im hoping he really impresses and forces himself ino Kenny's plans soon.

      Good luck lad.

      So it DID happen then! Good stuff, hope we actually get to see this one and he doesn't just play for the reserves then vanish.

      I concur, I'm already slightly concerned that he's 19, now I don't know about anybody else but that should be the age for people to start breaking in to the first team, so I'd be worried if we don't see him in the first team in the next 12 months or so.

      I've only heard good things about this lad and we got him cheap because of Sporting's financial situation.

      I would not worry about this. Remember Spearing was a late bloomer and he has been really good over the past year.

      One thing I did hear about this lad is that he is still a bit raw and needs some time to make the step up to the first team. He was compared to Lucas when he first arrived at LFC. Lucas turned out okay, well better than okay, so hopefully it will be the same here.

      If we do switch to a 4-1-2-3 in reserves,
      A midfield of Suso and Teixeira with Coady holding would be fantastic.

      And a front three of Silva, Morgan and Sterling. *drools*

      Welcome to the club, but I'm not too excited about this unfortunately. We have signed a lot of ''prospects'' down the year but can you count how many made the first team in the past 5 years? We had Kristen Nemeth destroying the reserve league but never got a chance, Pacheco, Le Tallec and Sinama Pongolle all dubbed to be world class players in the making but none ever made the grade at Liverpool (I still believe if Pongolle was given more chances he would have been quality). I'm not writing Joao Teixeira off, I hope he turns out to be one hell of a player, but I'm not expecting too much of him and won't be surprised IF he doesn't make it at LFC

      Spearing, Kelly, Flanagan, and Jack Robinson have all come in and done a wonderful job for the club in the past few years. I expect more players to come through and get the odd games to show their abilities to the first team squad and to Kenny.

      they are all defensive players !!. Who was the last attacking player made into the first team? Owen?  :mad:

      We didn't buy them, all of those were a product of our academy. My point is none of the youngsters we actually bought from outside made the grade.

      Some miserable bas**rds in here.
      Good man for mentioning Kelly, Spearing, Flanagan and Robinson.

      Shelvey also looks a good player.
      Carlos bought for half the price of Shelvey but was fantastic in the Next Gen Series.

      Looking forward to the next few to come through.
      Be it Carlos, Sterling, Suso or Silva.

      Then some of you can change the f**king record.
