      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.

      Hope this guy isn't like all the other prospects we've signed who never made the first team.

      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.

      Absolutely, these kids come into the academy and we have to give them time to develop, you only need one every so often to come through to make it worthwhile.

      We have reportedly paid 850k for this kid, even of it doesn't work out its worth that gamble, if it does and he becomes the player they think he has the potential to then it could save us millions in the future and the annoyance of missing out.

      Welcome on board kid.

      Hopefully you will reach the obvious potential you have.

      For christ sake reds lets not A) Expect too much too soon from a kid in a new country and a diffrent style of football and B) Not lose the plot if Kenny decides hes not ready yet. Bit of patience

      Liverpool secured the exciting capture of Portugal U19 international Joao Carlos Teixeira from Sporting Lisbon in February 2012.

      The midfield playmaker has already scored in front of the Kop against the Reds in the NextGen Series, and he was a pivotal performer for Sporting in the two group games.

      Teixeira will start life with the Reds in Rodolfo Borrell's reserve team squad and will be based at the Academy.

      His style has been compared to legendary Portugese ace Deco, and he came through the renowed Sporting Lisbon Academy.

      His performances in the NextGen Series saw him train with the Sporting Lisbon first team squad, before a move to Merseyside came about.

      He is very much seen as a player for the future and Liverpool are delighted to have him on board.

      Has this lad still not played for us yet? Back injury?

      He's 19 now, don't think he qualifies to play as it is the U-19 European Championship. Correct me if I'm wrong or if there's a rule in there somewhere, but I think all players have to be under 19 years of age.

      And I'm pretty sure he's training.

      Players born after 1 January 1993 will be eligible to participate in this competition.

      Seems to depend when you turned 19.

      Ah that makes more sense then. So he is eligible to play then, I'm curious as to why he's not there. Maybe he was injured when the squad was selected?

      Born on 18 Jan 1993, so he's eligible. Can't find him in the Portugal squad, though. Not called up?
