      How good was Jordon today?! He didn't look the least bit phased to make his Premier League debut at Anfield. He was unafraid and he wasn't over-awed by the occasion. I loved the way he wanted the ball, and when he got it, he took his man on. I know a lot rate Ibe higher than Sterling, but does it matter? We have two dynamite wingers waiting to become something big for us! Great performance by Jordon. Very professional.

      Yes, very impressive today and that was a memorable debut.

      Good debut for the lad.  Nice move by Rodgers playing him today; all eyes were on Carra so there was no pressure on him.

      Got all the right tools, phyisically, to make it, just needs to make sure he's got the mental ability to as well.

      Don't let the attention he's bound to get go to his head, don't get above himself. Just keep his feet grounded and remember that he can always improve. Once you start thinking you've got it made, you realise you haven't.

      Also with any luck we won't have to pin all our hopes on him just yet like we had to with Raheem. I think that was one of the problems with Sterling, the expectation was too high for a lad of his age. Jordan will be allowed to develop into the team more gradually like younger players should and then get the sustained run when he's actually ready for it.

      That's a good point.
      I do think we saw Sterling and Suso suffer burn out for the reliance on them in the squad at the start of the season.

      The arrival of Sturridge and Coutinho has taken the load of them now. Having them in the squad to be utilised in the right
      way is fantastic. It can only be a bonus to have Sterling and Ibe pushing each other along to get into the team.

      I'm looking forward to seeing how this plays out.

      His progress this season was maybe the most promising thing of the year. He has been in full gear for about 5 months now and hasn't looked back. Real prospect we've got.

      Wasn't TOO surprised he made an impact tbh.Watching him in the ressies + academy this season has been a joy.
      Well done Jordon.

      As said, handled the occasion very well. Look to take the full back on at every opportunity, going on to his left or right foot. Set up Coutinho's goal. All in all, good performance from the lad.

       I was very impressed with this lad,he has got a good football brain and can beat a man,and the speed he got back in defence to take the ball off the Q.P.R. man was electric.I see only good for this young lad.

      17. Watched on a stream so had to watch the LFC midnight replay.
      Thought he was excellent.
      Pace.
      Hunger.
      Workrate.

      Long may it continue.
      Even tracked back to get LFC out of a 2v2 at one point, against Granero.

      There have been so many times in the past when we've looked at the kids coming through and got all excited because of the hype around them, only for them never to make an impact (Nemeth, Pacheco et al).
      The more I see of the youngsters we have now, though, I'm convinced that our first team will soon be bolstered by some top class players coming through, not least Wisdom, Sinclair, McLaughlin and this lad, Ibe. It's just a case of taking it steady with them and avoiding too much hype and burnout.
      We need to buy some top level players to push for fourth but long-term, the likes of Ibe could save us millions.

      That's the thing though, summed up in your player selection, we've not had this many players coming through in decades.
      In the past we pinned all our hopes on Nemeth and pacheco because there wasn't any other likely candidate.

      Look at it now though.

      We would like Kelly to make it, if he doesn't there is a good chance Wisdom will.
      We would like Sterling or Suso to make it, if they don't we can see the likes of Ibe and, for me, Yesil.

      Then there's Shelvey, Coady, Flanagan, Robinson, who may or may not make it.
      Adorjan, who might have made it if he had any pace,
      but can't get in to the number 10 role because Suarez and now Coutinho have monstered it.

      We have some players that might have got a look in this season had injuries not cruely robbed them in the second half of the season.
      Yesil was coming into his own. Smith and Pelosi were showing promise and Teixeira has been wrapped in cotton wool.

      I'm almost afraid to jinx it, but the next few years could be exciting.
      We just need to keep the recruitment up.

      I was being lazy, haha. Agree with your point though, we have a far greater depth of talent at that level now. I'm also very excited by Yesil, I just hope he can put this injury behind him and get back to it.

      Horrible injury to get at a young age.
      Thought he would have been the difference for us in the NextGen.

      Very exciting times Racer. 

      Give it another 2 or 3 seasons for these players to gain experience and flourish at their natural pace and we could have an amazing squad.

      I hope that a few of the lads get sent out on Loan (i.e Coady, McLaughlin etc.) otherwise they may not have the necessary challenges to progress to the next level. You just have to look at Cleverly (watford and wigan), Sturridge (bolton), Wilshere (bolton), Welbeck (sunderland), Lukaku (west brom) etc. Like these players or not they had a season or two away from the club and came back as contenders for the first team. (lukaku is a prediction).

      My main point is that i think out loan policy is a bit of a shambles and we need to step it up to give these players opportunities. Just look at Ngoo at hearts; he's been class. A few others need to get this sort of experience to push on and challenge for the first team.

      Definitely we need to send a few of the U21s out on loan.
      Morgan, Adorjan, Robinson, Flanagan. Even Shelvey and Suso could all benefit from it.
      Like you said, look at Ngoo at Hearts.

      I think it'll be one of the things that Brian and Rodolfo will have been looking at mate.  I agree we haven't utilised the loan system as effectively as other Clubs have but those lads need the opportunity to continue their development.

      Our issue will be the size of the squads at all levels. 

      We've had a lot of U18's playing at U21's level and U16's playing at U18's this season to make up numbers.  Some of them have had to play 2 games a week and that's not something that can be sustained at their age.

      Ibe's delight at Anfield debut
      20th May 2013 - Latest News

         
      Liverpool debutant Jordon Ibe declared himself 'over the moon' after making his first senior Reds appearance during the 1-0 victory over Queens Park Rangers on Sunday.

      The 17-year-old, who has impressed in the club's youth sides throughout 2012-13, featured for 63 minutes against the London outfit and created the winning goal for Philippe Coutinho.

      "I feel over the moon to be playing at Liverpool in such an important match, especially Carragher's last match," he told LFC TV after the win.

      "I found out I was in the squad yesterday but I wasn't too sure if I was going to start. Brendan told me to be prepared. Yesterday evening and this morning I was just focused and calm.

      "I thought I did okay, especially getting an assist for Coutinho's goal and helping the club win three points. The manager told me that I did well, I just need to keep pressing and stay compact."

      Having completed the campaign with a landmark moment, how much is the energetic and enthusiastic wide-man looking forward to progressing further next season?

      The No.44 added: "I feel very confident because now I've played here, I've got a little bit of experience so I know what it takes to play here. Hopefully I can build on that and take it into the new season."

      Really impressed me, his work rate and hunger in the game was a good sight to see! Especially when he pretty much sprinted all the way back and won the ball back for us when QPR were on the break! Wasn't always successful at beating his man but he done well, be good to see him get a good run out next season.

      Handy debut, could tell he was proper nervous in the first few minutes but he settled down and played a good part in the goal. And he probably saved us a goal with his tracking back so well in Jordan lad.

      I felt so proud when he got a standing ovation from the whole ground when he went off, he did extremely well and took it all in his stride, what a day for him, well done Jordan, keep working hard, keep your feet on the ground and never stop trying, the Kop will love you for that  :scarf:
