      Like I've said before, watching the youth football gives hope when the first team were dire.

      Yep, it's been one of highlights of the last 3 seasons.  Something to give me hope that all's not entirely lost.

      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."

      @Kristian_Walsh

      Trying to think of how to put this without sounding wrong, but failing: impressed by Jordon Ibe's physique, particularly his posterior.
      @dowie81

      @Kristian_Walsh Let's hope this doesn't inspire a 'I see you Ibe, shaking that ass' chant

      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:

      Thought he had a good debut. Just wish he would have put his foot through the ball and take a shot when he had even the slightest opportunity because in the under-21's that is exactly what he would do.

      He really was great, wasn't he?  Just watched the match again, looked really good, some nice interplay with Coutinho, looks to be a lot more physically ready than Sterling did.  Another year for both of them, I hope that is enough to convince Rodgers not to pull the trigger on Ince.

      He looked like a less explosive player than Raheem Sterling but tactically smarter, not running into dead ends too often, passing the ball well and tracking back quite a lot.

      I'm generalizing from only one game though, since I don't watch the reserves or youth sides. And it was only QPR, after all.

      Anyway, I was really happy he got his first game and he should be proud of his performance. Hope to see him in the 1st team again in the near future.

      Has the potential to be a game changer in about two years. He has the ability to score goals,rate him higher than sterling. Hope he can get some games in preseaon fixtures. Will be wayching his progress down the road.

      I said in the match thread that if I had to bet I think Jordon will progress past Sterling in time. While I most certainly wouldn't bet my life on that I am relishing them competing for first team minutes and feel that such competition (including Sinclair) will push one of them into being a world class talent.

      It can only be a good thing having these young players competing with each other for places as well as the more senior players ahead of them.

      Can only progress their game.
