      I'd like to prove myself at Liverpool too. Doesn't mean I'm good enough

      I've seen a bit more of him live this season for one reason or another (work mainly and my lad loves him. We've seen him 6 times )
      He's not at our level unfortunately

      Not the level we are now or want to be

      I'd imagine we'll sell at his premium this summer and he'll end up at say a Leicester level

      Well you obviously know best Yoda

      Don’t know about Yoda but if Wilson was going to be this great player for us, he’d have at least made our bench already.

      He’s not good enough.

      I did it changed it automatically. Not saying he will start but option for squad player and in games like today someone who can actually pull the trigger from 20 yards may be useful

      You don't think our midfielders can shoot from 20 yards?
      Ask yourself if you think those high quality professional players cant?

      Or do you think it's instruction?

      Think before you react..

      Not sure what it is to be honest maybe it is instruction but I know that there have been times when walking it in isn't working that we should be shooting more just my thoughts especially against sides who retreat to own penalty box at times and space limited to pass our way through

      On Wilson I suspect he isn't really at the level needed and will be sold in the summer. He could stay and take a place in the squad from Lallana but I don't think that will happen.

      Agreed - not seen anything close to suggesting he can make an impact on our first 11.

      Hope he does brilliantly wherever he ends up.

      I highly highly doubt that. Its not just about the first 11, its about squad depth! With such farcical displays in the cup games, he will be one of those called upon and also play against the lesser teams in the league.

      Not only that, we look like losing a bunch of homegrown players.. Sturridge, Clyne, Lallana, Milner? Already lost Ings, Solanke. How do we look like w.r.t. our quota? Do Wilson and Gomez still qualify for the U21 bracket this summer?

      If not, we got Ox, Hendo, Robbo, Wilson, Gomez if the above ones are moved on.. we could get an English #2 as Migs will be sold (Butland? Forster? McCarthy?)

      17 non homegrown - Alisson, Fabinho, Virgil, Gini, Lovren, Keita, Bobby, Mane, Salah, Shaqiri, Matip, Grujic, Werner?, Fekir/Brandt?, Demirbay? Still not 17...

      Man do we need squad depth this summer!!

      Don’t post Fekir’s goal.

      Stop it Fekir! The control, the strike, the resemblance to what Coutinho used to do for us. Oh how we were crying out for something like this vs West Ham!

      If you hadn’t guessed, I’m still not quite over us not signing him.

      I'm with ya mate. Huge mistake not getting him in. Hope he helps us win Back to Back Titles next year.

      I found that Sporting's Bruno Fernandes to LFC click bait pop up frequently, don't mind him if not Fekir in the summer :D

      I have only seen him play 2 or 3 times, and even then I can't remember!!!

      Also, am I the only Brandt fan here?!

      When I've watched Brandt, he seems to have talent but I've never seen him do anything that appeared to justify the hype. And didn't he turn down a transfer to us (or at least stifle interest) because he wouldn't have a guaranteed starting spot?

      Meh, has added more goals to his game but still think he is capable of more. Would be decent back up as a wide man

      Exactly. If he was everything some people are claiming he’d be here so he could be on the bench.

      It's called getting experience rather than sitting on the bench

      Not hard to follow. Klopp has shown he will give chances to those that show promise. The ones that aren’t up to it go on loan. That tells me that right now Wilson isn’t up to it or he’d be here.

      Would he have been offered and signed new contract before he left. Perhaps he isn't sexy enough for some people but i reckon he deserves a chance.

      Think the contract extensions are just value protecting

      I like Harry but having watched him quite closely this season ( again last night) I don't think he's good enough for us

      Is he any worse than Origi?
      Someone who was virtually being pushed out of the door and now seems to be getting regular sub time.

      Personally think he has a higher ceiling as back up winger than Shaq.

      I think Harry will be assessed over pre season and a decision will then be made.

      It's hard to say isn't it? I personally think Origi would get a lot of goals in the championship and hed look a stand out

      Like I say it's nothing personal, I like Harry and when I saw him the first couple of time this season (Brentford and Swansea) he looked very decent but he's not involved very much in overall play, he's kind of a highlights player even at that level

      I think you're possibly right that the final decision may well be made in pre season but I genuinely think with the season he has had that there will be offers on the table that the club will find hard to turn down because of the value and ultimately his level not being quite where we are.

      I'd love to be wrong and I'd love him to make it.. gut feeling is he won't though

      Origi though (slightly separately) I believe from what you hear that his work rate and training levels have forced himself another go.  It again depending on business in during the summer he'll likely be off

      I'd be happy enough if he was in the squad next season and given a chance but not at the expense of signing another quality attacker or two.

      I agree with FL and Kopite that if he really was good enough he'd have taken a place in the squad already.
