      Hope he gets some more minutes tonight.  The more he plays the better he'll get.

      Liverpool FC's Cameron Brannagan says Fleetwood is MASSIVE for him.

      Liverpool midfielder desperate to make an impression Jürgen Klopp in pre-season.

      IT might be a low-key pre-season friendly at a 5,327 capacity League One Stadium, but for Liverpool midfielder Cameron Brannagan tonight’s trip to Fleetwood FC is “massive.”

      The 20-year-old made nine senior appearances last season - eight of them under Jürgen Klopp - and was handed his full Premier League debut in the last match of the league campaign at West Bromwich Albion.

      And he is keen to catch Klopp’s eye again in pre-season.

      “Hopefully I can work my hardest in the games and in training and try to prove what I’m about. The gaffer is watching and I might get a chance this year,” he told liverpoolfc.com.

      Brannagan was named in the starting XI for Friday’s opening friendly at Tranmere Rovers and is hoping for more exposure at the League One side tonight.

      “There are a few lads up here this year, some of the younger lads are here, the older bunch as well and some of the players who were out on loan,” he added.  Everyone is dying to impress the manager; he is the new manager and everyone is keen to get going.  You can see that in training with everyone working so hard, especially with the running we’re doing – everyone is running their socks off.  To get fit and to be able to play to your best potential, that’s what you need to do.  Being fit helps you do that, especially at the end of games when it’s hard and you can dig out a result.  It’s always good to show the manager at that time that you’re still ready to go.”

      So far Brannagan has not been allowed to leave the Reds and gain experience on loan, but he is open to the prospect.

      “I’m only a young lad and loans are a big thing at my age – going out and experiencing what it’s like to play,” he said.  I don’t really know what I’ll be doing yet; I’ll speak to the gaffer about it in my own time and when the gaffer wants to speak to me, I’m happy to talk about it.  But I’m just going to keep training and working hard, and when the games come try to impress the manager as much as I can.  That’s my aim this year – train hard and work hard and see where it takes me.”

      Thought he did well in  making himself available, linking defense and attack and overall positioning. Played a lot of simple balls and a couple of efforts didn't come off, but I thought acquitted himself quite well on the night against admittedly not very good opposition in the 2nd half.

      Really like the look of this lad.

      Could show some of the more "senior" lads how to take set pieces.

      We have a couple of fellas that might be ready this season and same for next...I am sure the gaffer is looking at that very closely and its great to see the emphasis being placed with Linders and his developmental group.

      When he came on last night I thought he read the game very well. Kept dropping almost behind the back line to get the ball and sort out the problems the defenders had with building any attacking. Only then did we start to see Coutinho get some opportunities with the ball in the forward third (complemented Henderson as well). I realize he's likely to leave on loan to get regular first team football, but I hope it's with a Premiership side because he is definitely good enough for that.

      I'm not sure he will Rob.  Wigan wanted him and Jürgen said he was staying put although if a PL club comes in for him it might be different.

      I get the feeling he likes him and wants to develop him in house.

      Agree about Klopp liking him. Whatever is best in the long run for Brannagan as an LFC player.

      I like this clause, it gives the club an indication of how serious other clubs are of adding the player to their squad. I'd like for us to never go through an Ojo experience again where he's sat on the bench for some guy that struggles to cross a ball properly.

      Good loan for him that.  Chasing promotion and working with a very good manager who did wonders when at Bradford City.

      Not sure how much game time he'll get as looking at their squad they're pretty stacked with midfielders, most of whom have played around 20 games already this season.

      Hope it works for him. Still like him very much as a player, but one thing he's never going to be is big. Of course, if we keep picking up injuries, Jürgen may have no choice but to keep him.

      That's true mate but Cou isn't exactly a giant, neither is Mane or Lallana.  I know he doesn't have their skill set yet but I still have hope that he can develop into the Lallana role if any. 

      He's two footed, good in tight spaces, a good passer, has an excellent dead ball delivery and scores his fair share of goals.  It'll take a couple of years at least to displace him so it depends if he's prepared to wait but he'll still be quite young at 22/23.

      I like Brannagan but he is same age as Can?.......Older than Grujic and Origi he really needs to kick on now.

      He was 20 in May so about 3 weeks younger than Grujic and 13 months younger than Origi. 

      His size is what's held him back compared to the other 2 mate, especially for the PL he's considered too lightweight so needs to wait for his body to strengthen naturally as it matures.  It'll do him good getting half a season in the rough and tumble of League 1, that's what he needs to do now, learn how to handle himself at pro level against seasoned pros, his talent will do the rest.

      Edit - just realised I confused you with the 22/23 age.  I meant he'll be that age before he's displacing Lallana if he hangs around that long but that would be a great age to be doing it as he's still young enough to develop further.

      Sorry to hear Cameron is out injured for 3-4 weeks. Hopefully he will recover in time to make the loan move.

      I see he's back after Fleetwood Town were eliminated from the promotion playoffs, and is credited with being a top player in a friendly win over Mansfield.

      I think he's off this summer, however.
