He'll be class. We really have many good young wingers who'll and can be 1 of the best wingers in the world in the future. Sterling, Ibe, Ojo, Markovic, Sinclair and Teixera!
Not the right thread, but I will be stunned if Teixera makes it with us. He's only a bit younger than Borini was when he went on loan to Sunderland for starters. Or nine months younger than Coutinho is now. At 22 they should be pushing for a first team place, or at the very least be getting a loan in the premier league or a strong championship team. He is a creative midfielder, who unlike defenders, flourish young so he hasn't got much more time.
He's also only playing as a squad member for a pretty weak championship team. He's done alright; 3 goals and 4 assists in all competitions, but that's not hugely impressive for a 22 year old who is hoping not just to step up a league, but to go to one of the strongest teams in the league above. There are plenty of 22 year old players in the championship, not only doing as well as that, but also much better. If I saw him play not knowing he was a Liverpool player, my first thought would not be "He looks like a prospect", but rather "a slightly above average championship player". In fact, I probably wouldn't notice him.
Finally, his position is one of the most contested in our squad. Not only do we have our established talents vying for attacking midfield positions, but also it is where the bulk of our emerging talent lies. Even Luis Alberto, who is of quite a similar age, has a better chance here. He has a diminished role in his team relative to Teixera, but is looking decentish for team which is pushing for Europe rather than one fighting relegation from the championship.
I hope I'm wrong of course, but it doesn't look good for Portuguese Joe
