      Sheyi is now in the top 10 players for goals and assists in the Championship based on minutes played.  Not bad for 17 years old but I don't think he'll go on loan next season, there's an interview with Malky saying Brendan intends bringing him into the 1st team squad in the summer.

      Can you remember where you saw that Debs? I wouldn't mind a gander.

      Personally, I'd rather Brendan bringing along and furthering the development of Wilson. With the recent photographs of him training with the 1st team, that's probably the intention anyway but, IMO he is not as raw as Ojo, he knows where the back of the net is and moreover, it's not as though we're short of options on the right.

      Tex's case is slightly different to most young players though mate.  He lost nearly 2 years of his development at a crucial age due to a serious back injury which nearly ended his career.  I'm sure he'll be given a bit more patience than others have been.

      His underlying numbers are pretty good for his first proper season at pro level and for minutes played I believe he's in the top 5 for goals and assists in the Championship.

      Sorry for the off topic comment folks.

      Unfortunately you can't buy back that time. Playing whilst one is developing is crucial. We can't look at him like he is two years younger - he isn't going to have an extra two years of development. He might be able to salvage a professional footballing career - something that many sadly fail to do after a long layoff whilst young, but there is no evidence to suggest that players who are injured young develop later - the opposite in fact.

      The bold is so far off being accurate, I have no idea where you got that from.
      He is not in the top 5 for either. He is 78th in the championship for goals, and 56th for Assists, with many, many younger players (many below the age of 20) occupying the spaces in between. His underlying numbers are ok, but not great - certainly nowhere near encouraging. He completes a large amount of dribbles which is promising (top 5 in the championship), and a decent amount of key passes (top 30), but not much else. He is the second most dispossessed player in the entire league and is high up there for ball losses caused by a bad touch.
      He will be a decent Championship player, probably for a yo-yo team, but there is nothing to indicate anything more than that

      EDIT: Perhaps any replies to this should go in the Tex thread. Don't want to fill the Ojo thread up with off topic stuff

      It was his pre or post match interview I think mate but both Beale and Inglethorpe have said that his target for next season is a permanent move to Melwood so they're clearly planning a route into the 1st team for him.

      Sheyi Ojo was given WIGAN man of the match last night, albeit a 3-0 loss.

      seems like yet again another exciting attacking player we are knocking them out at the moment all these players could save us a fortune if given a chance under BR. all depends on if they take that chance like Sterling and Ibe so far two of the most exciting british players knocking about.

      Congrats to Sheji on his goal. Had a bit of luck for going in but it still was a powerfull voley.
      Great it turned up to be a winning goal.
      Hope it builds up his confidence.
      Lad can become a very exciting player.
      My favourite young talent Liverpool got at the moment besides Ibe.

      speaking of young/academy kids, does anyone remember the name of the striker we sent on loan to Hearts a couple of seasons ago?  tall, skinny, black lad---looked but I can't find him and don't remember his name.  Is he still with us or did we get rid of him?

      It seems he fits into the category whereby the really big lads stand out at youth level but when they get to senior football their ability is found wanting against developed players.

      Why? He'll get football at a decent level in a decent team rather than for our under 21s. He'll barely get any minutes for our senior team this season so it makes sense.

      I see what you was getting at but I think a lot of Championship football is better than very few minutes in the Europa League.

      New Reds deal and loan switch for Ojo

      Sheyi Ojo has today signed a new long-term contract with Liverpool – and also joined Wolverhampton Wanderers on a youth loan until the end of the season.

      The 18-year-old, who scored the winner in Sunday's 2-1 friendly victory at Swindon Town, has committed his future to the Reds by putting pen to paper on the deal.

      He'll spend 2015-16 on loan at Wolves to gain some first-team experience with the Championship side.

      Ojo joined Liverpool from MK Dons in 2011 and was named as a substitute for the first team in their Premier League matches at Leicester City and Burnley last season before a loan stint with Wigan Athletic.

      The forward figured for the Reds during their summer tour of Thailand, Australia and Malaysia. http://www.liverpoolfc.com/news/latest-news/190040-new-reds-deal-and-loan-switch-for-ojo
