      Kid just signed a new two year deal. I haven't seen much of him, saw some highlights from a game the other day. Doesn't look like he'd be much of a dropoff from Brad Jones  :f_tongueincheek:

      He's apparently saved a penalty for Swindon today, great confidence booster for the lad if it's true.

      He was superb against us in preseason. Hope he can keep developing.

      He's blown his loan deal at Swindon...

      Liverpool goalkeeper Lawrence Vigouroux has Swindon loan spell cut short after paying £50 fine in pennies

      Liverpool goalkeeper Lawrence Vigouroux has been sent back from a loan spell at Swindon Town after turning up late for training and then paying his £50 fine in pennies.

      The 21-year-old signed for Liverpool from Tottenham last year and had been doing well for League One Swindon after being sent out by Brendan Rodgers to gain experience on a season’s loan.

      However, after turning up late for training last week, Vigouroux was told he would be fined £150.

      Senior players had the fine reduced to £50 in a bid to help the young Chilean, but Sportsmail understands he then turned up to pay with bank bags full of pennies.

      Swindon manager Cooper is already working with a small squad and is keen to ensure that discipline is maintained. Manager Mark Cooper would only confirm: ‘It’s an internal disciplinary matter. It’s come from me and the rest of the players.’ Asked if it would cause further issues, he added: ‘It won’t, it’s been dealt with.’

      Vigouroux eventually paid the original fine of £150 — this time in notes.

      He was dropped to the bench for last Saturday’s 2-1 home loss to Colchester and replaced by Ty Belford who, as their only senior goalkeeper, is likely to start at Doncaster tonight.

      Struggling Swindon have slipped to 17th and their striker Wes Thomas has been ruled out for a month with a hamstring injury.

      Is it really such a bad thing? If he was being deliberately cuntish, then maybe aye, but he still turned up with the money, no matter what kind of coins he brought, it was still £50. Bank would have taken it no matter what form it was in. ;D

      Not really something to cancel a loan over. Unless his attitude has been poor anyway.

      I don't think it's anything to cancel a loan over but it would irritate me a little if a professional footballer came to me with a load of copper to pay a fine that the player could pay with spare notes in his wallet. With the way some clubs are these days it's best to act professional at all times and it seems he may have been a bit of a dick after being fined.

      SWINDON LOANEE BACK

      Liverpool goalkeeper Lawrence Vigouroux has returned to League One side Swindon Town on loan after apologising for paying a fine with 5,000 one pence pieces.

      The 21-year-old had been sent back to Anfield on Monday after he used the coins to pay his fine for turning up late to training.

      Vigouroux has played nine games for Swindon after joining them on a season-long loan and could now be picked for Saturday's game at Blackpool.

      Good bit of business from the Academy again.  Best of luck at Swindon Lawrence.

      BBC Wiltshire also understands that Swindon have agreed a deal worth about £400,000 to sign Lawrence Vigouroux.

      The Chilean goalkeeper made 36 appearances while on loan at Swindon from Liverpool in 2015-16.

      Vigouroux, 22, was a regular in the Wiltshire club's starting side before suffering an injury in March.

      Is the academy's job to turn a profit on selling kids on, or to produce an occasional first team player? Serious question.

      It's just that I remember those heady days when we produced Michael Owen, Steven Gerrard, Robbie Fowler, Jamie Carragher and the like and wonder why it doesn't seem to happen any more.

      It's both mate.

      Let's face it not many make it to the level of the players you mentioned, so all good in making a profit on those we ship out.

      I suppose Raheem has been the best we have nurtured recently and probably too soon to judge on Ibe, Brannagan and Ojo.

      Agreed mate and I think the job of nurturing local talent, or any talent, has been made more difficult now there isn't "reserve" football but instead having just "youth" football.

      It's difficult enough to get them through but when they have little or no experience of playing against other pro footballers, the difference and how much they have to adapt to it plus how little time they get to do so is huge.
