      Ovie Ejaria Player Thread (on loan at Rangers)
      Jul 09, 2016 10:36:32 am
      London-born Ejaria, who moved to Merseyside from boyhood club Arsenal in 2014, made an instant impact on Klopp shortly after the manager's arrival last October.

      One of the German's first acts as Liverpool boss was to watch Ejaria score the winner for the under-18s at the Academy in Kirkby.

      “Obviously first impressions are important and it was a great feeling to be able to play in front of him,” said Ejaria.

      “It's exciting because he's new in and everyone is trying to make a first impression on him and trying to get our way up to Melwood. Knowing that he was watching us was a great feeling.”
      Ejaria was also among a group of youngsters who travelled with Klopp and several senior members of the Liverpool squad for warm weather training in Tenerife in March.

      The teenager can play both on the flank and through the middle, and his penchant for hard work and pressing has clearly caught Klopp's attention. - LiverpoolEcho

      Very impressive start for the young man. Hope to see him more involved in the first team as the year goes on.

      I like what I'm seeing, he looks very very comfortable on the ball with an eye for a pass.

      Reading a good many reviews of last nights game and it's scary how many people are hyping this kid up. It was a pre season conditioning game against a non league team and some are saying he's pogba/toure

      Let's calm it down on the lad. Let him come in under the radar and develop with no pressure. Every chance he'll be like plessis as there is Pogba

      Some are a bit OTT :D. I had no idea they were non-league, thought they were league 2.

      Hate overhyping these youngsters too, but this kid looks head and shoulders (literally and metaphorically) above the rest in his age group.

      As you say Brian it's just as likely he could turn out more Plessis than Pogba, but from what I've seen of him in his age group fixtures and also last night, he's got a promising future ahead of him, hopefully he'll continue to improve this year and perhaps this time next year we'll be talking about a potential first team debut.

      He stood out not just because of his size, his movement and quick passing, he had ideas. Tranmere were lunging in all over the place and the tempo was fast enough, they were playing like Wimbledon the scruffy meffs. Pogba wouldn't of stood out as much because he hardly does anything.

      I don't watch as much of the young lads as I should but I've kept an eye on this lad as I seen him on the Liverpool to Euston in January 15. Didn't know who he was but he was in full LFC tracksuit so I had to investigate who he was in the club site.

      Really like him. Cool on the ball, skillful whilst he does the simple passes well. Imagine his build when he's fully developed.

      Hopefully he will continue to progress.

      Kid has great ball control but did tend to disappear from games not unlike Ojo.If he can keep his head in the game there's real potential.

      this lad looks like he is ready now.  I'd start him in midfield alongside Can and Grujic, if we don't bring in any more CMs.

      And please don't start with the "he's too young" bollocks, if you're good enough you're old enough, it's not like he's a child anyway, he'll be 19 in November, we brought in Henderson at 20 and Ejaria is already light years better than him.

      Can't wait to see how he does this season.

      Well if he plays poorly he'll have an excuse; he's got zero league experience.

      What was Henderson's excuse?  He'd already played three league seasons before coming to us.  And he was still rubbish.

      Seriously, you've been coming up with all sorts of ways to bash Henderson since the second he joined. We get that you don't rate him, you don't have to keep going on about it ffs. You was even bashing him when he got 7 goals and 15 assists in the 2014/15 season. 

      It amazes me that you see it as OK that everybody else can have a bad game or season yet Henderson isn't allowed a bad 10 minutes. It's gotten tiresome, bash some f**ker else at least.

      Translating: Ejaria's already better than Henderson but if in this end this bold, attention seeking statement comes out as rubbish (again) I have a ready made excuse. In fact I didn't actually meant what I said, I just said it for effect.

      What is it exactly that you think I said that was so "bold"?

      I said he looks very classy, I think we should start him alongside Can and Grujic if no one else comes in, and I can't wait to see how he does this season.  Is that really "bold"?! 

      You act as if I said "HE WILL WIN THE BALLON D'OR THIS SEASON."  I just said that he's better than our current midfield options of Milner and Henderson.  And that's really not saying much at all, you know that as well as I do.

      That's why you're so clearly such an attention whore: you're backing away from the stuff you've just said and we haven't even left the same thread page. God knows what your opinions on the matter will be in six months. Whatever catches the most attention, probably.

      he'll be 19 in November, we brought in Henderson at 20 and Ejaria is already light years better than him.

      And here I ask you a very direct question: how many times have you watched Ejaria play?

      From the game I saw, this kid is class.

      And like someone just said if you are good enough u are old enough

      How old was Michael Owen when he started, Stevie??? when they made their debut.

      Not saying he is Pogba but if we don't give these youngsters their chance then he could be a Pogba whom we might be willing to part with 100 million quid to get back just because we think he is too young to play.

      Form is temporary Class is permanent, and this lad is a class player along with Woodburn.

      Hope to see more of the lad.
