      Benjamin Woodburn Player Thread (on loan at Sheffield United)
      Jul 14, 2016 07:26:12 am





      The 16-year-old attacker from Tattenhall near Chester. Woodburn, who attended Bishop Heber High School in Cheshire before moving to Rainhill High School, is so young that he doesn’t even have a profile under the list of under-21 and under-18 players on the club’s official website. He was fast-tracked from Des Maher’s under-16s squad to the under-18s at the start of the season when he was only 15. Blessed with pace, strength, skill and a lethal eye for goal, it’s no wonder that excitement over what he might go on to achieve is growing. He has also proved his versatility having played anywhere along the front line as well as in an attacking midfield role.

      During pre-season match against Fleetwood Town, Klopp said:

      He’s a natural offensive player. It’s nice to see, really nice to see. I had a long talk to Alex Inglethorpe and sang the big songs about the boys because they trained great and it’s really good to have them around.


      I was searching for his thread.

      From the highlights, he is very offensive and direct player. He runs at the defence like for the 4th goal.

      Took his goal perfectly after a brilliant pass from Kent. Keep it up kid. Sort your hair-cut, you're of TV :D

      He's a footballer, you can just see it when he controls the ball and dribbles. Looks to have a good game intelligence too.

      Great lad.

      Not seen a better attacking prospect since Owen, made more of an impression than Raheem, Ibe or even Ojo all of whom I think were class youngsters ready for the 1st team.

      Hope he follows thru his performances and ends up making it to the first team.

      I bet the club will love it if people started subscribing to LFC TV to watch players like Woodburn and Ejaria next season after what they've done so far in pre-season.

      Great to see another Academy lad coming through and getting us excited! Here's his work against Wigan at the weekend. Quite a little lad and the comparisons with Owen are obvious form the first couple of games but what is impressive is his intelligence and strength playing with his back to goal with lots of 1st/2nd touch sets and passes to bring teammates into the game. Really impressive.

      Mad isn't it mate. So much talent and potential.

      When I was 16 I was wanking myself into a coma.

      11 years later, not much has changed, mind.

      I bet! shame he didn't have long though.

      17 and bags of potential - I can see from this thread that he has already been making waves, can't wait to see more from the lad!

      It's insane the stuff he's been doing in the under-23's at just 16 and now obviously 17.

      League Cup appearance against Leeds? Fingers crossed.

      Really excited that there are encouraging signs coming from the youth academy.

      Great stuff Ben. Congrats on your first Senior game.

      May there be many, many more to come.

      Thought it was quite ironic that there was Stevie sat in the stand for the first time in a long time and this new 17 year old begins his LFC Chapter.

      Made up for him, he got a tremendous reception from the Kop when he came on, he must have felt 10ft tall knowing that Stevie was watching him too  ;D Got a great future this lad.
