      Playing at center forward today with the U19s.

      Wondering if maybe he has leveled off a bit this season. Hope not.

      He was wicked ill a few weeks back,question whether he should of been playing at all.He didn't look up for it and it was him that turned his back on their equalizer.

      What is going on with Woodburn? He is not getting 10 minutes when we are 2 nill up.
      Solanke has not taken his chance but Woodburn is behind Solanke right now.
      We have West Brom next, if we are leading and Woodburn doesn't even get 10 minutes I am not sure what it means for him in the future. He is unlikely to get minutes next season unless Carling Cup. Usually players who go out on loan don't make it here.

      He was on the bench against City too I think, might have been the game between City games if not.

      I don't think he was on the bench for either City game or the Derby.

      http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/43632218

      Against City

      1 Karius
      66 Alexander-Arnold Booked at 29 mins Substituted for Clyne at 81'minutes
      6 Lovren
      4 van DijkBooked at 65mins
      26 Robertson
      21 Oxlade-Chamberlain
      5 Wijnaldum
      7 Milner
      11 Salah Substituted for Ings at 89'minutes
      9 Firmino Booked at 35 mins Substituted for Klavan at 81'minutes
      19 Mané Booked at 14 mins

      Substitutes

      2 Clyne
      17 Klavan
      18 Moreno
      22 Mignolet
      28 Ings
      29 Solanke
      58 Woodburn


      You can see he was on the bench in the second leg against City.
      I knew he was on the bench for the Derby or City game, I just couldn't remember which so I spoke factual.
      You on the other hand, clouded facts with incorrect assumptions. Please be a bit more careful before dismissing things.

      Really like Woodburn, but do you guys think our style of football suits him? I don't :(  I am actually surprised he was ahead of Wilson last couple of years as Wilson is more a Klopp type player.

      I wonder if he has a future under Klopp? Given our injury troubles it baffles me a bit that hasn't had one mi ute of senior football over the last 2 months. It's a shame because he showed more in this two appearances for Wales last September than Solanke has shown all season.

      I'm also confused by it, can he really be worse than Solanke, is that even f**king possible?? Klopp clearly doesn't like him for whatever reason so if I was him I'd be looking for a move away.

      I figure with Ox and Lallana out he would see some minutes but Klopp preferred TAA playing in the attack CM role then giving Woodburn a shot, which is odd considering he kept him at the club because with Phil being sold he didn't want to be left short options yet doesn't seem interested in using him at all.

      He certainly needs a season long loan somewhere.
      Has to start playing in competitive games in order to develop.
      Been impressed by his bulking up
      Looks pretty impressive.

      He was unlucky to at the tail end of last season to be hurt when he could of featured in a few Premiership games while our focus was on the UCL but it good move for him to get some playing time under his belt to help his development. Looking forward to see what he can do at the Championship level

      a loan and some meat and potatoes can only be good for him. He needs playing time and grow into his body.

      Blades not too far away from play offs last year.

      Wales international goalscorer so I assume he will get plenty of game time.  No idea what system they play but I assume Klopp prefers it to Steve Bruce's brand?

      Yea, Jürgen does seem to be picky as to where these lads go on loan.

      Every weekend I usually flick through Livescores' app to see how our loan players get on.

      Sadly, like today, it seems young Ben is usually an unused substitute. What a waste of time for him and us. Should recall him and tell Sheffield United to do one in future.

      I watched one of their live games recently as well. They're sh*te. Might as well have sent him to Stevie.

      In most cases I agee. Liverpool have said in the past that they won't loan to teams who miss treat our players. Celtic found that out last window. Our players are getting a chance at Rangers. I think that should be the go to place for talent like Woodburn.

      Couple of things they're 4th at the moment can't be that sh*t and if they are says more about Woodburn not being able to fight his way into the team,no? If he's good enough they'll play him.

      Have you watched them play? They're average Championship material that'll be up and down all season. No where near Premier League quality.

      If you want to say that Woodburn isn't any better than other bench players in the Championship I'll be very surprised. Have you not seen him play either?

      I'm saying if Woodburn is good he'll play,the Sheffield manager isn't gonna bench him outta spite.He shouldn't get a start cos he's a Liverpool player.I've only watched him on dodgy streams for our ressies/ u-18's,i know he was sick/injured but not setting the world on fire since.

      At least we could play him in the reserves, give him some focussed coaching. There is no point loaning a player out if he doesn't get games.

      Realistically he will probably never make the grade here. Don't want to rule out a young kid but its very difficult.

      Most of our young players that have made it here in the recent past have been defenders. We have one of the best attacks in world football so you have to be extremely special to break in here now.

      An 18 year old Michael Owen might struggle. He would give it a good go obviously but that is the level we are at now.
