      how smart is it though to have these players basically do a full apprenticeship without having the pressure on them and like every player coming through the doors at Melwood or Kirkby only the strong survive. I watch young Harry Wilson and I see a young Mo not quite yet physically there but getting there in another season or so he will be a player .

      Absolutely agree mate. 

      Our focus at the Academy has been transformed in recent years as there is now a "how do we give these lads the best opportunities to get into the 1st team" approach rather than coach them till they're 20ish and sell them on or release them.

      Watching the u18s is like watching the 1sts.  The patterns of play are there, the mentality is there, the skill and technique is there.  They step up to the 23s or down to the 16s its exactly the same.  Its brilliant!

      that's the difference I am a fan not a critic like some.
      Marcus Rashford has scored 31 goals in the last 2.5 season Mo has 64 in the same period yet Rashford is UTD's main man he simply wouldn't get in our team he is 22 Brewster 19. People are not discussing Brewster on knowledge of seeing him live or watching him for the U23's. I don't need to engage and change anybody's mind your free to say and think what you like but most of these posts on the young lads are ignorant and lazy. Its the casual throw away remarks about him that are quite pathetic pure emotional response and not based in fact at all. I have seen enough of these lads on LFCTV over the years to know how good they are and how well they are being brought on through loaning them out so they can learn.
      If that makes me a superfan then its hardly an insult is it.

      Again, if you find that Brewster in particular is going to make it, it's all nice and good, and I hope you're right. But pretty much from your posts all I can get is that you're simply defending every single young player from criticism and suggesting that whoever doesn't do the same is a lesser supporter, which is more than just lazy, it's arrogant. Even in your praise of them you're extremely generic, that you've "seen enough" to know "how good they are". Well, the youth team can be brilliant at their age group and still nearly all of them won't make it at the LFC, that's just the harsh reality of football in the top level. I find that the emotional response here really is seeing as an insult when people think a certain young player may not be up to the task when it's just what the forum is about.

      this is boring you seem to think people have a right to criticise but not be criticised what people "think" isn't the reality or factually correct I can think given a bit of luck I could have played for Liverpool the reality is I wasn't good enough to be a ball boy. You carry on believing its ok to right off their chance of playing for Liverpool based on nothing more than feeling and I will carry on believing if they work hard and listen to their managers they have a chance like I say I am a Fan/supporter not a critic. Its just taken Joe Gomez 12 months to get back to full fitness and form after a much lesser injury than Rhian who spent over a year out which simply seems to be ignored by people when assessing his progress.

      And that's your arrogance right there, you assume that I am basing my opinion on feeling and it doesn't even occur to you that you're not the only person who watches the bloody team.

      I do also believe that if young players work hard they have chance, but that chance is slim nonetheless, just look at how many academy players have become regulars at LFC over the years and you'll see that reality doesn't always agree with wishful thinking.

      I happen to think that, in the case of Brewster, with his development being hampered by injury and the extremely high level of the first team, he's unlikely to become a first team regular. That's a specific assessment of a specific player, if you disagree that's fine, doesn't mean I want him or would be happy to see him fail as you have suggested.

      At the time did you think Solanke would be one of our main strikers yes or no, how about Ibe? I'm not sure you answered that question. And this crap about they play for Bournemouth who are in the prem therefore by extension they must be amazing players is ludicrous. Of course its easier to get into a sh*t team than it is a top team, I would have thought that is fairly bloody obvious!

      You and banana are either being deliberately argumentative or you are idiots, I can't quite work out which it is but I suspect its the former.


      And you are nothing but a troll pr**k pal


      Bournemouth are not a “sh*t” team ffs - have some perspective you tw*t

      just for a minute try and use your brain. Try to see how Jürgen has developed players rather than buy them. Jürgen plans ahead I don't know how far ahead but go and read what he says about Rhian Brewster we could have sold him and Harry but Jürgen has plans for them that may or may not work out in two or three seasons time . Why don't you tell us all who will be in the team in place of our front three and how much they would cost to replace them. Jürgen has been here for 5 years its as if some people don't really understand his philosophy . If some one comes available that is a perfect fit then yes he will be in for them but Strikers are the hardest players to recruit just ask Maureen at the moment

      So did Klopp develop Virgil, how about Allison or Robertson, Sadio, Salah, Keita, Minamino....   Look it is wonderful to have young people come through the ranks, I already mentioned that but if you can't there is a transfer market. As for who we could buy for the front three, my wish would be for Mbappe, perhaps Timo Werner, plus we have Minamino. I also wouldn't mind Haaland in a few years time if he continues to develop and perform at a high level. I'm sure there are many other out there as well.

      Your fixation on Brewster as our only forward option for the future is bordering on the bizarre now

      Do you even know what a troll poster is, its certainly not someone who just happens to disagree with you and argues their case, like I do. It could be argued that someone who just hurls abuse in response is more the troll!

      It is true that most Academy players, at all academies, don't make it with the first team.

      Brewster still has that chance. Time will tell.

      yes but we are talking about breaking into a superb Liverpool team, th ebest team on the planet, that is quite a daunting challenge right now for a senior player let alone an academy player.

      My point really is that people are saying Brewster will be at another club in a couple of years.
      Even if he is, and it might by PL or Championship, it's not a failure.

      LFC has finally returned to producing top talent from its academy.
      That can only be a good thing.
      Those that make it, like Trent, improve the 1st team squad.
      Those who leave can have a good career and boost transfer funds in the process.

      100% agree, the vast majority of the lads coming out of our academy will have good careers some where, and even if they don't make it with us then as in the case of Ibe and Solanke they make the club a very nice profit so its all good.

      All true statements.

      My opinion, and it is an opinion, is that Rhian has a better chance of sticking here than most.

      Every touch including the goal from Rhian's second game for Swansea.

      Based on the clips
      - The Swans must love him already given the amount of running and closing down he is doing, looks like he ran himself into the ground in this game
      - There are 4-5 bits of lovely skill. The goal itself, plus a couple of nice flicks to play in runners, a sharp turn in the box with a shot going just over the bar.
      - He's a good header of the ball, gets up and competes, won most of them against bigger more experienced players
      - Looks to be rediscovering his touch and fitness. Will be really interesting to see how he develops during his time there.

      Not afraid to put himself about either, always a bit of a worry after a major injury.

      Nice clip.

      Nice video that was a solid performance hope he he does well.  Like mentioned by other posters he has come from a long injury will need time.   His couple of games in the Cup were very average.  Elliot and Jones looked much better, but they will have good and bad patches it is part of development.   The Bar is very high in our team.  Still young and has a lot of potential.

      its such a small number that make it not sure of the odds but probably runs in to the hundreds who fail for everyone that does get into the team. Jürgen seems to like him and if he didn't have so many injuries he would have had more game time but with all these lads time will tell.
