      Same mate. There were some really good performances tonight, especially from some of the younger lads.

      Do you think it's harder for a kid to become  a first-team regular today, than it was when Macca, Fowler, Owen broke into the team?

      It's always nice to play at Tranmere and so it proved again tonight. Great club, great stadium - but then again we would expect that for Merseyside's second biggest club.

      Thought all the lads looked lively tonight bar Markovic who looked like he just got off a plane.

      Probably the most impressive first preseason game I've seen us play.

      Once we put Van Dijk and Keite in to the team we'll be a considerable force 8)

      Very happy that preseason has started and that I can see the lads play again! Great to see our captain back on the pitch and hopefully Sturridge is able to have a proper preseason with the squad.

      First half:

      Lots and lots of wing play which left Wijnaldum and Grujic looking a bit lost in the middle. Both were picking up good positions between the lines and making good runs into the box though. I really like the look of Grujic, he has a good football brain. Good movement and runs, strong lad and an eye for goal, those are the things you look for in an attacking-minded midfielder.

      Trent-Alexander Arnold also seems to have spent a bit of time in the gym, he looked quite a bit bigger than I remember him from last season, certainly has put in the hard work in the offseason. Quite surprising to see him in the first half line-up along with the other first team players. A subtle warning for Clyne there from the gaffer? Let's hope he ups his game.

      I also really hope we keep hold of Lucas for another season. He can be a very useful player in some games and distributed the ball well again.

      Second half:

      A great display by some of the younger players, Woodburn and Kent in particular. I love the way they run at players and do their thing. Solanke looked pretty good too, he has quite quick feet for such a tall lad and he has good movement in the box. Looking forward to see more of him.

      Other than that, as one of the commentators said about Markovic, I feel for the lad. It just won't work for him with us. Still think he's a talented player and I hope he finds a team that suits his style of play and a manager that can make him confident in his own abilities again.

      I also wonder why Wilson isn't getting some gametime in preseason. I saw him in the inside anfield videos so I assume he is fit? He has always looked good for the U23's and has a great left foot. Must be hard for him to see all his teammates getting gametime in preseason.

      I don't believe he was in the lineup for the U23s last night either, so perhaps he is injured, or he is part of a swap deal for Keita.

      Don't really bother much with preseason these days but caught the goals - quality one from Grujic.

      I don't think so, I just don't think the quality has been there to make that happen. TAA is the only young player we have that I have a lot of confidence in about making it through as a first team regular if I'm honest. Likes of Woodburn look decent enough but even still, look some way off the level to what the likes of Owen were at when that age IMO.

      But, the youngsters done well and certainly showed themselves in a good light with the performance against Tranmere, will do their confidence a lot of good and continue to perform like that and they will get their chances for more game time. Especially when you consider how much better Kent looked than Markovic, Woodburn/Solanke compared to Sturridge etc.
