After Gerrard retired I thought the days of Liverpool being able to bring through top, local talent was long gone. I'm trying to pick my brain but I think before Trent, Stevie actually was the last academy graduate we brought through who managed to nail down a place in the side for a number of years. Wouldn't really class Sterling as an academy graduate because he was signed from QPR when he was about 15.
Saw the goals last night, didn't watch the game but I've seen enough of Jones to believe it's very possible that he could be a feature in our midfield for years to come & it's great to see. Near enough 2 decades of nothing coming through the academy & within a couple of years we get two top, top talents (one of whom is already world class)
