      Good effort lad.
      Looked a lot more composed than most first half, and set up an attacking move brilliantly in the second. 
      Looking at the CB situation, he's going to need to repeat that performance a good few times for the first XI.

      No way he is 16 playing like a seasoned pro already, the future is bright.

      That run he made in the second half was top class. What a talent we have here lads.

      It would have been nice to stay in the Cup for him to get another appearance!

      Promising debut for such a young lad in such a mature position but he's got years of loans and hard work ahead and all the pitfalls that can fell these young players.

      Good luck lad.

      How he develops to become a first team regular must be a nightmare for the coaching staff. He is clearly talented enough now how do you get him through these next 3 or 4 years when he will still be only 20.

      He should definitely be back up to TAA at RB until he develops physically to be a CB.

      As good a senior debut as I've seen from a kid.

      Very important match for the youngster, but will still need time to progress accordingly.

      After that display I would say that he could probably start to play a few games here and there for us . Rooney started at more or less the same age didn't he?

      Big difference Mate , Rooney was not a CB, any mistakes he made were less costly If we are uncatchable  the last two or three games start him by all means

      If he gets any more starts it will be as a RB assuming we have no CB injury crisis.
      He will be introduced slowly like Gomez.

      He even played like a full back last night in the CB position.

      He must have been thrilled to get his first game and he like the other two lads Camacho and Curtis Jones did really well.
      At 16 he played in a position that really does require a great deal of experience as well as strength and he has neither yet but he still put in a great performance. The only good thing last night was to see our next generation doing so well in a difficult game

      Compare his passing out from the back to Lovren hoofing it upfield.

      He is RB isn't he? I agree that CB would be far too risky, but as RB against lesser opponents I'd give him a few minutes here and there.

      Looked far too good to be a full-back.

      Good debut. Not without errors, which is fine. Great to see our Academy is still doing the business.

      Similar to TAA, when you have an aura of class about you it almost feels wasted in defence. Watching him move the ball past about 4 Wolves players was impressive.

      I'm no coach though so f**k knows.

      Yep, I can see him as a holding midfielder in a few years time.

      He's still too young and slightly built to be starting games for us. He looks a talented boy, but in shoulder to shoulder contests with the grown men he was playing against the other night it was a huge mismatch. If he was a forward it might be worth the risk, but you can't have a skinny wee kid playing in your back 4 at PL/CL level - he'd get eaten alive.

      In a year or 2 when he fills out he might be a great option for us, but we're kidding ourselves if we think he is ready for first team football this season.

      A lot of CB's start life at full back he isn't physically strong enough to play regularly at CB but on the bench and time at FB why not especially at Anfield when the game is all but over

      Good article by Pearce today detailing how he was scouted by Barry Hunter, his family given the Royal treatment on a tour of Kirkby and Anfield which convinced them that we were the right place for his development. Since he wasn't old enough to sign a pro deal in Holland, he only cost the club 100,000 Euros. He turns 17 next week and is set to sign a pro deal then. Now he gets 145 a week. He lives with a local family and his parents come over every weekend.

      Not a dig at Liverpool because you’ve got to play the game but this is a lot of what is wrong with football these days. This lad should be playing and developing in his homeland where a club there can benefit from his talents and then hopefully make a few €s. That he can be snatched away by one of the richest football clubs in the world at 16 for peanuts is wrong
