      Youngster made his first team debut on September 24, going 90 minutes at centre back in the League Cup at Lincoln City.

      really? I didn't watch the first half but in the second half I thought the defence was all over the place, no one looked particularly good.

      I will say that he didn't look any worse than anyone else, but he's another one like Harvey who needs to sort out his hairstyle!

      First half he was good, alongside Virg who led the defence, when he came off it did look a bit different

      I thought he looked ok, seemed a bit surprised by the pace of it a couple of times but I think that shows the step up in levels of pace and power even against a league 1 side


      And really, I'm not sure why you want to judge young kids hair cuts.. bit odd that

      He was fine alongside Virgil and didn't look out of place at all.

      Second half with Fabinho the entire defense was more open but to be expected with a DM playing CB and expected to be the leader at the back.

      People are very quick to judge these kids at times especially when they show some promise.

      All players are judged whenever they play, its literally the only reason I watch nothing matches like yesterday, to see how the fringe players do. If you guys say he was good first half then that's fine by me.

      So sorry. Let me rephrase for absolute clarity.

      For an untested 19yr old making his debut with 2 different partners i thought he did very well.

      Pinged some lovely balls, timely interventions and looked right at home mostly.

      Few hairy (NO pun intended) moments 2nd half as we collectively lost shape but overall, in the circumstances, I thought it was a very encouraging start to a senior football career.

      Yep.
      I was quite impressed with him.
      His ball to Origi was a beauty, and he defended pretty well for the most part in difficult circumstances.

      OK fair enough, as said I didn't watch the first half and even in the second half he was no worse than anyone else.

      So you only seen the second half of Neco Williams as well then?

      Since you have criticised him as well it's good to have that made clear as by your assessment of Neco I presumed you'd watched the entire game.

      You're happy to throw snap judgements about when you haven't seen the whole match?

      seeing as you track my every post, I assumed you'd have read that, in any case I'd judge Neco by a higher standard than Rhys or is that unfair?

      Not even close to be interested in tracking your every post mate. ;D

      Just found it interesting that you're so keen to throw out judgement on a performance when you only seen the second half.

      And that makes it an even better learning experience for him. Ideal, really, in that it doesn't impact the result but coaches can show him constructively what he needs to do better. I liked his poise shown during the post-match interview. Jürgen and the staff have really built a positive developmental environment for our young players. Amazingly, it was another 18ish center back who was supposed to debut last night in Billy Koumetio, but he had a knock. Future is looking bright for Liverpool.

      Exactly mate, there isn't a debate to be had here. He had a sound game, he's just starting his Liverpool experience and the best of luck to him.

      Creating argument about his game is just purely for arguments sake.

      How are you any different to "the weapons" on social media? I bet you are a total dick on social media same as you are here, with your constant wumming, seriously do you feel the need to reply to every single one of my posts?

      BTW what was my snap judgement, that I didn't agree he was terrific, instead saying that he was ok, but oh no not good enough for superfan was it so let me try again;

      Rhys WAS FUCKING AMAZING the best defender I've ever seen in my life, in fact f**k off Virgil we have a new superstar, happy now??

      so what's the point of this thread then?? If we are just supposed to worship every player we have with unflinching loyalty why even bother having a forum??

      Oh and yes you and the other keyboard warrior bullies do obsessively follow every post I ever make whilst condemning social media bullies, its hilariously hypocritical don't you think!

      Your snap judgements is why people have reacted to you (again) because you even admitted you hadnt watched the game

      I counted three man-buns and one toupee last night for our team. Surely an all-time hair record for the club.

      Thought young Williams was decent again last night. Plenty to work with going forward. The big side effect of being knocked out last night is where now does he get game time?

      Yea that's the only reason I wanted us to win last night. I'm less bothered about winning the cup and more about getting our young lads like Rhys more quality game time.

      He looks like he has a bright future here once he gets a bit stronger I was very impressed with his performance last night.

      Yeah, thought he looked much more composed. And to be fair, how nervous would we all have been at 18 with making our first team debut for Liverpool, on fairly short notice? Some mistakes are to be expected, but the improvement over one week, against a stronger opponent, is promising.

      I imagine he will continue training with the first team at Melwood and everyone says those training matches midweek are the best competition these guys face, going up against Mo, Sadio and Bobby, I reckon so.

      Add to that being paired alongside the best CB in the world. It must've added a bit to his stress and desire to do well.
