      Who is stepping out of this group in the next year or 2 to follow Trent and Curtis and impact the 1st team?

      U23s leading Arsenal 3-0 in the 2nd half (live on LFC TV). Jake Cain has scored twice, once on a good individual effort and just now on a total clanger by the Arsenal goalkeeper ("clanger" by any objective standard). Layton Stewart scored the opener with a nice finish after good pressing by Ben Woodburn.

      Brian - to answer your question, there may be more promise among the U18 group to be honest, but Stewart on the U23s is a natural goalscorer. He's not up to Premier League standards athletically yet, but he is one to watch.

      You already know about Leighton Clarkson but he is not playing today. Not sure if he is injured or maybe in the squad for tomorrow.

      Final 4-0 with Ben Woodburn scoring the final goal on an assist from Cain after good pressing by Elijah Dixon-Bonner.

      Paul Glatzel played the final 15 minutes or so, not sure but that may be the first time he's been back in an official match since he was injured sometime before Christmas.

      EDIT: From Official Site: Liverpool U23s: Hughes, Bradley, Beck, Boyes, Koumetio, Clayton, Dixon-Bonner (Sharif, 88), Morton, Stewart (Glatzel, 78), Cain (Hardy, 88), Woodburn.

      Unused substitutes: Savage, Davies.

      I'm hearing some amazing things about our youth team players.

      Looks like we will have lots of talent coming through. Our investment in a sustainable youth player development strategy will pay dividend over the next few seasons.

      Something to be positive about at least.

      After some initial acclaim during preseason, I think Billy has come down to earth and then some. The U18s maybe more promising.

      U23 team brightest prospect Layton Stewart just suffered what looks like a horrible injury in a match vs. West Ham. Writhing in agony on the pitch, maybe an ankle or knee injury. Being given oxygen, carted off.

      Bit of a chinwag going on in the Mane thread might be worth talking about.

      Overall do you think the academy is producing enough talent?

      If the answer is no, is that down to coaching, player ability or simply that at a club were the pressure is so big to succeed that young plsyers will rarely come through because the club buys in internationals who block the youth progression,?

      We are not bsd in my view in the bigger view if it. My concern is though, well 2 concerns

      . Are we producing/coaching these lads to be like for like  to the the first team, as in is Glatzel a copy of Bobby, Mo, Sadio, and if not how can he make it if he does not fit our system?

      .Up to a couple of years ago we never produced any keepers, now we seem to have a load in the ranks. Years ago we seemed to produce strikers or midfielders of good qualiry but now that seems to have dried up. We dont seem to be producing at least 1 player for each area of the desired quality.

      What do you think the club deem as success from the youth setup? And what do you deem it to be?

      Big clubs pimp the work of smaller clubs when it comes to bringing youth prospects  into the big time. Wasn't always like this but it is now.

      Think Musialowski is our most promising one but he's still in the Under 18s.

      Scored another couple tonight.

      The academy is littered with quality players but it’s a long way from talented youngster to first team
