Does Curtis Jones’ rise signal the end for Harry Wilson’s Liverpool career?

Does Curtis Jones’ rise signal the end for Harry Wilson’s Liverpool career?

Among his growing list of plaudits, 19-year-old Curtis Jones can now add captaining his boyhood Liverpool into the fifth round of the FA Cup after this week's triumph over Shrewsbury. After long being touted as one of the many academy graduates who looks more than capable of playing a major role in the first team, Jones is now really starting to add fuel to that fire. Jones has impressed in each of his three showings in the FA Cup this …

The Kids are Alright - Liverpool's Future is its Present

If there was ever a way to demonstrate how Liverpool are currently top of the world, their FA Cup victory against Shrewsbury was it. Not the comfortable victory over the old enemy Manchester United, not putting four goals past Southampton at a whim, they’re becoming quite standard. Not the effervescent performances of Liverpool’s stars, all of whom have their case for the various Player of the Season awards. It was Liverpool’s academy, emblematic of the everything this Liverpool side is. …

Milner: Liverpool's Cultural Architect

The youngest team in the history of Liverpool Football Club qualified for the fifth round of the F.A. Cup with a 1-0 victory over Shrewsbury at Anfield last night. While youngsters such as Harvey Elliott, Neco Williams and Curtis Jones -- who, at 19 years old, became the youngest captain in the club's history -- received much of the plaudits for their on field contributions, the first team squads elder statesman had a role to play in the victory, too. …

Anfield's magic showcased again as Liverpool find another way to win

What a night. We've had a few of those now, haven't we? Maybe none like this though. Liverpool 1-0 Shrewsbury Town in an FA Cup fourth round replay isn't exactly a headline score when taken out of context, but oh the context involved in this one is quite something. A Liverpool team where the oldest player was 22, with 19-year-old Curtis Jones the youngest captain in Liverpool's history. Against a League One side full of grown men, looking to seize …

Shrewsbury Town 2-2 Liverpool - Player Ratings as sloppy Reds are punished and taken to replay

Shrewsbury Town 2-2 Liverpool - Player Ratings as sloppy Reds are punished and taken to replay

In the end, Liverpool were probably lucky they didn't lose the game on the day. Jurgen Klopp will be annoyed at the prospect of having to play a replay against Shrewsbury as well, but this was the least that the hosts deserved, as the lax Reds were pegged back from 2-0 up, as the game finished 2-2. Curtis Jones opened the scoring in the first half, and the Reds were 2-0 up 30 seconds after the restart, with Donald Love's …
Youngsters Pose Food for Thought for Klopp After Derby Masterclass

Youngsters Pose Food for Thought for Klopp After Derby Masterclass

We all knew that widespread changes were likely for Liverpool's FA Cup tie with Everton, and that's exactly what we got. Mass hysteria greeted Klopp's team selection ahead of kick-off at Anfield, with many on social media questioning why more senior players hadn't been included alongside the likes of Curtis Jones, Neco Williams, Harvey Elliott, Nat Phillips and Pedro Chirivella. However, they need not have worried. After a scrappy first half, Liverpool's young guns came out firing on all cylinders …
Liverpool 1-0 Everton: Observations as Jones piles misery on Blues

Liverpool 1-0 Everton: Observations as Jones piles misery on Blues

Every victory over Everton is immensely satisfying, but this was particularly memorable. For once, Liverpool were underdogs, but with the burden of pressure instead falling upon Blue shoulders, they buckled, and Curtis Jones made them pay in dazzling style. Rarely has football seen a hoodoo on the scale of the Toffees at Anfield. More than twenty years have passed since their last victory in enemy territory, and even against a team cheaper than Gylfi Sigurdsson they could not banish their …
Young Liverpool Bow Out of League Cup

Young Liverpool Bow Out of League Cup

An extremely young Liverpool team bowed out of the Carabao Cup after falling to a 5-0 defeat away to Aston Villa tonight. With the senior players in Qatar preparing for the Club World Cup semi final against Monterrey of Mexico tomorrow, the Reds opted to pick a squad -- with an average age of 19 -- composed of players from their under 17, 19 and 23 teams. A brace of goals from Jonathan Kodjia, a Morgan Boyes own goal and …
Liverpool 5-5 Arsenal (5-4 pens): Who was man of the match?

Liverpool 5-5 Arsenal (5-4 pens): Who was man of the match?

It may only have been a League Cup Round of 16 tie, but this will go down as a classic. Liverpool's youth contingent, above all local lad Curtis Jones, will remember for it for the rest of their still-nascent careers. Twice in this match Liverpool were dealt hammerblows - falling 4-2 behind in catastrophic fashion before Joe Willock's wondergoal threatened to render their valiant comeback meaningless. But evidently the relentlessness, the unwavering belief which characterises the first-team is pervasive. Virtually …
