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. …

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 …
Klopp Commitment Great News For Liverpool Youth

Klopp Commitment Great News For Liverpool Youth

Jurgen Klopp delighted the Liverpool fan base last month when the news broke that the German had signed a new contract to keep him tied to the club until 2024. After delivering a sixth Champions League success, a 97 point Premier League campaign and, as it stands,  on course to guide the Reds to a record breaking domestic campaign, the former Borussia Dortmund coach renewing his deal at Anfield is brilliant news for the present day. There will be a …
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 …
Liverpool 1-0 Everton: Who Was Boy of the Match?

Liverpool 1-0 Everton: Who Was Boy of the Match?

Even against a Liverpool team with an average age of 8 years old, Everton still could not find a way to win at Anfield. That old Shankly quote about the Liverpool reserves being the second best team on Merseyside has never been more relevant than it is today. The Reds move into the 4th round of the FA Cup, despite Klopp’s best efforts, and continue their incredible run of form at home. In goal, Adrian had a lot more to …
Liverpool's Neco Williams remains focused on development after first-team debut

Liverpool's Neco Williams remains focused on development after first-team debut

Young Reds defender Neco Williams says his own focus has remained on developing his game since his first-team debut against Arsenal in October. Williams was speaking on LFCTV's latest episode of The Academy, as reported on Liverpoolfc.com. He disclosed the fact that nothing has changed for him since that 5-5 Carabao Cup draw with The Gunners at Anfield. Williams overcame the onset of cramp deep in stoppage time to swing in a perfect cross from the byline on the right. …
