Liverpool's academy now rivals their first-team

The Liverpool academy used to be full of false hope.  For a period of time, fans had high hopes for the youngsters on the books. The ones who’d either carved out a reputation having impressed prior to their move to Merseyside or those boosted by what they eventually turn out to be according to Football Manager.  Ultimately, the Reds weren’t getting the most out of the time and money they put into their academy. Those tipped for greatness fizzled out. …
Wilson, Woodburn & Kent: What next for Liverpool's young trio?

Wilson, Woodburn & Kent: What next for Liverpool's young trio?

Liverpool wouldn't feel like Liverpool if supporters weren't airing some sort of grievance relating to the club, even at this wonderful time. The current grievance of choice is the Reds' summer transfer activity, which has seen them sign just one player so far: young Dutch centre-back Sepp van den Berg.

Liverpool FC and their treatment of youth players

Liverpool FC and their treatment of youth players

The way that Liverpool treat their young players is interesting to me. They seem to fall into two groups under Klopp, and it’s curious to see how Klopp treats, and has treated, both young players and the loan system that they fit into. Take for example, Trent Alexander-Arnold. His meteoric rise may have been accelerated because of an injury to Nathaniel Clyne before the start of the 17/18 season, but it was always clear that Jürgen Klopp intended for Trent …

Why Not Shaqiri?

Why Not Shaqiri?

Ever since Liverpool were first linked with Xherdan Shaqiri, I have found myself one of a large portion of Liverpool fans who were at once disappointed with and confused by the prospective signing of the Swiss international. Six years ago this would have been an exciting signing, with Shaqiri the prospect in high demand across Europe. Indeed, if the Liverpool of six years ago was here today, this might still be an exciting signing.  But it’s not summer 2012 and …

Harry Wilson also registered a well-taken brace as Liverpool romped to a 7-0 win and his all-around 45-minute performance was one that caught the …
