    How do we reckon he'll do? I see him following the Tammy Abraham pattern, if we are lucky. 8-10 goals.

    Thoughts?

    He needs game time so happy to see him go out.  Hopefully seizes the opportunity.

    I believe in him completely. If he stays fit and gets a run of games, I'm absolutely convinced he'll be something special.

    As you’ve watched him more than anyone else on here, what attributes does he have that has you so convinced?

    I remember from pre season he seemed to have a good knack for being in the right place but in terms of technique and all that stuff I find it hard to judge as not seen him on the ball enough.

    He's got everything, I think. He's smart, he's got that instinct for attacking space, he anticipates really well, he's got great movement, he can do tap-ins but also shots from outside the area, he can play pretty much anywhere along the front line, and he's just got something distinctive about him - if he realises his full potential I think he'll be like Firmino but with more goals.

    Ive admittedly not seen that much of him but I always got the impression that he wasnt tricky or strong enough to be operating in a wide position. Thought he was more of a front man with good acceleration over 5-10 yards and good finishing ability. Similar to the likes of Owen or Defoe.

    He wont make it here anytime soon.  A 2 year loan spell would do him good like it as done so for Abrarams

    Article: Swansea City’s loan move for Liverpool striker Rhian Brewster is at a standstill over contract clauses with Leeds United and Bristol City waiting to profit if there is a permanent break down in negotiations.

    The Independent understands Steve Cooper’s side struck an agreement with the Premier League leaders without a fee for the 19-year-old, with only wage recovery and financial penalties if he doesn’t play factored into the equation.

    Despite such a favourable trade between the clubs, Swansea are being unobliging with personal elements of the transfer like goal bonuses.

    The Championship’s sixth-placed side have only been willing to grant such basic rewards if they achieve promotion, a stance that has been rejected.


    Brewster was due to travel to the Welsh coastal city on Tuesday to finalise his temporary switch, but that has now been placed on hold.

    It is hoped that a resolution can be quickly found as the forward has been keen to be reunited with Cooper. Brewster thrived under his guidance as manager of England Under-17s and won the Golden Boot two years ago during the World Cup triumph.

    The Independent has been informed both Leeds and Bristol City have been in contact with the teenager’s representatives in the hopes of swinging a deal their way late on.

    The latter are unsure whether Eddie Nketiah, who had his spell under Marcelo Bielsa cut short, will join them on loan and have thus been seeking out alternatives.

    Brewster, whose preference in terms of guaranteed minutes is Swansea, is not short of options as he plots a crucial phase of his development.

    Is that really helpful though? I understand we want to ensure he gets playing time while on loan, but as a young player, when you're on the pitch you need to be absolutely sure it's because the manager believes in you, not because the club is forced by financial disincentives. This way even if you do earn your place completely on merit, you can't be sure that you did. It seems like a prudent clause to insert, but I'm not sure it helps in the long run. It's more important to find a club and a manager with the football philosophy that would allow this player to flourish if he's good enough.

    This is a bit naive. Any manager worth his salt, will choose his own player over one that's on loan, as that's the only one that will benefit the club in the long term.

    The entire reason we have started writing these clauses into the contracts is due to our history of loaning players like Ilori to Villa (he wasn't played in a single game) or Teixeira to Brentford (where the club had a difficult spell and the manager decided to stick to more experienced players). These players went on loan to get game time, but ran into managers that didn't want to develop them. Clubs promised to play them, but then ended up hindering their careers as they would have been better off staying at Liverpool.

    If he was that similar to Owen, he'd be in the first team by now

    Poor Illori - didn't get a game at Villa, didn't get a reserves game with us ... its a wonder he didn't seize up at the time.

    Injuries came at the worst time possible for him, huge shame as he looked the real deal.

    But time is getting on and you don't stay a teenager for ever....sadly don't see him making it and going the same way the likes of Kent Ibe Ojo Sinclair etc have
    gone.

    Where did Sinclair make it? Watford dumped him, didn't they?

    Article: Swansea City have completed the signing of highly-rated Liverpool forward Rhian Brewster on loan for the rest of the season, subject to international clearance.

    Brewster reunites with Swans head coach Steve Cooper, who he played under during England Under-17s’ World Cup success in 2017 – a tournament where Brewster won the Golden Boot with eight goals.

    The 19-year-old has featured three times for the Reds this season
    – most recently in the FA Cup win against Everton on Sunday – and was on the bench for the Champions League final triumph over Tottenham Hotspur in June.

    The loan signing comes shortly after Sam Surridge’s return to parent club Bournemouth, with the Swans beating a number of clubs to secure Brewster’s signature.

    Brewster, who will wear squad number 19, underwent a successful medical today and will train with his new team-mates on Wednesday. He will also be available for selection for Sunday’s Championship clash with Cardiff City.

    Brewster started his career with Chelsea before joining Liverpool as a 14-year-old.

    He worked his way up the academy ranks with the Reds and, after his huge success with England Under-17s, was named on the bench during Liverpool’s Premier League clash with Crystal Palace at the age of 17.

    Highly rated at Anfield, he signed a new long-term deal in the summer of 2018 and resisted offers from top European clubs to remain with the Reds.

    He was part of the matchday squad for Liverpool’s dramatic Champions League semi-final second leg victory over Barcelona and was again named as one of Jurgen Klopp’s substitutes for the 2-0 defeat of Spurs in the final.

    Should get ample opportunities under a coach who knows him well.

    What fucking shite!

    Tammy Abraham, now aged 22, went on loan to Swansea 2017-18 and scored 5 goals in 31 appearances. He's now looking like potentially a top striker.
