    Eliott. Looks awesome at such a young age and already has first team experience at two clubs.

    U23s soundly beaten again, 4:1 vs Man City U23. I watched the extended highlights; this time we at least created some good chances, a bit unlucky not to score more – but the defense is ropey as fuck. Two of the goals came from set pieces – big problems in organization there, just like in the previous games. But City were cutting us open on the counter-attack too, especially in the 2nd half.

    Hoever and Van den Berg started together at CB for the first time; I'm glad we kept Lovren because neither of them seems ready for prime time and Larouci unfortunately seems all but hopeless defensively. Probably not enough protection from Chirivella at DM too, so the defense kept getting overrun.

    He looks pretty crap tbh. Only 17 though so has plenty of time.

    Yep he's 17, first season in Liverpool. They probably saw the mistakes during the scouting process but are hoping iron them out. How many 17 year old CBs play top level football? So we'll see how good he is in 2-3 years.

    We've got rid of a lot of the older u23s, right? So this lot are young and inexperienced... I thought getting shot of Duncan might help the morale or whatever

    I’m more concerned about the scouting report about him that highlighted his weak mentality. You have absolutely zero chance of making it at LFC if you have that trait at any age.

    Not really, a lot of them have played with each other for a while....we don't have many 21-22 year olds playing there.

    Only ones who have left are George Johnston and Conor Masterson.

    Woodburn on loan, Ojo on loan, Kent sold, Ejaria loan.

    And you have a copy of this report as it's quite a confidential document.

    Only his eyes. I think it's perfectly reasonable.
