Fingers crossed a good batch of these lads make it with us. Iíd love to see us become the English Ajax in terms of youth development.

Things are looking up for us in terms of youth though arenít they, particularly after so many stale years since Gerrard came along.

Brilliant achievement for the players and staff. They dont have the stand out talents of some previous years but they've been a great team this year and without 2 of our best eligible players dropping down.

He's been embarrassing so glad we did it. I think BT will be in mourning for a while.
I didn't see it so can't comment on the commentary, but I was just looking at a couple of twitter videos posted here by oojason and in the comments there are Abu Dhabi fans talking about how biased the commentary was towards Liverpool.  :o

Anyway, well done young Reds.  :champ

Fantastic win.

The commentary was strange alright, they said in extra time something along the lines of "its almost like a home game for city"

You can't help but smile all the way through to your very core watching the joy they celebrated that last penalty with.

I'm delighted for everyone involved. It'll help external and  internal perceptions of the academy and give a real boost to the careers of those who don't make the grade with us.

He was impressive. Not much cover in front of him but managed to cover two players at once sometimes. Full of running even in extra time, City kept lining up their fastest players against him all game as well.

Wonder if we'll see him in the League Cup next season, just as we saw Trent to begin with at that age.

Funny how in the second clip it wasn't "Liverpool have beaten man city" it was "City have lost to liverpool". Strange commentary.

Watch it again. As soon as the pen goes in: "Liverpool have won the Youth Cup..." he says it a few times. It's only at the end that he says City have been beaten by Liverpool.

Went along to the game and the lads did really well - especially second half, ET & pens, 'cos City bossed the first half and were outstanding at times. Yes, Larouci played well but I thought our best player was Leighton Clarkson before he had to go off - and what about Bobby Duncan, hardly a sniff all night and cracks in a belter ! Mention should also go to our keeper Jaros, he looks a real prospect. Hopefully, some of these lads will really show in a year or two.

Think heís a great prospect, a really wonderful athlete with speed, strength and stamina but he can be a bit hit and miss.  Not too many pages back someone in this forum who attended a match in the Dallas Cup picked out our No3 (Larouci) as a player who gave the ball away time and time again.  Only to be expected at that age but I think heís maybe a little way off in maturity stakes to be playing up at that level.  More likely Adam Lewis might get a chance,if heís not out on loan.  Or a new No 2 LB to Robertson, because Robbo is going to be playing most games.

Thatís a pretty good summation and I entirely agree about Clarkson.

He has few of the physical advantages of some others on the park. Yet he has something more valuable - game intelligence and tremendous ability on the ball. Some of his decision making is very mature, and his little chipped and floated passes are a delight. He has a real chance.

I think he'll struggle to make it at a top team. I really like him as a player, but the physical disadvantages he has at youth football will be amplified at senior level. And there are very few senior sides who play someone of his stature and style at the base of midfield in England. Hard to imagine a lower league side putting faith in him to have a run to try and adapt to it either if hes loaned out. Think he should looking at somewhere like Holland to try and make a breakthrough.

A big caveat in that I donít know this kid but I really hate this kind of thinking. If heís good enough heíll get a chance regardless of his size. Masch was never a big guy but did ok in midfield. Thereís a lot of examples in world football that disprove that you need to be big physically to succeed. I mean, look at the size of Naby Keita. He seems to do ok too.

I never said you need to be big to succeed, but if you're an undersized passing playmaker how many sides in England give you that break through?Masch and Keita are two different types of players to Clarkson, if he had a style like them id say he had a better chance, but it'd still be very hard for him.

U23s are live on lfctv this afternoon for their last game of the season against Blackburn.

Starts at 3.30 with ko at 4pm.

We've nothing really to play for with the Bitters topping the league but a win will see us go above Arsenal into 2nd with only Brighton being able to go above us if they beat Chelsea on 3rd May.

I don't agree with this analysis. As someone has pointed out already, there are examples of small midfielders who've made it - why should Clarkson be different ? The bold bit above doesn't seem to have hampered him up to now despite there being some big physical lads in that league - and Barry Lewtas and the coaches rate him highly. The lad's only 17.....let's see how he develops football wise and physically over the next couple of years.

There's also loads of examples of players who cant cope with the physicality of English football. And again I'm not saying he cant make it at all. But look through English football and how many players of his stature/athleticism and style are starting at the base of a teams midfield regularly?

The step up from playing with 15-18 year olds and full grown men every week is massive.

Not just that but how many have even come through top English academies I can name any.

Mascherano was mentioned earlier but he was a senior and international player when he came to West Ham and he wasn't even being selected because they didn't play him because of this size.

Can see quite a few of these U23s moved on this Summer. Not including the first squad players in this in which a good 4/5 will be off.

At a guess none of these will have a future here: Bogdan, Karius, Markovic, Kent, Wilson, Ojo, Grujic, Ejaria, Woodburn, Allan, Ward, Awoniyi, Chirivella, Randall, Kane.

(Sturridge, Mignolet, Moreno, Origi, Ings, Clyne)

Few quid in that lot but who is going to step up like TAA and Gomez into the First Team Squad?

Sold to Leicester last Summer.   The Echo still reckons Klopp has hopes for Grujic.  Woodburn needs another go at a loan.  Kane has done well in League 1 and could do with a loan to a Championship next time around to increase his value.

Noticed this too, I was surprised we let him leave for Burnley cause I thought he looked pretty good, but I didnít really think Iíd see him in their PL-squad, maybe lots of injuries?

This.  So true.  Really unless you are really exceptionally standout it seems better to get out early and try and work your way up elsewhere.  Lewis Travis didnít play much in our U18s but now played 20 plus games for Blackburn in the championship at 21.  Look how many players we have including at CB who if they went out on loan now would find it difficult to get a mid table championship side, like Johnston, Masterson, Whelan, not to mention Nat Phillips, who has missed much of the season with injury but is behind 4 other CBs, and with Hoever another potential, albeit someway off.  Branagan hang around while he was rated but ended up with Oxford in League 1.  Sadly the opportunities for academy players at Liverpool is getting more difficult than before now  every point is so critical.  Probably harder for an academy player to get minutes with us than any other top 6 team now.  Think Brewster will get some chances next year but itís difficult to see many, if any, others.

City is definitely harder than us but would agree. We cant afford to take risk with Youth at this point, people always say how Klopp brought youth through regularly at Dortmund but he also didnt have near the budget that Liverpool had so had to work more with the youths. Not saying he doesnt want to bring youth through but you need to be elite level prospect to get a chance now.

Only players i see getting a chance next year are Brewster and Hoever. Think Hoever will get some back-up RB minutes when needed and some cup games. Brewster will be 3rd choice Striker next year with Sturridge and possibly Origi leaving and my guess is a versatile front line player will come in to rotate with the big 3 with Brewster getting minutes behind them.

Only things I don't agree with you are Wilson getting sold and Hoever getting backup rb minutes.  I think Wilson will get a loan to a prem club next year and the only minutes that Hoever will get are early cup round games at CB.  I think we'll stick with Trent and Gomez for the RB position next year with Milner as emergency/3rd choice.  I do think Brewster will get opportunities as Sturridge is clearly leaving.

Sold to Leicester last Summer.   The Echo still reckons Klopp has hopes for Grujic.  Woodburn needs another go at a loan.  Kane has done well in League 1 and could do with a loan to a Championship next time around to increase his value. 

i wonder if woodburn is quick enough to play in a klopp MF?

if we're looking at aouar to play as that MF that links with attack i'd say ben's days are numbered as houssem just a year older.

sell him in the summer if we can't get him a decent shop window loan to push his value up?

same with grujic.  i like the look of him but it would be mental to turn down £35m from Atletico.

that would pay - for example - rabiot signing on fee and a big chunk of his wages.
