According to the Echo Everton's under 23's are back in training next week, curious to know if ours will follow suit.

We're back in training today. Under 18 & 23's etc barring Elliott, Williams, Jones.

All other age groups back also.

Not Liverpool related but it was interesting to read that Angel Gomez is struggling to find any elite level takers having walked away from United for free last month. Salary demands are no doubt a factor but also no doubting that he has failed to live up to the hype. Aged 14/15 many (even on these boards) judged him to be a once in a generation type talent.

It depends on what Gomes is looking for, but I think he'd be a smart signing for any big club as a low risk, Solanke-type signing.

He does look a big talent, or at least he has for United's academy. He's better than Chong who has had first-team opportunities, so you would think that he was held back there because of the situation with his contract. I don't know what he's asking for in terms of wages, but in terms of ability and potential he's worth taking a chance on for a lot of clubs.

I think the quote from the Athletic piece said those U23s who had been training with the firsts would be given extra leave, so Cain, Clarkson, Glatzel, Hoever.  The 3 above are definitely part of the first team squad now so aren’t included in the other squads, except that they are likely to drop down to play occasionally.  In fact I think Hoever might technically part of the first squad too, at least he was listed for at least some of last season on the first team squad page on the official website, and in the official photo with the first team squad, whereas the others are not.  That photo has since disappeared, waiting a new group one for next season, even though the individual pics are there, in the new Nike kit.

New contract for Tom Hill today. Had a great season last year, very versatile with an eye for goal. Interesting to see what his best position is, did well in midfield and had a knack for those late runs to the edge of the box.

Yeah think the fungal problems were when Trent was trying to slide into that girls PMs
Trent is pretty poor at free kicks. Said it for a long time. One decent free kick a few years ago and the commentators think he's Beckham

I agree he's an enjoyable player to watch, it will be fascinating to see how he progresses in the new season.

Hoever is weighing up a loan move

https://www.thisisanfield.com/2020/08/ki-jana-hoever-weighing-up-loan-move-with-appearance-targets-set/
It is weird how Neco leapfrogged him so quickly when Hoever was so highly rated. A loan may be the best thing for him.

Interesting that he sees himself as a right back.

Agree, and that he first at 25 sees himself move into the centre back position. I really like the look of Hoever, and think he could very well challenge for a cb role much sooner than that.

Funny enough, it could very well be because Hoever was playing for Holland during the Arsenal cup game. Williams took his opportunity and ended up getting his minutes in other cup games and in the end even PL appearances.

Could easily be and shows right place, right time is as important as many factors in getting a break through

I still point to rashford’s big break coming as a result of freak injuries and last minute opportunity - going on loan ironically could cost you a chance at your main club so it’s not an easy decision to make, I’m thinking particularly Brewster in that example

Even weirder is that he was amazing in those Holland games.

Its tough for centre backs to break through at a top club until they are around 23. They need to be patient.

I'm not sure a loan would be the right move for Hoever, it will be interesting to see if Klopp does.

But I think his opportunities at Liverpool might be limited if he doesn't think he'll be ready to play at CB for another 7 years.

It was the same for Trent too wasn't it? Got his chance because of injury and didn't just grasp it he kept it and locked it up!
