Still think he will end up as a defensive midfielder.
I agree, I think he’d be exceptional as a 6

I think he'll follow the same path as Gomez. Get games at RB and then move to CB in his early 20s. Doesn't need to wait until 25. Never convinced me attacking wise as a RB but he looks a super little defender who can pass. I think a loan in Jan is more likely.

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!

Yes fair point

If I was Hoever and the club agreed about being a RB I’d be off on loan without a doubt

TAA and Williams in front and the club can put Gomez or Fab in there if we have an injury nightmare

Go and get 30+ games under your belt at a decent passing side in championship or league one

Gary O'Neil has been appointed as assistant coach of Liverpool's U23s.

The former midfielder played in the Premier League for clubs including Portsmouth, Middlesbrough and West Ham United, while his final season as a player saw him named Bolton Wanderers' Player of the Year in the Championship in 2018-19.

A serious Achilles injury saw the 37-year-old enter semi-retirement from playing and he now embarks on his coaching career at the Reds' Academy as U23s boss Barry Lewtas' assistant.

O'Neil, who began work alongside Lewtas in U23s training last week, told Liverpoolfc.com: "I'm really excited. I've been desperate to get going.

"It's been going on for a little while and obviously with the break and the Academy having to take an even longer break than the first team, I've had to wait a little while, but now it's finally come around and I'm really excited and can't wait to get going."

O'Neil is looking forward to forming a strong partnership with Lewtas, who was promoted to U23s coach in May after two impressive seasons with the U18s.

He continued: "Barry is great. He has got a wealth of experience of working with the boys. Obviously he's come through a lot of the age groups with the lads as well, so he knows them very well.

"That will be handy because there's two ways of looking at it: I'm getting to see them with a fresh set of eyes, which can be useful as well, but Barry offers a wealth of experience and obviously I'm new into coaching.

"I think as a team, me and Barry will work very well and there's some fantastic players to work with. For me to have the opportunity to work with such a talented group of young players at such an early part of my coaching career, I feel very privileged."

Academy manager Alex Inglethorpe said: "Gary's knowledge, experience and passion for the game will help not only the players that he works with but also the staff as well."

Must be a friendly or two on the horizon now for the academy sides. Looking forward to seeing them back in action.

From the looks of those Gary O’Neil announcement photos, Abdi Sharif is back in training after his knee injury. Great to see.

Billy Koumetio signs first professional contract with Liverpool FC https://www.liverpoolfc.com/news/academy/405190-billy-koumetio-signs-first-professional-contract-with-liverpool-fc
Good news, seems just about all of our highest rated kids have signed new deals this summer. Hope we get to see them in action soon. Still haven’t heard anything about academy friendlies yet.

I think the u18 and u23's were back last week, still no news about the younger groups though. I am certainly looking forward to the new season and see which players they will go with, really wondering if the u23's will go with Glatzel and Stewart up front, it would certainly be an interesting pairing.

I’d quite like to see that myself. I also think Glatzel might get a league 1 loan move in a few months time if his fitness holds up. He’s 19 but is probably ready for a taste of senior football. Blackpool to link up with Neil Critchley makes sense to me, but we’ll see. I really like him as a player and I’m curious to see how he fares against pros.

It's a possibility that Glatzel will get a loan, although he's only just back from injury. Maybe Fidel O'Rourke will move up as well, he had a good a partnership with Stewart, there is also Joe Hardy as well endless options in the under 23's now.

Fidel has to move up as he was a second year U18.  You’d like to think Stewart would move up a year early too but it might depend a bit on who is coming through.  Max Woltman is apparently a striker in The same year group as Stewart but rarely played last year.  Mateus Musialski has just been bought but EU players sometimes take a little while to get their permits tHrough.   Does anyone know who is in the next age group?  Looks like there might be a striker Harvey Blair, but it is just what I can find on searches for names.

All age groups are back mate.

Hardy, Glatzel and Stewart is a good forward 3.

Harvey Blair and Max Woltman will probably see a lot of time up front for the u18s, assuming Stewart moves up. Not sure who else will be in the frame as a forward in that group. We have Maynor Figueroa’s lad scoring hatfuls for our younger sides but I think he’s still only 13/14.

I wondered why Koumetio’s pic on the LFC website suddenly changed yesterday to show him in the new Nike kit.  Joe Hardy was also shown in Nike so perhaps he is there too.  They were the only 2 academy players with new photos

From what i saw last season he looked good on the ball and showed some really good technique at times. Obviously has the size you need to make in as a centre back in England as well. Can't really say much for his actual defending though as not something i tend to ever focus on when watching the academy games

I’ve not seen the guy play but I hear he’s talented. He certainly looks physically developed enough for a chance at centre back in the first team, maybe they’re seeing if he’s an option for 4th/5th choice if we don’t manage to get a good deal on an experienced Lovren replacement?

any other youth talent joining the seniors other than koumetio and hardy?

we did see some progression for the youth in the squad this year. Curtis scoring a few, neco now secure his role as back up to trent.

Hoping to see hoever, van der berg, and Koumetio feature this season.

A bit of a shame we dont have any forward players in the mould of Salah/mane that could cause the opposition defense some problems with their pace. Glatzel and Brewster are more forwards in the no 9 mould.

Now having watched the training vid on the official website I don’t think Hardy is there. 

On Koumetio, I watched the all the U18s matches, or highlights only, that were shown on the website on lfc tv.  I didn’t think Koumetio was that outstanding, apart from in stature.  I actually thought the club rated Rhys Williams quite highly although he needed to fill out a bit more.   Koumetio was only a first year U18 and didn’t play any U23s that I can remember, but that may have been because of the injury.  So I would be extremely surprised if he is thought of as anywhere near ready for the firsts, as in 4th or 5th choice.  I would think it’s a bit more about testing him, seeing where he is at.  I also wonder if, joining from abroad, he’s hoping for a faster pathway, perhaps like Larouci, or Camacho (I know we didn’t import him but he was Portuguese nevertheless).  I really  don’t get why Larouci didnt want to sign an extension and go out on loan if he wanted first team games.

Will be interesting to see if Hoever does go out on loan. Game time at a good level would be nice, but I'd keep him around for sure. Of all the promising youngsters we have lying in waiting he's the one that excites me the most. I usually like to keep reserved about young players given not many live up to ridiculously high hopes placed on them, but I'd be very surprised if he doesn't end up playing for a top club if not Liverpool. He looks excellent, definitely see elements of Van Dijk and Gomes in his game.

Have to admit I expected him to get a couple of league games in after it was all sewn up. Him not playing in the cup derby surprised me at the time too. Good to see we have him and Williams there, though. Just hope he's patient enough because I can see him being a valuable member of this squad even at a young age.

Koumetio was on the bench for the League Cup game against Arsenal so he's been in and around the first-team set up already, albeit briefly.

A couple of the reliable journalists have said he's one that the club has very high hopes for so this camp in Austria should be a great experience for him.

Do you see him as a rb or cb? I believe he plays rb for the national team and he said himself he is a rb who can play cb but only cb when he is older. Problem is rb is pretty full at the moment and we have Arroyo on loan also.

Didn't spot Harry Wilson, Caoimhim Kelleher, Sheyi Ojo or Ben Wooodbur either (and Joel Matip)
Wilson isn't there I have seen reported. Ono isn't good enough and it looks like their mind has been made up in Woodburn also if that's the case. Jones and Elliott have take his spot in the squad I suppose.
