The u23s have a few who need the game time/exposure so can understand holding him back for now. Shame for him and the rest of the u19s that the Youth League format has changed this year as 2 games vs ajax would have been a real test

Maybe some of the u23’s will get loans though, which may open a space for one or two to move up.

Read a nice article about Stewart in the Athletic the other day, where they were comparing him to Torres in terms of his style.

Seems like a decent prospect, by all accounts.

The writer must have been browsing on here  ;D
So much composure. Stewart really does remind me of Torres in how he plays

Yeah I imagine Millar will, woodburn, mayne Longstagff. Once they go it opens up minutes for Stewart

Really wish this was on LFCTV, was quite disappointed not to be able to watch. Especially when I saw that Frauendorf, Balagizi and Mabaya all started. Hopefully they post the full highlights.
I agree about Stewart and his promotion chances, I think we need to find moves for Millar and Woodburn (possibly a few more) before we see him get some u23 matches. I wouldn’t be surprised to see that happen by January at the latest.

Sadly, he'll always regret it. Would he have made it here? Probably not, but he'd have got games last season in the cups at a packed out Anfield for the first team, including a derby in the FA Cup. If he took those chances then he'd have got a better contract and at the least had EFL teams banging on his door for a loan spell. Curtis Jones and Neco Williams took their chances and now are part of the first team.

Contrast what Rhys Williams did last season to what Duncan did. Williams went right down the leagues to mature as a player and a person and Duncan wanted the bright lights of Serie A, with his agent probably telling him he could be the next Jadon Sancho, as if he was ever going to get a game.  Young players should trust the advice of the club over their agent. Now he's a 19 year old with no first team games behind him signing for a Championship clubs under 23 team, when he could have been playing at least 5 or 6 games for Liverpool's first team last season at 18.

Just seen the goals from the u18’s game. That last goal from Stewart was a peach of a goal, lobbed over the keeper. 😀

I have a question about this new keeper Marcelo Pitaluga. In the league he has came from im sure they cannot move to a English club until they are 18. Obviously have the transfer sorted but cannot play in games. So what’s the story with this lad, he is not 18 until December? So can’t he play until then?

Ended 3-3. Andorra scored in stoppage time to equalise. Jones was taken off after great individual play to set up England's second to give them a 2-1 lead. Williams wasn't great on their 2nd, bit slow reacting to a looping header off the bar. Boothroyd manages to drag teams lower than you'd think possible with squad+team selections along with some terrible coaching.

Wow, what a selfish thug. Admitting to intentionally injuring a teammate to get a place in the team, and now to continue the being stupid trend he admits to not being ashamed by what he done. 

He had his chance to show he deserved a chance on the pitch but he bottled it and decided to be a thug. Disappointing so see this is the type of character working in and around the academy especially with the younger age groups. He is anything but a role model. He clearly hasn't matured although thinking about it maturity probably isn't an issue, he's just a thug.

So he though a spot was up for grabs and it was between the two of them. He could have either:

Got his head down and out-train and out-perform his prospective rival day in, day out, for the weeks leading up to the match.

Or stand next to him in every training session and try to injure him every chance he got.

I'm glad he never got to wear the shirt.

Pretty disgusting behaviour, and I guess the fact he has dropped so far down the leagues is confirmation that he didn't have the right attitude and mentality to make it.

I'm sure people have done it before, but usually their conscience will make them plead forgiveness if they do ever admit it.

Sounds like Brewitt is just looking for attention. :wanker

Sure everyone only interested in events at Goodison earlier, but LFC U18s won 3-2 over Sunderland at Kirkby. Two for Layton Stewart and a first on his first start for Ethan Ennis. Congrats to Terence Miles on his debut too.

The very short shortcut to the goals from the Sunderland game are now on the lfc site (but you might need to be a member).  Was interested to find out who the Davidson was that was on the bench.  Seems like he is a Scottish forward who we picked up recently - there are stories on the internet fro Nov last year saying we, amongst many other clubs were interested in the then 15 year old. 

The fact that Davidson, Giblin, Ennis, McConnell, Miles, Hayes-Green, all schoolboys, were playing Or on the bench at the weekend suggests there must be a number if injuries in the squad.  I haven’t included Mabaya in that list because he seems to be playing up regardless.  So, for example, we saw Blair getting what looked like a long term injury in a recent match.  Cannonier played one academy match this season I think but has not appeared since and I thought he was quite highly thought of.   Likewise,  Musialowski.  There’re both forwards.   Then there is Stephenson (but I think he is suspended) and Jonas who wasnt playing (hence presumably Miles playing this weekend). 

From the 2nd years, we know Hill and Morton both have injuries, with Hill’s being a long term one at least.  Also Norris hasn’t been seen for a bit.

Interesting info, thanks for this. Have certainly noticed the u18 side trending quite young recently so I wonder how much is injury related and how much is self-isolation related. Great to get an early glimpse at a few highly rated lads anyway. Obviously Mabaya looks the business, but that Ethan Ennis looks the spitting image of Layton Stewart. Even his goal this weekend reminded me of him. Big talent no doubt.

On the Davidson lad, I found some links to a Bruno Davidson from last year but some articles from January suggest he’s signed for Celtic. Wonder if it’s the same kid or not. It’s nigh on impossible to find much about about the u16 group so tough to say.

He signed last year.  Good goal scorer at u23s and played in both cup runs last season but been injured.

Glad he's been registered for the seniors.
