Putting van den Berg to one side, Glatzel is probably the youngster that excites me the most after Brewster and Hoever. I think he's one of those that will likely get promoted to play full time at Melwood while continuing to play for the U23.

He’s been getting in the Germany u21 team so he’s obviously well thought of over there as well. No doubt the Bundesliga teams will be sniffing round before long. If he can see a route into the LFC first team squad he’ll be more likely to ignore their approaches when they come.

Duncan and Glatzel for me.

Both going on the USA tour as well which will be great for them.

I try and watch as many of the matches as I can and I've really missed out on Glatzel. He's passed me by totally for some reason.

I'm still sad Tagseth didn't make it. I hope Brewster and Glatzel and Duncan kick arse in the US.

The Germany U21 team. Really? The u21 euros were on during the summer and he wasn't with them. What makes you think he has been getting in the Germany U21 team? His last cap that I seen was for the Germany u18 team.

Have to say I agree with you here- which is why I think Glatzel is better positioned to make it. He just seems to have a more well rounded game than Duncan at this stage. Still young though and a lot can happen in the next two years.

That's pretty much my opinion too, although they're both young and there's still a lot to develop of course.

Hope Glatzels injury wasn't a bad one today...

Most impressed by Hoever. The lad was on another level. We need a proper thread for Hoever soon. He is something special.
I don't even know what his position will be, because his skills are so unique. He is more Beckenbauer than anyone I have seen.

So a forward that has the main attribute in his position which is scoring is going to struggle.

He already played for Man City youth team and is now at Liverpool, won the youth cup and is now involved in pre season and clubs in German are wanting him.

You do realise that other things can be worked on. He's young.

Yes, 18s rather than 21s. But the point remains the same - he will be on the radar of the German clubs’ radar to an even greater extent than their usual monitoring of youngsters at English clubs.

I mean not to compare them, but Robbie Fowler didn’t look to have any outstanding attribute ‘apart from finishing’ when he was young

I think Bobby did a pretty good job replacing Kuyt as our workhorse forward.

Same could be said of Neil Mellor. I think he's got more in common with Mellor than Fowler, but we'll see.

Has Hoever played much midfield? I feel like it's much more suited to his skillset, though he looks like he can play anywhere.

Physically Duncan looks like a young Rooney type,very strong and dynamic looking lad.

He scored his one chance which is always good for a striker,to have that finishing touch.

I really know next to nothing about him but looking forward to watching a few youth games this season to see how he and the other kids do.

And we shouldn't either. This team is now at such a high level that we cannot accommodate someone of Dirk's limited technical ability and limited speed. We are a team built on speed and skill.

The chants for Kenny Dalglish that were heard again on Wednesday do not necessarily mean that the fans see him as the saviour. This is not Newcastle, longing for the return of Kevin Keegan. Simply, Dalglish represents everything Hodgson is not and, in fairness, everything Hodgson could or would not hope to be.

It's going to a busy season for the academy lads with the extra games in the EFL trophy, especially if we get some easier early round draws in the League Cup.

The u23s title.  The EFL Trophy.  UEFA Youth Cup.

It's great they'll be getting some open age competitive game time rather than just youth games.

Milner will be the go to person but leaves development gap for the two youngsters if we don’t sign anyone

Kane is good because he's a target man who is quicker, more technical, more creative and more clinical than nearly every other target man.  He's very good at a lot of aspects of the game.  Duncan for me would be more like Aguero, low centre of gravity, stocky build and good finisher.

When viewing football games, there's a tendency for all of us to just focus on the ball, but one of the biggest reasons some target 9s are really good over others, for as much as they're good in finishing and technique to strike the ball and strength (all of which Kane has), is actually movement. They know how to ghost between defenders or manipulate the defenders about their position. I've seen someone like Cavani (whose movement is elite) tap on a defender's shoulder from right, and before the defender turned right, he moved to the left & went through on goal. Off the ball movement is extremely important for target 9s, & the elite ones are quicker in their minds than the opposition defenders on what to do next.
