    Is Ojo anywhere close to form and worthy of a spot on the 1st team bench ?

    His ability was never in doubt, but his application was said to be in-inspiring.. Considering he was very close to a break through prior to his injury he must be getting close again. I'm guessing he's dropped down the pecking order behind Woodburn and Wilson now. Ojo has the physicality which both do lack, so that would go in his favour.

    I think they are trying to add some cutting edge to his game. Kids who play out wide and are as talented as Ojo for this level someone get caught up in thinking that beating their guy is what counts. If you play him up front he has to think a bit more about the over all game and being productive in a team sense, and that's a mentality he can then take with him once he's moved back out wide and challenging for the first team.

    Yeah I'd agree with that and when he's up front it doesn't matter as much that he's not helping out his full back. To be fair to Ojo he seems to have took Klopps comments on board and is working a lot harder of late

    Always felt that Ojo's lack of application has been exaggerated. He was lazy when he first came to the club as a young kid but I've seen him put in excellent shifts in various positions including the 8 role we saw Coutinho operate in at the weekend (not Coutinho are Ojo are similar as Ojo is more of a runner than a thinker).

    Unpopular opinion maybe but I actually feel like Wilson does far less defensive work than Ojo - and has a lower ceiling

    Rather than Ojo being lazy I just think pressing doesn't come naturally to him but you can tell he's putting in a concerted effort to add this to his game.

    Hard work is not only an issue when we dont have the ball.

    We've rejected both Loan and Permenant moves for Wilson from Celtic. Sounds like he'll get more of a chance next season, great news, I think he's a fantastic player.

    A fairly good list of the top 10 academy goals.

    All I know is that this signing was done last year and he was said to be a highly skilled kid, an attacking midfielder, I think. Beside that, I really don't know anything else. He does look genuinely thrilled to be a Liverpool player, I know a lot of people from these parts, me included, who will be happy that Liverpool are signing the best young players from here. :-)

    Brewitt Tom
    Brimmer Jake
    Dunn Jack
    Gomes Aju Madger Antonio
    Lewis Kane
    Manninger Alexander
    Phillips Adam Lee

    This is the list of released players. Gutted that Jack Dunn hasn't made it here, I loved the kid since the first day I saw him play but he just couldn't stay fit. I'm a bit surprised that Madger Gomes and Jake Brimmer have been released so quickly, I guess it had something to do with them failing to settle in a new country, I had high hopes for both, especially the former.

    That list seems a bit short. Maybe because the restrictions we have on signing Academy players this season.

    More players will be released than are on that list. The retained/released list is bizarrely not exhaustive.

    “The boys did really well but they all have to improve,” Klopp said.

    “They have to go from being really skilled kids to being players that you have to use. That’s the next step.

    “Look at Rhian Brewster, everyone knows about his talent. It’s fantastic.

    “Ben is a step ahead and someone like Trent is already another step ahead. It’s all cool and good for the future.”
