I can if you want, send me a PM.I was about to ask for someone to send the whole article if it was possible. I love reading what Inglethorpe has to say, he's often very direct when it comes to young players and their futures, I think that sincerity is one of the things that made him so good at his job and influential when it comes to redeveloping club's academy.
Someone pointed out he actually used his left foot quite a lot/quite well. Anyone know if he has ever been tried at LB in the academy?I hope that the rest of the season will be more relaxed for Liverpool, so Klopp can use Williams, Jones and Elliott more often in order to prepare them for the next season, especially now that five subs are allowed. Elliott did alright last night but Williams had a beautiful cameo, his PL debut if I'm not mistaken. Obviously, Palace were in damage limitation mode but he still played like someone with a point to prove. Quality dribbles in one-on-one situations and a fantastic through ball to release Salah - I honestly didn't expect him to have confidence for that even in those "relaxed" circumstances.
He'll hopefully face much, much harder tests in his Liverpool career but judging by his cameo last night, he simply continued where he left off (and I don't think he played in a stronger Liverpool side) and will only build on his promise, fitness permitting. I wish Liverpool had a left-footed equivalent of him, so Robertson can have a breather here and there and Klopp can have someone to develop and rely upon when Robertson isn't available.
Not sure about that but Robertson played a pass back to Alisson with his right foot from quite some distance (hey there, @Zoran!). Maybe they're insistent on working on that in training, which means that Larouci will go Moreno's way.Someone pointed out he actually used his left foot quite a lot/quite well.

We signed him when he was 16 but he turns 19 this year.Abel Rodrigues surprised at him leaving. Thought we had a left back for the future with him coming from PSG I think. 16 quite a young age to be released. Anyone have any thoughts on him?
Just wondering where he will end up playing, obviously cover at RB is great, but with Trent being so young, being reduced to cup games is not ideal, if he continues to progress the way he is.neco's composure/confidence on the ball jumped off the screen in the same way during his FA cup appearances, looks like he could play almost anywhere
He played very well at RW for us in the friendly against Blackburn, but if that is feasible in the PL I guess time will tell.Just wondering where he will end up playing, obviously cover at RB is great, but with Trent being so young, being reduced to cup games is not ideal, if he continues to progress the way he is.
People have always suggested Trent could play in midfield, but is it possible that Neco will move to a more advanced role similar to another Welsh full back who sits on the bench at Madrid?
In hindsight, that might have been a good option against Everton. Everton were playing narrowly and we had no threat on either flank, Neco staying wide might have caused them a few issues.He played very well at RW for us in the friendly against Blackburn, but if that is feasible in the PL I guess time will tell.
He would be behind VvD, Gomez, Matip, Fabinho, Hoever and maybe Van Der Berg but then Lovren might be too. Is he good enough to be that level of emergency cover? Almost certainly, if we need it.Thought he played well in the cup for us in a one off game, but do people think he is good enough to be our 4th choice CB in we sell Lovren?
I don't know who has been saying he won't make it here, I think he looks like a fabulous talent. He's tall, strong, quick, composed, good passer...@Sweeting or anybody else who watches the youngsters regularly. Thoughts on how Billy Koumetio please?
I was under the impression that people didnt think he would make it here. Is that still the case or is he making bigger strides than was first thought?
I haven't been impressed by Sepp Van Den Berg at all.I don't know who has been saying he won't make it here, I think he looks like a fabulous talent. He's tall, strong, quick, composed, good passer...
Looks a better prospect than van den Berg in my not-so-humble opinion.
My impression of him is that he is a good prospect but over-hyped. He needs to take a big step up to be anywhere near good enough to compete for a place against our front 3 (and that's what we need). He looks like he can finish and has decent movement. His touch at times is good but at times, very poor, same goes for his passing. If there is potential there, he is in the right place though to take the next step.
I am not allowed to put this in the Rhian Brewster thread for some TIA rule maybe, not sure why, but I am really glad Rhian is doing well at Swansea, he scored 2 goals.
Hope he comes back to LFC next season.
