1-1 on 16 min

Just before that Camacho missed a sitter that a blind dog with 2 legs tied behind his back would have scored

Young reds should have been at least 2-0 up before PSG grabbed an equaliser. Looked like the reds had a good shout for a pen before that as well but the ref waved the appeals away.

That has to be one of the worst misses ever by someone in a Liverpool shirt. Definitely worse than Ronnie Rosenthal's one against villa

Young reds certainly had chances in this game but poor decisions by Duncan, Millar, Camacho and others did not help. Certainly the ref was far too fussy awarding free kicks against the reds when the ball hit arms and some of his other decisions were bizarre. Hopefully the senior team performs a lot better tonight.

I would have liked Glatzel to get on earlier and what is the story with Curtis Jones? Have I missed something?.

PSG caused us problems through our spine and our back line wasn't good, a bit too many leaks against simple balls in behind. On the other side, we missed at least 2-3 glorious chances for more goals at different stages.

What a shockingly embarrassing cock up by Duncan on 63 minutes. It was pitiful they way he insisted on using his left foot to knock the ball in, when it was crying out for him to use his right.

Why do coaches let them away with this nonsense?

No worse than Camachos miss, ah but of course Bobby Duncan is your whipping boy isn´t he. Had he scored a hat trick I doubt if you would have had a word of praise for him. Must admit I think Glatzel is a better prospect though.

It was worse, but clearly that wouldn't make it right anyway. Check it out again. It was shameful.

Ignore list him mate, much nicer life than seeing a 17 year old lad be constantly picked on.

Good idea Sweeting. After 26 years coaching mainly U18´s I am probably a bit more tolerant of their mistakes.

U18s beat Middlesbrough 6:5 earlier today, Duncan scored four and assisted further two to Glatzel and Dixon-Bonner. He might turn out to be another Adam Morgan but it's safe to say that he's taken to playing in Liverpool's U18s like duck to water.

Should have scored 8 though and 5 of the 4 goals he scored were lucky/offside/deflected.

Get rid.

The fact that he can't get a first team game at this age ahead of out-of-form Firmino, Solanke, Sturridge and injured Brewster speaks volumes... ;)

But did he score any with his weaker foot ?

Struggling to find full team news but Liverpool U23s are leading 1-0 against Bournemouth through a Rafa Camacho goal.

It was the premier 2 league cup and we ended up drawing 1-1. We are 3rd out of 4 teams in the group with 2 pts after 3 games

So many random trophies and group stages it is difficult to keep up! We never seem to do particularly well in cup competitions at youth level.
