Anyone know how good Kelleher is? Looking highly rated by Jürgen, but will he ever be good enough for us or..

At the moment it seems like he's a bit ahead of Grabara (I've noticed we rotated them while Kamil wasn't out on loan in terms of who would train/travel with the team as 3rd choice, etc.), at least since last pre-season. Think Klopp then said something like he's satisfied with how he progressed and praised his ball playing skills. It will be very difficult for any young up and coming goalkeeper in the next years if Alisson is fit and consistent. It generally is, but in this case especially considering Alisson's strong first season and he looks like one of the best in the game right now. Think we'll get an experienced/cheapish backup to replace Mignolet next summer.

A bit of youth cup news - Arsenal won the big clash with Spurs 5-2 AET = Genuine major talents Saka and Amaechi both started (for Arsenal).

Obviously I have only seen him in Televised youth games. He seems to have improved a lot this season and is very good at U23 level but I must admit I slightly prefer Grabara, but I tend to agree with Zorans view.

I also like Grabara (and then Kelleher emerged out of nowhere, to a similar level?), from what I've seen. Both seem like good prospects. Maybe we thought Grabara was more in the need of serious games out on loan and our staff in that moment rated Kelleher that bit more.

From what I've seen of the two of them playing for u23's Grabara was better than kelleher but the start of this season Klopp promoted kelleher to no3 behind migs, I was a bit surprised to be honest but Klopp gets most things right so we will see.

All Markovic does is play 'wall passes'. No desire to influence the game at all.

At this level Markovic should be dominating but he's not. He is clearly not bothered, he's so casual. He's on a good wage and he seems satisfied with his lot. Need to ship this waste of space out asap.

Jones off, Juanma on. I thought this game couldn't get any less interesting.

Thought Jones was playing very well until his injury. Hope it s not to serious.

What's going on with Woodburn? At some point he just needs some games, he's been in nowhere land for year and a half now with failed loan this year. Didn't play a bunch of football last year either for youth sides. Surprised he didn't play for u23s today. Is he injured?

They're trying to get him out on loan again so they probably didn't want to risk any injury by playing him.

2-0 at half time. Rhys Williams and Glatzel with headers assisted by Clarkson and Larouci. Incidentally, Clarkson and Larouci have been the best players on the pitch.

Accrington are defending fairly well and have had a couple of chances, putting up more of a fight than I expected. Liverpool haven't got out of 2nd gear yet.

Shock win tonight by Brighton in the Youth Cup, knocking one of the favourites, Man U OUT! 3-1 away.

Just Arsenal and not much else left. Pundits claim - even after the World Cup - that you have to beat the best to win a cup. Clearly you don't!

Just the 4. But we'll take that won't we?!
Aye. Should have been more but we were a bit sloppy at times, Duncan especially.

Glatzel hattrick and good performances from Clarkson and Larouci. Clarkson has a nice range of passing and Larouci runs past players as if they're not there, full back is definitely his spot.
