Oh yes! Will most probably have to change shifts at work. Will be there for sure, also more Liverpool supporters from this area (like last season at Maribor). Will be a joy to watch our kids beat Dinamo (can't live with this sudden hype/love for that club in Zagreb since they got some quality European results since decades).

:well done:

Just been watching the highlights of the recent u18 games whilst waiting for the UFC to start, it struck me how many good midfielders we have at that level; Dixon-Bonner, Cain, Bearne and Clarkson have all looked good whenever I've seen them. None of them stand out so far so it's tough to predict that any will make it here but we'll see over the next year or two if any of them can really step it up in their development.

Duncan's link up play seems to be improving too, looks more composed on the ball than previously which is a good sign as goals at this level will only get you so far. Fidel O'Rourke will be getting more chances now that Glatzel has seemingly moved up to u23 permanently now, possibly due to Markovic leaving?

Looking forward to seeing Chamberlain playing with the U23s soon and hopefully Woodburn and Brewster won't be too fair away either.

Woodburn nearly gets his leg snapped by a dreadful tackle, right in front of the referee, not even a foul given.

Refereeing is a tough job but when you see something like that it's inexplicable really.

Everton 1-0 up and are defending fantastically. Liverpool need to change the midfield, a 3 of Coyle, Davies and Randall isn't going to worry anyone. I'd get McCauley on and move Jones into the middle.

I didn't watch it as it was my wife's birthday and I've heard that it is rude or something to watch the U23s on your phone in a nice restaurant.

We got beat 2-0 anyway.
Shankly would disagree ;-)

“Of course I didn’t take my wife to see Rochdale as an anniversary present. It was her birthday. Would I have got married in the football season? Anyway, it was Rochdale reserves.”

Reminder that the Youth Cup game v Bury starts in 10 minutes. Funny, it's live on TV here on one of the sports channels that cover PL football in the Balkans. Nice chance to watch our kids before the CL.

On Croatian channel SK3 on Mobdro. We are leading 1-0 at the moment.

Glatzel scored. Duncan made it.

Bad mistake let´s Jake Cain in for number 2. They took a short goal kick, pass was underhit and the defender was not ready for so made a mess of his attempted pass. Just on HT.

Another for Glatzel. LFC clearly a cut above Bury .Decent crowd ,awful conditions.

I see Derby v Liverpool U23's is on LFCTV GO this Friday. I do have LFCTV, but not the GO, so how can I watch this match?

What do you guys make of Rhys Williams?

Just been reading a piece on the Echo comparing him to Van Dijk (physically big, calm, confident, good communicator etc). Would be nice to think we had another talent coming through at CB...

Probably wouldn't be getting compared to van Dijk by people if he were white...

Anyway he looks a decent talent but I don't think we are particularly great at developing centre backs. He's probably the best one we have had (not including Gomez) in years but then again the CB quality has been appauling at youth level - Whelan, Masterson, Juanma, Johnston etc.. none of them are going to come close to making it.

Jones opens the scoring.

The Ox unsurprisingly looking a little breathless. Slight concern with him earlier seemed to be rubbing the back of his thigh.
