I still stand by what I said. If its a straight choice between Ryan Fraser and Harry Wilson I'm choosing Wilson every time. If its a choice between an empty squad place and Wilson I'd be keeping him for now too. In fact at this stage if its a choice between Wilson and Shaqiri (as much as I love Shaqiri and always wanted him here) its Wilson for me. Wilson is still young enough that it is not impossible for him to learn other elements to his game but even if he doesn't he'd still be a useful player here and there especially if we've swapped to a 4231 for (starting) or during a game (coming off the bench). Don't get me wrong I don't believe Wilson will be able to adapt into a real useful option for the way we play and in normal circumstances I'd be looking at a big signing coming in. Just these aren't normal circumstances and its silly and possibly dangerous if we just Bury our heads in the sand and act like they are.KLOpp does not believe Harry Wilson can contribute to this team and its proven in these non stop loan deals. Harry wilson himself does not want to be in a rotation wheel. I don't think Ryan Fraser has shown he can be someone of use to us so i don't think he is the answer, but clearly the club and Klopp and his staff don't believe in Harry Wilson, he is a surplus and a after thought to this team and how we set up. The truth is the majority of these youth players are developed to be sold for profit to other teams and to spread our imprint of Liverpool football club amongst the other teams. you won't have a team filled with academy graduates filling up the squad. Take Chelsea for example, no matter how much Tammy Abraham,Mason Mount and to some extent players like Billy Gilmour and others have impressed for them, they can't even defend their spot as Chelsea splashed the cash for Ziyech and Werner to take their spots. This is how big teams behave, this is how things are done and forever it will be done this way.
