Anyone have a recent update on Brewster? Is he out for the season? And does he want to stay with the club or not as i know he was at the very least considering options.

Heres what i read "After a sensational WC U-20 Brewster wants to go to a club that will integrate him into the first team and give him the platform to make on his success. He has eyes on Dortmund as they will be set to loose a few players in summer and he feels will give him better opportunities. "
Sadly he is long term injured for now (till May'18).
I think with him not in foreseeable plans at LFC, he will look to move for better opportunities. LFC are looking for players and every tom and harry gets linked. With LFC looking to fight for top honors next season i feel opportunities for youngsters will remain restricted to cups and deadwood matches. I may add this seems to be the story for most bigger clubs. But i'd love to see wilson brewster and woodburn more in first team, whatever may be the risks and consequences. Faith and taking chances is what gave us the likes of gerrard, owen, Fowler and even recently TAA. we haven't had a player, a Mr. Liverpool that defines this club since ages.
Of course in hindsight many won't agree with me to waste a season trying to find out whether these young players have it or not and of course the senior proven players won't like one of them taking their spot either so yea football management is a Bi**h.
anyhow i do feel brewster, woodburn, wilson have enough talent to make it. but they need 10 good games.

If you’re good enough then you’re old enough. Phil Foden is a good example, Pep trusts him in big games like Chelsea last week and that was a big game as they are going for the league and we’re playing the champions. If these kids are good enough then I think Jurgen has shown he’s not afraid to play them. Just because Brewster has won an U17 WC doesn’t automatically make him ready for the first team unfortunately.

Mortolfc- He did play 90 minutes in a dead rubber against Basel you’re right but contrary to what RedGT claims he has not been trusted in big games for City, infact he’s barely stepped foot on the pitch in the premier league.

Guardiola trusts his youth so much that in the recent game away at Burnley he only named six subs rather than put a youth player on the bench. Phil Foden played 1 minute against Chelsea.

It is with all big clubs. No one really plays the youth. only smaller clubs play youth.
As for Guardiola if he was incharge of barcelona in 2006, messi would not have seen the light of the day.

{Ed001's Note - simply not true, Pep would have played Messi because he was the perfect player for the system. It is not a problem when you are Messi level, as you will always get a chance. The players who are not at that level, the likes of Suso, Origi, Solanke for instance, they are the ones who struggle for regular football. With no decent quality at reserve level, as teams send out so many players on loan there is no real top players at reserve level any more, youngsters need to be in the first team to make real progress.}

Do you think limiting the amount of players teams can loan out would improve reserve level football and help youngsters develop more over a period of time rather than loan deals? Just interested as I’m not convinced that the loan system currently is very successful.

{Ed001's Note - personally I would prefer to cancel the loan system altogether as it is affecting lower leagues by tipping the balance of power towards teams that just happen to have a mate in a big club etc.}

Cheers ed. Yes can’t be fair if teams get better players due to contacts with large clubs etc. Wonder as well if more younger players would break through at clubs if reserve teams were stronger all around. It may help to keep youngsters grounded too.

Ed001 what do you make of Munich James loan for 2 years
And Costas 2 year loan move to juventus.

{Ed001's Note - in what way?}

Maybe the loaning of players should strictly be for clubs that are in financial trouble?

I think Can will develop to be a better player than he is today. That is why, Klopp wanted to keep him. His performances are not consistently good enough, but he has proven that he can be great at times. What I love about Can is his passion when he plays. Yes, he can give the ball away but at least he makes an effort to try to win it back. When he cuts out the mistakes and improve on his control, then he will be a massive player for any club. Physically, he's big and strong also. just a tad slow. Honestly, I feel that he's going to leave Liverpool. Good thing is, at least he will be leaving with dignity as he honoured his contract and has his right to choose the next path for his career.
