Sorry there hasn't been any loan updates in a while I have only just got over my Christmas and New year antics! Im not the man I use to be.

Living in Brighton I was lucky enough to see the game at the weekend. Brighton were boring with 11 men behind the ball most the game. As the home team it was disappointing to see them display zero adventure for most of the match.
I had a great view of the game and it has given me a new appreciation for what Henderson does, particularly in the first half.
Our attack was slow in the first half and their was very little movement as we struggled to get through an organised defence.
Henderson was always looking to get on the ball and make things happen but there were no options in-front of him. I thought I would point this out as I saw a lot of criticism of him after the game for which I could not understand. But TV never gives you the full picture.

Anyways enough of my rambling, heres the loan update

It was a relatively low key weekend for the young Reds out on Loan with several European Leagues not yet returning to action from their Winter breaks.



Harry Wilson missed Derby's disappointing 2-0 defeat to Leeds due to injury and is likely to miss their FA Cup replay with Southampton this week as-well.

Talking of Southampton Danny Ings missed the weekends win over Leicester again due to injury but new Boss Hasenhuttl is hopeful Ings will be back for the FA Cup tie.



Newly loaned Nathaniel Clyne has already made more starts for Bournemouth in 2 weeks then he had for the reds this entire season.

At the weekend the cherries faced Everton in what resulted as a 2-0 defeat, despite the result Clyne gave a solid performance and Cherries fans are happy with the early showings from their new Right Back.



Herbie Kane was in action at the weekend for Doncaster Rovers but it is a match they would like to forget. Kane was at the centre of a dominant display that saw the Rovers 2-0 with just 14 minutes to play.

However despite their domination they were left with nothing as they left the pitch. A complete collapse in the final 10 minutes saw Wycombe score 3 times including an injury time winner that left Rovers and Herbie Kane shell shocked at the full time whistle.



Having left Rangers during the Winter break Ovie Ejaria has now found himself on loan in the Championship at Reading.

Playing on the left of an attacking 3 Ejaria played for 75 minutes in a lively performance as Reading beat Nottingham Forest 2-0.



Young Reds stopper Kamil Grabara who impressed in pre season has joined AGF Aahus on loan for the second half of the season as he goes in search of regular game time.



Taiwo Awoniyi has left KAA Gent after an unsuccessful stint on loan and returned to Royal Excel Mouscron where he was on loan last season. Hopefully the move will bring a change in fortunes for the young striker who was a big hit for R. E. M last year.



Ben Woodburn has returned to Liverpool early after an unsuccessful stint with Championship club Sheffield United.



Shamal George's loan at Tranmere has finished with the young Red stopper playing 3 times for the League 2 team.



Corey Whelan has also returned to the club after a successful stint with Crewe where the young full back played 18 matches.



Connor Randall has returned to the club after his loan was cut short due to an injury picked up in September.

And that's your lot.

Thank you so much for the update, 23carragold. Your comments and updates are pure gold - and 24 karat at that.


2.) 15 Jan 2019 12:12:52
Good man carra.


3.) 15 Jan 2019 12:58:18
Conor Randall is still on the books!? How on earth.


4.) 15 Jan 2019 13:27:34
Surely if Corey Whelan played 18 times, he should have stayed on loan at Crewe? Seems silly not to extend that arrangement.


5.) 15 Jan 2019 15:37:26
Thank you mate.


6.) 15 Jan 2019 15:46:58
Thanks great effort xx.


7.) 16 Jan 2019 00:12:36
Well said Carra, I also though Hendo was excellent and the epitome of someone in complete control of the game.

I was hoping to pick your brains about a rumour doing the rounds in Brighton about Pascal Gross.

Is there any truth to the stories that we are interested in him?

I live in Brighton and my work have two tickets in the 1901 club so I have seen quite a few matches over the last couple years and Gross has always stood out.
He is very good on the ball and his assist record both for Brighton and in the Bundesliga before his move is brilliant.

He however is not the most mobile of players which I think is the reason a top club has not come in for him yet.
He has a lot to learn about what to do off the ball which is why I think Hughton sometimes drops him for the games against the Big Boys of the league.

Against a stubborn defence at Anfield I do think he could be a very good option.

Hi Carra,

I posted it a couple of days ago and Ed001 said that whilst he rated the player, there'd been no interest from Liverpool.

I posted it without very much knowledge of the player and he'd never really caught my eye, but maybe I was just watching Brighton in games where Hughton had decided not to play him.


2.) 13 Dec 2018 23:05:28
Would love to meet ya for a beverage one day bud.


3.) 14 Dec 2018 16:58:40
Thanks EP

JK are you local to Brighton then?

If not I will be at the Charity game this year if you are participating?


4.) 15 Dec 2018 16:08:28
Yes carra i am indeed fella, it is my home town :) Ill be around over the xmas period, we should try and catch a game together mate.

Goals, Assists, Clean Sheets, yellow cards and Match winning performances. It all happened this week for the Red Loanees.



For the third week in a row only half the on loan Reds featured as the others missed out for various reasons.

This week Ings, Ojo, Randall and Allan all missed out through injury, whilst Woodburn and George were joined on the unused substitute list by Adam Bogdan.



There is only one place to start as I am sure you are all curious as to how this seasons star loanee got on at the weekend. In case you didn't guess I am referring to Harry Wilson.

Wilson started on the right of a three man attack as Derby faced Wigan on Saturday afternoon. Despite putting in plenty of endeavour Wilson struggled to get into the game and was subbed in the 70th minute as Derby lead 1-0.

Derby held on to the victory which saw them move to 4th in the Championship.



It didn't take him long to shake off the ring rust after injury and now he really is back with a "Bang" as Grujic produced a MOTM display in Hertha Berlin's victory over Eintracht at the weekend.

Producing the most shots on target (Three) and making the most tackles (four) whilst also scoring the only goal of the game with a bullet header just before half time it really was an all action performance by the young Serb. It was so good in-fact that it prompted Manager Pal Dardai to describe him as 'the best midfielder Hertha have had in 20 years".

High praise for the young man. let's hope his form continues.



No goals this week for the high flying Herbie Kane he just had to make do with an assist instead.

Deployed on the right of midfield as Doncaster faced Bristol Rovers in League 1 the Young loanee run his opponents ragged on the flank as he contributed with a dominant performance as Doncaster won 4-0.

Kane's best moment came in the second half as he collected the ball on the right and twisted his marker inside out before producing a pinpoint cross that was nodded home.

It was his 6th assist of the season and with 5 goals to his name the young Red is having a great season in league 1.



Karius produced a MOTM performance as Besiktas drew 0-0 with Alanyaspor at the weekend. His second clean sheet in succession.

Besiktas earned a point largely due to the Heroics of the young German who produced several saves throughout the 90 minutes and two incredible stops at the end of each half, the second coming right at the death and would of surely been the match winner for Alanyaspor.



Back from injury and back in the starting 11 Ryan Kent returned this weekend for Rangers as they faced Dundee in the SPL.

A win would of seen Rangers go level with Celtic at the top of the SPL but it was a frustrating afternoon for Steven Gerrard's men.

Pegged back early Rangers found themselves back in the game in the 21st minute as Dundee were also reduced to 10 men; Rangers however could not capitalise on their numerical advantage as the game stayed 1-1.

Kent was understandably rusty and only played the first 45 minutes in a frustrating display. The Reds other loanee at Ibrox 'Ovie Ejaria' entered the game with 20 minutes to go but like Kent struggled to make an impact.



Corey Whelan made his 15th start of the season for League 2 Crewe as they fell to a 2-0 defeat to Oldham. The young red completed the full 90 at Right back.



It was another frustrating afternoon for Taiwo Awoniyi as the young Nigerian was only used to run the clock down appearing for the final moments as Gent beat Eupen 2-0.

Speaking of Gent 'Arroyo' completed another full 90 for the Gent U21's as they as they beat KV Oostende 5-0.

And that's your lot :)

PS 3-0 Tonight to the mighty reds.

6.) 12 Dec 2018 00:35:28
I already know most of the infos you put in these updates, but the way you put them up, the words, the phrases, how you lay them out made them so interesting and lovely to read, and they are getting better and better. Keep it up Carra. I believe you can write some good and interesting reviews as well. Thanks as always, Carra!


 

 

04 Dec 2018 16:07:24
It was never in doubt!

Origi's last gasp winner rightly grabbed all LFC headlines at the weekend but let's not forget the loanees were in action to.

Lets start with those who did not feature and with the weekend off most like got a head start on their Christmas shopping.

Ben Woodburn was again not in the Sheffield United squad, the youngster has really struggled for a place and there are reports LFC are looking to cut his loan short.

Corey Whelan did not have a match this weekend, whilst Ings, Kent, Randall and Allan all missed out through injury. Shamal George was once again an unused sub.



Hes at it again.

Harry Wilson has been compared to Fernando Torres for the way he looks but if he keeps banging the goals in like he did at the weekend he will soon be compared based on performances too!

Wilson produced a MOTM display as Derby won 2-1 away to Swansea with the Welsh youngster netting both their goals.

With the game at 0-0 the Welsh wizard picked up the ball 25 yards from goal and hit an unstoppable drive into the top corner. He added his second ten minutes later as he won back possession, beat a defender and fired home into the bottom corner.



Karius had a night to forget in the Europa midweek being at fault for two early goals as Besiktas had to battle back from 2-0 to beat Sarsborg 3-2.

However the German retained his place at the weekend for the Istanbul derby against Galatasaray and he did not disappoint. He made a string of fine saves in a fiery derby as Besiktas beat Galatasaray 1-0.



Grujic continued his comeback from injury at the weekend as he again played the full 90 as Herta Berlin took on Hannover. The young Serbian was part of a midfield three that produced a dominant performance as Hertha went on to win the game 2-0.



Ojo made a rare start for Stade de Reims at the weekend, just his second of the season as the French side took on Marseille in Ligue 1.

Despite having more shots than any other player Ojo was unable to make the breakthrough and was subbed with 25 to go as the game fizzled out for a 0-0 draw.



Awoniyi again did not start for Gent this weekend however he did make an impact.

At 2-0 against Lokeren with 10 to go the manager took a last roll of the dice and threw the young forward into the mix. As the pressure grew the Lokeren defence finally cracked conceding twice in the final minute of the game for an eventual 2-2 draw.



All good things shall come to an end. After a fantastic streak of 5 goals in 5 games Herbie Kanes run of goals finished this weekend as Doncaster faced Charlton in the FA Cup.

However the young Red still gave a very good performance as Doncaster beat Charlton 2-0 to move into the third round of the FA Cup.



Ejaria was at the heart of midfield and at the heart of everything as Rangers took on Hearts in the SPL this weekend.

A feisty affair saw the Gers reduced to 10 men but that did not stop them taking all 3 points in a hard fought victory that saw them leapfrog Celtic and go top of the SPL.



Adam Bogdan had a weekend to forget as Hibs lost 3-0 to Kilmarnock in what has been described as a dire performance from the club.



And it was a Monday night to remember for Arroyo as he continues to learn his trade in the Gent U21 squad. Playing the full 90 at full back the young red put in an impressive performance as Gent beat table toppers Standard Liege 3-1.

And that's your lot.

1.) 04 Dec 2018 16:27:06
Thanks for the update Carra.

I just don't see it, i can't understand why people think Wilson looks like Torres, they look nothing alike. It baffles me!


2.) 04 Dec 2018 17:01:01
Thank you very much carra.


3.) 04 Dec 2018 19:23:29
Wilson looks a real player as far as I’m concerned. The boy has the lot and he’s stood head and shoulders above the rest at Derby.


4.) 05 Dec 2018 02:55:14
Has anyone watched wilson's full performances or jist seeing the goals? Anyone have any inaight into his game and where he may fit in our system.


5.) 05 Dec 2018 09:21:42
im a welsh fan, Wilson and Woodburn are poor when not surrounded by talent which is the worry, although LFC full of it, you'd expect them to lead when welsh team is full of youngsters. ie the Albania friendly game which we lost. Their performances, decision making (which is mark of great player) and positional play have been poor. Wilson gets the headlines like he did against ireland with the goal but he's so ineffective for large parts of the game. hopefully he will improve but he's beyond the age of a youngster, he's been in wales team since 15 but never really got going . if you really want to see a player at LFC. Klopp should keep tabs on BROOKS outstanding player. completely tears defences apart, leads the team like a gerrard used to.


6.) 05 Dec 2018 19:18:52
I’m not sure international football is a good marker for young talents to be honest mate. Even low level national teams are made up of seasoned pros who, despite playing at a lower level domestically, know how to manipulate younger, less experienced players. I’ve not seen any of the Wales games, just an opinion. That said, anyone seen any Derby games? The words ‘won back possession, beat a defender and fired into the bottom corner’ made me think Klopp might like the player he gets back next preseason.


7.) 05 Dec 2018 23:53:21
Who’s his manager at International level? The hardly inspirational Ryan Giggs. He’s doing very well at Derby, he’s grabbed the chance with both hands. I couldn’t care less if he’s poor for Wales, club football matters more.


8.) 06 Dec 2018 00:40:42
@riomazy which brooks are you referring to? Brooks-lennon has transferred to Salt Lake City so unlikely to ever be back.


9.) 06 Dec 2018 00:43:11
oh sorry I think I misread your post. Im guessing you are talking about David Brooks who plays for Bournemouth?


 

 

27 Nov 2018 12:13:46
Premier League football was back with a bang this weekend as the Reds put to bed any fears of International break fatigue with a comfortable 3-0 win over Watford.

But that's enough about them, the loanees also returned to action hoping to follow the example set by Jurgen Klopp's high flying men.



9 Reds featured in this weekends action with Ings, Kent and Randall all missed out through injury. Woodburn and George were not used by their respective clubs and therefore featured for the Liverpool U23's to keep up their fitness.



He's been out for two months but Grujic is back and gave an impressive performance in the heart of midfield as Hertha Berlin drew 3-3 with Hoffenheim. Thrown straight in at the deep end Grujic played the entire 90 and looked like he had never been away.



Kane can't stop scoring! And no I am not talking about Harry. Herbie Kane netted yet another goal for Doncaster following his outrageous strike in the FA Cup a couple weeks ago.

With the score even in the 52nd minute Kane rose like a salmon to put away a well delivered cross to give Doncaster the lead. Unfortunately they could not hold on to the lead as the score finished 1-1.



Another Red scored at the weekend but this time it is a much more familiar site as Harry Wilson yet again found his name on the score sheet.

Trailing 1-0 in the first half Wilson got the Rams back into the match on the half hour mark with a well taken volley to take his tally to 5 for the season.

The Rams went on to win 2-1 and stay in the hunt for promotion to the Premier League.



Ovie Ejaria started for Rangers against Livingstone as Steven Gerrards men looked to continue climbing the table.

It was a tidy display from Ejaria who played for 80 minutes as the Gers won 3-0 moving them up to second and just two points behind Celtic.



Staying with players North of the Border Adam Bogdan again featured for Hibs as they faced Dundee on Saturday.

It was an entertaining game for the spectators as the match finished 2-2 in what has been described as an end to end game.



Corey Whelan and Crewe had an afternoon to forget as they were hammered 3-0 by Crawley Town in League 2. Whelan stayed on for the full 90 which must mean he was not the worst player on the pitch (silver linings) .



Ahead of the weekends action Karius posted a video of himself on his instagram titled 'Back to Best' which featured a montaged of all his best saves in a Besiktas shirt. To me I thought he had set himself up to fail but the man proved me wrong as he produced a confident display as Besiktas beat Ankaragucu 4-1. (Just a shame it wasn't a clean sheet ;) ) .

But on a serious note I think I speak for all Reds when I say I hope the good form continues and he manages to move on from the nightmare night a few months ago in some small cup competition.



Awoniyi again came off the bench as KAA Gent drew 0-0 with Antwerp. This was the fourth game in a row he came off the bench but also it is the fourth time in doing so that he has failed to score.



Last but not least young Full Back Arroyo featured for Gent U21's as they drew 2-2 with Sporting Charleroi.



And that's your lot.

Good man thanks.


6.) 27 Nov 2018 23:02:26
If you are wondering why it looks a bit more article like nowadays it’s because I write for a couple sites (don’t worry Ed’s I won’t promote a rival 🙂 )
I do the weekly loan write up and so copy what I have wrote already as opposed to writing it twice.


7.) 28 Nov 2018 03:39:37
I wondered why your posts looked familiar.!

{Ed001's Note - he is going up in the world! Or maybe I should be saying down as writing it on here is clearly the pinnacle....}


8.) 28 Nov 2018 06:36:58
It is Ed! Best site around!

But I’m not going to turn down a bit of extra pocket change the wife need more money to spend aimlessly 🙂.

{Ed001's Note - thank you mate, I am just glad to see you are doing well. You have been doing us a favour on here and I am glad you are getting the rewards for it now. Actually, if you don't mind and have a chance to do so, would it be possible for you to write an article explaining how others could go about getting paid writing gigs? I was thinking there are a lot of people on here who say they want to do it, but I would understand if you don't have the time or don't want to. It was just a thought as so many ask me and I honestly don't have a clue as I only write for here and have never even tried to get other gigs. Or even just a tip or two would be helpful. I don't think it is still possible to do what we did here any more, as search engines now have so many of their results 'sponsored' it is difficult to just build a following for your own site without spending money on advertising. We have never had an advertising budget to advertise, so we had to rely on word of mouth and getting ranked highly on search engines. So I am not sure any advice I have for them would still be relevant!}


9.) 28 Nov 2018 16:19:45
Hi Ed,

I replied to your post this morning however I was on my phone and these things don't always send for whatever reason. I just wanted to make sure you got my message and that you didn't think I was ignoring your reply.

{Ed001's Note - I didn't get it sorry mate.}


10.) 28 Nov 2018 17:23:48
To be honest Ed I found my way very quickly and a bit by fluke if anything.
I follow various Liverpool sites on Twitter and every now and again these sites will advertise for new writers.
On two occasions I replied to adverts and sent over a piece they might like, luckily in both instances they did.
For a while I then wrote weekly pieces for each site for free but after a while I negotiated a small % based on how many clicks the article gets.

And you don't need to thank me for contributing to the site I enjoy it and I am looking forward to finally getting to meet some of you at the next Charity match. As long as I don't get injured again.

{Ed001's Note - even if you are injured you should still go along and cheer on my team to victory.....

As for the rest, cheers mate, just thinking it might help some of these on here looking to get into it. I mean they can write articles for us for free to establish themselves, but the idea is it is just to give them somewhere to show they have published work when they apply for paid work later.}


11.) 29 Nov 2018 07:51:06
Nice one carra, your work is always appreciated! also, glad to hear you are getting recognised elsewhere as well, that's brilliant mate :) .

It was not the busiest of weeks for the Reds on loan to which I can only assume they were allowed time off to complete their Christmas Shopping.

A season high 10 loanees did not feature this weekend with Grujic, Allan, Kent and Randall all missing out through injury whilst Woodburn, Bogdan, Whelan and George were not selected for their games.

Anderson Arroyo who is currently playing his trade with Gent U21's did not feature this weekend as they did not have a game to be played.

The 10th Red not to feature was Ovie Ejaria who has had his loan spell with Rangers terminated early. Ejaria scored twice and featured 28 times for the Gers but in recent months his game time has reduced considerably after a promising start to the season.



Harry Wilson was in action on Monday Night as Derby faced Nottingham Forest in a Play-off spot clash. However despite the pre game hype the match did not live up to its billing and fizzled out to an eventual 0-0 draw.

Derby currently sit 6th in a play off position and are currently 6 points adrift of the automatic promotion spots.



Back from injury and back with a bang! Danny Ings returned for Southampton this weekend and provided the spark they desperately needed as they look to claw their way out of the Premier League drop zone.

Nobody gave Southampton a chance this weekend as they played host to Arsenal who were on a 22 game unbeaten streak.

But football is a funny game and Southampton clearly had not read the pre match script as they twice took the lead through Ings on the side of each half. As the game looked like it was heading for a draw Saints scored a late winner with 5 minutes remaining to eventually win the game 3-2.



Move over Harry as the real Kane scores again!

Young midfielder Herbie Kane netted his 6th goal in 7 games as Doncaster cruised to a 3-0 win over Scunthorpe in League one.

Kane scored his sides second goal of the game winning back possession deep in the opposition half before producing a tidy lob over the Scunthorpe keeper.

Kane produced another all action display that lead to him being awarded MOTM.



Karius had a busy time in goal as Besiktas played host to Trabzonspor in what was a lively affair.

It was end to end traffic for most of the match with the game eventually finishing 2-2.



Awoniyi was again a late sub introduced with 10 minutes to go as Gent were trailing 2-0 to Charleroi.

Awoniyi's introduction did not have the desired effect and the game finished 2-0.



Ojo was used to run the clock down as he came on in stoppage time as his side Stade de Reims beat Strasbourg 2-1.

And that's your lot :)

3.) 19 Dec 2018 17:25:15
has Kane really gotten 6 in his last 7! I couldn’t quite believe that stat so I checked online and it says he only has 5 in 25 appearances this season. Not doubting you Carra mate but just wanting to make sure it’s 6 in his last 7 because that’s very very impressive.


4.) 19 Dec 2018 17:44:06
His last goal was not added. He had a really slow start after wich he can't stop scoring. I would say its luck that strikes him, but I may be mistaken.


5.) 19 Dec 2018 19:22:15
Thanks Carra mate.

Your sign off reminds me of a time at Uni when I accidentally misordered onions. I thought I'd ordered a bag, but had actually ordered a tonne!

I was wondering where I was going to sleep that night as the onions were filling the whole house!

I was so pleased to hear the delivery driver say -

That shallot!

:)


 

 

03 Dec 2018 16:58:58
Worked with a few Evertonians today. They were absolutely sick with how they lost the game.

To be honest I do feel their pain but we won so its funny

"Its Sunday night and he scored against the Sh*^t£"

"Divock Origi".

Origi: The Musical.

Let's make it happen.


 

 

06 Nov 2018 11:43:06
Another week goes by and the Mighty Reds remain undefeated, but its not all about them! let's take a look at how the loanee's faired in what was a more productive week than last for the young Reds.

Firstly the Reds who did not feature in the weekends action. Shamal George remained an unused sub for Tranmere Rovers whilst Allan, Ojo and Awoniyi all did not feature for their respective clubs. Grujic and Connor Randall are both still sidelined with injury.

Now for those that did.

Wilson continued his fine form this weekend with another goal as Derby beat Birmingham 3-1.In the 55th minute Wilson lined up a free kick at an acute angle to the right of the goal and deceived everyone as he bent it home at the near post.

Wilson was again deployed in the roaming role behind the striker and was a key player for Frank Lampards men. Klopp has struggled to fill this particular role since Coutinho left the club so maybe the development of Wilson is one to keep an eye on.



Danny Ings mini goal drought came to an end at the weekend as he netted a first half penalty against Manchester City at the Etihad on Sunday. Unfortunately for Ings and Southampton this is as good as it got as the Saints were thumped 6-1 by the Manchester city steamroller.

Speculation is growing that Mark Hughes will soon be replaced at St Mary's.



Ben Woodburn (Remember him) made a surprise return to the Sheffield Utd squad at the weekend after spending 6 weeks in the wilderness.

Woodburn started on the bench but came on as a late sub as the Blades lost 1-0 to Nottingham Forest.



The ever present Herbie Kane completed another 90 minutes for League 1 Doncaster as they lost 2-0 to Charlton Athletic on Saturday. Kane batted hard and was a dominant presence throughout the 90 but was unable to get rewards for his graft.



Corey Whelan had a weekend to forget for Crewe as he was hooked at half time in what was a poor team performance. The manager put it down to a 'Tactical switch' but it its never nice to leave the field with 45 minutes still to play.

Crewe lost the game 2-0 to Northampton.



It was back to winning ways for Rangers and the on loan Reds Ejaria and Kent who took on St Mirren at the weekend.

In what was a pretty routine victory the young Reds both featured for the full 90 as Rangers won the tie 2-0.



Staying North of the border it was not a great day for Adam Bogdan and Hibs who lost 1-0 to St Johnstone on Saturday.



Only one Red featured outside the UK this weekend and it was the man never far from the Headlines Loris Karius.

Karius kept his place in goal for Besiktas as they faced league leaders Basaksehir in what turned out to be a disappointing day for the team. A win would of closed the gap on the team at the top but it was not to be as Besiktas continued their poor form with a 1-0 defeat.

Besiktas now sit 6th in the league and on current form continue to slip down the table.

And that's your lot :)

Thank you carra, great read.

Nice one Carra 👍🏻.

Wilson had an excellent game. He came close on two other free kicks and played a great through ball only for the keeper to save.
I hope he can keep it up for the rest of the season.


4.) 06 Nov 2018 13:09:18
Cheers carra, much appreciated mate.


5.) 06 Nov 2018 13:29:24
Wilson hit the post with another free kick too. I watched the highlights on YouTube and almost every clip starts with him driving at the opposite defence with the ball. Impressive.

Good stuff.

Another week, another win for the reds; but how did the Liverpool Loanee's fair?

It was a quieter week for those on loan with just 10 players featuring in the weekends action.

Ben Woodburn continues to be a growing cause for concern as the promising youngster was left out of the Sheffield Utd squad for a 6th consecutive game, whilst Shamal George and Sheyi Ojo were also unused.

Marko Grujic and Connor Randall are both still sidelined and Adam Bogdan's Hibs did not have a match at the weekend.

Karius and Besiktas got back to winning ways after 4 games without a win (losing 3) as they thumped Rizespor 4-1 in the Monday night game.

Karius had very little to do other than pick the ball out of the back of his net as Rizespor rarely threatened the home side over the course of the game.

Anderson Arroyo continued his fine form for Gent U21s last night as they picked up a 2-1 home win against Zulte-Waregem.

The Gent Mens team won by the identical scoreline at the weekend but Awoniyi was a lot less involved. A late cameo was all that was rewarded to the youngster for a second week running.

Young Full-Back Corey Whelan found himself on the scoresheet this weekend as he opened the scoring for Crewe in the 70th minute. With only his second senior goal to date Whelan controlled a cross field pass with his right before slotting home with his left. Crewe went on to beat Grimsby 2-0.

Kent and Ejaria had a very disappointing weekend as Rangers lost the League Cup semi final to Aberdeen at Hampden Park.

Both Red loanees played the full 90 but were unable to create the breakthrough as the Gers slumped to a 1-0 defeat.

The goals have dried up for Danny Ings and Southampton as they fired a blank for the third game in a row. Fellow strugglers Newcastle visited St Mary's at the weekend and left with a point as the game finished 0-0.

Harry Wilson was not on the scoresheet this weekend but he did get an assist as Derby drew 1-1 with Middlesborough.

A win would of seen Derby go top and they were minutes away from achieving their aim only to be undone by a comical own goal by defender Jayden Bogle.

Wilson was deployed in the playmaker role of a midfield 3 and had a very effective and productive evening.

Herbie Kane made his 17th start of the season for Doncaster as they lost 2-1 to Coventry on Saturday. Not the result he would of wanted but the young midfielder continues to impress whilst on loan.

Last but not least Allan Rodrigues was back in the Eintracht squad after being left out of the Europa game mid week.

Allan came on for the final 20 and helped his team battle back as they drew 101 with Nurnberg.

And that's your lot :)

He is still young Woodburn but it is peculiar he hasn't been able to kick on in the last couple seasons. So much promise and potential. Wilson on the other hand has been consistent and scored a few worldies. Really excited to see him in the team in the coming seasons.


2.) 30 Oct 2018 16:42:08
NICE! Thanks Carra.

What's going on at Shef Utd?


3.) 30 Oct 2018 16:48:56
Thanks Carra.

To quote a Derby friend of mine, “Harry could walk into your midfield right now. He is that good. ”

I’m not sure I agree but I think he is playing every game at the Rams in the style that he knows Klopp likes. He is playing already with the high tempo pass and attack that is needed and is always the first one to chase back when the ball is lost. Very positive signs.


4.) 30 Oct 2018 17:56:19
Thank you very much carra.


5.) 30 Oct 2018 18:21:11
Thank you Carra!
ED001 if I may - is Wilson finally a loanee youngster that will come back and really succeed?
Your hunch as things stand?

{Ed001's Note - he is certainly the one that is doing enough to give himself a chance. The most likely is he gets sold though I hope not as I don't see another youngster out on loan impressing like him.}


6.) 30 Oct 2018 23:04:16
Thanks for that ed.
Does make you bit depressed for the state of the youth teams doesn't it.
At least we have TAA as one success story.

{Ed001's Note - that is not so bad at this level, there are very few coming through from top clubs youth teams directly into the first teams.}


7.) 31 Oct 2018 04:16:31
The super successful teams always have youth players breaking through. I think it's something klopp wants to do and Wilson, Woodburn, brewster and solanke. Not to mention Curtis Jones all have themselves in with a shout.


8.) 31 Oct 2018 07:53:13
Hi Ed001, do you think that would send a bad message and maybe dishearten young players from joining if Wilson was sold? I mean what else is the lad supposed to do, consistently impressing on loan, i'd be very disappointed if he doesn't get some sort of look in next season.

{Ed001's Note - it would certainly make me wonder if he doesn't get a chance and if I was a parent I would be considering my options if it was my child being offered a place. And if I would do that, then that would be the same for lots of others.}


9.) 31 Oct 2018 14:28:51
I hope he gets a shot in place of Lallana next season, he’s far more direct and dangerous in open play and I think it’s time to give him a chance given how he’s performed on loan.

I actually think he’ll make a perfect backup to Shaqiri. He’s capable of playing in midfield, at 10 or out wide, scores goals and has a wicked free kick. all very similar traits to Shaqiri even if unproven at the very top.

Liverpool were back in action this weekend after the international break as were 11 of the 14 Liverpool players out on loan.

Ben Woodburn continues to be overlooked at Sheffield United as he was not selected for the match day squad for the fourth straight week. In a surprise twist Woodburn actually played for the Liverpool U23s for an hour this weekend in order to keep up his fitness.



Shamal George was again an unused sub for Tranmere as he once again warmed his favourite spot on the bench. Unfortunately for George the game was not even a good watch at Tranmere drew 0-0 with Yeovil.



Allan was left out the matchday squad as Eintracht thumped bottom of the table Fortuna 7-1 on Friday night.



Anderson Arroyo is continuing his development featuring for the Gent u21 team as they drew 1-1 with Sporting Lokeren.



It has been a frustrating couple seasons for Kent with loan moves which did not work out but at Rangers he finally seems to of found his feet and shooting boots!

Kent scored the opener as Rangers won 4-1 away to Hamilton in what was an all round great display by the young winger.

Ejaria also featured alongside Kent producing a dominant display at the centre of the Rangers midfield.



Ojo again started on the bench for Stade De Reims but this time his introduction to the game had the desired effect.

At 1-0 down Ojo was introduced with 30 minutes to play. Ojo produces a lively display and it was his shot that was parried which lead to the equaliser as the game finished 1-1. Hopefully this performance will lead to Ojo getting his first start in the coming weeks.



Danny Ings started but had a pretty tame afternoon as Southampton drew 0-0 with Bournemouth in a South Coast derby. Ings would of been hoping to do more against one of his former clubs.



As stated above Sheffield United chose not to play Woodburn and as a result Harry Wilson ensured they suffered. Wilson started and played the full 90 in a lively performance as Derby beat Sheffield Utd 2-1.



Bogdan's run of 4 clean sheets in a row came to an end as Hibs came up against Celtic. Instead it was 4 goals conceded as Hibs lost the game 4-2. Despite the result Bogdan produced a string of fine saves and cannot be faulted for his display.



Herbie Kane was subbed after an hour as Doncaster drew 3-3 with Gillingham which was probably his quietest performance to date.



Corey Whelan enjoyed his second win at Crewe as they defeated Stevenage 1-0 on Saturday. Whelan completed the full 90 minutes.



There was speculation that Karius was to be dropped this weekend as the Turkish SuperLig returned but the young German kept his place in the team, however that was as good as it got for Karius as he was unable to prevent Besiktas losing 2-0 to Goztepe. The only good news to take from the game is that neither goal can be pinned on him.



And last but not least Awoniyi got to taste victory for the first time in a while as he made a late cameo for Gent. Already 3-0 up Awoniyi entered the game with 10 minutes to go as Gent went on to eventually win 4-0.


And that's your lot :)

{Ed025's Note - great stuff as usual carra...cheers mate..


1.) 23 Oct 2018 10:51:22
Cheers carra, appreciated mate.


2.) 23 Oct 2018 11:12:32
Thanks carra lad.


3.) 23 Oct 2018 11:31:14
Personally think carras reports should have their own page? So we can catch them when they’re missed, and also able to see the progress each week of the players.
Thanks Carra.


4.) 23 Oct 2018 12:46:44
My own page on this site would be something I would tell my grandkids :)


5.) 23 Oct 2018 13:52:26
Cheers Carra, your own page would be very well deserved. Fantastic updates.

I'm glad Kent and Wilson's loans are going well, would love if one of them played a part as a rotation player next year. Cover for Mane would be nice as Shaqiri doesn't seem comfortable on the left.

Was shocked when I read online that Woodburn played for Liverpool u23, might be time for a recall. I still think a loan would suit him, but he needs first time football.


6.) 23 Oct 2018 17:59:11
I second the Carra report page, would stop the questions about how youngsters are progressing if you could click on a link, just a thought.


7.) 23 Oct 2018 18:09:33
I like that idea of a carra page, would be great if it can be done. Good suggestion benny.

Off topic but benny I'll get whatsapp in the next few days mate, just getting my phone sorted and needed a bit of help with it because its new, blags my head to be honest lol. Will hit you up on the the next couple of days when I get somebody to get it sorted for me (probably tomorrow)


8.) 23 Oct 2018 18:22:10
No rush Salah lad.


9.) 24 Oct 2018 14:56:51
Great update as ever, Allan was actually on the bench in the game Carra mentions under his alternative name of Souza, his full name is Allan Rodrigues de Souza. He never got on the pitch though.

Matip was on the bench V Brighton so he could well be back in the starting 11 for the Palace match.

To be honest Ed I found my way very quickly and a bit by fluke if anything.
I follow various Liverpool sites on Twitter and every now and again these sites will advertise for new writers.
On two occasions I replied to adverts and sent over a piece they might like, luckily in both instances they did.
For a while I then wrote weekly pieces for each site for free but after a while I negotiated a small % based on how many clicks the article gets.

And you don't need to thank me for contributing to the site I enjoy it and I am looking forward to finally getting to meet some of you at the next Charity match. As long as I don't get injured again.

23carragold

{Ed001's Note - even if you are injured you should still go along and cheer on my team to victory.....

As for the rest, cheers mate, just thinking it might help some of these on here looking to get into it. I mean they can write articles for us for free to establish themselves, but the idea is it is just to give them somewhere to show they have published work when they apply for paid work later.}

Hi Ed,

I replied to your post this morning however I was on my phone and these things don't always send for whatever reason. I just wanted to make sure you got my message and that you didn't think I was ignoring your reply.

It is Ed! Best site around!

But I’m not going to turn down a bit of extra pocket change the wife need more money to spend aimlessly 🙂.

23carragold

{Ed001's Note - thank you mate, I am just glad to see you are doing well. You have been doing us a favour on here and I am glad you are getting the rewards for it now. Actually, if you don't mind and have a chance to do so, would it be possible for you to write an article explaining how others could go about getting paid writing gigs? I was thinking there are a lot of people on here who say they want to do it, but I would understand if you don't have the time or don't want to. It was just a thought as so many ask me and I honestly don't have a clue as I only write for here and have never even tried to get other gigs. Or even just a tip or two would be helpful. I don't think it is still possible to do what we did here any more, as search engines now have so many of their results 'sponsored' it is difficult to just build a following for your own site without spending money on advertising. We have never had an advertising budget to advertise, so we had to rely on word of mouth and getting ranked highly on search engines. So I am not sure any advice I have for them would still be relevant!}

I don’t think we will see him integrated until next season. After a long injury lay off Klopp will want to get him back up to speed with the u23s etc. It will be a big pre season for him next summer and hopefully he kicks on from there.

Every game is winnable and we have shown we can beat any team on our day. However each game should be treated as a Cup final and I am looking no further than Southampton.

One game at a time, asses the result, then move on to the next one.
