Ed1, if you're around .

Harry Wilson has scored 19 and made 9 assists in his last 28 u23 games. And he's u23 captain, of cos.

But he hasn't been given a chance at first team level yet. If I'm not wrong, he's not even trained with the 1st team like some of the others.

Is he not rated highly by Klopp? Is he thought to have a future at the club?

Appreciate your input. :)

{Ed001's Note - he struggled with an early rise to fame, with a full cap etc, so he is being held back now to allow him to develop fully away from the glare of the spotlight. Next season I would expect him to move full time to the first team squad.}

Understandable ed, but is this not a good time to give him an opportunity with Mane missing? Or is it that Ojo is rated a lot higher by Klopp?
Seen very little of wilson tbh but read that his form has been excellent wheras Ojo has been injured this season so seems odd that Ojo isfavoured. seems bit of a kick in the teeth for Harry Wilson

{Ed001's Note - it is not a kick in the teeth, he needed to grow up a bit after his breakthrough with Wales. Now he is being given the chance to do so and learn to play other systems. Ojo is different, he was brought in from outside, with expectations and promises, so he has to be treated differently. Wilson just needs to show patience and keep doing what he is doing and he will get a chance. This is about maturing and developing as a person now. How he handles this will decide how his career develops.}

Okay ed, hopefully he can do that and break into the first team, cheers!

{Ed001's Note - fingers crossed, the lad has the talent, he just needs to prove he has the application to match now.}

While we're on the subject of young players ed1, any idea what has happened with Brannagan at all? I thought he looked the part, but am worried he won't make it now. Has he failed to make the step up, or any attitude problems maybe?
I was hoping to see him against Plymouth last weekend, but then the optimist in me thought maybe Klopp didn't pick him because he will be loaned in Jan and he didn't want him to potentially cup-tied for his new team?
Any info at all; much appreciated.

{Ed001's Note - to be honest, I think he will be moved on in the summer, sadly, judging by what I am told. Shame as we could have done with his setpiece delivery this season!}

11 Jan 2017 11:23:50
Really? Gutted about that.
Do you know why at all ed?
He seemed to have pretty much everything needed to make the grade, in my opinion.
And, yes, he was excellent at set pieces too. Definitely something we could improve on.
What's your view on the player?

{Ed001's Note - I like him, but he just wasn't making the progress from what I was told. However, the reason we let so many go from the youth set up was to increase each player's chances. Every player in the U23 set up has a chance to make it, so he still has the second half of the season left to earn a spot for next season.}

11 Jan 2017 13:07:19
That's fair enough then, I suppose. Shame though, as I really thought this would be his breakthrough year.
Yeah, you're right, hopefully he can step it up and turn it around for himself before the end of the season.
I wonder if a loan move would have helped him at all? I know Wigan were mentioned as a possibility; perhaps more regular playing time here (or elsewhere) would have seem him improve to the level needed?
Thanks for your response anyway ed; always a pleasure gaining some insight from you. Appreciate it, and all the graft you put into this site. Thaks!

{Ed001's Note - I am not a fan of the loan system personally. It very rarely benefits the player in making their way at the parent club. It might have helped him, but I have my doubts as Wigan are a mess.

You are very welcome, though I will not be about so much for a while after tomorrow. I am going down to Torremolinos on Friday to meet up with Ed003 then flying to the UK on Saturday to spend a week visiting my daughter and my best mate, hopefully find time to see other family as well. Then I come back here just to pack my stuff to return home. Not the best timing as it is January, but I had to go back to sort out my visa before February.}

No, I can totally understand that. I'm just torn between the idea of fighting for his place here and the opportunity to get some more game time elsewhere.
I guess it's the right call to not send him to Wigan though, if they're in such a dire state.
Good stuff; hope you enjoy the break and have a nice catch up with your family and stuff. Love the Reds, but family is definitely the most important thing in the world.
Sounds busy, but I'm sure it'll be worth all the hassle mate.
Enjoy and be safe on your travels.

It's a tough business and it's clear with Can, Grujic and now it seems Ejaria to try break into a starting role he's fighting a tough battle.
