Too early.

Everyone needs at least another 3 months without any sort of football.

When supporters first reaction to the knowledge that they are about to head back in for pre-season training already is "FFS" then it is way too soon.

It is 'Christmas every day' syndrome.

Be interested in seeing where Bobby Clark fits in our system in PS if he’s given a chance. I’d forgotten we’d signed him and he was very highly respected.

I suspect he's a year or so behind the like of Gordon and Morton who were involved in preseason last year, if he impresses in preseason he might get some games in the cups if we get some ties against the lower league sides.

We have quite a few young players who have a decent amount of first team minutes under their belts it will be interesting to see who gets minutes going forward. It looks like Neco Williams could be off, but there is Ramsay and Carvalho both of whom we have just signed, Rhys Williams who played a bit the season before last, Morton and Gordon and a few others who impressed in last preseason or two.

I thought we might loan Neco out to Fulham for the season to see how he performs in the Prem. I always look forward to seeing the youth players get minutes with the star players.

There has always been talk of Neco leaving for regular games, I read somewhere we don't want to loan him out again (obviously may not be true). But given the fee being mentioned for him to leave is £10-15m which is more than we paid for Ramsay, that would seem good business. Keeping 3 young right backs wanting games happy isn't feasible

It’s looking increasingly likely he’ll be sold but I thought his value could rise even more if he has a good season on loan in the Prem.

Makes it clear why getting transfers in early is so important.

Man U still yet to strike a blow.

Lot of travelling in that pre season.

Much prefer we did our pre seasons in the UK or in one country and city if abroad.

Especially ahead of a season that will be as congested as the first half of this one will be.

I don't like the idea of a preseason friendly against Man Utd. There's no such thing as a friendly against them.

Also another game the day after the community shield, I assume they will be two different teams/squads but still seems odd

Agree with you, would also prefer we avoided that kind of travel, but also think it’s good to give fans from other parts of the world a chance to see a live game.

I’m based in the US, and when they come over here, the local fans really get hyped up for the games- most LFC fans never get a chance to go to anfield. Would be a bad message to the fans, if we didn’t tour in pre season, while every other club does.

When the lads were over in 2015 I watched the match on Friday night in Brisbane then flew 1700km the next day to Melbourne then drove just under 1000km to Adelaide along the Great Ocean Rd for our match on Monday night & then on Tuesday I did the same all over again to get home. An epic road trip with my son.

Yeah I know we have a global fanbase and all that, but I think we should then have a good chunk of the pre season in that country if we want to go abroad. Pick one region and make that the abroad part of the pre season. Less time wasted having to fly between countries that way.

Looking at our pre season this year we are in five countries (Thailand, Singapore, Germany, Austria, and England) in 27 days with six games and training sandwiched in between the travelling.

Throw in the Pl season starting earlier than usual this season and an awful lot more congestion of games between the start of August and the start of the sports wash World Cup and it just seems like very little down time for the players given many of them went straight into a cycle of international games as soon as last season ended.

We are only 10 days away from pre season starting.

That was a serious rendition. Brought a lump to my throat again. Why have we not returned to Australia? Huge fan base that probably buy genuine replicas rather than knock offs.

As I said we had 3 generations at the MCG for that match, my Dad passed away later that year & we played that at his funeral, so in effect my Dad was singing at his own funeral. Still gets me to this day.

I’ll put his in here as I’m keen to see which youth players we get to see this PS.

https://www.facebook.com/groups/1396...4538150460152/

A look at a few of the best academy prospects to watch at Liverpool this season...🔴

𝗞𝗔𝗜𝗗𝗘 𝗚𝗢𝗥𝗗𝗢𝗡 - 𝘄𝗶𝗻𝗴𝗲𝗿, 𝟭𝟳 𝘆𝗲𝗮𝗿𝘀 𝗼𝗹𝗱

OK, we’ll start with an obvious one, and one who made his first steps into senior football with Liverpool last season. Gordon doesn’t turn 18 until October, but he has already played in the Premier League, scored at Anfield in the FA Cup against Shrewsbury and started at Arsenal in the semi-final of the Carabao Cup.

A smart, skilful winger with excellent finishing ability, the former Derby County youngster is perhaps the brightest prospect at the club right now, outside of first-teamers such as Jones, Harvey Elliott and Fabio Carvalho. It will be interesting to see how he develops this season, when he will hope for more chances to shine.

𝗧𝗬𝗟𝗘𝗥 𝗠𝗢𝗥𝗧𝗢𝗡 - 𝗺𝗶𝗱𝗳𝗶𝗲𝗹𝗱𝗲𝗿, 𝟭𝟵 𝘆𝗲𝗮𝗿𝘀 𝗼𝗹𝗱

Another to have enjoyed a breakthrough campaign last time out, the Wirral-born midfielder, who has been with the club since the age of seven, made nine appearances in total, including starts against Tottenham in the Premier League and both Porto and AC Milan in the Champions League.

A good all-rounder, he is expected to develop into a No.8 as opposed to a holding midfield player, and while there is clear room for improvement physically, the 19-year-old made a fine impression on Klopp and his staff with his technical quality and range of passing.

𝗦𝗧𝗘𝗙𝗔𝗡 𝗕𝗔𝗝𝗖𝗘𝗧𝗜𝗖 - 𝗱𝗲𝗳𝗲𝗻𝗱𝗲𝗿/𝗺𝗶𝗱𝗳𝗶𝗲𝗹𝗱𝗲𝗿, 𝟭𝟳 𝘆𝗲𝗮𝗿𝘀 𝗼𝗹𝗱

Quietly, Liverpool may have pulled off a hell of a coup when signing this versatile Spanish U18 international from Celta Vigo at the start of 2021. Bajcetic, the son of a former Serbian international, can play either as a centre-back or in midfield, and made significant strides last season before a back injury curtailed his campaign.

Composed on the ball, excellent in the air and with the ability to read the game expertly, he is one whom academy staff have high hopes for going forward.

𝗢𝗔𝗞𝗟𝗘𝗬 𝗖𝗔𝗡𝗡𝗢𝗡𝗜𝗘𝗥 - 𝗳𝗼𝗿𝘄𝗮𝗿𝗱, 𝟭𝟴 𝘆𝗲𝗮𝗿𝘀 𝗼𝗹𝗱

It’s hard to ignore anyone who scores more than 40 goals in a season, and Cannonier was that man for Liverpool last season. He netted 28 times in the U18 Premier League North, and will now look to make the step up to U23 level this year.

While small in stature, the Leeds-born forward comes alive in and around the penalty box, where his movement and finishing ability off either foot stands out. Will need to fill out physically, and may find the step up in level tough to begin with, but has made huge steps in the last 12 months.

𝗕𝗢𝗕𝗕𝗬 𝗖𝗟𝗔𝗥𝗞 - 𝗮𝘁𝘁𝗮𝗰𝗸𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗺𝗶𝗱𝗳𝗶𝗲𝗹𝗱𝗲𝗿, 𝟭𝟳 𝘆𝗲𝗮𝗿𝘀 𝗼𝗹𝗱

Like Gordon and Bajcetic, Clark joined the club in 2021, signing from Newcastle. The son of former Magpies midfielder Lee, he enjoyed a fine first season on Merseyside, appearing for the U18s and U23s, as well as in the UEFA Youth League.

A tireless worker with an eye for goal, he often played as a left-sided forward but also looked comfortable slotting into a midfield three. Was one of three players singled out by Pep Lijnders after an FA Youth Cup win over Burnley in February, so look out for him in pre-season.

𝗟𝗨𝗞𝗘 𝗖𝗛𝗔𝗠𝗕𝗘𝗥𝗦 - 𝗹𝗲𝗳𝘁-𝗯𝗮𝗰𝗸/𝗰𝗲𝗻𝘁𝗿𝗲-𝗯𝗮𝗰𝗸, 𝟭𝟴 𝘆𝗲𝗮𝗿𝘀 𝗼𝗹𝗱

The captain of the U18s last season, Chambers is a consistent performer who can play as a left-back or at centre-back, and can do both at a high level.

Known at the academy for his 1v1 defending and his sweet left foot, he has been part of England’s squad at the European U19 Championships this summer, and looks to have the mentality to kick on with Liverpool’s U23 side this season. A fine prospect.

𝗠𝗔𝗥𝗖𝗘𝗟𝗢 𝗣𝗜𝗧𝗔𝗟𝗨𝗚𝗔 - 𝗴𝗼𝗮𝗹𝗸𝗲𝗲𝗽𝗲𝗿, 𝟭𝟵 𝘆𝗲𝗮𝗿𝘀 𝗼𝗹𝗱

Already well-versed in first-team matters, having spent much of last season training with Klopp’s squad, the Brazilian goalkeeper has a chance to move up the pecking order in the next 12 months as Adrian comes to the end of his time.

Pitaluga doesn’t turn 20 until December, and has benefited from the addition of countryman Claudio Taffarel to Liverpool’s staff. He may need a loan eventually, but for now he’ll have his eye on making himself third choice at Anfield behind Alisson Becker and Caoimhin Kelleher.

𝗠𝗔𝗧𝗘𝗨𝗦𝗭 𝗠𝗨𝗦𝗜𝗔𝗟𝗢𝗪𝗦𝗞𝗜 - 𝗳𝗼𝗿𝘄𝗮𝗿𝗱, 𝟭𝟴 𝘆𝗲𝗮𝗿𝘀 𝗼𝗹𝗱

An exciting talent who endured a tough second season with the club, the Polish youth international flitted between the U23s and U18s, showing only flashes of his undoubted talent.

Still only 18, however, and possesses major qualities in terms of his touch, balance and dribbling ability. Will be looking to take the next step this season and establish himself as a star for the U23s.

𝗟𝗔𝗬𝗧𝗢𝗡 𝗦𝗧𝗘𝗪𝗔𝗥𝗧 - 𝗳𝗼𝗿𝘄𝗮𝗿𝗱, 𝟭𝟵 𝘆𝗲𝗮𝗿𝘀 𝗼𝗹𝗱

One of the best moments of last season was the return to action of the academy’s 2020-21 top scorer Stewart, after a year out with a serious knee injury. The young Scouser has worked tirelessly to get back to full fitness, and marked his return with a trademark 20-yard strike in a friendly at Leicester.

Now, he will be looking to get a full pre-season under his belt and pick up where he left off before the injury, when he was developing rapidly into a fine all-round centre-forward. A loan move could be in the offing at some point this season.

Another to have recently returned from long-term injury. Hill missed the best part of two years having damaged knee ligaments on the eve of the 2020-21 campaign, but should be fit to resume his career this summer.

He’s already got a ‘first-team’ appearance to his name, after featuring in that strange Carabao Cup quarter-final at Aston Villa in December 2019, and the Formby-born attacking midfielder, who plays with real energy and has a keen eye for goal, will now be looking to make up for lost time.

Several others at Liverpool have had a taste of first-team football in recent seasons. Some, like defenders Rhys Williams, Owen Beck and James Norris, midfielders Leighton Clarkson and Jake Cain and forwards Paul Glatzel and Max Woltman, may get opportunities to go out on loan, while others such as wingers Melkamu Frauendorf and Harvey Blair will seek to establish themselves as U23s regulars.

The progress of the versatile Isaac Mabaya will be worth watching, as will that of Jarell Quansah, currently starring for England’s U19 side. Out on loan, let's see how the likes of Conor Bradley, James Balagizi and Billy Koumetio fare.
