Jay Spearing’s future at Liverpool
At the risk of sounding sensationalist, next season could be a make or break year for Jay Spearing. He’s shown that the talent is there, and it is now time for him to show that he can use that talent to improve as a player.
With Liverpool currently looking a bit overstaffed in the midfield area I believe that it would be most beneficial for Spearing to gain regular match time on loan next season. As I mentioned before, we have nothing to lose. If he does well, we can consider him for our future plans as a reliable squad member. If he doesn’t do well enough to hold down a place in Liverpool’s squad we can sell him for a decent fee. Being out on loan often reveals a lot about where a player’s career is heading, and I’m hopeful that Jay Spearing can go on to give Kenny Dalglish even more of a selection headache when it comes to Liverpool’s midfield.
Whether he has the ability to make it at Liverpool remains to be seen, but a full season of Premier League appearances for a smaller club would no doubt reveal a lot about Spearing’s character and his chances of succeeding at this level.
