Why the NextGen Series is very important to Liverpool

Doing this would be better in my opinion then sending our U19 players out on loan, because they would have more chance of starting, they would get a European football mentality and would be around their future teammates. However, I have no quams with sending players who are outside of the age bracket out on loan, such as: Nathan Ecclestone, Stephen Darby, Gulacsi and Amoo. Many players who play in this competition, for other teams, will lack first team experience so I believe if we line up 4-2-3-1 with: Belford(GK), Flannagan, Wisdom, Wilson, Robinson, Shelvey(C), Coady, Suso, Pacheco, Sterling, Morgan, we could blow away the competition. I think it is fair to say the first team will not suffer too much from their exclusion and being involved in this competition would be more exciting then being sent to a Championship / League 1 club on loan or languishing in the reserves.

Another advantage of following this plan rather than sending player out on loan would be that Kenny Daglish could call upon any of these players, at any time, to play in the League Cup or if the first team was suffering from injuries.

Granted, it will not be a disaster if Liverpool don’t do well in this competition, but it would be a severely missed opportunity! I hope I have convinced some of you of the NextGen Series’ importance to us, as opposed to loaning are young starlets. It looks like our club will be taking this seriously, if you follow the signs: Rodolfo Borrell has been named as the coach for the competition, which can only be good; we will be playing our home fixtures at Anfield and the Club were reluctant to send eligible Dani Pacheco out on loan to Coventry, which could possibly hint at an inclusion in the NextGen squad? I would be interested in hearing your opinions.

OurKop.com would like to welcome Oscar Williams to the team
