They are calling him “The New Robbie Fowler” but I do not like it when people put pressure on youngsters in this way. Adam Morgan is his own person in my opinion and who knows, he could even go on to be a better striker for Liverpool than Robbie Fowler. He certainly has all the potential to do so.

Adam Morgan has caught the eye of everyone involved with Liverpool due to his goal scoring exploits. He scored 21 goals for the Under 18’s last season which resulted in him being called up to the England U17 World Cup squad in Mexico.

Adam is still only 17-years-old but he could benefit from Kenny Dalglish’s nature of fielding youngsters into the first team. There are suggestions that David Ngog will be sold this summer if we can find a buyer for him and that would mean we are short of a backup striker. If Ngog is sold and we do not bring anyone in, do not be surprised to see Morgan have a couple of appearances in the first team this season.

Morgan has already started scoring the goals this season as he has bagged four goals already in just two pre-season friendlies, including a brace in a Liverpool XI’s 7-0 drubbing of Preston North End on Wednesday. After that match the striker said, “I’ve been raring to go since the end of last season because I finished on such a high.

“I’ve had a good break. Mexico was a good experience but I just want to concentrate on Liverpool now and have a good season.”

I am sure Morgan will continue to feature for the Under 18’s this term and be part of the NextGen Series. But he could just get a shot at the first team if he is lucky this season.

Do you think Dalglish should give Morgan a chance in the first team this coming season like Fowler and Owen were given in the past?
