Will be really interested to see Beni playing 1-2000 minutes somewhere.

He looks a good player but not that much on the ball showed so far. Will be interesting to see how he gets on!

Liked how he at least tried to be progressive against Chelsea last season. Dropped the shoulder a few times and moved forwards with the ball instead of taking the safe option which you would have expected from such a young lad in a big game.

The Blue 3/4 of Liverpool


Apparently he hasn't been smiling enough in training with the other Galatasaray boys, so we're going to have to sit it out until January at least.

Not exactly on topic based on the previous few posts but I saw this a few weeks ago. It's not great, at least from my point-of view.

https://www.trainingground.guru/articles/everton-youth-teams-now-more-direct,-less-sanitised

Some choice quotes:

It seems regressive to develop players so they'll be comfortable in League Two if they go on loan. And to think of flick-ons as the "real world." It's only a reality for crap teams in England. Nobody who's actually good plays that route one garbage.

I know he mentions playing out from the back and going direct but really, there's no point bothering with the latter. Our academy players are never going to reach the level we need them at if half of their development time is spent learning crap football.

Fuck me that's grim reading. CB's - "They've got to head it, block it, kick it - then if they can play, great."

Well... as long as they can "kick it" FFS!

I don't agree with this at all. Coach good football and with it good decision-making. A good footballer will know when to do something basic and when he can and should play it. Someone who has only ever been told "When in doubt, kick it out" will be looking for row Z every time which is just giving the opposition the ball back.

If you have a player who is coached to be good in the air and direct a header, then they can find space with a flick-on as easily as they can find the net. They don't need to be coached flick-on's for flick-on's sake. If they've been coached good decision-making, when the time comes for one they will be fine.

This is so anti-football. To be putting this into kids so young is very, very disappointing and I'm not surprised so few U18's have been kept on. The question is - have we let them down by doing this? Have we missed out on a potentially decent player? Have we potentially fucked up someone's career?
