  1. Good to see Ryan Kent head off to the Bundesliga. Along with some of the other British talent going over there like Sancho, it seems that going to Germany and playing at what is really an elite level is the way forward. We’ve all seen what happened with the national side from youth upwards. New methods/techniques could be good for the player and the national side. Getting my LFC hat on, there’s some talent in this youth team. Gomes who was at Leeds I heard is a bit special. Leeds weren’t keen on letting him go. Rhian Brewster looks decent too. If they can follow Ben Woodburn’s footsteps, we’ve got a decent few coming through here.
