    he's got a lot in his locker, can shoot with both feet and quick on the turn. He'll be exciting to watch the next couple of years as he matures physically and mentally.

    What I do like about Brannagan is the fact that despite his slightness, he hasn't shown an ounce of fear and I haven't seen him being bullied once in the middle of the park in his handful of first team games.

    With his close control, passing ability and his slight build it would have been very easy for him to settle into a number 10 role, where he would have more time on the ball and less defensive responsibility. Instead he wants to play right in the middle, which is a great attitude to have at such a young age, even if he ends up plying his trade further forward, his experiences in the middle of the park will help him for sure!

    Good luck to the lad!

    thought he was excellent. MOTM by far.

    Excellent performance from the boy. Apart from his size, there aren't any real flaws to his game and his set-piece delivery was the best that I think we've seen in quite a while.

    I would have no issues with him becoming our 3rd/4th choice in the middle. I can see him, along with Henderson and Can, as 3 of our long-term options.

    there's one more for me and that is he isn't the fastest. Nice player though.

    set pieces.
    the senior players should learn set piece delivery from this lad. like really!

    he was a threat at dead ball situations, and looked to create something often..

    would be a shame if he doesn't feature in league games now! Ibe needs a few games sitting out imo..

    Saying that though, he's not exactly the slowest and he's certainly nippy enough to steal a yard or two in central midfield.

    I'd rather we keep him Stewart and Tex in the ist squad permantly than buying the likes of Piotr Zielinski or even illarramendi

    I think it depends on who is up against I guess. I haven't watched a lot of him I must admit but from what I've seen he's no faster than anyone that we have in midfield already. Well possibly Lucas.

    He has creativity to make up for it though and his delivery is pretty sharp also.

    Don't necessarily need pace in CM. Iniesta and Xavi never had it (extreme examples).

    What they did have was very good ability on the ball, sharp minds and the ability to move quickly over 3-4 yards. Think Brannagan is in a similar mould. His technical ability is good enough to make up for any lack of real pace.

    And that's something that will only get better as he develops.

    It's always interesting to see how players adapt stepping up. Rossiter was the one that looked like breaking through, Chirivella is technically the best but Brannagan is the one who himself on the first team given an opportunity.

    Rather than herald him as a big talent it's quite nice to see a youngster with a well rounded game. Can beat a man, pass, good dead ball delivery, mobile, can press he's a good all round player and these types of players are what we are supposed to be producing.

    Not every talent had to be a Raheem Sterling you get great benefit from high quality squad players coming through.

    My only disappointment is how we lack local players (Liverpool) with real technical ability. It definitely needs addressing as it must be systematic with the structure and culture at the club. Liverpool is a football city and with the right environment technical ability should flourish. It's not.

    I don't think there is enough about Rossiter to make it. He's very much a 'steady eddie'. I don't think there are any aspects to his game that stand out. That's why I've said that I think Brannagan is the better prospect. His technical quality stands out, along with being able to do things at a real pace. Exciting player. I hope he doesn't get drowned out by new signings in the summer.

    I think PL is above his level. I'm not even sold on Branagan yet either. Granted he had a very good game against West Ham, his tow games vs Exeter not so much.

    Well Campos, if we believe (and we should) what JK says about promoting youth; Brannagan - and to a lesser extent Rossiter- will have been very well looked over by him. Having done so he will know if either will push on and this may, just may save the club big money. I'd love this to be the case. We have wasted so much money in recent seasons that we should use our own talent as far as possible, which would be a win/win for all of us.
    loyal since 1960.

    I agree to a certain extent in that I agree he isn't going to be a dynamic midfielder as hoped for. He hasn't shown any sign of becoming so. And yes I think he will become a 'steady eddie'. But that doesn't mean you can't be a decent player. I just think he needs to model his game more realistically on someone like Lucas rather than even attempting to replicate Gerrard! Lucas is a 'steady eddie', but has had a good career by being a specialised DM. He enjoys defending, understands that it his responsibility to protect the back 4 and he understands there are better players with the ball at their feet than him; so give it to them as quickly as possible. This is what Rossiter should do. He is a good tackler, is comfortable in possession (but I think he lacks a killer pass) and has enough time to learn all there is to learn about positional play for the DM role. Add in the fact that he is a scouse and looks like he is about 12 (plenty more physical development left) then I see no reason why he can't have a career at LFC.

    I agree and hold out hope that he can go on to be that player but, IMHO, I can't see him being able to do a job to the level that we'd require. That's just my opinion, though. I think that Brannagan can.

    Yh, I think if people are hoping he will be the future of our midfield, then they need to watch him a bit more, as tbf it would be some jump from the level he is currently. But he could certainly be a decent squad player. And I agree with Brannagan, I think he can have an impact. Maybe not starting 11 again, but I can't see why he at least can't get to the same level of a player like Allen.

    Would like to see this lad get a game or two in the league before the end of the season - I don't watch much of the U21's but he looks as if he's got real ability. Anyone got any insights on whether he's ready for the first team?

    He's constantly mentioned by Klopp when talking about our promising young players. From that, I'd suggest that he is pretty close to the first team. Wouldn't be surprised to see him in and around the squad for the last few matches of the season. Our Midfield options are Allen, Stewart, Lucas and Miner, so hardly the strongest.

    Are you seriously saying that you can judge what level the lad will be from what you have seen from him as a youngster #



    You could not make it up...

    You have anything to back that up? Can't just go around speculating on lineups without any proof.

    Him Kevin Stewart perhaps even Brad Smith could be involved against Newcastle. And if Sinclair had not been a prat and listened to his AHole agent he would have more than likely played a part. But quite rightly the boss will not bother picking him as he has had his head turned.

    rumours are that he's already agreed a deal, he should really regret that... as you say he'd be likely to start or be on the bench this weekend.

    As Jordan Rossiter moves north of the border, Brannagan starts his first PL match and plays more passes than anybody else in the league - https://twitter.com/Squawka/status/731981994217742336

    Really bright future for the boy.

    Shame it didn't work for Rossiter.

    Yeah it's a shame, best of luck to the boy.

    Brannagan has a bit more about him, I'd say.
