    Thought it might be good to start a thread for this academy player as he's recently signed a new contract and rumours are that he will start tonight against Bournemouth.

    Very tidy and creative player, IMO. Current captain of the u-21s.

    Whilst Rossiter gets a lot of the attention, I actually think that Brannagan is going to turn out as the better player.

    Looking forward to seeing him involved a little bit more.

    Short match compilation for those who would like to see a bit of him in action:

    Any thoughts on the boy?

    Can't say he's ever caught my eye when I've watched the youth games as there's quite a few players who've performed well, but i'm looking forward to seeing him play tonight.

    from that wee clip, he likes to move about, quick at turning, always on his toes and not flat-footed.

    Never really noticed him but thats not a negative, I think the addition of some passionate young lads fighting for a spot, might do us good.
    Good on him hope he has an effect on the game, same with tex and the other lads.

    Watched the u21 a lot didn't notice anything special with him but was very impressed with Ryan Mclaughlan, hopefully Cameron will be a big star for us in the future

    You must be talking a while ago...Ryan has been out on loan or injured for the last couple of seasons.

    Can't say I've seen anything on the lad, haven't even heard his name be mentioned until recently either, I actually thought he was a fullback until yesterday when I looked him up haha
    But either way good luck to the lad, hopefully he makes his debut tonight and plays a blinder (along with all the team)

    Nice little performance from the lad. Very tidy with the ball and not always playing it safe.

    Didn't look out of place in the first team at all.

    He looked very at home. Promising player for sure.

    Aye I agree, wasn't fazed at all, didn't just play it safe and tried to make things happen.
    He out performed Allen who is meant to be a first-teamer.

    I think he really grew into the game, especially second half before he was taken off. I think he has more of a future than Rossiter but hopefully both can turn into very good players for us.

    Watched a lot of Brannagan over recent years. I like him a lot, he reminds me of a young Scholes (not saying he's as good as Scholes)

    He's a short passer and one touch player though, a keeper and recycler of possession. Not everyone likes that type of player.

    He was steady, covered ground, kept the ball took few risks but did well for such a game. Tough position as Klopp said you've got lots of duties tactically.

    Did you know that when Cameron Brannagan made his debut for Liverpool, it meant that there was more Mancs in the Liverpool team than in the Manchester United team? There was no Mancs in the United team, but Salford born Cameron Brannagan was in the Liverpool side.

    He's got promise no doubt about that but you can say that about most of the academy players around the world of football.

    He's got to step up and really impress to grab himself a permanent place in the Liverpool side which is going to be very difficult to do not only for him but for any young lad wanting to be a Liverpool player, When Stevie came into the side as a fresh faced kid you could tell the lad was class but very raw, Not sure can say the same about Brannagan or Rossiter really but suppose its only early.

    Gerrard was star quality from the word go. The problem he had was he was a bit on the small side and was still developing physically. He however had the drive and passing range of a veteran. He also had an aggression that was way beyond his years. There was a story that during a training session he scared Paul Ince half to death with a crunching tackle, he up ended him.

    A lot of this has to do with character rather than talent. These youngsters have the talent, but the question is do they have the character of a Gerrard or a Carragher.

    Agreed ... Carra, Macca, Fowler, Stevie all had that character and you knew they would be class and more than likely make it, The current lads I don't see the same character.

    Tex looks the best youngster we have and maybe Ibe also but obviously neither are local lads.

    Agreed.

    The likes of Carra, Gerrard and Robbie were all gutsy and a bit on the cheeky side.

    Robbie in particular was cheeky. It was one of the reasons why Robbie was more loved than Owen was. Okay Owen was a top goal-scorer, but he didn't have the rascally personality of Robbie. The fans could identify when Fowler, Gerrard and Carragher. They remained like the fans. The ''support of the dockers which Robbie and Macca did was proof of that.

    That sort of character is always embraced. Robbie was one of the cheekiest Liverpool players ever, some of the stuff he did was legendary, including the time he taunted Graeme Le Saux which was a bit naughty and when he got on his hands and knees to have a go at Everton fans.

    There is also the time when he was playing for Manchester City in 2004, he got dogs abuse from the Old Trafford faithful and he in return ran past the Stretford End after scoring doing the ''Mourinho Celebration''.

    You would never see Owen do anything like that These young lads in order to be embraced need to be more Robbie Fowler rather than a Michael Owen.

    Think he might struggle with the physicality.

    I remember Ince saying Gerrard used to nutmeg him on a regular basis in training, Ince couldn't believe the audacity in him at such a young age.

    Thought he did pretty well against West Ham. He definitely plays with purpose.
