    Hull City are playing Sunderland on ESPN+ right now if anyone wants to watch Morton and Carvalho in action.

    I didn’t realize Morton had become such a tall lad.

    Carvalho scores a deflected goal to give Hull a 0-1 lead. Took it on the volley well.

    Liverpool youngsters had a night to remember on Saturday as they pummelled Arsenal 7-1 in the FA Youth Cup.

    Arsenal are well-known as having one of the finest academy’s in English football. But this evening, the Reds showed them what they’re made of by pulling off a stunning result. Remarkably, the goals were spread between just three scorers for Liverpool.

    In truth, the night belonged to young Lewis Koumas. The 18-year-old could soon be earing first-team recognition after registering a hat-trick tonight.

    Wing-wizard Trent Kone-Doherty bagged himself two, with Jayden Danns also helping himself to a double.

    And despite Koumas’ three goals, it was Danns who possibly got the pick of the bunch. As seen in a post from account LFCTikiTaka on X, one of the 18-year-old’s two strikes was a sumptuous free-kick. Stepping up very centrally, Danns slams the ball over the wall and into the top right-hand corner. Pick that one out.

    I'm a big believer in getting your kids out on loan to get that feel factor what it's like to come up against men......playing u21 level until they're 21/22 like some of these guys do before retiring early is not what you want for your lads.

    I believe the top 5 talents we have right now are, Nallo (cb), Nyoni (cm), Morrison (rm), Danns (st) and Kone-Doherty. 16-18 yr old lads all playing in our u21s. I say let them test themselves at league 1/2 level and let them progress up through the ranks that way.

    Saturday was smiles all around for Liverpool. The Reds’ first team got an important and much needed victory over Burnley. Meanwhile, just a few hours before that, Liverpool’s U18 team thrashed Blackburn 5-1 at the club’s academy complex in Kirkby.

    The complete performance saw Liverpool run away, particularly in the last half-an-hour of the game. Up until then, it was a close tight affair with the Reds just edging Blackburn 2-1.

    But in the 60 minute mark, Liverpool’s lead was extended by Trent Kone-Doherty, who finished off a chance with brilliant coolness, slotting the ball into the back of the net. That was the youngster’s eighth goal in nine games in the U18 Premier League.

    The spotlight though will fall on Kieran Morrison, who scored a stunning free-kick goal in the 77th minute, and then from the ensuing Blackburn kick-off, went onto reprise possession for Liverpool and score the Reds’ fifth and his second goal – all in the space of about sixty seconds.

    Feels like it's been a while since we spoke of the academy in such glowing terms, think I might resubscribe to LFCTV for the first time in about 10 years and start watching u18/21 games regularly again.

    We have a lot of 16-18 year olds playing u21 football which I think is great, back in the day I remember we still persisted with 20-21 year olds we knew weren't going to make it (Adorjan, Rossiter, Texeira, Randall, Brannagan, Phillips, Brewitt, Trickett-Smith etc)

    a lot has to do with Klopp. he ensures we train the same tactics / skills at all levels, plus he has given more first-team chances to youngsters (I believe) than any of his predecessors.
    that allows us to attract and retains a whole bunch of very talented yoots. learn a winning style, get chances to step up.

    Koumas should be atop that list.
    He gets some praise here:

    We seem to always have a lot of smaller, technical players in our academy. We don't seem to produce anybody with a good deal of physical robustness to their game (speaking of players in MF and attacking positions).

    Maybe to start with but over time Trent and Jones have grown to the point where their robustness is at a good level.

    The Academy boys have been amazing . It boggles my mind that we have such a talented crop of youngsters coming thru and not to forget the likes of Carvalho ,Vandenberg , Beck , Morton , Bajcetic , Doak etc who are either on loan or injured.

    Yep sadly the cup run ends for the mini reds.

    Kone-Doherty is certainly another 1 to look out for, having a brilliant season.

    Three of our youths are named in the England under-18 squad for the Pinatar Super Cup that takes place in Spain.

    Trey Nyoni
    - despite still being eligible for the under-17s and was left out of their squad for November's international break.

    Amara Nallo
    - who is 17 and joined Liverpool from West Ham United last summer, is also in the squad. The centre-back featured on the bench for the Reds' 1-1 draw against Premier League title rivals Manchester City

    Jayden Danns
    - who bagged twice in the Southampton win and recently signed a new long-term deal at Anfield, is also in the young Lions' set-up.

    Another former player’s son is moving up the ranks at Liverpool’s academy, with Prince Kobe Cisse, son of Djibril, making his debut for the under-18s during the international break.

    The Reds are not short on second-generation talent at the club, with the likes of Jayden Danns, son of Neil, and Lewis Koumas, son of Jason, both recently getting their first taste of senior football.

    At just 15, Prince was playing well above his age level, and he will be another to keep an eye on as an up-and-coming forward at academy level.

    And, apparently, a revenge return for a United player who was punched by ind of ours earlier in the season. According to the Daily Fail, that is.

    Also a lot of our players who have been called up to next level and 1st team, Nyoni, Koumas, etc and the United team is top of the league and by all accounts is genuinely good.
