Another insightful piece, Paul. Thank you. "they are never better than before they've kicked a ball for the senior side, because those who say they should be in the team every week are yet to be proved wrong." So true. Thankfully, proving them wrong is not on the manager's agenda as we have a Cup to win and 4th to consolidate.

"One thing is for certain, our season has not been great, however, it is NOT because half the reserves were kept out of the first team. What do you want to blame Rafa for exactly? He like everyone else thought Liverpool were true contenders this season. No one foresaw what has happened thus far. "

"Agree with most if not all of this piece.We have youth with promise.Still feel that Pacheco is worthy of a place on the bench but not a start"

"Pachecho has been on the bench for awhile now. I have a feeling he will get a start on Thursday with Babel, hopefully Yossi and Aqua are ready for that game too. I want us to take the Europa League seriously but I also want to take Pachecho seriously and honestly, I think he might just need our confidence in him to shine."

"Hi, my name is Paul Tomkins, I get paid to write drivel and useless facts that nobody cares about but me - I hide away from all the other real issues surrounding our club"

"Excellent piece, I am amazed how the press are so negative when reporting anything to do with the team or Rafa. Maybe it,s because they are based in Manchester"

"Yes i was shocked to see the mail online abuse Liverpool fc about their lose to watford. Liverpool have some good players at reserve level, amoo,eccelston,kackaniclic, dalla valle,kelly etc etc Rafa just needs to give the chances"

"sorry but nemeth should be ready next season same as kelly is ready now, amoo looks great rafa was linked to lennon and asley young, amoo could be better than both, eccelstone has the ability to play anywhere across the top. bouzanis gulicis very good i just hope these player are not sold off to make a small profit."

"SORRY PACHECO IS ALSO READY, RAFA GIVE HIM GAMES PLEASE AND KELLY!! SO THE OTHER LADS CAN SEE YOU DO GET CHANCES AT LIVERPOOL!! WE CAN HAVE 6-8 PLAYERS COME THROUGH!! AS WE HAVE SOME VERY GOOD YOUNG PLAYERS!! WHY YOU ALWAY SEND THEM ON LOAN THEN SELL THEM, AFTER LYING YOU WANT TO KEEP THEM? THIS MUST STOP."

"Promise is not ability, just potential. NO team can guarantee player success. If good enough, they'll get their chance. Compeion is one of the best ways to test and improve one's skills. Our youth policy is NOT a failure, just a work in progress, with Lucas, Insua, Kelly and Spearing evidence of progress here, extending to our first XI. Let's keep believing. Siempre es posible!"
