"People have to still be realistic about what we can expect of him next season - yes, he's a fantastic prospect for the future, and he did play very well at the end of the season, but he's still only 18 and has a lot to learn yet. However, he could easily be a first team regular in a few seasons!"

8th Jul 2011 15:06
"Congrats, well deserved! But does he not like DC as much as KK? Look at the smile in the pic w/ the 3, and the somber/stern look when signing w/ DC. Doesn't like DC or not totally happy with the terms?"

"Great news we have got young John Flanagan on a long term contract, i was well impressed with his committment and the last few games in 2010-2011 season. He was my man of the match against Newcastle when we won 3-0. Good business Kenny and no less than the kid deserves. Y.N.W.A. "

"wicked clear future ahead for liverpool"
8th Jul 2011 16:26
"Notice how recent contract extensions signed have all been 'long term' but no exact length.. weird policy dont ya think"
8th Jul 2011 16:28
"Not just because he got some first team games last season BUT he is talented and has skills..He is another Carragher student"
8th Jul 2011 16:31

"Amazing 11 years of foreign managers and only two top British first team regulars in all that time give or take a few fringe others, and now within months of KK coming back we have half a team of Brits, it's what we need it's what the game needs. Well done the owners, KK and to the whole team at Liverpool, this is the only way forward. Result for you Jo you deserve it. y.n.w.a"

8th Jul 2011 17:16
"Funk2Funk, sometimes in football (both as a player and manager) it's about timing. Kelly would have been much more of a fixture with Rafa had he not got a bad injury. Rafa intoduced Robinson just before he left. Flanno and Jack were both very young under Rafa. Injuries forced KK to play these two."
8th Jul 2011 17:17
"Well done young lad! Deserve it after your performances last season, definitelt think your more worthy of the RB position than Johnson!"
8th Jul 2011 17:31

8th Jul 2011 22:19
"A young Tommmy Smith?? Well done Flanno..Great player, keep up the good work! YNWA"
8th Jul 2011 22:39
"Flanno...our future Carra! You have been quite a revelation...Just when we taught that there could not be anyone better than Kelly, you came along and made yourself counted! I am so happy you'r committing your future with us!"
8th Jul 2011 23:38
"This lad is a star in the making. I've already got a shirt with his name on it and that is normally not something I decide lightly. Take care young Flanno, you've got a great future ahead of you"
