    Scored two against Spurs today. One was another set piece beauty.

    I have not been following him closely though.

    Would you see a future for him at the club?

    Nope.
    Remember Matthew Taylor? Former Portsmouth player, used to score spectacular goals. That's pretty much Harry Wilson.
    He's just not good enough for us. Just watch him play for 90 mins, screw the YouTube highlight reel.
    I saw him play for the reserves and Derby. He just isn't a player in the Klopp mould. People wonder why Shaq isn't getting any time, you think Wilson will instead?

    Sorry if I sound harsh, it's just that this has been done to death.

    He'll top up the summer splurge fund nicely.

    Just doesn't have enough about him to make it at the very top level, will be a good solid Prem player for most of his career with maybe a goal of the season to tell the grandkids about, but not for us unfortunatey.

    6 goals in the league so far is pretty decent though..

    Young guy with potential. Should come handy but no rush to bring him back yet. He will not take a key position here now.

    Nearly had a hat trick yesterday. We should get 25m for him.

    £25m? And the rest. We sell him to Bournemouth we'll easily get £40m

    So no takers for us?  That's a pity. Be nice to have more youth coming through!

    If Lallana and Milner are moving on dont we need to bring in a couple more home grown players?

    Im not as convinced as others he cant be moulded into a useful squad player. Particularly in a squad where there is very little goal threat from midfield or long range.

    If he gets 10 goals from midfield in his debut season of premier league football we would be crazy not to give him a chance.

    Southampton = Asda, Bournemouth = Cash Converters

    Klopp just confirmed my thoughts about Wilson.

    Klopp also insisted that Harry Wilson can still be a success at Liverpool as the Reds head to Bournemouth on Saturday afternoon. The Wales international was loaned to the Cherries back in the summer and is ineligible for the game at the Vitality Stadium.

    The Reds boss says Wilson needs to improve a number of attacking aspects of his game but believes he can still have a place in his Reds squad next season.

    "Can he succeed? Of course, that's why we loaned him so he can make the steps," Klopp said.

    "It would have been difficult for Harry and I would have loved to have had him here if we had another choice, especially when Shaq (Xherdan Shaqiri) was injured, you want to have these kinds of players, but that is not the moment to decide.

    "All the players we sent on loan have the chance to make it in the first team otherwise we would have sold them. His shooting is world class, that is how it is.

    "Find me five players who shoot better than him, that is obvious, but the game is more and that is what he has to improve and that is clear. But to be involved as an offensive player you have to connect with other players.

    "He has that, it is not like he doesn't, but to get to the next level, he needs game-time at the highest level and that is why we loaned him to Bournemouth."

    Mark Maddock reckons Millie will stay another season. I reckon he's right.

    Do you reckon if Leeds get promoted and we win a specific trophy that shall remain unnamed he might fancy that?

    I don’t mind either way - perfect professional and still more than capable physically.

    Well in that scenario you have first to assume Leeds would want, and could afford, him!

    I don't know. He is a very valuable member of the squad behind the scenes too. The thought of Leeds maybe romantic but more trophies and helping (& learning management & tactics from the best) LFC may be even more attractive. Especially when one imagines we will be paying him substantially more than Leeds could afford.

    I imagine , if we remain at the level were currently at and his involvement remains at the same level, he would stay as long as the club needs him to on the basis he should be getting trophies

    It's criminal if we don't keep Milner and train him towards coaching with us, if that's what he wants obvs.

    I'd keep Wilson too.

    If Lallana goes, Wilson will be a good replacement. Right age, potential and packs a shot which none of our midfielders have.

    Listening to Klopp he doesn’t rate Wilson’s game outside of free kicks at all

    That isn't exactly what he said now is it.  At all.
