Loan Watch: 2022/23

I’d like to think if we were spending 40m on a player, it wouldn’t be on a kid with limited experienced who isn’t good enough to get into our squad? This really only comes into the equation if he somehow manages to work his way into Klopp’s plans next season.

From Liverpool’s perspective it’s clearly been about making a profit back on players we knew weren’t at the level the club sets out…Neco Wilson Brewster Kent etc, were all loaned with the intentions already clear we’d profit from it.

I don’t see that being any different with Sepp.

Totally agree. The very objective of sending a player out on loan is to ensure his continued development by giving him regular competitive games.

Sepp could make the jump from a mid-level Championship side to one of the leading leagues is because he developed during his time at Preston. The 40-odd games Elliott played for Blackburn definitely helped him becoming a regular for us now.

Thankfully, the universe has decided to destroy every feel-good story that has anything to do with Liverpool. I think that Antonio Valencia suffered a similar injury more than ten years ago and it took him almost the whole season to recover. I think Sepp’s season is done but I hope it will not have a significant impact on his career - other than strengthening his mental resolve. I fucking hate this fucking season.

Gutted. Hopefully the kid will recover fully soon :pray:.

Out of calendar year. Likely longer.

Serious ligament damage

Feels like someone has cursed our club and anyone associated with it…

Leighton Clarkson with an assist and a beauty of a goal tonight.

Things seem to be going fairly well for him up there.

Not sure all those numbers are correct - Woltman has played way less than 748 minutes and 4 games (360 minutes) for Billy were in their reserve team for example

Morton’s loan is definitely going well then, not too dissimilar to Harvey’s there.

Wonder if Morton and Bajcetic swap roles next season.

Really sad about Sepp van den Berg

You can take the boy out of Liverpool…

Owen Beck not having much luck

What happened?

no nothing. Just did not get games in Portugal and now not too much at Bolton.
