What do the new/future signings mean for Liverpool's youngsters?
I think it can be said that the impact of the youngsters that Brendan Rodgers had a significant impact on our season. Raheem Sterling was a very good player for us in the first half of the season before his injury and Jonjo Shelvey was superb in the Europa League campaign. We also saw the likes of Andre Wisdom and Suso be included in the team infrequently but with the new signings that have arrived what does this mean for the next generation of Liverpool players. With Iago Aspas and Kolo Toure already in and with the likes of Henrikh Mkhitayran and Luis Alberto likely to join them. This would create a lot of competition for places in the attacking areas which would leave Sterling, Shevley and Suso down the peaking order come the start of the season. As well as these signings, at least one new defender is set to join the reds in the coming months and Martin Kelly returning from injury this could move Wisdom out of the picture. So my question to you is do we keep these young players in the reserves so that we have some players with first team experience, so more than others, to call upon when needed or do we loan them out to help them build experience?
