    Conor Masterson

    First appearance on the bench for Liverpool tonight for the U19 player. Might get another chance to make an appearance in the replay.

    2-2 with Exeter? You'll never win anything with kids. Good for Masterson on getting noticed but may betoo early to read too much into it, considering half the team put out are in their teens. On the other hand, I think he'd have been the youngest in that squad

    I think the Liverpool kids deserve more credit for that result than Exeter to be honest, despite the way it's being portrayed. I'd have expected the more seasoned pros to have been able to bully Liverpool with their experience, physicality and general knowhow. It's not as if many of those young fellas are too likely to end up playing at the very top level themselves. Obviously an Anfield date is something for Exeter to treasure, but I'd be very reluctant to praise them for the result itself. All a bit beside the point I know.

    He is a very talented lad. I think he is only 17, so unless Liverpool were winning comfortably, it isn't the right time to throw him in.
    At least, it's a confidence boost for him that he is very highly thought off and he would seem to be ahead of other lads of his age.

    Pity about Cleary. By all accounts, he is impressing Klopp. Hopefully, he gets a chance in the coming weeks.

    If you look at Wiki, the only Conor to ever get capped is the man who swims upstream, though there are a few Cons in there. So he would be only the second. I guess Mr. Clifford never ended up getting capped? You guys should make sure this list is accurate.

    The Cons would all be Cornelius, not Conor. Clifford never made a full cap, no.

    Conor Masterson has described the ‘surreal’ moment when he found out he would be in Liverpool’s matchday squad for Friday night's FA Cup third round tie away to Exeter City.




    The centre-back, who only turned 17 in September, appeared on Jürgen Klopp’s bench for the first time in the 2-2 draw against the League Two outfit.

    The Dublin born youngster was an unused substitute on the night, but insists the experience was an unforgettable one.

    “It's a bit of a dream come true if I'm honest,” he admitted to Liverpoolfc.com. “It was surreal. I got told Thursday that I was going to go up and train at Melwood and then on Friday I travelled with the team.

    “We had the team talk and I got told I was on the bench. I just couldn't believe it. It was an unbelievable feeling. I was taken aback to be honest.

    “Jürgen just said to me 'if you get a chance to go on, then go out and enjoy yourself. There's no pressure on you. Just go and do your best.'”

    It was a hectic few days for Masterson as he then started for the U18s on Saturday morning in their 3-0 win over Manchester United at the Academy, having returned from Devon the night before.

    He added: “I tried to get to bed as quick as I could and get ready for this game because I wanted to play.

    “Critch [U18s manager Neil Critchley] said to me 'you don't have to play because they might want you for Sunday' but I wanted to play.

    “It is always good to beat them. The way we did beat them was comfortable and really good.

    “We weren't really worked at all to be honest. We just focused on what we had to do and we did that.”
    THE TRUTH AT LAST

    Klopp's been impressed with him: http://www.liverpoolecho.co.uk/sport...handa-12622885
    “I knew them both from training with us already,” Klopp told the ECHO.
    “I also spoke with Pep and it was a logical decision.
    “We could have taken Rhian Brewster or a few other guys, but Yan Dhanda and Conor Masterson are the next boys.
    “Pep is the man for this. We needed two players and we decided on Yan and Conor.
    “I know all of the boys and that’s really cool. It’s a good group. They have worked well, really good attitude. Yan and Conor have fitted in well.”

    Yeah Klopp is only going to say nice things anyway but encouraging that he was one of the guys called up.

    Nathan Murphy reckons Masterson might make the Liverpool bench tomorrow after being left out of their U23 squad (although one reply suggests he was an unused sub) - https://twitter.com/nathanmurf/statu...16478158364677
