Grasshopper Result & Danny Wilson Signing

Is it not risky to parade your new signings at such heights?...

Liverpool's first friendly of the season after the game against Al Hilal was cancelled ended in a 0-0 draw. Hodgson's first game against old employers - Grasshopper was an average display, typical of a pre season friendly filled with youngsters and untested players.

By no means though was this a reason to raise fault at the unfamiliar looking Liverpool side, with academy starlets such as Eccleston and Amoo shining and also causing problems for Grasshopper, the fielded XI have nothing to be ashamed of.

The team was captained by Lucas and it was fellow regular Alberto Aquilani who had one of the most promising chances for the Red's who were showing off the latest third strip for the shop window. (Might i add the best option of a black strip for Liverpool FC this year is the alternative one, don't line their pockets! www.ourclubourshirt.com).

So a hard fought and promising 0-0 if ever there was one, shall look forward to seeing some more of Liverpool's lesser known players in the near future.

In other news, Liverpool have completed the signing of Danny Wilson from Rangers. The 18 year old was praised massively by Rangers and they were more than happy to keep him on, the youngster however had made his mind up and opted for the move to Anfield.

Listed as a centre back it will be interesting to see whether Wilson will get an immediate start, with such competition from the likes of Carragher, Agger, Skrtel and Kyrgiakos in that position the lad will have to do a lot of hard work to make any real impression.

Still learning his trade though and clearly filled with potential... Danny Wilson - Welcome To Anfield.
