Wisdom Match Reports 2009


Wisdom30th Nov – Liverpool 2 – 0 Wolves (FA Youth Cup) – Andre Wisdom was superb at the back and going forward as Liverpool secured a place in the next round of the FA Youth Cup. He played a defence splitting ball for Tom Ince’s opening goal in the 35th minute after making a great block from a dangerous low cross from Wolves’ James Spray earlier on in the match. Krisztian Adorjan sealed the victory early in the second half for the Reds and Wisdom was named man of the match for his excellent all round performance by LFC.TV.

21st Nov – Liverpool 1 – 3 Manchester United (FA Premier Academy League) – A disappointing performance from Liverpool as two goals from Will Keane and one from Nick Ajose sunk the youngsters at the Academy. The defence failed to deal with a low cross for Keane’s first goal and after Ajose made it 2-0 in the second half, Keane capitalised on a defensive mistake to wrap up victory. Not a great day for Wisdom and the team.

14th Nov – Liverpool 1 – 2 Wolves (FA Premier Academy League) – Wisdom scored his first goal of the season during the match, but it was not enough as Wolves beat Liverpool after going a goal up and regaining the lead in the second half.

7th Nov – Liverpool 1 – 0 Crewe Alexandra (FA Premier Academy League) – An eventful match for Liverpool which could have saw them score a lot more than one goal and saw Andre Wisdom involved in much of the attacking play, demonstrating his excellent qualities with ball at feet. Wisdom could have scored after five minutes, failing to finish from a right wing corner, but he played a crucial part in the only goal of the game, providing a low cross for striker James Ellison to score inside the six yard area 30 minutes into the match.

31st Oct – Liverpool 0 – 2 Everton (FA Premier Academy League) – In a tightly contested mini-derby, many of Liverpool’s attacking players didn’t cover themselves in glory as Andre Wisdom actually had one of the Reds’ best chances of the game, firing just past the post after finding himself free in the penalty area. Late goals from Danny Murphy who scored after a poor punch by Liverpool goalkeeper Chris Oldfield from a corner, and a low strike from the left hand side of the Liverpool box by Conor McAleny, secured the win for Everton.

17th Oct – Liverpool 3 – 0 Blackburn Rovers (FA Premier Academy League) – Wisdom was part of a defence which kept a clean sheet as Liverpool Under 18s had a resounding victory over Rovers with Michael Ngoo scoring two goals.

10th Oct – Liverpool 0 – 1 Bolton Wanderers (FA Premier Academy League) – Chris Stokes fifth minute penalty secured a win for the young Trotters but the Reds should have got a lot more out of the game. Wisdom at the back was not troubled that often as Liverpool laid siege to the Bolton goal.

26th Sept – Liverpool 2 – 6 Manchester City (FA Premier Academy League) – 1-0 up at half-time at the Academy, the team conceded six in the second half after Michael Roberts was sent off early in the second period. Wisdom was in great form during the first half, clearing off the line after a Matthew McGiveron mistake had let in City for a certain goal. The second half display was certainly have disappointed coach Rodolfo Borrell.

29th Aug – Liverpool 0 – 3 Leicester City (FA Premier Academy League) – Despite losing 3-0, Wisdom and centre back partner Coady impressed while trying to hold out against an impressive Leicester team. In the first half a great run by Josef Schlupp was stopped in its tracks by Wisdom but a resulting deflection put the ball in the path of Adi Yussuf whose shot was kept out by both goalkeeper Chris Oldfield and defender Conor Coady. Despite the defence’s best efforts they still conceded three goals.

22nd Aug – Liverpool 3 -1 Fulham (FA Premier Academy League) – Wisdom partnered Conor Coady at the back as Lauri Dalla Valle scored twice in a 3-1 win.
