I like Wolves, as my in-laws are from that part of the country, but Wolves are a hard watch. Top 3 the most boring sides in the league. Only Newcastle and Burnley are worse.

 

Southampton will pass around them but it'll end 1-0 Wolves or 2-1 Saints. 

Or something in between? 😁

At first surprised we have no candidates, despite being top 4 material. Then remembered that some of our best players (JJ, Fofana, Castagne, N'Didi) have missed chunks of the season through injury. Surely though, Barnes or Tielemans, could have been there?

Not a bad thing that we get overlooked for this sort of thing. I think JJ would be best bet but as you say, he, and others have missed big chunks of the season.

 

Let's hope some of the above eventually do too 👀😬

I really liked Klopp when he first turned up at Liverpool, he was  like a breath of fresh air, unfortunately now that fresh air has turned into a smelly rancid stink, forever moaning, using excuses and not giving the opposition credit he’s becoming the new Wenger.

 

I agree he’s not the same bloke but I wouldn’t underestimate the death of his mother and the inability to actually go home for a funeral etc making him a mess at present. He must be hurting.

That would make sense if the behaviour hadn't been going on for a long time before his mother's death.

He’s got terrible lately compared to last season and earlier this. Even his appearance looks worse at the moment. He doesn’t look the same man.

Evans and Schmeichel are good candidates too.

It's something about being there, I reckon. Brendan started blathering on about smelling mince and putting names in envelopes and calling players the Welsh Xavi at Liverpool yet here he looks like he's having relaxed chats in pubs.

Whilst this is absolutely true, it does not explain or excuse his slow decent into Wengerism over the last few years. I quite like old Klipperty, but the whinging, whining and excuse making are becoming way beyond tedious. It’s like the victim mentality of scouseland has slowly infected him.

Definitely put names in envelopes, it was included in the documentary. Not sure about smelling mince, although I hope it’s true 😂

Not really surprised by that, I feel like we're a team whereas others (except Man City) seem to rely on individuals to get them out of trouble. Liverpool rely on Salah, Spurs rely on Kane and Son, Soucek has been scoring for fun for WHU and Fernandes has been unreal for United for over 12 months now. Our best players this season have probably been Maddison, Barnes, Justin and Tielemans, so you could argue one of them should be in there, but their individual stats aren't up there with the rest of those players

I think he has Cluster B traits. All fine (or so it appears) when everything is going his way but the real personality shows when not. Blame shifting, inability to take criticism, putting others down to make himself feel better. Even if the death of his mother is something to do with it, grief shouldn’t come out like that.

How long before Nuno out becomes a thing. Don't know if I'm joking anymore.

 

It already is a thing. A significant portion of Wolves fans want him gone.

Ings is one of my favourite non-LCFC players. Not only a good striker but a good all round footballer.

 

If he was younger and not as injury prone I'd want us to be going all in for him.

Sensation pass by Vestergaard. Deserved a goal that.

Walker-Peters should have just hit it in that situation, there was nobody in the middle anyway.
