I dont get the Traore love in.

 

he doesn't seem that good to me.

 

For 95% of the game he is just a passenger lolling around.

 

Then when he gets the balls is tough is ropey, he kicks it and runs fast and 1 in 4 crosses look half way decent. He is lucky that his stuff comes off 1 game in 12 such as against City.

 

Not a top notch player

I think the jest is that Klopp could teach him real end product. But he is a nightmare for defenders, and you pretty much have to double down on him, which frees alot of space up for others as he did last night. I'd take him in a heartbeat, not for his skills, but for the fear factor, and then hope the staff could drill some end product into him.

And just to juxtapose, this is how I felt in 1985, before I thought it would take another 35-odd years for me to feel this way  again...

Still buzzing this morning. The bollocks our lads showed last night to come through that and win. Immense. I'm not usually this optimistic but I think we might just challenge for the league title this season.

Reading through the match reports in the papers, you'd think Wolves were hard done to losing last night. But if you look at the hard facts, we bested them in virtually every area you look at.

 

Im left wondering if Mo and to a lesser extent Bobby and Sadio while he was on, hadnt wasted all their chances, Wolves, like united on Sunday, would have been on the end of a 4 or 5 goal hiding. And I wonder what the narrative towards Wolves would have been in those circumstances.

I reckon Wolves were great.  And we won.

 

Who cares whether we "bested them", old bean?

 

We won.

 

We won.

 

Again.

 

Winning's best.  Not besting.

Dead right. There’s nothing wrong with giving wolves credit. They played well and could’ve won it. There were times in the second half when they looked more likely than we did to come away with the spoils.

 

it doesn’t make them genuinely hard done by, but considering how good we are and that nobody has yet beaten us, they deserve a lot of credit for pushing us as hard as pretty much anyone. They were more deserving of a point than the only team that've actually taken a point off us.

 

thankfully, at the same time, we played quite well overall ourselves and did enough to win it.

 

we could’ve won more handsomely, we could’ve drawn or lost, so credit all round - and thankfully our credit comes with three points attached, while their credit is in galant defeat.

Two of them against Man City, in fairness. It really isn't too strong to say that it is performances against Wolves that have defined the top of the table.

We should take it as a compliment that playing us is the highlight of the season to most clubs and they raise their effort and game accordingly. It's a full house wherever we go.

Wolves do not have any creativity to break teams down that sit back.

 

It's no wonder they look best against teams who play. There is more room behind for them against the better sides.

I’ve got a lot of respect for them actually. Their manager seems to do things the right way. In interviews he comes across as a no nonsense man, honest and respectful. He stays positive and works to improve them long term. He’s certainly implemented his own style of football. It’s different, it’s innovating and a kind of excitingly new way of doing things on the field.

So they do struggle against the dross, but do well against the top teams. I wonder if I haven't heard that one before about another team being placed app 5-7 in the league a couple of years ago.

Yep. They lost twice to Huddersfield last season. They are not a top side, not even close, but they certainly have a coherent style of play and that's more than you can say about most teams. And Traoré can break the game open against anyone.

Have just watched this, I don't think Wolves did anything special at all really. They scored a great goal, had another couple of good chances, but nothing else that caused us that many problems.

 

The one thing that bugs me more than anything else is that Robbo's booking was the first this season and I'm fucking sure Traore was offside anyway. The linesman was standing right next to him as well.

 

Really glad Fabinho is back too.

Haha, the look on that girl's face when the mascots are walking down the corridor and realise Klopp's sitting there on a packing case.

    • Despite the halt to the Premier League season, transfer rumours never stop and the latest snippet of news regards another left-back being linked to the Reds.

      Football 365 (via Spanish publication Sport) reports that PSG star Layvin Kurzawa is on the radar of Liverpool as they search for specialised cover for Andy Robertson.

      The evergreen James Milner has deputised many times in the role during the tenure of Jürgen Klopp, but in doing so, it takes away some of the strengths he offers in the middle of the pitch.

      Youngsters Yasser Larouci and Adam Lewis have made appearances in domestic cup and pre-season games, but they are both viewed as options for the long term.

      Kurzawa was strongly linked to Arsenal during the January transfer but he stayed put at the French champions with manager Thomas Tuchel very keen to keep hold of him.  

      The 27 year-old has a deal of experience in a domestic sense having also played for Monaco, in European competition for PSG and also on the international stage where he has won 13 caps for France. 

      He also brings a winning pedigree to the table having been part of three title-winning squads with PSG as well as a number of domestic cups.

      With his contract ending in the summer, Liverpool will be able to sign Kurzawa on a free transfer.

      In terms of his strengths, Kurzawa looks to have a nice blend between attacking and a defensive sense.

      In possession, he tries to drive forward with the ball, a trait highlighted by his 1.47 progressive runs up the pitch per 90 minutes this season.

      He likes the ball at his feet with Kurzawa where he has averaged 2.8 dribbles per 90 minutes with a success rate of 56%, and has a pass success rate of 87% during 2019/20.

      Despite being comfortable in possession, Kurzawa is not a playmaking full-back in the way that Robbo and Trent are, although to be honest, not many are in the modern Football landscape.

      An area where Kurzawa could struggle in a Jürgen Klopp side is his defensive positioning and concentration.

      This is along with a lack of confidence in his own ability which many close observers believe is a key reason that he has been in and out of the PSG side this season. 

      That last part makes him sound like a Alberto Moreno clone, but in truth we are not looking for a world beater in this position, just a player that can give Andy Robbo a breather every now and then.

      With that all said, being able to sign Kurzawa could be a pretty savvy move.

    • That article just sounds like 'shit we need to write sonething'. Teams will know this isn't a proper training camp and just a necessity to get the season complete, the TV companies off their back and get the players paid again.    Brighton 'intense schedule' fuck off its 9 games over 4 to 6 weeks. You could wrap it up in 3/4 weeks if you had to and it would be no more intense than our schedule over Dec-Jan the last few years. We played 12 games in 37 days this year, yet Brighton are moaning at playing 9 in between 28 and 42 days     Think Brighton might be more on the let's void the season being 2pts outside the relegation zone
    • Coronavirus: Premier League plan to restart season branded unworkable as clubs eye solution   Plans to put players under lockdown for a month to get the season finished have been branded unworkable – because clubs are too picky. The hotel quarantine plan is one idea mooted for Friday's next round of talks between the Premier League, EFL, Football Association and the Professional Footballers’ Association.     In a bid to conclude the season, one proposal is to squeeze remaining games into a condensed time frame in June, behind-closed-doors, with players kept in isolation to protect them from the risk of contracting coronavirus. Stadiums, hotels and training facilities would undergo a “deep clean”, with the players under strict quarantine, to enable the season to be completed by mid-July.   But Christian Machowski, whose company ESEM specialises in travel management for top clubs across Europe, believes the plan is unrealistic, because of the particular demands of the elite teams when it comes to hotels and training facilities.   “There are so many factors that come into play," said Machowski. “When clubs are looking to book hotels, one of the chief issues is what is an acceptable time to drive to a stadium? "Teams don't want to be stuck on a bus for 45 minutes to an hour, travelling to a game. “Everybody wants the best for their team, but there's only a small number of elite hotels that are suitable. “For example, there are two or three hotels in London where all the teams tend to stay when they play there. “To find a venue where 20 teams can find facilities up to the required standard is just not workable."   “In terms of training facilities, teams would also want to be as a close as possible, so that would present problems. “Then you would have to quarantine the same hotel staff for three or four weeks. “And if one team picked up an infection, whether it's a player or member of staff, that's the end of the tournament.   “It's not about teams staying in luxury, it's complicated because the infrastructure is so finely tuned for clubs in terms of what they need.”   Brighton have voiced their opposition to the proposal for a single-city Premier League finale. Officials at the club have major reservations due to concerns over hotel accommodation, the number of pitches required and the intense fixture schedule.   Chief executive Paul Barber also has concerns about even discussing a return to football while the coronavirus casualty rate around the country soars. “As creative as we want to be, people are losing their lives,” said Barber. “This is a serious, serious situation. We're totally driven towards completing the season but, at the moment, it is tough to talk about it.”   Machowski, whose company has handled almost 500 European games and training camps for top clubs over the past 24 years, reckons the number of teams involved also makes the plan impossible to pull off.   “You could maybe get away with it in the Champions League, for example, with a mini-tournament, because you're dealing with fewer teams,” said Machowski.   “But here you're talking about 20 teams and there's so much at stake. It's not like a pre-season tournament where there's a trophy at the end. “This is about titles, about relegation, qualification for the Champions League and Europa League, so no-one should be able to complain that they missed out because maybe the hotel, training facilities, travel or food wasn't right. “So it's not really workable, for so many different reasons.”   https://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/football/transfer-news/coronavirus-premier-league-plan-restart-21789901
