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 he has beans on a fry up. Cunt. I'm out.

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.
