      This was always going to be hard game and we got our 3 points another professional performance.  1 massive step closer to the league title another fantastic performance from Hendo.  With so many late goals from this team I was also excepting a point from this when we got to the last 10 mins.   We've had a sensational season but looking back this Wolves team deserves to be playing in Europe deserve top 4 ask me.

      Good on Wolves for giving it a go, but let's not miss the real standout performance here. A team that lost its best forward, on the road, in a classic letdown game after beating its main rival, looks to be on the ropes after surrendering an equalizer, gets off the canvas, brushes off, gets control of the match again and scores yet another late winner to claim all three points and go up 16 points with a game in hand. Magnificent.

      Billy is the only one I've seen mention it but Fabinho made a big impact tonight. He looked out of sorts in the brief stint vs. United last week but he's got his legs back now and I thought him coming in and Hendo going a bit forward and wide gave us control of the midfield again. We don't win otherwise.

      It's been mentioned that Robbo struggled for part of tonight, but he also dug deep toward the end and made a vital contribution. Virgil was immense again, but so was Joe Gomez, my 2nd choice for MOTM after Henderson.

      I was surprised Jürgen went with Minamino when Sadio went off. I thought Takumi was a bit outmatched physically, to be honest. I believe he can get up to speed eventually, but it might be a while.

      If it is really a hamstring I suspect it will be the beginning of March before we see Sadio again. I don't think it will hurt us in the league race but he would be a major loss for the Atletico matches. We will need Divock, or Shaq, or Ox, or Adam or Curtis or Takumi or someone to step in and perform well.

      I expect not "some of the first team rested" but rather "11 changes" for the FA Cup match Sunday.

      Anyway, great win for us (again) and let's stretch it to 19 next Wednesday.

      Actually thought the game turned when Chamberlain came off for Fabinho. We actually started to keep hold of the ball a bit more and started to play.

      But Bobby loves the awaydays this season!

      Man, that was a tough one. Gotta hand it to Wolves, they aren’t scared of anyone. Really felt like a few of our guys weren’t really switched on this game. Wasn’t impressed with Gini, Ox was good first half but disappeared second half. Robbo apparently didn’t realize they were going to attack him and that Traore had enough speed to blow past him at will. Though Mo had a really poor outing, he needs to sort out his selfishness. Sometimes it works in our favor but tonight he was bypassing wide open players to take crap shots. Was glad to see Klopp sub Origi on for him.

      Really impressed with Minamino considering he played with a little knock and he slotted in pretty well.

      Fabinho helped us get some bite back.

      Overall, a good game to digest for the boys and see where they maybe went wrong. Learn from it and move on.

      Hendo motm for me.

      Hendo continues his rich vein of form, he was all over the place and in a game where he can set up goal and score one it is nice to see him get rewarded for all his hard work.

      The game was pretty scrappy and we defended for long periods of the game (especially in the second half) but we did create a few clear cut chance which we didn't take. This game as the scoreline reflects reminded me of how we played on the road earlier this season just finding ways to win, score the goal at the right time, defended well when needed it etc etc.

      I thought Gomez had a really good game using his pace well and tackling well. TAA was a threat for periods of the game on the right hand side and Alisson came up big when called upon which is what we needed.

      There were definitely more of the players who didn't have great games than those who did but as this season theme seems to be we just do enough to keep on rolling.

      Salah was disappointing again IMO. Ox could not find his place and Wijnaldum did his job but we lacked leadership in midfield.

      Thankfully, they are really mentality monsters.

      Wolves were terrific, he is building an excellent team there and were it not fir the Europa league I think they’d be scrapping with Leicester for 3rd place right now. It’s a big pitch at Molineux and they stretch it high and wide so it’s difficult to really get after them with the press.thryve got a couple of cultured midfielders in Neves and Mourinho and in Traore they’ve got an absolute monster of a player. All the credit goes to Wolves for their 2nd half performance but once again our lads roll up their sleeves and defend for their lives. I have Alisson motm for some great saves but Gomez was superb once again and Trent had a good game defensively as well. A few criticising Salah again for missing chances but he created most of them for himself and it was a superb piece of skill from him that led to the winning goal. Would have been happy with a draw so to get the win was awesome.

      Sometimes you have to give the opposition some credit. As for leadership I thought there was tons of it. We were clinging on at times in the 2nd half but the lads stood tall, rolled their sleeves and grafted for the result. I think there was more to praise in that performance than there was to criticise as the win was built on resilience and sheer will to win. This team just find a way to win.

      Surprised to read this. I thought Fabhino was awful. Kept giving the ball away and wasting possession.

      When Sadio went off, I would have preferred Minamino in place of Gini with Divock on the left. as  there was no out for Robertson after he  went off. Didn't think Gini contributed anything  last night, and unfortunately Robbo had a bit of a mare as well, but then he was up against probably the best right winger in the country. Traore, who is a monster compared to his dad, Jimmy, should be on our shopping list.

      However a great two points against a good side. Loved the "sad" photo of Coady Connor after Bobby's goal.

      Probably our toughest game of the season so far but I don't agree with a lot of what was said post match etc

      I think we were the better team and certainly had the better chances. Salah could have had a hat-trick and Firmino missed a sitter prior to his goal.

      I think the pundits are going a bit overboard and making the most of it as Wolves are the only team this season that's really given us a good go. Thought Traore was superb and turned Robbo into a pretzel on a few occasions but in terms of volume of goal scoring chances I'd say we edged it

      Credit to Wolves though they are a very good side. If they're able to play & recreate an atmosphere like that once the Europa League restarts, I wouldn't bet against them getting to the final

      Someone needs to sit Mo down and show him all the times when he should have passed instead of shoot, his decision making in this area needs some urgent f**king work. If he won't learn then sadly he needs to be replaced, because at the moment he is costing the team more goals than he's scoring.
      I also thought Robbo and Ox had quite poor games, but in fairness Robbo was run ragged by Traore and Ox just hasn't been himself the past few weeks, maybe not quite 100% physically.

      The main thing though is that we dug in weathered the Wolves storm second half and pinched a late goal.

      Was lucky Henderson took the ball off him for Firmino's goal as it looked like he was just going to dribble himself into a hole

      The worst thing he can do is miss a chance or two early on because he's capable of then spending the rest of the game chasing his losses and snatching at everything that comes his way

      Salah did dribble himself into a hole, again, its just lucky the ball bounced off a wolves defender and went to Hendo who slotted a lovely pass into Bobby.
      If I was Klopp I'd be giving Mo the hairdryer treatment, its really outrageous how seldom he passes the bloody ball, its bad for the team in terms of performance and morale, no wonder Sadio got so pissed off with him earlier in the season.

      Was still our brightest attacking player though. People get frustrated at his greediness at times but that's all part of his game and a big part of the reason he comfortably scores 20 goals every season. You just have to accept there will be misses and remember that he will almost always get into good goal scoring positions and create opportunities all by himself on a regular basis. Clubs pay millions for that and we're lucky as anything to have 2 of them playing either side of the best false 9 in world football.

      After everything that’s happened since Salah came into the team, I could never moan about his selfishness.

      He works so f**king hard and is on his toes the whole game. He was causing havoc last night and his intricate play in the box was the reason we got the winner.

      Every attacker has to be greedy to a certain degree but there's been quite a few times where he could have played somebody in and instead chose to snatch at a half chance himself.

      Not slagging him off as he is brilliant and his defensive work is magnificent but his decision making in front of goal can let him down. We're lucky our defence is rock solid & we're in a position were we're able to waste a few opportunities as we know 9 times out of 10 a goal or two will win us the game

      Every player can improve and the only thing Salah needs to improve is his decision making and evaluation of who has the best chance of scoring because at the moment its crap, he has the playing mindset of a spoilt and pampered child who refuses to pass the ball, its all me me me when in front of goal and the very best strikers are not like that.
