      Firstly the Human element;

      Please, take a moment and think of those who lost loved ones this season, I’m sure all of us knows of some one who has, in our own football family we think of Jürgen who lost his mother, and Ali who lost his father, neither could grieve properly, neither could be with their families at one of the worst experiences life throws at us, losing parents, just think about that for a moment, then think of what if that was my Mum, or my Dad, this season has been truly awful and unforgettable, one we all hope we never ever see again, so my players of the season go to them, for what they had to go through, for what they had to suffer, alone, away from their loved ones at a time when they should have been together.




      Rejoice;

      The Mentality Monsters are back, still missing three monsters but we can all rejoice in the fact that the biggest Monster of all, our fans are back too, and what a lift they give us, Six on the bounce we lost at home, first time in our Illustrious history, because we had no Fans, it’s so blatantly obvious that we as a club were indeed more affected by a empty stadium than any others,

      Even some of our players are a different animal, look at Sadio Mane, what a difference to that player of late, where a lot of us had written him off, just 10,000 fans singing our Anthem was enough to reignite his fire, now imagine another 50,000+ on top can  do, 13/2 we are to win the title next season, that’s 6 and a half to 1, so if you have a spare £60,000 hanging around 🤪 I’m sure Billy Hill will look after it for ya,

      WE FINISHED THIRD, THIRD FFS, after all we have been through, We Finished THIRD, now I know, I know , we don’t get F**k all for Second never mind Third but it does feel as if we have achieved something, and we have, We got our Mojo back, we, the fans and supporters, the players, our manager, we know we will be right up there challenging again, we all know City had it easy this time round, and we all know it will be so different next season, Don’t We,

      Three horse race between us, Chavs & City, no one else will feature, no one else has the quality, no one else can play with the intensity, two are awash with dollar, two buy their successes, but only one builds to win, only one has a well oiled machine with each component hand picked to perform their specific task, all colluding to be part of a system that when fully fit and functional is like clockwork,

       make no bones about it, Red tinted specs or not, we are the team to be feared, because we will be hungrier, we will have more desire, we will be more determined to put things back in order, we have been robbed of our right to celebrate properly, robbed of our celebration parade, we are owed that privilege to celebrate together as a club, fans, manager & players, robbed of opportunities to celebrate together, that is why we will win the title again next season and the CL would be a wee bonus too, in 19/20 our players were hungry, look at what we achieved, in 21/22, our players are Starving…….watch this space ! !



      The Mentality Monsters are back ! !

      Rhys Williams, Nat Phillips and Ozan Kabak deserve a huge amount of credit for our form in the last 10 games.  8 wins.  Brilliant.

      Such a shame about that January to March period but I'm fairly confident that we will be far more competitive next season.

      those two lads may or may not have a great future here but we owe them big time for the way they performed together. I think Nat was at Worcester at some point recently goes to show how you can improve when surrounded by quality players .

      Nat was at Stuttgart

      Rhys was at Kidderminster in the national league north

      Both have been brilliant in the run in. Some unbelievable work must have been done in training by Jürgen and the team over this last few months because the improvement in both has been amazing. Earlier in the season they were getting pulled out of position easily and their distribution wasn’t great

      That’s not a criticism of either more a pat on the back for them and the coaches

      Thats been my point mate they were not just thrown in Jürgen protected them and coached them until he thought they were ready. Whatever the road they travelled we have benefitted greatly. I think young Rhys has improved incredibly well and is so young and looks like he is going to be a monster in 3 or 4 years time and who better to train alongside of the Virgil

      Fabulous win and sublime achievement of finishing third in the league, which I have really doubt just over ten games ago! Credit to all despite unusual and weird seasons whereas a manager and players alike made horrendous mistakes in their judgement and attitude, due to the long injury list and lacking enough quality in the squad.

      The MOTM is quite obvious was Thiago ( Simply a World Class) mind you, he is the only one in our squad.
      Very happy to see Mane has recovered a bit of his form and he was close to MOTM, however, the young CBs both have had gutsy performances and their facial injuries were quite evident of that. They need to play more roles next season to develop to bright CBS the potential is there for sure.

      The squad clear out along with Gini, (dead woods) it should be Origi, Kaita, Kabak, Firmino, Matip, Adrian, and a few more.

      In should be a top Center Forward is a TOP PRIORITY, and Yves Bissouma, and possibility Pedro Neto from Wolves, and Klopp should keep Grujic and Minamino.

      Best Of Luck for Next Season and Injury-free. 

      Last laugh: The overrated B. Rogers once again has failed to achieve top four spots! he ought to go back to Celtic, and even now he will find it difficult there because S.G. is at Rangers!

      yes I saw a few diagonal 40 yard passes inch perfect. He is still a baby in terms of his strength to height but just weight until he matures he is going to be a beast of a player Just when Virgil gets to the wrong side of 34

      26 points from 30 thats back to 98 or 99 points in a season . How does Keane think about that form as defending Champs. We saw some real guts and steel in these last couple of months it looks good for next season.

      I would say very good. He'd take the ball off Mo and score everything himself.

      Salah is top dog on offense for us as the biggest beneficiary of our offensive set up. Kane isn't going to come here to press and make runs to open space for Salah to run into and score the goals, nor is Salah going to be happy having to do work defensively for Kane's benefit and no longer be top dog.

      Quote from waltonl4
      leaving Melwood mid season was not a smart move either

      We left Melwood because we had to. We were supposed to go last summer. We left with 30 league games still to go.

      Quote from RedPuppy
      A month ago we were 8th. Fantastic recovery.

      3rd, not too shabby all considered.

      Sky were getting very excited that we had apparantly "dropped out" of the top 4 after 15 minutes (aided by that awful commentator and his annoying high pitched shrieks) by their "As It Stands" table. There never is such a table. The first thing you see in any table is Games PLAYED, not games in progress. So the points count (and other stats) after games are completed, not a minute before. Giving people fictitious tables after every development is misleading, as it usually changes several more times well before the final whistle. So it's just pointless to confuse the viewer/listener/reader, and get their hopes up/down while there's still so much still to play itself out.

      We started the game in 4th and we ended it in 3rd. Going into the Southampton game, we were 10 points off 4th. Two weeks later, we finished 3rd and with a bit to spare. It's the 5th year running, that we've qualified for the European Cup, meaning Jürgen has done it in every one of his full seasons here. It's not remotely close to winning the league in terms of achievements, but at least it's some form of respectability, and we've finished the season on a high. Hopefully we'll take it into next season. Pre season is just 6 weeks away.

      The next thing to look out for is the fixture list in 3 weeks. Hopefully we'll get to play the biggest games such as the derby and City at home, at a time when confidence is high and the squad is fully stocked. Because if we want to win the league next year, then it's going to need to be.
