Wolves vs Liverpool

Crufts-trophy
Well it is back to Wolves again this time in the FA Cup which is the Crufts of the footballing World. Wolves have a good pedigree in the FA Cup my chums and it wouldn't be barking to think they have a chance again this year. They have won the FA Cup four times, most recently in 1960, and finished second in show on a further four occasions and this will be a mastiff game for them.

I must admit to having a soft spot for them as I once knew a young lady from nearby Willenhall and have fond memories of her and the area. But this is no time for sentiment. This tie will be a god fight and we need to hound them from the start, grab the game by the scruff of the neck and go for the throat from the off.

Personally I would not feel too ruff if we did not win the FA cup this year but am just concerned that we don't get into a rut after the City defeat. Also I don't think it does the squad or young pups any good to feature once and for it to end in defeat. I would therefore go for no more than 5 squad and young players (the best are out on loan) and even then it will be a tough match. I will take the recent League meeting as a pointer for this game and if we can get the lead I think we will walk it 0-2.

I had a little peke at Klopp's team sheet and can reveal the team as Migs, Hoever. (or whoever) Lovren, VVD, Moreno, Fab, Keita, Lallana, Shaq (possibly Ejaria), Sturridge, Origi.
