    Yeh, stopping completely often isnt as effective as just doing a lighter workout in terms of being fresh, the formers only more effective if they were completely exhausted physically or mentally, which clearly they aren't.

    I dont agree with this part. Who gives a fuck what pundits and others say?

    We MUST win something for the supporters. As someone who has been lucky enough to have a season ticket for 25 years, the best days out I've had in my life have been watching Liverpool win trophies. Istanbul 05, Cardiff in 06 winning the FA Cup, Cardiff in 03 for the League Cup, Alaves in Dortmund, the 01 Cup final against Arsenal. Ive been present at all of these moments and more. Its the fucking best feeling ever. That's why winning Trophies are so important. Its been that fucking long since we won one, Ive forgotten what it feels like.

    I agree we need to prioritise the league, but just dont forget how good ANY sort of cup final win is for the fans. Thats why its a MUST to try and win something.

    Why not just rename this thread to "Wolves post match (WARNING: involves juvenile squabbles)" and start again?

    Lovren if he's fit. Fabinho if he's not.

    Assuming Matip and Gomez are still out, I don't know as I don't follow injured players or care about knowing when they're due to be fit.

    That was boss, we were fucking monged all weekend.

    And Erm, hang the fuck on. I took you and your mates to Cardiff in 03 remember.

    Boss day that. £10 on Gerrard first goal 16/1 as well. Shame that fucking prick Ryan Giggs missed that 1 on 1 in the last minute. I'd had a fiver (I think, could have been a tenner) on Gerrard first goal and 2-1 Liverpool at 200/1. Hairy Welsh prick cost me a good wedge that day. I must have been the only Liverpool fan wanting him to score when he went through on goal.

    Rotation was expected and several changes. But I doubt he would have started Jones and Camacho if Henderson and Lallana were fit.

    Think of the ripple of fear that would have gone through Wolves if Lallana was on the teamsheet instead.

    I'm okay with handicapping our chance of winning the league so Piedro can have a piss up in London for an FA Cup final .....

    I'd say there would have been a ripple of fear going through the Liverpool fans as well.

    Cup Finals are the best (only know this as I've never been in a position when we can actually win the league on the final day of a season. 2014 didnt count as there was no way City were going to lose at home on the last day).

    Are you coming over if we've got a sniff this year? More than welcome to crash in ours.

    We are trying to win something .. the big dog ! How will the fans feel about that ? How will they feel if we fuck it up by injuring players in games that meaning nothing in comparison but which may greatly influence our chances in the one that really matters.

    It's that have your cake and eat it question again. We may end up with nothing but it won't be for a lack of trying or planning.

    You know what gets me in this whole debate ? The hypocrisy (I'm not pointing fingers at you Pete). There's previously been a debate on here (last season) on what matters more, the PL or the CL, and those now crying about fielding a weakened team in the FAC are the ones that were adamant the PL was the ONLY one that matters after 30 years. Hypocrites.

    I know what you mean and agree to an extent... the problem I've got is Wembley. I fucking hate the place. Euro finals and Cardiff and old Wembley were boss. This new one just stinks of shit. I wouldn't go there again.

    It's different in hypothetical situations where "you win the fa cup or the league"

    In reality watching an abject display like last night gives confidence to our rivals and makes teams who would have been quaking, now think there's something to be taken from us

    I think "debate" is a bit strong. You said one thing, everyone else told you to shut the fuck up.
