Conor Coady should be Wolves Player of the month for December

Wolves fans are being asked for their votes for the Player of the Month award for December – and people should look no further than Conor Coady.

The captain is among the nominees for the final award of 2021.

Jose Sa, Max Kilman and Romain Saiss are all options, which reflects how well the team have done defensively in recent weeks.

And Ruben Neves is also up for the vote – his beautiful assists against Brighton a particular highlight of the month for him.

In all honesty, any one of the players nominated would be deserving.

It really was a great month in the end, with Wolves picking up five points. Most fans would have taken that if they knew the final two games would be postponed. That’s because it was a scary-looking fixture list with Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea all to play.

Wanderers could easily have taken a point.

Coady, in particular, was outstanding in those two games.

He cleared off the line in both, and made a staggering eight clearances against the Reds and seven against the Citizens.

He hardly put a foot wrong in the four games Wolves played, and helped the team keep two clean sheets, one of those against Chelsea.

Conor Coady deserves first Player of the Month gong after stellar December for Wolves

Jose Sa and Max Kilman have both already scooped Player of the Month awards this season.

It is not that neither deserves it here, it would just be nice for Coady to pick up his first of the season.

Saiss also has a very strong case to be Player of the Month for December, and few could argue against that if he took it.

But Coady was truly brilliant in December coming up against some of the best attacking players in world football.

Had it not been for him and his goal line clearances against Liverpool and City, the floodgates could have opened.
