The final game of the season for Wolverhampton Wanderers is on Sunday and for many fans, the 2020/21 campaign just can’t end soon enough.
It’s been an extremely turbulent time for a variety of reasons, and a lot of people are genuinely worn out by what they’ve witnessed this time around.
There’s one final game to play, and it’s at Molineux against Manchester United.
Hopefully the presence of fans will help the players end the season in the right way.
As it’s the last game, Nuno could throw a fair few curveballs, but who should he consider playing against the Red Devils?
He got a surprise start against Everton, and one wonders if Nuno will keep John Ruddy in goal for the final game.
There hasn’t been any word on his contract situation, so it could potentially be a farewell match for the 34-year-old Englishman, who becomes a free agent this summer as things currently stand.
Hoever has had to be very patient in his first season at Molineux, with Nelson Semedo playing the bulk of the games for Wolves on the right of the defence.
The Dutchman – who cost around £13.5 million all in (BBC Sport) – has mostly looked good when given the chance though, and perhaps deserves a run out against the Red Devils, who he played fantastic against in the reverse fixture back in December.
The management of Kilman has felt quite strange this season.
He’s been one of the club’s better defenders this year (the bar has not been particularly high admittedly), and should keep his place in the starting XI for the visit of United.
Centre-half Marques is one of the best young prospects at the club, and has regularly wowed for James Collins’ U23s this season.
The 18-year-old has made Nuno’s first-team bench a few times but is yet to debut, so perhaps he could get a chance against a United side that will likely rest key players ahead of the Europa League final.
There, really, is no need for any of the likes of Conor Coady, Willy Boly or Romain Saiss to feature.
Like Marques, Cundle has also had a really good season with the U23s and perhaps warrants a chance with the first-team.
The central midfielder is another promising young talent who perhaps needs a first-team chance, with the decline of Joao Moutinho unfortunately now quite obvious.
Nuno didn’t say why Owen Otasowie wasn’t part of the matchday squad against Everton, and there has been no information put out by the club regarding any injury or anything.
The management of him has felt even stranger than that of Kilman at times this season.
That said, we aren’t privy to what goes on behind the scenes.
He is a very exciting talent and looks totally dominant when he plays for the U23s, and it would be really good to see him get one last first-team outing on Sunday if he is fit.
