Wilson takes focus off Rhodes

Sheffield United manager Danny Wilson has warned his team there is much more to Huddersfield than their 40-goal striker Jordan Rhodes.

The Blades face the Terriers in Saturday's Championship play-off final and Rhodes has been in record-breaking form this season. The forward is the leading scorer in English football, but Wilson does not buy into the theory that you only have to keep him quiet to get the better of Simon Grayson's side.

"It's a nip-and-tuck game," Wilson said. "There's two good teams going into a game which either one could win if I'm perfectly honest.

"You can't look beyond him (Rhodes), with 40 goals you'd be foolish to think otherwise, but they've got other matchwinners in their side and we're not daft enough to think we only have to wrap up one player.

"They're a good side. They've got lots of attributes to their team. They've got good strength, good discipline, they've got goalscorers in other departments, there are threats coming from all over.

"We've got to defend well, but we did at their place and got a very good result. We kept a clean sheet and to keep Jordan quiet that day was a major effort from everybody and we're going to have to have the same."

f Klopp is available and willing to go there, they have to sign him up. Far better manager than Rodgers. The reason Liverpool fail in so many big games is the inflexible nature of their manager and his inability to find strikers who fit into his inflexible style of play. A feature of nearly every game that the team comes up short is the way the opposition midfield appears to overpower them. It's too easy.

est player award should not go to a player who's second best at all the importent categories (i.e goals, assists etc) just because his team is at the top. If you are not first you are last; if you're second you are the first loser ( looking at you Hazard). David De Gea for POTY.
