Gary O’Neil has revealed what he’s showed Wolves players ahead of the final game against Liverpool.

Wolves manager Gary O’Neil made sure his players were recognized for their outstanding performances in the 2023/24 season, explaining what the club did to help the squad recall some crucial results from the season.

Wolves have had a great season in Gary O’Neil’s first season as manager, despite recent losses that have seen form fall ahead of the summer. There was little hope in the squad at the start of the 2023/24 season, as Julen Lopetegui stepped down just three days before the Premier League season began, leaving O’Neil to take over in a chaotic situation.

Soon after his arrival at Molineux, fans could understand why the club hired the former Bournemouth manager, as performance levels indicated that the season will be about more than just survival.

Several memorable outcomes, and most importantly, great performances, were recorded over the season, which Wolves will try to finish on a high note against Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday.

With the final game at Molineux against Crystal Palace last week, O’Neil spoke with the media about what he did to ensure his players were recognized for their performances this season.

Gary O’Neil celebrated his Wolves squad prior of the last match against Liverpool.
According to the Express and Star, O’Neil wanted to relive some of the highlights of the 2023/24 season with his players, and he revealed that the squad was shown a video highlighting some crucial occasions. “We created a film to show the players some of the incredible things they’ve accomplished this season.

“You return to Stamford Bridge, White Hart Lane, Tottenham Hotspur in the final few minutes, and Manchester City.

“There’s so many fantastic things that we’ve been able to achieve, but we need to find a way to make sure we keep moving forward.”

It was a lovely gesture to recognise the players’ efforts in what has been a dreary end to the season due to injuries and weariness, with Wolves losing six of their past nine league games.

Wolves players deserved to relive the best results of the season.
For all of the pessimism swirling about Molineux at the start of the season, it’s been a wonderful outcome for O’Neil and his side, with some of the performances noted by the manager epitomising the belief that has been put in the players. The success against Manchester City in September was critical in resuming the season after an unsatisfactory start, and the home triumph over Spurs followed shortly after.

Matheus Cunha’s hat-trick against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, as well as Joao Gomes’ stunning brace in North London, were notable moments in what has been a season to celebrate the manager’s accomplishments.

With only one game remaining, all attention will soon shift to the summer, when O’Neil will attempt to build on the highs of his first season at Molineux to make the 2024/25 season even more memorable.
