Suddenly after a loss each game looks a little more difficult.


Brighton give everyone a game on their own pitch so we expect a tight game.


One change for me and it depends who starts at left wing back.


If its Ruben Vinagre we carry on with Diogo Jota.

If we stick with Jonny I have to go with Ivan Cavaleiro and make sure he makes the pitch big by playing off the outside line.


Forecast Brighton 1 Wolves 2.

Two goals in less than a minute is what did us.
I expect normal service to be resumed and an away win,or a draw.

Traore starts for Jota.

Obviously we should be winning with the Doherty chance but wherever Brighton have put the ball in the box we have looked rather at 6s and 7s.

It is somewhat disheartening that Doherty looks our biggest goal threat, Costa failing to impose himself again.

Team is impotent. None of our "forwards" would ever have scored Murray's goal, split second, totally cool and pivoted the ball in without falling on his arse.

Still not won a match after conceding the opener since Bristol away.

That kind of defeat hurts.


Chasing the game the Wolves found the tempo but couldn't find the finish.

Nuno only plays one way with one style but somewhere, he has to try and formulate a Plan B.....otherwise it'll be a long, hard, frustrating winter. First time we have lost two consecutive games under him, over to you, Nuno, thinking cap on.

Glenn Murray


When everyone is racing about a bit frantic in the box a regular goalscorer stays calm and collected waiting for his moment.

There's a lesson Wolves.

A real Gerd Müller-esque goal today.

But that's a special skill and it's exactly the type of player we don't have. Our inability to score clinical goals will come back and bite us if it's not sorted out. Sort of reminds me of Spain a couple of world cups back, they were essentially playing the Barcelona style but without a Messi up front it was nowhere near as effective.

A real bottom half of the table performance. Top six my arse! Yes the ref made a big mistake, but we had 90 minutes to score and once again failed to do so. Raul is great at setting other players up and would be perfect in a front two, but as a lone striker with wingers who are not scoring the decision needs to be made to bring in a striker who can bury the ball when we make chances instead of just trying to create opportunities all the time that are not taken. What a fantastic display of passing to the keeper and droping the ball on a defenders head.

Fully agree. One of the commentators made the point that we should have brought off a defender and gone 4-4-2 at the end. Would have been worth a try.

I thought many aspects of Wolves game were very good.


The system and structure work fine and enable the individuals the opportunity to showcase their talents.


Unfortunately in this stage of their evolution these young forward players very often choose the wrong individual option.


When in the opponents half Jota Costa and Traore more often than not lack the AWARENESS of each others position.

This then creates situations when the pass is not given and the possibility of combination play breaks down.

These players tend to stick with the one option, run with the ball.


Your not going to break past enough players enough times before Looking for options on the ball.


Patience required while these players learn through their mistakes.

Oh for some heads up one and two touch football in the final third. We have to pass the ball better.

He was a spawny get, that ball 9 times out of 10 would have gone out for a throw in to us as the initial shot was pretty shit.

How we never got at least a point out of that game beggars belief?

I agree 100% and the fact that some are yearning for the likes of the aged donkey Glen Murray to be wearing our colours beggars belief too.
