Pity we didn't finish with a clean sheet but 2 cm over the line makes it a goal.

There are some thugs in their team besides Minging Minger. Luiz tried to give Traore a forearm smash as he skipped around him before he crossed to Jimenez for the goal.


Luiz was like a fly weight trying to slug a heavy. He was just swatted away.

Two very limited sides, with limited growth due to the patterns they fall back on.

Its a shame that Wolves have fell away from what they were building from Rolls Royce construction we now see a Go Cart assembly.

:shock:


Much depends how you wish for your team to evolve tactically.

Take Leicester City as an example.

When they won the Premier league it was with a limited tactical plan, building Go Carts.
Limited time frame before its found out and passed.

Todays Leicester City, Rodgers trying to create a Rolls Royce.
Watch their goals against Arsenal from last Friday night.

Vardy has grown as a player, not just looking for the ball over the top.
Leicester score goals through three, four or five player combinations, as against Arsenal.
Count the number of consecutive passes in the final third before a strike at goal.

That's a different priority during coaching sessions.

I had similar thoughts as well :lol: but his intent was a disgrace :twisted: . Perhaps that's why Jonny clattered their winger soon after which sadly was the preliminary to their equaliser.

Nuno out and Rogers in.
In, out and shake it all about.

If Nuno needed replacing I would go for Wilder.

I'm not sure why we need to debate replacements, but Fosun would undoubtedly call upon their international network for any replacement. The Lambert experience probably ruined any chances of UK lesser lights being granted a shot.

Very unusual for a Portuguese coach to go for a very direct attacking philosophy.

There has never been any intention to buy in players in wide forward positions who would look to keep the ball and build the play.

When your giving the ball away repeatedly in forward positions it don't half put a strain on the midfield to cover the open field on transition.

Especially when its not the most athletic.

International break, actually the other day some Spurs friends were asking about Nuno.

Last season, with no European distractions, we played solely for PL position and also to impose our game on the opposition, which we did very well. This time around, we have a very hectic schedule and also the opposition know how we set up and play, so a bit of tweaking is required. We cannot play as well as last season with a regular Thursday/ Sunday routine, add in international games and you see why players look a bit jaded and treading water. We are trying to get a decent balance between PL and Europe and are not faring too badly thus far although the quality of play of last season is missing. It will return in time, maybe next season or if we exit the EL soon. It is all about evolving slowly and managing a hectic schedule with a small squad of players.

In all fairness to you, KK, that is one of our two biggest problems. That and not converting chances.

After 12 games last season we had the same number of points as this season having scored four goals fewer and conceded two goals fewer.

All in all we're doing OK and are playing just as good football if not better having had injuries to Bennett, Doherty and Boly whereas we had a regular starting eleven last season.

Keep the faith! :wink:

All the best sides in World football have an ability to pass in combinations in the final third, even those with supreme individuals accept this.
I just don't get that the coaches at Wolves don't work on this incessantly.
