That said I stand by my earlier comments , we have better players than Cardiff and the players simply dont look up for the fight. I'd sell a few starting with costa coffee

All over & Cardiff win with a super goal by the talented Junior Hoiett.

It will be interesting to see how we do against Chelsea next Weds without Neves - I think we will be stuffed! A very disappointing night after taking the lead, but on balance I think Cardiff deserved it. We are as Angry says "powder puff up front", and I'm sure we'll all be looking forward to what Fosun will do in January. Hoilett gets Man of the Match. Wolves stay in 11th place.

Very disappointing after taking the lead. Won't be looking on Wednesday!! Needs a bit of a shake up I think because it's all slipping away.... goodnight everybody!

I was 28 when I joined this forum, I'm now 40. The current wolves side I was telling a friend the other day is the best one I've seen in my lifetime which says it all- life can be a cruel mistress. (Sm155)

Nowhere near enough quality in attack. Jiminez, for all his hard work and assists (which is one of the most overrated stats going) isn't good enough and doesn't look like scoring enough goals and of the wide players, Jota has been out of form all season, Costa is creating nothing even if he has one of his better games and Traore has plenty of pace but little else.
They said during the game that prior to today only the top four had conceded less goals. We know that we can play some good football and usually create plenty of chances so, as far as I can see, the problem is there for all to see. It will be interesting to see if anything is done in the transfer window.

I think our system works better against the better opposition.
I therefore would not change it in the upcoming match against Chelsea.
However..it is NNewcastle and Bournemouth after that,and I don´t think we can go on losing the midfield battle against those teams.

I will single out some players.

Rui Patricio...Not the goalie he was a month ago.His individual mistake handed Cardiff their equaliser on a plate.John Ruddy is knocking on the door after performances like this.
Patricio is of course a much better keeper than he has been last two games.I would keep him in for now,but he must improve or else it´s time for Ruddy.

Romain Saisse...Okay yesterday,but nothing more.Not convinced at all right back is his right position.Surprised to see Bennett replaced yesterday.

Ruben Neves..I don´t know what has happened with him.For me he hasn´t succesfully made the step up to PL.Suffers from playing in a midfield outmuscled,outnumbered and outfought..but Neves certainly is partly to blame.

Helder Costa...A complete waste of shirt yesterday.He was absolutely awful.Way to little end product from him and he doesn´t deserve to start games.Apart from Raul,each and everyone of our forwards is best as subs coming from the bench second half.

My preferred starting eleven against Newcastle.

Paricio

Bennett-Coady-Boly

Doherty-Moutinho-Neves-MGW-?(Vinagre..but he is not premier standard yet)

Traore-Jimenez.

Moutinho as the more defensive minded midfielder.

It’s a bit sad when reviewing that match that I am taking some comfort that we weren’t as bad as versus Huddersfield!

We’ve lost our passing ability, intensity in closing down and our marauding wing backs. Add to that when we get in promising situations out wide, we only seem to have Jimenez and a rolling tumbleweed in the box, controlled by four defenders.

Was Patricio fouled or was he weak? Thought big Willy played well, midfield was just okay, no more and those upfront are seriously lacking. Lacking in ideas, confidence, decision making, strength ........ and goals. Costa powder puff, Traore not trusted to play 90 minutes and Jimenez hardly prolific. I like the latter, his work rate is superb but as a centre forward he is becoming too isolated.

Chelsea next. Time for an Arsenalesque type performance. Please. We need a bit of encouragement. No idea who to suggest to play to stop the rot. MGW as Neves is suspended. Where is Dendonker? Who is Dendonker?

UTW!!

I would put MGW straight in for the suspended Neves against Chelsea.

Big Willy our MOTM for my money yesterday.

Chelsea won´t mind giving us a little bit more time in midfield.It will be interesting too see what impact it will have.I suspect we are in for a much better performance against Chelsea.

The key to get our game going is the central midfielders.So much is supposed to go through them.I have high hopes MGW will shine.

Onwards and upwards.There is always the next game.

Forever Wolves.
