    Wolves A Post Match Thread 4 - 3

    Biggest error from Puel today was not startin Choudhury imo. He's much more mobile than Mendy and has, from what we've seen, a better range of passing than both. We missed him today. Shocking first half performance littered with mistakes and gave ourselves a mountain to climb. We did climb it but then slipped with 3 minutes to go. The goal was inexcusable at the end. Morgan was nowhere near Jota seconds after Evans had just bust across to cover him to allow Schmeichel to pick up.

    Southampton Home post match, 1-2 loss.

    Not sure that would've been anymore effective due to how far forward Ricardo was/was allowed to be because Southampton sat back. Imo, at that point in the game, there wasn't really an option on the bench that would have altered the game. Goes back to the 'big striker' argument again.

    Southampton Home post match, 1-2 loss.

    Why though? Ricardo was barely in our half after the red card. Might as well have rolled the dice and gone with one of the attacking options.

    I'm not sure I did

    Southampton Home post match, 1-2 loss.

    We were poor today and the makers of our own downfall. Kasper's kick out for the first goal was woeful and Mendy made a hash of it. The second goal was an absolute shambles and was criminal to concede straight after being gifted a lifeline with the red card. That game was always going to be tough as soon as went 1-0 down and the second goal on HT gave us a mountain to climb. A bad day at the office.

    Who would you have brought on instead? The out of form striker who gets jeered by his own fans, the young centre back or the defensive right back? You could have pushed Ricardo forward with Simpson behind but even that would have been pointless as Southampton sat in.

    Southampton (H).. pre match thread

    Barnes coming back does give us some interesting flexibility for this game. Be keen to see how we line up tomorrow and I expect him to be involved at some point. Want to see a response from the Newport game. We're playing against a weakened Southampton side at home and have an exciting opportunity to push on and tighten our grip on 7th in our push for Europe and we are more than capable of doing so. On paper, a fantastic round of fixtures for us - West Ham have Arsenal, Wolves have City, Watford are on the road and Everton and Bournemouth play each other so somebody will drop something there. Let's take advantage of that tomorrow.

    “Nothing to play for now”

    Think I big reason that we coughed and spluttered over the line last season was because we were in the first stages of trying to change the system with a squad largely unsuited to that. This season, we've improved a lot in certain areas - most notably at fullback imo - so I don't expect us to struggle as much. Europe is a bigger possibility too, as we are just over halfway and are leading the 'best of the rest' pack by a couple points rather than playing catch up to Burnley. That'll be a nice incentive for the players regardless of the cups.

    Eldin Jakupovic

    Fine by me. We're clearly a little stranded with freedom to move in the market because we have too many players deemed surplus to requirements, a category which Jakupovic falls into. Having Jakupovic behind Schmeichel and Ward is a little unnecessary as we have a good crop of young keepers at the club who can act as emergency cover. A move to play-off chasing Championship side would be a good move for him.

    Fousseni Diabate

    Any loan is good move for Diabate right now, he needs the minutes. He cost us next to nothing and we'll likely be able to recoup the fee if we decide to sell him on at any point during his contract so am happy to persevere and give him more time to develop.

    Wilde Donald Guerrier

    A Haitian left back playing in the Azerbaijani league has to be one of the weirdest 'rumours' for a while

    Che Adams

    Lots of positives to bringing Adams in: has a reputation for being a powerful, athletic and quick player, sounds like he has a good work rate and attitude, local guy, young talent and doing well in the Championship. Keen to see if there is any truth in this one.

    Iborra Joins Villarreal

    I liked Iborra as a personality in the squad and he had some qualities. He turned out a reasonable signing whilst being far from spectacular and perhaps not the best fit for English football. Wish him every success at Villarreal and hope it works out for him. Iborra wasn't top of the list of people to shift but this move has turned out to be surprise bonus for us this window insofar as the fee is concerned. He was a bit part player on decent money so to recoup £9mil back of the reported £10.5mil we spent is good business and gives us some more flexibility to make additions.

    Season over!

    Can't be arsed reading crap like season over because we've been knocked out the FA Cup. Yeah brilliant, lets just quit now rather than battling on for Europe and a 7th place finish. Yes today was a very disappointing defeat, but saying season over is a stupid overreaction.

    Kelechi Iheanacho / Nacho Man

    As ever, Iheanacho didn't help himself massively but he was hugely isolated today. Alone vs a back three with Ghezzal and Okazaki playing absolutely shocking behind him. The only chance he got came from a Newport error. I didn't think he was our worst player today and hope he can turn a corner with us but he needs to show more fight and desire.
