    Still love the guy but that was amusing.

    Dear oh dear that is an absolutely shocking penalty from Riyad

    My thoughts exactly. Nobody can absolve Wes of his responsibility for the challenge itself but it was clear as day what was going to happen. The ref had already told him that his next one would be punished. Everyone felt nervous during that period as it just seemed inevitable, especially with someone like Richarlison who is quick and agile and knows how to draw a foul. With such a large portion of the game to go, I don't see why you'd leave Wes on in those circumstances.

    I actually like Puel and the style he's been trying to implement but he did himself no favours today by failing to sub off Morgan. Everybody could see what was going to happen. Thought until then in the second half we were in control and looked the most likely to score.

    I'm not one of the Puel out brigade by any stretch but anybody with half a brain could see Wes was going to get a red card if he didn't get subbed off. It's so obvious. Daft from Wes to go in like that on a booking but he should have been replaced long before to stop it from even becoming an issue.

    Same reason he pronounced Mahrez as "Maurice" on MOTD during our great escape season.

    Watching this on a TSN4 stream and Don Goodman is the co-commentator. He is unbearable at the best of times but when Wolves are playing he's a different level.

    I think we've looked really good on the ball. I do get a bit nervous when we're trying to play out from the back but generally I like the way we're passing it around. It seems a bit more urgent and decisive than last season, with some actual intention to go forward and create something. Utd have defended well to be fair to them. Chilly is causing a lot of problems on their right but we are quite exposed on that side when we lose the ball while he's in their half. Gray's work rate has been brilliant, very impressed with him. Maddison looks like he could be quality but he seems a tad nervous to me which is understandable obviously. We controlled the half anyway, just lacked a goal.

    We are actually playing some decent football. Not quite got that final pass yet but we don't look awful at all.

    How is that not a sending off? Genuinely puzzling decision.

    Like it or not, we do have to learn how to play with the ball. We had a season where our golden formula of 20-30% possession and counter-attack sucker punches worked and we won the league, but teams wised up to it. We also lost a key player in Kante who won the ball or forced the error to start the counters. Not only that, but Vardy is approaching an age where he will gradually lose a bit of pace, and teams usually defend much deeper against him now anyway. We have to learn to play passing football, it's just how it is. Whether or not Puel is the right man to do that I don't know. Personally I quite like seeing us have the ball, but we're struggling to break teams down and we end up passing it sideways and backwards quite a lot because we're lacking that extra bit of quality you need if you're gonna play this type of football. I'd like to see what happens in the summer transfer-wise because I genuinely think with the right players we can turn possession into goals.

    I thought we were totally dominant and tried very hard to break down a really defensively set up team. I was really pleased with a lot of our attacking play.
