To quote the Factory of Sadness video...."It's like they're playing a different sport to us".

That was the worst performance I have seen from Kodjia, didn't look interested. At least the groundsmen won't have to roll the pitch as Cavaleiro did that throughout the first half.

Destroyed. No bones about it, much the inferior team. Still look aimless. Came in to the game totally cold, looked two steps off the pace. Questions for Bruce to answer again.

A horrible performance inline with the 12 months we've had under him.

Very, very poor year under him. The trigger finger should still be twitchy if Xia is the ''big shot'' that he claims to be and failure isn't tolerated because he's tolerated 12 months of it now.

They are the best team I've seen in this league so far - they look too good to be in this league.  We, on the other hand, look every inch a team of 'Championship' players.   Shocking performance second half.

That was the most obvious defeat before the match on paper. Wolves have CL quality forwards, we have Alan fucking Hutton. If we want automatic, going to have to be 2nd. That's very hopeful though.

Shocking away performance. Exactly what we saw last year.

Mentality was all wrong from first whistle. Yes you need to be cautious but simply refusing to cross the halfway line. Shameful.

It's not good enough considering what we have spent and have in the squad.

At least we're in the pack this season but there is a gulf between us and Wolves. They'll get automatic promotion comfortably I reckon.

Mind you as mich as we blame Bruce, the players need to take some stick as well. Awful

Depends what was done on the training ground this week and said in the dressing room.

If the gameplan was to defend deep and restrict Wolves the players were simply following that gameplan.

I imagine a few of them will be very frustrated with our tactics tonight. Hourihane was part of a free flowing Barnsley team. I'd imagine John Terry will be chuckling to himself at these tactics.

It took 86 minutes before we got a corner.
This is Steve Bruces Aston Villa.
Wolves are not great just well organised with a couple of decent players.
If we were as well organised with a plan we would be able to give them a game at least.

Our midfield still looks woefully short of players that can control a game.

Amazing what a bit of imagination in the transfer market can do. Totally outclassed by a very decent wolves team

Don’t get the comments about us being as poor as last year, we’re not, we were just beaten by the best team we have seen in this league since we were relegated. No need to panic.  More worried about the fact their Chinese owner has made better decisions than ours

Fair play to Hutton.  Put in a good shift.

Hutton was the only player to come out with any credit, well him and O'hare.

Clearly not any better than last year. How on earth have Wolves got so far ahead of us?

A plan. Spending wisely. Young hungry players and manager. Not signing prem cast offs. Not involving dinosaurs such as Keith Wyness, Steve Bruce, Stephen Clemence, Steve Round and Colin Calderwood is a good start

Hutton was our MOTM.

A better manager, employed by more savvy owners bought better players and uses them more competently than we do.

Thought the first half was ok. By the end of it Wolves had run out of ideas. However, the first ten minutes of the second half saw us way too deep and the rest is history.
