Got to say I think Calderwood is having too big an influence on our style of play.

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.

You can slag Hutton off as much as you like but he was by far our best player today.

It was when he arrived that the quality of the football went south.

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

Another lesson from a modern, forward thinking manager and team.
Like Brighton last season, wolves show how the game should be played and how you will ge5 out of this division.

Our dinosour, waving his cock because we beat Burton and Barnsley, will never,ever,ever be progressive enough to play in a way that blows teams away like we were tonight.

Disapointed but not totally gutted. We didn't create enough though and can't complain about the result. It's how you bounce back after a defeat which is the main thing.

That was a disgrace. But if we win the next two I can forgive. If that becomes a regular performance again then we will be down here for some time.

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.

Hutton defended well although it never ceases to amaze me how a pro footballer can look so right footed and reluctant to use his left

Good job we had Alan Fucking Hutton because we'd have lost by more.

Anyone still think we've got the best squad in the division by a country mile?

The manager will take all the blame from me, when he plays Whelan ahead of Hourihane like that.

Scratch that. He gets the full blame when he plays Whelan at all.

The midfield was absolutely hopeless and Whelan put in the worst central midfield performance I've ever seen.

I'm getting tired of saying it but why the hell is Whelan playing as a bloody box to box midfielder? Put him in as a defensive midfielder and he's fine. Today, yet again, he players in front of Hourihane. And as night follows day, Whelan is completely knackered after 45 minutes.

I can't even get angry anymore, today was so bloody predictable. The only thing that keeps me going is Tactics Dim will be gone by the end of the month.
