Given the missing players and Wolves at pretty much full strengh that was actually a par result but that first half was shocking and they looked fitter, stronger and hungrier, that is unacceptable and concerning. McGinn way off form, the wingers too inconsistent and we can't wait for Wesley to come good while we sink. A word for Konsa though, I thought he was fine.

1st half atrocious, 2nd half better, but nowhere good enough.

Passing was terrible throughout.

Neves a free shot on the edge of the box?? Horrendous.

Not sure where you start with that. 

But one thing is for sure if Dean continues to play that formation with Wesley (probably the worst striker I’ve ever since in the shirt) then he won’t be our manager come Christmas.

Rudy Gestede was our striker last time we were in this league.

It's time to start holding Dean Smith accountable. I'm not saying sack the man, but for god sakes can we build and progress as a football club?

Today was absolute shit, start to finish. I still don't have a clue how that first half strategy was supposed to generate a result for us. It was truly pitiful.

Reminded me of Palace, piss poor performance and someone from our 2015/16 season running us ragged.

Really poor though. We need to sign some experience in January, they talk about 'game management' but show none of it. Could not stop the wave in the first half and could have bee 3 down at half time.

The front three are an absolute joke. Miles off the pace. Wes and Trez have been absolute flops so far and placing so much faith in players from Belgium and Turkey is costing us points every week.

Played for nothing and left with nothing which was fully deserved. If I compare Wesley's performance vs Jiménez's performance the difference is monumental. All Wesley does is goal hang, he literally does nothing for entire games.

Sounded as bad as the last league meeting there, two years ago. Wolves won 2-0 and were streets ahead of us in terms of movement and quality. Let's hope for a 4-1 smashing of them in the return game at VP.

One consolation is the consolation goal. At least we kept going for the full game. Strangely, if you look at the bare stats on the Beeb, it looks a very even game. 50-50 possession, one more shot on target for them, a few more off-target and three extra corners but they committed more than twice as many fouls.

Our reserves beat their third XI 2-1. Their first team beat our reserves 2-1. Let's see how we do against the jammy twats when our first team plays theirs.

Hardly our reserves, it was only really Grealish and Engels out.

Worrying beyond the result, which I’d have bitten your hand off for at half time.

Tactically predictable, overly reliant on a few players, squad thin and unbalanced. Lack of brains on the pitch making games 10 x harder than they should be.

Our summer looks a bit naive at this stage. Spent loads money but left gaping holes which introduced the risk that it was all up the wall.

In summary, we are doing a Fulham.

Enforced changes aside, shocking today.

Targett was horrendous, but not helped by the absolutely shocking tracking back of Trez and El ghazi.
Midfield abysmal. Another ineffective performance from McGinn (far too many in recent times), Douglas Luiz could have been a ghost today, and an off day from Nakamba (I’ll allow him that).

Wes stranded up front on his own with little support.

Dean really needs to change things up. I’d dispense with wingers and go 442 against the barcodes.

We’re sliding into trouble. Can’t even hide under the ‘unlucky plucky losers’ epithet.

I feel a new thread coming on.

Rudy was truly awful.  But he edges Wesley.
