Adama Traore keeps himself quiet as he absolutely rubbish.

Every time he has a poor half, he has to do 100 bicep curls on each arm.

Iím going to cut Elmo some slack, as I think heís been brilliant for us.
Yes, heís, probably, struggled a bit since coming back in. I guess at 34 the pace of the prem has caught him up.   
He has been involved in two clean sheets, though, and will always give his all

Thought Elmo played well tonight. Not sure why Adama felt the need to grease his guns at half time though. Think heís found his level at Wolves.

Traore is Tony Daley on steroids.

I like Elmo, and my own two personal highlights from this game were entirely of his making.  In first place was Elmo's foul throw, in the second half.  Very close behind, in second place, was the look of astonishment on Elmo's face when he was flagged for the said foul throw.  I may be wrong but I suspect, sadly, that this will not make it onto MOTD tonight.

I agree. He has been a decent pro for us in the Championship and in the Premier League when heís had to step in.

Just because Dean Smith doesnít rate Guilbert doesnít mean Elmo should get stick. Heís not as good as Cash and is there as cover. Also, weíve had worse players in the past providing cover than Elmo.

Tony Daley was a much better footballer. Far more range to his game, both in providing chances and scoring them. Traore has just become a body builder playing football.

Iíd have personally stuck with Guilbert but he did had some shockers last season too, to be fair. Smith knows much better than me though and he hasnít got much wrong, so Iíd happy to give him the benefit of the doubt with the decision. Plus, as I said before, itís not always just as simply as who is the better player anyway.

Elmo was fine today. Not great, not awful. Heíll move on in the summer and we will improve that area but, again, Iím not sure exactly what people were expecting our back up right back to be like at this stage of our development.

Iím not sure I think thereís a good player in Adama he showed that last year. Heís just struggled this year.

He didnít work at his game. He has a lot of raw talent but he never developed it. In a way heís a much shitter version of Gabby, who really had it all (could score left and right foot, great in the air and blistering pace) but never took the big step to the next level. Another who focused way too much on bulking himself up instead of working on being a better all round striker. It too away his speed and athleticism and made him predictable.

Defensively thought immense Vs Wolves.
And in all his showing these last matches he's been clever with his experience in how to deal with opposition
Game tonight saw him get forward more in first half especially. Well played. Give him to season end and then can look to release a player who will always be someone to count on.
Hoping he gets a repeat goal of last season v Newcastle where he reins neat post and heads in . Has had that chance twice last few matches just needs to get right contact.

Distribution tailed off second half but though very impressive and eases concerns of those who may have them on evenings showing especially.

Cash back in for Spurs but I even have Elmo considered at centre half if Mings is out injured and cash is back for Newcastle. No need to rush anything as Newcastle match next Elmo capable for this match.

Iím not convinced on that. His game showed growth last year, but for whatever reason heís slipped back this year.
