I think this is the least frustrating year in 11 seasons.

He's the Marlon F. Harewood of this generation but with less ability.

Letís hope Cameron Archer gets his chance eh?

Criticism of Davis is absurd. He never gets more than 15 minutes and often far less. Iíd like to see him up top with Watkins out wide (but interchangeable with movement) for two whole matches before I write him off. Especially as our wingers are unreliable. Trez is ok coming off the bench to help protect a lead but he canít dribble. El Ghazi is great 40% of the time, Traore 25%.

Absolutely agree with this. He needs a run of games. The club clearly rate him but he needs to be given the opportunity over an extended period. I think he is top drawer with his back to goal.

I donít think he will be a prolific goalscorer but he may yet make us a better team.

I chose not to rise to it. Davis is simply not good enough. Archer will be.

I thought Trez did ok, worked hard and had better match than Traore. Barkley and Ramsey came on and you could see the difference, bags of energy from Ramsey while Barkley had all the energy and mobility of a corpse.  Beat Newcastle on Friday and the table will look pretty good before those games with Spurs and Everton.

Trezeguet is a terrible footballer, always has been. Donít mistake hard work for an inability to make his brain and his feet do what he wants. Heís just all over the place, mostly ineffective and just occasionally does something that you donít expect. Traore is the same but just a little more productive.

No, I am a terrible footballer. They both play for us in the Premier League. Bit of a difference.

Read the Wulvs forum because I'm pathetic. Fucking hell, they're an ungrateful shower of Hi-Tec trainers-wearing, mullet-sporting, sister-shagging dog-fanciers. They've been in the top flight for two seasons, finished 7th last year and half of them want the manager sacked. It's like they've forgotten that they support Wulvs, not Bayern Munich.

I think Summer I'd be prioritising a wide right player, move Watkins wide left, get a center forward in and play Jack in the hole (McCarthy approves).

If you put the best bits of Traore (unpredicatability), Trez (work rate) and El Ghazi (shooting) together, you'd get one decent winger. As it is, we've got three very mediocre ones, who are inconsistent and mostly shite.

Barkley added to the evidence that he's not worth buying. Sanson, McGinn and Watkins did OK and the defence was sound other than the two chances they had second half. We're really crap to watch at the moment though.

Traore has been a huge disappointment, another winger who cannot beat a man. We gave the ball away so easily the Wolves players must have thought it was Christmas.
The defence were their usual dependable selves but midfield and forward of centre were were clueless. We need more creativity going forward, it seems without Grealish we can't score.
Ramsey was very tidy when he came on and i would rather see the younger players be given fifteen minutes than the usual players whom we know will not make a difference.

I'm happy with 4 points from Wolverlona. We're not in a great run of form, so I'm not going to complain about a clean sheet and a point.

If we have Cash, Grealish, El Ghazi and Sanson all fit for Newcastle then I can see us really doing a number on them and getting back to out early 3-0 victory ways. Disappointed with a scoreless game again but glad to see we've tightened up again and there really is a solid foundation being made for next season. Sanson looks tidy. A clinical finisher and a more consistent threat than Traore and we could be looking at having a very serious side.

A draw was a fair result I think.
Excellent first half, but a poor second with our midfield disappearing with the Sanson injury.

If there is money available in the summer, we need to be spending big on a striker. No pissing about.
Thatís no reflection on Watkins who was superb in the first half, and worked his bollocks off is the second, but the kid needs help. Davis is not that help and who knows if Wes will ever play again.

Smith should be developing Archer instead of sticking with Davis who has failed to produce time after time after time.

I actually think Davis has something but whether we ever see it is another matter. I personally donít think Deanís handled him correctly.

Apparently, he's brilliant at FIFA on the Playstation. so maybe he should stick to eSports? Had enough chances in a Villa shirt and flattered to deceive. Not good enough and a waste of a substitution - Give that spot on the bench to a reserve/youth player who knows where the goal is.

Come back 2020, all is forgiven. This year we continue to struggle, other than our brilliant defence we are so far away from the team that finished last year. Today once again the back 5 were excellent but Ollie deserves a special mention, he looked right up for it today and worked his balls off chasing everything. Love him. A very mature PL performance. He deserves better than being supported every week in attack by one-trick ponies.

Summer can't come soon enough.
