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.


haven’t watched the match, but on recent showings your first point is hard to disagree with. All 3 have something, but none of them really have enough. I think El Ghazi is probably the pick of the bunch, just about. But none of them are top 6 PL quality and it’s starting to tell, especially with Jack injured.

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.

Very true Mark. Ollie is quality, and if we can find somebody else like him, you could actually play him, Grealish and the new player in any of the front three positions, a bit like Liverpool do with Mane and Salah etc.

1 goal conceded in last three. A win, a draw and a defeat. Without our stand-out (attacking) player.

Sums up where we are overall. The best teams are always built on solid defence first. We've got that. Elmo hasn't done that badly over the past 3 games all things considered.

5 goals scored over the past 8 games highlights our issues though. Barkley, Trez, AEG and Traore aren't doing enough, yet all have been great at points through the season and have had us singing their praises.

The truth is when players costs the sort of money that we've spent, that's what you'll get isn't it? We need more investment up front. Watkins and Grealish perform week after week and we're undoubtedly a better team when the latter plays.

I switched on too late to see the match, but they were looking at the action afterwards. Watkins was really unlucky with the one from range that hit the bar. It looked like it got a tiny deflection and might have gone in if the dog head player hadn’t got a slight touch. Not sure if it’s just my perception, but there seems to be loads more deflections than usual, either resulting in goals going in or just missing.

Really? That's when Portugal are opening for Brits to visit. I thought you moved there to get away from them.

Best season in 11 years and the summer can't come soon enough? Mind you, we played "pub football" then.

agree, out of the 3 Traore has the ability to be a top 6 player, will he ever become disciplined enough though.?

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.

You forgot stone washed double denim and tasseled loafers with terry towelling white socks.

I think the ridiculous expectations are a product of most of them spending much of their lives supporting Man Utd or Liverpool, and failing to re-calibrate their expectations in line with reality.

They kill any game they’re involved in, the five-at-the-back bunch of twats.

100%. They create nothing from open play. If you looked into the dug out and saw the manager wearing a baseball cap, you wouldn't be surprised.

Can't imagine when fans return that the 60,000 season ticket holders they have will be happy watching that bilge every other week.

Gives them a built in excuse as to why the can barely get a over 30k, I suppose.
