High 50s would, let's be honest, exceed any reasonable expectations we had going into the season, and would be magnificent. But we do need Jack back.

The energy rates were high first half yesterday. Wolves were faster to everything after the break and their passing was better - and once Barkley was on the pace from Villa never picked up. If we’d have put Ramsey on earlier instead it might have made the difference.

Ramsey was sharp I thought when he came in.

That’s what I mean, maybe with his energy levels we’d have got a foothold in that second half as opposed to being on the back foot.

Biggest disappointment was the inability to win any 2nd phase ball. We slung loads of balls into the box b failed to pick up much possession when it was cleared.

Second half wasn’t great which clouds the first half where I thought we were pretty decent, probably the best attacking play we’ve managed without Jack. Our defensive progression remains remarkable.

If you’d offered me 40 points with 12 games to go back at the start of the season I’d have ripped your arm off. Easy to get frustrated with the inconsistency but second year back and we already look like a decent mid-table side. Play the market well in the summer and we can kick on again.

Agree Matt.  I think part of the inconsistency comes from us still not having the strength in depth to mix at the higher reaches of the table where we have found ourselves. 

Seeing the marked improvement this season though, I am
confident decisions will be made over the summer that will move us on again next season.

A big positive for me amongst all the frustration is our defence has tightened up. They say all good teams build from the back.

Disappointed with the way we played in a poor game - we seemed to have 1 tactic - pass, boot or launch the ball down the pitch in behind their wing backs

Jack seemed more interested in his phone than watching the game (I also could not wait for the game to be over and watch something else on another channel)

Only when bugger all was happening, which was most of the 2nd half.

He could have made his boredom look more realistic by going to get a balti pie and chips, and making Cashy stand up twice to let him past.

Or staring blankly into space, followed by shouting aggressively ‘do something’ in the vague direction of the pitch
