Wolves 0-2 Saints - Match Thread


Recommended Posts

Following a familiar pattern. 
come out the blocks fairly quickly and neatly....no end product. 
start to fade towards the end of the half. 
absolutely ponderous in the second half no doubt...again. 
All  fart... no shit. 

still awaiting a plan B.

Wolves playing a very high line is calling for a pass to forward runners over the top. Fairly predictable from Saints so far with plenty of possession but not doing much with it. Shooting wayward too.

Salisu looks confident, considering it’s his first run out. Nice crisp, well weighted passes and good awareness.

The part that concerns me a little is his tendency to drift well to the right, leaving only Bertrand to cover acres of space.

All too slow and predictable again with nobody willing to get between the lines or take a gamble. Passing it backwards just or the sake of it. Get some mojo and bang down on the accelerator. Nothing changes. Wolves are there for the taking but we need to be a lot more positive.

Djenepo and Redmond together just doesn't work. They're both so wasteful and it leaves our attack disjointed and ineffective. Both of them had good shooting chances but completely failed to judge the flight of the ball and sort their feet out in time to get a good connection.

Armstrong has been our best player by a long way.

No ideas or quality in the final third against an organised defence. Hasenhuttl-ball epitomised. Not expecting to see a plan B after half time.

Salisu's looked all right, though. Albeit against a team who've barely attacked. Bit rusty at times, but that's to be expected.

Just hope we can get through the rest of the game with no new injuries.

Well that's three and a half games for FF without conceding!

Don’t think he ever lost it, he went through a crap period and got labelled as our worst-choice goalkeeper after being sensational for us.

Since then, been treated to Gunn & McCarthy and they’ve not been half the ‘keepers Fraser ever was for us, still think he’s the best we’ve got and wasted him these past few seasons.

Bit he hasn't had anything at all to do

Quite frustrating that last few seconds before half time. Saints had good possession on the edge of their penalty area so why not sling it in there and try to score. Instead we managed to win a throw in.

We are the only team trying to score while they defend in numbers. This was always going to be a tough ask. No point singling players out already. 

Keep plugging away, and then Ralph needs to make a brave decision on the hour mark if its no happening. Happy with our work-rate, and the new boy doing just fine. 

We go this.

Not a fan of Redmond, but don’t think he’s been any worse than Adams.

Yes, I agree, but once the bandwagon rolls on here he'd have to score a double hat-trick to convince the doubters. FWIW I think he's been better today, trying to drive forward and make things happen, which was the criticism last time. He's kept the ball OK too, when he's been in tight corners. As to that chance, it was almost behind him.  I think he could do a whole lot better, but if Adams comes on we'll be moaning about his lack of a left foot. I don't mind criticism and I can groan with the best of them at a bad play, but I try and give credit where it's due.

Redmond has to go in the Summer.  Perfect opportunity to whip a quick ball in and goes backwards

Why would you bother whipping a ball into the oppositions box when you can play it back to the half way line and retain possession ffs.
