It was a telling sign that Nuno doesn't think Jose works hard enough to play any part against city. Of course he is right. Which begs the question what future does he have with us. I expect to see him back against Villa but I think we should be looking to sign a better option in the summer.

That’s what happens when you let agents decide who to sign and who to sell, uninterested players who don’t want to be here and players who are just passing through on their way to the big Clubs, one or ‘em even managed to sell Doherty to a Club who’s Manager doesn’t rate him very highly. could do worse than buy him back, sure Nuno didn’t want to lose him.


2.) 03 Mar 2021 11:48:14
Are you suggesting Jorge Mendes has illegally tapped up a player who he doesn't represent and got him to leave Real Sociedad and join us on loan. Please name the agent involved and how he/ she is making the decisions.


3.) 03 Mar 2021 11:52:40
Doherty admitted that he knew Nuno wanted to sell him. So Spurs thought they got a good deal for 15m.


4.) 03 Mar 2021 14:47:22
Jas; Didn't suggest any Mendes involvement, it's been widely reported for at least twelve months that Sociedad have been trying to move the player on and his agent who seems to be Nick Arcuri has been trying to get him a move to the Prem Man U, Spurs and Newcastle were linked (mainly by said agent) and he made it happen. which is his job but doesn't mean the player is happy to be here or wanted the move or indeed that he was the player or even the type of player that Nuno wanted. seems as if it's a move orchestrated by administrators and agents with little or no consultation with the "Head Coach".
That's all I was saying.

Think it's fair to say that the gap between us and Man City is bigger than between us and Chorley.
Will we get relegated. NO
Are we playing relegation football. YES
By that I mean the teams at the bottom are playing as well or better than us. Fortunately they had a much worse start to the season than us.
Proper recruitment needed in the summer to stop the slide.

Oh behave Shares! Before last night we were u beaten in five Prem matches, three of which we won! In fact in the last month alone we have accumulated as many points as Sheff Utd all season! Sorry but that's just NOT relegation form so no point telling me it is! If every team that gets humped by the best team in the world is suddenly relegation cannon fodder then there will be no one left in the league! Look last night was poor all round no arguing that BUT we played what is probably one of the best squads this league has seen for a VERY long time and with 20 minutes to go we were drawing 1-1?! I don't mind peeps hitting the panic button when we lose to Brom but if we do it when we lose to City then frankly the clubs on a hiding to nothing! 👍.


2.) 03 Mar 2021 19:10:30
Great post Bully’s.
I think it’s time to experiment with formations and personnel even if we lose a few games. We’ll have players returning from injuries in the coming weeks so let’s use the squad (including the youngsters) to see where we’re going and see if a few players rise to the challenge and hopefully save us some money in the transfer market this summer. The planning for next season starts now.


3.) 03 Mar 2021 19:56:15
No noise from the Villa numpties tonight, then! FWAW.

After the bennies invasion of our forum last night giving it the big in wonder if they will appear tonight clearly your not all that if you lose to the bottom of the league who played half an hour with 10 men but console yourselves because ya massive aye ya.


5.) 03 Mar 2021 20:05:53
I remember the day when E and S only covered Wolves - I know It was a long time back (1970’s) and they now cover Albion, Villa and Walsall ( what about BCFC? and it seems the City v Wolves match was covered by the Villa reporter. Has young Mr Edwards been taken ill? And young Mr Judah, where was he? I certainly hope those 2 young men are fit and well ( together with their families) . This was the biggest match of the season guys! I for one really missed you!


6.) 03 Mar 2021 21:07:04
Edwards has a week off, it's his birthday and anniversary this week. Not sure about Judah.

I didn't say we would get relegated. I said we were playing relegation style football and explained my reasoning. So no point telling me we're not. We've been extremely lucky, to put it mildly, in recent games and even last night at 1.1 we were extremely lucky not to be 4 behind.

YES Man City are a brilliant team and there's no shame in losing to them but last night was one of the worst performances against them that I've seen all season from anyone. However, it may yet have a silver lining. If that doesn't stir our players into being stronger, braver and take more personal responsibility, then nothing will.


8.) 03 Mar 2021 23:08:14
My point is Shares that you can't judge it off last night, this is a team that beat Liverpool 4-1 AT Anfield. We looked like what we are last night, a team that still desperately needs a striker. Hard to be taking out attack seriously when they don't start with one but it was clearly tactical and if we'd nicked a point we would have all been happy with it.
I don't need to tell you we aren't playing relegation football cause the stats show it. To say we were lucky to go five unbeaten when three of them were wins in the Prem is not especially realistic either. Let's see how we do agaisnt Villa and take it from there. No matter where we were in the league going into the game our season shouldn't be defined on how we play agaisnt what is frankly already a Championship winning team!


9.) 03 Mar 2021 23:58:48
Your idea of relegation form must be different to other peoples as according to the PL form guide over the last 6 games, we are 4th behind Man City, Chelsea and Leicester (on goals scored) therefore there are 16 teams in worse form than us including, Man Utd, Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham.


10.) 04 Mar 2021 11:47:00
Lots of fine margins in games especially in the premier league. Many we could have lost and have taken points from and likewise many we should have won and dropped points in. Over the course of the season you always hope it evens out.


11.) 04 Mar 2021 17:23:48
Good point North Bank re-E an S. If we go by the traditional Black Country then only Wolves and Walsall should be covered, Albion at a push. For me Albion are one of three teams in Birmingham. Villa should not be covered at all. Likewise Birmingham Post and Mail should not cover Wolves. It's all down to money and advertising sales.


 

 

14 Feb 2021 12:56:40
Very poor first half. Traore sloppy, Jose disinterested, donk woeful effort to stop the cross for goal. Rui and Pedro aside, they all have to do much better. But can they.

Lot's of criticism on here of Nuno. Words like "clueless" "unforgivable" "lost the plot"
So for all the regular posters.
Should he stay or should he go. No fence to sit on.
STAY or GO.
For me it's STAY.

The way I feel right now I wouldn't care if he quit today, but I know that's just my anger not my heart.


2.) 12 Feb 2021 14:51:38
Stay - have never waivered in my support but am v afraid he will walk as club has been badly mismanaged since last summer and I don't think it is him that is to blame!
However if we get the old Jimenez and Otto back we are only a good AM away from being solid again. Actually we are probably only modest upgrades at GK and CD plus some strengthening of the bench at CF and AM from being in a position to renew our journey towards serious contention at the top of the league. Guess that is what makes this year so annoying - it was so avoidable and we were so close to even further progress before we, seemingly with our eyes open and fully cognisant of what we were doing, pressed the self destruct button. Note many posters on here were v happy with the "Year of Transition! " but it was obvious to me as I told you at the time that this was an insane strategy fraught with difficulty. Hence whilst most were dancing with joy at our signing 3 kids, {Vitor is 21 on Saturday so not really a kid, he is older than Neto, just a young player who hasn't managed to get much adult football yet presumably because his previous club, Porto, didn't think he was very good! ) who presumably do well on FIFA but who had no track record, (just over 40 senior appearances including subs between them) on real pitches -if anyone had watched Silva for more than 10 minutes that was obvious- I gave the summer a v generous 4 out of 10.
"If" and "but" the 2 greatest players ever to play the game but if we hadn't signed Silva, Vitor and RAN but 3 players who could have contributed, and could well have been a lot cheaper as we have agreed insane prices for these modest players as well, we would still be a Europa League challenger instead of scrabbling around in the sewers of the league.
It is of course made worse by the fact that Vitor and RAN will almost certainly leave at the end of the year and sadly Silva wont!
So the year and the pain will all have been for, assuming we avoid relegation, at best nothing!

great post.


4.) 12 Feb 2021 15:43:49
Is it that simple?! I want Nuno but not this new updated model! Last season right up until the first lockdown he was one of the best managers in the league! Now he seems so riddled with self doubt that we can't even manage competing in two games in the same week?! We've discussed before Shares that I think his current plight is beyond footballing issues and with that in mind as mentioned before I think he'll be gone at the start of next season eitherway. I hate to say it but I honestly can't remember the last time he looked happy and that's always going to make life harder let alone when your a Prem manager harder. The club won't and shouldn't sack him but I could see an agreement being reached if he understandibly is sick of living in a different country to his wife!


5.) 12 Feb 2021 16:02:55
I think he'll be gone in Summer Bullys mate too, if he does go then it's up to us aka the fans to give him a send off he'll remember to show our appreciation for him.


6.) 12 Feb 2021 16:13:09
I think it's a perfect storm of woe for Nuno. Cut off from his family in Portugal. Living in a hotel. A whole catalogue of injuries. Transfer decisions reputedly made behind his back last summer. If he hasn't been in agreement with signings, that's really serious and he would be entitled to walk at the end of the season. If every signing, in and out, was fully approved by him, he could be sacked if we don't buck up. I think he's the finest human being in football management but nice guys don't always come first. As a Wolves fan I don't fear a Nuno-less future as Fosun would appoint a big hitter to protect their investment. They won't be short of applicants. Remember, Fosun's first choice was Julen Lopetegui, who didn't join us as the Fosun takeover was taking so long. He's had great success at Sevilla. I hope Nuno will be here forever, like Fergie at Man U, but if not, there are plenty of other fish in the sea.


7.) 12 Feb 2021 17:03:33
Explain, show more regret and definitely stay.


8.) 12 Feb 2021 17:36:22
Thefutureisoldgold, you say that the club has been mismanaged. Please explain.


9.) 12 Feb 2021 18:04:34
Stay for me. Not convinced many of the problems are his direct fault, transfer targets missed and players sold and signed that probably weren't his ideal choices, but yeah I think it may end up in a settlement agreement at some point as something or someone has disrupted the team spirit that existed pre March lockdown.


10.) 12 Feb 2021 18:22:51
These kids obviously have the skills or they wouldn't be where they are today. They probably produce all these skills in training. The difficult bit is having the confidence in Premier League games, but, that comes with time. I'd like supporters to give them more time to grow. They'll come good believe. UTW.


11.) 12 Feb 2021 18:25:51
Ok let's be honest here, Nuno isn't stupid he must know he cocked up last night, maybe he's stubborn, or even tactically naive
But I don't think us going back into the managerial merry go round is a good idea, we could get a zenga or solakken so for me he stays.


12.) 12 Feb 2021 18:39:51
Firstly can I apologise for my rants last night
I’ve supported our club through thick and thin
170 mile found trips to home games and watched my beloved team at over 70 grounds
People can call me whatever, but don’t question my commitment and support.
I was there when only a couple of thousand cared.
I thought this was a site to air your views get things off your chest, post a cheeky rumour have some banter
If Nuno stays or goes will not be the be all and end all of our club
Our club will always be our club
Of coarse Nuno will always be reveered respected and adored for what he has done for our club our city
I respect all posters and their views
Clearly I don’t agree with many, but no you have Wolves at heart🤔😀🙀
Will try to behave going forward FWAW.

14.) 12 Feb 2021 18:54:33
Jas: Nuno completely rationally wanted to improve/ increase the squad and its balance.
Whilst the first 11 was largely unaltered - pre injuries - with Semedo replacing Doherty, ( not an obvious upgrade it turned out despite the not unreasonable expectations), and Jota, (sold to finance other moves), replaced if not improved on by Neto, the squad was not improved or increased, as other than Marcal no other senior pros were signed. So 2 in 2 out.
I quite correctly as it turned out do not include the "kids" of whom only Hoever appears to have a future in the squad development.
With Moutinho obviously needing replacing and Patricio also as it turned out also needing up grading the squad and first 11 were actually weaker and (as we now shouldn't be counting Moutinho or possibly Patricio) smaller.
This was despite us spending/ wasting all of the money raised from selling Doherty, Jota, Costa and Cav etc. Whilst hugely increasing our wage bill further hamstringing the club for the foreseeable.
We also did nothing towards the balance. We bought 2 left sided defensive players Marcal and RAN, when we had Saiss, Kilman and Boly already but no senior RCB?
We did not buy a back up CF despite selling the only player even vaguely capable of playing in that role - if anyone thought Silva was the answer they should never allowed be near a football club again!
So despite a not insignificant financial investment and future commitment - long term multi million pound contract for Silva - we weakened the first 11 and squad.
Bizarrely the people who had been at the club when everything we did turned to gold left - Thelwell and Dalrymple (sp? ) as did the Doctor under whom we had virtually no injurie, perhaps coincidence but not a good sign.
This looks like mis-managmeent to me?

Guys - If nothing else this week has seen the Banter page explode!
PS Ed can we move on the tired threads on Rumours page or even blend the two pages so that posts can remain on the front page here for longer?
With the fantastic volume of posts I am seeing some posts have gone to Banter 2 or even 3 before I have read them on Banter (and I look at the page pretty regularly at the moment) .
PPS Doing a great job by the way - are any of the other clubs' sites as active and erudite as this one has become of late?

{Ed033's Note - Active yes, Liverpool, Rangers, Celtic, but as erudite, no. :)
Maybe the Eds can put more posts on the home page.


17.) 12 Feb 2021 20:30:05
As a few above have said I think anger is the feeling at the moment. I've gone past frustration and onto anger now.
I want Nuno to stay and not the Nuno who speaks with forked tongue.
I have ever growing thoughts in my head about Ian Cathro's level of influence on the coaching side.
I've no proof, no evidence but it makes me wonder why a side that played the same lX for 11 games when we were promoted, attacked teams at will and scored great team goals now can't pass to another gold shirt unless it's sideways or backwards and can't score for toffee.
SOMETHING dramatic has changed and none of us know why.
I appreciate Nuno picks the team, the tactics or is meant to but lots of managers/ head coaches trust in their right hand man.
One thing is for sure is that things need changing again drastically.
I want the 'we remain humble' days back, the laughing smiling Nuno, not the frowning sad 'we search for solutions Nuno'


18.) 12 Feb 2021 22:37:42
So Jota and Doherty were the only regular 1st teamers sold last season and we signed: Ait Nouri, Semedo, Hoever, Marcal, Vitinha and Fabio Silva. I would say we've increased out squad by 4 as we've lost 2 but signed 6. The problem is the injuries.


19.) 13 Feb 2021 10:14:27
Nuno has already admitted that Silva was to be slowly integrated into the team but injuries have dictated otherwise. Yes the injuries to Raul and Jonny have been unfortunate but to blame the change on club doctor is ridiculous especially as Jonny suffered an ACL and nobody could have prepared us for the Jimenez head injury.


20.) 13 Feb 2021 12:12:58
Agree about the injuries but dubious about some of them being accidental. Traore accidentally had his arm pulled out of the socket, several times. Jimenez accidentally assaulted etc. I played football I know all about accidentally on purpose.


21.) 13 Feb 2021 13:25:43
Jas Numerically you are correct but as I said in my answer to you I don't count RAN, Vitor, Hoever or Silva as none of them are ready to play first team football yet and I would imagine only Hoever ever will at Wolves.
Presumably Nuno agrees as Vitor rarely plays despite all the problems in mid, RAN has only played more because Marcal was injured, {Injuries have obviously been a major issue and although you can argue that isn't the clubs fault the failure to have credible contingency plans in place is} Hoever plays even less than Vitor and Silva - well I think enough has been said.
But its not just the lack of quality we signed but the fees and wages we paid out/ agreed to pay out that will hurt the club for years to come.
Fortunately Vitor and RAN can be let go this summer but Silva is with us for the next 4 years
Re the Doctor it was a throw away comment but we do now seem to have lots of smaller niggles (excluding Jimenez and otto's long term injuries) and players are out for disappointingly long periods compared to the previous two years when we had no injuries of any sort!
Of course this may just be unlucky but we do seem to be v unlucky every where now compared to previously.


22.) 13 Feb 2021 14:34:01
Thanks Future, like you I am loving seeing some of the old regulars getting involved this last week. Such a good forum for an interesting mix of views 👍.


23.) 13 Feb 2021 16:24:00
Actually Bully I think you hit it on the nail in your post above re Trench coats.
There is no conspiracy it has just been a series of v bad and easily avoidable errors by people who aren't up to the job - Nuno may well have to take some of the blame as you say but in my view the major errors aren't his fault!
I completely agree that everything, as I said in my first post on this thread, was done with our eyes open and being fully aware of what we were doing. nothing was hidden from the fans!
Further I fully expect Nuno to select the team.
I would also be astonished and disappointed if he didn't lead training
But, like at most clubs, (all? ), I strongly suspect he won't have carte blanche on transfers.
We don't know what input he has and thus how much blame attributes to him for this summer's errors but as you make clear the 2 other voices at the club - when most things went swimmingly - Podence and Neto more than compensating for Cutrone for example - both left before the summer and were replaced by people who axiomatically didn't do as well!
That isn't Nuno's fault!
Has he done as well with what he was given - after injuries and the aging process took its toll - is a matter of debate.
Maybe I give him to much credit and certainly the 5th round game was a disgrace and his constant changing of formations/ tactics and selections is also v difficult to rationalise. However it wasn't a good hand he was dealt was it. Also as always most other clubs were going forwards as we deliberately (no conspiracy and maybe the people making those decisions couldn't see what they were doing even if it was obvious to me! ), decided to go backwards?
It was an insane decision but the fans were told about it and most were happy then.
Just because it has turned out, as it was always going to, as a total disaster they are now unhappy and looking for answers It is, as you say, not some evil master mind trying to destroy the club just an inadequate management team failing to do its job properly.


 

 

28 Jan 2021 08:49:27
So it's pretty much back to the drawing board for Nuno and Jeff. The experiment to try to turn us into a more possession based, forward thinking team has well and truly failed. At least for now. After the Seville game last season, Nuno accepted that we needed to change in order to become a regular top 6 team. And quite rightly so. But from that moment on, the plan went horribly wrong. To make that change, required thorough planning. Identifying our current players that would suit or adapt to such a change and targeting the new players that we could bring in to make it happen. That's where it all went wrong. We brought in some players that were more suited to our old style and some players that were just not suited to any style at premier league level.

Who was ultimately responsible for recruitment, I'm not sure. But Nuno has to be held responsible for making changes to the team, even though he must have known we just didn't have the personnel to pull it off. The top 6 are the top 6 for a reason. You just don't get there without consistently good planning and getting the players in that you want and need. Taking players simply because they're available and maybe have some potential is not the right way forward. I guess they know that now.
So, as I said, it's back to the drawing board. Noses to the grindstone for the remainder of this season and we should live to see another day.
Let's hope lessons have been learned.

Superb post again Sharesum.
No pre season and some injuries also didn't help but again surely we should have been aware of the fact that we weren't getting a pre season and it would have been incredibly naive or even arrogant to think that injuries were not a possibility.


2.) 28 Jan 2021 10:20:49
Did we not play possession style football with a similar backbone of the team when we won the championship. We can do it again. This year of course is a write off regarding top six. We have to stop conceding goals for the time being and make sure we get 40 points. Imo we will switch styles over the remaining of the season as opposition determines. Personnel will change both on and off the pitch (I don't mean Nuno)

You're probably right. We've discussed before how stubborn Nuno can be so I wouldn't be at all surprised to see a reappearance of a back 4 in certain matches. But I think the grand plan will be shelved until next season when we will recruit accordingly.


5.) 28 Jan 2021 12:50:05
IMO we played with 9 men last night!

Dendonker as usual (so his fans say) got into wonderful positions (twice) but the end product was bad.
I'm a big fan of Traore but last night he wasn't up to his usual standard-he spent most of the first on the ground via slips (does he wear studs? ) . Does he have anything else on his mind because I thought last night he didn't WANT to play.


6.) 28 Jan 2021 18:48:18
Dendonker was a collusus. Forget about the chances. No one else was getting into those positions.

He covers every blade of grass. I'm sick of the negativity he gets. We are so much better with him than without him. He will get more goals it's just not happening for him atm.

To say he was like playing with 9 men is ridiculous. He made some exceptional tackles in our box and worked his socks off. Some fans are so short sighted!


7.) 28 Jan 2021 20:37:02
If Neto had put it in a proper decent cross instead of a poor cross behind dendonker then most likely dendonker would of scored.
I can see how frustrated it must be for nuno, but he knows its football and nuno knows what he is doing.
At the end of the day Matt it's about enjoying the match I enjoyed it.
Roll on palace.

Match day fellas.
What are we thinking?
Past few seasons under Nuno we've always managed to bounce back with a good result after a bit of a blip. Tonight's match would have been a typical 'bounce back' game for for us under normal circumstances, but are we in normal circumstances? Is this more than a blip?
Guess we'll find out soon enough. Personally I'll be hoping for a much improved display without the fear in our game of the previous two matches. That would be a good start and obviously 3 points would be even better. Fingers crossed. Enjoy guys.

1.) 27 Jan 2021 11:30:45
My opinion, this is our best chance of beating them, after lamps sacking, so hopefully we go all out for the win, just regarding Jimenez, does anyone agree, and I know we struggle without him, that he should not return till next season,
Just to make sure he's fit and well,


2.) 27 Jan 2021 11:36:20
Def take a point in a v dull 0-0 if offered right now.
But can't see us keeping a clean sheet.
They are slow at the back with T. Silva and Rudiger so Neto and Traore down the middle in a 3,5,2 formation may give us hope of something on the break.
But fear that with the new guy there the players and the ref will be under huge pressure to ensure Chelsea get off to a good start.
Would not be surprised if we add to our pens conceded total!


3.) 27 Jan 2021 11:54:16
Hi,
Tonight I'm expecting to see a greatly improved team performance and think we will draw.
Greyleg regarding Jimenez if he plays again this season all checks and health concerns will of been done.
Once that's ok I think its down to Raul himself if he feels ready due to the nature of his injury.


4.) 27 Jan 2021 11:59:43
Greyleg

I don't think Raul will play much of a part this season especially if Jose slots in ok. They'll probably give him some token minutes towards the end of season so that his comeback is done and dusted so to speak before the start of next season. Or maybe he'll come on and score the winner at Wembley in the fa cup final.


5.) 27 Jan 2021 12:20:49
Grey leg - Agreed. Number 1 priority has to be his heath physical and mental. If he rushes back either may be damaged.


6.) 27 Jan 2021 12:40:41
Jiminez won't be back this season, its not just wounds that have to heal, his confidence (and those around him) has to be reinstilled.
Re tonight, bounce back in the past was with a solid squad, at the moment were a bit disjointed in the fact we're uncertain whos playing where and in what formation. We lack up front, fabio no matter what your thoughts is not going to be a target man, he might find a knock in or loose ball but that's it. So I'm not confident until jose arrives. But, if cutrone is given the chance tonight with Chelsea in unrest we might nick it. We havnt won there for decades so let's pray we can tonight. 1-0 2-1.


7.) 27 Jan 2021 13:05:59
Hi All, Just can't see us winning tonight.

Chelsea new manager players will be out to impress the new guy, it's usually the case when when a new manager is appointed. It will be difficult.

Hopefully I am wrong just can't see where the improvement is coming from.

Can't see there being anything in the Douglas Costa thing, can you?
I did read somewhere that his wage was 100k per week (I know that can't be trusted) but if so, then that's the same as mouthino, apparently. So you never know, stranger things have happened. Seems to be linked with Adama moving to pool or city. Again, can't see that. Not yet anyway. But then if Adama pushes for a move who knows.

Good post. Lots of valid points.
Need some big performances from our more experienced players in the 2nd half of season and we'll be ok. CF obviously a must and sooner rather than later. Probably be someone we've never heard of but of the ones we have heard of, I'd say Josh King is the most realistic.

All teams go through dodgy spells and this is ours. The key issue is, how long will it last. We've been fortunate with injuries till now but we were always walking a tightrope in that regard with a small squad.

I personally think we have missed the chance to push on by wasting the last transfer window. I know a lot of people will disagree but I don't see Silva as a 35 mil player. 5 mil maybe. Ait-Nouri not any better than Vinagre.

We have got some promising players but needed more and better for this season rather than focusing too much on the future. This vital that we get experienced players in now. Centre Back, if possible, and obviously a striker.

I don't think Nuno has been happy for a while with our transfer policy so I expect him to make a point on Friday against Palace by playing a very inexperienced team.

Before the season started I feared the worst for the man city game. The Sheff Utd game therefore was a massive 3 points. I didn't like the look of us at the back end of last season (Everton match apart) or after the first 20 mins against sheffield. We are lacking in midfield. Plain and simple.
On the plus side, we do bounce back well, but I do think we're in for a tough season but who knows, a couple of good additions could change everything.

Bullys
I didn't say we would get relegated. I said we were playing relegation style football and explained my reasoning. So no point telling me we're not. We've been extremely lucky, to put it mildly, in recent games and even last night at 1.1 we were extremely lucky not to be 4 behind.

YES Man City are a brilliant team and there's no shame in losing to them but last night was one of the worst performances against them that I've seen all season from anyone. However, it may yet have a silver lining. If that doesn't stir our players into being stronger, braver and take more personal responsibility, then nothing will.

Can't really see why they would offload Kilman, unless, either he wants to go cus he's not getting enough minutes or they have identified someone to bring in which would push him further back. Or both.

Otasowie was a poor sub at that time. When you're under an onslaught like that at that stage in the match you stick with the players that are tuned in to the game. Putting someone on 'cold against a city team that are seconds ahead in their thinking and yards ahead in their movement is suicidal.

You can say that again Sydneywolf.
Hoever was terrible. Donk is just not up to it. Traore no composure when it mattered. Even Neto looked naive tonight.

That simply highlighted what most of us already know. We need at least one proper CB. At least one quality attacking midfielder and a quality striker. Absolute bare minimum requirements. We failed to do so many of the simple things tonight and if our players are fit, how much fitter are Man City players.
