Four at the back with Mustafi and Kolasinac moving to the bench. Our strongest double pivot and wing attackers who will be required to add to the midfield too. Mesut sat in behind Laca. Sounds a promising line up from Senor Emery.
We had three times the amount of possession and passes of Wolves but they scored the three goals.
We had a couple of decent chances before Papa scored a close range header from a corner. The 4th goal from 4 efforts on target in the whole game.
More garbage. Palace gave us a clue what to expect.
I blame Venga for instilling a culture of possession for its own sake. (This is meant to be irony)
Heaven knows how we can turn this around for the Europa semi?
Maybe beat Leicester on Sunday?
Can’t be arsed – 5 for everyone including subs and manager?
OK, maybe too generous – all 4s or all 3s?
What do you think?
Maybe a 1 for the manager who has singularly failed to improve both the defence and our away form from last season.
p.s. an extra point or two for Nketiah who at least looked like he had some spark when he came on for the last twenty.
Stuart Attwell – can’t even blame that knobhead for this one.
