If you tell me we don't need help in the heart of the defense then your watching a different match.Hojbjerg needs to give up the captaincy and start concentrating on the rest of his game such as passing to our players not there's.
Should of put this game away earlier but the old mistakes came back to haunt us, we have had a great run hopefully this is a one of blip.Coys.

A great battling and competitive performance in the first half, with some well taken goals and some decent, calm, non-panic passing.
2nd half we were just so complacent and thought we had already won it. Time and time again, we let Wolves into the game with stupid errors and ultimately gave them the momentum to go on and win it.
The team is too flat, one dimensional and predictable. By simply putting Traore up top with Jiminez, Wolves created panic. Cedric and Bert had done well to stop him, but as soon as he had to be picked up by Bed and Stephens, he had freedom, or we put 2 on him and left Jiminez unmarked. (Just like West Ham and Antonio !!)
Don't know why Stephens dived in and I though it was prob a pen.
For the last goal, we tried a silly flick on the edge of their box, lost possession, 2 passes later they had broke away, crossed and scored !! Then it was hoof it to the unimpacting subs - but we did create 1 chance in 6 minutes of injury time - but Hour blazed high and wifr
The ref was a Prem Virgin though - 1st Prem game today and it showed. Doherty should have got a yellow for handball, Long got pushed all day, they gained at least 10 yards every throw on, but reprimanded Bert and their keeper must have had 5 or 6 warning about time wasting but no card.
Perhaps VAR should have backed the ref for the pen, as he gave a corner ? VAR backed the ref with Alderweirald's hand ball after all !!
Still we didn't deserve anything and I hope it is back to business away from home on Tuesday. It had better be, as that was all PEH was saying on Solent on the way back. Good that we have a chance so soon to show what we can do and make amends. Let's see then!!

Process could also have been subbed - particularly as he was on a yellow.
The problem was that none of the subs had any sort of impact on the game. We just hoofed it up top and hoped. Djenepo ran about a bit, pulled people back and decided to go on the same wing as Boufal. Boufal himself slipped over a bit and missed a great chance to nick a point at the end.

Unfortunately having now seen it again it was definitely a penalty. The other 2 goals were poorly defended. Players being left unmarked or no challenge put in.
So fault lies at both ends after a really good first half.
The Wolves fans put us to shame with the amount of noise they were making. 2 nil and we cocked it up indeed.
Why Jiminez was allowed to lie on the floor for 3 minutes escapes me.
Bad day at the office after recent weeks. Hopefully the jitters won't set in.
