    It wouldn’t be too difficult to be a better finisher than Rashford, who really has got shit for brains when it comes to making the right choices. The more I watch him the more he just resembles a slimmer version of Emile Heskey.

    Like the look of Greenwood, two footed and seems to have a cool head for one so young. Let’s hope he can kick on now and get more minutes, and hopefully goals.
    Fuck knows who else is going to score enough goals for us to do anything decent this season if he doesn’t, simple as that.

    Yep, bereft of quality up front and in midfield. Couldn’t help noticing what a top team Wolves are again though. How could I ever have doubted people on here.

    It’s no surprise that we struggle to break teams down when our only attacking option seems to be getting the ball out wide and putting in crosses when we have no one who can head the fucking ball! Fortunately, I expect Pogba and Matic to be gone next season so that we can (hopefully) re-build the midfield with some creative players. Tuanzebe is a far better option than that Swedish donkey and should replace him immediately, Fred needs to be in midfield and we need to give Dalot and Greenwood more games from now on. That would improve the team immediately imo.

    I remember the flack I got when I had the temerity to say they were shite when we drew with them happy. Think is says more about us than about Wolves though doesn’t it. How the fuck we ever dicked Chelsea in that opening fixture when we’ve struggled against everyone since is beyond me. Another shithouse of a fixture coming up on Sunday too – anything from that will be a bonus.

    Agree about that Swedish pussy yorkshire, but don’t hold your breath mate, they’re about to give him a new bumper contract. Is there no one at the club that can stop this insanity of upping the contracts of bang average to rank bad players ffs? It’s fucking depressing.

    It’s easy for Tuanzebe to look good against a team that basically put 11 men behind the ball. Admittedly I didn’t see the game but there’s a big difference between playing Astana in the EL and West Ham away in the PL where they don’t fear us. I’m not saying Tuanzebe isn’t good enough, I actually think he will be a very good player, but you can’t make a proper call on him until he plays some PL games.

    Tuanzebe might not have had too much to do but whatever he did was with authority and confidence. For me, he’s got the 3rd choice stamp last night (Jones managed to look shit against Astana didn’t he?)

    Greenwood is weak and slow but a real talent. Again, he has some really good attributes, knows his sorroundings, composure. That goal was real class, most 17 year olds wouldn’t have kept so cool 1on1 in the box. Which brings me to..

    Chong, he’s ahead of Greenwood and Gomes physically but probably the least talented. Not saying he’s bad or anything but he has a way to go if he’s struggling to trap the ball from simple passes (Lets give him 4-5 more chances ro clear his nerves)

    Gomes for me was the winner from last night, great touches and our most technical player on the night. Got tired after an hour and started lookin rubbish bit that’s just a lack of fitness. He should 100% be on the bench in future PL games.
