Fair enough. Both of my sons have - independently of me - condemned Moutinho’s performance yesterday. The one in HK saw the match on TV there & Facetimed today - he & the UK son are unaware of my posts on here. He stated without prompting from me that Moutinho is now not good enough at this level - maybe worth 20 minutes at the end of a game. I must admit to being surprised at the high depth of support for Moutinho on this forum. I hope you are all right & I am wrong about him.
Even a sensible response receives hilarious emojis! I despair.

Twitter wolves "fans" in meltdown. I've never seen so many idiots calling for Nuno to replaced. Some are even suggesting Eddie Howe and Steve Bruce! :ROFLMAO: :ROFLMAO:
Needs to be an age limit on getting an account. It's shocking.
I agree. But fact remains he has been sacked before?

Not to derail such a fascinating thread on our last game (!) but social media has allowed all sorts of misinformation (anti vax, q anon, 5G causing COVID etc etc) to spread really easily, as well as enabling anonymous abuse across continents.

And on the plus side, err - we can find out the wolves team a few seconds quicker?

I just don’t think the positives outweigh the negatives

especially Twitter - it’s a cesspool.
And this site is not? I do not get this level of abuse on Twitter? They are even having a go at my name now! Never had that on Twitter.

Just that he is in danger as he is failing to deliver. At Watford or Chelsea he would be a goner. I would keep the faith for now. But he needs to evolve.
At Watford he's be a goner just because the owners are mental

What is he failing to deliver though?

We're about where we were at this stage of each of the last two seasons, and I think anyone expecting us to seriously push into the top four at this stage is kidding themselves.
Kind of agree with this. The success of the previous 2 seasons is being used as a stick rather than being celebrated for the success that they were.

We're going into Nunos experimental stage before he comes out with the really good shit

I remember being fairly certain we were going to be relegated our first season in the Prem.

Mind, I also remember predicting we would miss out on the play-offs in the promotion season :)

It'd arguably be worse if we'd stuck with the exact same thing, we'd stagnated a bit (there were signs of this towards the end of last season, though there may have been other factors) and he refused to change anything.

I applaud him taking peak value for Doherty and having the guts to change that. Because whatever I thought about him (especially pre-2017), he gave a decent output. Long term that was the right move though.

Jota was always going to go as soon as they bid (and he was always going to know too).

It isn't perfect but there are enough good signs. I think we've played well in parts of all the games since Raul got injured, bar Burnley which was awful, I'll grant you.

This season is transitional (& compounded by injuries that we (& the individual players)didn't want) - whether we have gone into to this too quickly given the quick turnaround from the last season is another question.

I loved Jota but he was a bit unpredictable. Interesting that Liverpool saw his promise which until his injury was very evident.

Ive wondered if Jota got tapped up by Liverpool before he actually left

I’m very much in the get to 40 points as soon as possible, and forget this season ever happened camp. Anything else is a bonus.

Doc did by Spurs (or his agent did anyway). Which I don't care about, that's been happening for a long long time.

We are not in a position to get a massive bid from Liverpool for a player who lest we forget, couldn't even get in our team towards the end of last season, and tell him he can't go. Just won't happen.

Maybe one day but not now.
