I don’t want a single one of those players starting a game for us.

In the first season of the PL Nuno has about 13 players he actually wanted to use. We have less than that now
As an ideal first 11 no, but Coady, Boly and Gomes are all reasonable backup centre halves. Cundle an option in CM if needed. Bueno has a future, to be seen at what level, ironically our U23 wing backs actually suit the position. Hwang we've done to death

I don’t want any of those 3 starting a game still, but accept that’s as good as we’re getting for now and the least of our concerns. Coady struggled in his 10 minute cameo last night but he’s going to be ahead of the other two on reputation when I don’t think he should be as LCB.

I don’t want Cundle starting a game either and nor Bueno even if he looks the most promising.

The sun is right in that goalmouth tbf but that free kicks got to be saved. Wonder how serious the knock Sarkic is carrying is.

It was a pretty terrible half really. Illustrates how desperate we are for signings as there's not many of these you'd want playing in league games.

Flicked between this and the women’s but wasn’t paying attention to Wolves and nothing seemed to be happening. Bottom half second tier Portuguese side? What standard is that? League 1?

I haven't seen any of the game, but is it significant that Hwang is playing today rather than yesterday? In terms of lage's thinking?

As depth goes we are pretty bereft. Hwang is not a good footballer. Against this team he should stick out, but he's not even as good as Campbell!

I doubt it. He's only just come back from injury.

Depends I guess on these 3 things

1) we actually sign him a striker early next week
2) He wants to play 4-2-3-1 which makes Hwang the only option
3) 4-4-3-0 because Hwang is the only option so better playing no one as a central forward.

The Cundle/Ronan/Hodge midfield has looked pretty lightweight. Griffiths on now for the 2nd half.
Has ronan looked like he’s progressed at all as a think I saw a few saying they’d be happy with him being an option off the bench etc?

I think Cundle and Ronan are alright as backup. They'd keep things ticking over if brought on towards the end of games

Decent pen by Hwang. Was he saying to the ref someone made racist gestures towards him?

That was a waste of time. Nothing we didn't already know.

Back 3 didn't work
Hwang is shit
Kids aren't ready yet
Boly and Coady would a bombscare as a pair in a 4.
