Hart was fucked by having a left post
Twelve games in and not only have Wolves made their best ever start to a Premier League season
Wolves goalkeeper Jose Sa's role has been about much more than saving shots, explains head coach Bruno LageJose Sa does not boast Rui Patricio’s reputation but the new Wolves goalkeeper has been crucial to their strong start. With exclusive insight from Bruno Lage, we look at the statistics that show how important that he has been to Wolves’ style change…www.skysports.com
Haha, me too, it's why I haven't ever mentioned we haven't conceded from a set piece yet this season.......oh buggerA good place to say that his performances have proved my considerable concerns to be wrong. His kicking really has brought an extra dimension to our play and he’s pulled off some great stops (albeit some from opportunities he has been instrumental in creating). I’ve held off positing this not out of any reluctance to say I was wrong, more because of the incredible power I alone* possess to inspire a calamitous mistake the following minute or match from noting how well someone is playing.
*along with every other football fan.
Surely all keepers have incidents which go against the general grain. Sa was rooted to his line from a corner (cross?) forcing Neves to clear for a corner that led to the first Brentford goal (I think....), but in general he does, evidently, look to get off his line and command the box.Rui is badged as a really good shot stopper but we've all seen him let in some very average shots
I don't agree with the 4 goals being his fault, but that would be a goal every 3 games, which would be very bad- can't see how there could possibly be more good.For me he was culpable for 2 of those, the Utd and Palace ones.
The pen against Spurs is more a minor mistake imo, others equally at fault and it was a borderline decision.
The Newcastle one, well yes he stayed down and maybe a bit of play acting which none of us like but the ref didn't know that...poor officiating imo.
Even so, even if he is at fault for all those 4, he's been more good than bad so far over the season for me.
