I’ve lost count of the number of pundits/experts/journalists etc that have referred to us as “embarrassing” this season.

Slightly concerned about next season. Jeff & co are going to have to invest heavily over the summer and properly get behind Nuno. Then Nuno needs a clear plan of where we go on the pitch from there. But we’re already hearing the “we need to sell before we can buy”, line being put out.

Can’t even be arsed to comment on today’s match, because it was THAT bad.

I switched off after 0-2 which I never normally do, but I thought "fuck that" for a change.

Just seen it finished 0-4 so I doubt I missed much.

Terrible performance, but par for the norm on occasions this season.

People expecting serious investment will be seriously disappointed.

Expecting/what’s required are two totally different things.

Turgid, dross, inept, shocking and all those words. No idea how they could play that bad as a whole side. RAN maybe the only player who showed any fight. Everyone else was exceptionally bad against a side that had scored 13 goals away in the whole season.

Not sure Nuno has much blame for players who literally walked around the pitch like a training session today. Molineux would have been toxic today, and the team would have deserved every bit of it.
We really would be in trouble if we hadn't "amassed" 41 points so far. Not surprised the pundits laid into us.

Play like that next season and we'll be doing a Sheffield Utd in short order. Better we just move on from this one.

Rui - at fault for two of the goals. Wood should not score the first so easily and the corner was in his zone.
Semedo - possibly a bit flat-footed for the second but otherwise not too bad.
RAN - our MOTM by a long way but the bar was lowest ever.
Coady, Saiss, Boly - Collectively achieved the near impossible and made Wood look like prime Ibrahimovic
Neves - barely noticed him.
Dendoncker - summed up by his pathetic attempt to tackle and lost a ball to Brownhill in a manner that a 10 year old would have been disappointed by.
Jose - no service but in moments he was involved did nothing
Pod - rubbish.
Traore - dreadful. Gave ball away time after time and his crossing was pitiful. When a winger has had a key role in more goals against than they have for it is time to move him on.

Subs. Not fair to judge anyone coming on to play alongside the above players today.

To concede first in 21 out of 23 games is unforgivable and there are no signs things will change. Nuno is running out of the goodwill banked in his first three seasons. Injuries have certainly not helped but we still have enough to give Burnley a game. He has the perfect opportunity against Albion to prove he can motivate a team and start banking a bit more credit, much more of the same and he'll be leaving, but not for Spurs...

Burnley obviously wanted it more than us, perhaps understandably so, but it's disappointing we weren't prepared to counter this.

It was a shit show, but games like this have happened this season, so I wouldn't necessarily overreact to it.

To me it confirms that if our regulars are 'on the beach' or just mentally shot (the latter seems more likely) then we need to mix it up a little and play a couple more players who should have something to prove.

Not particularly looking forward to the Albion game now...

Yeah I am with Jinky, serious investment maybe not, but there needs to begin to be an element of squad turnaround or turnover. We are trapped in transition currently, we need to have learned the lessons of small squads etc, and be smarter about not saddling ourselves with a bench of inexperience that don't seem trusted, 3-0
