Frustrating result. Didn't deserve to lose but didn't deserve to win either. Powderpuff up front and poor goals to concede. Set-pieces are becoming an issue.

We played ok, but we’re always likely to struggle in the last half hour or so, the bench was so weak.

I thought MGW played well, nice movement and passing, looking forward to him getting a run of games.

Semedo looked excellent offensively, but had a hard time against digne defensively.

I thought Neves was excellent.

I like Fab, and he was okay first half, but should have come off after about 15 minutes of the second half, he looked knackered and offered nothing.

Donk should have scored at least one of the five chances he had, it’s just not good enough.

disappointed, but not really surprised. Hope we have a player or two back for West Brom.

Disappointing. We had a lot of players out but so did Everton. Only positive is Hoever looks quality - so composed and Neto clearly isn't badly injured so should be ok for Saturday.

Rubbish. Draw might have been fair on balance of play but the problem is we don't have enough goals and we are liable to concede soft as shite goals so teams always have a chance against us.

1 win in 8. Really poor stuff.

We just cannot continue playing Fabio, it’s not fair to him and it’s not fair to us. I really do hope he will come good, but he offers nothing - less than zero at times as his passing is woeful and stunts attacks. Pull him out for his own sake.

Any of Boly, Johnny, Podence, Jimenez, Traore could have made a big difference and we're missing the lot. These results can be hard to take but can't be surprising, really.

You thought that was a 'soft as shite goal' ? If we'd have scored it would have been a tremendous cross and header 🤷‍♂️

Another shithouse team turn up at Molineux and another shithouse team take all 3 points. Teams must love playing against us at the moment.

We are a side that score very few and we concede sloppy goals every game we play. That is not a good combination.

We’ve played more games than every side around us - there are some below us that have 2/3 games in hand on us. I know suggestions of being dragged in to a relegation scrap have been mocked on here - but the reality is, unless we start finding some sort of form and stability in our play - we’re only going one way. For the benefit of those that need it, I don’t think we’ll go down - but we will be looking down rather than up unless we can find a “solution”, as Nuno would say.

I don’t want to criticise Fabio Silva because he’s an 18 year old lad who’s been put in a difficult situation. But it’s also the opportunity of a lifetime for him and so far, he has looked a million miles away from a Premier League footballer. At the moment, playing him and completely flogging him in to the ground is doing more damage than good. Nuno is untouchable on here - but he must have been the only bloke in the country who thought keeping Fabio on for 75 minutes was a good idea. Get him out of the starting 11 - play Cutrone or maybe our anonymous mate Jeff needs to change his mind on the transfer policy and go and sign someone else who can actually score a goal in this league?

I don’t mean to annoy anyone by saying this, but I don’t want to hear the usual excuses. Yes, we have injuries, but around about 55-60 minutes in to tonight’s game, the match was absolutely there to be won and once again, we end up losing and taking nothing.

God help us if we lose to Albion at the weekend.

I do wonder how much better and how many more goals we'd score with Raul in the side.

Anyway, I much prefer the way we're playing on the front foot and at a higher tempo.

We need to get some of our players back to give us realistic options off the bench. Nuno needs to protect 18 year olds when they're clearly knackered though.

The lad needs to put on 5kg of muscle on, bless him. He's got skills you can't teach but he is a streak of piss, physically.

Draw would've been fair, and honestly thought we were the better team. More and better chances than Everton. Problem's poor finishing of those chances, and a bench with nothing to offer but more kids.

Not happy with that, may have played some neat and tidy stuff at times but it got worse as it went on and we've not created a single opportunity in the second half.

Obviously we're in a really shit situation injury wise, but there's still enough there to do better than that and conceding goals in the manner we have tonight is just not good enough. The first one is so easy it is laughable.

Fabio has shown bits and pieces but was absolutely miles off it today. MGW was decent but clearly tired quickly which is fair enough.

Not really sure where we're going to be honest, but first and foremost we need to ensure that we're not dragged into a real dogfight.

7/10. Not going to pretend we played shit just cos we lost. We were the better team but lacked quality up front and Everton had a very defensive lineup. Couldn't do much about the winner. No idea why Silva played left wing though.

Really struggling to get any momentum going. As said one win in eight is terrible run of form and we need some results (regardless of performance) to get us on track.

i think Nuno probably did what he could with players available in terms of the starting eleven, but the Hoever sub was a poor one. He’s a good footballer, but he’s never a winger in essentially a front three. Shabani could have replaced MGW, as could Vitinha or Cutrone. Or just put Corbeanu on the right as that system would have suited him.

Regardless of Cutrone being back, we need another attacking option. Doesn’t have to be a striker. The small squad stuff biting us is nonsense in general but the one area we do lack depth in is wide forwards due to the change in system.

worried about Neto ahead of Saturday. That could be a problem I feel in the next couple of days. Not good

I'm not liking three of your posts in one thread, can you pack in being reasonable please ?

If someone offered me a button that would enable me to fast forward to the summer I would press it, right now.
