    Blackburn 1 - Wolves 1 Verdict thread

    Meh

    A draw against Blackburn isn't that good a result

    Wrong starting team - Tex & Cavaleiro should have been on from the start & we need to keep the opposition well away from our back line
    This year we will mainly be conquering Europe

    Probably just about deserved a point there which is not exactly inspiring stuff given the level of opposition. Another dire goal given away, still not much in the way of coherent tactics or cohesiveness, no attempt to dominate possession, we kept going which is always the bare minimum and squeaked an equaliser. Hell of a lot of work to be done all over the park.

    Not a great game at all. But at least we have come back home with something.

    There's times when we look like we've got the making of a half decent side going forward but whoever comes in needs to sort the defence out, things could turn pragmatic for a while if we do appoint any of the 'favourites'.

    Seems obvious we need to set up 4231 to me. Cav left, Costa right, Tex as a number 10 and giving Bod some support. Saiss and Coady screening.

    Not pretty viewing. I'm off down the pub to try and wipe it from my memory.

    Missed the game as i was working, but got home, saw the team selection and thought, fuck me, Rob Edwards is another twat.

    Bitterly dissapointed, again.

    Tex and Cav transformed us and should be playing a lot more rather than Wallace, Edwards and most of the other Jacketeers. The sooner we start replacing all the mediocrity the better

    CBJ looks like he wants to be a central player. Not just in defending but in possession too. Good player on the ball, but not a good defender. I'd rather have Doherty or Silvio at LB from now on.

    It was poor all across the back line though. Not just for the goal either, but throughout the game. Batth was miles away from Gallagher for their goal though. Awful defending.

    All over the place today. Doherty has gone back to stopping absolutely fuck all, Batth is taking no responsibility and is making errors all the time, Hause has 1 good game in 4 and CBJ still gets a lot of the basics wrong at this stage.

    And yep, Doherty should have been flagged offside IMO. Off when the shot came in.

    Think a 4-3-3 with Tex/Saiss/Prince as mids and Cav/Bod/Costa as forwards could also work.

    We need someone who can recognise that though. It already feels like this season is nothing more than a write-off and right now the board has a month or so to start looking into defenders we can bring in to replace...whatever we would call the back four, i don't think they can be trusted

    Well we might have got a point but it was shit. For me it backs up the fact that the coaching at the club is shite and needs serious work. There are so many times where players are in the wrong positions, making blatantly wrong or very naive decisions. Rob Edwards is apparently held in high regard at Wolves, i generally would be interested to find out who that is by.

    Tried to back Wallace up in the week but Lycan seems to be right, he was really poor and the less said about Batth's defending the better. Saiss was pretty poor tonight but Coady and Edwards do not have a single bit of footballing ability between them (yes i'm exaggerating) It's so frustrating watching 2 footballers who have such bad technique and can't play a simple pass or are massively out of position. Well done Dave for the goal but that doesn't mask the fact that he's still not very good.

    Agree with anyone that thinks we should go 4231, it seems the way to go with the players we have and let Cav, Teix and Costa do their thing behind Bod or Dicko. Doherty has to be allowed to go forward because he is a threat and he can't defend.

    Hard to categorise that for me. Dysfunctional best describes it I think.
    A mixture of poor quality championship and lightweight continentals.
    Batth has been crap every game I've seen. Never championship quality, would struggle in The Conference.
    Doherty? OK a poor right back but at least he has a go going forward.
    BJ here for the ride.
    Hause needs an experienced man with him.
    In short our defence is shocking.
    Personally I thought Cody and Edwards did OK in centre midfield.
    Saiss has been poor whenever ive seen him.
    Costa flatters to deceive, might look good but end product amounts to virtually nothing. Bodvarssen piss poor. We've already seen the best of him.
    Teix contributed very little of any worth.
    MOM for me Dangerous Dave. Scored the goal and came closest to scoring twice. On top of doing his work in midfield, closing down and jockeying etc. Championship quality midfielder that's all.

    Probably time for Dicko to get a start against Derby and give Bod a place on the pine.

    Saiss, Coady & Edwards is not a forward looking trio though (& I am aware that the latter scored the equaliser & he needed that as had not significantly contributed anything else) - with Wallace a passenger (& why was he brought in from the cold after 2 months out) it left only Bod & Costa in their half.

    You are not going to win games (even against Blackburn) playing that formation

    Tex & Cavaleiro should have been on from the start - the Blackburn defence were not playing in their normal positions, but we gave them an easy game with no real pressure early on which might well have produced dividends

    The defence need to pretty much all Fuck off.

    I'd go Silvio - Iorfa - Stearman - CBJ next game. I'd drop CBJ too if I could think of anyone else to play.

    Will give some thoughts on the game later. This is what I want to see next week.

    Lonergan (if Ikeme not fit)

    Silvio
    Batth (due to lack of options)
    Stearman (DB always seemed to play better with him)
    CBJ

    Saiss
    Edwards

    Costa
    Teixiera
    Cavaleiro

    Dicko

    When I think back to some of the players that we had in the mid to late nineties, that couldn't get us promoted. They would have walked into this team and we would have walked this league, and entertained as well BTW.

    Missed the game as I was working.

    What? Did we not destroy everything in front of us now that the guy picking the team is from Madeley instead of Milan?
    This year, to save me from tears
    I'll give it to Hélder Costa

    Stearman almost certainly is not the the long term solution at CH but he is undoubtedly a far better player than either Batth or Hause. Hause may improve but I doubt Batth will so I’d put Hause alongside Stearman until we can bring at least one, and preferably two, CHs in January. A leader who can organise the fullbacks and their partner would make a huge difference.

    First thing first, my apologies. I defended Jed Wallace before the game, but even allowing for 2 months out he looks like a good League One player and that's it.
    Finishing from Edwards and Coady was very poor, the goal aside. three or four completely mishit shots.
    Quite liked CBJ in second half - though there was some decent link up play going forward.
    Obviously Batth should have been sent off. He's Rotherham standard isn't he? Fairly certain Hause would improve alongside someone else.

    I was thinking about recruitment: £2m for Coady £3m for Mason (what's happened to him?) £1m for Gladon. Whoever sanctioned those deals should get him P45 on Monday.
    There's a comment already that we may have seen the best of Bod - suspect that is right.
    And clearly Cav - Tex - Costa need to start.

    Saddest thing is that we were playing Blackburn, who probably won't go down but are no bloody good.
