    Struggled to see it myself too. Got schooled tonight by our midfield 3.
    I honestly think Wet Spams fans were shell shocked as to how they were so utterly, comprehensively outplayed.

    Have to say though his pace is deceptive...he is even slower than I thought he was.

    Was garbage tonight,

    But criminal if you judge him off one game (but I haven’t seen enough of him over season to really pass judgment)

    He’s young enough to improve.

    Mark Noble on the other hand...

    I thought Is was going to be a ‘we’re going to sign him’ thread. Obviously not.

    I’ve seen him a few times in highlights etc but first time for the full match. Looks bang average.

    Agree based on tonight, just I’m sure some games neves say has been bang average but we all know how great he is...

    Not say rice is, haven’t seen him enough

    Just don’t like the whole judge of how play us way

    He was in a midfield 2 against a midfield 3.

    Exactly like what happened for us against Cardiff, Huddersfield etc ... add in his partner was Noble and he is a defensivesly minded player he was never going to pull up an trees. Was on a hiding to nothing really as Snodgrass looked like he was playing in the hole but gave no support to their midfield whatsoever.

    :tearsofjoy: Always makes me laugh when I hear that. By that logic then, we are European champions seeing as we have Patricio, Moutinho, Neves, Jota, Costa, Cavaleiro and Vinagre.

    He's only Irish when he's ****.
    The media love in with him after he scored was ridiculous

    He’s West Ham’s Jack Price. Keeps them ticking but hardy does anything of note all game. He definitely helped them turn their season around by shielding their **** poor defense, but he got dominated by our midfield today.

    Huddersfield fans may have said the same about Neves when they came to Molineux?

    We were outstanding in midfield tonight. No need to bash a youngster for the sake of it.

    I agree absolutely no need to be petty, we should be talking about our amazing performance instead

    Neves has had poor games this season, they’re young players, it happens. Don’t really get why people take pleasure in jumping all over young players when they’ve not had a blinder.

    He's actually a talent but with zero support he literally can't do the job against our midfield, with a plodder like Snodgrass and Noble who runs like he's got stuck in treacle, the poor kid stood no chance. I actually think he would be fantastic foil in our midfield and would work well.

    Plus, it's one game, If we look at the Shrewsbury game then the same critism could be landed at both MGW and Giles doorstep. Young players are inconsistent.

    The great debate, Irish grandfather, gone through their setup since being poached but had his head turned by England.

    Hard to judge him in that. Good athlete and seems to read the game well. But need to see more for me to be that fussed if he picks England or not

    Huddersfield fans probably said nothing after the game at Molineux, just sat in silence, stunned that they’d actually won a match.

    Hard to judge on 1 game, my main observation was he was very slow which is a worrying attribute if he’s to live up to the hype.

    I’ve posted similar on Twitter, their fans have been banging on for weeks that he is better than Neves.

    Neves, Moutinho and Dendoncker aren’t quick to be fair.

    The commentator on tv reckoned Southgate was there to check him out.

    Tbh he was playing in a very poor side last night, so probably hard to judge.
    Factor in his age/consisty and he could become a very good player.
    Similar to Mgw, the media will hi light the good and allow patience when poor(the way it should be).
