Wolves 0 West Brom 3
If euphoria could win football games today would have seen Wolves through to the fifth round of the FA Cup, sadly that`s not the case and 23,000 Wolves had to sit and endure an awful game of football and an awful Wolves performance. We should really have learned our lesson`s from the Poorthorns debacle but sadly nothing changed in fact the performance Wolves dished out today was worse then last time out.
Today was a harsh lesson in the gulf of class between the two teams, Albion were pretty, effective, strong and clinical were as Wolves were tame, lacklustre and so unproductive it was embarrassing. From the opening exchanges you could only see one winner and that was Albion, out near and hated neighbours sounded two warning shots before taking full charge, firstly Kamara shot wide when put clean through and then Jason Koumas slid the ball the wrong side of the post after once again stripping Mark Little.
After all the missed chances you may have thought luck was on Wolves side…..not in the slightest, from a Wolves attack the ball again was misplaced and cleared to the halfway line where Kevin Phillips was lurking, he flicked it past the last man on the halfway line to Kamara who strode clear leaving Mark Little in his wake rounded Matt Murray before popping it into an empty net.
Wolves in that first half had been taught a lesson in football and sadly there was more to come in the next 45 minutes, not a lot of positives can come out of that half for Wolves not least we never had one shot on goal which has been the story of the season so far…….players like Rohan Ricketts, Michael McIndoe, Craig Davies and a few others have a lot to answer for, their performances were truly awful and leave a lot to be desired none more so then Ricketts and Davies who`s Molineux futures look very bleak indeed.
I could go on and on about the 2nd half if I was commenting on the Albion`s performance, but I`m Wolves and sadly the half was as bad if not worse then the first half, Albion were just too good and that is painful to say. Wolves fans were still taking their seats when the tie was put firmly out of Wolves reaches, again Wolves defence allowed Kevin Phillips so much time to bring the ball under control assess the situation and fire home for their 2nd goal.
The game was ebbing away from Wolves and not even the half time introductions of Mark Davies, Stephen Ward and Jemal Johnson could brighten up the mood. It took until the 70th minute for Wolves to register their first shots on goal both from Jemal Johnson, but both efforts were weak and never troubled Zuberwhatshisname. Albion wrapped the tie up from a Jason Koumas corner, he floated a lovely ball into the back stick which found Zoltan Gera and his downward header was as easy as you like…Game Over finally and the exodus started.
In a nutshell the players we had on show today were boys against men and that folks is painful but reality, Albion were superior to what we had on show which begs the question for fans do we really want a Playoff place this season. The only saving grace after a humbling is the fact we are yet to see Andy Keogh in a Wolves shirt, and another one is the fact Michael Kightly`s stop start Wolves career is over and we can see him perform in every game now, today was a killer but Wolves fans have to look for the future unlike certain Wolves players on show.
