Ward Prowse appalling at defending and was directly responsible for a goal. Hodge Bodge was even worse and was also directly responsible for a goal and recorded the world's highest number of back passes. Absolute s**t.

Disappointing but var has been good to us re palarse etc. A slip of concentration against a good team. Bar injuries complacency is the biggest potential problem with the existing lads. We'll be fine and a couple of strategic non panic reinforcements would be healthy. Together as one .

In the first half we saw the new Saints unfortunately the old Saints showed up in the second half.
If you tell me we don't need help in the heart of the defense then your watching a different match.Hojbjerg needs to give up the captaincy and start concentrating on the rest of his game such as passing to our players not there's.
Should of put this game away earlier but the old mistakes came back to haunt us, we have had a great run hopefully this is a one of blip.Coys.

Game of 2 halves. For all that was good in the first half, it was a complete reversal in the 2nd.

A great battling and competitive performance in the first half, with some well taken goals and some decent, calm, non-panic passing.

2nd half we were just so complacent and thought we had already won it. Time and time again, we let Wolves into the game with stupid errors and ultimately gave them the momentum to go on and win it.

The team is too flat, one dimensional and predictable. By simply putting Traore up top with Jiminez, Wolves created panic. Cedric and Bert had done well to stop him, but as soon as he had to be picked up by Bed and Stephens, he had freedom, or we put 2 on him and left Jiminez unmarked. (Just like West Ham and Antonio !!)

Don't know why Stephens dived in and I though it was prob a pen.

For the last goal, we tried a silly flick on the edge of their box, lost possession, 2 passes later they had broke away, crossed and scored !! Then it was hoof it to the unimpacting subs - but we did create 1 chance in 6 minutes of injury time - but Hour blazed high and wifr

The ref was a Prem Virgin though - 1st Prem game today and it showed. Doherty should have got a yellow for handball, Long got pushed all day, they gained at least 10 yards every throw on, but reprimanded Bert and their keeper must have had 5 or 6 warning about time wasting but no card.
Perhaps VAR should have backed the ref for the pen, as he gave a corner ? VAR backed the ref with Alderweirald's hand ball after all !!

Still we didn't deserve anything and I hope it is back to business away from home on Tuesday. It had better be, as that was all PEH was saying on Solent on the way back. Good that we have a chance so soon to show what we can do and make amends. Let's see then!!

Hasenhuttl Admits There Is No Need To Panic Buy Now are you sure. Stephens gave away another penalty he was back to his old ways today. Why does Prowse never get taken off when he in not playing well? Armstrong has played well in the last few games but still gets taken off. Make no mistake we need new players in Defence this month.

TimSaint added 21:41 - Jan 18

Sandy - Armstrong was taken off because he was so ineffective in the 2nd half. He wasn't involved as much and much of the play bypassed him.
Process could also have been subbed - particularly as he was on a yellow.
The problem was that none of the subs had any sort of impact on the game. We just hoofed it up top and hoped. Djenepo ran about a bit, pulled people back and decided to go on the same wing as Boufal. Boufal himself slipped over a bit and missed a great chance to nick a point at the end.

We had 2 chances early in the second half to make it 3 - 0 but didn’t take them, think it was Ings and long. Still playing well up to that point, unfortunately we didn’t and would have killed the game off. The rest they say is history, on to the next one.

SaintPaulVW added 09:52 - Jan 19

Agree we had 5 really good chances in the second half. Couldn't finish.

Unfortunately having now seen it again it was definitely a penalty. The other 2 goals were poorly defended. Players being left unmarked or no challenge put in.

So fault lies at both ends after a really good first half.

The Wolves fans put us to shame with the amount of noise they were making. 2 nil and we cocked it up indeed.

Why Jiminez was allowed to lie on the floor for 3 minutes escapes me.

Bad day at the office after recent weeks. Hopefully the jitters won't set in.
