Where do you begin?
My first thought is we looked physically weak.
There was no muscle in the midfield and it was way too easy for West Ham to break through.
At Sheff Utd we were much more robust with Dendoncker and Marcal in the side.
Neves – for all his great qualities – and particularly Vinagre, don’t give us that presence.
I don’t mind losing some beef if we’re gaining elsewhere but we didn’t even look any sharper going forward.
Without Podence, our attacks were limited to Neto and Traore running incredibly fast with their heads down towards the corner flag.
West Ham coped with ease if we’re honest.
Those two occasionally opened doors but on the rare occasion the ball was put in the box Raul was surrounded by four or five claret shirts.
I’m up for having more possession and imposing our game on the opposition but I’m just not sure we’ve got the players to do it?
Every time we come up against a team prepared to drop off and defend in numbers, we routinely fail.
More worryingly, when West Ham got forward, we had no answer for Antonio or Bowen.
Every ball forward looked like it had the potential to cause us pain. It could easily have been five or six.
Rui Patricio was the only player to emerge with credit in what is probably the worst performance of the Nuno era.
Maybe Semedo too if you’re feeling generous, albeit in a defensive performance from the team we’d all rather forget.
Nuno said afterwards we have to find the solutions from within the squad and not the transfer market. Despite this bleak outing, I still think that’s possible.
There were games early on last season when we had to swallow some defeats while he found the right balance in the side, and he’s got to do the same again here.
For me that means bringing the Donk back into midfield, at least in the short term, even if that means reverting to the conventional 352 and losign some attacking impetus.
And Vinagre was that bad at times tonight he may even consider playing Semedo down the left if Marcal isn’t fit and bringing Hoever in down the right.
Whoever plays though, the defending just has to be better.
The hallmark of a Wolves performance in recent years has been playing their way in and waiting for a moment.
Tonight we never gave ourselves a chance to see what West Ham were made of because we surrendered our own moments.
It’s still just a blip at this stage, but a worrying one nonetheless.
