As debilitating as the lack of goals has been in this awful start, Wolves have still dropped 8 points from winning positions.
Leeds, Newcastle and Palace were all opportunities to get results that would have kept things respectable.
But instead, those matches went away through poor game management and individual defensive errors.
Even in the two victories that were secured we relied on a penalty save and an inexplicable miss from Che Adams to stay ahead.
The goals have got to come but things have got to tighten up all over the pitch if Wolves are to dig themselves out of this mess. Does this group have the character and leadership to rise to the challenge?
Not many people will have seen the 4-0 drubbing at Villa Park coming prior to the weekend in what was their worst performance in an otherwise good start to the campaign.
They’ve seen off Leeds, Brighton and Man Utd, all at home and were unlucky not to beat Chelsea too prior to their humbling at Villa.
Ivan Toney is still the main man and his 8 goals already have him pushing hard for a place at the World Cup. If nothing else, he should be picked for his penalty prowess alone.
The Bees have scored 18 overall but conceded 21, so they certainly give you a chance. Whether Wolves can take advantage is another question.
Although I thought they’d struggle this season, Toney and Mbemo alone are enough to keep them out of trouble if they can tighten up at the back.
I think Steve Davis needs to revert to the side that started at Palace.
We didn’t possess enough bite or athleticism to cope with Leicester and I think Semedo and Boubacar can bring those things.
I’ve seen a few people suggest dropping into a back three and bringing Toti back in. There might be some value in that if we continue being as open.
But if we can cut the supply line to their forwards and press higher up, it should also help us win the ball in better areas to start our own attacks.
