Adama Traore
If IF we stay up - And Boro dont come up - Should we be going all in, balls deep, tits out for this freakishly fast fruitcake?

The Troyster is in. PACE.

Absolute nonsense. Post up the clip that shows that.

Before the goal I was thinking we were lucky that they were shit up front.

Re: Adama Traore
When he came on the the commentator even said, this guy got legs for days, he will cause problems.

Ive seen him before, good runner.

And he bloody scored.
Wolves are not shit, they are more stable than us and after the draw with man city, i thought this is a draw at best

Re: Adama Traore
I do partially blame Cresswell, he gave up when Traore went past him when he should have sprinted back to at least put pressure on him or block him or bring him down.

Re: Adama Traore
You don't *need* a speed demon to run through the centre of our midfield sadly.

Do like Traore though. Engine.

Yarmolenko..? Won quite a few of his aerial duels when he came on.

Re: Adama Traore
If Wolves had retreated back into their own half then maybe you play it forward and advance on them.
But when they left players up that makes a ball into their box even more the right option in minute 92 of 94.

As soon as we conceded what did we do?
Launch balls into their box , presumably thinking that was (one minute later) the best scoring option. Go figure

I suppose the other question is who would you aim a punt upfield at? Given that Antonio had gone off by then. There was nobody remotely capable of winning an aerial ball in the opponent's half by that time.

Re: Adama Traore
There was nothing wrong with playing it out. The problem was Sanchez getting caught dwelling on it rather than laying off an easy ball. Bad error at a bad time that was punished, but I'm happier seeing us play it out rather than hoof it.

Re: Adama Traore
Criticism of Traore before was that he had pace and skill but absolutely no end product.

Oddly enough he improved that under Pulis last season in the Championship and now has his first ever PL goal.

Think he will turn out to be a good signing for Wolves, especially if he is now starting to develop an end product.

There's a time and a place. I'd rather play 'old fashioned' for a few minutes to win a point rather than try and be 'progressive' and gift a goal to the opposition. It's just common sense. Just like Antonio's fucking stupidity against Palace last season.

Sometimes the best thing to do is play the percentage game. Almost ANY team in the world would have put it long there, in a tight game. Add this to the fact that the previous 92 minutes of play clearly indicated we DO NOT have the players to attempt a cute intricate passing and ball retention style of play.

Takashi Miike 11:25 Mon Sep 3
Re: Adama Traore
he's a quicker version of Antonio, im not convinced

Re: Adama Traore
Aside from he's pace, he's bang average.

>>> Of course even a Sunday league team would have pushed up and got their keeper to launch the ball into the box. Basic football which was beyond our rabble

I don't disagree this might be a safer approach. But it's also very old-fashioned in football terms imo. There are many teams that I respect who would attempt to do exactly what we were doing there rather than reverting to the old-school punt.

Hermit Road 11:14 Mon Sep 3
Re: Adama Traore
Bit harsh on Cresswell. Turning and running from a standing start requires a lot more than 5 yards up against a speedster like that. There’s no need to rip everyone to shreds for their goal. The midfielder made a terrible error, after that, everything else was inevitable.

The opposition manager can take some credit though for his decision to hold back a very quick player for the last third of the game when our lack of fitness showed most. Expect a lot of other teams to do the same.

Re: Adama Traore
I don't think I have ever been so an angry at an individual player as Sanchez on Saturday. What he done was unforgiveable.
Absolute prick for pissing about as he did.

Sven Roeder 7:59 Mon Sep 3
Re: Adama Traore
The MOTD analysis showed that when the ball was won back Traore was 6 yds behind Cresswell. About 5 secs later he was 5 yds ahead of him after a limp attempt to clip him as he went past.

Of course even a Sunday league team would have pushed up and got their keeper to launch the ball into the box. Basic football which was beyond our rabble

'Is it true he gave Cresswell a 10 yard headstart for the goal?'

No. He was caught out of position by Sanchez's amazingly unpredictable schoolboy blunder and failed to get to one of the league's quickest players.

Attempts to place the blame on him and Fabianski are risible.

God knows where Masuaku would have been. In the centre-circle probably.

Re: Adama Traore
Cresswell couldn't even take one for the team properly!!

Hermit Road 11:33 Sun Sep 2
Re: Adama Traore
He was a massive handful. He’ll trouble a lot of teams coming on for the last half hour when they’re tiring. Excellent signing for them.

irisiris95 6:03 Sun Sep 2
Re: Adama Traore
Thought he would have been perfect for us as we have no pace in our squad. His speed past Cresswell just summed up how awful the latter has become.
I was truly shocked by how sh*t Cresswell was today. Much like Antonio, once he got in the England squad something happened & it just got worse.
