Molineux nightmare, no positives,
Wolves v. Leicester 1-0


DATE: 29.07.2017 - THE CUNNING FOX - NEWSDESK

 

City players out there at the Molineux grass got 90 minutes of what ? This was a very frustrating display by City and with Slimani injured early on, that was also another worry

You could go on, as Gerry Taggart did, talking about City being a bit behind Wolves fitness wise, since they start the season next week, but believe me a Premier League team, trying to field their best 11, should do more than this.

Again what is this team without Riyad Mahrez, nothing. Mahrez was the only one trying to do something and make a difference, but it became difficult for him as well. A lot of questions to be asked. Who are taking the free kicks, anyone who fancies a shot.

Christian Fuchs, Danny Drinkwater and Riyad Mahrez all wanted to take them, but it looks unclear who should. Fuchs went on to take one in the first half, Mahrez one in the 2nd half, none of them resulted in anything.

Shakespeare fielded more or less the starting line-up from last season, and he stuck to his plan to give players 90 minutes of football. Results are not anything to bother about in pre-season, but to be almost outplayed by a Championship side is something to bother about.

Heavy legs might be a reason for the poor performance, few or no work on match related matters, as much of the pre-season so far is more or less about individual fitness than a team playing well at this moment.

City never managed to find out how to play against a Wolves team that could be doing well in the Championship under new coach Nuno. The former Valencia and Porto manager certainly made it difficult for Shakespeare and his players.

The team selection was one that we all thought would bring out the best in the City team, but the performance was below a level of a Premier League team, and at this moment few answers were given.

So hopefully Shaky is not getting "shaky" at this moment. Getting in a few more bodies and send someone out. Get this pre-season campaign back on track against Burton and Gladbach, and forget this awful performance.

Shakespeare wanted something from the game, but his change to a 3-4-3 never worked out and it almost backlashed with two great oppertunities for Wolves in the end of the game.

The Tottenham game comes to mind, 1-6. That is a level of performance that we never again will like to see from a City team. Wolves could easilly had two or three, and that is not acceptable even with heavy, heavy legs.
