Reality Check as Wolves Reserves Annihilate Millwall

Events in the West Midlands kind of put our result at the weekend into perspective. All those getting carried away with the "quality" of our squad should take careful note of how ordinary the Championship teams look against the Premiership's "reserves". Leeds are being thumped at home to the Man Utd also rans, Millwall are being taken apart by the stiffs of Wolves and Newcastle's reserves are drawing at Forest as I write.

If the understudies at Wolves find it so easy to wipe the floor with Millwall, why did we find it so hard to overcome them on Saturday?

Well, for one the game we played against Millwall was a derby and one of their biggest games of the season. They were always going to up their game against us. Wolves have had a largely unchanged squad whilst we have undergone wholesale changes, this means that while we have a strong squad it's going to take a while to see the best of them. I hope that answers your question.

You are THE worst blogger in the universe. There are obviously other reasons, why we didn't beat them! You are using the same sort of logic that a schoolkid uses. Just because a team beats one team there better than all teams that the beaten team has defeated. So using your logic, the season we beat Man Utd 4-0 (which also emphasises the point that anything can happen in the cup) we were better than all the teams they beat in the Champion's League in the run to the final?

I never had a doubt that it was two points lost for us last Saturday at the Den. We gave them too much respect. I am sure we could have scored at least a goal against them. I guess Sam got it wrong this time.

Notts forest also took Newcastle to 4 3. What is your point?

Is your understanding of the game really that poor or was this a joke post.

Hard to tell as this whole site is a joke.

May be they were totally knackered after managing a draw with us two days earlier?
