    Well obviously daft as it is to publicly back those tweets, if he was fit today and not on the bench that is daft, we can't be going into games with just two centre mids in the whole 18

    He's too much of a liability to start, especially when we're in a position where we have to play an attacking front four.

    And as for 'why not loan him to Watford…' - a team that are above us. Like we're going to loan him to anyone like that.

    Bit odd that he's not in the squad though, I'll give him that. Especially when three defenders were on the bench.

    Also worth noting that this fella thought 'American Snipper' was good...

    We really missed his 10% pass completion rate and his ability to lose the ball in his own half.

    I did tell people in my report from Tuesday night he was awful and didn't seem to have the right attitude during the game considering he was captain and a senior player in the team.
    Looks like KJ thought so too.

    Harsh. He has talent but seems his attitude isn't right.

    Wasn't there something similar last season?

    Given that our next game is only 3 days away, he'll probably be in the squad.

    He tries to be Goetze and 9 times out of 10 it doesn't come off. He's not as good as he thinks he is.

    I'd agree with that, but he's better than you're giving him credit for.

    Attitude problem for me, not half as good as he thinks he is.
    If Dave Edwards is starting in a 2 man midfield ahead of him, says it all really, he has had good games but his form has nosedived big time. IMO of course.
     
  13. Form dipped after a very promising start to the season. Then again the whole team dipped for some reason. Still rate him, still think there may be more to come but he needs to get his head down and stop thinking he's arrived before he's even left. I think they call it character.

    I seem to remember a poster on here (forget who) after the Rotherham away game, getting crucified for criticising Evans....at the time many had a love in with him...hasn't taken that long to change.

    I suppose young players will have ups and downs and I expect he will return stronger,. all you can readfrom this incident is that Evans is a bit of a plonker for liking the comment. I don't think Price would have acted in the same way and he started the season, unexpectedly, out of favour.

    Evans will be a very good player if handled well. I can live with the fact that his sibling is frustrated by the lack of game time. Fair enough really.

    Let's face it. He is very lucky to be near the 1st team. This wouldn't of happened in previous years of recruitment so he should be grateful that he's in the mix!

    A few people are giving his brother some stick now, which was always going to happen. I feel for him in a way, he was sticking up for his brother. Just in a really stupid and short sighted way.
     
  18. Boys will be boys. I'm sure the sole purpose of some peoples lives is to follow people around on social media and wait for something to pounce on. Notice the ego that is Collymore is in the news again ( Something to do with Rangers and Sectarianism). Shame, because if he stuck to the football he's quite listenable.

    He was great at Fulham away early on in this season. Genuine 9/10 out 10 performance. Since then he's barely touched a 6 in most of the games I've seen. I hope he can get his head sorted. There certainly is at least the potential of a player there.

    Not really been missed, results proved that since he's been dropped.

    Following the Rotherham game, he had an excellent spell of form where he won 3 Man of the Match awards in 8 games and was rewarded with a call-up to the full Welsh squad. As you say, he was superb at Fulham and his first-half performance at home to Bolton was the best of any Wolves player all season.

    He does have talent but obviously lacks consistency, meaning that when he is bad, he is awful. Definitely worth persevering with though. Still very young and inexperienced and he'll come again.

    I can understand why he's pretty annoyed.

    Up until our teams dip in form he was up there as one of our best performers but was rightly dropped in favour of Price when he and the team dipped.

    It must be frustrating that McDonald has continued to be pretty poor and hasn't really played well all season (yesterday was an improvement) yet has been unsubable never mind undroppable whilst he's been waiting for an opportunity to get back involved.

    Favouriting your brothers tweets probably isn't the smartest idea though.

    Could be a case of him just getting too big for his boots thinking he should be in the team. KJ teaching him a lesson and reminding him who is in charge?

    Evans is 20 and still finding his way. Anyone with half a brain can see he has a lot of talent but inevitably he is inconsistent at the moment. His early season form was excellent and he outshone even McDonald at times. He needs careful handling and encouragement from supporters. Some of the negative comments here are unbelievably stupid. Don't know why he wasn't on the bench but he should be. If he and Price can continue to develop in the next couple of years our midfield will look very good as they complement each other. But we do need at least one more attacking midfielder in the mix. As for Saville he seems to be struggling at Bristol City. For the moment he looks like a poor signing by KJ.

    He has a future, and had we have failed to win yesterday, may have had a point. But seeing how we won yesterday, time to shut up, buckle down to some work and do the talking on the pitch when you get a chance, which will surely happen at some time in the run in.

    He had string decent games in L1 last year now acts like he should be playing regularly

    He moaned near start of season if I recall on being dropped

    I've seen nothing to say "yeah he should be playing"

    Steady 6.5/10 midfielder who thinks he's paul scholes trying ping cross field passes

    I like Evans think he has real potential.
    Not sure how he went out of his way Tuesday, it's his job he does as he's told.

    He needs to keep away from Twitter and keep his mouth shut before he ends up in trouble by the looks of it.

    He might not have said the words himself, but by drawing notice to them he's implicitly agreeing and therefore publicly criticising the management, something extremely unprofessional.

    Put it this way, if I did such a thing I'd imagine my boss would be having a very unpleasant conversation with me in the near future.

    He's a talented lad and still young but hasn't really impressed this season.
    I get the impression that he thinks he's a lot better than what he actually is at the moment. I'd suggest let your football do the talking rather than twitter.

    Very disappointed by this. I like Evans, he has great talent IMO he is 20 and ha a very good run in a Championship club. He needs to shut up, man up, get his head down and work hard to get his place back. The 'went out of his way' comment is an insult to the club and he needs to keep well away from that sort of rubbish.

    Evans is a decent player, a good one even on his day but he doesn't have enough days of note and Wolves need better than what he offers at present. He needs to improve and become more consistent offering much better before becoming a regular.

    As for the comments, pathetic.

    Seems he thought wrong then.

    I always thought hard work, ability, right attitude and catching the managers eye was the way to get into the 1st team. Evans may possess some of those attributes but not all at present.

    Head up mouth closed eyes open. If I were him I'd knock some serious sense into his brother. $$$$ing idiot. If I was Jackett I wouldn't include him Tuesday either. Young and talented but needs bringing down a peg or two, just like his $$$$ing mouthy gob$$$$e brother

    An average player at best. Not missed him in the slightest. And even if we weren't playing well he'd offer us no improvement whatsoever. Says everything that Price was ill, and he preferred Edwards in a 2 man midfield (albeit it worked against dire opposition). Ideally needs a season out in loan next season, nowhere near good enough at the moment
