A case of first night nerves. The whole team was tentative and tended to play safe with too many backward passes throughout. Understandable in a way as expectations are so unrealistically high right now. Our defence was worrying and Boly, who I rate so highly, had his worst game in a Wolves shirt. Far too casual and several times got us into trouble. Patricio looked good and thank God we have a player of his calibre in goal. Take away the two moments of absolute class from Neves - the wonderful free kick and the sublime cross into the penalty area which Jimenez took so well and we looked very average playing against 10 men. Everton were nothing special at all in the first half but picked up their game in the second as often happens when you are a man down. The main thing is we didn't lose but thought our attack was very disappointing with Jota and Costa poor to say the least and Jimenez marginally better (he missed a great one one chance that he should have buried. But the truth is we created very little and often our passing around seemed pretty pointless except at least we kept the ball. Musn't be too hard as it was the first game with a lot of pressure but it was frustrating watching so many passes going just out of reach of players and as I say a safety first mentality all round. I hope in future the forward players take more chances to attack rather than always look for the backward option. Otherwise we are going to struggle. We can't depend totally on Neves to come up with a bit of class. And the defence needs to tighten up considerably. We needed that new monster CB to come in to complement Boly and it it didn't happen. But to be fair Bennett was as always very steady and reliable if unspectacular. Lots of work to do and we have the likes of Cav and Traore to come in and liven up the attack and Leander also to help in midfield/defence. At least we got a point and hopefully no one injured. But please oh please in the future can we be a bit more bold when we attack. Jota in particular has so much more to offer and today he seemed to get knocked over or miskick every time he was near the ball. That is just not him. We are with the big boys now and everyone including Nuno has to adjust. Still optimistic we can be a top 12 team but it is all going to be a lot tougher than some people believe. As for Everton they have another four or five players to come in and should be top 8 once they are integrated. But today they offered very little, were lucky with the bounce of the ball for the first goal and should have made much more of our defensive lapses. Both managers will just about be satisfied but of course playing at home you always want a win for a full house crowd desperate for a good start. As a final thought I thought the sending off was justified and Ruben you are a bloody genius. We just need another couple of you to make real inroads in this division.
