NICK PARKES DISCUSSES 6 THINGS WE LEARNT FROM WOLVES V FULHAM
1. Semedo can channel his inner Ronaldinho
The ever improving Semedo under the new regime found him produce a sequence of exquisite skill in the 12th minute. He seems to be growing in confidence going forward which could be crucial in the relegation scrap. Any silky Brazilian would have been proud with the trickery that Semedo produced leaving Fulham players in his wake.
2.Hugo’s crosses are Bueno
Hugo continues to go from strength to strength with another excellent and MOTM performance. His ability to produce immaculate crosses is impressive (if only we had a decent noggin in the box to take advantage).
3. Cunha’s agent is a magician
Not necessarily something new from the Fulham game but more of a strengthening in opinion; how the figure of 40 million of the English pounds was put on the table for this man never ceases to amaze me. Lacklustre and severely impotent going forward. Never seems to be in the right place at any half-decent time. Loses the ball easily and struggles to hold up play. Definitely not a number 9 and after last night’s performance I find it difficult to see how he is any other number.
4. Nunes’s lack of reading skills
There is no doubting that with the ball on the floor Nunes has ample ability (albeit not showcased enough) and we know he wasn’t bought for his defensive expertise but his inability to judge where a high ball will land is staggering. Numerous times he jumped in vein as he watched it glide over his head.
5. Broken attacking record
Just another comically frustrating night in the final third, (yes, nothing new there) but it is mind-boggling how a team with talent can be so void of any common sense or clinical initiative going forward. Again we got ourselves into so many promising positions but have zero-clue what to do with it.
6. Fulham fans are generally not nice people
In a world where any form of hate-crime is being stamped out in football (and rightly so), it does perplex me how people (Fulham fans) can think it’s perfectly acceptable to sing “let him die” to players who are clearly injured. Wolves didn’t resort to Bournemouth’s time-wasting tactics and specifically in Cuhna’s case, who potentially has a serious injury, being booed upon leaving the pitch on a stretcher is a disgrace and the Fulham faithful should learn a little bit of decorum.
