Alan Shearer expresses surprise about Wolves' predicament

Alan Shearer expressed his surprise that Wolves’ didn’t have someone to go to replace Bruno Lage last night on Match of the Day 2.

He spoke after Wanderers crashed to a shocking 4-0 defeat to Leicester City at Molineux.

Youri Tielemans, Harvey Barnes, James Maddison and Jamie Vardy were on target for the visitors during a clinical display from Brendan Rodgers’ side.

It was another abject performance from Wolves, and fans started to turn in the second-half, especially after Maddison got Leicester’s third.

Boos were ringing around the ground, and Scott Sellars also came in for criticism from many.

It is a very worrying situation at the moment.

It’s difficult to see how Wolves can pull away from danger at the moment, and a relegation battle seems inevitable.

Ashley Williams said last night on MOTD 2: “There is games to be played, I’m not sure what the message is to the players in this situation.

“You don’t have people like (Conor) Coady in the dressing room any more who would pull everyone together and batten down until they can put a manager in. It’s a little bit messy and I feel for them.

When asked if he was surprised Wolves didn’t have someone ready to go to replace Lage, Shearer then added: “It’s the same problem with Wolves, the lack of goals. Where are the goals going to come from. Yes, I am absolutely [surprised]. That is what should happen and normally happen anyway.”

After blanking again yesterday, Wolves have now scored just five goals in 12 Premier League games so far.

Diego Costa was arguably Wolves biggest threat against the Foxes. But the veteran once again failed to find the back of the net.

It’s more than a little bit messy, as Shearer and Williams give verdicts on Wolves

To say the situation at Wolves is a little bit messy right now is a major understatement.

There are many issues at the moment, and now the feeling around the place is starting to turn toxic.

But this will happen when those in high power make a string of poor decisions.

The biggest has been to not name a new head coach until 2023 and leave Steve Davis in charge for the time being.

It’s just one win and three defeats under him since he took over from Bruno Lage, and Wolves are in danger of getting cut adrift.
