3 of Wolves' most disappointing moments in 2021

2021 was a rocky one for Wolves.

The club rather limped to the finish line at the end of the 2020/21 season, which culminated in Nuno Espirito Santo leaving the club by mutual consent.

There have certainly been some amazing moments.

But what about the lowest points of 2021?

#3 Wolves thrashed 4-0 by Burnley

One of the worst moments for Wolves supporters last term came back in April when Burnley rocked up at Molineux.

Optimism was high coming into the game as Wolves had recorded 1-0 wins over Fulham and Sheffield United.

Few could expect such an awful performance would lie in store.

Wolves were simply all over the place at the back, with Chris Wood helping himself to a hat-trick. Willy Boly was suffering from the after-effects of Covid-19, meaning he was particularly off the pace.

The result deflated fans and knocked the stuffing out of the team, with just one more win coming before the end of the season.

#2 Pedro Neto gets injured

Pedro Neto was Wolves’ shining light last season.

The winger really stepped up in the absence of Raul Jimenez, but the youngster suffered a broken patella back in April.

The star was forced off in the game against Fulham, and his injury cost him the likely chance to play at Euro 2020 with Portugal.

Neto still isn’t back fit yet. Bruno Lage is hoping to have him back by mid-January.

Given Wolves’ struggles in the final third this season, his return will be most welcome.

#1 Losing 3-2 to West Brom

There are few worse feelings in football than losing to a rival.

That’s what happened way back in January of this year when Wolves took on West Bromwich Albion at Molineux.

Had Molineux been able to host supporters that day, there would have been boos and they would have been deafening.

Wolves actually led 2-1 in the game after Fabio Silva and Willy Boly had scored to cancel out Matheus Pereira’s penalty.

Semi Ajayi equalised, before more poor defending led to another Pereira penalty.

A fair few Wolves fans became ‘Nuno out’ that day, and there were even reports that the result was significant in Nuno leaving at the end of the season.
