Wolves slipped to another defeat in the Premier League, this time at the hands of West Ham United.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s side produced an absolutely awful display at the London Stadium, losing 4-0 to a team that had lost their opening couple of games and had David Moyes absent.
This was supposed to be a bouncing back affair.
The second half performance against Manchester City on Monday was good and plenty of positives could be taken.
But Wolves produced a horror show in the capital, hardly threatening Lukasz Fabianski in the West Ham goal.
Jarrod Bowen hit two, Tomas Soucek added a second half header which may or may not go down as a Raul Jimenez own goal, and substitute Sebastien Haller added an embarrasing fourth in injury time.
It was a tepid performance, perhaps the worst since Nuno has been at the helm, and the defending on all the goals was highly concerning.
There was no urgency at any point from the visitors, and the manager has some serious work to do with the players on the training pitch next week with Fulham to come next in the Premier League.
Perhaps the only outfield player for Wolves who could hold his head high was Pedro Neto.
The young winger perhaps looked the most likely for Wolves and seemed one of very few actually keen to make things happen.
His performance was appreciated by some fans on social media:
Neto the only one remotely interested #WWFC

This is appalling. Slow build up, no movement up top, centre midfielders horrifically too deep and constantly sidewards passing. There’s zero penetration. The whole team other than Neto are jogging. JOGGING #wwfc

Neto is the only player who’s looked hungry tonight

Only Rui and Neto come out of this game with any credit. Back 3 were awful, made Antonio look like Pele. Should be Dendoncker and one other in the middle from now on #wwfc

Neto about the only outfield player who can say they’ve gave it a go
