    The least effective substitutions ever

    Well, those two subs today were a real waste of time. Instead of being positive for the team, both were big negatives. Bissouma did pretty much nothing when he came on and Knockaert was truly awful.

      I genuinely despair for you. Great 3 points. Murray’s 100th goal. Ridiculous Matt Ryan save at the end.

      And you can’t wait to start a thread on this shite.

      Not a great deal you can do in 10 minutes, Bissouma made a couple of decent tackles, Knockaert make a brilliant challenge and was criminally booked for it (joke), and he got in some space for a decent chance, albeit wasted in the end. As far as I'm concerned I don't expect anyone to come on and shape the game in the space of 10 minutes, those subs wasted some valuable minutes and I think Jose was likely knackered by that point too so it made sense to bring on fresh legs in that position.

      Well, you'd be the expert on negatives.

      Thank you Captain Hindsight

      Think Jose is still being managed carefully with typical Albion caution on his return so understandable he was removed, although Ali looked absolutely shagged as well (was lying flat out on the pitch for an age after the final whistle) and March was also fading.

      Probably best to stop feeding him.

      Whilst I appreciate the need to not be negative, I totally agree with the principle of what's being said. The subs were strange and handed the initiative back to Wolves at a crucial time of the game. How our weakest attacker Jahanbakhsh stayed on the pitch is beyond me - he looked absolutely shagged by the end and clearly needed to come off after about 60 minutes.

      We need to congratulate CH for his bold substitutions, to bring on Bissouma as early as the 71st minute when not being for an injured player is most unlike CH as it usually has to be at least the 75th minute. This tactical change certainly helped the team across the line.

      What did the three Wolves subs achieve?
