As Wolverhampton Wanderers returned to action following the September international break last weekend, our Premier League clash against Chelsea was always going to be tricky.
With an early start to the year and far more first team disruption than we have been used to under head coach Nuno Espirito Santo so far, fans will be well aware we were basically hammered 5-2 and our search for a top flight win in 2019/20 continues.
On the powderkeg that is social media, some fans have clearly got too far ahead of themselves given our achievements and growth in recent years and they seem to have forgotten we are a work in progress, not only dealing with a potential second season syndrome, but also a Europa League campaign that has sidetracked the league form of sides more established in the top flight.
Everyone knows it was a poor performance, but if we throw the baby out with the bathwater and end up back at square one, how exactly does that help us? We’ve had wobbles before under Nuno and he’s sorted it – we are also still bedding in new players and trying to keep players fresh with games coming thicker and faster.
Patience is a virtue.
Traore’s message is spot on.
