Sweet HEAVENS. Defending: optional. Tick.

GET IT OUT!

Hey, they can tackle. Hey, they can lump it. Wow. Maybe you should… Do that more? I'm all for possession. But maybe not when you pass it to the opposition forward a yard from goal. (Cough, Al Habsi, cough.)

1:22-1:36

You'd have thought playing left back for two seasons running would give you a little bit of defensive nous. Not for young Jordan, it seems.

This possession thing is TERRIFYING.

1:53-2:06

Wolves could have scored a bagful. We're lucky it was only 2-0.
