Wolves 3-0 Reading FC: Player Ratings

When the whole team is bad, we struggle to grade the players. Becki gave it a go anyway.

It was really difficult to rate the players from Tuesday’s game at Wolves. How do you score a bunch of blokes running around (Well, walking for the most part) who looked completely disinterested and managed to muster just one shot for the entire game?

I tried my best, and I apologise in advance that this isn’t the best Player Rating piece you’ll ever read, but I hope you can forgive me after the boredom and disappointment I suffered at the Molineux.

Anssi Jaakkola: 4

Made some terrible decisions which led to a couple of the goals. Time wasting within 10 minutes also didn’t bode well for the rest of the evening.

Tyler Blackett: 5

Didn’t actually do too badly. Tracked the ball well and made some good clearing headers.

Liam Moore: 4

Actually looked like he cared that we lost at the final whistle, but his frustrations were very apparent during the game.

Tiago Ilori: 4

Static defending, too casual on the ball, inaccurate clearances.

Chris Gunter: 5

Attempted to get past the half way line unlike the rest of the team.

George Evans: 4

It’s good to see Evans getting more game time, but this definitely wasn’t his finest performance.

Pelle Clement: 4

Managed to make Jota roll half way to Birmingham with first half tackle, but didn’t do much else.

Dave Edwards: 4

Non-existent in a generally very weak midfield display.

Sone Aluko: 4

Selfish and wasteful with the ball. After a good performance on Saturday, it was back to standard Aluko on Tuesday.

Mo Barrow: 5

If we had any kind of attacking threat, Barrow was probably the majority of it.

Jon Dadi Bodvarsson: 5

You can never fault his work rate, it’s just a shame none of Jon Dadi’s efforts were even close to being rewarded.


Leandro Bacuna: 4

I remember him touching the ball once and he just smashed it at a Wolves player. That kind of summed up his game.

Sam Smith - N/A
