Derek McInnes: "Very poor" performance

The visitors scored all of their goals in a one-sided opening half, and although City pulled one back after the break, McInnes admitted they were still second best in all departments.

"We lost the physical battles and it was a very poor performance," said the Robins boss. "It was on the back of two decent away displays and I didn't see it coming.

"We never got to grips with the Wolves front two all game and our fans are entitled to be upset.

"Being booed off is never nice, but I can understand their feelings. After we lost the first goal we capitulated and Wolves grew in confidence.

"Even though we won the second half, as I asked the lads to do at half-time, Wolves had more chances.

"The goals we gave away were awful. Wolves were stronger than us all over the park and that was a major factor."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
