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."

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
