Nani remains a player able to influence the game as he pleases and gave us the lead after 3 minutes. I thought he had taken too long to get his shot off as he slowed play down in the box but he simply shifted the ball onto his other foot and fired home. That would be the highlight of the half though as Wolves dragged themselves back into the game through 2 set pieces.
Whilst we looked somewhat improved in the second half we were still off the pace and a whilst Wolves didn’t look like they were going to extend their lead we too didn’t look like we were going to get a goal back and the final whistle brought to an end a dreary game.
The ref was poor and O’Hara could have seen red before he was subbed whilst Zubar would have been unlucky to have conceded a penalty as united chased an equaliser but that isn’t an excuse for the equally bad showing from us.
Gutted to have lost the record to Wolves with such a poor showing, would have preferred to have gone out with a bang rather than a whimper but the number of misplaced passes and poor play in general made this an inevitability. The warning signs had been there and unfortunately we didn’t heed them.
The curse of the Manager of the month strikes again eh?
