In the second half, Chelsea were comfortable and in control. Olympiacos isn’t going to be easy at all, they knocked out Arsenal and we went 1-0 down to the Greek side when they had 10 men so there’s still a lot to do before that Sevilla/Roma game. The work-load has been daunting and will continue all the way to Germany we hope, but never has anybody uttered a word of complaint.
Also how Jota stayed on for 84 minutes was beyond me, he was nowhere near good enough and he hadn’t done anything to warrant a start. To have exceeded both of these is remarkable with the size of our squad. Seventh then. There’s no denying it; this tepid show at Stamford Bridge was a dismal anti-climax but it doesn’t in any way cloud the fact that this has been another outstanding season for Wolves.
It was the turning point of this game. Well, we can’t really fault the players here. Willian is another who is not involved because of injury.
Two minutes defined the game and although the first goal was poor officiating, the second goal was calamitous, totally avoidable and completely reinforces the point that we need to strengthen defensively.
We started on the front foot and did really well until stoppage time at the end of the first half. It was surprising Jota started ahead of Podence, and even more surprising the switch was not made at half time. Ron Harris, Ray Wilkins and Clive Walker were playing the last time Wolves won at Stamford Bridge in March 1979, a … The season continues on 6 August and we have more than a passing interest in the FA Cup Final. Instead, the Europa tournament has been embraced as an adornment and not used as a convenient get out clause.
We could not work the ball into any dangerous positions. Then we can go into the Europa League with very little pressure on us as we’re not expected to win it, if we play our game and as well as we have all seen, for example Spurs away, City home/away then we have every chance of going far. There was no ‘second season syndrome’ at all; the rest of the League knew exactly how Wolves would operate but finding a way to combat our style of play was quite another matter. Most players were a 6/10 and we needed to be 8/10 to have a chance of winning. Bring on Olympiacos. That this scenario was even contemplated suggests that Wolves have become an increasingly influential outfit in Premier League football. Moments later, we were two behind with a calamitous goal for Giroud given too much room in our box. In the top flight, the last was Tommy Langley (15) in 1978/79.The last homegrown before Tammy Abraham to score 17 goals in a top-flight season in all competitions was Peter Osgood who also scored 17 in 1972/73.Olivier Giroud has scored seven goals in his nine Premier League starts in 2020. We will wait and see whilst we ponder the little bit of naivety that cost us against Chelsea.
However, money dictates so much at the top of the table and we still have some way to be able to compete with that.

A killer blow.
It's been a great season on the whole but the conclusion of it leaves a bit of a disappointing taste in my mouth. A frustrating way to end the season, more-so in terms of how we played than the result. Let's just hope we can give what is left of the Europa League a real good go. Diego Costa was the previous youngest (26 years, 95 days) followed by Eden Hazard (26 years, 108 days).
Abraham is the first homegrown to score 15 league goals in a season since Clive Walker, who managed 16 in 1981/82 in Division Two. Mount scored with a great free kick that by all accounts was given for dangerous play despite the offending foot being measured at almost 16 inches below that of Chris Wood when Burnley were disgracefully awarded a 93rd minute penalty against us a few weeks ago. We were simply not at the races and it was a walk in the park for Chelsea. The Blues must put in … Jota should’ve been pulled at half-time and although he's been poor since the restart, this was his worst performance in a Wolves shirt for a while. We’ve had a very good season overall but it could have been a great season. Frank Lampard's Chelsea side take on Wolves in the final game of the Premier League season on Sunday afternoon at Stamford Bridge. This was based on the higher number of games, with many ‘experts’ predicting we would “do a Burnley”. Our Europa League hopes lie in Chelsea’s hands now so let’s hope they can win the FA Cup final because at least we’ll have more European football next season. Chelsea are unbeaten in all six of their Premier League home games against Wolves (W5 D1), last losing against them in the top flight at Stamford Bridge in March 1979 (1-2). He was causing some problems when part of the front three and that’s where he’s most dangerous. Putting Adama at right wing back was questionable too, I’d have rather Jota come off, have Podence, Adama and Raul as the front three but keep Doherty on. The second goal was absolutely shocking from us, we switched off after their goal, they sliced us open like a hot knife through butter and then somehow Coady can’t clear the ball and Giroud ends up in front of him.
Then the dark arts, perfected by the Big 6, came into play. The chance still exists through the Europa tournament, but the question for Wolves during this truncated close season is not just how our level of progress and improvement is sustained but how it is bettered. © 2020 Chelsea FC. Each player has appreciated to the letter just what his responsibilities entail for the benefit of the team as a whole.
For us to get to the next level of say top 6/top 4, we do need some more quality in certain areas. Our fans share their thoughts on Wolves' final-day defeat at Chelsea. I think if we are to push on then we will need to bring in 2/3 key additions this summer if we have ambitions of qualifying for Champions League football.
The 3-4-3 shape deployed in our two most recent fixtures looks set to continue, mirroring Wolves’ formation. Frank Lampard believes VAR was too hasty in judging Harry Maguire’s headlock of Cesar Azpilicueta to be legal in our goalless draw at Man United, with our boss left wondering why the referee was not able to make the final decision. Moutinho and Podence should have started instead of Dendoncker and Jota. I think the way we started the restart and fizzled out is what makes it so frustrating as this could've been a magical season. The experienced keeper has featured in our two FA Cup games since the restart, with this his first league action since the draw at Bournemouth in late February.
Chelsea are aiming to win six consecutive home Premier League games for the first time since October-December 2017 when we achieved seven in a row when Antonio Conte was in charge.Frank Lampard’s side have yet to lose at home in the Premier League when we’ve taken the lead (10 wins, three draws).Twenty-six of Chelsea's 67 league goals this season have been scored by players aged 22 or younger, compared to three last season and none in 2017/18.In scoring his 15th league goal of the season against Liverpool, Tammy Abraham has become Chelsea’s youngest player to score that number in the Premier League era (22 years, 294 days). He and his staff once more should look back with immense pride on another job meticulously well done. Chelsea (3-4-3): Caballero; Azpilicueta (c), Zouma, Rudiger; James, Jorginho, Kovacic, Alonso; Mount, Giroud, Pulisic, Subs: Kepa, Tomori, Christensen, Emerson, Barkley, Loftus-Cheek, Pedro, Hudson-Odoi, Abraham, Wolves (3-4-2-1): Rui Patricio; Dendoncker, Coady (c), Boly; Doherty, Neves, Saiss, Jonny; Neto, Jota; Jimenez, Subs: Ruddy, Jordao, Vinagre, Kilman, Buur, Gibbs-White, Moutinho, Traore, Podence. VAR has obviously played some part but we’re not the only side that’s had decisions go against us so no one can solely blame that on us not finishing 6th. Elsewhere, Christian Pulisic is deemed fit enough to start, but there is no place in the squad for N’Golo Kante. Nuno got a few things wrong as well. Wolves … Giroud has now become equal-third top French scorer in the Premier League with 85 goals (with Louis Saha) and behind Nicolas Anelka (125) and Thierry Henry (175).
Similarly, his players have done him proud; they have been magnificent.
Wolves have again excelled operating with a small but completely trusted squad.
The experienced keeper has featured in our two FA Cup games since the restart, with this his first league action since the draw at Bournemouth in late February. To beat Chelsea away was always going to be a big ask and we’d have had to have seriously been on our game but for me, Chelsea didn’t have to do too much to beat us, it was comfy for them in the end. After just five wins at Stamford Bridge in their opening 13 Premier League games this season, Chelsea have ended the season with six successive home victories. Five minutes later, Coady was poor, and we were down and out.
Foundation staying connected with older generation of Blues fans
Neves and Dendoncker looked comfortable in the first half (and both probably vie for MOTM) but the momentum we usually find in the second half was killed off by the score. This was one more cruel blow in a season that’s been full of them.
To be disappointed with seventh (and no Europe) does show just how much progress we have made and the signs are there to suggest further progress can be made. N’Golo Kante was content with the point we earned at Old Trafford yesterday, recognising it was an even contest between two well-matched sides.

Neither side looked very special for forty minutes. We could still make it a great season by winning the Europa League but that is going to be extremely difficult. For a brief period after the end of lockdown, we were outside candidates for Champions League qualification. We looked comfortable at the back with neither team creating good chances. Despite that, we never looked like causing Chelsea any problems and looked like we had nothing to play for when it was quite the opposite. All rights reserved. Over 38 games, you deserve to finish where you do and no one can argue that. I’d say another CB is crucial because to get to that next level, along with another central midfielder, a backup striker providing Jimenez stays and a decent cover for right wing back because against Chelsea when 2-0 down, Adama playing there hindered him so much.
I still believe.
The first goal was a brilliant strike from Mount but it should never have been a free-kick. Whenever Nuno chases the game and gambles with our line up, we lose our shape and organisation and generally offer less. Let’s hope they are as comfortable in the FA Cup Final too. Nuno threw the dice, on 58 minutes, with 3 more changes adding to that of Traore who came on at half time. Although a little disappointed, I believe this has been an exceptionally good season. I never thought as a Wolves fan I'd feel disappointed at finishing seventh in the Premier League and still being included in a European competition, but here I am.
I would have kept him on the right and asked Neves & Moutinho to get the ball to him at every opportunity. Adama Traore is on the bench. Jota had a shocker and so did Jimenez.
