Morgan Gibbs-White was among the scorers for Wolves in last night’s 4-0 Europa League qualifying victory against FC Pyunik at Molineux, grabbing the home team’s second goal of the night.
It was the 19-year-old’s first competitive goal for Wolves’ senior team and Tim Spiers, Wolves correspondent for the Express & Star, rushed to the defence of the player in the wake of some criticism.
Seen so many snide comments about Gibbs-White recently, no idea why. Hopefully that shuts everyone up – the kid (stress the word kid) is a ridiculously talented player. There's a reason Nuno hasn't sent him out on loan – he sees a star there. That'll be the first of many goals.

Last night was his second start of the Europa League qualifying campaign, having also been in the line-up that began the 2-0 home win against Crusaders in late July.
However, these Wolves supporters agreed with Spiers’ assertion that the midfielder has been unjustly criticised and will get better as his fledgling career develops:
Absolutely. Brilliant talent for a young guy

I don’t understand why people would be making comments about him he’s class
— Mark Spruce (@mark_spruce) August 15, 2019
Well said Tim.

He should be treated like royalty, hope he gets a standing ovation, he should also be given a free pass if he doesn't perform every week
