Wolves: Fans fume as Under-21 team go out of Papa John’s Trophy -Wolves News

Lots of Wolves fans have been left fuming as some news emerged involving their Under-21 team.

As shared by the official Twitter page of the Wolves Academy, the Under-21 side lost 3-0 away at Crewe Alexandra in the Papa John’s Trophy, meaning that they have now exited out of the competition.

Where will Wolves finish in the Premier League?

The result left them in third place in their group, having picked up two losses in total and one draw, only managing to score one goal whilst conceding six in their three games (Sky Sports).

Only the biggest Wolves fan will know who these players came from! First up, Jonny Otto...

Considering that other Premier League side’s Under-21 teams have flourished in the group stages, such as West Ham United, Aston Villa and Chelsea (Sky Sports), the frustrations of the Molineux faithful are understandable, and questions may now have to be asked of coach James Collins as a result.

Finishing their Papa John’s Trophy campaign winless and bowing out with a lacklustre 3-0 defeat certainly won’t shed much favourable light on the Wolves academy boss with supporters already voicing their displeasure on social media.

“Unfortunately until we become a top 6 side we’ll never be able to attract the top youngsters. Many of this side will have careers in the game but, it’ll be in the lower leagues not the Premier or Championship levels.”

“It’s not just tonight’s result and performance, for some time the U23s have lacked any identity of purpose. Questions need to asked about the quality of coaching, especially as we are supposed to have signed some promising talent. #CollinsOut”

“Complete rubbish, a disgrace. No tackling, go slow all game. Ruddy must have had the ball more than any of the other players because of the stupid back passing, truly a gutless performance. Collins needs to wise up this is not anywhere near good enough”
