The fact that Westwood and Hutton were slightly better than Jedinak and Richards tells me that we have a mountain to climb.

Dr T should be able to sue RDM et al, for allowing our squad to be so unfit. Wolves weren't good, they were just fit.

The fact that Villa couldn't play properly in the second half due to being on their knees is scandalous!

The problem is, I think that a few of our expensive signings are over the hill and incapable of playing at the pace and tempo that we need them to play at.

Sorry Tony but it looks like we'll be picking your pockets again in January.

I can't help but think the fitness issue is as much in the head as it is in their bodies.

I saw fit athletes in wolves shirts and unfit posers in claret and blue (apart from Kodjia). They didn't have one player less fit than ours.

I still think that a lack of confidence can make legs more leaden than they should be and slow players down. Still, Bruce has made the same point and criticised the players fitness.

Fitness is a real puzzle because we bought in another seven players recently. We know that the players ran BMH last season and some bad lazy habits formed, but that should have changed with the new influx.

If you check out Max Marchesi, he's not a typical football fitness coach. That might have been okay for RDM but I expect him to be replaced asap by Steve Bruce.

I would say that the players struggling most are the new signings, funnily enough.

Just a thought on yesterday. Was it just me who thought that a number of our players go down far too easily? It got embarrassing at times.
