Key storylines & star players
Nine games into the season, Wolves are averaging a goal scored once every three games. Bruno Lage’s side is no longer Bruno Lage’s side, with many thanks to the Premier League’s worst scoring record (four goals fewer than anyone else). Since gaining promotion to the Premier League, Wolves have never approached an attacking juggernaut, but their goals output has fallen off significantly in recent season, going from 47 up to 51, down to 36 and 38. With summer signing Sasa Kalajdzic lost to a torn ACL on his debut and Raul Jimenez (groin – out until after the World Cup) playing just 211 minutes in three PL appearances this season, it’s little wonder Wolves are already five goals behind their expected goals total for the season.
For Forest, (un)familiarity has bred poor, incohesive performances after 22 new players arrived in the summer. Steve Cooper signed a new contract to remain as head coach (with added security), despite the poor start, as owner Evangelos Marinakis opted in favor of familiarity and continuity rather than tossing aside the man who won Forest promotion after a handful of games in the PL. Cooper remaining in charge will undoubtedly result in an improved Nottingham Forest side in due time, but will it then be too late?
