It’s no secret that Wolves have an issue when it comes to squad depth. With the majority of their players featuring in essentially every match this season, the squad now looks as though it’s feeling the effects of what has been a fantastic return to the top flight.
Wolves fans can’t have too many complaints about the performances of their club this term but they have shared some concerns after an intriguing stat was revealed on Twitter.
Wolves have used just 19 players in the Premier League this season, fewer than any other team.
In Premier League history only Liverpool (also 19) in 1995/96 have used as few during a whole season #wwfc

After seeing the stat, supporters of the Midlands club offered some anxious thoughts, as one claimed it gave evidence for why they looked so fatigued. Another said it was no wonder the players looked shot to bits.
Other fans chose to bring up the potential of European football next season, explaining that it would detrimental if they still had a small squad.
Wolves Fan TV place the blame for Wolves’ FA Cup semi-final collapse on John Ruddy in the video below…
Nuno Santo’s men have performed way above expectation this term but have hit a stumbling block recently. They were knocked out of the FA Cup semi-finals at the hands of Watford, whilst their recent away form has been shocking, failing to win in their last five trips on the road.
Here’s the best of the reaction.
That’s why our lads are fatigued

Will need to bolster our numbers if we are serious about playing Europa Cup – 6 games in 4 weeks before the season proper starts – no thanks!

It wont work out well next season if they manage a European slot. Many a club has come undone fielding smaller squads with so many matches.

Having a small is great for continuity, however also very predictable for the opposition working us out because its the same faces, same formation, same plan week in and week out! If he wants europe, then the squad will have to be bigger to compete
