Wolves fans blast John Ruddy for his shambolic showing in the Carabao Cup

Wolverhampton Wanderers were knocked out of the Carabao Cup on Wednesday evening after defeat at the hands of their local rivals.

Nuno Santo named 11 changes to the side that drew with Newcastle United at the weekend with him primarily opting for a youthful-looking squad barring the likes of Patrick Cutrone, Ryan Bennett, and John Ruddy.

Aston Villa came out on top with a 2-1 victory thanks to goals from Anwar El Ghazi and Ahmed Elmohamady while it was the Italian striker who got on the scoresheet for the visitors.

Many supporters at Molineux firmly believe their experienced goalkeeper was at fault for both strikes as he was making just his third appearance of the season.

One fan blasted the 33-year-old saying he needs to retire and start his gardening career, which echoed the thoughts of another, who believed Ruddy had ‘no future’ at Wolves.

‘Shambolic’ and ‘lacklustre’ were just two of the other words used to describe his performance at Villa Park.

A further member of the old gold faithful even claimed that the shot-stopper had let the young members of the starting XI down with his mistakes.

Backup blues - does Nuno need a new no.2?

Certainly - Ruddy is finished

We can wait on that one

Why not promote youth?
