    thought I was alright with football speak, but this has me baffled.

    Wolves head coach Nuno Espirito Santo said:


    "Teams are trying to adapt their shape to our idea. That was not the case of Barnsley. Paul knows what he's doing. There are a lot of teams adapting but that makes you grow.

    He means other teams are changing their shape to match them

    I think it was his way of complimenting Hecky , saying he set up to play his way & not the way of others

    Probably surprised that we set-up as per usual and didn’t change just to stop them playing.

    Exactly what I think he meant. It's very complimentary of the job Hecky is doing.

    I'd take that as a big complement to our excellent coach.
