Swansea City manager Brendan Rodgers said his side played as individuals, not as a team as they threw away a 4-1 lead to draw 4-4 against relegated Wolves today.
The Swans were 3-0 up after just 15 minutes thanks to an incredible start against an initially lacklustre Wolves side.
Andrea Orlandi scored the quickest Premier League of the season, before Joe Allen and Nathan Dyer increased the lead.
Wolves got one back but the home side restored their 3-goal advantage, when Danny Graham was given plenty of space to score past former goalkeeper Dorus De Vries. Jarvis then fired past Vorm to make it 4-2 at the break.
While Swansea City looked like scoring on every attack in the first 30 minutes, it was the complete opposite in the second half as it was Wolves looking the biggest threat. And they were, scoring 3 goals to complete an incredible comeback to draw 4-4.
Swansea's defensive show was absolutely awful, and by far the worst of the season. Brendan Rodgers was left disappointed after his side made a 'magnificent' start:
'For the majority of the first half we played as a team,'
'In the first half an hour our midfield was able to cut through Wolves. We scored three goals early on and looked like we could have scored a lot more.
'But we gave the opposition oxygen really and at 3-0, the game should be dead. Then in the second half I thought we played on our own and not as a team and that can sometimes happen when you're chasing the game.
'I think we've shown over the course of the season how well we can defend, so to concede four goals was incredible really and the ones we gave away were poor from our point of view.'
'Our system early on worked brilliantly for us,'
'And some of the football we played in that period was phenomenal really.
'But give credit to Wolves. I said earlier in the week that this was a team with spirit and I know some of their players. It was never going to be an easy game, and that's how it proved.'
