Wolves fans react to back-four Lage's reportedly been testing in training

Bruno Lage has used a back five – or back three, depending which way you look at it – in every competitive Wolves game he’s taken charge of so far.

That has been a continuation of Nuno Espirito Santo’s plan, and of course Lage faces his predecessor tonight when Wolves take on Tottenham.

Ahead of that game, the Birmingham Mail report that Lage has been working on a back four, though.

They claim after Saturday’s 2-0 loss to Brentford, a back-four of Ki-Jana Hoever, Willy Boly, Yerson Mosquera and Rayan Ait-Nouri did some shape work with coach Carlos Cachada.

Of course, Lage could well deploy a back five again tonight as Wolves seek to avenge last month’s loss to Spurs.

But some Wolves fans on Twitter have had their say on the potential switch, and it’s fair to say they’re excited.

A consistent spell with a back four would represent a clean break with the Nuno era, and shake things up after one win in five league games.

It might well just be an experiment for tonight’s game, but here’s how the report went down with some Wolves supporters on Twitter anyway:
