Most of the last Premier League season was played out in front of absolutely no fans.

The rest were watched by vastly reduced capacities. The crowds being back in much greater numbers at Euro 2020 has showed what we were missing.

The plan is that full crowds will be back in stadiums from the very first week of next season.

In light of that, Daniel Podence spoke to the club website about what it’s like playing in front of a full Molineux.

“It was very different environment to what I was used to,” said Podence of his Wolves home debut.

“Because here in England, the stadiums are very different to other countries in the world, especially the atmosphere and the crowd.


“They’re always singing and so all of the things that the people usually do here.

“Also, the flames and the fireworks in the stadium is not something I was used to, but I felt very warm and it was very nice.”

Return of fans can have a big impact

The difference in some of the games in the Premier League behind closed doors and in front of fans at the Euros has been chalk and cheese.

Fans clearly have a huge impact and Wolves will hope to feel that next season.

Bruno Lage’s revolution needs the fans to get behind it from day one and that starts when Nuno Espirito Santo’s Tottenham visit on the second week of the season.
