Wolverhampton Wanderers were beaten 1-0 again yesterday.
Tottenham Hotspur took all three points at Molineux on what was a satisfying return to the Black Country for Nuno Espirito Santo.
It was remarkable that Wolves did not take anything from the game having dominated in terms of possession and chances created.
But there are many positive signs right now, and with the right additions in the transfer window, it won’t be long until Wolves build some momentum.
A quick glance at social media shows many people have already taken to Bruno Lage despite the first two results.
The 45-year-old is clearly a very intense character who cares deeply about his work.
Journalist Tim Spiers was present at yesterday’s match, and had a close eye on the new manager as he prowled the Molineux touchline in front of a full house for the first time.
He said in The Athletic today: “Lage may be even more animated than Nuno on the touchline. At times against Spurs, he kicked and headed an imaginary ball.
“At one point, he literally ran down the touchline trying to show Ruben Neves and Joao Moutinho what to do as the Portuguese pair treaded water during yet another Wolves attack.”
Unfortunately, Lage’s passion could not inspire Wolves to score this time around.
But there is a growing feeling that this is a man who can get the club going again after the struggles of last term.
Lage intensity will hopefully soon yield results
The players have responded really well to the managerial change so far.
It is a shame about the two results, but the right recruitment in the coming days will hopefully help going forwards.
Lage has earned the backing of his superiors and it’s important they deliver for him.
