Wolverhampton Wanderers supporters have been talking about Nuno Espirito Santo, who is reportedly facing the sack already at Tottenham Hotspur.
The former Molineux boss has endured a tough start in north London.
Yesterday Spurs were beaten 3-0 by a Manchester United side that went into the game licking their wounds after the 5-0 to Liverpool.
It was an awful display by Tottenham, and the defeat was their fifth of the season in the Premier League.
They are only two points off fourth place, but fans are unhappy with the brand of football on display.
Spurs look a shadow of the team they were under Mauricio Pochettino.
Wolves fans will know all about how difficult a team can be to watch under Nuno.
He achieved absolutely brilliant things during his time as Wolves manager.
But the brand of football was negative, with his final season very tough to watch at times. Indeed, Paul Scholes said earlier this month that Wolves were ‘boring to watch’.
It has been claimed that the style of play was one of the reasons Nuno ultimately moved on. The board supposedly wanted to freshen things up and head in a different direction. Hence the appointment of Bruno Lage, who is very much the opposite of Nuno.
Wolves fans react as Nuno faces Spurs sack
On social media, supporters have been talking about Nuno, amid reports Spurs are actually now considering sacking him already.
Quite a few people have been expressing their sympathy for a man they used to worship. That said, most feel happy Lage is now at the helm at Molineux.
Some have noted how he appears to have picked up where he left off last season, looking dejected and forlorn:
I just watched nuno’s interview and keep seeing that viral photo of him on the touchline.
He just looks broken.

There’s no way he could of turned the Spurs job down but the best thing Nuno could do done in the summer was have a break. He looks lost.
We would of been in a relegation battle if we’d of kept him. #wwfc

Feel for Nuno in a way.
He’s so blinkered by a negative, defensive approach that it’s costing him his career.
With players so much better technically now and fans wanting to be entertained, you can’t base your whole ethos on sitting back and offering nothing.#wwfc

Feel for Nuno doesn’t deserve those boos #wwfc

I’ll always love Nuno for what he achieved at Wolves, but it looks like our owners were right to move him on (despite my dislike of the decision at the time).
Bruno Lage’s team are much more exciting to watch. #WWFC 🧡🖤

The hurt I feel for Nuno and his style now.
Where has the Nuno gone from the first two seasons with us??
Solution football has taken over intensity football.
Boredom has taken over excitement.
Fear has taken over bravery.

It’s sorry to see. Those early days, the first 2.5 years were brilliant.

His body language looks like he’s fell out of love for football, probably needs 6.months out of it
