Wolverhampton Wanderers were consigned to a second straight 1-0 defeat in the Premier League today by Tottenham Hotspur.

It was a winning return for former head coach Nuno Espirito Santo at Molineux, with Dele Alli’s penalty the difference.

Original 16 European Cup Teams: Where Are They Now?

As was the case against Leicester City last weekend, Wolves were great to watch and played attacking football. But they just couldn’t score.

According to Tim Spiers, Wolves have had 42 shots in their opening two matches.

The only team to muster up more than that are league leaders Liverpool.

Clearly, Bruno Lage has already put his stamp on the team.

There is just no way Wolves would have shown this much attacking intent under Nuno.

The issue is that Wolves are just lacking a few players.

There are so many positives signs and the team is not far off being where they need to be.

Wolves are genuinely unlucky to still be sat on zero points.


Since his arrival at the club, Lage has spoken well, and a number of players have praised him and his style.

He’s also come across very well in clips released by the club through their media channels.

You can see he is trying to lay the foundations for a new era and that is appreciated by supporters, many of whom chanted for him today at Molineux.

Quite simply, Fosun have got to back Lage in the transfer window this week.

The first two results just don’t tell the full story.

Arguably, with better players available to him, Lage might well have gotten a few more points on the board.

This week coming is so important for the club.

Get it right and Wolves fans can perhaps think about mid-table and above.

If Fosun don’t show enough faith, a relegation battle could be on the cards.
