Tottenham Hotspur started the new 2021/22 season with an unexpected, but very welcome, victory over Manchester City as we hosted them at White Hart Lane, and on Thursday evening we made the trip over to Pacos de Ferreira for our opening Europa Conference League clash.
Sadly, the less said about our all changed convincing 1-0 defeat is probably for the better as the only silver lining is at 1-0, a stronger squad can pull that back – dare I say our normal squad will pull that back.
Short of resting our better players (who surely at this stage of the season didn’t need resting) it’s woeful preparation for Wolverhampton Wanderers on Sunday afternoon. Spurs are still in a mini change, and undoubtedly Wolves and their new gaffer will be up for sticking one over Nuno as he returns for the first time, and if the Leicester opener is anything to go by, Wolves are now a more offensive outfit anyway in their style of play.
We’ll welcome back some familiar names at any rate, and we certainly won’t be as bad as that, and maybe we’ll even get to see Harry Kane make an appearance.
This one is difficult to call though.
