SPURS boss Nuno Espirito Santo has enjoyed a decent start to his life there.
Two Premier League wins came either side of their 1-0 loss to Pacos de Ferreira in the Europa Conference play-off.

Although you would expect Tottenham to win tomorrow’s second leg.
But the club’s players have yet to truly warm to the Portuguese, despite him impressing with his coaching methods.
And the new man has not only been questioning Harry Kane’s commitment to Tottenham.
In a team meeting, Nuno went around the room and, sort of David Brent style, asked all the players individually, ‘Do you want to be at Spurs?’.
Most of the answers were positive, with one or two exceptions.
However, even though some at Spurs Lodge are struggling with his frosty man-management, no one will care if Tottenham keep on winning.
G-TIZZ – STEVIE’S NOW A SILENT HERO
STEVEN GERRARD has been in the spotlight for approaching 25 years, so knows all about image.
So it is a surprise that his spell at Rangers is turning into a public relations disaster.
Gerrard, 41, took over at Ibrox in 2018 and last season led them to a first title in ten years without losing a game.
Yet relations with the media were still poor. Now, Rangers are demanding £25,000 per news outlet for club access.
With cash-strapped organisations obviously refusing to pay, Gerro now barely speaks to the Scottish media.
After Sunday’s win at Ross County, he claimed to know nothing about Everton’s £5million offer for Nathan Patterson.
Yet 30 minutes later, Gerrard confirmed the story to a fans’ group.
ANOTHER DALE, ANOTHER DOLLAR
AARON RAMSDALE has joined Arsenal in a £24million deal that could be worth £30m.
Needless to say, the already unhappy fans at the Emirates are divided in opinion about this move.

There was a 2,000-word article in The Athletic titled: Why Arsenal Signed Aaron Ramsdale.
It was written by James McNicholas and there was some decent background stuff in there.
Maybe it helped that the agent for Ramsdale is Charlie McNicholas — the writer’s brother.
Arsenal, meanwhile, who pride themselves on their prolific social media accounts, are advertising for a new social media editor on their jobs page.
In a few weeks’ time, there could be a bigger job up for grabs at the club.
KLEAN GET-AWAY WITHOUT THE SCORE
BARNET chairman Tony Kleanthous apologised to fans after a shambolic build-up to their National League opener against Notts County.
Kleanthous wrote about the nightmare few days which saw the club’s new shirts arrive without badges or numbers.
There were no new match balls and the new chef was not good enough, so all the hospitality had to be scrapped.
There was no beer due to a problem with the supplier and not enough stewards.
In his apology, Kleanthous did not even mention the result. They lost 5-0 at The Hive.
