A sensational return to management for English boss Dan Griffin has seen him sign a 2 year contract with North London club Tottenham Hotspur. The deal was thought to be agreed and wrapped up last friday, but has just been announced today along with 6 new signings for Griffin.

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy has been wanting a manager with alot of experience in the English leagues since the Harry Redknapp days, and since the sacking of Andre villas Boas, it was always inevitable that Griffin was going to return to the game.

With the season now underway, Griffin is looking to absoloutely dominate England and bring back all three available domestic trophies and look to qualify for next years UEFA Champions league.

Tottenham quick off the mark.

Christian Eriksen '55

Christian Eriksen bags his first goal of the season and secures all 3 points.

Dan Griffin's return has been bouncing all around England this week and everyone was expecting an easy win for him when his side took on West Brom last Saturday. With none of the new signings available to take place in the squad, he had to select a squad of 18 left over from the AVB era.

It was a nervy first 30 minutes for the new boss as the scoreline was sat on 1-1, with The Baggies equalising through Argentine Claudio Yacob on 21 minutes, and they were pushing for a lead. Half Time score 1-1 with the Birmingham outfit looking most likely to score.

Start of the second half and it looked like Griffin really pelted into his side and got them roaring, as they scored 2 inside the first 10 minutes of the restart through Nacer Chadli and Christian Eriksen. The assists came through Roberto Soldado, Eriksen and Vlad Chiriches.

Full time at the Lane and Spurs ran out 3-1 winners, a comfortable result in the end. The win leaves them lying in 3rd place, heres what the Spurs boss had to say;

'It's a great start for me, i'm disappointed we didn't keep a clean sheet but you cant have it all! First win under our belts is great and we look to go get a win against Villa on Wednesday night.'

Spurs score twice to sink HSV.

Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 HSV

Walker '50

Cavani '85 (penalty)

Walker celebrates the opening goal in Spurs' Europa League clash.

Two goals from Kyle Walker and Edinson Cavani in the second half were enough to send HSV back to Germany with 0 points in their vital Group B clash at the Lane.

The win puts Griffin's Spurs at the summit of the group, after just one game. VFB Stuttgart and Russian outfit Spartak Moskva are the other two teams that make up Group B and two goals from Dmitri Kombarov secured a 2-1 win for Spartak.

As things stand, this is how Group B looks;

1. Tottenham Hotspur 3

2. Spartak Moskva 3

----------------------

3. VFB Stuttgart 0

4. HSV 0
