Tottenham Hotspur were dumped out of the Carabao Cup this evening after a penalty shoot out defeat to Colchester United.
The League Two side performed admirably against Premier League opposition, who were an absolute disgrace to the shirt.
The Spurs players looked tired and bereft of confidence. Some may say that the result doesn’t matter but it’s massively embarrassing for a club which made it to the final of the Champions League last season.
The cracks seem to be deeper than first thought, this result has certainly been coming in recent weeks. There’s a lot of work to do to get the player’s confidence back and get them back to the standards we expect.
Pochettino’s body language in recent weeks has also been plain to see with his arms crossed, looking at the ground and somewhat spiky when talking to the media.
His tactics have also got to be questioned, why did he decide to pick three central defenders and two holding midfielders in his starting eleven; we set up with a huge lack of creativity.
Here is how some Spurs fans have reacted to the result.

Eriksen should’ve left

Well done spurs, you’ve managed to reach a new low, this is what happens when you do not invest in the squad
It’s over, time for a change at the top
1 trophy in 20 years, worst drought in our history but our chairman is highest paid in the league ?

Loooooool. We’re so bad that it’s actually hysterical
— Joe (@JblincoTHFC) 24 September 2019
You should be ashamed of yourselves. The whole team.

Why are people hiding from the truth that without a lucky cl final Poch would already be gone…
5 wins in 21 games, relegation form
1 away win in 2019 which was a 90th minute lucky cross against fucking Fulham.
Something needs to fucking change

How can you not question Poch after tonight?!
He picked that squad and motivates the players.
Never been Poch out but something ain't right.
CL final papered over cracks and he's in his 6th season and yet to win a trophy

Poch has lost the dressing room.
He's a great coach and it'll be a sad day when he goes but it looks like the writing is on the wall.
He's taken this club as far as he can imo.
Moneys there for new deals, there's a reason why they havent signed, need to start looking at Poch.

These players are no longer commited
For what ever the reason, Manager, tactics, selection, wages, personal attitudes what ever you wanna try and think of I just don't know
If they've turned against Poch we need to know why
If their not listening we need to know why
