Ex-Spurs player slams current team for having no spine in embarrassing defeat

If Tottenham Hotspur had been poor for the first nine games of the season then number ten blew all concept of the word out of the water.

Spurs took on Bayern Munich in their second group stage match in the Champions League last night, looking to make a big statement at home against the German champions.

Spurs certainly made a statement alright, but for all the wrong reasons as they fell to an embarrassing 7-2 defeat at the hands of Serge Gnabry and co.

Tottenham actually started the match as the better team and went 1-0 up through a Heung Min Son finish, but they failed to convert a number of early chances.

Failing to put the game to bed, Tottenham conceded two goals in the first half to Bayern, followed by a complete and utter capitulation in the second 45.

Ex-Spur, Paul Robinson, has now claimed that something is amiss at Spurs at the moment and that the team had no spine in their display last night.

He said (Sky Sports): “It’s a totally embarrassing night for Tottenham. Pochettino has got big problems. There’s clearly something amiss. They look disjointed and disgruntled. When they went two or three goals down, there was no fight.

“Tottenham were appalling. It’s unacceptable. They capitulated. They had no leaders on the pitch. They had no spine, they had no fight. It was a very, very worrying display.”
