Former Tottenham Hotspur defender Graham Roberts has taken to Twitter to express his frustration after watching the 2-1 defeat to West Ham United.
The result means that Tottenham have now lost five of their last six Premier League matches and are now nine points behind the Hammers in the table, who have moved into the top four.
Roberts claimed that Spurs must be the slowest playing side in the top flight and cannot understand why there was not more urgency from the players considering that it was a London derby.
The second half performance was considerably better from the visitors with Gareth Bale having a marked improvement on the game following his introduction, with the Welshman providing the assist for Lucas Moura’s header and later hit the crossbar with a volley.
The result means that Jose Mourinho now has the lowest league win percentage of any Spurs manager since Juande Ramos.
Here’s what Roberts had to say:
I have to admit we must be the slowest playing team in the league as anybody the coaches etc told the players it’s a London bloody derby get out there and show some some boll…s
