Jamie Carragher has argued that Tottenham fans should not have jeered the players during their 2-1 loss to Newcastle United last Sunday.

It was just a fortnight ago that Spurs were level on points with Manchester City after the first 10 Premier League games of the season.

However, that now feels like a lifetime ago, with Tottenham falling to two back-to-back losses in the Premier League against Manchester United and Newcastle, while also being held to a draw at home in the Champions League by Sporting Lisbon.

The defeat against the Magpies came as a particular shock, given Tottenham’s impressive home record over recent months.

The fans at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium made their feelings clear last Sunday, with jeers echoing around the ground at half-time as well as after the full-time whistle.

Carragher has now called on Spurs fans to get behind their head coach and backed Conte to make the Lilywhites a force.

The former Liverpool centre-back wrote in The Telegraph: “Personally, I think the reaction during the Newcastle game was extremely harsh. I am a huge admirer of the Italian and believe the longer he sticks around, the stronger Spurs will be.”

I never understand this mentality that some fans have that they are entitled to boo bad performances, given the high ticket prices they pay. That is a ridiculous assertion as the players are clearly trying their best to win matches.

I would understand jeering if the players do not give 100 per cent but that was clearly not the case on Sunday. It is at difficult times like these that supporters need to get behind the players and push them on rather than bringing their confidence down even further.
