With football around the world having ground to a halt as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, the social media departments of clubs are having to dig deep to try and remain creative.

In reality, Tottenham Hotspur have not kicked a ball in a competitive fixture since their disappointing Champions League exit at the hands of RB Leipzig on Tuesday March 10th, nearly a month later the world has become a completely different place with over 60,000 people worldwide having lost their life to COVID-19 (BBC). 

While people are told to stay at home to try and limit the spread of the virus, the Tottenham official Twitter account are trying their best to keep fans entertained.

Yesterday, the club covered a throw-back to our New Year’s Day victory against Chelsea at White Hart Lane against rivals Chelsea in 2015.

When the club released the team sheet for the 3-1 victory, former Spurs player Andros Townsend who was named in the starting eleven by Mauricio Pochettino posted a tongue-in-cheek reply.

The midfielder who scored during the match pretended to question Pochettino’s team selection which included a start for Harry Kane over Robert Soldado, the midfield duo of Ryan Mason and Nabil Bentaleb, along with the fact that he made the team.

He capped off the funny tweet with #PochOut.

Townsend admitted in December that he regretted the way his career at Tottenham came to an end (The Players Tribune).
