Ryan Mason on what it will take to unify the Spurs fans with the club and players

Ryan Mason has admitted that it will take some time to create a feeling of unity among the Tottenham Hotspur fans, players and those involved in the running of the club.

Tottenham Hotspur’s players pledged to refund the price of match tickets for fans who travelled away for their humiliating defeat at Newcastle United last month having watched their side go 5-0 down in the opening 21 minutes at St James’ Park, with many deciding to leave the game early.

It was a similar scene at Anfield on Sunday where Mason found his side 3-0 behind inside the opening fifteen minutes which again left many heading for the exit at Liverpool but not before chanting.

Tottenham welcome in-f0rm Crystal Palace to north London tomorrow afternoon where their hopes of an appearance of featuring in Europe next season now looks to be a battle with Aston Villa for a spot in the Europa Conference League, a dramatic fall from grace compared to last season’s Champions League qualification.

He told Football.London: “I think that’s a process. It takes time. What we probably can see from the first two performances is we’ve got a group that are working together.

“Sometimes you don’t get the results. We need to create a feeling where everyone is aligned, the club, the players and the fans.”

SpursWeb Opinion

Many supporters felt close to the club during the Mauricio Pochettino era, especially during the heights of the Champions League run where true appreciation was shown between those in the stands and the players on the pitch.

#TogetherTHFC was a well-used social media hashtag by the club’s staff across various platforms at the time, now nothing could be further from the truth with the board seemingly having ignored any opportunity to bring back Pochettino to the club and looks set to take charge of rivals Chelsea instead.
