Tottenham Hotspur entered tonight’s semi final second leg one goal to the good, but without their four highest scoring players.

Harry Kane and Dele Alli are out injured until early March, Heung Min Son is still away at the Asia Cup, and Lucas Moura was only fit enough for the bench.

Spurs didn’t seem to know how they were supposed to play in the first half, with Llorente unable to hold the ball up, and Eriksen and Lamela no where near the play.

Defensively they were poor, and they created nothing going forward either, soon finding themselves 2-0 down, 2-1 on aggregate.

However, it was as if someone had flicked a switch in the second half, as Poch changed tactics slightly emphasising a lot of play wide down the left hand flank with Danny Rose.

His crossing eventually led to a Llorente goal, Spurs drew level, and penalties beckoned.

But without many recognisable takers, it was not to be Tottenham’s day, and they fell to a 4-2 loss from the spot.

Here’s how some fans reacted:

  1. Definately the boards fault expecting Poch to win things without bringing in any new signings it’s a farce the way Levy is carrying on, where is the ambition to say we want to win things? also the players we have already must be wondering why we are not bringing in new players to win things, they want to win things aswell and will be off because of the lack of investment because we can’t win things without some outlay! i want new owners that are going to back our manager! Levy Out!!!

  2. By this weekend, we will be out of the 2nd domestic cup competition and comes March, we will be out of the Champions League. By May, we will be out of the top 4 and no CL next season. Trophy less season again and this club has hopeless future with the current chairman and the board. All our top players will leave as well as the manager. Eriksen will be the first one to go and the rest will follow. Mark my words! But I hope I am wrong!
