Spurs fan reveals ‘pathetic’ thing stadium staff did during lap of appreciation

One Tottenham Hotspur fan has criticised stadium staff for playing loud music after the final whistle in the last home game of the season, disrupting supporters’ attempts to say farewell to the likes of Lucas Moura and Hugo Lloris.

Tottenham fell to a disappointing defeat against Brentford this weekend in front of their own crowd. What could have been a celebratory event turned sour as Spurs failed to hold on to a lead given to them by a Harry Kane free-kick.

Brentford came out firing in the second half and managed to secure all three points in a 3-1 win at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium to compound a miserable campaign for Spurs.

The game was the final time Lucas Moura will play in front of the home supporters, with the Brazilian set to leave on a free transfer this summer.

Hugo Lloris is also thought to be on his way out of the club this summer (Evening Standard). Although he didn’t play this weekend, the game against Brentford may have been the final time the Spurs supporters see the Frenchman on home soil.

Alasdair Gold claimed the home fans were booing at the final whistle yesterday, but were drowned out by stadium music very quickly.

Now, a Tottenham supporter has taken to Twitter to vent her frustration at the decision to silence the fans with music at full time.

She said: “Maybe those of us who stayed in the ground for the lap wanted to give Harry a bit of a song or bid farewell to Hugo and Moura but no, Tottenham decide to blast out music at full volume throughout the lap so that any Levy Out chants can’t be heard. Pathetic.”

Spurs Web Opinion

It’s laughable how desperate the club is to sweep the dissatisfaction of the fans under the rug this season.

The supporters deserve to be heard, whether it be for positive or negative reasons. Spoiling the lap of appreciation like that is very unfair.
