It will likely take a while for Tottenham Hotspur fans to recover from the humiliation of being thrashed 7-2 at home by Bayern Munich, a result that no one saw coming.
Most Spurs fans probably copped a fair share of flak at work and school over the past couple of days from rival fans and there is little we could say after conceding seven at home in a competitive fixture, the first time the Lilywhites have done so in their entire 137 year history.
Former Tottenham midfielder Micky Hazard has taken to social media to react to the result and it is clear that he is just as flabbergasted and embarrassed as the rest of us.
The 59-year-old, who had two spells at Spurs, insisted that it was not that Bayern were great on the night but rather the fact that Pochettino’s men failed to turn up for the second half that was the reason for the thrashing.
In shock didn’t see that coming the way we started the game. The fans wee awesome atmosphere superb the start was great chance after chance, we get the goal and then we fell apart. Bayern weren’t great just we were so bad in that second half. Lost for words this morning COYS

It is going to take a long time for the scars from this result to heal. If it is so hard for us to take, one can only imagine how embarrassed and disappointing the players and coaching staff must feel. Hopefully, this result hasn’t completely shattered the players’ confidence and they will be able to marshal a response against Brighton on Saturday.
