Tottenham’s defeat at Leicester on Saturday caused some Spurs fans on social media to have a mini-meltdown. The team took the lead for the third away game in a row but failed to capitalise on it one again, thus remaining winless on the road so far this season.
While some Spurs fans seemed to be upset with Pochettino’s decisions, others pointed their fingers at the team’s lack of resilience.
Meanwhile, one Spurs fan decided to send an angry message to midfielder Harry Winks on Twitter, not because he was disappointed with the midfielder’s performance, but due to his failure to get his hands on the 23-year-old’s shirt.
The fan in question, Sonny Hartman, was desperately hoping to get Winks’ shirt after the game but only a handful of Spurs stars went over to acknowledge the travelling support at the King Power Stadium after the final whistle.
Football.London reported that Hartman used less than complimentary language to tell the England midfielder that his younger brother had spent all day Friday making the sign asking for his shirt.
While Hartman has now deleted his tweet, he allegedly described Winks as an “ignorant p****” for not coming over to applaud the fans.
The Spurs midfielder, however, paid no heed to the abusive language and tweeted him back with a classy response, promising his brother a shirt.
Tell your little brother I’m sorry mate. Dm me your address I will send him one

Some Spurs fans on social media hailed Winks for his classy response, which they felt was more than the fan deserved.
Good on you Harry some fans just don’t appreciate how much hard work you put in and the fact that you’re always observing the game instead of looking around gormless ???

Don’t give him it Winksy. You’re being way to generous here, he needs to learn about respect first.

Fair play Harry but I’m sorry that guy doesn’t deserve your shirt after words like that!

Spurs Web Opinion
While Harry Winks is fast evolving into one of the most consistent midfielders in the Premier League, he also seems to be a perfect role model for fans off the field as well. He always says the right thing in interviews and also possesses a fantastic mentality as he is never one to hide on the pitch even if things don’t seem to be going his way.
