Former Tottenham man, Ramon Vega has hit out at the current players for their display in the North London Derby this evening, calling it ’embarassing’.
Spurs started the match without a clear game plan beyond hoofing it long to Harry Kane and Arsenal soon made them pay, scoring three within the first 45 at the Emirates.
Tottenham were stunned by the high-press of the Gunners and offered little in the way of their own attacking creativity, which has been a theme of the Lilywhites this season.
While Spurs did improve in the second half, it was largely down to Arsenal sitting off and allowing them to have the ball and they only managed to claw back a single goal.
Three games into the Premier League season, Spurs were top of the table and Arsenal were bottom, now the Gunners are ahead of their North London rivals.
Vega argued that the Spurs players should take the tube home to see the disappointment on fans’ faces and what it means to play in a North London Derby.
He tweeted: ‘I think the Spurs players should take the Tube home today. So they can feel and see the disappointment and what it means to play a North London derby, especially to lose like that, Embarrassing!’

Spurs Web Opinion:
Can’t argue with Vega here. The majority of the players today not only played poorly, we can forgive that, but they let the fans down with their lack of effort and desire. It was a frustrating and heartbreaking performance to watch.
