Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to social media to voice their frustration at the embarrassing FA Cup draw to League Two outfit Newport County.
For the majority of the match, it would have you to believe that Newport were the Premier League side and Tottenham were from the lower leagues, yes the pitch didn’t help, but that ‘performance’ was diabolical.
It took Harry Kane to once again rescue Tottenham’s blushes with an 82nd minute tap-in, following a Heung-min Son flick at the near post. The goal was Kane’s 30th in all competitions this season.
Unless we win the Premier League or the Champions League, and I’m sure even the most optimistic Spurs fan knows neither of those trophies will be in the cabinet of our new stadium, the FA Cup is our best hope to avoid another trophy-less season, but first of all we need to see off Newport in the replay at Wembley.
Here is a selection of Tweets of what your fellow Spurs fans had to say about our FA Cup draw. Got something to say about the match? Leave your thoughts via the comments section at the bottom of the page.
Embarrassing but at least we’re not out

Just what we needed, a game in between playing Manchester United, Liverpool, Arsenal and Juventus.

Pochettino lmao, useless tactics yet again

That was bad. Didn’t deserve to win at all and we’ve given ourselves an unnecessary extra fixture to play in a tough month of games. Fair play to Newport, who were great.

I love Poch but he got that midfield line up very wrong. Went to out muscle them, didn’t pay off. We’re very lucky to still be in the cup.
