Tottenham’s elimination from the Carabao Cup at the hands of League Two Colchester United has predictably generated headlines across the country.
The defeat comes as a major blow to Tottenham’s chances of winning silverware this season.
With the club yet to win a trophy under Mauricio Pochettino, the Argentine insisted before the start of the season that the team needed to win a trophy for this season to be a success (Evening Standard).
Andy Goldstein, a presenter at talkSPORT has insisted that it is hard to overestimate how big a loss the one on Tuesday is for Tottenham given they are currently in their longest trophyless run since the 1960s.
Watch Goldstein’s take on the result below:
"The league is out of reach by miles, I doubt they'll win the Champions League."
"This is Tottenham's longest spell since the 60s without a trophy!" 🏆

I believe Pochettino did the right thing by making the changes he did for the game given that a lot of Spurs stars haven’t seen too much football recently. However, the players who started as well as the ones who came on from the bench failed to show the required intent and intensity to break Colchester down.
