‘What a dreadful season’ – Some Spurs fans react to club’s FA Cup exit against Norwich

Norwich defeated Tottenham on penalties to knock the Lilywhites out of the FA Cup yesterday evening, with the game ending at 1-1 after extra time.

Spurs started the game on the front foot and deservedly took the lead through Jan Vertonghen. While Norwich ended the half in strong fashion, the home side were good value for their half-time lead.

The away side played with more purpose in the second half and got their just reward when Josip Drimic converted for the Canaries after Michel Vorm fumbled a long-range effort.

Jose Mourinho’s side came back into the game after the equaliser and pushed for a winner. The away side struggled to cope with wave after wave of Spurs attacks and had to resort to desperate defending to force a penalty shootout.

It was Norwich who held their nerve during the spot-kicks to emerge as winners as Erik Lamela, Troy Parrott, and Gedson Fernandes all failed to convert for the home side.

Here’s how some fans reacted to the heartbreak:



Spurs Web Opinion

We clearly sat too deep after going a goal up but I felt we fashioned enough chances to win the game in extra time if not in normal time. With Kane and Son out, we just don’t look like we are going to get the goals required to be winning matches. Our season is now in danger of being over within the next couple of weeks.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Personally I thought the season was over already. Unless somehow we could stay in these cups until Son and Harry come back. I was at the game Sunday, and while it was entertaining, it was so frustrating at the same time. I couldn’t bear to go last night knowing it would be another ugly performance and just did not think we would get knocked out by them. Until it went to penalties and in fairly recent history we have never fared well at them. Parrott, Gelson, should not have been taking one. Fair play they were confident to step up, but it was too important for a poor to average penalty to be taken. Lamela’s just about sums him up. Rarely fit enough for the bench. How on earth did he get a new deal not so long ago? Sunday, I travel on a coach and I guess after we got stuck in Northumberland Park, the street where we park for over an hour after the game. In all it took 4 hours to get home, when it should take 2. It is getting too painful, plus watching so awful football. I know Mourinho needs to overhaul this squad and Levy gets the blame for appointing him. It shows how both are sadly in the dark ages and football has moved on. Levy is a great money man, but we desperately need a director of football to help on transfers and get deals done earlier. It didn’t take a rocket scientist to see if Son went down, with Kane already out, we JUST HAD to get someone in on loan at least. The squad looks so weak. I realise 4 or 5 players out would hurt most sides. Why Vorm played is beyond me. But for his awful mistake, we may have hung on for 1-0 and not the first time he has done that. But he was a cheaper option than signing a new 2nd or 3rd keeper. Gazza clearly isn’t good enough either. The team with one of the best stadiums in the world is run so shabbily on the player front. Each season depends on Harry staying fit and it is quite frankly pathetic. Plus the defence needs so much work doing and no improvement is showing at all since Mourinho arrived. If we can’t beat the worst team in our league and not show the hunger to kill the tie off, something is really wrong right from the top. I just hope the problems start to be reflected in attendances as loyal fans spending fortunes on season tickets and at the stadium are getting little back. It is just an utter disgrace. One league cup on 21 years is the sum of money men, who really don’t know what they are doing. PLEASE GET OUT OF THIS CLUB.

  2. Negative anti football tactics do not belong to ur club and never will.

    The sooner we bring in a manager with a positive mindset, the better.
