“I’m tired man” These Spurs’ fans give their opinion on Burnley game and it is not good reading
By Bruce Grove -

It is really hard to get behind Tottenham when the team plays as it did against West Ham.

Are there any Spurs’ fans who really expect to win against Burnley tonight? 

Certainly not these supporters on Twitter who mostly remain convinced that Nuno Espirito Santo’s team is doomed to lose in the Carabao Cup today.

After resting their key men for the Europa Conference League fixture against Vitesse last Thursday, Spurs still lost their weekend match against West Ham.

This run of form isn’t one to look back on and expect the Lilywhites to turn up for the match against Burnley.

The Carabao Cup game against the Clarets takes place this evening and Spurs posted about the fixture on Twitter.

Some fans took to the comments to respond, but the responses were overwhelmingly sad, with several of them either begging the team to win the match or concluding that it would end in defeat.

This period seems to be the lowest Spurs have been in several seasons.

Here are some of those responses:

Man United fan Andy Tate said it best.

DONT CARE!

Boring too watch. Boring manager. Players that don’t wanna be there. Shit leadership from the top.

Our stadium is the definition of putting lipstick on a pig.

Even if we win tonight what is the point? we will be out on the next game I think early exit is less damage then later exit.

I think what sums up Spurs perfectly is, win or lose tonight it doesn’t really matter. It’s highly unlikely we will win any silverware this season just as it’s been for the last 20 years under Levy.
Say what you like about the mega rich owners of Chelsea & Man City but the pressure to win things starts from the top. If you fail at either of those clubs or even if you succeed (partially), you are out of the door. Look what Chelsea did to Lampard. There is no room for sentimentality. It’s win at all costs.
We all complain about Levy for variety of reasons and he fully deserves that criticism. However, his biggest fault is not demanding more success on the pitch and that starts with Levy first & foremost.
All of our signings have been mid-range punts at best. We never buy the finished article ready to step into the team and contribute.
The management recruitment has been equally woeful. When he hired Santini & Jol, all his money was on Santini until that failed. He then got lucky that Jol was able to step up.
Jol did a decent job but then Levy sacked him at half time in a game. Redknapp did ok but wanted to improve the team too much and wasn’t backed. Ramos & AVB were awful punts that simply did not work. Jose was a vanity signing and we all saw what happened there.
The only time he got it right was when he went LVG, got turned down and went for Poch.
Poch was the best manager we have had since Burkinshaw and what did Levy do? Sacked him when he should of backed him. Imagine trying to get Poch back into the club now!!

I don’t want Nuno to stay, he looks out of his depth and deeply unhappy. It’s not even 6 months since he took charge.
I don’t want Levy out just because his recruitment, transfer strategy & communication skills are awful. I want him out because we need a chairman who demands more success on the pitch.

The sad thing is when spurs loose tonight the headlines will be about the manager and the game at the weekend which manager gets the sack first. Truth is the money men at the top of both clubs have been blinding the fans with rubbish for years just one club has won cups in that time the other is just about profits

It may take a complete disconnect with the fanbase to take the club in a direction where ENIC and LEVY decide its game over. I do not want this win one lose one mediocrity pattern which we are locked into continuing. We need to rattle the ENIC cage to the extent that they decide it’s finally game over. In many ways, Levy has maneuvered the club down a cul de sac where no decent player or manager wants to be associated with it. Likewise, the brand is toxic for a stadium sponsor other than perhaps an NFL entity but I feel that may be a bridge too far for that at the moment

This is where Levy has failed himself. He would have likely got away with his contempt for the team in general if he had shown more faith in investing in the club. Consider him spending 50-100m during those windows where we bought nobody and then consider the payouts he has coughed up on failed appointments and poor player acquisitions.

Even if ENIC sell, the damage is done. The club has been demolished and something else put in its place.
