“Surely one of the most embarrassing nights in Tottenham’s history” This Tweet nails it as Spurs embarrassed
By Bruce Grove -

Tottenham reporter for PA Sport, Jonathan Veal has reacted to Tottenham’s 2-1 loss to NS Mura this evening.

The Slovenian minors shocked Tottenham fans with an inspired display against Spurs this evening.

Their determination to get points from the fixture helped them to take an early lead.

Harry Kane scored to draw Spurs level in the second half, but Mura scored with the last kick of the game to inflict a shocking loss on Antonio Conte’s men.

It is also the Italian’s first defeat as the club’s manager and he will certainly know now the scale of the job he has taken on.

Veal tweeted: “Surely one of the most embarrassing nights in Tottenham’s history #THFC”

The Boy Hotspur Says

This result is truly worse than the 3-0 defeat at Dynamo Zagreb last season.

It is simply inconceivable to think Tottenham can lose to Mura when qualification for the next round is at stake.

It shows that these players are simply not good enough, especially the fringe ones like Dele Alli and Matt Doherty.

Nights like this define the career of a footballer and some of today’s flops might be offloaded by Conte when the transfer window reopens in January.

That must have been worst defeat in his entire career. We destroyed Mourinho’s life time record of achievement in just a few months. Conte just 3 weeks. Deadwood then expect another clean sheet when Big Sam turns up to replace the absent Conte. Ten games till Xmas. Will he hang around that long. Has he got a get out of gaol clause in his contract.?

In a way I hope a scenario like that happens. Surely Levy will finally be backed into a corner he can’t escape from and he’ll have to quit as Chair. Maybe that’s just wishful thinking.

Let’s also not forget this rot started in the final months of Poch’s time at the club. He warned what would happen. He was spot on. The bald megalomaniac didn’t listen and still thinks he knows best. Meanwhile the club slowly dies.

Conte looks dejected already! After this guy, what self respecting manager is going to take the job of managing Spurs? New ownership and a new chairman would breathe new life and optimism into the club. Until then, this downward spiral continues.

I think what we are seeing, and will continue to see, is that there is a rot at the club that stems from the ownership and appalling chairman. We wondered if Mourinho was partly to blame, we thought Nuno was just not up to the just job but with Conte as coach we’ll finally see that it has nothing to do with the coaches and everything to do with how the club is being so badly run.

Lets not forget that these European non performances were happening long before last night, they go back to the Arry and Poch days, there is something wrong here.

What non European performances under Poch and Harry. Under them we beat the European champions twice and got to a ECL final. Bayern was a blow but they were the best club team on the planet that year.
We qualified from the group stages four out the five years we were in the ECL which is miles ahead of the last couple of campaigns.

Yes it is definitely the players.

I am recalling all our trips abroad this season and whatever standard (Rennes are the new PSG/Vitesse the new Ajax) we have made the opposition look good.
These are teams that were not good enough for the EL ffs we should have been eating all of them for breakfast.

I hadnt considered Tony walking before reading on here but it is an interesting thought and would really send a message to the leeches of ENIC and their fanboys

I hope it’s all not just a few of the deadwood. I hope the likes of Dele never put our shirt on again. They should be docked a months wages for that display.

Besides Mura the real winners today are 3 other 4-letter words; Poch, Jose, Nuno. It couldn’t be more clear that this team is bereft of talent and ambition, beyond the support any gaffer can bring. It matters little what formation is played. Time to start over beginning with ENIC out.

Conte is already sounding like Potch did. He didn’t quite say we are a different kind of project but wasn’t far off it by using a similar kind of diplomatic language. If he didn’t know before, he knows what he’s in for now. He can fix it given time and money. Whether he wants to or whether he gets the necessary backing – well that’s entirely another thing. Over to you Daniel.

Conte’s big problem is there is no depth to the squad, we can put out a decent 11 but beyond that we’re struggling. Sanchez, Winks, Gil, Rodon, Sess, Davies, Bergwijn… try hards but not good enough – hard to blame them for simply being rubbish, not their fault they’re taking the Enic shilling.

Dele, NDom, Doherty on the other hand are an absolute disgrace, I don’t want to see any of them in a spurs shirt ever again.

Ten games before Xmas. We could be out of Euro and LC and mid-table. I think Conte could walk before then if things go badly. The deadwood take their biggest scalp yet.

He’s not going to walk away from £30m. He probably knew it was an impossible job, but for that money, so what. Meanwhile Levy is pi*sing money against the wall for a top class manager who is just not going to be able to fix our problems on the pitch; no one can. And some say Levy is a shrewd chairman!

Personally I think Zagreb was worse because that team quit. This lot are just garbage.

After the Zagreb game those players responsible should of been demoted, sold or contracts terminated. Yet still they stink the place out.

Holy cow batman, what a press conference. Conte said “everything” needs changed at Tottenham. He said he’s not a magician.

A magician is what the Chairman expects the manager to be.

If Conte doesn’t get the players he wants in January I think he’ll be off.

I recommend watching Conte’s presser – wow….its sunk in, and he wont let this ruin his reputation, its make or break for Levy…this team is shocking, I don’t think Conte will stay long after Jan if he doesn’t get “a lot” of help..

Sometimes in life it doesn’t matter who you are, you just can’t disguise a turd. Good luck to conte we knew when he took the job what he was facing even if he didn’t.

HH this is the million dollar question can and will Conte have the power to offload or sign his players in any transfer window? Point being the whole team has only 3 players who can be said they are up to standard of any decent team (Kane, Son and Lloris) my believe is he cannot and won’t, which will make his position tricky either he walks away with his dignity intact or he will be sacked and humiliated like a lot of managers before him happened to them I’m not only sure which way it will end up.
