“Typical Tottenham” – BBC pundit rips Spurs for their FA Cup loss to Middlesbrough

By Eddie Razo -

Tottenham Hotspur saw their only hopes to win a trophy this season go up in smoke after they crashed in the 5th round of the FA Cup following an extra-time goal from Middlesbrough FC’s Josh Coburn. 

Spurs managed 15 total shots, with six hitting the target; however, they couldn’t find the back of the net. After the match, BBC pundit Alan Shearer blasted the north London club for looking “flaky” against Boro. 

Furthermore, Shearer stated that the result pulled out by Middlesbrough wasn’t a fluke victory; they were the better side over 90 minutes and extra time. 

“This was no fluke,” Shearer said on the BBC (via Daily Mail). “Spurs were so flaky, typical Tottenham. They were the better team from start to finish. They were first to every tackle; they created chances and had more energy.”

“Certainly in extra-time, they made the better substitutions, and Chris Wilder can be extremely proud of what his team has achieved tonight.”

Shearer applauded Middlesbrough, whose players were up for the matchup; meanwhile, the BBC pundit adds, Spurs weren’t up for the FA Cup match, taking a shot at Antonio Conte’s squad, saying, “typical Tottenham” to close out his criticism. 

“What a night for Middlesbrough and their fans, [Wilder] was up for it, the players were up for it; it’s a shame the Tottenham players weren’t up for it. Typical Tottenham, Middlesbrough thoroughly deserved to be in the quarter-finals,” Shearer said. 

Tottenham will now have to focus on finishing in the top-four as they close out another season without any silverware.

Winks has featured in 24 games for Spurs this season in all competitions. We have lost 10 of those 24 games. Winning 12 and drawn 2.
A 50% win ratio.

We’ve won 9 out of 16 when he has come on as a sub or wasn’t in the match day squad.
A 56% win ratio.

Indeed, I’d like to see the loss percentage when Winks is playing.

Hansen was spot on when he stated this infamous quote “You never win anything with a Winks in your team”
