Supporters turn on Spurs in first game back
There is a palpable angst blanketing Tottenham Hotspur Football Club and its supporters. Fans were welcomed back to the ground for the first time in about 14 months. What should have been a commemorative, celebratory event turned sour quickly, with large swaths of the 10,000-strong crowd audibly jeering and booing their beloved Spurs.
The match, admittedly and begrudgingly, was an absolute howler. One would have expected Tottenham to come out, with the galvanizing effect of supporters, guns blazing. And while portions of Spurs’ performance was particularly abject, it was slightly premature to deride a team in dire need of support.
Emotions are running extremely high at the moment. People are pissed off with the owners and how they’ve handled every matter under the sun since the onset of the pandemic. Some players are underperforming while others are deadweight.
"And to pour Himalayan salt on an already gangrene, puss-filled wound, Harry Kane is reportedly planning his future elsewhere."
That, along with the exorbitant £60 base-rate ticket price, was enough to push violently Tottenham’s faithful off the edge. They aired their collective frustration, upset by a litany of on-field failures.
So there’s no judgement either way. Supporters want nothing more than to see their club succeed, which after this season’s precipitous regression, seems a mere pipe dream.
