Poor, poor Spurs fans.
It’s been a tough couple of weeks for Lilywhite supporters as yet another season of so much promise appears to have been torpedoed into submission in the past few matches.
It all started going wrong at Sunderland, where Tottenham were resoundingly beaten 3-1 by the previously faltering Black Cats to knock them out of pole position for the race for fourth. And after having the Champions League dreams dented, it got worst last weekend in the FA Cup semi-final as penniless Portsmouth upset the odds to dump Spurs out of the cup in extra time.
Rubbing Tottenham fans faces in it is the following amateur video taken before and after the semi-final at Wembley.
Simply, the video captures the thoughts of several over-confident Spurs fans before the match talking up just how easily the south coasters would be rolled over. And then comes the after shots, in which the video author fails to find one Tottenham fan who is prepared to react on camera.
