Tottenham in freefall as they lose again
There are lots of happy Arsenal fans this afternoon as Tottenham have been soundly beaten once again, this time away at lowly Brighton, who were without a win since the opening day of the season.
It was hardly surprising even, considering Spurs haven’t won away since January last season when they beat a relegation bound Fulham. They were a little embarrased by losing to Colchester in the League Cup on the Tuesday before last, just three days after losing at Leicester, and then this Tuesday were totally destroyed by Bayern Munich at the New Tottenham Stadium, before making the trip to the South Coast to face Brighton.
Vertonghen said to Football.London after the Munich humiliation: “It was a painful night for us. They punished us with every single mistake we made and we let the fans and everyone at the club down with this result.”
2pur7 confidence must be at all time low, and Vertonghen went on to describe the feelings in the dressing room. “Bad. Everyone is ashamed of this result. There’s not too much I can say about this.
“I think everyone will have a bad night’s sleep and probably a couple about this.”
“It is up to us to try to change it as quickly as possible. This is part of football, sometimes you are on the good side, sometimes you are on the bad side. We have to be men and take responsibility to try to change this as quickly as possible.
“We work hard and the only way up is to work hard and try to improve. Of course, the fans are disappointed, we are as well.”
They will be even more disappointed after today and it looks like they are freefall. Arsenal will hopefully put some distance over Spurs in the table tomorrow, and also Chelsea, Crystal Palace or even (dare I say it) Bournemouth could leapfrog them as well.
Let’s all celebrate the best result of the day!
