on Twitter have been responding to the latest social media post from Spurs journalist Alasdair Gold. 

This comes after the journalist shared a post on his official Twitter account relaying a video originally posted by the official Spurs Twitter page of highlights from a recent squad training session.

Heung-min Son at Tottenham Hotspur

How well do you remember Heung-Min 's time with Spurs? - The Lilywhites signed Son from which Bundesliga side?

Gold captioned his post with the points he has taken from watching the training footage. The first point he said was that “Tanguy Ndombele’s clearly not looking to impress in training or ever play for Mourinho again”.

Another point he said was that it was “fair play” of Ndombele to be wearing a hat in training “when lesser men would faint”.

Gold’s final point was that Oliver Skipp “will hunt you down & clatter you even in training.”

This post from Gold then gathered a lot of replies from Spurs who were quick to respond, specifically on Gold’s points about Ndombele.

Here’s a sample of Spurs fans responding to the post:

The Frenchman signed to Tottenham in the previous summer transfer window from Lyon for a fee of £54 million (per Transfermarkt).

Since then, the midfielder has gone on to make 19 appearances in the Premier League so far this year, with his performances in those appearances earning Ndombele a season rating of 6.76/10, making him Spurs’ 12th-highest-rated player this campaign (per WhoScored).

Would you start Ndombele in Spurs' next fixture?

Yes

Yes

No

No

However, Gold then replied to his original tweet revealing that his point on Ndombele was sarcastic.

It’s good to see that the majority of these Spurs fans picked up on the light-hearted sarcasm of Gold’s tweet.

On the other hand, the fact that some Spurs fans took it seriously and were somewhat offended by this post from Gold shows just how much they like the midfielder and want to see him thrive at Tottenham.
