Tottenham Hotspur fans on Twitter have been responding to the latest post from Lilywhites journalist Jack Pitt-Brooke. 

This comes after Pitt-Brooke shared a post on his official Twitter page after Spurs’ recent 2-1 defeat against Arsenal relaying Jose Mourinho’ quotes from his press before the north London clash.

Test your knowledge of these Tottenham players' market values! How much do you think Hugo Lloris is worth?

With regards to Arsenal’s position in the prior to the showdown at the , Mourinho said that he doesn’t look down the table at his opponents.

In response to these comments from Mourinho, Pitt-Brooke said that Spurs set up against Arsenal like “they were David facing Goliath.”

This post then gathered a lot of replies from Spurs fans who were quick to share their thoughts on the matter.

So, what did these Spurs fans have to say in response to Pitt-Brooke’s post on Mourinho’s comments and the Arsenal defeat?

“He is very fortunate that there are no fans allowed in”

@StuartMcCallum2

“He’s finished, simple as.”

@JR_THFC

“Treated them as if they were prime Wenger, baffling game plan”

@jlewis2891

“Exactly. This is the poorest Arsenal side of the PL era. Even after today they are 4 points behind us. Yet we set up as if it’s the invincibles. I can take losing. I can’t take the negativity.”

@AJones08711409

“Dinosaur as a manager, get him gone.” 

@Tom_Read92

“Jose out”

@jme_900

Looking at the replies to Pitt-Brooke’s post on Mourinho, it appears that these Spurs fans are in agreement with the journalist’s view on how the 58-year-old set his team up against Arsenal, with some even suggesting that he should leave the club as a result.

Do you blame Mourinho for the defeat against Arsenal?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Given how Arsenal had more possession and total shots at goal than Spurs did throughout the game (per WhoScored), this suggests that Mourinho’s side certainly were on the backfoot during periods of the match.

Moving forward, these Spurs fans will undoubtedly be hoping that Mourinho can put this defeat behind them and help get his side back on track and return to winning ways as soon as possible so they can end the season as high up the table as possible.

However, it is clear that some fans may be more concerned with how they play rather than what they achieve.
