Tottenham Hotspur: Sky Sports man pokes fun following latest defeat

Image for Tottenham Hotspur: Sky Sports man pokes fun following latest defeat

Sky Sports presenter Joe Thomlinson took to Twitter to poke some fun at Tottenham Hotspur as a picture of Antonio Conte emerged, appearing to show him shushing the opposition, only for Spurs to go on and lose their midweek game.

On Wednesday night, Tottenham Hotspur fell to only their second league defeat since Conte came to the club, but this was definitely a concerning one as they let a 2-1 lead at home slip as well as being generally dominated by Southampton when it came to shots, shots on target and possession.

Spurs took the lead twice against the Saints, but ended up leaving with nothing to show for their efforts. And if that wasn’t bad enough, to see their manager shush the opposition when leading with just under 20 minutes left, only to end up with egg on his face, is not a great look.

Thomlinson sent a brutal one-word tweet out with the image of Comte shushing the opposition, showing his embarrassment over the situation:

Will Spurs make the top four?





TIF Thoughts on Conte…

The Italian was and likely still is a major coup of an appointment for Spurs given his track record of winning silverware, and having got them truly in the hunt for a top-four spot if they win their games in hand, given Tottenham’s lack of experience at winning silverware, this could be his toughest task yet.

He should have known better to shush people when there is still plenty of time left in the game and Tottenham are involved, while you only have to look a couple of weeks back when they were involved in a game that saw an unlikely and very late winning goal scored, but that time it was in their favour.
