‘Embarrassing’. That’s how Tottenham’s performance was summed up by Eric Dier as he left the pitch.
According to several journalists at the JobServe Community Stadium, the midfielder was walking towards the tunnel with team-mate Victor Wanyama and reflected on a bad night where Colchester dumped them out the Carabao Cup.
And he wouldn’t be alone in thinking that about the performance of the Premier League team and last season’s Champions League finalists against League Two opposition.
Fans were far from impressed, with one fan telling talkSPORT he thought the performance was ‘gutless, spineless and lacked ideas’.
“They still had six internationals playing, so they should be well capable of beating a League Two side,” he said.
“Will they get to the Champions League final again? Probably not. Premier League? No chance.
“The FA Cup and League Cup are the only things they can realistically win.”
