Tottenham fans on Twitter love these comments from unlikely source

Tottenham fans on Twitter have loved seeing comments from the media that claim that they’re not a team of bottlers but are instead massive overachievers given how far they’ve come in the last five years under Mauricio Pochettino. The comments have come from Robbie Savage, a very unlikely source, and you can read them in The Mirror.

The Lilywhites have come in for a lot of stick for being bottle jobs as they made it three semi-final defeats in a row when they lost to Chelsea on penalties in the Carabao Cup, having previously being beaten in the last four of the FA Cup in the last two seasons. That, though, doesn’t necessarily mean that the Lilywhites are bottlers, especially when you consider all the circumstances of their situation.

Of the Premier League’s ‘big six’, Tottenham have spent significantly less than the other five and also boast a much lower wage bill. The lack of spending is one thing, but when you factor in that this season alone has seen the club have to contend with a whopping 37 injuries whilst playing every game away from home as they’ve been at Wembley, and if you were to put any of the other top six clubs into that scenario it’s hard to see how they’d cope as well as Spurs have.

The Lilywhites have loved seeing Savage’s comments on their club, even if they didn’t expect to hear it from him.
