Tottenham supporters have ridiculed their club on social media for releasing an “embarrassing” range of merch to celebrate their triumph in the Carabao Cup final.
Tottenham supporters have ridiculed the club for a range of items released on their club shop in celebration of reaching the Carabao Cup final. The showpiece event is scheduled for 25th April against Manchester City and, after beating Brentford in the semi-final, it’s an opportunity for Spurs to land their first piece of Silverware sine winning the competition in 2008.
However, supporters have mocked the club for making quite so much of an occasion out of reaching a cup final. Tottenham pens, lanyards, mugs, keyrings and fridge magnets are all available for purchase on the club’s shop branded, “Carabao Cup finalists”.
Some of the critics read, “I’m a Spurs fan. I think this is embarrassing especially for the Carabao Cup”.
Another on Twitter read, “No matter how bad it gets, be thankful you aren’t a Spurs fan”.
Another of Tottenham’s couldn’t believe it was real at first and had to check to see for themselves. “I thought this was fake. But it is actually up there”.
The Carabao Cup represents Jose Mourinho and Tottenham’s best chance for silverware as it stands. They were dumped out of the FA Cup on Wednesday night after losing a 5-4 thriller to Everton at Goodison Park.
They are still in the Europa League, however, and face Austrian side Wolfsberger in the last-32. The first leg of that knockout fixture is held on February 18.
Spurs are eighth in the Premier League standings at present, four points behind Liverpool who at present occupy the fourth and final Champions League place.
Mourinho’s men have played a game less than the reds. They return to league action on Saturday evening, away to their fellow Carabao Cup finalists and the Premier League leaders City.
