‘Whatever happens…’ – Spurs fans fume over club’s pre-Man City Twitter message

 

The Tottenham Hotspur faithful have taken to social media in numbers this evening, to respond to what has been widely deemed as an altogether defeatist message on the part of the club’s Twitter team.

Kane misses out

A new era on the Lilywhite half of North London is of course set to get underway shortly.

After opting to part ways with Jose Mourinho, Spurs will play out the club’s first competitive fixture under the guidance of new boss Nuno Espirito Santo.

The clash could not come as a much more challenging one, with a daunting showdown with Premier League champions Manchester City in store.

The job at hand for Nuno’s men, meanwhile, was made to look an even more harrowing one shortly before the announcement of the club’s starting line-up for this evening.

This comes with star man Harry Kane, of course hotly tipped to make the move to the Etihad this summer, having been completely omitted from the hosts’ matchday squad.

Tottenham, for their part, have assured that the absence of their attacking spearhead comes with Kane simply not yet fit enough to feature.

Murmurs amongst the club’s fanbase that the English international may in fact be mounting one final push to secure a big-money Man City move, though, have inevitably begun to spread.

‘Whatever happens…’

As such, it is safe to say that the atmosphere in North London ahead of kick-off on Sunday is, at best, a tense one.

It therefore goes without saying that any content posted across Spurs’ social media platforms over the last hour should likely have been double-checked, to assure that further fuel was not added to the mounting fire.

In turn, it came as nothing short of a shock when the following message, assuring that ‘Whatever happens, we’ll give it absolutely everything’, made its way onto the Lilywhites’ Twitter account shortly before kick-off:

The tone of the message has since been widely construed as one of a defeatist nature, amid suggestions that Spurs’ admin could only realistically have been hinting at one of two things.

Either that Harry Kane is indeed set to move on, or that actually securing a result this evening could prove a bridge too far for the club:
