Spurs fans react to club's Emerson Royal tweet on Sunday

A number of Spurs fans have taken to social media to hit out at the club after their tweet to mark the debut of Emerson Royal on Saturday.

Tottenham were thrashed 3-0 at Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park. It proved to be a particularly miserable second-half for the visitors.

Japhet Tanganga picked up two yellow cards in the space of five minutes. And the Eagles went on to score three times to win in emphatic fashion.

Many have made it clear that their frustration is not aimed at Royal. Instead, they cannot understand why the club felt it had any reason to post anything positive from yesterday’s game.
