Spurs fans react to Danny Ings goal in Aston Villa win
A number of Spurs fans have taken to Twitter to comment on Danny Ings after the Aston Villa star scored an absolutely outrageous goal on his home debut on Saturday.
Ings was linked with Tottenham during the summer window. In fact, The Telegraph reported at one stage that he was their top target.
However, Villa stunned everyone by swiftly announcing an initial £25 million deal for the 29-year-old as Jack Grealish neared his move to Manchester City.
And the early signs suggest that it could be money well spent from the Villans.
He scored from the penalty spot on the opening day. And he has now followed that with a stunning goal as Dean Smith’s side beat Newcastle on Saturday.
The Englishman scored a brilliant overhead kick to put Villa in front in his first game inside his new home.
It was a goal that may have made a number of clubs rue not doing more to try and sign the striker in recent months.
It certainly seems that a lot of Spurs fans are not best pleased.
Whether Harry Kane stays or leave, Tottenham need at least one striker in this window. And Ings is a proven goalscorer in the Premier League.
Of course, it cannot be ruled out that Spurs did make a serious move. But given how long Ings was available for, there is certainly reason to believe that they could have done more to get a deal done.
‘Spursy’: Tottenham fans react as Danny Ings scores stunning goal
And after watching his stunner on Saturday, some Spurs fans feel that their side really missed a trick.
With that in mind, here is what some of the Tottenham supporters were saying after Ings’s goal…
Vinicius left and Danny Ings was available at a very affordable price.
The logical thing would’ve been to replace Vinicius with a quality experienced prem striker at good value.
What did Spurs do?
Ignored the fact Vinicius has left and let someone else snap ings up.

The fact we didn’t pay to get Ings is a big miss this summer.

This outrageous goal SHOULD have been from a Japhet Tanganga throw in, a Lucas Moura flick-on and scored by Ings in front of the huge #Spurs south stand…

20ms for Ings should have been a no brainer for Spurs. Unserious football club. So poorly run.
