Tottenham fans on Twitter: All the Reaction to the UCL Draw
The season may only be a couple of weeks old, but Tottenham have already endured a tumultuous time.
While last weekend’s surprising 2-1 defeat against Chelsea at Wembley represented a huge setback, the club finally enjoyed some success in the transfer market, with BBC Sport announcing the signings of Davinson Sanchez from Ajax and former Southampton goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga.
Then came the hotly-anticipated European Champions League draw, with Spurs set to do battle with Apoel Nicosia, Borussia Dortmund and defending champions Real Madrid. As you can imagine, this drew a mixed response on Twitter, while the Lilywhites’ fans managed to showcase the type of dark humour that has become their trademark.

Some took a move optimistic view of the draw, suggesting that Spurs have the pedigree to compete with their prestigious rivals. Others even found the time to troll bitter rivals Arsenal, who find themselves competing in the Europa League this year!
Tottenham Hotspurs will surprise y'all in the UCL.

Every team in group H including Spurs has made the UCL quarters more recently than Arsenal.

For all Spurs fans the CL draw is 5pm… for all Arsenal fans the Chase is on ITV as usual.

There was even a special appearance on Twitter from former Spurs striker and cult favourite Peter Crouch, who was famously sent off at the Bernabéu as Tottenham lost 4-0 against Real Madrid in the Champions League quarter-final of 2011. His response was typical of the man, and lifted a number of Spurs who may have been feeling a little bit downbeat after the draw.
