Tottenham have gone out of their second domestic cup competition in just four days and the Tottenham faithful are from happy about it.
It was not that they got beat but the manner is how they got beat, the fact that Pochettino did not play the best players available to him including Eriksen and the general lack of passion from the players has not gone down well.
Daniel Levy, the clubs co-owner and chairman is coming in for some significant criticism for the lack of investment in a squad that is clearly crying out for it, which has never been more highlighted now that Spurs are without three of their top men.
A quick look on Twitter and it is abundantly obvious that the Spurs fans are far from happy, the anger is pure and from the soul, they have simply had enough and the prospect of another season without a trophy is now very real.
A sample of some tweets from angry Tottenham fans
Any other club and there would be fan protests. We're now completely paying the price of lack of investment in the squad. The lack of ambition by Levy is shocking. Yes we have a great new stadium coming, but with injuries, this team just isn't good enough. #THFC #COYS

You have to question (and criticise) #Pochettino team selection tonight. Injuries, yes but to not even have your best fit player (Eriksson) in the squad in a winnable cup tie… Little sympathy for the probable empty trophy cabinet this year #CRYTOT #THFC

Never been totally convinced by Poch & my opinion is starting to slip further! No Eriksen in the squad is without doubt a blatant disregard for this game. We are depleted but still had players at our disposal to beat Palace today but instead Poch not to bother. #THFC

Absolutely disgraceful performance from manager through to players, the team looked like a bunch of academy rejects. Lamela is so past his sell by, trippier, llorente, both CBs and pretty much every player was piss poor. Out of another cup, spurs you're pathetic #thfc

Daniel Levy single-handedly killing Spurs, fancied them to be in the mix for the league at Christmas, why own a club if you’re not going to invest?

Pochettino has had a hell of a honeymoon period but it seems that the only people that really rate him these days are the media, the Tottenham fans are losing faith with him and rightfully so, his constant excuses every time Tottenham fall short are now starting to wear thin.
There was once a time when Spurs fans mocked Arsenal fans for looking at a top-four spot as some sort of trophy, seems like that is now the policy at White Hart Lane.
