Just a few days after a dispiriting loss against Barcelona in the Champions League, Mauricio Pochettino’s underperforming Tottenham were greeted to quite a few empty seats during their game against Cardiff City at Wembley on a rainy Saturday.

Perhaps the inclement weather coupled with Spurs’ inferior displays in the past few games contributed to the fans of the North London club shunning what would have been a rain-soaked journey all the way to England’s national football stadium.

But supporters were left disappointed by their manager’s shock at the low turnout even though they had some valid reasons. Pochettino was caught on cameras looking surprised by the lack of attendance and was seen pointing to an almost empty upper tier just before the kick-off.

Nevertheless, the decision to stay away was also vindicated as Spurs looked a pale shadow of the attacking, high pressing side they’ve become under Pochettino over the years and struggled to a 1-0 win against a side that lies at the bottom of the table.

Check out some of the comments below –

  1. I was one of the supporters that endured the rain and below par performance at Wembley against a vastly inferior Cardiff. I support spurs through thick and thin and go to most games in every season, but being a pensioner and a one hotspur plus member cannot afford a season ticket so I buy my tickets week by week . Will I be able to get a seat at the opening game, some chance, while I have sympathy for those fans who did not attend will Tottenham hold enough tickets back for members like myself. A spurs supporter since 1954 when my grandfather
    ( a spurs player in 1908-1911) took me to my first game.

  2. Hello Thomas,

    After countless emails and fob offs from THFC ticket office I finally was able to decipher the ticket allocation breakdown at the new stadium.

    42,000 season tickets.
    3,000 away fans.
    10,000 corporate!!!
    7,000 only for members!!!!!!!

    This is the direction the club wants to go, clearly 10,000 corporate and 7,000 for members shows that money is more important than fan loyalty to The Board.
