A sad end to a great season. Only Spurs…
Tottenham were thrashed 5-1 at relegated Newcastle, who scored three of their goals with ten men.
The hosts took a 2-0 lead into the half time break before Erik Lamela pulled a goal back for Spurs fifteen minutes into the second half.
Aleksandar Mitrovic was then sent off, allowing Tottenham a way back in. But Mauricio Pochettino’s side crumbled, conceding three more goals in a humiliating defeat.
Here’s how Twitter reacted to the result.
At least we've gone full Tottenham now and made it funny ????? too silly to even be angry now. Write it all off. Apology required. Sour end.

Forget an open top bus, this Spurs team should be Cersei'd down the High Road after this.

Absolute disgrace today. Praised us when we've been brilliant but the players shld be ashamed of this shit today

Now you can say we bottled it – and you'd be right. It doesn't devalue the work Pochettino has done but what a disappointing end.

Only Spurs can finish 3rd and make it feel like a complete failure.

All we needed was a draw, yet managed to lose 5-1 to a relegated 10 men Newcastle, fucking spursy

Don't really care about Arsenal finishing above us – means more to them, but to bow out a great season like that is embarrassing #thfc

I refuse to join in "shame" talk. Spurs throwing everything into trying to snatch an equaliser when Newcastle were awarded a joke penalty

If you're spending another second of today on Twitter you need sectioning. See you next season, in the Champions League.

A timely reminder of just how crap we can be and how much work there is to be done this summer. Still a fine season, way above expectations

Feel I need to be honest here. That was totally unacceptable. We've done a lot of great things this season but today was shameful.

There'll be countless blogs this week telling you the future's bright; that doesn't mean you're wrong to feel utterly depressed after that.
