'Shocking', 'Horrendous' – Tottenham fans fume with one defender after display v Rochdale
Tottenham fans were not happy with the performance of Toby Alderweireld in the 2-2 FA Cup draw with Rochdale on Sunday afternoon.
The 28-year-old centre-back has only made 17 appearances in all competitions for Tottenham this season after an injury has kept him on the sidelines.
But there are also contract negotiations going on in the background and so far he’s resisted all attempts to sign an extension.
That’s led to rumours that he might be sold in the summer, and he didn’t play well today – although he wasn’t the only one who was poor at the back for Spurs today.
Kieran Trippier was probably the only one in the backline that put in a decent shift in a game where it looked like Spurs simply underestimated their opponents.
However, Tottenham fans saved most of their criticism for Toby Alderweireld.
Here is a selection of the best reactions from annoyed Tottenham fans:
Alderweireld is so off the pace it’s actually quite unbelievable.

Only Lucas looks worthy of a starting place in the league. Everyone else has been horrible. Including Alderweireld and Rose.

Alderweireld has been appalling. What on Earth was he doing for the goal. Was 10 yards behind Foyth.
