'Painful', 'Soul crushing' - Tottenham fans react to one aspect of win v Rochdale

Tottenham put themselves into the quarter-finals of the FA Cup with a 6-1 defeat of Rochdale on Wednesday evening – a result which made them joint-favourites for the competition along with Manchester United.

A hattrick from Fernando Llorente, a brace from Son Heung-Min and a first from Kyle Walker-Peters sent the League One team crashing out of the cup.

The result aside, it wasn’t enough to see supporters of the club happy with the use of the Video Assistant Referee system that was again in use on the night and again managed to create discord on the terraces as players and fans at Wembley were left wondering what was going on.

Spurs had two goals disallowed after referee Paul Tierney consulted VAR and decided that the first ought to be ruled out due to a foul on Harrison McGahey by Fernando Llorente, and it was a similar result for the second too.

But it was the way and the reasons for which VAR was being used that caused most disgruntlement amongst the Tottenham faithful who felt that the spectacle was turning into a farce as a result.

Here is a selection of what Spurs supporters were saying about the use of the system:
