'Never want to see you play for us again' - Tottenham fans still fuming after 2-2 FA Cup draw

Tottenham supporters have continued to bemoan their side’s inability to beat Rochdale in the fifth round of the FA Cup on Sunday and are still Tweeting their frustrations.
And one player, in particular, seems to be on the receiving end of the fans frustrations following his display against the League One minnows.
Spanish striker Fernando Llorente is persistently being lambasted by his own supporters almost 24 hours after the 2-2 draw.
It was a disappointing performance all-round from a much-changed Spurs side who only days earlier had gotten the better of Juventus in Turin.
Spotland should have been no comparison for high-flying Tottenham but none the less, Mauricio Pochettino’s side looked completely out of their comfort zone at the Lancashire outfit.
Rochdale took the lead just before half-time through Ian Henderson who capitalised on a mix-up in the centre of the park.
And then, just when it looked as though Harry Kane had stolen the game from the Dale, Steve Davies scored a dramatic stoppage-time equaliser to give the home side a second bite at the cherry and a trip to Wembley.
But supporters of the Lilywhites continued to point the finger at Llorente, who had a fantastic chance to give his side the lead in the first half after Moussa Sissoko squared the ball to him in the box – the Spaniard could only fire wide though.
One fan begged the 32-year-old to, ‘retire from football,’ and another added more plainly, ‘You are awful.
Here are some reactions from Twitter as supporters reflected on the result:
