Things are not going well for Tottenham on the pitch, to the point many Spurs fans are calling for drastic changes in the team. Meanwhile, the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium pitch is undergoing some pretty awesome transformations of its own.
A grisly Hugo Lloris injury resulted in the first goal allowed as Tottenham suffered a 3-0 defeat to Brighton & Hove Albion on Saturday, takings its tally to 10 goals conceded this week after a midweek 7-2 loss to Bayern Munich.
Neal Maupay mopped up on a Lloris error in the third minute — the error that cause the Spurs keeper’s injury — and Aaron Connolly added a brace as Brighton won for the second time this season.
We’ve all been there at one point or another.
You get all excited about a big game, join a bunch of like-minded fans and get ready for what you hope is an event to remember.
Then your team gets absolutely hammered and you respond by getting absolutely hammered.

Lewandowski started and finished a wild play in the 45th minute, eventually punishing Tottenham for failing to clear the ball with a smashing effort from the edge of the 18.
Bulgarian striker Dimitar Berbatov has officially announced his retirement at 38 years old with a video and written statement, which he posted on Instagram.
