Tottenham Hotspur fans protest against Joe Lewis and Daniel Levy during Spurs’ 2-1 win over Aston Villa

According to Daily Mail, several Tottenham Hotspur fans showed up with banners protesting against Daniel Levy and club owner Joe Lewis before the game against Aston Villa.

The mood before the game was grim after Spurs suffered three Premier League defeats in a row. Fans were enraged after an embarrassing 3-1 loss to Arsenal in the North London derby and the frustration did not die out despite a win over NS Mura in the Conference League.

The report mentions that there were banners of ‘Levy Out’ and ‘Lewis Out’ during the game as well, as Spurs edged out Aston Villa in an exciting 2-1 win. The game was anything but smooth sailing for the hosts.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg opened the scoring in the 27th minute before Ollie Watkins equalized some 23 minutes from time. Heung-min Son’s inspirational run down the left flank forced an own goal from Matt Target four minutes later.

But the win was anything but convincing. Nevertheless, Nuno Espirito Santo’s team managed to cross the finish line without any mishaps and held onto the 2-1 scoreline to hand them crucial three points on the day.

Spurs were flying under Mauricio Pochettino and had instances where they looked like title contenders while also making the UEFA Champions League final in 2019. The Argentine’s departure was a shock but Jose Mourinho’s appointment was supposed to take Spurs to the next level.

After a lukewarm spell with the former Real Madrid and Manchester United manager, Spurs decided to part ways with him in April just days before a crucial League Cup final. Since then, the downward spiral has continued.

The protest from the fans wasn’t just related to the result on the day or the loss against Arsenal last week, but is focused more on their concerns regarding the club’s ownership and decision-making process inside the boardroom.

There isn’t much that can be done right now considering a shake-up of the board and managerial set-up may plummet the club into further insecurity and instability, but hopefully, the protests increase the transparency and accountability in the club’s decision-making process to make it align with the vision that the fans have for the club going forward.
