Robinson takes blame for Leeds United, Tottenham Hotspur losses in amusing tweet

Twitter has given footballers and ex-professionals a platform to interact more closely with supporters.

Former Leeds United and Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Paul Robinson is the latest figure from the football world to join the social networking website.

The 38-year-old let his followers know that he was keeping track of his former clubs during Wednesday night’s action.

Tottenham were playing in their biggest game of the season as they took on Juventus in the second leg of their last-16 tie in the Champions League.

Leeds also faced a big task as they played Championship leaders Wolverhampton Wanderers at Elland Road.

Unfortunately there was disappointment on all fronts as Spurs were knocked out by the Italian giants 4-3 on aggregate, while Leeds’ playoff hopes took a major hit as they suffered a 3-0 loss at the hands of Wolves.

On Twitter, plenty of Tottenham fans took aim at their players, while Leeds supporters also expressed their unhappiness on social media.

For a moment, though, both sets of fans may have broken into wry smiles when they saw Robinson’s post.

The goalkeeper jokingly suggested that he was to blame for the defeats.
