On Tuesday, Tottenham Hotspur announced that its players would repay fans who bought tickets for their 6-1 loss to Newcastle United at St James’ Park over the weekend.
The players apologized for their performance and pledged to push for a top-four finish in the Premier League’s last six games.
On Monday, Spurs fired interim coach Cristian Stellini and replaced him with Ryan Mason.
“As a squad, we understand your dissatisfaction and rage. It was inadequate. Spurs’ players responded, “We know words aren’t enough but believe us, a defeat like this hurts.”
We appreciate your support, home and away, and would like to compensate fans for St James’ Park match tickets.
“We know this does not change what happened on Sunday and we will give everything to put things right against Manchester United on Thursday evening when, again, your support will mean everything to us.”
Spurs sit fifth with 53 points, six behind fourth-placed United but having played two more games.
Spurs created a Fan Advisory Board (FAB) to inform fans of club decisions.
One FAB representative will attend the club’s board meetings four times a year, and working groups will address supporter issues.
Last June, English top-flight clubs decided to introduce Fan Advisory Boards as part of a “collective offer for fans” plan.
“The FAB’s remit will cover a wide range of off-field topics such as the club’s strategic vision and objectives, off-pitch performance updates, priorities and plans, operational matchday issues… stadium issues and plans,” Spurs said.
“July should see the first FAB meeting.”
