Tottenham Hotspur fans will be hoping to wake up this morning and discover that it is still Sunday, that it was all a dream yesterday and that Liverpool await at White Hart Lane.
Alas, sorry guys and girls, in fact it is Monday, you have work and yes Spurs were trounced 5-0 by Liverpool at The Lane yesterday evening.
In what was a truly abysmal performance from most in the Tottenham team they did not even manage a single shot on target - and Andre Villas-Boas again finds himself on the brink of the sack according to several churning rumour mills.
It is hard to pick out any player in particular for criticism in the game - the truth is nobody in the Spurs team really covered themselves in glory.
But Etienne Capoue was one player who really stood out for his poor performance.
With a central-defensive injury crisis at the club Capoue, who has previously played at the heart of the back line while with Toulouse, has stepped in to the role.
Against Sunderland in their last Premier League outing he looked pretty solid - and most fans agreed he looked the part.
At 6ft 2ins he is built for the role and against Sunderland he did look good - but Luis Suarez doesn’t play for Sunderland.
The Uruguayan had an absolute field day against the French international - running him and Michael Dawson around the pitch in a rampant display of attacking verve.
Considering Capoue had mentioned he rejected Liverpool in the past - the Reds fans are likely unforgiving in their assessment of his display.
Capoue has never had to play at the heart of defence against a player with the quality Suarez possesses and it showed with his clumsy display allowing Suarez to run him ragged.
Capoue was not alone today. Dawson was terrible, Dembele and Paulinho non-existent while Naughton and Sandro were clearly not fit.
But a lot of the stick has fallen on Capoue over Twitter, so let’s take a look at some of it…
Dawson and Capoue were preposterous. The rest of the team as well. AVB on the brink of being sacked, again.— qaedi. (@muhamadqaedi) December 16, 2013
Be as well putting Soldado at centre back than Capoue.— Sebo (@Seb0L) December 15, 2013
Michael Dawson and Capoue...dear oh dear— Donnay (@Donnay97) December 15, 2013
Lot blaming Dawson seem to miss pedestrian capoue ..he was like a little boy lost— Jason (@mcr_thfc) December 15, 2013
It's unfair on Capoue to have him as the problem,he's a mid playing at CB— JFT96 (@smurphy2022) December 15, 2013
I'm hoping when they were scouting Capoue that it was in central midfield . Giving him an impossible task with that high line etc— Gary (@bigraceking) December 15, 2013
Capoue is woeful— #URSports (@sugarcraig) December 15, 2013
Considering Capoue showed possibly the most promise at the start of the season, shame that he's now coping flak for not playing well as a cb— Garry Hart (@Gazmond) December 15, 2013
Capoue is great lulllll— Nagle (@NagleLondon) December 15, 2013
Did Tottenham really pay £9 Mill for Capoue ?— Stooshe (@SYCLAMalinMUFC) December 15, 2013
MOTD analysis v.poor imo. Ignored Sandro dropping in, no mention Capoue is mid & having one less player didn't affect game?!— Dan Goodyer (@DanGoodyer) December 15, 2013
Why slate Capoue? He's playing out of position, he's a central midfielder... Slate Dawson a experienced CB.— George McSomething (@GM32_) December 15, 2013
