Lord Sugar may not be the chairman of Tottenham Hotspur anymore, but the English entrepreneur still follows the fortunes of the team closely.
The 67-year-old is often found airing his opinion on social networking site Twitter when Spurs are playing, and he was doing the same on Sunday during the League Cup final.
Tottenham took on Premier League rivals Chelsea at London’s Wembley Stadium, looking to win their first trophy since 2008.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side started the clash well and were the better team in the opening 15 minutes, during which time Denmark international attacking midfielder Christian Eriksen hit the Chelsea crossbar with a free kick.
However, Jose Mourinho's side gradually started to come into the match and took the lead on the stroke of half time when John Terry slammed the ball home from close range.
An own goal from Kyle Walker in the 56th minute pretty much ended the game as a contest, as Chelsea went on to win the final 2-0.
Tottenham have shown time and time again this season that they can stage comebacks and score late goals, but against Chelsea they could not do so.
During the final minutes of the game, Lord Sugar posted the following message on Twitter which pretty much summed up what all Spurs would have been thinking at the time.
9 mins to go slim chance of a late comeback we seem to have had it . Shame— Lord Sugar (@Lord_Sugar) March 1, 2015
On the balance of play, Chelsea were the better team and deserved to win, but Tottenham should be given credit for the way they started the encounter.
If Spurs had been more clinical and had been able to score the opening goal, then perhaps they could have gone on to win the League Cup final.
As it so happened, former England international defender Terry’s goal just before half time changed the game.
Tottenham ended up with 63% of the possession, 13 shots of which just two were on target, and six corners. And no goals.
