‘Tottenham are losing so bad they triggered an alert’: Fans use the 3pm nationwide alarm to mock Spurs after their 6-1 humbling by Newcastle
- Tottenham were hammered 6-1 by Newcastle at St James’s park on Sunday
- The government’s new emergency alert system test was launched at half-time
- Football fans wasted no time in bombarding Spurs with memes on social media
Tottenham have found themselves on the receiving end of criticism as fans used the government’s new emergency alert system test to mock the north London club during their 6-1 defeat by Newcastle.
The alarm, which sounded at shortly before 3pm, was accompanied by a message which popped up on mobile phones explaining that the siren was a test and people did not need to take any action.
It came during the half-time break when Newcastle lead Tottenham 5-0 after scoring all five goals within the opening 21 minutes to stun the visitors.
At the expense of Tottenham, football fans on social media were quick to bombard the club with jokes and memes.
One fan tweeted: ‘Tottenham are losing so bad they triggered an emergency alert’.

‘Government Emergency Alert at 3pm not to be confused with the emergency situation for Tottenham’, said an Arsenal fan.
A fourth supporter got more creative, writing: ‘Did everyone get the Government Emergency Alert today? I got this one. Even the government know.’, alongside a photo of an alert which states, ‘Spurs are s**t’.
The Magpies took the lead after 62 seconds when Jacob Murphy turned home a strike on the rebound from Hugo Lloris’ save.

Tottenham managed to get one back through Harry Kane’s solo strike after the break but Callum Wilson came off the bench to add a sixth goal for the hosts after 67 minutes.
