Tottenham fans react on Twitter to Southampton win: "Finally some character!"

Tottenham WHL

Spurs put a terrible fortnight behind them to record a crucial 3-2 win over Southampton at White Hart Lane this afternoon.

After disappointments against London rivals Chelsea and Arsenal in the Premier League and their Europa League exit at the hands of Portuguese side Benfica, the Spurs faithful have been increasingly disgruntled with Tim Sherwood in charge - and a win over Southampton today was vital.

But their day got off to a terrible start, as more comical defending saw Southampton take a 2-0 first half lead through Jay Rodriguez and Adam Lallana, though Danish playmaker Christian Eriksen took over the game to hit a brace, before Gylfi Sigurdsson struck home from long range in the dying embers of the game.

Whilst a top four finish is still looking incredibly unlikely, Spurs fans will be delighted to have bagged a win after a difficult couple of weeks. Supporters were full of praise for two-goal hero Eriksen and recently under-fire striker Roberto Soldado, as well as manager Sherwood - though some believe the game was simply papering over the cracks. 

Here are some of the reactions from Spurs fans on Twitter to today's dramatic win.
