Tottenham fans joke it's a 'blessing' Premier Sports cuts out for SEVEN minutes during dire Plovdiv clash

TOTTENHAM fans joked it was a "blessing" that coverage cut out for at least SEVEN minutes during their dire clash against Plovdiv – and even missed their opponents scoring a goal.

Premier Sports were streaming the action from Bulgaria, where Jose Mourinho's side were beginning their Europa League journey.

But supporters said it was a relief cameras had stopped with the score 0-0 and a "back soon" message displayed on screen before half-time.

One said: "Premier Sports saving us the bother of watching Spurs at Lokomotiv Plovdiv by cutting out after 35mins… not missing much I’m sure…"

Another replied to a tweet showing the blank screen with the tweet: "That’s a blessing to be honest. Same s***. Even against f***ing Plovdiv."

A fellow user posted: "Pay @PremierSportsTV to watch the absolutely dire Plovdiv v Spurs game ending up watching a far more entertaining AC Milan documentary."

Another tweeted: "BREAKING: We now know the reason for the "back soon" message during the Premier Sports game between Tottenham and Lokomotiv Plovdiv.

"Sissoko had a missed shot and unfortunately, it seems to have taken out the satellite. Glad we cleared that one up."

The coverage did eventually start up again for the second half – only for it to crash again in the 68th minute, causing viewers to miss Plovdiv's opener 71st-minute opener.

Premier Sports were also forced to apologise after their stream missed Jermaine Defoe's goal for Rangers against Lincoln Red Imps.

Tottenham will hope they are unmissable once Gareth Bale returns after seven years.

Spurs and Real Madrid are believed to be in total agreement over the Welsh wizard's season-long loan move.

Bale said goodbye to his Real team-mates this morning ahead of flying to London where Spurs hope to announce the deal on Friday.
