Tottenham have had a miserable outing in the Premier League thus far. After the departure of Mauricio Pochettino, Jose Mourinho was handed the reigns in North London but things have gone from bad to worse in recent weeks. Injuries to star players like Harry Kane, Heung-Min Son and others have seen Tottenham bow out of the FA Cup and Champions League in the last two weeks. It's a tough time to be a Tottenham fan right now, so we take you down memory lane to 2007 when Tottenham goalkeeper Paul Robinson scored the longest freekick in the Premier League.

Speaking after the 3-1 win over Watford, Paul Robinson was quoted saying that "It was a freak goal and there's nobody who knows more about those than me over the last season. People will question him now and it's part and parcel of being a goalkeeper. Criticism can be very difficult, very hard, depending on what level the criticism is and as a goalkeeper, it's about how you react and you have to remain mentally strong. I didn't celebrate the goal out of respect that I have for any goalkeeper. It was fantastic to score a goal, but I can't really pretend that I meant it."
