Spurs have rarely been out of the news recently with Alan Sugar and George Graham leaving the club and now Glenn Hoddle set to take over as manager, ahead of the two derby matches with Arsenal.
There has been much talk in recent years that, with football clubs enjoying an influx of cash from a variety of sources, fan power is dwindling but Carr feels the events at White Hart Lane show this is not the case.
"One thing that comes out of this for me is how powerful a set of fans can be," Carr said.
"They wanted the chairman out and they wanted George out and now they've achieved both aims.
"People talk about player power but I think that this was a strong example of fan power.
"They are totally entitled to their opinions because they pay good money every week, and what they wanted was a return to the tradition of the club.
"Now it seems they might get what they want, and, more importantly, who they want and it's up to all of us to give the new manager time.
"I think in the end it was inevitable Glenn was going to get the job but the speed at which it is happening is astonishing.
"That's football though, things like this happen overnight. I know the public think we players have special insight, an insiders view, but in truth, we don't know much more than they do."
