Will Newcastle Have Big Let Down Against Spurs On Sunday?


This has been a good week so far for Newcastle United fans, and could get even better if we can get our four players who have been offered new contracts – Michael Owen, Shola Ameobi, Nicky Butt and Steve Harper – to sign their new contracts before Sunday.

joe-kinnear-new

Joe Kinnear – must have players mentally ready for Sunday

If that happens there should be a decent crowd at St. James’ Park on Sunday afternoon for the Spurs game, and the anticipation and expectations will be high following last week’s excellent performance at Portsmouth, in what was our biggest win of the season, and one of our best performances.

History lesson and question    –    What usually happens when Newcastle United are in these situations?

The team has a huge let down, and fans again become disenchanted after thinking we may just have more than a decent team this season.

That’s been what Newcastle have done for many a season, and we are probably one of the most inconsistent teams in the league, good one week and poor the next.  But of course the good teams don’t have let-downs, or certainly not too many in a season, and that’s why they accumulate so many points in the league.

Spurs are a much improved team under Harry Redknapp, who may well be the best English manager right now, and they reached the last 32 of the UEFA Cup last night, by drawing 2-2 with Spartak Moscow at White Hart Lane.

They qualified for the UEFA Cup by winning the Carling Cup last season, and last night they came back well from two goals down, to get the draw they needed to go through.

Spurs are very much like Newcastle right now, in that they have good players, are a big club, but have underperformed, at least until Harry Redknapp took over.

It’s the same at Newcastle but our players are now playing much better under Joe Kinnear. The only difference with the clubs is that Spurs have actually won trophies over the last 40 years, like the Carling Cup this year.     😀

But things may be being set up for a big let-down on Sunday, unless Joe can get the lads to forget all about last Sunday, not think they are a good team, and go out and do the business on Sunday afternoon.

We need all 3 points desperately, to give our great fans a happy Xmas, after all the shenanigans that have gone on at the club since August.

If Joe can do that, and overcome the weakness the Newcastle team has had for many a season, he may just be onto something big at Newcastle – but results on the pitch are everything in the game of football – we all know that.

We’ll only be happy with a good performance and all 3 points on Sunday afternoon, and we can certainly do that, if we can play at our very best, like we did last week in the second half.

What do you think?

Comments welcome, but please keep them decent and be respectful of other readers’ opinions – you can disagree without being disagreeable – many thanks.

    3 points is a must really and now is a good time to start pushing away from the teams below us.

    If we defend like we did against pompey we should have no problems.

    3-1, as per usual. Martins to score first if he plays. If not, Owen.

    Not gunna be too cocky about this one, granted our record against the spuds is good, but I can see us getting a draw if I’m honest.

    On a slightly different note, has anyone heard any rumours about Given not being fit, or having some family trouble? Just I flew back from Belfast last night, and he was on my flight…bit strange to be taking time away from training when we’ve got a big game on the weekend…what dya reckon?

    AO I commented on your poem…generally like all your comments it didn’t even raise an eyebrow…I think the word irrelevant springs to mind.

    I am not being funny but I really pity you..I try to think why you waste your time on here and I just think it is very sad.

    sirjasontoon- your just bitter because it was better than your effort. I might be wasting my time on here as i could be the next Gary Barlow.

    I hope all your players are fit as i dont want any excuses if you lose. I think it might be a draw and will have a tenner on half time and full time draws. I really cant see us losing even with all our injuries but its a squad game so i will have no excuse if the unthinkable happens.

    I’m ganning for the toon – yee have to against the sorry spuds eh. We need a performance though to beat any Redknapp side and to hopefully banish the memory of that miserable cup night earlier this season at sjp… fingers x’d on martins… if not 2-1 Owen and Zog.

    On a different subject – Have yees heard of this new personalised music store? Pretty cool site… my mate’s mate runs it and my mate reckons he’s a toon supporter – we should get him to dae a Gazza classic for the toon mebbes?

    AO – To your post on another page… No I have plenty of common sense, shame you don’t you keep coming on a Newcastle blog when you are a pathetic Spurs fan! Read back through the post’s I have said nothing racist at all your just griping on to anything you can to slag people off. Personally you make me sick, you’re clearly just an unemployed bum with nothing better to do. Here’s a link for you scumbag…

    dantoon- you made racist comments and tried to attribute them to one of our players. You are an ignorant racist. Your stupidity in trying to wriggle out of it is amusing. Not so funny now is it? Now that someone has pulled you up on it.
    I would expect more from someone who apparently is as clever as you than just saying go die.

    AO – is it just me, or did you actually say something non-peurile and worth reading in the 2nd part of post 13?? More of that, please and less of the other tosh. I really don’t mind a bit of wumming, but the ‘who has the smallest willie’ stuff (not just from you) is just annoying.

    Go and play with your laughing, inflatable, Harry Redknap dolls.

    Your team will be thrashed on Sunday and you will still have a tiny pecker and a plastic girlfriend.

    Get over it sunshine 😉

    whumpie- i dont start the name calling and i havent mentioned anyones pecker. I am quite happy to talk football but i feel the need to pull people up when they are being racist(dantoon) or idiots(sirjason).

    Back to football.

    Do you think Allardyce will come in for any of your players?

    AO, we’re not falling for that. You’re on every thread wumming your butt off every time. Look at your only contribution to the threat about the Spartans’ appearance at SJP on Saturday http://www.newsnow.co.uk/A/318224113?-19428): “spurs suck. who agrees with me?”

    So don’t give me that crud about it being others who kick it off.
