    Great 1st Half performance by us. In the end up just beaten by 1 man.

    Not bad overall.

    Shouldn’t get above our station – next few matches are more realistic and winnable.

    Heads up chaps & HWTL!!!!!!!!!!!

    Goffy was great the shin just looked a but bloody, hopefully the bones just a bit bruised and not fractured. Would explain the pain and he wouldnt be out for half as long.

    CBs were terrible today. Yanga-Mbiwa and Mbabu has to be the central defense partnership next week.

    Enter the pardew bashers.

    Everytime we lose it’s his fault of course. Everytime we win it’s the players.

    Idiots.

    Tim Krul – 6: Put in some good saves at the end to redeem himself but his kicking game has been atrocious recently. Needs to be looked at and dealt with as soon as possible because it piles the pressure on an already shaky defence.
    Mathieu Debuchy – 5: Made good runs and linked up well with Sissoko and Gutierrez, however very susceptible at the back. Needs to adapt and adapt quickly.
    Steven Taylor – 7: Our best defender. Put his body on the line at least a couple of times, miscommunication with Coloccini led to the mishap but only partly to blame. Otherwise had a decent game.
    Fabricio Coloccini (c) – 4: As someone rightly pointed out, he really struggles with the pace of the game, moreso than even Taylor and on a par with Williamson who was often the one most heavily criticised whenever we played. Hard to see Pardew dropping him but I would try MYM here. Colo is nothing like the player of last season. Had no international games, so no excuses whatsoever for “tiredness”.
    Davide Santon – 5: Perhaps fatigue did play a part in his performance, don’t like to ever use it as a reason when letting a player off but Santon looked well off the pace today. Allowed Lennon to ghost past him time and time again. Few marauding runs but offered very little compared to Chelsea last week.
    James Perch – 6: A decent shift once again, nothing spectacular. He had a few good interceptions and tackles but overall I felt at times he went messing, and much like Santon, allowed Tottenham’s midfield to simply ghost past him. Perhaps despite my initial apprehension we could have done better with Tiote in the side.
    Yohan Cabaye – 7: Another good performance by Yo, drifted off towards the end of the game as all the players seemed to, but was instrumental in most attacks and looks like he has improved set-plays, despite no-one showing up for them as of yet.
    Yoan Gouffran – 8: MOTM for the goal and overall work-rate. We seemed a bit shaken after he went off with that injury. Showed finesse on the ball which was lacking in other areas of the pitch. Can only hope he’s not too badly hurt as he seems very promising.
    Moussa Sissoko – 6: Brought back down to earth with this game, and the expectations placed upon him maybe were too much to handle. Make no bones about it, he set up the goal… but other than that he was pretty unaffective. Tottenham did well to close him down, but far too many misplaced passes. Perhaps fatigue due to competitive game against Germany in the week.
    Jonas Gutierrez – 6: Combined with Sissoko for our goal and incorporated more of the play from the good game he had at Chelsea, but once again gave too much away and didn’t press hard enough. A bit like Sissoko, the game seemed to pass him by for long periods.
    Papiss Cisse – 4: Desperately needs a kick up the backside. He’s not delivering anything at the moment, despite being the main man – was once again offside far too many times and missed a good chance. I think if he doesn’t start to improve soon, we might have to revert to Shola. Would have probably buried the chances he has squandered recently anyway.

    Subs:
    Marveaux – 5.
    Tiote – 7.
    Shola Ameobi – 6.

    Chin up lads, we faced a very good player today in Gareth Bale. I could have seen us drawing it if our defence had been more solidly organised, but take nothing away from the Spuds and their one-man team.

    We’ll be back and ready to fight Southampton, I’m sure of it.

    😉

    Yeah the CB were terrible last two games before this one too. Today against a top 3 player in the world right now.

    Are you on something?

    Only saw the second half and overall Spurs were running the show. Expected at home and nothing to be ashamed about. I noticed a lot of the time that when we went on a run, we tried to cut in or stop play a bit and constantly lost the ball. Can’t do that with Spurs as they have speed to burn and if they catch you it’s deadly.

    Anyway, 6 points from 9 is a decent start. We have EL to turn our attention to now.

    Not too down after todays result.

    In the position we’ve put ourselves in, every point we can gain is paramount. I certainly did not expect anything out of this game, but the manner in which it panned out suggests that we certainly should have come away with at least a point.

    I recommend you watch the first half, we were very very good and in control for large periods. Goofy injury changed the momentum.

    Could have been worst lads could of been hammered 5-0 like last season. Not disappointed about the result today as wasn’t expecting anything anyway as Tottenham are a good side. 6 from 9 is better than a kick in teeth

    A bit worrying for an injury to do that though, our team spirit can’t be so strong if all it takes is one injury to derail our game.

    @ WHL we played well and nullified Spurs. Sadly the injury to Gouffran was instrumental. I hope the lad is OK, but I am very worried that it could be a break /fracture. I am hoping the splint was just used as a precaution and that the lad is going to be okay. We lost this match sadly due to miscommunication between Colo and Saylor. Its regrettable but we did give a good account of ourselves.
    Hoping that results go back our way or we’re straight back into the fight! I thought we deserved a point and had we had HBA possibly more. Bale was the only outstanding player for Spurs along with Lewis Holtby. Gutted we’ve lost but as long as Gouffran is OK I’ll move on. HWTL

    It’s easy to blame a defense that were up against bale and lennon all afternoon. They did very well, but were undone in the end by world class talent. Sometimes it happens.

    Jesus just trawled through a few of the comments on the match thread…some of the knuckle draggers that post (apparently only on match days?) are outrageous. Don’t know whether to laugh or cry.

    Gutted we didn’t win as I had us down for a hard-fought draw but Garry Bale is the best player in the league and scored two good goals. Can’t fault the team first half I felt we were the better side, Goofy’s injury seemed to ruffle our feathers and we never really looked like coming back after that, save the odd half chance. To me Sissoko looked absolutely knackered most of the game, the midweek international obviously has had an effect on us.
    Taylor MOTM for me. Marveaux in for Goofy next week and let’s get back to winning ways. HWTL

    PS What was Pardew’s beef at the final whistle? He looked annoyed about something, hope it was justified as let’s face it he’s not the classiest customer is he? AVB had to fight for his handshake…

    Did we have a man, man marking Bale? I would imagine most teams stick a man on him. Not sure if we did.

    We always look vulnerable to pace in the middle and getting caught one on one at the back. Don’t know why we don’t play a sweeper, especially now we have M’Biwa.

    Sissoko looked shattered. Maybe should have let Anita on for the last 20 – 30 mins.

    Goofy is a revelation. Works so hard and has great movement and the skills it seems. Hope he’s ok.

    If we had HBA i would say we would have won as we had many chances down the right but guti couldnt deliver and even debuchy failed to whip good balls in.

    I think Mbiwa will bring the needed pace next season, probs as colo’s replacement, but colo is so good on the ball so hope we don’t lose that.

    It’s fairly obvious without Bale in the side we would have drawn the game, but this is the problem. Bale is a very good player and our defence cannot cope with pace. Let’s not pretend Spurs played great – they were mediocre, but they have someone like we do when Ben Arfa is fit who can win them the game.

    I think if Arfa had been in that side ahead of Marveaux we would have drawn at least.

    Thought we deserved a draw today. There’s not much difference between the two teams. Both teams need 2/3 new strikers each. We were short up front today. Ameobi concedes too many silly free-kicks. Perch did quite well today. Prefer him to Tiote at the moment. I think we need to stick Anita in the team. Mbiwa deserves to replace Coloccini for the next game. Colo got caught out too much today and cost us a point.

    Jamie redknapp you Pr**k Kyle walker also knew exactly what he was doing and trying to blame goofy for his own injury what a joke just went down in my estimation. 1-0 Swansea yesa

    as most would agree we have been improving in performance and finally learning how to press on the opposition but i think our next game Goofy should be our lone striker untill cisse stops smiling and starts to focus on scoring like he did last season

    Marveaux is better on the ball but Gouffran seems to track back well. Marveaux is definitely best through the middle. Hopefully Gouffran isn’t badly injured as he looks a good signing.

    Spuggy…..I don’t think we played badly really, just that Spurs had the upperhand. Glad we gave them a good go in the first half.

    What did impress me with Spurs tbh, is the speed they kept up for the 90 minutes. No wonder they generally score in the 2nd half.

    Don’t usually post but reading some of the utter shit posted on this blog , people saying Colo is shit need to f* off and watch his last 3 seasons. Replacing him with m’biwa who i bet no one has actually seen play is stupid. Most of you think its football manager of something

    I’m sure the majority of the posters on this blog have no life what so ever, they sit all day posting utter bullshit. Fans like this give Newcastle a bad name. “FICKLE AS F**K” And this is not aimed at the poster who make educated contributions to the blog, and consistently make good points about the club and players.

    Cisse has no positional sense whatsover. Twice during the game we had counter-attacking opportunities, and twice he ran in the way of the player running with the ball, rather than peeling wide and providing an option.

    Cisse had positional sense when we scored and he took two defenders with him and when he headed the ball just past the post. Just not going in for him atm and he’s lacking confidence.
