    Such a nice guy . Seems like yesterday I was watching him have a stormer against Palermo .

    We could have another Shay Given, Steve Harper on our hands here and he may just be another Toon Legend in the making 🙂 .

    “As long as we … have Remy up front, we can keep on winning.”

    Great defensive performance reminded of the season we came 5th a lot of games we went a goal up and I knew the game would be won no matter what happened Spurs had about 2 or 3 what you would call clear cut chances the rest were all long range efforts we could easily have went in at half time 2 goals up some of our play in that 1st half was fantastic

    Got to remember they spent 100 odd million in the summer we spent 2 million they should beat us no bother but they did not thats why the premier league is the best in the world anyone can win on the day

    I am not the biggest Pardew fan but he has got the tactics against the big teams correct recently if we go gung ho we get caught out and pummelled which happened 1st game of the season against City where we tried to attack them from the off

    What he needs to work on or get some help in coaching is playing the teams we should be beating like Hull , West Ham and Sunderland we should be pressing them from kick off and bombing forward but we go into those games like underdogs this is not acceptable it needs to change as theres no point winning against Chelsea etc if you get humbled at home off Norwich and West Brom ??!

    A word on Mbiwa what a clearance from the goal line and performance he is showing what he is capable of I honestly think if Colo started today we would have lost Colo does not put his body on the line anymore and is too casual in possession Williamson is the best partner for Mbiwa defend 1st leave the fancy stuff to the forwards they are the perfect blend for a centre back partnership

    Arfa also does not graft enough yes he can beat 3 guys but even Shola put a shift in today winning the ball back in crucial areas I would say though against Norwich I would like us to start with the same team but put Arfa as the no 10 behind Remy and see if being benched for a couple of games makes him get the finger out ?

    We are roughly about 4 players away from having a team to get back into europe next season get a direct winger such as Ince , a big strong ball winning Striker like DeJong or Gomis , A beast of a defender like Shawcross or Ludovic Sane and a back up utility guy who can play rightback and a couple of other positions!

    Hopefully results like this vs Chelsea and Tottenham will give us confidence to really impose ourselves on the lower teams. I hate seeing us get worked by Norwich or Hull.

    Any excuse, it’s pathetic lad

    The commentators were saying how Europa league has an effect, mourinho was saying the CL schedule has an effect, the spurs fans were saying it has an effect, but no it’s pardew who’s a tw@ for saying it!

    Sunderland did well today. Man city probably had less clear chances than spurs did today. Both us and them defended very well as when needed the keepers did their job.

    Stuart

    I think spurs had maybe 3/4 chances they should have scored. Krul did well on other saves but were expected sves in my opinion.

    2 teams play the game. No matter how well we do there is nothing we can do if spurs really turn it on which they did in the second half. You can’t stop every attack, spurs just upped it in the second half, not our poor tactics at all. They simply pinned us back.

    Would also like to throw a bone to Sissoko today. He really took charge at plenty occasions, and powered past Vertoghnen on the right wing. Don’t think we would’ve managed this without him.

    Also, I really wish we could use 12 men, so Ben Arfa could have his place behind the attackers. Poor kid, he has so much talent, and so much to bring in a game. He just doesn’t fit in without defensive skills. I’d like to test him instead of Shola next game. Behind Remy, bit to the right, let them have some fun with the defences.

    Really, really happy tonight.

    Agreed dont want to get too overconfident the reason we got beat off Hull is because we started drinking our own bath water after plaudits from the Villa game we did not work hard enough especially Arfa it was like he thought he had won the player of year after one game I think having Gouffran and Sissoko on the wings is the way to go and give Arfa a free role see what he does

    Great post
    And your right we do need to keep this momentum going, Norwich and West Brom have been bogey teams for us over the years so we need to take the same fight and commitment into these fixtures, the international break has actually come at a really bad time for us as we always lose momentum, but hopefully these results have kick started our season!

    I personally don’t think that Europe should be a issue for fitness, do a bit less training. The issue lies with changes to preparation, and then if everyone from manager to papers to fans say you are tired it gives you as a player an excuse to not put in a full shift. Europe does have some impact, whether it’s physical or mental it has some effect.

    Daz

    Some of our players had Europe but the manager hadn’t so wouldn’t have known how best to rotate and adapt match prep. We heard pardew spends 4 days on defense so if a midweek game that will make it difficult to drill the tactics into the players for that week.

    Also our players have limited European experience, they don’t all have it and they don’t have experience together as a team.

    Problem is shola really does relieve the pressure by holding the ball up, just can’t see a place for him other than as a role as an impact sub to run at tired legs

    People need to learn we aren’t a team who can dominate every game. We should do better against the hulls and Sunderlands but spurs are a good side who haven’t lost many.

    Any win is good and performance is a bonus. We need to continue this improvement with our new system and see where it takes us.

    Firstly don`t call me lad i`m 45 yer prick and no its not any excuse.
    I saw a Spurs side today who played some great football second half and bar Krul would have probably won.So no thursday game didn`t really affect them.
    I think 31 shots is pretty good for a team that had so much taken out of them because they played thursday and we had a full week training don`t you

    The really pleasing thing for me is how the forwards are becoming the first line of defence when the opposition defenders have the ball. This is very much the Barcelona way. It was very effective against Chelsea and again today but you do need the right players to do this and in Goofy and Sissoko we have the players together with Remy.

    A special mention about the pass by Cabaye with the outside of his boot. If Remy had scored I’m sure it would have made goal of the season, if not the pass.

    It’s a team game at the end of the day and we done them.

    It’s as simple as that.

    Krul was absolutely outstanding. They were always going to come at us second half and we survived it. That’s all we need to know.

    It’s always been a very tough fixture and im smiling from ear to ear.

    Nothing is going to take that away from me today. Come onnnnnn the Toon.

    Makums have got their win. Unhappy with this.

    I was actually thinking about it some of our players looked a bit tired this particular international break might do us a bit of good because Mbiwa , Willo , Krul , Collo , Anita, Tiote , Gouffran and Arfa will not be playing as their teams have qualified or they do not get a game at international so a wee rest will be good for them

    Cabaye , Sissoko and Remy will probably play but is Debuchy not suspended for the game against Norwich anyway?

    Okay so your a 45 year old who’s childish enough to use any half excuse to have a pop at the manager, makes even sadder to be honest

    Did I say it was a valid excuse? No, I said its pathetic to have a pop at pardew for saying what the spurs fans have been saying after every league game they have played after Europe and what the pundits have been saying

    I’ll live with it now. I just would like to see more technical ability on the wings but at least its working. I have more confidence now that Sissoko has show he can run to the goal line and put a cross in.

    I think it’s a matter of getting our midfield nailed down as well. Anita came on for his quality and passing ability but we sat back and squandered possession. We do it so well vs Chelsea and even City so I would like to see consistency there.

    Mate if Pards spends four days a week training on defence i`m pretty sure they would know what they were doing by now.He`s had over 3 years coaching it and the tactics we play don`t change week in week out.So i doubt they need a full week to prepare the same old same old.

    We’ve played Lpool, Chelsea and Spurs and looked a decent well organised team in all three + we’ve won two and drawn one and that with ten men for half a game.

    When you read the likes of stuart09 ranting on about, no tactics, luck and Pardew is sh1te you have to think – pal, do you actually want us to win a game you sour faced negger?

    If Remy wasn’t playing today we wouldn’t have scored.

    But he was – so we won.

    If Spurs would have converted one of those chances they would have drawn at least.

    But the didn’t – so we won.

    A few great posts from that guardian article from spurs fans, wish our fans could give us this much credit!!

    First up, well done Newcastle. You were a better, more fluid team & your goalkeeper was amazing.
    As for Spurs, we were slow, ponderous, lacking invention & did not play well as a team. Townsend, Eriksson, Sigurdsson & Dembele were poor. Eriksson had a really bad day & should have been off at half time but he is a good player & will have better days. Spurs are playing the way the manager wants them to but it is not the Spurs way. ‘Arry & Jol understood better than this guy what that means but neither of those looked like the MBA type young manager that ENIC wanted.
    The next game away to City is going to be a nightmare. 4-0 at least unless Spurs park the bus with Sandro & Paulinho in the middle. Lennon needs to come in on the right with Lamela on the left. Townsend is too trigger happy like a pinball player. He is no Bale. How Bale must be smiling to himself. Already doing well at RM & badly missed at Spurs. He saved us last season.
    Soldado needs good service & he should have Defoe alongside when we are at home.
    There is no excuse for this manager. He just does not get Spurs. He will be off next season & we will be back to rebuilding. Same old Spurs story.

    It’s always a bugger when a team comes with a strategy. Spurs struggle against teams with strategies. They generally struggle at home against any team that decides to show some belief in itself. When a team doesn’t bow down to our Champ Man value side we can’t wangle a 1-0 win.

    Newcastle didn’t park the bus. We played that ‘we need time to gel’ football we’re becoming famous for in the first half and I’d like to really truly believe that we were unlucky not to score, but luck has already yielded 9 points this season, it was bound to run out at some point and yet again we don’t look like we could hit a monstrous cow’s arse with the world’s largest banjo, let alone score more than 1 goal. Because let’s be honest, if we’d scrambled an undeserved draw there would have been people on here claiming it was a good performance against a resolute team that parked the bus and were lucky to get a point.

    If all of our players are all that classy, then it has to be someone else’s fault that we’re dull, boring, can’t score and are now being exploited. Who could it be, though? Anybody got any ideas? Oh yeah, it’s the crowd’s fault. Perhaps Daniel Levy should sack the crowd and buy a new one in? Then we’ll have no excuses whatsoever.

    Excellent post, both for content and the utterly deserved snark with which it was delivered.

    Where are all the “park the bus apologists” now? Newcastle came out and played and we still looked toothless. What are they doing in training–11 league matches, plus Euro, plus league cup and our midfield still look like strangers to each other.

    I think ‘smash & grab’ is doing Newcastle a disservice. Up to scoring, they were totally bossing the game and creating all the chances. After scoring they seemed to retreat into a typical away performance mindset, and sat back absorbing pressure.

    I fancy they would have contributed far more in an attacking sense had they not scored, but they played the probabilities based on Tottenham’s relatively poor attacking threat; certainly in relation to finishing.

    some wins are lucky or sometimes we don’t play well, but we defended with our lives and got it. doesn’t matter how we played if we won.
    as for pardew, we’ve all come to terms with his deficiencies, if he was gonna go he should’ve went last season but he didn’t. fact is, the alternative is some bog standard manager or kinnear and now and then pardew can pleasantly surprise us with big results.
