Tottenham 0 Newcastle 1 – Full Match Report


Here are the main events of the game at White Hart Lane this afternoon as we saw it, and it turned out to be a second successive win against one of the top six sides in England.

Soccer - Barclays Premier League - Tottenham Hotspur v Newcastle United - White Hart Lane

Loic Remy acknowledging fans after scoring today

Newcastle kicked off in their Brazilian strip, which they were wearing for the first time.

Newcastle got off to a good start and looked alert as the game got under way, and after 9 minutes Soldado had a decent chance from an Ericsson corner but headed over the bar.

And then just a couple of minutes later Yohan Cabaye put Loic Remy through with a great ball, and Loic was through in the inside left position, but a Tottenham player whipped the ball from his feet before he could shoot.

And then a shot from Cabaye was going in on the right hand side and Friedel could only parry the ball, and Cabaye following up smashed the ball against Friedel for a corner.

After 12 minutes Newcastle were ahead, and it was a terrific through ball from Yoan Gouffran, after he dispossessed a Tottenham player,  that found Remy clean through, and he sidestepped Friedel as the goalkeeper came out, and then put the ball in the net with his left foot – a superb goal form Remy, and his seventh of the season for Newcastle.

After 28 minutes Vertonghen from a free kick headed just wide, and then after 30 minutes a magnificent save from Tm Krul kept Newcastle ahead.

It was a Delgado header that had Krul diving to his right, and just managed to get to the ball and flip it away for a corner – a truly great save from the Newcastle goalkeeper.

And then a swerving shot from Eriksen was well stopped by Krul, who was having a good game in the Newcastle goal.

On 39 minutes Shola Ameobi had the ball in the net but he was a yard offside.

Half time came after three minutes of added time, with Newcastle still 1-0 up and they were giving a good account of themselves, in what was a close game.

There were no changes at the break, and after 50 minutes Tim Krul made a fine save from Eriksen,  as the goalkeeper saved with his trailing leg, from a point blank shot by the Dutchman

And then after 53 minutes a free kick by Gylfi Sigurdsson  was deflected by a Newcastle player, and Tim Krul managed to change direction and block the shot with his hand, and with three Tottenham players around him Yanga-Mbiwa somehow managed to hook the ball off the line for a corner – an amazing escape for Newcastle.

After 57 minutes Anita came on for Shola Ameobi.

And then on 64 minutes a Townsend shot was pushed up in the air by Krul, and Delgado headed the ball for goal, but it was safely collected by the Newcastle goalkeeper.

On 71 minutes as Tottenham kept up their onslaught as a Townsend shot was pushed away by Krul diving low to his left.

And then four minutes later Alan Pardew made his second substitution as Papiss Cisse came on for Loic Remy, who now has seven league goals in as many appearances.

On 82 minutes if was the Brazilian Paulinho who shot from 12 yards out straight at goal but it was Krul again who saved with his legs.

Newcastle were hanging on as Tottenham continued to waste the chances they were carving out.

On 82 minutes Tottenham center-back got his head to the ball and it came thudding off the cross-bar as Tottenham kept coming at Newcastle.

On 85 minutes Pardew made his last change and Gabby Obertan came on for Yoan Gouffran, who had another strong game for Newcastle.

With two minutes to go Tottenham players appealed for a hand ball in the penalty area, as Mathieu Debuchy appeared to handle the ball, but it was accidental and referee Chris Foy waved play on.

After five minutes of added  time the referee blew the final whistle and it was another great victory for Newcastle as the defense held out in the second half to a Tottenham onslaught, with Krul putting in a wonder performance in the Newcastle goal, and the best goalkeeping performance seen this season in the Premier League.

The Newcastle players at the end of the game embraced Krul, who was easily the Man of the Match, and but for the Dutchman Newcastle would have been beaten today – Tim was the difference in this game.

Krul made 14 saves from 14 shots on goal by Tottenham, and he got us the 3 points at White Hart Lane, helped by another terrific performance from our back four.

6 points from the last two games against Chelsea and Tottenham is simply phenomenal.

Teams:

    Squidward had a brilliant game. He didn’t get close enough to the box to do his trademark stepovers but he did at least one as he watched it go over the touchline. Has the ability to be the new Gareth Bale, I reckon.

    Catchy

    Still slagging everyone off after we win.?

    Oh how it must hurt you when we win.
    Nothing will ever be good enough for you as you are constantly being shown up to be WRONG – but you are not man enough ever to admit it.

    I’d rather be a happy nunpty when we win than a totally sad bitter b**d like you.

    I don’t post often on here and this is the last time too many clowns..
    We have just beaten spurs and Chelsea both teams expected to beat outselves comfortably. The tactics pardew set us out with have won us the game and well done I say ..
    I am so bored of the likes of catchy and hiroshinu whatever moaning and bleeding thinking where too big of a club to have pardew in charge .. Reality check were not . We’re average. Every now and again changing manager works look at soton but more often than not takes more than one to get right and the proof is in the pudding ., ourselves , Sunderland, etc have changed manager far too many times far too often ..
    We’re in 9th which is above our station considering the backing of the board so back your high horse in,, should be happy with a win today but yet I’m more pissed off with how much of numpteys some of our fans our,, that’s mean done. Over n out

    Thump – beware making “negative” comments about “the Mekon” -he was part of the winning team today. The pro Percy group known as the Blind Faith Brigade (also known as the Legion of Dishonour) have been out in force today crowing like cockerels suggesting all previous failures have been corrected. The have been out in numbers today – just like a group of grannies,who have decided that because of safety in numbers they can all attend the local bingo hall for a game of housey housey and swig a couple of bottles of milk stout in the process. They can appear quicker than a rash on a wild dogs bollocks.

    Unbelievable performance by Krul and Remy got us the goal we needed. We sagged in the second half and gave the ball away time and time again. Krul to the rescue though so we got the points. I wouldn’t try that approach too often however Pardew.

    We are ALL waiting fir us to crash and burn – even the most optimistic– as the song goes “what goes up must come down” Should play that at SJP instead of Local Hero.

    What say you for a stuffing by Norwich at SJP ?

    No point being too cheerful is it ?

    Catchy,

    I’ve watched the Toon for 50 years and I there is only one thing I ever ever want – to see us win.

    At the end of the end of the day I couldn’t give a flying fk how we win. We could get battered for 89 mins 59 secs and score in the last second and I’d still be punching the air and punch drunk happy until the next game. And if we did that every game for a season I’d be dancing right through the summer because it would mean we’d won the Prem.

    Yes, I’d like us to play fabulous attacking football and achieve the same results – but at the end of the day I’d rather see us play sh1t and win than great and lose.

    I just don’t understand the mentality of any football fan at any club who thinks any different to me.

    Football is about winning first – and entertainment second.

    How about criticism for the lads on the bench for turning up today then? Surely they deserve a snide nackhander as well, dont leave anyone out.

    Nobody thinks seriously Pardew has cracked it, he is always ready with another disaster like both derbies. But for now ease up on the genda for a day so we can be happy with the reult without all the cackling and beware-the-Ides-of-March blather, give us a breather. We will lose again soon enough, save it for a credible occasion like then.

    We started to lose confidence in the second half and give the ball away. How many times did the defense just boot the ball up the field? Still it worked because of Krul. Their actual finishing was poor though. Nothing clinical at all from them. They could use Remy. Sshhh don’t anyone say it out loud. Surely he’s going to have loads of offers at the end of the season?

    Impossible for us to get any wins out of that series of games? Liverpool, Mackems, City, Chelsea, Spurs…

    7 points, tight loss to the scum and a tight defeat in the cup.

    Damn negative muppets.

    Mister Tuff,

    Lke it not you actually want the Toon under the current management and owner to LOSE games just to justify your blind hatred.

    You are not a supporter.

    No way.

    Newcastle have had this policy of buying players based on certain criteria, ie. age, contract status, cost etc, and on the strength of an experienced scouts appraisal and then asking the manager to put a competitive team together out of what he’s been given.

    Starting to look like Pardew has managed to settle on a core group of players and a system that can deliver. Taken a while, but it’s hard to view the main problem as being other than getting the criteria, scout and manager on the same page. I think Pards does well with the cards he’s given and within his own limitations, which seem less than would appear at face value. Capable manager to give him his due, and possibly better than that and with more to offer. Interesting season unfolding.

    yo-yo I think we could very well get a result in the Norwich game -if -again big if -if we play like we did in the first half today – massive energy levels -and I think a continuation of the current excellent performances by Cabaye and Mr T.
    Not so sure about the West Brom game – they seem to be putting some decent games together. If we could get a minimum of 4 points from these two games I may be convinced we have turned a corner. Having said that we still need a couple of players at least – strong centre forward and commanding CB.
    I get the feeling -with comments from JK and Percy about no finances and the recent scoops from Sports Direct News (a trusted news source- NOT) that we a been softened up to lose one or two players in January (to fund new players).

    bills wat makes me laugh is can you or catchy or anyone tell me a team that wins and dominates n plays great football week in week out in the prem?
    it doesn’t happen thats why its the best and hardest in the league
    catchy watches the top teams in the poorer leagues and for some reason expects us to do it

    We beat them but by the skin of our teeth. I want to see a strong performance against a fairly poor side at home, so let’s see how we do against Norwich. We should win 2-0 or 3-0 if the team has truly turned the corner.

    Hardly posting lately as moved house and broadband not getting installed until next week and its taking ages to get on to anything.

    Unbelievable that people are still finding things to moan about after just beating spurs and Chelsea.

    A brilliant win today and everyone played their part. Gutted debuchy is going to miss a game as he’s been excellent lately.

    Been reading a few comments about HBA and cisse and have to say cisse has been awful for way over a year now. If we could get near the money back we paid for him I’d take it.

    Also HBA looks like he’s not in pardews plans so if we could get 20 plus million for the pair and replace them with Ba and ince I’d accept it.

    You think someone is going to pay somewhere around 9M for Cisse and 20M for Benny Harley mate? I like your optimism and Ashley would love it but I don’t think we should count our chickens just yet. Cisse is absolutely hopeless now and everyone can see it every time he’s on the pitch unfortunately for us.

    manxpie and space cadette bills.
    I think if you look back at my posts today I predicted a 2-1 win – errrr —- is that not being positive about the team and the result. How is that negative – clearly in both your cases the lobotomys’ have not been successful. I think you could both sue for compensation successfully – using your posts on here as evidence.
    Why do you want to spew out your vitriol constantly accusing others who may disagree with all you say -as haters -rather extreme if you ask me. A couple of Mr Angrys’.

    He will get it right we just need to keep putting him out there. The lad is drained.

    We have all seen what he is capable of. When he comes to light it is going to be a right buzz. I just hope its at the right time.

    I’d be ok with Cisse an Benny being moved on, despite their obvious talents, as they seem hard to fit into a consistently performing, if less thrilling side, which frankly I’d take in a heartbeat, over the Jekyll and Hyde stuff we’ve been enduring while the pair of them have been in the fold.
