Newcastle were again second best tonight at St. James’ Park and conceded three poor goals, and then Spurs scored a terrific late fourth goal. Tottenham didn;t have to work too hard to easily win this game, and that was our third defeat in a row, and we’ve conceded 10 goals and not scored in thiose last three league games – and it’s our fifth league defeat in a row. in all competitions.
Steven Taylor blocks a shot form Paulinho
A first half goal from Adebeyor after 19 minutes put Tottenham ahead after Krul could only block a cross, and then Tim again could only block a shot from Adebayor after 52 minutes and Paulinho hit the ball home.
And then to make things worse after 81 minutes Tim Krul blocked a shot from Andros Townsemnd, but Adebayor put the ball into the back of the net.
And then after 88 minutes just to rub it in – substitute Nacer Chadli scored with a terrific shot from outside the penalty area, and it even took a great save by Tim Krul from Andros Townsend in stoppage time to prevent it being 5-0.
And it’s the fifth home defeat in a row in all competitions since we beat a 9 man Stoke side 5-1, we’ve lost all our games at home since then – so much for St. James’ Park as a fortress.
And add in a defeat by second bottom Cardiff City in the FA Cup and it doesn’t look good – and we’ve taken only 4 points from a possible 24 points in the league.
Newcastle tried hard – no doubt about that – but we simply were not good enough and the defense was again too porous.
We’re just glad we only have 3 points to get fto safety – we hope.
But Newcastle are now in free fall and selling Yohan Cabaye didn’t help at all – but the players seemed dispirited and jaded at the end of the game.
Newcastle are in trouble, and we just hope we can start turning things around against Aston Villa.
