Can Newcastle Get Shock Win At Tottenham?

It’s strange how things sometimes work in this world, and after Newcastle had gone 10 league games without a win, we managed all 3 points last time out at home to Leicester City – and maybe – just maybe – we can get our second successive win at Tottenham on Sunday.

Cheick Tiote – back from injury on Sunday

And it’s not unusual when a club breaks a bad streak like we’ve had without a win, that we get another win soon after.

And with Tottenham playing last night at home to Greek side Asteras Tripolis – they won 5-1 – maybe we are catching them at the right time.

Last night Tottenham were 2-0 up at the half, young Harry Kane got a hat trick and French goalkeeper Lloris was sent of in the last minute after fouling Tasos Tsokanis, and the visitors scored from the ensuing penalty, with Harry Kane in goal.

The 21 year-old English striker could be the danger man on Sunday.

This was Tottenham’s side last night – it was a strong one:

Lloris: Dier Fazio Vertonghen Davies: Capoue, Dembele, Townsend (Lennon 83′ ): Kane, Lamela (Eriksen 76′ ), Adebayor (Chadli 77′ )

Before our win last Saturday we had gone 16 league games with just one win against Cardiff City who were relegated – so that’s just a terrible record, and Alan Pardew still need a few win rather quickly to lift the pressure on both him and the Newcastle players.

We should have  a number of players back from injury this Sunday, including Cheick Tiote and Mike Williamson, but only 19% think we can win at White Hart Lane for the second season running.

But with Tottenham being so inconsistent this season, there’s a chance for the Magpies to get a shock win, and at the very least we should be going for all 3 points.

    So we get three points against this year’s relegation candidates Leicester, and last season it was against Cardiff who went down on the full-time whistle last year.

    What a manager, what a guy. The trophy polisher and self-confessed King himself…

    What a joke he is. Four years on and the players still look clueless as a unit. Blagging and bundling their way to a nicked goal.

    We’ve as much chance of winning at Sperz as there is Ashley easing his grip, his obsession with the bottom line.

    We didn’t get a CB because although we are said to have had a verbal agreement in place, Mbia’s move came too late to enable signing his replacement.

    Translation: – Ashley wouldn’t risk going over-budget on the payroll to ensure a new CB was in place, even if that meant carrying Mbiwa as well.

    Whilst the idea of a club being self-sustainable is laudible, Ashley must surely allow some flexibility, some ‘fat’ in the budget to cover such situations. Or is he micromanaging the finances to the penny? I suspect that is the case – pathetic!

    I’m happy for the club to be run sustainably and self sufficient. But the simple fact is we aren’t even allowed to spend all of our income. That is before we even talk about the money that is diverted out of the club due to outsourcing of various sections. Or the fact that we aren’t able to maximise our advertising revenue due to all of his own brand advertising.

    Potentially with the income not being allowed to the club we could be £10-£15million better off a year at a rough calculation. Add that to the profit of £10million we made last reported accounts, and a likely profit of £25million plus for the next reported accounts and there is a huge sum that should be available to a well run self sufficient club.

    Hi Lilongwe Geordie

    I fully agree that that accessing money is the problem and that we’re not running to full potential.

    Apart from greed, I and I suspect you too, just can’t understand why Ashley’s so unwilling to use what’s available.

    Llambias once cited the Arsenal model as the one to follow – chance’d be a fine thing eh.

    Arsenal don’t exactly throw money around but at least they pay realistic wages and fees and budget for involvement in the Champions League.

    Whereas we, well, mmm, great innit!
