Top Tottenham Star Will Likely Miss Newcastle Game


Newcastle need to make sure we win the next two games against Crystal Palace and Aston Villa and then we would have a very decent chance of making it three wins in a row in the final game of the season and possible safety from relegation.

Wouldn’t that be something.

Tottenham, with their draw last night against West Brom at White hart Lane now look like the best they can finish in the league is second top – and they will not be coming to St. James’ Park on May 15th where a draw or a win could get them the title.

Dele Alli

Dele Alli – charged with violent conduct against West Brom

And the other good news for Newcastle is the youngster Tottenham beat Newcastle to 16 months ago – due to our dithering around again not being able to make a decision – Dele Alli – has been charged with violent conduct form that game.

That charge, if it holds up, usually carries a three match ban and would mean Alli could not play in any of the last three games of the season.

That includes the game against Newcastle so things are starting to potentially line up nicely for Newcastle.

But we cannot give any soft goals away in the last three games either.

Rafa Benitez will be working his socks off for the rest of the season (what’s new?) and will try his very best to conjure up a number of wins.

Two sellouts in the home games against Palace and Tottenham will help a lot and our lads will need to play out of their skins at Villa Park to secure only our third win on the road this season.

We have everything to play for and Villa don’t – but they will still give us a good game.

It’s up to our players to want the win so much more than Villa.

Howay The Lads!!

    VTM, apart from mitro, as stickle points out, i’m with you on that team. I think being benched has given Gini a much needed kick up the jacksie and we could really do with him being in form for the run in. Can’t see Rafa not agreeing either. It does pick itself and this is rafa, not macca! 😉

    @1 – yet despite the lack of game time scored a vital goal the other day. Wouldn’t worry me if Cisse started again. I think he’d get better if played more.

    evening all
    cisse’s first touch is horrendous, but i believe he’s playing for his mobility which helps defensively…perez is poor on the left…seems to be trying to hard and getting caught on the ball…that side will probably be the starting eleven,although im not a fan of gini on the left,shame aarons is’nt showing some sort of form he showed pre-season…that left hand side is a constant pain in the arse this season.

    Tsunki, it was his first goal in a while though. It’s a difficult choice because neither are prolific when all’s said and done. I think it depends on how rafa chooses to play. If he wants pace, but a man who traps the ball like a wall, then it’s cisse. If he wants brawn, good hold up play but misses chances, it’s Mitro. Spoiled for choice eh? 🙂

    Think mitro and both need a partner maybe each other but rafa likes 4 5 1 and has it working imo

    I agree. We need the added threat of two strikers. Would this mean that sissoko gets pushed out wide though.

    Not so keen on that tbh.

    i’d like to see 2 up top but cant see rafa changing it as the system has worked so far….team need to start awake and fired up…coz no doubt pardew will know we are notoriously slow to start and take about ten mins or a goal to wake up

    Springy. We only start playing when behind, so maybe we Should score an early own goal in the first minute and begin playing straight away? 🙂 get a good 90 minutes out of them that way. 🙂

    well i think we coul be quite fluid and interchangeable with gini sissko and townsend but dropping colback and putting sisko there and 2 up top is more threatening and surely more worrying for the other team

    rafa may surprise us all, we’ve played the same for the last 3 games and maybe thinks that keeping the same is a bit predictable now and with us being more confident and at home may go more offensive with 2 strikers….it would certainly throw pardew off his game if he did…i doubt this will happen, but theres always the chance.

    Springy, you know, i’d take going behind as long as we win. Won’t do my ticker much good , but i like excitement so wtf. Gonna be a very nervy run in, but it’s not beyond us. Rafa has done wonders with those players and those gears keep clicking into place. The latest ones being spurs done for and now alli out. It just all seems to be fitting into an order from which we can triumph. Might be just me, but i hope it isn’t. 🙂

    one game at a time mate,if the mackems win and we got beat this weekend it would be disastrous….leicester could do us a big favour this weekend by beating manure…there should be one or two things starting to fall into place this weekend results wise..top and bottom.

    Manpixie, i would only use one dm myself at home, but i think this might be a case for if it ain’t broke… I think just getting this lot to play in an organised fashion is a minor miracle and maybe not push them too far. However he does it, a win will do for me. We must win at any cost. I just can’t wait. 😉

    Seriously springy, i don’t even want to think about that happening! Too scary at night. 🙂 We need to win one more game than they do. Sounds easy if you say it quickly. 🙂 A sneaky feeling we’ll do it, but then i’m a terrible optimist marra. If we lose saturday i’ll still find a way to be hopeful until i know we’re gone.

    beating palace applys the pressure,whether thats 1-0 with a goal in the 98th minute bouncing off someones arse,or winning 6-0..2 hatricks 1 each for mitro and cisse makes no difference the pressure is whats important…arsenal dropped the ball last week and they have norwich at half 5 on sat….need games from the arseholes and stoke…the mackems have three games in the last week,pressure could be telling in the last week…. as long as we get to the last week

    Springy, my sentiments entirely. Getting to the final game still in with a shout is the best we can hope for. I’ll take it all day marra, with open arms. Don’t care how we do it, it just hope we do it.

    ano cisse scored last week, but if he had’nt… most people would of been going nuts on here about his close control and first touch…..so so bad for a premier league player…i was starting to actually think maybe riverre should be given a try it was that bad….hope they have had him doing extra training coz its vital that the striker hangs on to the ball as much as he can…and he could’nt!

    Springy aye, he traps the ball as good as a wall – it just bounces back off him so bad i cringe for him sometimes. If it’s pace he wants, why not stick Aarons up top! 😉 Now that would be interesting! Better control as well!

    Stay? Who’s song you say?

    My first hearing of the song was by Maurice Williams and the Zodiacs – must’ve been about 1962.

    It lasted about a minute and a half.

    Would’ve finished so much earlier if the borg just accepted my truce marra, but when insults get really personal, ya just can’t let it sit can ya? 🙂 if it’s not the borg and me, it’s jib, or anyone else they decide is this months target. The only consistent thing in every row on here is the borg. That should indicate something to any intelligent observer. Never took shyte in my life marra and i won’t take it from those lowlives. See how nice i am when they’re not attacking me? 🙂

    i do hope in our last 2 home games the fans let rafa know we want him no matter wat, with many chants and banners and pull on his heart strings a bit even if it helps ashley make sure he stays if we go down so he doesn’t get quite the backlash he deserves

    That’s the one mate! Been covered a million times i think. Four seasons did it as well. It might even be theirs, although maurice wrote a lot of his own material so maybe not. Anyway, same record. 😉

    Wonder if we can get it played at half time? I’m sure we’ll let him know he’s loved anyway, although i think he knows that already. Think he’s loving us back. Best way is to stay up and then he’ll honour that contract.
