Fans were disappointed that we conceded a poor goal and could have taken a point at Wembley against Tottenham today.
It was a late mistake after 83 minutes by our goalkeeper Dubravka but Martin has played so well for us it’s a pity we lost this way.
He let a Son shot directly at him slip past him and over the lines – but he’s getting a lot of backing from the Geordie fans.
And one Atlanta fan watched the game and said that our new signing Miguel Almiron will offer an awful lot going forward – we’ll be a lot more of an attacking side with him in the starting eleven.
Martin Dubravka lets the ball slip through his fingers for Spurs winning goal
Newcastle played well again today and we were a little unlucky not to get a hard-fought point.
Hey #NUFC I am #ATLUTD fan and just watched my first Newcastle game vs Tottenham. Y’all are gonna have a knee slappin’ good time watching Miggy burn people up on the counter. Get excited! You’re about to be a much more dangerous team!

I really can not believe what I have been reading. Someone called Dubravka a donkey keeper. An actual Newcastle fan. Top players have off days. @alanshearer didn’t play well every game and missed chances or costly penalties. It’s about bounding back from these mistakes #NUFC

Gutted about the loss ?.
That being said, 3pts from those 2 fixtures is nothing to sniff at ?#NUFC

Lads stuck to game plan well. Unlucky. Thought Lascelles was superb today. Onwards & upwards #NUFC

Would be good to see:
Lejuene Lascelles Schär
Woodman, Fernandez, Ritchie, Longstaff, Shelvey, Atsu, Muto.
Kenedy can bugger off at the minute. #NUFC

Rondon was so unlucky with that header against the post on the hour #NUFC

Against Man City and Spurs I’d have taken 2 points. We ended up with 3 in total. The team has played well for 180 minutes against top sides, I think we can be happy #nufc

Weird game today. Looked nervous in defence, midfield not as solid as against Man City but much more confident going forward. Draw would have been nice but tbh we’d all have taken 3 pts from 6 a week ago #NUFC

Longstaff has a bit of Carrick about him. First time actually watching him play today, very tidy midfielder. #nufc

Yeah, Spurs were the better team, but to lose late on as a result of a mistake by someone who rarely makes them is gutting, especially given how good the defensive unit was, positionally and effort-wise. #TOTNEW #NUFC
