What Will Be The Result Of Sunday’s Match At Spurs?

Newcastle have their third match of the season away to Spurs on Sunday. It is a tough one, for sure, coming off the heels of the poor performance at Norwich.

Steve Bruce has spoken about this match in his press conference this morning. This is some of what he said about facing Tottenham on Sunday:

“They’re a very, very good side. We’re under no illusions as to how difficult it will be, but hopefully, it’s just the right type of game for us.

“We know we’ll have to play well to get anything at all – far better than we did last week.”

We would also expect a couple of players left out of the first eleven in the Norwich match to be involved from the start of this match. Those two are Sean Longstaff and Javier Manquillo who were replaced by Ki Sung-yueng and Emil Krafth last Saturday.

Sean Longstaff– should be back starting on Sunday

This is what Steve Bruce had to say about Sean Longstaff and why he did not start against Norwich:

“I detected he was a bit ginger with his knee, which was understandable. I had a conversation with him to say it’s normal to miss a game or two to make sure he’s ready.

“When he came on, he had an immediate influence, and we were much better.”

Joelinton has been declared fit, and it looks like Allan Saint-Maximin may also make the trip to London. However, we would be stunned if Allan was started the game. If he is fit enough to take part, we would imagine he would be used as an impact sub.

Tottenham have announced the following updates on key players with fitness questions as well as the return of Son Heung-min.

We’ll be very lucky to anything out of this one. However, we need to see a reaction from the lads. A response is crucial at this point in the season.

    About 2 weeks ago you were on here slagging off TMG and boycotters.
    When you spoke of the TMG meetings it was “I think” itll be this type or that type doing x y z “I think”?
    “I think” isn’t the words I’d use if I’d been to a event as I’d KNOW what happened at that event.
    Let’s just pretend you did go.
    Everyone spoke about who they were if they still had a ticket etc, only 3 people said they still had tickets all said they planned to give them up this year. You weren’t one of those 3 as 2 were a Irish couple in their 60s and the other was a lad in his 20s.
    You’re either lying to the blog to get some credibility or you lied to the people in the room as you dont have the courage of your convictions.
    Either way you’re a liar, why would anyone believe anything you said?
    Be gone you poisonous rat.


    I went to the last meeting of TMG.
    It was held in the upstairs room of the Irish Centre.
    There were about 30 people there. 35 perhaps if you include the actual members of TMG.

    The evening started with a young lad from Wallsend doing some rap music on the stage.
    Not sure what that was about.

    A younger man with a beard spoke. Was it Adam ? Seemed a reasonable type.

    A lad of about the same age from Wor Flags spoke. Again, seemed reasonable enough.

    An older fella at the front spoke. Trotted out all sorts of stuff about Mike Ashley. Nothing I had
    not heard before. If anyone asked anything that he did not like he seemed to twist his face as if he was in some discomfort. Well, it’s a public meeting. Someone always will say something that challenges you. The bigger the meeting the more chance of that happening. Less chance when only 30 folks go. Yes, it was just an impression he gave and I may be wrong about him.

    Another older man spoke. His rhetoric in my view was inappropriate.
    I’ll say no more than that.

    A man sitting to his left to his credit said hang on a minute you can’t say that. Some people might think you actually mean that literally or words to that affect. I think in fairness that all present just thought that he had got carried away in the moment. Yeah, I’ll go along with that.
    However, I was not impressed and as I say it’s not the sort of thing I would want to be associated with.

    The fella who interrupted him I think was sitting next to the Irish Lady referred to by OP.

    At the end of the meeting I was left thinking they have no strategy, no tactics and no objectives.

    I appreciate it’s difficult. If it was easy we would have been rid of Ashley years ago.

    However. It does seem that we are stirring up a lot of anger and grievance. As we can’t get at Mike Ashley a lot of that is now being directed at match goers.

    I’ve been very careful about what I have said. I did not want to e mail TMG.
    I did not want to say anything that would identify me to them.
    Why – because I do fear threats and intimidation.

    OP is asking me this and asking me that. Part of it is he wants to know who I am.
    Well, most folks on this blog don’t make it known who they are. It’s a blog and that is my choice.

    Am I right to fear threats and intimidation.
    I don’t think it is their aim. However, they seem to forget they may be firing up certain more volatile types.

    Match goers have had no end of stick on here for weeks from some claiming to be be part of TMG.

    At no time did I say anything about keeping my ticket or otherwise.

    So, make of that what you will.

    Again, you won’t find any of that on google.
    His Tee Shirt can’t have been anything special.
    I can’t say I noticed it at all.
    Perhaps he has this idea that it’s wonderful and noticed by all.
    Sorry, not me.

    Just for clarity.
    When I say they spoke at the meeting.
    They were at the front with a microphone.
    They were the organisers of said meeting.
    Not folks who had just gone along.

    posada – think you’re taking this blog a bit too seriously, it’s mostly internet warriors and old men who like a bit of a rant and moan. they love it when somebody bites.

    Posada, detailed reply there. Hibbitt has a history. Ignore him and go to the games if you want. Nufc without supporter noise will be relegated.

    Munster Mag – it’s far from just Hibbitt who consider the anti-boycott types as Ashley’s enablers and unwitting supporters. And who contribute to the constant shit we are seeing
