Poll – Who Was Newcastle’s Man Of The Match In 2-2 Draw Against Spurs?



Steve Bruce made some important changes that paid massive dividends as Newcastle were able to get an unexpected point against Spurs. Despite reverting to a back five, Newcastle pushed up the pitch and were on the front foot for much of the match.

Jacob Murphy, Matt Ritchie, and Sean Longstaff all came in from the cold to put in excellent performances. Ritchie and Murphy got up the pitch to launch 16 crosses between them while Longstaff provided a superb assist on Joelinton’s goal.

The Brazilian played extremely well pairing with Dwight Gayle upfront. He took his goal well but both strikers had other opportunities that they probably should have done better with.

However, all the lads fought to the bitter end. Except for a spell of poor defending after our opening goal, Newcatsle may have come away with more than a point. To be honest, Spurs were not very good and were there for the taking.

We’ll take the point for now and hope it’s enough to keep us out of the bottom three. If Fulham pick up a win at Aston Villa, then they will jump us in the table.

Even if that happens, we should get Callum Wilson back for Burnley next weekend while Allan Saint-Maximin has an extra week to prepare for a potential start. The Frenchman was very good in his cameo this afternoon as was Joe Willock who rescued a point with his late equalizer.

    Hi Simon, i hope your having an nice Easter, i have no doubt the fans would now settle for almost anyone ahead of Ashley, that performance today at least gives us all a bit of hope of retaining our premier league status. Simon can you please explain how you know Gavin Peacock so well as i find it very interesting.

    That’s crackin’

    He did the same for the first, passed it to Sean, then you see him yelling – “on to Joe, on to Joe” then he mimicked the pass to Joe and the shot in the net.

    Plays from the heart does Ritchie.

    I once fitted blinds for Bruce’s in-laws who live in Heaton…. lovely lovely people, and noticed they had photos of their daughter and future son in-laws…what a beauty she was..is?
    Married to her and NUFC manager….how lucky can one get….

    I do believe that the term ‘not room to swing a cat’ refers to the use of a cat-o-nine tails, a whip.

    It’s plausible, but not what I know it as.

    Anyway, after reading that I’ve composed myself.
    Great point in the end and possibly cod have won it at the death when Manquillo put in a cross from a man that looked like he’d just ran a marathon as opposed to running round a well groomed field for ten minutes. At least it looks like the players are trying to avoid relegation. I haven’t read all the comments but did anyone mention Willock being interviewed, not sure if he was taking the pi$$ here but when asked about his game changer “(not sure if he said the gaffer) told me to go on and run around a bit and try and score a goal”
    I sheet you not, I am not making that up.

    Brilliant wasn’t it 🙂

    We have missed that passion as it shows it actually means something to him and It’s what I’ve been crying out for for months now and it’s been soul destroying every week seeing the lifeless performances.

    Not today tho and it feels good finally seeing some fight

    I wonder what Mrs Bruceyboy thinks now.

    However, a lot of folk have said that Bruce’s a nice bloke but there’s times he’s let himself down as a human being.

    As a manager, he’s not exactly blessed with a lot of talent and his ability to manage people when he’s under pressure leaves a lot to be desired. Furthermore, he doesn’t seem to be a good judge of character if he’s happy to take a wage from Ashley. Whether he agrees or not, Ashley’s screwed him over.

    If you didn’t pick it up, but Willock seems to be developing a bit of a Geordie accent… listen for ‘Yi nah’

    The villa game could go either way, hopefully will go villa`s.
    They are average at best without Grealish though.
    He might end up at Manure next season.

    Let’s hope he can work on it even more next year 😉 but I can’t even think that far ahead. I’m desperate for end of the season just to see what the future holds but will focus on Burnley and hopefully have all the lads back starting.

    Does anyone else think that Bruceless’ move to a more attacking playing style has anything to do with being offered a bonus if we stay up.

    Just asking for a friend.

    Fulham 1 nil up. Mitrovic of course.

    NUFC in the bottom 3. Are you watching Charnley? Time to put the biscuits down and pick up the phone.

    Ashley is not gambling with the club.The clubs position is secondary to destroying the fans.
