Newcastle United Football Club occupy an unsafe space in may Spurs’ fans subconscious.
Largely because of a 5-1 at Sid James’ Park back in 2016.
However the last time we played these bar coded clowns in 2017 – it was a 0-2 to the Tottenham at Sid James’ Park.
Fast forward to May 2018 and I fail to see a bogey team.
Rather, I see a team that has to date achieved the magnificence that is 10th in the Premier League, and most recently lost their last three games in a row.
Two of which were away.
When I look at the Premier League website, I see their ‘danger man’ is Mohamed Diamé
Bar whose key strength is listed as ‘tackles’.
The betting markets are routinely a good indicator – bookies like to be buried swathed in the stuff.
Newcastle are 14/1 to win Wednesday’s game. Whereas a Tottenham win is 2/11.
The bookies are fully expectant of resounding Spurs win, and for the goals to flow more freely than they have been.
Spurs to score under 2.5 goals is 10/3, and over the same shut out at 3/10.
It’s all well and good branding our last two games as banana skins; they absolutely are.
However it is beyond ambitious to believe that Spurs won’t thwack this lot out of the stadium and into grey, grey Wembley night.
