If Spurs fans watch their team win the last two matches, they are guaranteed to finish third in the Premier League.
At home against a Newcastle side with nothing to play for and three dismal defeats in a row…
Nevertheless, the majority of Spurs fans appear to be in a permanent state of fear and dreading tonight’s match.
Reading the comments from them below, it is absolutely hilarious.
Yes, supporters of every club fear that their team will always find a way to fail but these lot need to get a grip.
Losing to West Brom on Saturday appears to have sent them into a frenzy, despite the Baggies fluking it with their only shot on target.
When reading the comments, bear in mind that since November up until last Saturday, Spurs fans had seen their side play 19 Premier League matches and only lose to Manchester City.
Spurs fans comments via their top Fighting Cock message board:
‘Newcastle will bait us and urge us to attack, then hit us on the break when we are committed.
It’s our weakness and Benitez strength – executed perfectly when they tonked us two seasons ago, with Poch suckered into a high press. I hope he’s learned from that game…’
‘This is going to be very difficult, a good defensively drilled team sitting back at Wembley, not looking forward to this week tbh.’
‘Spurs will win this . Newcastle are safe so won’t throw the kitchen sink at getting a result.’
‘Like when they were already relegated with nothing to play for?’
‘No, then they were p….. off, didn’t necessarily know when they’d be back… and wanted to take it out on someone and go out on a relative high… this time they’re just bored!’
‘We didn’t lose that game because Newcastle were angry, upset or more ‘up for it’ – we lost that game because we pressed Newcastle high – and they responded by defending deep and then hitting us with long balls to runners in the channels who could take advantage of the space.
It’s not passion, or mentality – it’s tactics. Poch needs to out-manage Benitez so that our superior playing personel can take advantage. It’s no easy task, but if Poch has learned nothing from two seasons ago I’d be surprised.’
‘Leicester and Newcastle fans getting it up for Chelsea’s sake only confirms their beta-bitch status for all time.
They can all f… off.’
‘We still owe them for that…And the 7 nil when Keegan was in charge..And knocking us out of the League cup in 77.’
‘Not quite sure how we’ve managed to turn this game into a must-win, but here we are…. desperately looking to take 3 points from Newcastle as the season comes to a close.
Anything but a win here will be a disaster.’
‘interesting to get a “non standard” email from the club this evening asking for the fans support at the game.
Think they’ve actually realized the fans have gone flat and need some bucking up… and the importance of the next two fixtures financially?’
‘Most teams seem to take some delight in f…… our s… up, count on Newcastle blending peak ’70s Brazil with a mastery of tripple bus parking and dark arts that would make Mourinho jealous.’
‘First time I’ve woke up properly nervous for a match in a while. Usually I’m excited for it.’
‘There is possibility Poch will start Sissoko tomorrow against his old club.’
‘Shelvey is their threat, we need to nullify him. More difficult now that both Dembele and Dier are out. I’d stick Wanyama on him or something.’
‘Hopefully Newcastle perform a heel turn in that ‘alliance’ and screw Chelsea over in the last game revealing they were with us all along.’
‘I know Leicester are desperate to be our rivals, but Newcastle fans don’t give a f… either way do they? Obviously they’re going to want to beat us, but not so Chelsea can get in the top 4 instead.
By far the most new pathetic of the new fan alliance is Chelsea, Woolwich and West Ham all cheering each other on to win against us. I mean, I take it as a compliment that they’re so bothered about us. But it’s just sad to watch, especially West Ham getting chummy with far bigger teams who think they’re a joke.’
‘It’s falling apart. The football is slow and unimaginative. Don’t see us winning. See Newcastle hitting us on the break .’
‘This is f…… newcastle we are talking about here- we shouldn’t be afraid of them, respect them yes, but fear them, no.’
‘It’s now time to see what this team is made of. They keep telling us they are stronger and close to winning a trophy, if they blow this they will be known as nothing other than the biggest bottlers in history.
Shouldn’t be feeling like this but it is what it is.’
‘If we don’t get CL, I’m done with this team.’
‘Our record against Newcastle in games near the end of the season has not been great to say the least..That needs to change drastically.’
‘Both New Utd and LC are looking as bad as us at the moment so if we can dig deep, which isn’t too much to ask for given the prize, we should get the desired results. We must beat Newcastle and take some pressure off going into the last day.’
‘No Kane please.
Rather see Sissoko playing CF than him at the moment.’
‘We have lost all our last 3 league games at home against Newcastle.
Another meltdown is upon us.’
‘Home games I think Kane looks well off it. Dembele looks tired, Eriksen and Alli running their socks off, Son out of form, and the defence generally steady if not awesome.
Be nice to get a fuller house than last Monday night and try and push this team over the line. All we can do as fans isn’t it?’
‘We are in a trough. It is pure and simple.
The manager and players are struggling badly to find the answers.
Not one player is rising high and part of that will be down to our over reliance on Kane to dig us out of the mire.’
‘It will set us back years if we do not get a top 4 place.
Anyone who does not recognise that (I think most do) is completely in denial.’
‘Listen the only good thing about this game is that Newcastle look like they’re on the beach and they lost three games, but if they park the bus, we’ll struggle again.
We’ve always struggled against these organized defensive sides and I can’t see it changing out of a sudden.’
‘We were on a winning run when Kane was injured, he was rushed back far too early for no good reason which is called mismanagement and hence the results. Stupid. Could cost the club millions if we miss on CL and fans will be fans and melt.’
