Spurs fans were nervous before the match and as Newcastle played well and Tottenham struggled, their Champions League hopes were in the balance.
However, Newcastle failed to find the net when on top and Harry Kane then showed them how to do it.
With news coming through that Chelsea had only drawn with Huddersfield, Spurs fans could relax and celebrate.
In the aftermath of the game though, interesting to see what the Spurs fans had to say, especially about Newcastle United.
Especially interesting to see such positivity about certain Newcastle players, Rafa Benitez, and even the NUFC supporters.
Spurs fans comment on Newcastle match via their top Fighting Cock message board:
‘F… me. That nearly killed me.
How Newcastle failed to score is beyond me but thank the lord for Hugo.
Didn’t really see their penalty claim too well from our end but it looked like a decent shout.
I’m drained. Satisfied. Very pleased. Relieved. That’s why Kane has to start. Always.’
‘This was a huge result, getting CL for a 3rd season in a row and all that, finishing above richer rivals, and possibly getting top 3 again; this is definitely an impressive achievement and we shouldn’t lose sight of that as we move to the new stadium.
I’m really excited to be going to our proper ground and hopefully having much better atmosphere next season.
Fair play to the geordies last night though, they made plenty of noise.’
‘Fully deserved over the season. A real achievement playing at Wembley.
Game was scrappy, but the negativity from some of the fans (including half of my mates) was palpable. Nice to see we’re as good at melting in real world as we are on internet! Supporting the team when we’re flying is the easy bit.’
‘Newcastle were decent, Rafa has done a great job there. Murphy, the late sub, has some wheels on him, so does Yedlin.’
‘I really despair of the people leaving 2, 5 even 10 minutes before the 90 is up.
I just don’t get why you’d spend the money, travel all the way there, one of the most important and nail-biting last 20 minutes of a game, with the team desperately needing your support to get over the line, and then decide “ooh, better go now to beat the crowds”.
Not just a few hundred, but thousands, tens of thousands of people filing out of the stadium with the whole season hanging in the balance.
What are you watching Spurs for? Either support them or stay at home.’
‘Frank Skinner always tells the same joke that at West Brom he leaves at full time to beat the traffic
You are right the scenes of the empty stands at full time were shocking but that’s where we are now, 2010 felt like a national holiday when we qualified now it’s WW3 if we don’t.’
‘I’ve always liked Rafa, even when at the scum and dipper he has always come off as the lesser evil compared to the likes of Maureen and the Wengabus down the road.
Obviously a very competent manager.’
‘Performance wasn’t great but for those at the game that booed at half time, seriously tonight was not the night for that sh…
Maybe once we’ve ditched Wembley and are back ‘home’ we might get rid of the ‘which way to the ground mate’ tourists who think it’s acceptable to boo every misplaced pass.’
‘I dont know if my eyes decieved me but i thought Sissoko had a good game tonight.’
‘He wasn’t the worst out there that’s for damn sure. A few of his usual mis-controls but that’s him. Besides that nothing to complain about.’
‘How much of a c… is that Ritchie bloke? Needs a good smack across the chops.’
‘We need a Shelvey type player. Best player on the pitch tonight. If he attitude was a little better I’d take him.’
‘Matt Richie seems like a clownshoe, doesn’t he?’
‘Why are we not point marking Shelvey? So much of their offence goes through him.’
‘Shelvey cutting us to pieces. I’m crapping my pants every time he has the ball.
BTW, why have we seemingly never gone in for him? Such a good passer.’
‘Said it before. I’d take Lascelles to Spurs. Good defender.’
‘Shelvey needs to go to World Cup.’
‘Would have Shelvey over Sissoko any day… good player. Tw.. but good.’
‘I can’t hate Sissoko because I find him hilarious.’
‘That mekon headed c… Shelvey has been fantastic tonight.’
‘It’s Newcastle’s kit. Our lads think they’re playing City. Only possible explanation for this dross.’
