Many Faces ... Well Beaten!
Spurs boss Martin Jol tried to pick the bones out of a match his side never looked like winning. He claims he had the Magpies 'nervous', but his side looked shell-shocked and desperate to get on the bus back home by the time Alan Shearer crashed in the third.
Jol: 'We showed many faces today. When you concede a goal like we did in the first minute, it's always difficult.
'We knew we needed a clean sheet to come away with three points, but then we played to our strengths, played it to Aaron Lennon, who beat the full-back easily and got back into it. But then we made the second mistake and then the third one with the penalty.
'Before half-time, we could have scored the second one when Robbie Keane hit the bar and if we could have done that, even with 10 men, we could have got a result.
'But it wasn't our day. Jermaine Jenas had a 100% chance to score. They (Newcastle) were nervous even at 3-1, but we couldn't take advantage of that.'
