04.10.1997 Ian Walker kept Tottenham in the game for long periods before Newcastle hit a last minute goal to take the three points.

Both Les Ferdinand and David Ginola tested Newcastle keeper Shay Given, with Howey's foul on Dominguez in the area waved away by the ref.  That perhaps equalled out Mabbutt's challenge on Ketsbaia in the box that brought the midfielder down without punishment.  Magpies defender Warren Barton had hit the bar in the 76th minute and Walker denied Ketsbaia and Rush, but could only parry Batty's 20 yard shot and Barton converted the loose ball for the winner.

NOTE  - Only four Spurs subs (Baardsen, Dominguez, Sinton, Nielsen) were named, as Gary Mabbutt was the fifth named sub, but had to replace John Scales, who sustained a calf injury before kick off.  It happened so late that the change was regarded as a substitution, although PL rules were changed for future instances of such an injury. 

28.12.1996 Spurs slumped to a big defeat in an extremely poor performance where Shearer (2), Ferdinand (2), Robert Lee (2) and Philip Albert scoring for the Magpies, with Allan Nielsen getting Spurs what was a mere consolation goal in the 88th minute.

03.12.1994 Teddy Sheringham opened the scoring with a goal when he ran past the Newcastle defence to slot the ball past Pavel Srnicek in the 14th minute, bending the ball into the top corner with the outside of his boot from outside the box. 

Fifteen minutes later, Ruel Fox was on the spot to nudge home a loose ball in the goalmouth to beat Ian Walker to equalise, but Teddy restored the lead when he was picked out by a Darren Anderton corner on the edge of the box and buried his shot just before half time.  However, Fox popped up again in the box to make it 2-2 at the interval. 

In an open game, there were chances at both ends, but in the 71st minute Sheringham completed his hat-trick and Romanian Gica Popescu rounded off a 4-2 win with a low shot from the edge of the box at the Paxton Road end with ten minutes left.

14.08.1993 Spurs won on their first trip to St. James' Park in the Premier League with a goal from Teddy Sheringham, who stole in between defender and keeper to steer the ball in from the edge of the penalty area.  The 36th minute goal came after Vinny Samways slipped the ball through to the England striker, who slotted home.

Spurs enjoyed the better share of the possession and could have extended their lead, when good chances for Durie, Sheringham and Dozzell all went close, but meant that Tottenham had to settle for the single goal victory.

03.09.1988 Paul Gascoigne found himself making his debut at his old ground, as the postponement of Tottenham's home Division One match against Coventry City made this the season's opener for Spurs.

Welcomed back by a shower of Mars Bars every time Gazza went near the touchline, the midfielder was part of the Tottenham team that found itself 0-2 down early on to goals from Andy Thorn and Darren Jackson.

However, Chris Waddle hit a volley into the net to bring Spurs back into the match, then Walsh and Waddle worked a short corner routine to set up Terry Fenwick to head in the equaliser.

21.01.1976 Newcastle progressed to the League Cup final by winning this semi-final second leg 3-1 to go through 3-2 on aggregate.

Goals from Alan Gowling, Glenn Keeley and Geoff Nulty saw the Magpies through to Wembley, while Spurs could only muster a response of one goal from defender Don McAllister.

The third minute opener from Gowling put the Magpies level on aggregate and then they went further ahead through a 46th minute goal from defender Keeley and his fellow back four man Geoff Nulty made it 3-0 on the night with a goal ten minutes into the second half.  An hour had passed when McAllister got one goal back, but Tottenham could not force an aggregate equaliser and went out of the competition.

14.01.1976 Spurs grabbed the initiative at the half-way stage of this League Cup semi-final after the first leg 1-0 win.

A single strike from John Pratt gave Tottenham the win, but an inspired display in goal from Pat Jennings kept Newcastle at bay as they pushed forward to gain an equaliser.  Referee Clive Thomas played a good advantage when defender Geoff Nulty stopped John Duncan's header from Terry Naylor's cross from going in with his arm.  The match official let play continue and Pratt seized the loose ball to crack home a fierce shot.

The last half hour was a backs-to-the-wall effort by Tottenham, as Newcastle pushed for an equaliser, but Jennings saved everything which was thrown at him, producing a stunning save from a drive from Tommy Craig which saw him arch backward to  punch the dipping shot away for a corner.

John Tudor gave the Magpies the lead and Stewart Barrowclough extended that lead to 2-0 after the break.  However, John Pratt and John Duncan hit back to earn Spurs a point on their visit to the North-East.

11.01.1975 A hat-trick by Alfie Conn took the headlines in this big win at St. James' Park, as Spurs ran out 5-2 winners at the home of Newcastle United. 

When Alfie Conn converted the first goal of the game in the 14th minute, scoring with a run past Glenn Keeley and then firing a shot low to Iam McFaul's left as Frank Clark and Pat Howard closed in on him, the final result could not have been imagined.

When Iam McFaul was beaten by Cyril Knowles' driven cross, fumbling the ball into the net, the signs were there and John Duncan hit a shot on the turn to find the net and Conn got a fourth before half-time.

Considering Tottenham's poor form this season, to be 4-0 up away from home was a good result at 90 minutes, let alone at half-time.

The second half was more evenly contested and Micky Burns got a goal back 10 minutes after the restart. When Jimmy Neighbour's back header into the goalmouth caused confusion in the 62nd minute, Alfie Conn seized on the indecision and scored the goal that gave him his hat-trick.

Eleven minutes from time, Newcastle got another goal back, with David Craig striking a fine shot to reduce the arrears to 5-2.

Spurs enjoyed a 3-0 First Division home win over Newcastle with Cyril Knowles grabbing a brace and Martin Chivers scoring the other goal.

Martin Chivers had already put Spurs ahead, when Philip Beal's shot was deflected into the air and Cyril Knowles darted onto it to head in to make the score 2-0 at the Paxton Road end.  Then Knowles made it three with a free-kick expertly curled around the wall from just outside the box shortly after to give Spurs a three goal lead within seven minutes.

Tudor hit a 21st minute goal and McDermott scored seven minutes before half-time, after being set up by Terry Hibbitt, to put the Magpies into a good lead at the break.  The only Spurs chance of the first half saw Alan Gilzean hit the bar with a header.

However, Spurs hit back with two goals from free-kicks.  Chivers headed home Peters' cross in the 59th minute and then Ray Evans hit a dead ball onto Alan Gilzean's head and he set up Peters, who scored a couple of minutes after the first goal.  With the final whistle looming, the ref awarded Spurs a penalty for a push by Bobby Moncur on Gilzean and Chivers strode up to hit home the spot-kick for a late winner in the 87th minute.

30.08.1972 A rare Joe Kinnear goal earned Spurs both points at St. James' Park.

With the game being played on a summer's evening, Spurs put on a fine display with some very good football and a goal early in the second half was enough to secure the points.  It was a neat free-kick routine that produced the winner, with Kinnear touching the ball to Steve Perryman, who chipped over the defensive wall for the Irish defender to run onto his pass and smash the ball into the net past Iam McFaul for what would be his last goal for Tottenham.

And it was Kinnear who secured the win with two goal-line clearances as Newcastle piled on the pressure at the end from a string of six corners.  Martin Chivers was denied a goal by the outstretched leg of the keeper, as he shot low after breaking into the penalty area.

22.01.1972 Spurs lost 1-3 at Newcastle United as Malcolm Macdonald caused Tottenham all sorts of problems. The striker's movement was making space for his team-mates and they capitalised on this to lead on the half hour. In front of an empty stand due to the ground improvement, Irving Nattrass drove a low shot through a mass of bodies in the Spurs box to score.

An improvement in the second half saw Spurs equalise through Alan Gilzean in the 54th minute, but two quick goals put paid to any come-back. Macdonald and John Tudor scored to seal the result for Newcastle. Late on Roger Morgan came on as a substitute to make his first Spurs appearance since October 1970.

The game ended 0-0 with little to commend it, but there was crowd trouble and referee Ray Johnson pulled a muscle and had to be wheeled off on a stretcher !!

Spurs won this First Division meeting 4-0 against a Newcastle side including three debutants.  Former Spur Jim Iley was the captain of the Geordie team including Dave Elliott, John McNamee and Tommy Robson in their first game for the North-East side.

With 30 minutes gone, Dave Mackay opened the scoring from Jimmy Robertson's partially cleared free-kick as he rifled home a left foot shot.  It was a couple of minutes later when Terry Venables' free-kick was hit against the post by Robertson for Jimmy Greaves to turn in to add a second.

Eddie Clayton was on for Mackay, who bruised an ankle and his through pass five minutes into the second half set Greaves away for his second goal.  Venables helped himself to the fourth after Alan Gilzean set him up with a pass in from the left wing for the midfielder to rattle the ball home in the 58th minute.

22.03.1961 Les Allen's goal opened the scoring, but an inspired performance from Dave Hollins in the Newcastle goal made the points the Magpies' on their trip to London.

Hollins saved a Blanchflower penalty four minutes before the break and then Mackay's header hit the bar, with Cliff Jones and Bobby Smith (twice) were denied by goal-line clearances. 

In the 64th minute, Ivor Allchurch headed an equaliser, with Albert Scanlon netting the winner 15 minutes later.  The Newcastle keeper was not finished and produced a fine save to stop Terry Dyson bringing the scores back level near the end.

29.10.1960 A seven goal thriller saw Spurs take three points on their travels to St. James' Park.

Len White scored two solo first half goals to give the Magpies a half-time lead, although Maurice Norman had limited the lead with a header from a corner.  In the second period, White nipped in to seize on the hesitancy in the home defence, before Cliff Jones shocked the home crowd to put Tottenham in the lead, despite being in what looked an offside position.

With just five minutes left, Bobby Smith put away Les Allen's pass to make it 4-2, but Gordon Hughes struck to make the final moments tense.  Spurs held on to record their 14th unbeaten match from the start of the Double Season.

22.08.1959 Tottenham opened the season in style at St. James Park with a 5-1 win over Newcastle United.

Cliff Jones scored with a shot from 20 yards out in the 28th minute and when Tommy Harmer's corner came over in the 36th minute, it was Jones who rose to head home and make it 2-0.  Harry Taylor's cross was met by George Eastham's head to pull a goal back, beating Bill Brown, playing his first match for Spurs.

However, the revival did not last long, with Johnny Brooks firing in from a tight angle, before he went on to get his second and Jones completing his hat-trick both in the final eight minutes of the game, to wrap up a 5-1 victory.

17.01.1959 Conditions nearly wiped out the game, but it got the Noon nod to go ahead and Tottenham matched the home side's striker Ivor Allchurch woodwork strike with Dave Dunmore's effort smacking the bar.  Cliff Jones engineered the opening goal with a left wing run that ended with Dunmore knocking home the loose ball to put Tottenham ahead on 25 minutes.  

The lead was doubled just seconds after the break, when Spurs kicked off and scored without a United player touching the ball !!   Harmer to Medwin to Dunmore and he did the rest, rounding the goalie and slipping the ball home for his second of the game.

Newcastle were not going to give up without a fight and when Len White nodded in George Eastham's corner on the hour, it looked touch and go for Spurs with the Magpies piling forward, but we held out for a welcome away win.

28.12.1957 Spurs and Newcastle shared six goals in a thrilling First Division match at White Hart Lane.

An early solo goal in the sixth minute from Len White stunned Spurs into action, taking the game to the visitors for the remainder of the half.  Smith, Robb and a Stokes header all hit the woodwork, before Maurice Norman nodded in Dyson's corner five minutes before the half time whistle.

After 63 minutes, Dyson made an opportunity for Stokes to turn and shoot to give Tottenham the ascendancy, but that didn't last too long before White tied it up at 2-2 a minute later.  With only ten minutes left, Bobby Mitchell converted a penalty given for a Hopkins foul in the box, but an award at the other end of the pitch for handball by debutant Bill McKinney saw Harmer hammer the spot-kick past Simpson to earn Tottenham a draw with just five minutes remaining in the match.

White Hart Lane saw Spurs secure a 2-1 win over the Magpies at the Lane with the second goal being a bizarre one.  Bob Stokoe hit a long back pass in the 40th minute that flew past goalkeeper Ronnie Simpson to put Tottenham one up.  Spurs were already ahead through a 20th minute effort from Johnny Gavin, but Bobby Mitchell's goal on the hour reduced the lead, but Tottenham held on for the victory.

16.10.1954 An incredible match at St. James Park saw eight goals shared between the two sides.  Each side had a new signing in the team - Tottenham used Johnny Gavin newly arrived from Norwich City and the home side gave a debut to Bill Patterson bought from Doncaster Rovers.

Spurs went into the lead, when Sid McClellan shot over Mitchell in the Newcastle goal from 25 yards, but with 14 minutes gone Charlie Crowe pulled the score back to 1-1.  Jackie Milburn played in Ivor Broadis to give Newcastle a 21st minute lead, but this only lasted 12 minutes, as Eddie Baily netted to equalise.

A minute before half time, Len White restored the Magpies advantage, but a minute after the interval McClellan struck again to make it 3-3 and in doing so, collided with Mitchell, who had to leave the field and was replaced in goal by right half Jimmy Scholar.  Baily put Spurs ahead with 25 minutes left, but five minutes later, Broadis tied the game with a deflected shot off Harry Clarke and the score remained 4-4 until the end of a very eventful match.

Spurs survived a penalty award to go on and win this game at St. James' Park.

Sonny Walters had given Tottenham the lead in the first half, but a matter of minutes later, the home side were given a penalty, which Jackie Milburn took, only to see Ted Ditchburn turn the ball away and save the follow-up by George Hannah.

Milburn did beat Ditchburn in the second half to make the score 1-1, but a storming finish by Spurs saw George Robb and Eddie Baily score to put the Lilywhites 3-1 up by the end.

Newcastle got revenge for the big win of the previous season as they hit Spurs for seven.

The scoring started as early as the fourth minute, with Bobby Mitchell going past Alf Ramsey to score the first Newcastle goal, which was followed by more goals from Tommy Walker and George Robledo.

Mitchell made it 4-0 before Jimmy Scarth hit back for Tottenham right on half-time.

Les Bennett gave Spurs some hope of a fightback, but these were extinguished when Robledo got another two and Ernie Taylor hit the seventh
to put Spurs to the sword.

Tottenham were clear at the top of the table, but Newcastle made it hard for them to gain their single goal victory.

Arthur Willis' free-kick was met by Sonny Walters, who beat Jack Fairbrother in the home goal.  With Les Bennett injured early in the match, it made the going tough for Tottenham, but Ted Ditchburn was in fine form to thwart Newcastle when they got in on goal.  However, at the other end, only a fine Fairbrother save denied Baily doubling the score for Spurs.

18.11.1950 On their way to the Championship, Spurs showed exactly why their play deserved the title in this season.

At the time of this game Newcastle sat second in the table, while Spurs were two places below, but they made the table look ridiculous with a performance of stunning simplicity, despite going into the game without influential midfielder Ron Burgess.

Five minutes into the game, Spurs were ahead with Les Bennett finishing a great passing move and this was added to by goals from Eddie Baily and two from Les Medley before the interval.

A long range shot from Sonny Walters made it 5-0 ten minutes into the second half, before Medley completed his hat-trick and Alf Ramsey wrapped up the magnificent seven from the penalty spot to secure the two teams swapping places in the League.
