Three Points: Man City deservedly knocked out of Capital One Cup

ESPN FC's Craig Burley questions Manchester City's recent form following their latest slip-up in a 2-0 loss to Newcastle United in the Capital One Cup.

MANCHESTER -- Three quick thoughts after Newcastle's first win at the Etihad, a 2-0 Capital One Cup result against holders Manchester City.

1. City deserved to go out

The previous team to retain the League Cup, in its many guises, came from Manchester. Now Manchester City cannot strip Manchester United of that distinction. The holders are out, and deservedly. Newcastle may have lulled everyone into a false sense of security by naming a second-string side, but City were decidedly second-best in...

Super second half versus Spurs sends Newcastle confidence soaring

Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew praises his side's second half efforts during their comeback victory at White Hart Lane.

Newcastle United aren't out of the woods yet. But you won't find too many Geordie fans complaining after a deserved 2-1 victory over Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday at White Hart Lane.

Manager Alan Pardew has taken plenty of stick from all sides this season. Some of it was justified due to results, some of it not so justified given the lack of funds at St James' Park at his disposal. But when it comes to any side winning at White Hart Lane, every Premier League manager is entitled to enjoy...

Three Points: Tottenham vs. Newcastle

LONDON -- A trio of observations on Newcastle United's 2-1 comeback win vs. Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday in the Premier League.

1. Table tightens up

A huge lift for Newcastle, another crash down to earth for Tottenham, and something of a crunch in the middle of the table.

After this 2-1 win at White Hart Lane, Newcastle are now within a point of Spurs. That is all the starker because of the strikingly different circumstances of these clubs before this match.

Result needed for Pardew's Newcastle against weary Spurs

Newcastle manager Alan Pardew noted after the 1-0 win over Leicester City how vital the victory was.

After Newcastle's first win of the season last week, beleaguered manager Alan Pardew admitted that there was a long way to go for his struggling football team.

"This isn't going to be the be all and end all for us, beating Leicester. We need to beat some top teams," he said in the postmatch news conference. They have a chance to do just that when they head to White Hart Lane to face off against Mauricio Pochettino's Tottenham on Sunday.

The fixture will be Tottenham's fifth home game of the...

Gabriel Obertan earns Alan Pardew's Newcastle a much-needed win

Gabriel Obertan's second-half strike was the difference, as Newcastle picked up a much-needed win.

An afternoon that began farcically ended with Newcastle finally clinching their first win of the season thanks to Gabriel Obertan's 71st minute goal in a ragged match.

Ahead of the game, supporters were still locked out of the ground at the scheduled 3 p.m. kickoff time after a new screen, installed in one of the stands earlier this week ahead of next year's Rugby World Cup, became unstable.

Eventually news filtered through to the more than 50,000 waiting patiently outside that the game would go...

Soup, scoreboards and Newcastle's first Premier League win

Gabriel Obertan's second-half strike was the difference, as Newcastle picked up a much-needed win.

NEWCASTLE, England -- There's never a normal day at Newcastle United. Other clubs have normal days, normal weeks and sometimes even normal months when team, staff, officials, fans and reporters all inoffensively bumble through their lives together. Other clubs have a tranquil existence punctuated by fleeting moments of great drama.

At Newcastle, it always feels that the ratio is reversed. Theirs is an existence of great drama punctuated by fleeting tranquility. On Saturday, there was no punctuation...
