FIVE things we learnt from Newcastle United this afternoon

It was a case of déjà vu for Newcastle at St James’ Park today as for the second time in a week Alan Pardew’s men were denied all three points by an injury time equaliser. Last week it was Sunderland’s Asamoah Gyan who spoiled the party, and Tottenham’s Aaron Lennon took on that role today as Newcastle drew 1-1 with Spurs.

After a fairly tight first half, Newcastle went ahead just before the hour mark as Fabricio Coloccini chested down a Danny Guthrie cross-field pass and slammed it into the back of the net. Tottenham had a fair amount of possession without creating a great deal, and first Peter Lovenkrands, then Shola Ameobi and finally Nile Ranger had a chance to make it 2-0, before the inevitable happened and Lennon went down the other end in stoppage time to equalise.

So what were the FIVE things we learnt about Newcastle today?
