Ange Postecoglou shares his concerns after Tottenham's crushing loss to Newcastle

Ange Postecoglou had a lot to say after Newcastle dismantled Tottenham with a 4-0 win.

Ange Postecoglou opened up on today's result against Newcastle. Tottenham looked weak in front of a team they had dominated 4-1 in the first round of this season.

The Greek-Australian boss didn't hold his thoughts back about this defeat, sharing his concerns about what he saw on the pitch earlier today.

“I was concerned with all of it. I don't think there was one area that cost us today. I don't think there was any part of our game that reached the levels that it needs to for us to be able to play the games on our terms, so whether that's the physical aspect, the technical, the tactical, all of it, we just never really got to any sort of tempo or intensity that we needed to, to stop a team that's got momentum right from the start," the manager said (

Tottenham lost a big game amid the race for the fourth spot

Tottenham reached a new low today after Newcastle dominated them from start to finish in the first game of Matchday 33. The North Londoners couldn't find an answer for Newcastle, who simply took over the game from the very beginning.

A couple of mistakes opened the door for Alexander Isak and Anthony Gordon to give their side a 2-0 lead in the first half. The rest of the game didn't change much and Tottenham continued to make the same mistakes, taking two more goals to finish the beat down.

This match seemed demoralizing for Spurs, who have been improving in recent weeks. Just like last season, Newcastle put them in a complex position, making Lilywhite fans wonder if they'll ever be able to challenge for something more than a Champions League spot.

Postecoglou also has a quota of responsability for this result, as his tactics allowed Newcastle to find space behind the full-backs, making Tottenham an easy target for the Magpies' attackers. He did admit though that a lot of damage the team received was 'self-inflicted,' pointing out that some players didn't show up today.

Spurs and their boss still have a lot of work to do if they want to reach a new level next season. The competition gets harder every campaign, and these underwhelming performances simply won't do it for a team aiming to fight for championships.
