Kevin Keegan is all smiles after his second victory
Newcastle have recorded back-to-back victories 连续两次的胜利 for the first time since December after a 4-1 trouncing 大败 of Tottenham.

The Magpies 喜鹊(纽卡斯尔队的别名) went a goal down 输了一球 after 26 minutes as England striker Darren Bent headed 进了头球 Tottenham in front.

In the second half Newcastle ran riot 势不可挡, with Geremi, Michael Owen and Obafemi Martins all getting on the scoresheet 上了记分牌.

No Weak Link
 We had 11 players out there playing to their maximum, we did not have a weak link in our team. We could have scored more, we hit the bar and the keeper made two world-class saves.
Newcastle manager, Kevin Keegan

Newcastle manager Kevin Keegan said that there was not a "weak link" in the team, meaning the whole team played well and no single player performed poorly.

Looking Up
 We're starting to look up now. There is a chance we can catch Spurs and one or two others who get stuck in that middle area where there is not a lot to play for other than pride.
Newcastle manager, Kevin Keegan

After failing to achieve a win in his first nine games in charge 主管, Keegan thinks things are "starting to look up now" for his team. By this he means that the situation is looking more positive and hopeful than before.
