The first Premier League game of the 2012/2013 saw Tottenham Hotspur make the journey up to St James Park (I refuse to call it by that other name, you know the official name) for a 5:30pm kick off. Yes we had to wait until 5:30pm on a Saturday tea time instead of the traditional and much-loved 3pm kick off. But never mind there was a massive buzz just on the metro on the way to Newcastle for the game, nearly everyone kitted out in the new shirt and feeling very optimistic for the new season starting. And why not eh? We had a cracking season last year and should look to maintain that level of performance and attitude this season too.
