21st Aug. 2004 PL v Newcastle United (a) Won 1 - 0 Atouba
Jacques Santini's second game in charge saw him gain his first win, following a home draw against Liverpool the previous weekend. Thimothee Atoube, one of seven players to make their Tottenham debut against Liverpool, was making his first start at Newcastle playing on the left side of midfield. The Cameroon international scored with a great right-foot curling shot after an hour. This gave Spurs their first win at St James Park since 2001.
