Last updated : 20 March 2009 By Boro Mad

Jonathan Woodgate (talking to The Mirror): "As a Middlesbrough lad, and having played for Newcastle, it's not nice when you see those clubs down there fighting for their survival.

"But Spurs have been down there as well. I'm sure they can get out of it.

"Being from the region, I wouldn't like to see any of the north east clubs go down - not even Sunderland. But they'll keep on fighting until the end, I'm sure.

"The fans up there are second to none. When you go up there there's always a full stadium in Newcastle and Sunderland.

"It's a fantastic atmosphere to play in."
