Former Spurs manager Harry Redknapp – the pundit – is forecasting that Watford could shock Newcastle at St. James’ Park tomorrow afternoon and he wouldn´t be too surprised to see Newcastle lose to the newly promoted side.
Newcastle head coach Steve McClaren held his news conference this afternoon for the game and compared Monday night´s poor display and 2-0 defeat at West Ham to a car crash – and is hoping for a big reaction from his players tomorrow.
Let´s hope we can get our first league win of the season and that should silence some of the critics. some of which have been going overboard with their criticism of Newcastle since Monday night´s game.
Harry Redknapp – Newcastle defeat would not be much of a shock
This is what Harry had to say today about the game tomorrow – which kicks off at 3:00 pm:
“Newcastle are low on confidence and I can see Watford getting something out of this, not sure it will be much of a shock if they win,”
Newcastle did put in a poor performance in London last Monday, and it is now up to our players to stand up and be counted and we expect a much improved performance tomorrow afternoon, and hopefully a win.
Let´s just say another defeat – which would be our third league defeat in a row since we drew 0-0 at Manchester United – would not be good.
We also expect McClaren to make some changes to the starting eleven – and this could be the Newcastle team for tomorrow´s game.

Karl Darlow twisted his ankle in training and is not available for the game, so Rob Elliot will be on the bench.
Newcastle fans seem fairly confident we can get a win tomorrow.
