Tomorrow’s game at Bournemouth will give Newcastle fans a good idea of what the season ahead could look like.
Have we just made a poor start to the season and dropped points we shouldn’t have dropped and now will start to come away and climb the league table?
Or is it going to be another season fighting relegation?
Paul Merson – predict 2-1 win for Magpies
Skt Sports pundit Paul Merson talks about this game being a six-pointer – but it’s kind of early in the season to talk like that.
This is what Paul has said about the Bournemouth vs Newcastle game:
” Now this is a six-pointer if ever I saw one! People will say it’s only the start of November but this is a massive football match. ”
” Newcastle were bang unlucky last week against Stoke, they just bumped into Jack Butland who was on fire.“
“Bournemouth’s injuries are taking their toll and, despite playing well in the second half at Southampton, they lost again.”
PAUL PREDICTS: 1-2
So Merson thinks we can get our second league win of the season tomorrow in the early kick-off game at 12:45 pm.
It will be a huge relief if we can do that, but if we don’t win and stay in the bottom three over the two-week International break that’s a long time to think about possibly fighting relegation this season.
We need the win!
