In our poll for the game tomorrow against Leicester City most fans think we will win the game with the next most likely result being a defeat.
A draw is at the bottom of the list with only one in four fans thinking that´s how the game will end up tomorrow.
Paul Merson – expects a draw tomorrow at St. James’ Park
Here are the results of our poll at the moment.
Alan Shearer has said today that if we cannot win tomorrow then the lucky 3 points we got at Bournemouth last time out will mean nothing – so Alan thinks we can get a win tomorrow.
So obviously Alan is one fan who voted for a win in our poll.
Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson doesn´t agree – although he does think it could be a cracking game at St. James´ Park tomorrow:
“Leicester are the best team you’ll ever see when they’re 2-0 down, but before 2-0 down they’re not as impressive.”
“Newcastle have to come out and have a go, and the fans will expect action, and that plays into Leicester’s hands.”
“Newcastle were extremely fortunate against Bournemouth, it could have so easily been a really bad result on the south coast.”
“I think there will be goals here, and an entertaining game.”
Paul Merson´s prediction is a 2-2 draw.
We suppose we´d be happy enough with a point, but we really need to put a string of wins together if we are to be above the relegation zone by the end of the year.
And that has to be a major objective if we are to attract good players in the January transfer window.
What do you think?
