Sky Sports Pundit Predicts Preston vs Newcastle


Ian Holloway predicts all of the Championship games for Sky Sports and he seems top be a keen Newcastle supporter this season ever since he did his first ever interview for Sky Sports with Rafa just before out first game at Fulham – which we lost.

It must have been Ian’s fault.

🙂

After beating Preston 6-0 on Tuesday night – admittedly they had 10 men for almost 75% of the game – we need to get all 3 points at Deepdale on Saturday afternoon.

That will maintain our promotion push – which is the main priority this season – getting back to the Premier League.

Ian thinks Newcastle will get a win at Deepdale – that would be our sixth road win of the season.

Here’s what Ian said about the game on Saturday:

“It’s deja vu!”

“I hope it doesn’t go the same way for Preston like the 6-0 defeat it midweek and it will be a totally different situation.”

“Preston are really good at home but Newcastle are looking like the real deal at the minute.”

Ollie Predicts: 2-1 win for Newcastle

Although it’s down from recent games, there are still 79% of fans who think Newcastle we will win this game – they agree with Ian.

    WW….we’re good then. I take your point about it effecting the psyche of some players, and I think we saw the results of having a noun ambitious team on the squad and the exit door.

    I’m quietly confident we will get the three points at Deepdale.

    I think the run we are on now will continue for a little while yet.

    Jib…Why would you be “over the moon with a point”? Granted there shouldn’t be mass hysteria if we don’t win (or God forbid lose) but we’re the favourites to win and that surely is the target for the game?

    Factoid from Miles Starforth of the Shields Gazette

    “Aleksandar Mitrovic has started three games this season. Newcastle won two of them 6-0”

    For my predicted points total for the season, an optimistic 117 as it happens. I factored into the equation 5 losses and 6 draws.

    So on the win side it’s possibly looking a bit shaky but the draws are still looking like a reasonable chance.

    So a draw Saturday wouldn’t be a disaster, still expecting a win though.

    The question is then, did this blog send him loopy or did .co.uk simply bore him into submission??

    I did once look back for an early G2 post on here and it was extremely sensible.

    They have had a good run, we know that, we also know they are looking for revenge Greg Cunningham has told us so, but we are on a good run too mate, and we have a better team.

    Rafa will not underestimate them, and I recon the lads will bring home the points.
