Pundit Predicts More Dropped Points For Newcastle

David Prutton doesn’t often get the scores right for Newcastle and it looks like he’s biased against the club for some reason – at least in his predictions.

He predicted 2-1 wins for both Brighton and Huddersfield against but of course we won both games.

He then apologized to Newcastle fans  predicted a win at Reading and we could only draw that one 0-0 so maybe it’s a good omen that e thinks we will only draw with second bottom Wigan 1-1 at home tomorrow.

David Prutton – Sky Sports pundit – biased against Newcastle?

This is what David has written about our game tomorrow:

“This has banana skin written all over it. Newcastle struggled at home to Blackburn, Bristol City and QPR, and you fancy Wigan will go to St James’ and be really up for it too.”

“They are fighting for their lives down at the bottom and I’m sticking my neck on the line here, I think they’ll get a battling draw.”

Prutton prediction: 1-1

It’s interesting that Burton Albion are at Huddersfield tomorrow and they are also fighting for their lives in 4th bottom place, but he predicts the Terriers will win 2-0.

Blackburn are also down there in the table in second bottom place and they are at Brighton, but Prutton says the home side will win 1-0.

So the top three sides play teams at home form the bottom four tomorrow – let’s hope we win the game and we cannot afford to keep dropping points at home against poor sides.

Did I say David Prutton was biased for Brighton and Huddersfield and against Newcastle?

Let’s make sure we win tomorrow and prove David wrong – once again.

    @Lesh – agree about Liverpools boot room but in the last 25 years, the level of coaching and influences from abroad has made promoting from within a difficult job.
    In days gone by, managers were both managers and coaches etc, but these days, the best of the best in the world manages in the English league, and managers have so much more pressure from more coverage, media etc players now have more power due to money etc, hope the likes of Shakespeare at Leicester prove me wrong but the games a different ball game these days.
    Reckon in the past, 60’s, 70’s 80’s, managers like Pearson would have proven to be top club managers, but now with people like conte, wenger, mourinho coming from abroad, being the best of british managers isn’t even enough for the top 20/30 clubs as you’re competing against managers that are best in the world.
    Reckon that’s why managers like Souness, Graham etc who had success seem to have drifted out way before retirement age

    Also – Prutton predicting top of the league Newcastle to draw at home against wigan who are 2nd bottom of the league and have lost 20!! games this season is an absolute joke from a logical position!

    This guy is letting some lurking dislike of the Toon cloud his judgement in my opinion. Every week his predictions get worse.

    Totally agree with you and would add that British coaches have proved to be inferior to those from western Europe in particular. Maybe it’s the FA’s coach coaching system’s lacking and as result, it’s not produced many top coaches?

    Pundit ?
    More lige Agent Provocateur.

    Hasn’t Prutton already acknowledged that his predictions are to
    stir up interest/comment/argument?

    His job depends on getting reactions, NOT on being accurate
    with his predictions.
