If pundits were supposed to get results wrong then David Prutton of Sky Sports would be one of the very best in the business – at least where Newcastle United are concerned.
David never seems to get his predictions right for the Magpies – we were supposed to lose to both Brighton and Huddersfield, but we won them both.
Then he relented and said we would beat Reading away – but we only drew.
David Prutton – Sky Sports pundit predicts Newcastle win – what’s going on?
Then for the Wigan game after the International break, David said this had banana skin written all over it and predicted a 2-2 draw.
This while seemingly predicting wins for Brighton and Huddersfield almost every single game – as he did for their Saturday games when the Terriers actually lost to Burton at home.
At least now he has admitted he cannot get his Newcastle predictions right.
That’s very true.
Here’s what David has said about tomorrow night’s game at home to Burton Albion:
“We’ve seen Newcastle struggle against teams down the bottom: Wolves, Blackburn and QPR when they were down there.”
“I just can’t get Newcastle right. When I go draw, they win, when I go win, they draw. My head’s all over the place.” (so is mine)
“But I’m going to side with a narrow home win with Dwight Gayle getting the winner.” (oh no!)
Prutton Prediction: 1-0
The last time he predicted a home win for us (2-0) was when we could only draw 2-2 with Bristol City.
So we have all been warned.
Yes he predicts wins again for Brighton – at home Birmingham tonight (2-0) and Huddersfield (2-1) at home to Norwich tomorrow night.
Same old same old.
