David Prutton has made his last prediction for the Championship season and he says that Brighton have been superb this season (what a campaign!) and the atmosphere at the Amex was wonderful against Bristol City.
Yes Brighton lost that game 1-0.
And what does he say about the Newcastle vs Barnsley game – that Barnsley have had a wonderful campaign.
What does he say about Newcastle specifically – well not much – that we’ve been professional (not good just professional) but no congratulations for the Magpies on promotion – none at all.
We understand he will be leaving sports journalism for a new promising career as a comedian this summer.
David Prutton – comically biased against Newcastle
This is what David has said about the Newcastle v Barnsley game:
“If Brighton win, there is nothing Newcastle can do.”
“I still think they will beat Barnsley, they have been very professional all season and that continues until the final day.”
“It’s been a wonderful campaign for Barnsley, who have consolidated after losing so many players.”
“But because of what’s at stake for Newcastle, I think they win.”
“Prediction: Newcastle 2 Barnsley 0.”
So he starts his comments by talking about Brighton?
And then he compliments Barnsley on having a wonderful season (they are 14th with 58 points – 33 points behind Newcastle) when in fact we have been promoted – how about complimenting Newcastle?
He’ so biased against Newcastle it’s just so comical.
On Aston Villa v Brighton this is what David said:
“It’s been a strange few weeks for Brighton since sealing promotion. Their main aim was achieved superbly but they have laboured somewhat since then.”
“Being away from home might help them a little bit. It was a wonderful atmosphere at the Amex against Bristol City but sometimes that leads to stage-fright.”
“I’m tipping them to squeak past Villa and seal the title. What a campaign.”
“Prediction: Villa 0 Brighton 1.”
So Brighton have achieved their aim superbly this season and yes you guessed it – they will pip Newcastle for the Championship.
It’s so sad to see such obvious and open bias against Newcastle United.
But that’s what happens when you a really big and famous club down below – everybody wants you to fail.
That would be the big news – not doing as well as we did and breaking the modern day attendance record with over 51,000 fans at our home games and being in the top two since early October – how boring.
It’s a good job our world-class manager Rafa Benitez and our excellent and gutsy players were not listening to any of these ill-informed and completely biased pundits last season.
Especially this one.
