Paul Merson Predicts Bournemouth vs. Newcastle

Paul Merson is very rarely positive about Newcastle when he is predicting our results.

But to give him some credit – but he did think a win was possible in our last game against Manchester United, although he still predicted the Red Devils would get all 3 points.

And his assessment that we could win was more a criticism of the Red Devils than praise for Newcastle, although he did say it was a game Rafa Benitez could win with his tactics.

But Paul is back to his “normal” prediction about Newcastle, and he thinks we will lose at Bournemouth tomorrow.

Paul Merson – predicts Bournemouth win

Here’s what Paul has written in Sky Sports:

This is a big, big game. If Newcastle win they bring Bournemouth straight back into the relegation mix, even though they (Bournemouth) looked out of it near the top half a few weeks ago.”

Newcastle have fared well recently but if Bournemouth, with home advantage, reach the levels they did before their shocking defeat at Huddersfield I think they will just have too much.”

Prediction: 2-1

Newcastle fans are upbeat after our last outing, and over 60% think we can win this game.

This game is huge chance for us to maintain the massive momentum we picked up in our last game when our players were simply magnificent.

    If Shelvey and Diamé play as well as they did last time we should be able to manage a draw.

    So easy to fling around right left and centre
    with criticism of Merson
    He’s a knob , he’s a plonker.

    However if you take a few moments to analyse what
    Merson is saying
    “If Bournemouth, with home advantage, reach the levels
    they did before their last defeat
    They will be no pushover”
    He is in fact spot on
    They’ve played well many more times than
    they’ve played poorly.

    They’ve only lost thrice at
    home and beaten us at SJP

    Tough game

    I was at the Bournemouth game at St James’ Park and I difinately want a win tomorrow. We were robbed in our home game when we had a perfectly good Dwight Gale goal ruled off, and they sneaked a goal in time added on, so for more ways than one I hope justice is done and we get the win we desrved at our place! If we play like we did against Man U we should come away with all three points and yes I know that, Huddersfield apart, Bournemouth have had some good results recently.
