Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson was raving about the Newcastle performance against Huddersfield last Saturday.
That was after our lads were much the better side against the Terriers even though it was a late goal after 80 minutes from Ayoze Perez that gave us the precious 3 points.
In fact, Merson even predicted we would win that game 2-0, and we didn’t know whether that was good or bad since Paul usually takes us to lose or draw.
Paul has come to his senses again and predicts that we will lose 2-0 at Leicester, who we admit are a very decent side.
Paul Merson – predicts Newcastle will lose – what?
Here’s what Paul said about our next game this Saturday afternoon:
“Newcastle’s win over Huddersfield was a massive result but I’ve got to go with Leicester, they’re a dangerous team.”
“I would say Newcastle are a win away from safety. I think 38 points is enough – you look at Southampton and Stoke, how are they going to get to 38?”
“Newcastle only need one win, but that’s hard to get.”
We assume Paul means that win is hard to get at Leicester City.
We could just surprise Paul for the second game in a row.
Howay The Lads!!
