Sky Sports Pundit Predicts Newcastle vs Wolves


Paul Merson picked Newcastle to win last week in what is rare for the Sky Sports pundit.

That could have been the kiss of death for us becasue we didn’t play well and ended up losing 3-0 to the Hammers which is our worst defeat of the season.

The former Arsenal attacking midfielder has backed off a bit this week and only takes Newcastle to draw the home game against Wolves tomorrow.

Wolves beat Chelsea 2-1 at home last weekend after losing to Huddersfield and Fulham in the previous two games.

Paul Merson – thinks Newcastle will draw

So the newly promoted club should be confident, and it will be a good test for our lads.

Here’s what Paul has said to Sky Sports about the game:

“This is a hard game to call.”

“Newcastle were slaughtered at home by West Ham but then they go to Everton, who were very unlucky against Liverpool, and get a draw.”

“It’s the same for Wolves. They could not win a game for toffee but then they go and get a great result after being a goal down to beat Chelsea.”

“It’s so hard to predict and that’s why everybody loves the Premier League.”

“I think this will be a very entertaining game. “

“Newcastle must come out and try to win and Wolves play like that anyway, so I think there will be goals.”

Prediction: 2-2

If it does finish 2-2 Rafa will not be too happy at conceding two goals.

We have to keep it very tight and hope we can score one or two goals from somewhere.

But the wingers will be important tomorrow and they have to get those crosses in with Salomon Rondon showing he can score goals if he gets the service.

We are hoping very much that we can win this game tomorrow.

    This Online Guy rant epic reminds me of the Bobbybee saga where he was convinced I was parked outside his gaff in Richmond or Ripon with a torch on my hat and a pair of binos. I just bring out the best in people don’t I? Sheeeesh.

    Jib you have done the same thing, you greif a poster then put a hyperlink to a newspaper article about a nonce. You should think before you cast judgement your actions are no better.

    Anyone that has been abused doesnt need a constant reminder of peodos. They may have forgot about it for that split second in the day, then get reminded by people mentioning things about the subject.

    Get lost jib, poor points scoring from you. Obviously brushing aside context there. Surely someone on this blog is intelligent enough to recognise a hyperbolic statement? I was pointing out online hysterical “abuse” claims were overblown. You know what i meant.

    Negotiations with Leonardo Jardim didn’t go as planned
    and he has turned down an annual salary of €12 million
    from Saudi club Al-Nassr as he received an offer from a
    Premier League club this week.
    Which club I wonder ?

    Jib you always brush over comments when they are directed at you. You never give a reponse. Yet when the poster seems to go offline you respond with snide comments. Why do u do that?

    I was going to ask for the hyperlink you mentioned
    cos I couldn’t remember it
    but
    then you said sufferers of abuse don’t like it referred to
    assuming you were talking from first hand experience
    I let the subject drop .

    This is the gist of the link put up by DubaiMicky where we are named as the club with the best noise and atmosphere.

    ‘Though the ground has been tarnished with Sports Direct signage in every available nook and cranny, St. James’ Park remains a cathedral of football.

    Perched at the very top of the city of Newcastle, the noise from 52,000 Geordies echoes down into the streets, reflecting the crazed support the Magpies have enjoyed for generations.

    The club may have recently fell on hard times thanks to its (ahem) controversial ownership, and the threat of fan boycotts looming large, but St. James’ Park remains one of the best stadiums in England to watch a football match – if not the best.’

    Wonder how much of the noise is the result of fans shouting at Ashley to go? 🙂
