Paul Merson got carried away last week with Newcastle and after we had beaten Huddersfield 1-0 away he thought it was definite that Newcastle would beat a woeful Fulham side at home.
He even predicted a score of 3-0 which would have been our best result of the season.
He was wrong.
Having got carried away last week Paul is back talking again about how poor a team Newcastle are.
And he says if we beat Liverpool tomorrow it will be the shock of the season – there is such a gap in quality between the sides.
Paul Merson – predicts a 3-0 home win
So it’s a more down-to-earth Paul Merson predicting we will lose 3-0 tomorrow afternoon in Sky Sports:
“I watched Newcastle against Fulham, they never looked like scoring in a month of Sundays.”
“And they were playing against the worst defense in the world!”
“So this would be the biggest shock of the season if they won here.”
“Newcastle will defend for so long, but then it will not be enough.”
Let’s hope Paul is wrong again – and Rafa and our players can spring a surprise and shock everybody!
We’ve done it before.
