Once Bitten Twice Shy – Pundit Predicts Liverpool vs Newcastle Result

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.”

“Prediction 3-0.”

Let’s hope Paul is wrong again – and Rafa and our players can spring a surprise and shock everybody!

We’ve done it before.

How Will Newcastle Fare At Liverpool?

    From NUFC.com

    “A message to Newcastle supporters from Jonathan Tudor, son of former SJP favourite, John Tudor:

    My dad is struggling with Alzheimer’s and it has been linked to his many years of heading the ball.

    We are working with the Astle foundation as many former players are going through this, but it is a very challenging road.

    Many of my dad’s greatest memories were at St. James’ Park and he still has a great fondness for the Geordies.

    Please could you help give him a massive memory with a rendition of his NUFC song “Hallelujah, John Tudor!” in the 10th minute at Anfield on Boxing Day.

    I know it’s a lot to ask in these days of turmoil and takeovers, but please remember those ex-players that still have to work today and who rated passion higher than their pay packet.

    Good luck to the Toon”

    As a club every team has to play each other twice . As fans we have a choice, so well done to all the travelling supporters going to Liverpool to watch our lads being given a football lesson.

    A draw tomorrow, away win at Watford and 3-0 win against Man Utd under the floodlights sets us up well for the second half of the season.

    I never rated john Tudor but maybe I’ve been a bit harsh on him.
    He seems a genuine nice guy and that’s the important thing.

    sadly not as we’ve all been taken down by a bad dose of the nasties.
    Still there’s a new bottle of Dalwhinnie Winter’s Gold to look forward to on Auld Year’s night, along with a few others. Funny how a wee dram works like rose tinted spectacles, now thinking 4-1 against the Mancs.

    That’s a strong defence if they all play to form. The scousers will have a job to break it down too often.

    Nickly i think Rafa’s frustration was also directed at fans for their reaction to the Fulham game.

    All the best Ed and all the bloggers.

    Just wondering if it’s only me that hasn’t heard Rafa once say it would be a miracle if we stayed up.

    The only interview I heard was Rafa saying it would be a miracle to finish as high as we did last season or something along those lines and the press have once again smashed it all over the place.

    I might be wrong but i just haven’t heard him say it.

    The crowd will give the new guy 0 games before they are on his back
    We cant even spend big to save the mess were in as nobody with two brain cells to rub together will sign for us

    It will also anger the fans even more as Rafa wasnt give a penny

    Theres no happy ending to any of this,were another MA gamble

    Hope he ends up in prison

    Booing isn’t helpful, but I think that after a performance like that, at home, no shots on target, against a team that hadn’t kept a clean sheet in twenty matches and are bottom, Rafa will at least understand and share in the fans frustrations. He needs some attacking reinforcements to keep us up, and to be able to add decent value to the match day ticket. I think his frustrations are solely with the owner, who despite receiving the windfall of the telly money, presided over a 20 million pound trading profit last window, leaving us with less firepower second season back, than we had even first, when we of course failed to bring in enough quality too and did amazingly well to finish tenth.

    Actually ” to keep us up” is bordering on overly dramatic. Rafa will probably keep us up without any reinforcements, which seems to be what Ashley is banking on. It surely isn’t the best way to use his great skill set though, and certainly not from a fan’s perspective.
