Paul Merson doesn’t seem to be a favorite of Newcastle United unless we are winning.
And he blundered after we had played so well at Huddersfield to win 1-0 and said he was certain we would beat bottom-of-the-league club Fulham at home the following Saturday.
We didn’t and since that dreary 0-0 draw we were hammered 4-0 at Anfield on Boxing Day.
Merson predicted a 3-0 win for the Reds so he was close.
Paul Merson – predicts another defeat for Newcastle – let’s hope he’s wrong
The game at Watford tomorrow will be easier than the Liverpool game for our lads, but unless we can play a lot better than the last two games we could suffer yet another defeat.
This is what has said about the game on Sky Sports:
“Newcastle were very poor against Liverpool, and I don’t think they even had a shot against Fulham.”
“They will make it hard for Watford, they just don’t score any goals, and they will get punished by a Watford side with plenty of firepower going forward.”
“Newcastle have the players capable of causing damage, but this isn’t the game for them.
The very last thing we need is yet another defeat so we are hoping for at least a draw.
If we can get a win in this game it will be our first double of the season.
We beat Watford at home 1-0 in our first win of the season in our 11th game, after Watford had missed a number of chances in the first half.
Here’s hoping we can get something out of this game.
