Sky Sports Pundit Predicts Newcastle Will Make Best Ever Start Under Rafa Benitez

We talked earlier this morning about how can the second game of the season be a must-win match.

Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson calls it a massive match.

We have to remember that in the two full seasons we have had under Rafa Benitez Newcastle have done very well but started both seasons losing the first two games.

So if we get what Paul predicts at Cardiff on Saturday – a 1-1 draw – we will have made out best start ever under Rafa Benitez.

At least after two games.

Paul Merson – Sky Sports Pundit – predicts a draw

So there are different ways to looks at things.

Here’s what Paul has said about the early kick-off game on Saturday in South Wales:

“This is a massive football match, even so early in the season.”

“Cardiff failed to score at Bournemouth, who let in goals for fun, but I think this will be a hard game for Newcastle.”

“Newcastle lost at home to Tottenham and they need to make sure they don’t lose this one, too.”

“PAUL predicts: 1-1”

The other way to look at it is the three games after Saturday are against Chelsea (H), Manchester City (A – almost certain 3 points), and Arsenal (H) – which will be very tough.

It would be excellent if we can get the win on Saturday.

    Gawd give me strength. Giving Alan Pardew an eight year deal proves that Ashley wanted top half finishes. What was I saying about your ceaseless bullshit Jibbers!!!

    Made a profit from player transfers
    Got hundreds of millions from Sky
    12 players left leaving us with the smallest squad in memory

    But all is well as MA is keeping all of the cash just sitting in the account ?
    Or he used it to buy HOF

    Going off his past actions we all know where it all went dont we,the guy has been proven in court to be a liar but in this case were to believe hes our financial savior ?

    Im guessing he pays a firm to manage places like this to stop organized dissent from brewing,its been proven he dont like it

    Its obvious Jib is either not a toon fan or is payed to protect MAs point of view and stop unrest brewing

    As if it didnt get to him there simply would be the kind of thing you see on here.

    Jail for Ashley
    Giving Alan Pardew an eight year deal as a reward
    for getting us 5th means that Ashley wanted us to
    finish near the bottom – in your world !!!!!

    “Mister Tuff, there’s a big fat ‘if’ in there, right after the larger printed FACT. That ‘if’ means you’re speculating as much as everyone else, so to present it as fact is a little skewed.”

    Nothing at all skewed in my post FACT.
    I used the word “if” as I have not seen any of the documents/accounts etc involved in the HMRC investigation.

    Are you suggesting that HMRC are speculating/skewed about their allegations of fraud – and have as consequence committed perjury in the High Court in Leeds.

    I think I’ve just answered the fact query – there can facts which I have not personally witnessed/seen.
