Pundit Sees Newcastle Achieving Their Aims Against Bournemouth On Wednesday


BBC pundit Mark Lawrenson has given his predictions for this week’s Premier League fixtures. He’s going with a 0-0 draw for Newcastle at Bournemouth on Wednesday.

Here’s his prediction in full:

Newcastle didn’t turn up in the first half against Manchester City and it was probably just as well there were no fans inside St James’ Park because they would have been howling about that.

They were better in the second half but there’s still no way that they could say they deserved to go through and they did not really even have a proper go at City.

Staying up was the aim for the season, though, and they probably need one more point to be sure of doing that.

I think they will get it on Wednesday. Magpies boss Steve Bruce will play his best team this time and Bournemouth have lost both of their games since the restart and are all over the place.

The only positive thing for the Cherries so far is that everyone else around them, apart from Brighton, have not picked up many points either.

Lawrenson has done quite well in his Newcastle predictions this season. He had five straight results correct before the coronavirus struck. He ended up amending his earlier prediction of a win against Sheffield United to a draw, and that snapped his streak.

However, he’s got the last two results dead on with the draw against Villa and the defeat to Manchester City.

A draw will have Newcastle reach that magical 40 point total with six games remaining all but ensuring safety. But in all likelihood, we are safe now sitting 12 points above our opponents this Wednesday.

Bournemouth are currently in the final relegation place but, as Lawro says, despite losing two on the trot since the league resumed, have not lost much ground. The issue with them is they’ve not gained any either.

With Brighton picking up four points from their two games, it’s looking like a five club battle to escape the drop for the remainder of the season.

Bournemouth have done well to remain in the league since coming up five years ago. But this time, they are in a real battle for survival.

Like we said against Aston Villa, Bournemouth are desperate to get three points, so Newcastle will have to put in an improved performance to get a result.

    I was driving past a terrace row today and saw a for sale sign on a house, a sign under it read “2 Garages to rear”

    I said to our lass, poor fella has to sell his house to bring up his garages

    Really do need this takeover to go through now, to give the new owners sufficient time to bring in a quality DOF and 3 or 4 top players in the right positions, and if they have time, and it is now running out, a new manager, so we are set from the start.

    You have to think this might well continue to drag on though and that there is now a reasonable chance we’ll be going in to next season with pretty much the same squad, manager and even owner, although I think the bid is a wholly committed one and the EPL will have to be very resolute if they are going to knock it back.

    Very much hoping for an announcement this week, otherwise I’ll begin to be concerned for next term.

    A man found a mustache hidden underneath a water valve in his house…
    He messaged his old room mate who had moved out 5 months earlier to see if he knew anything about the mustache as the compartment to reach the valve was in his old room.

    The ex room mate replied “You found it!, My secret stache!”

    A Scottish lass inquired to a man wearing a kilt “Is it true what that say about what’s underneath a man’s kilt?”
    “Place your hand beneath and see for yourself’ replied he. She obliged and cried out “Sir, that’s gruesome!” He said “If you place your hand back again, you’ll find it’s gruesome more!”…

    hope no one takes offence to this one …

    He probably deserved it, look how is is here.
    It wouldn’t take much for some troll to fly off the handle, and he took it serious.

    How many times have you been in an online punch up? Nothing ever comes of it, just folk gobbin off cos they are annonymous.

    He’s clever, no doubt, but to waste your talents by using intellect as a weapon to tease, wind up and pi$$ people off isn’t clever.
