Pundit Predicts Misery For Newcastle At Bramall Lane



BBC pundit Mark Lawrenson has made his predictions for this round of Premier League fixtures. He is predicting Newcastle to lose 2-1 at Sheffield United.

Here is some of Lawro’s reasoning behind his prediction:

Newcastle are on a poor run themselves right now, taking only two points from their past six games and going out of the FA Cup at Arsenal.

I know Newcastle don’t do all-out attack whoever they play but surely they won’t just sit back at Bramall Lane? I wouldn’t understand that, because this is obviously a very winnable game for them too.

I don’t think there will be much in it, but I am going with the Blades here. They are bound to break their duck in the league at some stage, and at least they will have a bit of confidence after the weekend.

I know people will say it was ‘only’ Bristol Rovers they beat, but a win’s a win when you are in a situation like they are.

Lawrenson seems convinced that Sheffield’s FA Cup win over the weekend will spur them on to pick up their first win in the league. The Blades have a tough three matches after Tuesday with games against Tottenham, Manchester United, and Manchester City to close out January.

Bruce spoke about his determination to play higher up the pitch after the FA Cup loss to Arsenal. There was a genuine commitment to do that on Saturday. So hopefully, we won’t see Newcastle sit back at Bramall Lane tomorrow.

Newcastle have scored just once in the past five matches. While Sheffield got three goals (though one was a Bristol Rovers own goal) over the weekend, they’ve managed just 8 in the league all season. So this could be a low scoring affair tomorrow.

Needless to say a defeat at Sheffield United would be disastrous. I don’t even want to entertain that notion right now. So let’s hope Newcastle can put in a performance and keep Sheffield in the realm of the winless after tomorrow’s match.

How Will Newcastle Fare At Sheffield United On Tuesday?

    I wonder what odds you would have got at the start of the season, for Sheffield United to end the season with 10 or less points…

    Moises Caicedo deal. Negotiations are progressing between Independiente del Valle and Brighton. They’re leading the race, confirmed – also Newcastle were trying in the last hours. Work in progress for the ‘work permit’ too.

    Some serious stirring still I see.

    Lead by example that’s what I’m trying now.instead of battling.

    What is the definition of insanity?

    Mund I apologised to you again earlier, can you lead by example and please finally apologise to me? That would really show a change of direction and avoiding battles and starting afresh 🙂

    the Dennis wise scouting summary of moises Caicedo – the 19yr old CM we are losing out to Brighton for – if the rumours are true. Which they probably arent as he isnt on loan..

    I don’t know what I’m apologising for? If it’s because I think you are an alt of another poster it’s hard because it was an opinion and at the time everyone but me was carrying it on as I didn’t care to debate about it and tbf we hardly interact with one another so those arguments we have supposed to of had I don’t understand.

    You have had some choice words to say about me when I went away but it’s a blog and people have there views and opinions it can’t be helped.

    If I’ve caused you upset with anything I’ve said or done then I apologise and I mean it, sorry.

    It was for repeatedly claiming I was someone I wasn’t, even when evidence said otherwise. Regardless of your opinion on it, I did tell you multiple times it wasn’t nice so the right thing to do was apologise. I know I’ve had choice words and that’s also my opinion which I stand by, but likewise I apologised to you for any potential upset I’ve caused and for an ongoing drama whatever you want to call it lol

    I accept your apology though and we can end it here and put this stupid thing to bed, so thank you I appreciate it.

    I think it`s time to put a full lockdown in place for at least a month, the covid figures just keep going up and up no matter what tiers or restrictions an area finds itself in.
    Watching the news tonight was not good viewing. Something must be done sharpish, or this year will be the same as the last one.

    How’s it going my man? 🙂

    You have always knew me as me if that makes sense? Lol

    Others like to paint a bad picture of me and drive that hate but I’ve always tried to bring positivity to the blog and for the fans reading it but I did lose my way and fell guilty of a lot of it and can’t argue otherwise but that isn’t me that’s somebody else, so in hindsight I’m ashamed of getting into such childish spats as I’m a grown man with kids and it’s unacceptable on here and it’s unacceptable to me and I let myself down.

    But onwards and upwards and just try to show that’s not me and lead by example

    I respect you on here more than most mate and you have always said it how it is and for that I’ll always be grateful.

    Shame on me tho for letting the passion get the better of me and since I stood back and looked I thought what am I playing at, getting in such avoidable situations.

    Back to the positive lad I was mate.

    You’re a top man in my eyes CH

    You are certainly the top gent on the blog, you always have a good word to say, in fact i don`t think i have heard you call anyone on here, not in an aggressive way, if you do take umbrage it`s more like a quick clip around the lughole for the offender lol.

    Yes ive always knew you, and never judged you in a negative way my friend, its good to see both you and Geordietom back on the blog, as far as iam concerned we are all on the same side as Newcastle fans, i love talking to all Newcastle fans on here, and i can honestly say ive never had a problem with anyone on this blog, we might not always agree on everything, but we can at least show each other respect and agree to differ.

    Well said magic and we don’t live in a fantasy world do we where everything is sweetness and light. We just have to try and not let it boil over to the nastiness and having the last word which I know I’ve been guilty of and we won’t all get along but we are all Newcastle United fans so at least we can start with that as a pedestal of respect.

    You must have missed the directive.

    You have to read through the last ten threads, find any comments that may be even mildly offensive and write out a 500 word report on each of them and send them to the blog moderator. Which may even be you as you were last on!
