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?

    Did you watch Football matters with Steve Wraith last Friday? He had Keith Patterson on the show, it was very good.
    He gave very positive vibes about the takeover.

    Hopefully GWH ๐Ÿ™‚

    Iโ€™ve got it all crossed, absolutely everything for the last 8 month!!! The missus is fuming ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I hope we do have some update this month as arbitration is going to the next stage and would expect to hear something.

    One of the big things I have been waiting for is some sort of agreement between Saudi and the Qataris as without that the door would of remained closed and then we hear the Saudis making semi peace with them with opening the borders and the airways. We then hear that beiN is to start to be reinstated across Saudi which is huge and with those developments and Ben Jacobs speaking some sense and positivity around it for once tells me that huge obstacles have been removed and now doors that where closed will now be open.

    Time will tell mate but everyday is a step closer IMO

    Zorro, whose name in Spanish means โ€œfox,โ€ was likely based on Mexican folktales of a noble bandit who fought on behalf of the peasantry and indigenous peoples.

    Captain choice is a nightmare.

    Kane or Son against Fulham, Bruno against Burnley, KDB against Brighton(Peps played him up top recently), or our very own Wilson who could be chomping at the bit hopefully.

    The blog.
    What a downer.
    When is there going to be a little bit of mild bickering to cheer us up.
    Not to heavy.

    I think the fact that statements have been required to be made about the gadgies on here getting a bit radgie is an indication of how frustrated our support is. The failed takeover and the abject performances on the pitch have messed with most of us. If we had a new owner and could see a football strategy in place we would all be sweetness and light! If we donโ€™t get this before next season I fear the worst.
