Pundit Cites The Absence Of The Toon Army In His Prediction For Tottenham At Newcastle



BBC pundit Mark Lawrenson has given his predictions for this weekend’s Premier League matches. He has Newcastle losing 2-0 to Spurs as St. James’ Park on Sunday.

Here is Lawro’s reasoning behind his prediction:

Newcastle badly need a lift and a win, but it is hard to see them getting either here. If fans were allowed into grounds then the Toon Army would be laying into the Magpies, and rightly so.

Tottenham have had their problems recently too, but they were decent in their win over Aston Villa last time out.

If Son Heung-min is fit then that will be a boost for Spurs, but I still think they will win this one without him.

Tottenham were eliminated from the Europa League after a 3-0 defeat at Dinamo Zagreb a few weeks ago. However, they followed that up with a solid 2-0 win at Aston Villa before the break. It seems the international break may have come at an opportune time for both clubs.

Lawrenson emphasizes the availability of Son Heung-min, who missed Tottenham’s 2-0 win at Aston Villa with a hamstring injury. Spurs have posted images of Son training during Thursday’s session so the South Korean could be available for Sunday.

Newcastle also could get a boost with the return of both Callum Wilson and Allan Saint-Maximin. Both players are back in training with Wilson potentially in line to start on Sunday.

While a win seems unlikely on Sunday, the minimum expectation is a fighting performance from the lads. If Newcastle fail to show up, as was the case at Brighton before the break, then the evidence is beyond reproach that Steve Bruce has lost this squad and needs to be replaced.

    trying to read thru the comments …

    seeing as BREAD is still a ongoing topic i thought id chuck this in the mix …

    The Origins of the Stottie
    The cake originated in the part of England just outside of Newcastle. The word “stottie” comes from the term “to stott,” which in the local Geordie vernacular means “to bounce.” The Geordie dialect has origins in the tongue spoken by the Anglo-Saxon settlers of England.

    The test for a good stottie is if you Chuck it from one end of the Tyne bridge and it reaches the other end with only one bounce.
