BBC Sport pundit together with his new Newcastle United evaluation – Getting it proper?

Some attention-grabbing feedback from this BBC Sport pundit on Newcastle United.

Chris Sutton talking forward of Saturday’s recreation on the Metropolis Floor.

An opportunity for Eddie Howe and his gamers to try to get a invaluable win, or on the very least make it 4 in a row (in all competitions) unbeaten.

Declaring to BBC Sport what he sees because the related conditions of the 2 golf equipment, is Chris Sutton getting it proper this time?

Chris Sutton speaking to BBC Sport – 8 February 2024:

“I actually don’t know tips on how to choose Newcastle in the intervening time, good or unhealthy.

“They received such a formidable end result away from residence in opposition to Aston Villa however ended up having to battle again for a degree at residence to Luton a number of days later.

“Eddie Howe’s aspect are conceding plenty of targets – together with when Chris Wooden scored a hat-trick for Nottingham Forest in opposition to them at St James’ Park a number of weeks in the past – and they’re one other workforce the place I simply don’t know what we’re going to get.

“Forest wanted penalties to get previous Bristol Metropolis within the FA Cup this week and they’re nonetheless ready for his or her first win of 2024.

“The plain end result here’s a draw, so I’m going to go along with that.

“Prediction: Nottingham Forest 2 Newcastle 2”

So what to make of what the BBC Sport man has stated?

Chris Sutton is half proper when he says Nottingham Forest haven’t received a match in 2024, they haven’t within the Premier League however do have two victories this calendar 12 months within the FA Cup.

In seven video games (all competitions), Forest haven’t received any of them within the 90 minutes. After solely drawing in opposition to them initially, Forest wanted additional time to beat League One Blackpool within the third spherical of the FA Cup. Then comparable in opposition to Championship aspect Bristol Metropolis, a draw within the first match after which simply final night time, Forest needing additional time and penalties to lastly go into the fifth spherical.

Chris Sutton predicts a draw for Forest v Newcastle and positively Eddie Howe have to be pondering that if Forest haven’t managed to win any of their final seven video games in 90 minutes, together with 4 instances in opposition to decrease league opposition, then a degree have to be the very least NUFC will hope for.

The BBC Sport man fails to say fairly a number of issues, akin to Forest prime scorer Chris Sutton out with a hamstring damage and the truth that Forest have had two robust video games to play since Newcastle performed on Saturday. Final night time properly over two hours of soccer plus penalties, so quickly earlier than NUFC on Saturday. In eight days Forest star man Gibbs-White has performed each minute of three robust video games in opposition to Arsenal, Bournemouth and Bristol Metropolis, tough to suppose he can be something like 100 per cent and obtainable to start out in opposition to Newcastle.

Chris Sutton additionally omits to say that Newcastle United are literally on a run of three away wins in a row, 3-0 at Sunderland within the FA Cup and 2-0 at Fulham in the identical competitors, then that 3-1 at Villa within the Premier League.

These final 5 matches (all competitions) seeing three wins, a draw and one defeat for Eddie Howe’s aspect.

Main 2-1 in opposition to Man Metropolis till the 74th minute and so unfortunate to not get even a degree with a Man Metropolis aim in added time. Then while the draw in opposition to Luton was disappointing, the very fact they’d misplaced solely one in all their final eight video games and their most up-to-date two matches had seen a 2-1 win away at Everton and a 4-0 thrashing of Brighton, are certainly price mentioning!

As is the truth that Eddie Howe’s workforce had the character to come back again from 4-2 all the way down to get a draw within the remaining quarter of the match.

Conceding 4 at residence in opposition to Luton is clearly noteworthy and never nice to see, nevertheless, loads positives in these final 5 and a half weeks for Newcastle United, eight targets conceded in 5 video games however with 14 scored, NUFC can be eager to make it 4 away wins in a row on the Metropolis Floor and I’m feeling very optimistic that this would be the end result.
