BBC Sport pundit with weird Newcastle United narrative

Some fascinating feedback from this BBC Sport pundit on Newcastle United.

Chris Sutton talking forward of Tuesday evening’s match at Blackburn.

An opportunity for Eddie Howe and his gamers to take United into the FA Cup quarter-finals.

Stating 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 – 26 February 2024:

“I scored in an FA Cup tie for Blackburn towards Newcastle a number of years in the past – it was a beautiful end, however we ended up dropping in a replay, and I can see the Magpies getting by this time too.

“Blackburn drew on the weekend within the ‘Chris Sutton derby’ towards my first membership, Norwich, however they’re but to win in 4 video games underneath new supervisor John Eustace, and I don’t see him getting a primary victory right here.

“Newcastle boss Eddie Howe actually wants the FA Cup now, to recuperate a bit of religion with the followers after some disappointing outcomes, together with their heavy defeat by Arsenal on Saturday.

“Howe’s aspect ought to win, as a result of they’ve the superior gamers and I truly really feel as if they may run away with this one a bit bit.

“Prediction: Blackburn 1 Newcastle 3”

I discover this Newcastle United narrative from the BBC Sport pundit very weird.

Chris Sutton claiming Eddie Howe wants ‘to recuperate a bit of religion with the followers after some disappointing outcomes’ for Newcastle United.

Now I do know, the BBC Sport man isn’t alone with this type of NUFC narrative, certainly a good few Newcastle supporters have additionally gone down this weird approach excessive route.

Earlier than dropping away to title chasing Arsenal, Eddie Howe’s aspect had been unbeaten the earlier six weeks, choosing up three wins and two attracts.

While within the 4 away video games earlier than the Arsenal one, Newcastle United had gained all 4, Eddie Howe’s aspect defeating Sunderland, Fulham, Aston Villa and Forest, scoring 11 targets within the quartet of away victories and conceding solely three.

I’m not claiming that Newcastle have been at their greatest and that there isn’t any room for enchancment, nonetheless, it’s laughable the way in which that Chris Sutton and others wish to painting the final month and a half or in order some form of catastrophe for NUFC.

Scoring loads of targets and outcomes enhancing general, now getting quite a few key gamers returning in the end from usually prolonged absences, Newcastle United have the potential to complete this season strongly, beginning with hopefully making it 5 wins of their final six away video games, when taking up Blackburn tomorrow.

Additionally predicting FA Cup fifth spherical matches for BBC Sport this week is Kaiser Chiefs bassist and Leeds fan Simon Rix:

“Newcastle actually need to do one thing within the FA Cup this season.

“They’re out of Europe in addition to dropping within the Carabao Cup quarter-finals, and they don’t seem to be doing so nicely within the league.

“So, I can see them placing out a powerful aspect and I don’t see Blackburn dealing with it. 

“Prediction: Blackburn 0 Newcastle 2”

Hopefully this BBC Sport pair of pundits are at the least right with their forecasted consequence.

Blackburn are struggling badly and solely 4 factors above the relegation zone within the Championship, just one win of their final 13 league matches.
