Lawro predicts Spurs to beat Newcastle


Harry Redknapp - Tottenham Hotspur News

BBC football pundit Mark Lawrenson has predicted that Tottenham Hotspur will beat Newcastle United on Sunday.

He told BBC Sport Online: “Newcastle are still unbeaten this season, although they have had the rub of the green a couple of times against QPR and, more recently, Wolves.

“I am just wondering whether this might be the game where their luck runs out and I quite fancy Tottenham here, especially because Spurs will be buoyed by beating Arsenal in their last outing.

“Let’s not be too hard on Newcastle, though, because their central defensive pairing of Fabricio Coloccini and Steven Taylor does look very strong, and Yohan Cabaye has impressed me in midfield. Tim Krul is clearly going to be a top-class goalkeeper too.

“But I see this as being the game which might make Newcastle boss Alan Pardew re-evaluate their season after an excellent start. They are not a top four side and, if they finish in the top half of the table with the squad they have got, then they have had an outstanding season.

“For me, Harry Redknapp’s side still look the most likely to get fourth place, and I would expect them to underline that by winning at St James’ Park.

“Prediction: 0-2”

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Lawrenson would say that!
    He has never predicted a Newcastle win as he has a very poor relationship there! every time he is at St James as a pundit the club & fans mock him for the idiot he is!

  2. oh no everytime lawro predicts spurs to lose we win so I am worried spurs fan. billythefish dont worry about lawro he annoys all fans apart from the ones that support liverpool ….!!

  3. this should be an easy 3 points to spurs!!!!!!!!!!! lawro totally right just think it gonna be 4 or 5 to spurs without reply coys

  4. "…and if memory serves he predicted we'd beat the Arse, so it's not all bad!"

    Doesn't count though really… Everyone is beating Arsenal :-)

    Lawro is the most depressing man, he's probably sitting in his living room chair sighing at this very moment. He always backs Newcastle to lose and he's usually wrong. He's about as reliable as Paul Merson…

    Anyway, it'll be a tight game, but I fancy the Toon to snatch it.


  5. I hate Newcastle and their famns who thjought they were hard till the Hammers showed em whats what. We'll lose though by 3-1. It hurts me to say that but thats my honest opinion.

  6. This is my prediction Newcastle have gone seven games without defeat you can only run 121klm for six games.Then you start to free fall down the league and if you hit the bottom Ashley sacks the manager and fans scream for is blood. I no you are going too say we are unbeaten in seven games but last week you really should have drawn or lost and you could see you had to work overtime 122 klm covered and if the ref had not bean so kind you could have lost . We ran 114 klm Arsenal ran 119 klm and we won it should have bean more so even though you chase the ball more we will do more and win 4-1 o see a sending off for Newcastle Tiote and a PENALTY FOR Spurs Bale Van Defoe Adebeyor yes he will play

  7. I’d be more confident going back a few years but unfortunately we’re miles behind spurs now. They’re one of THE best sides in the league right now and will definitely finish top 4 and if I’m honest I agree with Lawro, even though he is a twat. Spurs to win 2-0 and us to finish with 10 men. We have a good record this season, but we haven’t played anyone remotely the same class as spurs yet. Modric, Bale, Parker, Lennon, Van der Vaart, Defoe, Adebayor… Please don’t embarrass us at home spurs! I’d take a draw now!!!
