Mark Lawrenson Does Newcastle United A Favour For Once

10 years ago

Our old mate Mark Lawrenson is infamous for (amongst countless other things!) his match predictions on the BBC Sport website.

If they have managed to pass you by so far, maybe the best way to sum them up is that you would now be living in a cardboard box if you’d religiously placed money on all his selections throughout the season.

With barely concealed dislike of Newcastle he very rarely gives us a prayer of getting anything from each match and some of his write-ups are laughable – the one before the home match with Liverpool, one of the most ridiculously biased pieces by somebody paid to give an allegedly…unbiased view.

This weekend he has Newcastle United to draw and both Arsenal & Spurs to win, so going on Lawrenson’s past form that will be us in third then, result!

You can also expect Manchester City to win the title…but only after both them and Manchester United lose (‘Lawro’ has them both to win).

So it will be massive thanks to Mark Lawrenson when we finish third….I would have been really worried if he’d tipped us to get anything at Goodison Park.
