Stan Collymore makes naked Tyne Bridge pledge if Newcastle United do this at Liverpool
Stan Collymore thinks he is on pretty safe ground.
The former Liverpool striker has gone for a comfortable 3-0 home win at Anfield today.
Can’t really argue with that, even Newcastle fans will be thinking along those lines.
Though of course you always hope for the unexpected.
Stan Collymore is counting on the very unexpected not happening.
As he has pledged on Saturday morning to do this if it all goes wrong (for Liverpool)…
Stan Collymore on Twitter:
“Anfield today for Liverpool v Newcastle.
“If Newcastle score 3 I’ll run across the Tyne Bridge naked singing Blaydon Races.”
Stan Collymore was actually with Liverpool the last two times Newcastle scored three, you might have actually heard about these games…
In 1996 Collymore scored twice, including the winner, in a 4-3 win.
Then in 1997 it was the same scoreline but Stan Collymore remained on the bench.
In total, Newcastle United have scored three or more away in the league at Liverpool a total of six times:
1907 – Liverpool 1 Newcastle 5
1909 – Liverpool 6 Newcastle 5
1925 – Liverpool 6 Newcastle 3
1950 – Liverpool 2 Newcastle 4
1996- Liverpool 4 Newcastle 3
1997 – Liverpool 4 Newcastle 3
Only Newcastle could score three goals or more away at Liverpool and still lose four of them!
Stan Collymore predictions for the weekend:
Liverpool 3 Newcastle 0
Brighton 1 Burnley 1
United 2 Leicester 2
Sheff U 1 Southampton 1
Spurs 1 Palace 0
Wolves 2 Chelsea 2
Norwich 1 City 4
Bournemouth 2 Everton 2
Watford 1 Arsenal 2
Villa 1 West Ham 2
