Beware Newcastle – although they aren’t a good team

TCotteeTony Cottee has warned the Irons they will need to be on their game on Sunday at Newcastle if they are not to “get walloped.”

Writing in his column on London24.com he claims this really is not the game we would have wanted to end our season.

He said: Fifty thousand Geordies and them with something to play for. If Hull City lose, then Newcastle will be safe, but they will not be looking to rely on that and have to concentrate on getting the result they need on the final day.”

He added that the Irons will have to match their concentration. We can’t play it like a testimonial game because we will get walloped. They are not a good team and they are lacking in belief at the moment, so we

Cottee – a regular supporter of manager Sam Allardyce – refuses to make predictions on his future preferring instead to use the worst cliche in football: “Be careful what you wish for!”

  1. ahahah…. noooooooooooo! Cotte too… “Be careful what you wish for!”… lol Mr Cottee (one of those so called “experts”) some months ago predicted 60 points at the end of this season… we should listen to him this time too… he doesn’t make mistakes… lol

  2. Mr 60 points using canchaz words,who cares what happens against Newcastle I don’t,
    Just interested in 1 thing and it’s not what spoonie is singing in hid padded cell or what Kevin is doing with grandad,
    Cottee if you are a pundit get off the fence and say the words we all know you want to say but are scared we won’t for get,
    BFS should get another contract, said it for you Cottee now go and sit in your bunker and forget everything you learnt and stood for when you were at our club,

  3. Lmao,used to love TC as a player but he has splinters in his arse when it comes to being a pundit.He said give Hippo a new two year contract in Feb & we would reach 60+ pts.Enough said,all you need to know about TC the expert pundit.

  7. TC was a great player for us,loved his partnership with Frankie Mac,but im afraid i dont like him as a pundit,he is a little bleh,watered down opinions,splinter butt,lol,as for Newcastle being dangerous,they shouldnt be,but im sure we will make them look like a top 6 team on Sunday 😉
