Cascarino On Newcastle And Hull

Cascarino On Newcastle And Hull

Tony Cascarino, pundit for the New Football Pools says Newcastle have it all to do and feels they wont be able to do it, so hull survive.

"I was amazed that Newcastle were beaten by Fulham at the weekend. Not because Roy Hodgson hasn't put together a very good side but because of the situation. If this was any other weekend I would have fancied Fulham to have taken the points but with a win all but securing Newcastle's future, I thought they'd do enough. Especially when you consider they had 52,000 crazy Geordies backing them and that they'd beaten Middlesbrough in the previous game.

The problem for Alan Shearer and Newcastle now is they face a tough trip to Villa Park to face an Aston Villa side that won't be doing them any favours. Martin O'Neill will send his side out to go for the jugular and to beat Newcastle as he will end the season on a relative high.
Aston Villa are far superior to Newcastle and they also possess the required ammunition to beat them this Sunday, particularly aerially. The Newcastle defence has seriously struggled all season from balls into their box and unfortunately they'll be facing possibly two of the best forwards in the air this weekend. Both big John Carew and Emile Heskey are powerful forwards and they should prove to be an absolute nightmare for the Magpies defence. I really can't see Newcastle getting a result from what I've seen of them. They would have to pull out a performance they haven't been able to show all season and they just don't look capable of that.

Hull on the other hand have a chance against Manchester United. The champions are likely to put out a 2nd string side which gives the Tigers more chance than they possibly would have had if the title wasn't already in the bag. The fact that United won't be at full strength is a present that Hull need to take advantage of. Of course every member of a United 2nd string side would more than likely walk into the Hull side but the Tigers chances of survival are still far better now. If you'd told Phil Brown that Hull's destiny would be in their own hands after last weekend he would've been overjoyed. However, they must consider themselves very lucky. After all, to be in this situation after the poor run they've had is fortunate to say the least."

Looks like Manchester United are going to give Shearer another kick in the balls when they let Hull win.

SweetLeftFoot - That's against the rules and in that eventuality, the game would go under investigation and the toon may have grounds to sue Man U to the tune of £50m. Tony Cascarino is going by stats alone. Man U's side looks likely to contain Tevez, Nani, Ferdinand plus a host of other up and coming youngsters - so i'd say it's a safe bet that Hull will concede a few goals as Tevez, Nani and Ferdinand attempt to prove themselves fit enough for the Champions League final !
