Gary Neville’s recent comments have done little to get him in the good books of NUFC fans, and the Sky pundit is at it again this week, with him predicting Luton will beat us 2-1 in the FA Cup at St James’ Park on Saturday.
After branding our performance in the 0-1 defeat to Man City as ’embarrassing’ last month, it’s fair to say the 42-year-old isn’t the most popular man on Tyneside at the moment and this alternative prediction won’t help.
Here’s what the ex-Man Utd full-back wrote in his Class of 92 column on Sky Sports’ website today, submitting these Super Six predictions for a selection of FA Cup games this weekend:

We will be almost certainly play our second team and Luton will be bang up for it, but it’s almost as if Neville is trying to wind up Newcastle fans – who have been hounding him for a while now after his criticism of our set up against City last month.
His comments did make a rod for his own back and his commentary across that City game really did make it seem as if he had something against us.
Happy new year to you all. Even those Newcastle fans still giving it some ?!

Here’s hoping we prove him wrong at the weekend!
