Paul Doyle, The Guardian - A combo of staunch defense from the home side and Newcastle's lack of scoring on the road has him thinking draw. His selection projection mirrors my ideal lineup for this game.
Toonsy, nufcblog.org - Worries over defensive selection and lobbies for Coloccini and Taylor in the middle. Predicts a draw.
Ed Harrison, nufcblog.com - Concerned about consistency. Says this is truly Alan Pardew's first game.
Sky Sports - "...a win over Liverpool in his first match did little to appease [Pardew's] critics." Predicts a 0-1 victory for the Toon.
Martin Lipton, MirrorFootball - Predicts a home win.
