PremierLeague-News.Com - The 73-year-old has backed Eddie Howe to steer Newcastle to European football
PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Neil Warnock believes Newcastle United will shock the Premier League and clinch a European spot this season. Optimism on Tyneside ahead of a new season has rarely been higher, with the £300million Saudi-backed takeover generating excitement among supporters. The Magpies have not qualified for Europe since 2011-12 when Alan Pardew claimed fifth place - the highest finish under Mike Ashley. Eventual finalists Benfica knocked Newcastle out at the quarter-final stage the following season and Toon supporters’ passports have been gathering dust ever since. However, former Middlesbrough manager Warnock - who called time on a 55-year career in April - has backed Eddie Howe’s men to upset the apple cart. The 73-year-old thinks Newcastle will nick sixth spot, ahead of Manchester United. TAKE PART: Ambition, trust, atmosphere - 'The Big Newcastle United Forum' Pep Guardiola is tipped to retain his Premier League crown at Manchester City, whereas Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea complete Warnock’s top four. Arsenal are the final side predicted to finish above Newcastle.
