Bobby Moncur: Newcastle are not safe yet – and I fear the worst at Liverpool tonight

FEARFUL ... Bobby Moncur.

NEWCASTLE United legend Bobby Moncur has admitted he fears the worst ahead of the club’s trip to Liverpool tonight – and he feels the Magpies are not safe from relegation yet.

Moncur – who was captain when Newcastle won the 1969 Inter-Cities Fairs Cup, the club’s last major trophy – is still involved with United in an ambassadorial role.

And he feels John Carver’s side may have their work cut out when they take on Liverpool at Anfield tonight.

When asked if he was looking forward to the game, Moncur told Liverpool’s official website: “‘Looking forward’ might not be the right answer, bearing in mind that we haven’t been in the best of form, but I’m looking forward to the occasion and hopefully I’ll see some of my old pals that I played against.

“It’s going to be a tough one for Newcastle United, I believe.

“Technically they’re not safe yet, and somewhere along the line we need a couple of good results.

“It would be great to get one at Liverpool – that would be a real achievement.

“If we got a win there, that would feel a bit like six points, to be honest, but it will be a difficult game bearing in mind that John Carver has had to deal with a massive amount of injuries, and the team picks itself.”
