TTT Challenge

Tyne Tim v Dean Midas Maynard

A man by the name of Dean Maynard bravely predicted and indeed promised Toon fans that Newcastle United would win the Coca Cola Championship in the 2009/10 season. He is known for bringing his lucky charm to many football clubs and has worked with celebrities in Dancing On Ice, to XFactor to indeed the not so famous Sunderland Football Club.

Dean contacted Tyne Time with a note of thanks for keeping him updated on the latest Newcastle United developments both on and off the field and it was then, Tyne Time decided to put this guy up to the test and indeed run a challenge against him. The challenge was simple, for the remaining 13 games of the Coca Cola Championship, Dean would provide us with his predictions for the matches one at a time and we here at Tyne Time would also make an educated guess on the scoreline.

This has proved quite popular amongst Newcastle United fans and we thought we’d test out Dean’s lucky charm. So far so good for Newcastle United as a club, promoted the Premier League as Dean promised with just the title to wrap up. However, the table below will show whether Dean himself will take home the Tyne Time Tipping Challenge title as both him and ourselves battle it out for the coveted crown :D
