Forget Lawro – Here’s Your Weekend Predictions

Has International football died? I think it has. It’s so far down the football food chain these days I wouldn’t even know where to send the wreath. Thankfully the world’s greatest league competition is back with a vengeance this weekend. Hurrah!

West Ham vs Manchester United

West Ham could get a result here. Loose talk but the Hammers are doing a good impersonation of a football team at the moment. United are struggling at the back and form counts for plenty when you’re fighting your way out of relegation. 1-1 is 11/2.

Birmingham vs Bolton

Brum are in trouble. This of course isn’t an exclusive. Shocking nosedive in form ever since the coach pulled out of the Wembley car park. Bolton aren’t having everything their own way but they will travel expecting to do more than just nick this. Birmingham are running out of games. A single point will be almost as depressing as none here. 2-1 is 17/2.

Everton vs Aston Villa

If David Moyes has felt uncomfortable this season, then Gerard Houllier has spent the bulk of it in the foetal position weeping. Villa have gone from courting disaster to marrying it. I cannot see Villa doing a job on the Toffees tomorrow and anything less will send Villans into meltdown. 1-1 is 11/2.

Newcastle vs Wolves

Another relaxed, fun game in the offing, then. Toon feel that they are in the wilderness, but compared with Wolverhampton Wanderers they are a travelling First Class, sipping champers whilst having a foot-rub. 2-1 is 15/2.

Stoke vs Chelsea

Poor Stoke is all I can say. I’m not a Chelsea fan by a long way, but they need to win every game from hereon in. It’s that simple. Can They win this one? Can Fernando Torres actually get a pass off hie so called team mates? Who knows, but if there was ever a game to ‘Score From A Throw In!’ this was it. 1-3 is 3/1.

West Brom vs Liverpool

The Rovers Return, eh? The Pool will be looking to underline for once and for all that they have moved on at some pace since King Kenny’s appointment. My best guess is that Roy will be singing. ‘Please Welease Me Let Me Go’ come full time. Those of a nervous disposition look away now. 0-3 is 22/1.

Wigan vs Tottenham

To many all …Yid eyes are on the Real Madrid game. But don’t forget, what has been a cracking Champions League debut can only be replicated now by either winning that competition outright or securing 4th spot in the Premiership. Wigan will be hard work. Many Spurs players will be looking to play against Madrid. 0-2 is 10/1.

Arsenal vs Blackburn

Arsenal’s story this season has made for harrowing reading. No trophies and lost of whining. Blackburn might just be the tonic Gooners were after. The Rovers’ form is rotten and it’s difficult to believe that they will improve it at the Emirates. Can Blackburn frustrate Arsenal? Almost certainly. Will they? Excuses and time are both running out Arsene. 1-1 is 10/1.

Fulham vs Blackpool

Blackpool are twisting and writhing. The Kiss Me Quick hats are lost, their tummies are beginning to ache from a diet of hot dogs and candyfloss. Time to go home and regroup. Fulham are less desperate for the points but Craven Cottage won’t be a friendly fixture. 3-1 is 10/1.

Manchester City vs Sunderland

City are rapidly earning a reputation as a team that do not routinely play exciting football. Sunderland, despite Benty’s exit have been scoring a few goals. My prediction here is that Steve Bruce will shake Roberto Mancini into action and this could, aside from should be a crackerjack fixture. 3-2 is 25/1.
