Premiership Predictions…(4-5/1/2011)

We apologise for missing the last three or four rounds of predictions while celebrating the Christmas/ New Year’s break, but now were back to guess wrong yet again!..

Ronaldinho to Blackburn?… surely not!

TUESDAY

Blackpool v Birmingham – Blackpool continue to defy expectations, free-scoring beyond their quota - with ideas above their station. As for Birmingham their top scorer is Midfielder Craig Gardner (5) which says a lot…this is a must win for them and I have a sneaky feeling they might get one. 1-2

Fulham v West Brom – Although West Brom have played some good, attractive football they run the risk of being sucked into the bottom three is they fail to sure up the defence. Fulham know they need a win and if they aim to exploit West Brom they stand a chance of winning, it’s a shame they can’t. 1-1

Man Utd v Stoke – Do I really need to explain this.?  Manchester United are pretty much unbeatable at home and they won’t lose this…but how much will they win by? 3-1

WEDNESDAY

Arsenal v Man City – Very interesting, very, very interesting. Both teams are desperate to stay within touching distance of Manchester United, but both teams have a knack of having a bad day (you just never know when it is) Call it a hunch; I think Arsenal will take this 3-2

Aston Villa v Sunderland – Sunderland are currently 6th in the League because of their fantastic home form, their away form on the other hand is, how shall I put this…crap! If Aston Villa attack this then I have no qualms about them taking victory. 2-1

Blackburn v Liverpool – It’s highly unlikely that Blackburn will have sealed a deal for Ronaldiniho for this fixture, but his presence wouldn’t help anyway. Liverpool are getting better, yes, I do get bored of saying that, and I think the’ll prove it with a win. 0-2

Bolton v Wigan – Owen Coyle has put the last two Bolton defeats down to bad refereeing decisions , but he would have to be the unluckiest man alive if he fails to get the rub of the green against a poorly travelled side. A return to form.  3-0

Everton v Tottenham – Everton may struggle in the absence of Tim Cahill – who is off to represent Australia in the Asia cup. He has scored a whopping 9 goals this term (over a third of their goals) and will be missed. But Everton are assured enough at the back and they will frustrate Tottenham. 1-1

Newcastle v West Ham – Pardew has done a decent enough job at Newcastle so far – with six points in four games not beyond what should be expected. West Ham have improved and they will be boosted by the absence of Carroll. A draw seems fair.0-0

Wolves v Chelsea – McCarthy has been unlucky; he may look back at game when Wolves played well and lost as missed opportunities. Now Wolves are playing poorly and are without many first team players…it’s a bit doom and gloom. That said Chelsea haven’t had the best of it and they are lucky to be playing a poor side on their low confidence. 1-2


here for the footballing journey.
