Jeremy has shown Sunderland it can be done! After weeks of propping up the table, a cool four points see him fly up it. Colin also managed four and Robert three, meaning quite a productive week for the lads in the lower half. Apart from Bill, that is, who is surely only keeping the foot of the league warm until I end up there.
I realise that Manchester and Salford’s finest meet this weekend but had already sent the e mails out asking for predictions on the Everton v Spurs game. Chelsea in town for the lads today. Easy, right?
The predictions and league standings:
Sunderland v Chelsea
Bill: My default prediction for the Cats (which largely accounts for my relegation position in the Predictions League) and one day they’ll live up to it. This could be their weekend. Chelski of late can’t even win the easy games (Wednesday? – Goldy) and I don’t think this will be one of them. (And we think WE have managerial woes…)
Colin: I am going to be mad, sad and had (as in “ever been had?”_all in one go. Sunderland are going to tear into a sulking Chelsea who, far from being able to turn the hollow 6-1 CH win into an instant morale booster for the Premier, will be so glum and so cross with Rafa for being there at all that they won’t know what hit them. They’ll come back late but too late. 3-2
Robert: After Chelsea broke out of their goal scoring slump in the midweek it
seems like Sunderland could be in for a long afternoon. I think we’ll
play hard, but lose in some frustrating manner. 1-2 with Chelsea
The rest: Jeremy 0-0. Goldy 1-1. Jake 1-0. Sixer 2-1. Malcolm 2-0. John Mac 2-1.
Everton v Spurs
Goldy: We*ll I’m just gonna start putting the initial scores that come into my head in now as I reckon I’d be top if I had adopted this strategy from the start. Well, maybe not. Two good sides but Everton will have enough here, I reckon. 2-1.
Sixer: Two good sides, lots of goals and a diving contest between Bale and Osman. 2-2.
Malcolm: Tough call this one. You see I like Everton. But I also like Spurs. There’s only one way to sort this out…………….FIGHT! 2-2
The rest: Bill: 3-1. Jeremy 2-1. Jake 2-1. Colin 1-1. Robert 1-1. John Mac 2-2.
Fulham v Newcastle
Jeremy: Fulham are no pushovers at home unless they are down to 9 or 10 men when sides from the NE visit. The home side may miss the influence of Bryan Ruiz who is ruled out through injury, but they should still have enough to overcome Wonga’s Wongas comfortably. Fulham 2 Loan Shark Lackies 0
Jake: We hammered, yes HAMMERED Fulham a couple of weeks ago but the home team won’t slip up against The Monochrome Set because they’re CRAP! Two nowt to Fulham. 0-2.
John Mac: I don’t normally favour London teams but in this case I’ll make an exception.
The rest: Bill 2-1. Colin 2-0. Sixer 3-0. Goldy 2-0. Robert 2-1. Malcolm 3-0.
