Weekend predictions

Alex the great?

Alex McLeish has had a solid start, Birmingham were 20 seconds away from a very good point at St James Park. This must put him top of the ginger league with Dave Kitson a close second. Reading were superb against Liverpool, but like Man City the league is not won at home, Reading must do better away from the Madesjski.

Prediction: Birmingham 3 Reading 2

 

Bruce has got the Blues?

Blackburn have one of the best away records in the league. With Robbie Savage back in the side this promises to be a tasty encounter, although Savage has confessed to munching on curry flavored Monster Munch before a game. Without England’s number 1 forward Wigan are struggling for goals. If only Bruce could call upon a Carlton Cole or Shefki Kuqi!

Prediction: Wigan 1 Blackburn 2

 

Pride back in Derby?

After a season’s best performance for the smoggies it’ll be back to reality in a six point dogging fight with the Rams. Derby have managed so few goals this season that Paul Jewell has issued all his strikers with detailed maps and and drawings for a route to goal…sadly for him he got these off Howard Wilkinson’s eBay shop. Other notable Wilkinson sale items a hairdryer and framed picture of an Emu £1.99!

Prediction: Derby 0 Boro 0

 

Big Sam the Renaissance man?

Fulham have Europe’s most deadly striker in Shefki Kuqi, yet are without a win since December 3rd. Newcastle however, are going through yet another renaissance. Big Sam was one game away from the sack, but after a quiet word with Billy the Fish Newcastle can once again look forward to the dizzy heights of mid table.

Prediction: Fulham 1 Newcastle 2

 

Sexy Sven goes for 9

If the league were based on home games, then Man City would be clear favorites. Sven has installed passion, belief and has his team playing sexy football; maybe he’s on the Pompey dust too? The enigmatic Swede is enjoying life back in the UK, and has so far stayed out of trouble.One word you can’t associate with Gary Megson is sexy, although, after the 4-1 demolition of Wigan his Bolton side will go to Eastlands full of confidence, mind you, they went to Anfield full of confidence and got hammered 4-0.

Prediction: Man City 1 Bolton 0

 

Champions League is where it’s at?

Peter Crouch will partner Jamie Carragher at the back as Rafa will once again rotate his squad, after all, the reserve team are away at Birmingham the following Tuesday. Liverpool’s woeful performance at Reading will give United a psychological edge. Wayne Rooney was so desperate to score on Saturday that he called Granny Peggy for another session.

Prediction: Liverpool 0 Man U 1

 

Pompey are ‘avin it large!

Strong, powerful, creative, energetic & invincible, no, you’re not hallucinating, the magical Pompey dust is obviously working wonders. Unbeaten in 11 games, Portsmouth are without doubt, the surprise package of the season. Spurs are on an unbeaten run themselves, 1 game without defeat is their best run in some weeks. Ramous will be looking for the magical Pompey dust as Spurs look for their first away win of the season.

Prediction: Pompey 2 Spurs 1

 

Stop the rot

Villa have outplayed, out Mr. muscled, and out fought their last two opponents, yet have nothing to show for it. Martin O’Neil’s side are without doubt the best team to play in Purple in the Premiership. Roy Keane was a fine competitor, but as Sunderland slip into the bottom three his managerial credentials are finally being questioned. Sunderland were the 8th biggest spenders in Europe, yet still find themselves in relegation dogfight.

Prediction: Sunderland 1 Villa 3

 

Europe here we come?

The hammers host Everton twice this week. The Hammers welcome back Dean Ashton, whose hairline has a striking resemblance to the great Zindane. The toffees will be sweet after The Big Yak Attack went large against Fulham, and in Tim Cahill they have the leagues best BBQ king.

Prediction: West Ham 1 Everton 1
