  1. Cannot believe I missed the Wolves V Liverpool game that said I would of gone for over 2.5 goals so every cloud and all that Arsenal V Burnley. Are Arsenal having their usual mid season wobble? two defeats in a row, no I don't think they are and they tend to have decent battles with Burnley, I will plump for a home win here with the home team to keep a clean sheet.. BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE, NO @ 37/40 BETVICTOR Bournemouth V Brighton. this one gives me a headache as i'm not sure which way this will go, I keep thinking Bournemouth but then my head says Brighton nick these sort of games, in the end my Bournemouth head won out and I think a home win. BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE @ EVENS BETFAIR & 188BET Chelsea V Leicester. Another interesting game and probably another home win for me, Chelsea have lost only one in their last 5 and Leicester are not flying at all, that said I think this will be a close affair and Chelsea to win with the odd goal in 3 so again i'm opting for OVER 2.5 GOALS @ 3/4 BETFAIR, BETVICTOR & 188BET Huddersfield V Southampton. Southampton had a massive confidence boosting win over Arsenal and Huddersfield have lost their last 3, leaving Southampton to believe they will have a great chance here, but I think a draw is a good bet here so I'm going for DRAW HALF TIME/ DRAW FULL TIME @ 37/10 REDZONE City V Palace. Cannot see anything but a comfortable home win here Palace a relatively toothless in attack and well City aren't that leads to a comfortable home win and pressure being kept on Liverpool MAN CITY -2 @ 6/5 BETFAIR Newcastle V Fulham. Newcastle must be thinking this is definitely a home win, once again the owner is talking buy outs and although it shouldn't it affects the players, I think Fulham will come and attack here and this for me will be the correct move, i'm going for a shock (will it really be a shock) away win. FULHAM TO WIN @ 3/1 WITH VARIOUS BOOKMAKERS West Ham V Watford. Some very what I would call even games this week but can't forget that the hammers have won 4 on the bounce and by beating the teams that were around them they have moved up to 9th, there is not a lot to seperate the teams in the table and I think there will not be a lot here either. so I think SCORE DRAW SO BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE @ 11/17 REDZONE Cardiff V United. Now what to make of things at United?? I won't get in to it here to long winded, I think if Cardiff go for it a 'shock' is on the cards, and there is no magic wand at United to make them an attacking force straight away, so i'm plumping for a home win. CARDIFF TO WIN @ 11/2 BET365, BETFAIR, UNIBET, BETFRED Everton V Spurs. Another tough one here everything says to me Spurs will have to much going forward I can see a real end to end battle developing with Spurs just nicking it so OVER 3.5 GOALS @ 2/1 BET365, BETFAIR, BETVICTOR, UNIBET & 188BET THAT CONCLUDES MY CHRISTMAS PREDICTIONS, WHETHER YOU CELEBRATE OR NOT HAVE A GREAT CHRISTMASS EVERYONE AND SEE YA BOXING DAY
  2. Not sure About the Solskjaer appointment to be honest, it is a very strange one and I think a little differently to you here @StevieDay1983 I think if Cardiff go for it they will sneak it, there is no magic wand to be waved at United to suddenly be an attacking force and their creativity is a little low
  3. Mourinho Does have pedigree but he also has previous in falling out with players, also when he was spending millions at Chelsea, only really United could compete, now with him at United you have City, Liverpool, Chelsea Spurs and Arsenal all capable of spending big, also I was not happy when they appointed him as my view is he has a short term vision, as a United fan you never leave games early under Mourinho you didn't wanna stay, I find it strange that they appointed Solskjaer for 6 months as interim, it smacks of trying to get Pochettino (which would be a great choice if they give him rebuild time) at all cost in the summer, me I would of selected a manager I wanted, appointed him now and said you have an 8 month pre season to get ready for 2019-20 season, It's a bit desperate there at the moment, and tbh I'm not sure who would want to take the job on, I think your boys will really fancy their chances this weekend @StevieDay1983
  4. Now that overrated CL Tournament knock out stage qualification is achieved the Premier league takes centre stage until February I for one am pleased with that. City V Everton. City tasted defeat for the first time this season and they will want to bounce back in style, Everton can be really stubborn but I expect City to come through this one. City Halftime/City fulltime 3/4 Ladbrokes Palace V Leicester. Palace are not hard to figure out, stop a couple of players and you stop them, Leicester will be happy to sucker punch on the counter and I think that will bring 3 points to the Foxes. UNDER 2.5 GOALS @ 11/17 188BET Huddersfield V Newcastle. Everytime I think Newcastle will struggle they go and get some kind of result, a match where both teams will be desperate for 3 points and I think that will make it end in a draw. DRAW @ 21/10 BETVICTOR, SPORTINGBET & 188BET Spurs V Burnley. Spurs will be buzzing having got Through a tough CL Group. That strangely can sometimes have the adverse effect on the team however I don't expect that to happen to Spurs and I think they will see of Burnley quite easily. OVER 3.5 GOALS @ 6/5 BETVICTOR Watford V Cardiff. Watford will fancy this one and most will agree with them on that, Like I always say I like Warnock and actually think he is doing an amazing job with the squad and budget he has, I am going for a draw here. DRAW @ 58/19 UNIBET Wolves V Bournemouth. Finding this one harder than I thought although Wolves are off two good wins and Bournemouth are off of a hammering at home, so logic says a comfy win for Wolves, but if Logic played a part in Football, we'd all be rich. BOURNEMOUTH TO WIN @ 31/10 MARATHONBET, BETFAIR & BETVICTOR Fulham V West Ham. Well Fulham were very poor at Old Trafford and West ham have won 3 on the bounce so confidence will be high, Ranieri will try and make Fulham hard to beat especially at home but I feel Wwest Ham may nick this with the odd goal in 3. OVER 2.5 GOALS @ 9/13 188BET Brighton V Chelsea. Brighton have gotten in to the habit of beating the teams around them and them teams that are expected to struggle. Chelsea are off of a morale boosting home win against City and I see Chelsea continuing here. OVER 3.5 GOALS @ 85/40 BETVICTOR Southampton V Arsenal. I think Southampton are doomed for relegation this year but their hopes are being kept alive by poor form all around them, this seems to be a different Arsenal team this year, little bit of resilience about them although I don't think they will need that in this fixture. I expect them to hold Southampton to nil. BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE, NO @ 8/5 BETVICTOR SO ON TO THE BIG WEEKEND GAME. Now those that know me know I don't watch this game for reasons I will not divulge Liverpool V Man United. Liverpool reached the summit last week and they will fully expect to Beat United and stay there but this fixture vary rarely is straight forward and I was surprised to learn Liverpool have not beaten United at Anfield since 2013, now with all that said that run should come to an end this week, I fully expect the negative Mourinho tactics to be in full effect this Sunday and try to go for a bore draw or a 3 point snatch, But I think Liverpool will come flying out and if they get an early goal that should be that. LIVERPOOL HALFTIME/LIVERPOOL FULLTIME @ 29/20 LADBROKES, BETVICTOR, CORALS, BOYLESPORTS & BETSTARS as always people enjoy your weekend I hope I have been able to help in even a small way, and the darts also starts today, what a good time for sports the festive season is
  5. It's back at the Palace, The William Hill PDC Darts Championships kick off today and it is probably the most open it has been for years, although MVG & Gary Anderson both seem to be in a fair bit of form, and the longer match format suits the more consistent players (I know I know obvious statement) That is why you will find Michael Van Gerwen very short to win the tournament as short as 11/8 at most places though you can get 7/4 about him clinching another title. There are some players that may be worth a punt here and if you spread your bets wisely could come up trumps. here is a little list of players to watch in my opinion. he may be worth a Gerwyn Price has finally got himself a TV Title causing a little bit of a ruffle on the way to it, I like this guy and I like that he doesn't really care for reputation and that can go a long way at the worlds 33/1 at most places although you can get 40/1, may be worth a cheeky EW Bet. Mensur Suljovic. another player that doesn't care to much for reputation and if he gets it right can cause some major upsets and go all the way, Got some steady nerves on him and can finish a leg in the high % another one worth a little tickle in my opinion, generally found at 20/1 or 22/1 Adrian Lewis. Well Jackpot has been out of sorts with his darts for a while now, but he is slowly crawling back up the rankings and has the winning experience at the Palace, I have put him in here because he is generally 66/1 although I have seen 80/1 To win it outright, now I don't think he will but he may be worth a punt in the matches as they go along. Daryl Gurney. Superchin throws some cracking darts at times and if he can hold it together could go all the way another one of the players that doesn't seem to care who he is playing however his own mind seems to wander and that is what cost him at a few tournaments. 33/1 Generally across the board. Those are my 4 outsiders that I think are in with a shout.
  6. Seems like I just finished typing the midweek predictions and here we are again, gotta love the festive football. Bournemouth V Liverpool. Liverpool are developing the ability to not play so well and win, always handy when challenging for the title, I think they will nick this with a couple of late goals. DRAW HALF TIME/LIVERPOOL FULL TIME @ 4/1 MARATHONBET Arsenal V Huddersfield. Arsenal would of been a little disappointed with only a point at Old Trafford and I expect them to make amends here, although Huddersfield have improved and maybe Arsenals style will suit them, however a home win is inevitable. UNDER 2.5 GOALS @ 4/7 BETFAIR Burnley V Brighton. Agree with above statements that Burnley must start to get some points from these fixtures and I think they might this eek, not faulting Brighton and Chris Hughton, they play the right way and I like the guy, however I think Burnley will just edge this. OVER 2.5 GOALS @ 77/50 MARATHON BET Cardiff V Southampton. @StevieDay1983 How the West Ham game would of been different if that early pen had gone in. A week ago I would of had Cardiff in this for sure, however the new manager syndrome could come in to effect here, amazes me how many teams win the first game of a new managers reign, so I am not so sure on the outcome of this match, this is a loose one for me in terms of betting however i'll go for CARDIFF TO WIN @ 2/1 BETWAY Man United V Fulham. Surely Surely United will end their run of draws here?? Ranieri will probably set up being hard to break down and United find it hard to break sides down with their lack of fluid football however they have to start winning and the manager may have to stat throwing caution to the wind, with that said there seems to be considerable unrest at United with the managers style, still think they will win though. DRAW HALFTIME/UNITED FULLTIME @ 18/5 MARATHONBET West Ham V Palace. Where to start with the if's but's and maybe's, if Cardiff score the pen, If Palace could play the same two games running. I think this will be quite a tough encounter and in a rather cliche way the first goal here will be of paramount importance as both sides wobble when conceding first, think Palace will give this a better go than they did at Brighton, that said i'm opting for a draw here, but a scoring one so UNDER 1.5 GOALS @ 13/5 UNIBET & 888SPORT THIS IS UNDOUBTEDLY THE FIXTURE OF THE WEEKEND Chelsea V Man City. With Chelsea's surprise defeat at Wolves and City seeming to march towards the title this fixture is probably beneficial to a team not playing in it ( Liverpool ) the reds will be hoping for a home win or at least a Draw, City do not seem to change their approach to any fixture and this will be no different but Chelsea will be keen to put a dent in City's charge, I think this will be a tough one but I expect City to just nick this also. CITY HALFTIME/CITY FULLTIME @ 21/10 BET365 Leicester V Spurs. Another tough one this in my opinion but Spurs do seem to come up with a way of winning these tough ones at clubs Like Leicester. I think the outstanding bet here is for both teams to score @ 9/13 10BET & SPORTPESA Newcastle V Wolves. Are the Wanderers finding form again, they will no doubt be buoyant after a superb win over Chelsea and Newcastle too after a hearty point at Goodison, Newcastle are so indifferent and that makes this tough as they will expect to win this sort of fixture at home, and Wolves will think they can get 3 more points here. hard to call for me. OVER 2.5 GOALS @ 38/25 MARATHONBET Everton V Watford. So Silva and Richarlison Are up against their old clubs and despite the usual I rspect them etc etc they will bith want to win this one desperately and I think they will do just that, however I expect a battle because Watford will equally want to prove a point. OVER 2.5 GOALS @ 47/50 MARATHONBET Another weekends fixtures done, good hunting to you all and as usual, eat drink be merry but especially drink
  7. Jeez no rest for the wicked, I'd like to say, I knew Hughes would get the sack if Southampton didn't beat United and can't see where his managerial career goes from here?? Never been impressed with him as the gaffer. Gotta love midweek fixtures though. Bournemouth V Huddersfield. Bournemouth were unlucky not to get a pen at 2-1 down against City an who knows from there, and Hudersfield may have got something if they kept 11 on the pitch, I expect Bournemouth to get through this game though ot may be tougher than they expect. Bournemouth Half Time/Full Time 9/5 @ BETVICTOR, LADBROKES & CORAL Brighton V Palace. somehow this is classed as a bit of a derby, maybe it's an Eagles v Seagulls thing, Palace will be jubilant after finally scoring from open play and winning at Selhurst and I have a sneaking feeling for an away victory here and I don't know why...................... Palace to win 44/25 @ MARATHONBET West Ham V Cardiff. West Ham will certainly be expecting to win after their dismantling of Newcastle away, But the Hammers do blow hot and cold and there could be a surprise here at the London Stadium, Both teams to score YES 11/10 @BETVICTOR Watford V City. There is not a single game where I don't expect City to score at least 3, they just have goals everywhere and always conjure something up, Watford can be tricky at home and do tend to give a good account of themselves, however City will have to Much. City Half Time/Full Time 10/11 @ LADBROKES & CORALS Wednesdays Games Burnley V Liverpool. I don't think Liverpool will be reliant on goalkeepers baring gifts this week, They seem to be stuttering a little but still digging out the result they need, however I expect them not to struggle here and although I think Burnley have got to get a run going soon, it won't be in this game. OVER 2.5 GOALS 19/29 @ 188BET Everton V Newcastle. How is Evertons recovery after they conceded that shocking injury time winner in the derby, well I think fortunately for them they meet Newcastle team that are easy pickings in my opinion and I think Everton will grab all 3 points EVERTON TO WIN 8/13 @ MARATHONBET & SPORTINGBET Fulham V Leicester. Ranieri will make Fulham harder to beat and for a side struggling that is well needed, they gave a good account of themselves against Chelsea and I expect more of the same here, Leicester are always prone to nab you on the counter and that is how they will set out, as there ever been a manager that has taken charge of a side and then played two of his former sides in his first two games? DRAW 28/11 @ UNIBET Wolves V Chelsea. I find it intriguing that when Cardiff were off to a terrible start people were calling for Warnocks head, yet Nuno Espirito Santo with his quite big budget and squad is not having a bad word said what do you think @StevieDay1983?, now that is not me saying Wolves should sack him, no way!!!! The visit of Chelsea will get the Wolves right up for it but again I expect the blues to have to much. CHELSEA HALF TIME/FULL TIME 19/10 @ BETVICTOR United V Arsenal. Wwell well well, could this be Mourinho's last game? There are rumblings at Old Trafford, Players are not happy and haven't been for a while, Jose said United would be top 4 by January, however he did not say which year!!!! His only saving grace is it will cost United around £11m to sack him and his ego will not allow him to walk. If Arsenal approach this the right way I see nothing but an away win here, United are struggling to make chances especially in the first 45 Minutes at home and that air of inevitable late goal has long since left Old Trafford, United are there for the taking. ARSENAL HALF TIME/FULLTIME A WHOPPING 17/4 @ BETVICTOR Spurs V Southampton. A big loss for Spurs at the weekend in terms of them not seeming to be able to close the gap on the top sides, however what a fixture to bounce back on, I can no longer moan about Mark Hughes on here but Southampton are poor, I bet a certain Mr Redknapp is gutted he's in the Jungle, the Saints job would be right up his street again . I see nothing but a comfortable home win here OVER 3.5 GOALS 7/4 @ UNIBET & BETFAIR Well that was quite exhausting, no midweek drinks not on a school night Happy Punting PuntersLounge folk
  8. I am shocking didn't even realise there was a fixture tonight Shocking. I am venturing away from correctr scores this week, broadening my horizons so to speak Cardiff V Wolves. Wolves have hit a damp patch and I really fancy Cardiff to get something from this home game tonight, Football under the lights has a different feeling about it. I am going for Draw Half Time Cardiff Full Time @ 15/2 BetFred Crystal Palace V Burnley. Palace will be buoyant after their deserved draw last week at OT and I believe they will be to much for Burnley at home but only just by a slim margin. Under 1.5 Goals @ 4/11 Coral, BetFred, BoyleSports & BetStars Huddersfield V Brighton, Huddersfield are another team whose tails will be up after a great win away at Wolves, they will see this as a fixture they can win and maybe should at home, but Brighton will be looking at this as a place they can pick up away points I think this will be a good battle, both teams to score @ 13/10 SportPesa Leicester v Watford. A hard one to call for me, Leicester at home are hard to beat and Watford can be indifferent could all depend on Watfords approach to the game, will Leicester lure them in before hitting them on the counter which they do so well at the King Power? Watford Half Time Leicester Full Time @ 33/1 with BLACKTYPE Man City V Bournemouth, I see a stat that in the 6 fixtures between the sides, City have scored 21 and conceded only 2, I don't see the pattern changing much, City are always good value to score 3 or more especially at the Eitihad, so with that in mind i'll plump for over 4.5 Goals @ 13/8 BetFair Newcastle V West Ham. Couple of indifferent sides here you never really know which Newcastle or West Ham team is going to turn up, and I do not see a goal fest here at all, I hate going for 0-0 so instead I am going to opt for no goalscorer in case an OG wins it, so no goalscorer @ 8/1 bet365, BETFRED & 10BET Southampton V Man United. I think if the Saints lose to the Red Devils Mark Hughes will be dismissed and that says a couple of things about this fixture, firstly it shows how badly United are fairing because Southampton will expect to win, secondly Losing to United doesn't usually end with the opposing teams manager losing his job, having said all that I expect United to win and win comfortably. Over 3.5 Goals @ 12/5 Betfair Now am I the only one that gets suspicious that the Premier League Fixture computer randomly throws up these derby fixtures on the same weekend? Chelsea V Fulham. so Chelsea suffered a heavy defeat against Spurs last week and Fulham pulled off one of them first game in charge wins, it will reverse this week, Chelsea will win and win with ease in my opinion, Both teams to score, NO @ 20/21 BETVICTOR Arsenal V Spurs, this fixture intrigues me because both sides are doing better than widely perceived, Spurs will be absolutely buzzing after their defeat of Chelsea last week, and Arsenal will be wanting to show that North London is not ready for a change of dominant colour from Red to White, I sit here thinking this is quite a hard one to predict and I think that because I really do believe it depends on how Spurs approach it, I think maybe a score draw here will be the outcome, so both teams to Score @ 1/2 SportPesa Finally off to Anfield for the Merseyside Derby, a fixture which in recent history especially is heavily in the red half of the city's favour, and sorry Everton fans no change this weekend, Liverpool will be to strong for Everton and I see this being at least a two goal margin so @ Liverpool -1 11/10 SPREADEX That felt really strange not trying for correct scores but thoroughly enjoyable, I hope I have helped in even a small way if you were undecided, now lets go spank the bookies failing that see you in the pub to drown our sorrows and tell our hard luck tales
  9. Good Afternoon Everybody Brighton 2 Leicester 1. Brighton are 21/10 to win this one with betvictor I think that is great value they are not a bad side at home with plenty of work, endeavour, and some pinches of quality in there. Obviously Leicester will not be pushovers but I expect Brighton to nick this with the odd goal in three. BRIGHTON TO WIN 21/10 BETVICTOR Everton 2 Cardiff 0. Cardiff will be up after that win before the international break, but I feel Everton at Goodison will be to much for them, but I don't see a hammering, I edged for 2-0 over 2-1 here which I may regret. EVERTON TO WIN 2-0 6/1 BET365 Fulham 1 Southampton 2. Fulham this month for me have caught up in that "the manager is not up to it" web that newly promoted clubs tend to believe and fall for, I think the manager change that can so often inspire victory in a new managers first game but I don't see that here, even though Southampton are poor I think they will nick it. OVER 2.5 GOALS 24/25 MARATHONBET Man United 2 Palace 1. Think United will edge this but they seem to be on wobbly legs defensively, with anyone looking like they can score against them, however I think the quality of United will shine through, Martial has hit a nice little patch of form and United seem to be settling down a little bit therefore I think they will win this one with a nervy finish. BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE 21/20 BOYLESPORTS & SPORTINGBET Watford 1 Liverpool 3. Now this will be a little tougher than the scoreline suggest, Watford seem to be right up for the big games at home, and I think this could be a bit end to end which will suit Liverpool and their flying forward tactics. LIVERPOOL TO WIN 3-1 12/1 BET365 West Ham 2 Man City 4. Am I being hopeful that the hammers will get 2?? probably but I see City being comfortable say 3-1 4-1 up and West Ham snatching another, City are head and shoulders above everyone with only Liverpool close in my opinion. OVER 4.5 GOALS 27/10 UNIBET & 888SPORT Spurs 2 Chelsea 2 . On paper easily the game of the week and even as I am typing this I have not put a score in, I think amongst the big games this season this is probably the hardest to call I think the two sides are very evenly matched and that will probably reflect in the result, I digress as I have still no idea what I want to put. I have ended up going for 2-2 and I am not sure why........2-2 12/1 BETVICTOR, BET365, BETSTARS & 188BET Bournemouth 2 Arsenal 3. Think another tough one to call here but I see the reds of Arsenal having just to much for the Cherries here, and edging home by one goal in a high scoring game, Both sides like the attacking side of the game more than they do defending and I think this will play a big part in the score. OVER 4.5 GOALS 3/1 BETVICTOR, UNIBET, BETSTARS, 188BET & SPREADEX Wolves 2 Huddersfield 0. Just because they are at home I believe Wolves will see this one out, Huddersfield are in no rush to score goals it seems and I see no change here, with Wolves attacking players doing all the damage they need to creep back up the table. WOLVES HALFTIME/FULLTIME 11/8 CORAL & LADBROKES Burnley 1 Newcastle 0. Not the most thrilling of teams here which is why I have gone for a 1-0 home win, which means it will end up 3-3 . No seriously I see Burnley Scoring early and then hanging on for dear life to there lead, and Newcastle are not the most potent in front of the onion bag. BURNLEY HALFTIME/FULLTIME 4/1 LADBROKES, BETVICTOR & CORAL Good hunting everyone, and if I have helped in any way you are very welcome and if I haven't, please sip a beer it could be worse
  10. Who do you suggest takes the job? which manager is a "premier league" manager that will keep them up, do you believe a change of manager will keep them up?
  11. Good evening everyone, I am still writing this but have decided to let my missus have a go with the predictions as she has been asking me what I am doing when I am on the excellent Punters Lounge Forum, sigh I know, but let her have a shot Cardiff 0 Brighton 1. Sorry @StevieDay1983 the missus doesn't give you the win here, and I have to agree Brighton are settled and they will see this as one they should win, however I think Cardiff will also be thinking the same, that said an away win for me. UNDER 1.5 GOALS 7/4 MARATHON BET & betfair Huddersfield 0 West Ham 2. Not a bad shout this, though with Huddersfield finally off the mark they will definitely fancy this and will hope the inconsistent West Ham turn up, This match caused a long pause for thought before coming up with 0-2 and I have to say so Far I do not disagree. WEST HAM HALF TIME/FULL TIME 3/1 BETVICTOR Leicester 2 Burnley 0. Now here is where me and the missus differ but end up with the same prediction, she predicts 2-0 because of the tragedy that befell Leicester FC & The City, I think they will still win but will be a little tough with all the emotion and travelling sure to play a part. UNDER 2.5 GOALS 101/100 MARATHON BET Newcastle 0 Bournemouth 0. EEEEErrrrrrr no goals in this game is a bold shout, but it could be a profitable one, although Bournemouth will go for it, but will Newcastle sit back and hope to grab a breakaway goal as they did against Watford?? NO GOALSCORER (ALWAYS THE BEST WAY TO GO WHEN 0-0 IS PREDICTED IN CASE AN OWN GOAL WINS IT) 9/1 bet365 & BETFRED Southampton 1 Watford 1. With Southampton floundering and I know I mention on numerous occasions that it baffles me Mark Hughes is still in the top flight management, A draw may not be a bad shout, so i'll give her the benefit of the doubt. BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE 23/4 Sporting Bet Crystal Palace 1 Spurs 3. Again not a bad shout I think she is doing ok this would not be far off my prediction to be honest, Spurs will have to much going forward for the eagles and they also seem to be enjoying themselves away from Wembley. OVER 3.5 GOALS 41/20 888sport & 39/19 UNIBET Liverpool 2 Fulham 0. Seems reasonable??? Liverpool back from a disappointing performance in Europe however they will see this out comfortably and 2-0 is a little humble but we will see. DRAW HALFTIME/LIVERPOOL FULLTIME 4/1 BETVICTOR Chelsea 2 Everton 0. Hard to argue with this choice too, I think you can't look past Chelsea being comfortable in this one, with probably a goal in each half being sufficient enough. Chelsea HALFTIME/FULLTIME 23/20 Ladbrokes, CORAL & BETSTARS Arsenal 1 Wolves 0. -0 TO THE Arsenaaaal, remember those days well they are back ha ha ha, Wolves have hit their first wobble and may go to the Emirates and try and hold back which is really against their usual style and Arsenal will nick it. ARSENAL 1-0, 89/10 MARATHON BET AND SO ON TO THE MANCHESTER DERBY, SHE WILL PICK CITY JUST COS I AM UNITED Man City 2 United 1. Well I was a little shocked by this one as in I thought she'd go 3 or 4 nil, but she gives United a goal ' United just don't have what it takes to deal with City, me personally I am fearful of another Hiding similar to the one at Old Trafford a few years back, however the missus goes 2-1 and I'll go with that. CITY HALFTIME/CITY FULLTIME 21/20 William Hill, Coral, BETFRED, BETSTARS & SPORTINGBET There endeth the predictions, have fun everyone and don't be to hard on us I think there are some actually great shouts in there, I am off to have a party with my dad, which means two of my favourite things, BEER & FOOD
  12. It's Saturday so can mean only one thing, A long winded write up by me, Bournemouth 2 United 2. Good job I checked this before posting as it said Bournemouth 2 United 32!!!!, I was torn between 2 each or a 3-2 away win, however I have settled for a score draw, United will accept that despite all of Jose's ramblings this week. . OVER 3.5 GOALS 19/10 UNIBET & 888sport Cardiff 2 Leicester 3. This will be quite an emotional day and often the opposition get forgotten about but the occasion can get to both with football almost taking a back seat, and on such occasions football brings people together and I am sure Cardiff will do a great job in making it a fitting occasion, I see Leicester really wanting to do a good job and Cardiff attacking too, with Leicester nicking it with the odd goal in 5, I know that is already 9 goals predicted in 2 games. BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE 5/6 BETSTARS Everton 2 Brighton 1. I think Everton will win this despite Brighton giving it a good go, I think this will be quite an open game with a bit of free flowing attacking football, I like Brighton and I like Chris Hughton, an honest manager hardly ever blames anyone if his team loses but I can't let that cloud my judgement so I am sticking with a narrow home win. 2-1 Everton 8/1 bet365, BETVICTOR, BETSTARS. 1OBET & SportPesa Newcastle 2 Watford 0. What have I just written??? Newcastle have got to win at some point, and I know Watford seem to have found their feet again, but I am sticking with the home win just because they have to win at some point, mad logic I must admot but sometimes it pays off. Newcastle to win 9/5 UNIBET & BETVICTOR West Ham 1 Burnley 0. Found this one a little tricky for some reason, probably because of Burnleys hammering last week, I think West Ham have found some kind of Rhythm and I expect a narrow victory at home for them in this one. UNDER 1.5 GOALS 13/5 BETFAIR Arsenal 1 Liverpool 2. I have to be honest and say I rolled the dice on this one so could of ended up with 6-4 but honestly this is what the dice threw up a 2-1 away win, Arsenal are in fine form and Liverpool love to attack, many saying this is Liverpools first real test this season, I think Liverpool will just have a little to much in attack for the Gunners, and the dice agree . OVER 2.5 GOALS 4/7 betfair. Wolves 1 Spurs 3. It,s not that I think the wheels have fallen off at Wolves, they haven't and I think they will be fine this season, but nearly every promoted team hits a patch of form that disturbs them and in most cases relegates them, but I don't see the relegation part for Wolves, However I see a strong Spurs performance and a comfy win, Spurs seem to be just getting on with it this year. 3-1 SPURS 20/1 bet365 City 5 Southampton 0. I have been a little gentle where City have been concerned in recent weeks, but again Southampton are poor and I see City giving them a good hiding here and then serious questions being asked of Mark Hughes who for me is a bit of a strange one, always seems to get a Job. OVER 4.5 GOALS 15/8 betfair & PADDYPOWER Chelsea 3 Palace 1. Chelsea have hit the ground running with their new manager and will be part of an unusual 3 horse premier league title race, they are playing a nice style of football and a few players seem to be settling in nicely, and I see a comfortable win here for the Blues. BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE 1/1 bet365, WilliamHill, BETFRED & betway Huddersfield 2 Fulham 1. AAAAAAAHHH another hair puller, how do you predict this, Huddersfield have had a tough start with their fixtures but I think they will come good and record their first win of the campaign here with a nervy narrow win over fellow straggler's Fulham, I am going to be bold and say an injury time winner for the home side . Huddersfield to win 11/8 BETVICTOR, UNIBET & betway Hope these have been of amusement and more importantly help with any punts you may be taking. enjoy your weekend people I actually have a weekend off so it is beer o'clock for me
  13. Straight in to it this week Wolves 2 Brighton 1 Have to say I was very wrong with Wolves last week, but I expect them to bounce back with a narrow win over Brighton here, Brighton go quietly I think about raking up enough points to stay up, their first target. Wolves Half Time-Full time 3/1 bet365 & BETFRED Fulham 1 Bournemouth 2 Confidence is low at the cottage and Bournemouth seem to know how to extract the 3 points from these sort of fixtures, and I see them doing the same here, think it will be close but not quite enough for Fulham. OVER 2.5 GOALS 4/7 betfair Liverpool 3 Cardiff 0. Sorry @StevieDay1983 but I cannot see nothing but a comfortable Home victory here, great game for Cardiff last week but Liverpool are a different animal and tend to rush forward trying to get the game over asap, Liverpool 3-0 25/4 10Bet Southampton 1 Newcastle 0. Two struggling sides here and I can see Benitez leaving St James park either walking or pushed before Christmas, Said it before I can't take to Mark Hughes teams for some reason but i feel they will nick a tight one here. DRAW/SOUTHAMPTON 17/4 BETVICTOR & BETSTARS Watford 1 Huddersfield 1. I know the hornets are fresh from a good away win, but I think Huddersfield will be stubborn here and hard to shake, so it has made me lean to a scoring draw which will obviously please the terriers more. 1-1 DRAW 13/2 bet365, BETVICTOR & BETSTARS Leicester 2 West Ham 0. Changed my mind about 3 times here ended up at 2-0 because someone rang my door bell, I reach my predictions in curious ways , however I was edging to a home win anyway but was struggling with a score, so I settled for 2-0 thanks to the postman. LEICESTER 2-0 11/1 bet365 & 188BET Burnley 1 Chelsea 3. Burnley can be a tough nut to crack on occasion but Chelsea seem not to be caring to much about the small stuff like that and I expect them to run out comfortable at Turf Moor, I like Shaun Dyche and got a feeling if Benitez leaves Newcastle they may look at Dyche instead of "a big name". OVER 3.5 GOALS 39/19 UNIBET & 41/20 888sport Palace 0 Arsenal 2. Expecting Arsenal to make it 12 wins in a row in all comps, Arsenal are getting somewhere near to the style of Arsenal in the late 9's early 00's and here I think they will see off the eagles who are not boiling at all, I think Arsenal were a bit suspect to the counter attack in Wengers later years and Emery seems to be plugging that to a degree. UNDER 2.5 GOALS 73/50 MARATHON BET United 2 Everton 1. Not just because I have supporters pessimism but United are a hard team to predict match outcomes this season and they seem to be performing better in the 2nd half of matches, Everton are slowly getting there and will be tough opposition here, I'd like to think United are going to develop the old siege mentality of their great teams but I won't hold my breath. United 2-1 8/1 bet365, BETSTARS, 10BET & SportPesa Spurs 2 City 2. I honestly don't know how to call this one Spurs are doing better than everyone thinks and City are just finding their expected form I am going to go for a exciting end to end score draw. 2-2 14/1 bet365 Sit back enjoy the weekend people
  14. Ahhhhhhh Normality of Premier League football returns and kicks off with a Big One! Chelsea 3 United 1. Won't be a surprise that I predict a Chelsea win here, Although United staged that comeback against Newcastle a stronger team would of gone on to put 3 or 4 past United in that 1st half as there were all over the place, I expect Mourinho will approach this with his usual caution and if Chelsea get an early goal Mourinho's United are not to clever at chasing against the big boys. I therefore see a comfortable early afternoon work for the Blues. OVER 3.5 GOALS 11/5 bet365 Bournemouth 2 Southampton 1. A south coast derby win for Bournemouth could see the cherries rise to the dizzy heights of 4th if other results go their way, I expect they will get their end of the job done with a scrappy close win, Southampton for me are poor and I'm not a fan of Mark Hughes management and think his style of play is dull. BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE 5/7 SportPesa, 10BET Cardiff 2 Fulham1. Here it is everyone Cardiffs first win, not because it's Fulham but just cause I think it's due, Cardiff have had an horrendous start to the season, but a win against Fulham will take them to within a point of the Cottagers, Fulham have some decent attack threat with Mitrovic and Sessingon but I think Cardiff will ride this one out and get the boost of a first Prem win. Under 3.5 goals is like buying money in my opinion and the fact that I can find 8 sites offering these odds tell me bookies agree. UNDER 3.5 GOALS 2/5 bet365, Ladbrokes, betfair, Coral, BETFRED, BoyleSports, BETSTARS, betway Man City 2 Burnley 0. Seems silly to say for a team sitting top of the table but City haven't quite clicked into gear yet which is a large worry for the rest of the teams in the league, I expect they will see this one out comfortably enough though Burnley will provide some decent resistance and Dyche may try to have a go here and why not, I see Sterling grabbing a goal here to after his confidence boosting brace in Spain. STERLING TO SCORE AT ANYTIME 23/25 MARATHON BET Newcastle 1 Brighton 1. Now I think Newcastle are struggling for several reason, to many of their players just can't cut it, uncertainty with club ownership and Benitez in my opinion not really wanting to be there, Brighton on the other hand are loving life, bit of an up and down season so far, and they may fancy they can nick all 3 points here but I think a 1-1 draw will be settled for. 1-1 47/10 MARATHON BET West Ham 2 Spurs 4. West Ham and Spurs do not like each other and this is a fiery encounter normally, but because I think Spurs will just go for it ad will West Ham I see a high scoring away win. People seem to think Spurs are struggling but it's their best start to a premier league campaign and I think the fact they are winning but maybe not in great style is clouding people, I think out of the two sides Spurs defence will be stronger and therefore prevail. DRAW/TOTTENHAM 22/5 MARATHON BET Wolves 2 Watford 0. Watfords predicted wobbles have set in and this is no place to go when you are wobbling at the moment, Wolves posses a confident little squad that believe in their manager and what he's doing, also have a decent financial clout behind them, and I think they will have to much for The Hornets here and score a goal in each half to seal the points. WOLVES 2-0 8/1 BETVICTOR Huddersfield 0 Liverpool 3. Huddersfield are improving but I can't see them getting any joy at all against Liverpool, For whatever reasons Liverpool struggled against Napoli and held on for a point against City, not terrible results in the grand scheme of things but even Klopp was saying his team look tired, however I expect them to shake that tiredness and win comfortably here was tempted to go for 0-4 but stuck at 3. LIVERPOOL 3-0 8/1 BETVICTOR Everton 2 Crystal Palace 1. I don't really know where to begin with both these sides, Everton look like they are going to have a flyer and then don't win for a couple games against teams you think they might, then they will go away an beat teams that you think they won't Palace are also hard to predict though it seems if you take Zaha out of the picture, no goals and no points seem to follow, so I am going for Everton to edge to a nervy 2-1 win. EVERTON 2-1 33/4 10BET SportPesa Arsenal 3 Leicester 1. Arsenal have definitely found their feet and scoring boots under Emery and although ;Leicester will go there and want to test Arsenals defence I expect the Gunners to pick them off a couple of times after probably taking a lead, and therefore see 3 points, and 3 goals for the Gunners and a nice win. Leicester to score a penalty 8/1 bet365 Another weekend down and it's all taking shape, I'm off for a beer or two enjoy people, enjoy
  15. Burnley 2 Huddersfield 0. I honestly thought Cardiff would turn Burnley over, and I think that was much better result for Burnley than people think, I see them having a comfortable 2-0 here, with Huddersfield proving pretty toothless in their second season, and also not defending to well, early goal will set the pace. FIRST GOALSCORER: VYDRA 11/2 WITH SPREADEX Palace 1 Wolves 1. Find this one pretty tough to call, everyone seems to agree Wolves are not looking out of place at the moment, but Palace are quite wiley in these sort of fixtures and normally come up trumps, however i'm going for another draw with 1-1 being my preferred choice, think Palace will lead and Wolves will peg them back. 1-1 Is 11/2 with BETVICTOR, BETFRED, BETSTARS & sportingbet, Leicester 3 Everton 1. Just got a feeling Leicester will coast through this one, Everton have surprised me a bit with their indifferent form so far and I think this will be comfortable for the foxes, who seem to be finding a decent patch of play, 3-1 Is 18/1 bet365 Spurs 3 Cardiff 0. Oh Cardiff what a start to the season you are having, a real tough opening set of games for them and we are only 7 games in, life will not get easier for the Bluebirds in this one, although Spurs are off of a CL Defeat, their perfomance against Barca was not to bad, little naive but not to bad, i think they just have way to much for Cardiff and will ease through this by 3 maybe even more sorry @StevieDay1983 I'm sitting on 3-0 though. Tottenham half time/Full time 5/6 Ladbrokes & CORAL, surely that is like buying money Watford 1 Bournemouth 2. I have no rhyme or reason for this but I just think the cherries will win and I don't know why just one of them scores I fancy with no logic, short and sweet this one. BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE 9/12 10BET & SportPesa Man United 3 Newcastle 1. United to score 3, have I banged my head, probably, at some point you have to think this sulking bunch of players will have to turn up for the fans if not the manager, I think they will be badly wounded by a hammering by the hammers and a woeful goal less draw v Valencia, that said it hasn't sparked them into action and if the rumour mill is to be believed defeat would cost Jose his job which would suit about 15 players!!!! Newcastle are poor also, uncertainty at every turn, I think United will be comfortable the other option is another dull 0-0. OVER 3.5 GOALS 13/5 betfair and BETVICTOR Fulham 1 Arsenal 3. The gunners definitely seem to have found their feet under Emery now, and I see them beating Fulham nicely here, although Fulham do have enough to give Arsenal a run for about an hour before Arsenal pull away. FIRST GOALSCORER: Ramsey 8/1 bet365, 10BET & SportPesa Southampton 0 Chelsea 3. Not much to say about this I don't think the saints are that good and Chelsea will have the firepower to kill this game by Half time and put their feet up,. Chelsea 3-0 is 12/1 bet365, BETFRED & BETSTARS Liverpool 3 Man City 1. YUP you read that right, Klopps reds tend to just attack City and City are definitely not used to that approach from opposition, but where this fixture is concerned attack is definitely Liverpools best defence, I have to say through gritted teeth I like how Klopp makes them play and he is very supportive (at least publicly ) where his players are concerned, I think Pep will be irritated by the fact that Liverpool sent City packing in last seasons CL. OVER 3.5 GOALS is 16/25 with BLACKTYPE Enjoy the weekend people i'm off for a curry and beer cheers
