    Roy The Boy got a reaction from StevieDay1983 in Mourinho Sacked!   
    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

    Watford vs Cardiff
    There are some brilliant posts in this thread already ahead of this weekend's Premier League fixtures. I think we've got a great chance of getting some wins here. My focus turns to Cardiff's trip to Watford this 3pm kick-off this Saturday afternoon at Vicarage Road.
    Watford had a stunning start to the season. Things have calmed down a bit now and the early season winning run has been long forgotten. It's now 6 league games without a win. The fans still seem happy with manager Javi Gracia with the club still in 12th place but would a poor result here start to tip the scales in the other direction?
    Us Cardiff fans are still just happy to enjoy it all. Neil Warnock continues to have us defying the odds. Our home form is incredible with 4 wins from our last 5 at the Cardiff City Stadium. Our away form is another story with just 1 point, a solemn draw away to 10 man Huddersfield, the only reward on our travels. That said, our performances have deserved more.
    In the head-to-head, we possess a superior record to the Hornets. We have won 3, drawn 2, and lost just 1 of our last 6 meetings with Watford. Unfortunately, we've not played since 2014 so it's an archaic record but we'll still use it to our psychological advantage!
    The real mountain to climb comes in one statistic. It states that if Cardiff win this weekend then it will be the first time since 1962 that the Bluebirds have won back-to-back matches in the top flight. Worryingly, I'm not confident we can win but I certainly feel we can take a point.
    Every game, bar the odd blip such as the 2-1 loss to Burnley at home and the second half of the 4-1 away defeat to West Ham, we are improving. The players are becoming more streetwise for this level and their self belief is growing. I feel we can be a match for most teams this season and heading to an out-of-form Watford this weekend is a great chance to end that awful away form. Can we win? I wouldn't be surprised. I'm going to back us to draw at the very least but I actually think we can snatch something from this game if we go for it.

    Wolverhampton Wanderers V AFC Bournemouth
    AFC Bournemouth +0.75 AH @ 1.75 Betvictor
    As @Roy The Boy has already mentioned; this is a difficult match to predict. I do still think that the markets are overzealous with Wolves and I would not make them odds on at home to a Bouremouth side who are the more clinical infront of goal.
    To give Wolves their due, they have improved with regards to attacking performance in recent games and this is reflected in their ELO ratings. They have won two league games on the bounce and players like Diogo Jota are starting to get amongst the goals which bodes well for both him and the team going forward at EPL level.
    Despite this, we can see that Bournemouth still have a markedly superior chance conversion rate, their ELO performance is getting on for half a goal better and they are marginally ahead on key goal metrics. Striker Callum Wilson is also back in contention to play this weekend which is a big boost for Eddie Howe's team. 
    To summarise, we can see that Wolves are in a good moment and their attacking performances are improving. Despite these improvements, Bournemouth are still superior by most if not all key attacking metrics. Should Bournemouth be available on the +0.75 line here? Personally I think the markets are being generous and taking Bournemouth on said asian line @ 1.7 or above seems to be the value play in a match which is hard to predict.

    Roy The Boy got a reaction from gg-77 in PDC DARTS WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS PREDICTIONS   
    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.

    Some good points on here this week, here are mine!
    Burnley V Brighton
    @Mindfulness has called this match about right
     
    I'd agree with you all that it is time for a Burnley win. They showed a little more character against Liverpool in mid week, and they will see this game as an opportunity to get their first win. Based on the law of averages, Brighton have won their last 2 matches. Are they likely to win 3 in a row? I doubt it very much. Are Burnley due a win at last- Yes!
    Although I will lay off the result, instead opting for Corners, as I think the home side just have to take the game to Brighton.
    Also, Brighton have scored in each of their last five games, so BTTS could be a decent shout too
    Burnley most corners - 2.1 
    BTTS - 1.95
    Cardiff V Stains
    Quite simply 2 teams that will be going for it. As mentioned earlier by our our Welsh correspondent @StevieDay1983 Neil Warhorse will be looking for a reaction from his players after the midweek defeat. They have been playing well by all accounts, so I'm pretty confident that they will score. The visitors will also have a spring in their step now the new manager has arrived. I think this was evident on Wednesday, when some decent Spurs goalkeeping kept them to just 1 goal. I'd be pretty confident of them scoring too, so.....
    BTTS - 1.8
    O2.5 Goals - 2.1
    Wet Spam V Crappy Palarse
    After witnessing a lacklustre display from Palace in midweek, and with the Hammers hitting some decent form, I'd be confident in backing a comprehensive result for the home team. Palace's problem is scoring goals, so...
    West Ham to win to nil - 3.75
    Leicester V Spurs
    BTTS & O2.5 goals - 2.1
    Hopefully I'll get something right from this lot! Good luck

    Roy, you're right. That's the problem with us at the moment. We're not making the small moments count. Every time we concede the first goal away you can guarantee we have missed a golden chance literally seconds before. It's the brutal reality of the Premier League. The most annoying thing about the whole penalty issue is that Victor Camarasa wanted to take it but Joe Ralls refused to let anyone else have it. Camarasa was the player everyone, including Warnock, wanted to take it.
    I'm torn over Ralls. Never been his biggest fan. I've always felt he's had a fair share of lenience from fans (the same as Harris) because he's spent time in the club's youth set-up before coming into the first team. However, I felt he just about coped at Championship level. In the Premier League, he's out of his depth. He let us down by getting sent off against Tottenham and now he's missed this pen so the fans have finally lost patience with his attitude and performances.
    The key thing here is that after a disappointing display Warnock always has us bouncing back. You've all seen his changing room rants. I dread to think what he said after that West Ham game to the players. He was raging during the game. Everyone's talking about the Southampton new manager bounce. Watch out for our angry Warnock bounce!
    P.s. I apologise if we let you down!

    Cardiff vs Southampton
    OK, so I'm still nursing a wounded heart after our 3-1 defeat away to West Ham in midweek. It was a massive disappointment because we missed the penalty and really should have been ahead at that point anyway. Still, this Saturday delivers another crunch game at home against fellow strugglers Southampton in a 3pm kick-off at the Cardiff City Stadium.
    Cardiff have looked like they are adapting to Premier League life a bit better recently. The team in general is showing more confidence. The problem that still plagues us is momentary lapses of concentration. It cost us points against Leicester, Everton, and now West Ham over recent weeks. The top flight is a cruel mistress and it punishes those lapses.
    That's the difference between the Premier League and Championship. Right now, we're still outside the relegation zone but we need to pick up more points in those games where we compete and have our chances. We are in 16th place but just 2 points outside the bottom three. A loss here could see us slide back into the relegation zone heading into Christmas.
    Southampton are actually worse off than Cardiff. Mark Hughes was sacked a few days ago after just 1 win all season but the club has moved quickly to bring in former Ingolstadt and RB Leipzig manager Ralph Hasenhuttl. The Saints have a track record of making shrewd managerial appointments over recent years with the likes of Mauricio Pochettino, Ronald Koeman, and Claude Puel all delivering decent results. However, recent appointments of Mauricio Pellegrino and Mark Hughes haven't worked out quite as well. Hasenhuttl is a gamble but Saints don't have the luxury of a sure thing right now.
    The "Alpen Klopp" has a reputation for a high press game. That will play into our hands. We had teams come at us all season last year and it's what we built our counter attacking play on. I'm not sure Southampton currently have the personnel to maximise that strategy. Maybe they do. It'll depend how the players react to the new approach. I suppose the likes of Shane Long, Steven Davis, and Stuart Armstrong could adapt well.
    Anyway, this could be a tough game for both teams. Neil Warnock was clearly raging after Tuesday night so he'll get a reaction from the players. There have been calls from our fans for Joe Ralls to be dropped and for Victor Camarasa to move central for a while. I think the penalty miss and the general performance from Ralls on Tuesday could trigger it. I can see Murphy coming back into the side with Hoilett on the other wing. Camarasa, Arter, and Gunnarsson in the middle.
    I'm torn about what to back. I really think we can get the win here. There's a lot of talk about the new manager bounce but it's a big job Hasenhuttl has. He needs to change more than just the tactics. He needs to change the mentality and the morale of the team. We're turning the Cardiff City Stadium into a bit of a fortress and I think we could sneak the win here. That is me being an optimistic fan though so you might be better advised following @Mindfulness's advice on the draw! However, I do think Hasenhuttl could well still save Southampton. Might need a bit of time and a couple of new faces to see that change happen.

    On paper this game should be close, Cardiff have looked decent in recent matches, particularly at home where you can see the spirit level is good. Southampton sit 2 places and 2 points below Cardiff in the table and the away side should be buoyed by the arrival of new manager Ralph Hasenhuttl.
    ELO ratings between the two are virtually identical and I think we have an increased chance of stalemate here so I will back the draw.
     
    Newcastle Utd V Wolverhampton Wanderers
    X @ 3.15 Unibet
    Both these teams achieved morale boosting results in midweek and it's hard to see either side loosing on Sunday. After discounting the home game against West Ham, we can see that Newcastle games are generally close and usually decided by a single goal margin. They are hard to beat under Benitez and I like their defence even more now that Jamaal Lascelles has returned from injury.
    Wolves are a bit of a glamour club now and their international calibre imports enjoy playing in games against the big 6. I still feel they have problems scoring goals and opposition manager Rafa Benitez has the tactical nous to disrupt Wolves's?ez?'es?'ss?'sss? tricky 3-4-3 system. 
    ELO ratings correlate with my view of the game. I can see this one ending in a low scoring stalemate so I will back the draw here.

    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

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.

    @Roy The Boy, interesting thoughts. I'll quickly reply to your West Ham versus Cardiff comments and your question directed at me.
    Firstly, there is a general feeling that we could get something at West Ham tomorrow night. The players are fighting until the bitter end in each game and our performance levels are improving overall. It's only been momentary lapses in concentration that have let us down away from home. I'd like to see the 3-5-2 again but I'd prefer Bennett in on one wing. Camarasa and Hoilett left us too exposed. I have a feeling Warnock might resort to 4-5-1 though. If we do that I don't think we can expect more than a draw but I just have a feeling we could get it. A 1-1 or 0-0 draw really wouldn't surprise me.
    Secondly, I agree about Warnock being harshly labelled. Our fans love him. I love him. I had a soft spot for him before he joined us. He's always said that Cardiff are his kind of club and our fans have always said he's our kind of manager. This season has been brilliant. Even when we were bottom we were all loving it. Vincent Tan knows that. He knows the fans will keep turning up if Warnock is there and he trusts Warnock both on the pitch and off it. I'd be amazed if Warnock is sacked. No matter what happens. My feeling is that if we stay up he will likely resign unless Tan persuades him to stay. If we go down, he'll give it one more year to get us back up and then leave I think.
    @The Sexless Innkeeper, it's funny you say that. I've felt for a while that Chelsea have a brilliant starting XI. Not up to the standard of Manchester City or Liverpool but competing with Tottenham and Arsenal. However, after that they struggle. Eden Hazard is going off the boil so it'll be fascinating to see if the other players step up. I feel Willian has more to offer this season. Luckily, Loftus-Cheek appears to be raising his game. Kepa has also adapted far better than anyone could have expected. You'll win against Wolves. Unless they change something they could be in serious trouble.

    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

    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

    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

    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
