Redno2009 reacted to thfc in Premier League Predictions > Nov 2nd & 3rd
Wolves +1 is my main fancy this week. Wolves always up their game against the big six, and won at Man City only a couple of weeks ago.
Arsenal are in a state of disarray (as usual) and the atmosphere at the club seems to be turning a bit toxic like in the last of Wenger's days with the club. Crystal Palace managed to get a draw at the Emirates last week even though they were 2-0 down after 10 minutes. This seems to be a good time for a team to be playing Arsenal, especially as they managed to lose the cup game to Liverpool in midweek in heartbreaking fashion.
I don't fully trust Wolves to get the win, but I think they are more than capable of getting at least a draw so happy to take them +1 at just over evens (various).

Redno2009 reacted to BillyHills in Latest Tables - Week 1
Some very sad news reached me this weekend when I was told that one of our members Woodys Way, had passed away over the Christmas period.
His real name was Graham, he had been ill for a while and his wife kindly let me know yesterday. I met Graham once while I was on holiday in Dorset, he had been a member of the PL since 2004.
Woody was a keen member of most of our competitions and never missed a TC in 14 years, he was completely blind and I once helped him set up some screen-reading software so he could read the sporting life by hovering his mouse over the words, it was amazing how he coped. In later years his lovely wife Janet read out the fixtures and posted his fancies.
As a mark of respect Woodys Way will be left in the latest tables for the duration of this mini-season.

Just an early heads-up for anyone wanting to know what they are going to do without the prospect of entering the Tipsters Competition each weekend once the season finishes in 3 weeks time.
Have no fear the PL is here to occupy you for a few weeks during June and July!
We will be running our very popular World Cup prediction competition.
Details will follow over the next couple of weeks on how to enter and the format we will be using.
Entries will need to be finalised before the first match kicks off on June 14th.
After that date you can just sit back and watch the action and see all of your predictions come true (or not).
No need to register just enter your selections when required. (details to follow)
Spread the word, the PL World Cup Competition is back

* Just to let everyone know, there will be a rule change put in place for the start of the final 'mini season' on March 10th.
From that day no bets will be accepted that are related in any way, in other words you can only use a team once in your bet whether that be BTTS, Over/Unders or 1,X,2.
Any bets posted in error will be settled on the first part of the bet and the others treated as NR's.
