Football predictions for Saturday 21st November and Sunday 22nd November in the year 2020.
OK, I know some people are going to be upset (especially Sydney_Iron who posted a 'can barely be bothered effort' during the time I put this together), but Coffee NAGGED me on WhoMail into filling in for him.
Given the time I've put into this, I'm fucking posting it, and the moderators can vote on which one stands.
Or a mod with a stick up his arse can delete this one.


So, let's start with Saturday's fixtures, shall we. It seems logical.

Saturday 21st November 2020


Newcastle 12:30 Chelsea

Fuck, do I have to give a bit of SCHPIEL??
Bloody hell, well Newcastle have had an average sort of start with 3 wins, 3 losses and 2 draws. Even stevens, you might say. You might NOT.
Chelsea have been a bit up and down, but typically lie just 3 points off top spot.

I don't like Chelsea, so Home win.



Aston Villa 15:00 Brighton

After a STONKING start to the season, the Villans goal machine has been productive at the wrong end of the field of late.

Brighton? They really could do with a win. They won't get it, in my considerable opinion, but I fancy a share of the spoils here.
Draw (in case that wasn't obvious to you)


Tottenham 17:30 Man City

Well, who do I like least here? A club that gave buying success a bad name, or a club that the media has been cringing and fawning over for as long as I can remember (which is a very long time).
Away win.


Man Utd 20:00 West Brom

Manchester's Red team have been decidedly average. The Baggies can only aspire to that kind of (relative) excellence. The Premier League will need to be fumigated come May if they continue to stink the place up.
A SIGNIFICANT home win.



Moving along to Sunday 22nd November 2020

Fulham 12:00 Everton

Fulham are struggling (according to my sources), but despite Everton's strong start to the season, Fulham have a better return (3 points) in the last three games than Everton (ZERO).
As we all know, Fulham can count themselves hard done by not to have had a share of the spoils last time out.
The Cottagers will be craving an upturn in their fortunes. I sense they'll get it. Penalties will have been the main focus at training in the last two weeks, I'm sure.
Home win.


Sheffield United 14:00 West Ham United

The absence of spectators doesn't seem to agree with The Blades. A kind of inverted 'stage fright', perhaps?
That said, I have a long standing rule of thumb, which goes like this;
"Can't buy a win? All hope seems to have gone?
YOU NEED THE 'WEST HAM TEAM' !!"

West Ham to play The Blades into some form, not to mention some much needed confidence. Two possible caveats;
1 - The absence of the home support.
2- The faint chance that Moyes might choose a system that actually supplies some service to Haller.

Caveat 2 seems unlikely.
Home win.


Leeds United 16:30 Arsenal

Both sides a bit hot and cold. Leeds seem to have a penchant for lots of goals at each end. Arsenal a bit more Arsenal like.
I'd LOVE to see Arsenal lose, but head says goalless.
Draw (in case you hadn't worked THAT out).


Liverpool 19:15 Leicester City

Top versus third. Two recent PL winners.
Should be good. Could be boring.
Who knows?

Let's go for GOOD.

4-4.

Fuck me that took a long time!

Note to Coffee.
Make sure SvenSON is available next time you decide to go AWOL! Otherwise, Squiddly's offering will be all there is.

I actually prefer this to the regular one. It has layers.

I know what you're trying to do, SvenSON!

Don't make me go to bed cranky!

And with that, GOODNIGHT!

Re: Matchweek #9
Carroll’s last goal ... Jan 2019 v Birmingham in the FA Cup
His last Premier League goal ... April 2018 with his late equaliser at home to Stoke which helped keep us up

Matchweek #9
Without Callum Wilson & Shelvey (why is he on the bench?) Newcastle look very toothless
On comes Carroll .... yet to score for Newcastle

To be fair, this thread does what it says on the tin.

And at the end of the day (or weekend), I don't like Mondays.

Syders lack of depth cost him a few marks but ont the plus side,he at least compiled a FULL fixture list.

Mr antly.

Please note,in these times that we live in the Soccer weekends extend beyond Sunday. Must do better.

Saying that,Ron just nicks it for me on the grounds that he used actual WORDS in his analysis.

But all said and done,Coffers pisses all over this pair of wannabees.

Thanks for your kind words, Duke.

Nice work, Ron.

A much better effort than the other excuse for a thread. No offence, Syd.

Thanks anyway.

I've considered that, Coffers, and arrived at the following conclusion;

Now put that sugar down.
