Prediction League – Update

23 Sep

Things are hotting up in the prediction league. With 4 games down Alex, my Newcastle supporting (but not a real geordie) housemate has built up a convincing lead over me and Lawro, picking up 3 points compared to the 1 scored by his idiot-ship and myself.

With 3 points available for a correct score prediction, it’s still all to play for though. with a couple of accurate predictions likely to be anough to give someone an impressive early lead. Not only that, it means that there is plenty of opportunity for you to enter yourself!

In the meantime, I have a theory about Alex’s impressive return of three correct results out of 4, despite his misguided footballing preferences. He has two minor advantages over me and a big one over Lawrenson. The latter is obvious, he isn’t an utter biased, self interested, ignorent bullshit talking c*nt. His advantage over me I think comes from the fact he is generally knowledgable and has a balanced, outside perspective. Hence, he could easily assess our chances against United and City (slim) and he also judged that Liverpool were not as strong as their spending suggests and that they would come a-cropper, whereas I, downbeat about our early season form was far less optimistic.

Lawrenson falls into the same old traps, against us he predicted a draw (his normal formula being big teams at home don’t generally lose and inability to predict a bad result for Liverpool meaning a draw is his obvious choice). Hopefully this type of thinking will continue to hold BBC’s most idiotic pundit back, proving that the average fan does indeed know more about footie than Lawro.

Things are hotting up. Give me your predictions if you want to play!


Introducing… The Tottenham HotBlog Prediction League 2011

23 Aug

Bonjour, hola, willkommen, bienvenue and most importantly hello.

I’d like to introduce to you (as you may have gathered from the big letters up there, affectionately known as the post title) The Tottenham HotBlog Prediction League 2011.

Regular readers, for there are (not very) many of you, may notice the addition of a little link up there somewhere and a league table type arrangement over there somewhere. Now if you click on the little link up there, you’ll get just about all of the information you need about that little table over there.

Now the real reason for this post is to tell you (actual you, the one reading this right now) that you can take part too!

Now taking part requires no commitment whatsoever, you can provide me with a prediction once, every week, or whenever you feel like it. At this stage there is no prize on offer other than pride, but let me tell you, that is better than any physical prize I could possibly give. Even my car.

So whilst most of the details are up there, really it’s quite simple. All you have to do is let me know who you are… or as a minimum, what you’d like me to call you for the purpose of the league and your prediction each week that you’d like to give one. (It does mean you’ll have to check back each week, the cunning and beauty of my scheme, I have no shame in admitting) . I’ll award you with a whole 1 point for an accurate result a further 2 for the correct scoreline (i.e. 3 in total). The winner will be the person at the end of the season with the most points… Ideally that will not be Mark Lawrenson.

Obviously we are a week in, because I only came up with the idea last night. And only Premier League games apply for the purpose of the league, other than that, please do join in and get your predictions in for the next league game whenever your ready. They will all be publicised on the Prediction League page and I’ll update the table every week.

Oh and how can you tell me? Well, you can comment on the pediction page, or e-mail me, here: and I will be happy to help.

Good Luck!
