Here we go again, my efforts last week were impeccably balanced Goldilocks predictions – not too right, not too wrong. So I’ve been given another chance this week.
Saturday, 06 October
Aston Villa 2-0 West Ham – I like Villa a lot this season, if they carry on like this they will shed their ‘boring’ tag. Certainly Birmingham being announced (by The Sun) as the city with the most sexpots per capita helps improve their dull image, as do players like Gabby Agbonlahor.
Man Utd 3-1 Wigan – I think a 3-1 victory is a definite possibility – with the 1 being for Wigan’s Jason Koumas who has had an elemental upsurge of late.

Arsenal 3-0 Sunderland – Sorry you Mackems, I cannot see anything but an Arsenal win here.
Blackburn 1-2 Birmingham – Blackburn have spluttered like a Skoda in winter recently, and whilst Birmingham aren’t setting the world alight, I think they could pull this one out of the bag.
Bolton 0-2 Chelsea – I think Avram Grant is a puppet, and I also think that Roman Abramovich doesn’t have a clue, but Chelsea’s team alone (even with second hand tactics) should do little Sam’s tribe of Lancastrian ne’er-do-wells.
Fulham 3-3 Portsmouth – I predict at biggie at the Cottage with these two teams indulging in a point sharing orgy of goals.
Liverpool 2-1 Tottenham – Not that I think Spurs will play badly or even deserve to lose, I can see a couple of Robbo ‘gifts’ though.
Man City 2-0 Middlesbrough – I saw ‘Boro play Everton last week and although they passed the ball better than the Toffees their finishing was quite frankly obscene. Elano? Ela-YES! (sorry for that)
Newcastle 0-1 Everton – Everton have had a shaky few weeks, but their confidence has surely been boosted now, I reckon Yak will stumble around the pitch looking for stray pennies for 89 minutes, and they wallop one in the onion bag in the last minute.
Reading 0-1 Derby – I will keep tipping Derby until they bloody well prove me right.
