Edward is not very good at this prediction lark.

I have been doing this for three weeks now, and they aren’t getting any better, but here are my predictions!

Barclays Premier League

Arsenal 2-0 Bolton – Arsenal will be without Van Persie but I still think that Bolton, who in Archie Knox have the biggest loon of a caretaker manager ever, will be easy pickings.

Aston Villa 1-0 Man Utd – I think Man Utd will struggle at Villa Park against a resurgent and well run Villa, and I can see Villa pipping Man Utd by one goal.

Blackburn 1-1 Reading – I fancy Reading to get a draw at Blackburn who don’t have Roque Santa Cruz, and will miss him like a dwarf misses a stepladder.

Everton 3-3 Liverpool – I would love for Everton to smash Liverpool but don’t want to tempt fate (touch wood, touch wood) so I am going for a classic high scoring derby game instead.

Fulham 1-2 Derby – Every week I tip Derby, and they fail to do what I tell them to, so again I am going to mercilessly flog this dead horse and go for a surprise 2-1 away win for Billy Davies’ lads.

Man City 2-0 Birmingham – These days there are two teams worth paying attention to in Manchester, and I can’t see Birminham’s bore-draw water torture tactics working against Sven’s titans.

Middlesbrough 0-1 Chelsea – Puppet Avram to work his magic, secure a 1 nil away victory, and all whilst juggling want-away Drogba and Mr Difficult Andriy Shevchenko, and make no mistake he’ll do it in style…probably with a 4-4-1 formation.

Wigan 2-2 Portsmouth – I am looking for these two giants of the footballing world to rip chunks out of each other and nab two goals apiece.

West Ham 1-2 Sunderland – I think Sunderland, who were burned at Ashburton Grove, will be able to get a surprise win at West Ham.

Newcastle 3-4 Tottenham – I saw Newcastle a couple of weeks ago and Tottenham, with their potent strikeforce, could cause them some problems. Both sides are shoddy at the back so I’m going for a veritable goal feast.
