Edward’s predictions stink, but he’ll soldier on.

My predictions are consistently as rotten as an old sailors barnacled arse, but I will valiantly fight on.

Derby 0-1 West Ham
– Blood Derby, I have backed them to the hilt, and the Rams always let me down. Even though the Hammers are crippled with injuries I’m going to go for a West Ham win, safe in the knowledge that the Ram’s will probably get three points.

Liverpool 2-1 Fulham – Fulham could be in the top 3 if games ony lasted 45 minutes, and Liverpool would be the greatest team in the world if they played disinterested Turks at home every week. What these teams will make of each other is another matter, but I think Liverpool should win easily at Anfield, with Fulham going 1-0 up before half time obviously.

Sunderland 2-0 Newcastle – Derby games are always hard to predict, but I think Sunderland can do this one. Newcastle have just got off the back of the dire home loss to Portsmouth and Big Sam, lashing out at the media, is clearly feeling the heat. The Stadium of Light will be a cauldron, and I think Newcastle will wilt, especially with Keane screaming from the bench.

Birmingham 2-2 Aston Villa – Birmingham are a plucky team at times but I think when they lock horns with Villa they will have to make do with sharing the points. Kapo is on top form, but Villa have some wonderful attacking options.

Bolton 2-0 Middlesbrough – Returning from their glorious 2-2 draw in Munich I think Bolton will be on the crest of a wave, and who better to play than supine Middlesbrough.

Chelsea 3-2 Everton
– Everton have won 5 on the spin in all tournaments, but I think a game against attack minded Chelsea will be a bridge too far, I expect quite a few goals though with Yobocop often nodding off and Terry and Cech injured.

Man Utd 2-0 Blackburn
– Irrestistable Man Utd will beat Blackburn, who are starting to lose a little bit of their early season spark.

Portsmouth 3-1 Man City – Pompey have had some thrilling victories at late and they should nab all three points against City who don’t like travelling.

Tottenham 1-0 Wigan – Juande is trying to make Spurs a little bit more sensible (just a little bit mind), and I expect a businesslike 1-0 win here.

Reading 0-2 Arsenal – Arsenal shouldn’t have too much of a problem beating Reading, as long as they don’t try and break the World Record for longest string of passes without a shot.
