Premier League Fixtures Week 16

Filed under: Football — Tags: , — Nerdfly @ 1:11 pm

Here are the Premier League Fixtures for this weekend and my predictions for the results.

I have decided to make it a bit more interesting and compare my predictions with Mark Lawrenson’s predictions from the BBC website. (Thanks to soccer blog for this idea) Lawro’s predictions are the one’s in green.

Saturday 6th December

Arsenal  V  Wigan  15:00  (3-0)  (2-0) (1-0)

Blackburn  V  Liverpool  15:00  (1-2)  (0-2) (1-3)

Bolton  V  Chelsea  15:00  (0-1)  (0-2) (0-2)

Fulham  V  Man City  12:45  (1-1)  (2-1) (1-1)

Hull City  V  Middlesbrough  15:00  (0-0)  (1-1) (2-1)

Man Utd  V  Sunderland  17:30  (4-0)  (3-0) (1-0)

Newcastle  V  Stoke City  15:00  (2-2)  (2-0) (2-2)

Sunday 7th December

Everton  V  Aston Villa  16:00  (2-1)  (2-2)  (2-3)

West Brom  V  Portsmouth  15:00  (1-0)  (2-0)  (1-1)

Monday 8th December

West Ham  V  Tottenham  20:00  (1-1)  (1-2)  (0-2)

So all the results are now in and I have decided to follow Monkey magazines point scoring allocation of 3 points for a perfect match, and 1 point for a correct result.

So after the first week of predictions the scores are as follows:

Myself:   10pts

Lawro:     7pts

The ‘Big Four’ Fail to Score!

Filed under: Football — Tags: , — Nerdfly @ 11:01 am


This weekend for the first time in 16 years not on of the Premierships so-called ‘big four’ managed to find the net. Chelsea and Liverpool were both held at home 0-0. Man United were also held 0-0 away at Aston Villa, whilst Arsenal were beaten 3-0 away at Manchester City.

Do these results prove that the Premiership is getting better and that the other teams are slowly catching the top teams, or was it just a freaky weekend in football?
