It’s Saturday again and that means a whole host of football matches.

I made some predictions for the mid-week games just gone, I didn’t do great but didn’t disgrace myself either. From the 6 games predicted I got 3 results correct although no perfect scores.

Here’s a breakdown of my predictions and results…

My Prediction Actual Result
Man City 1-1 West Ham Man City 1-2 West Ham
Southampton 1-1 Watford Southampton 1-3 Watford
Birmingham 0-2 Liverpool Birmingham 0-7 Liverpool
Leeds 1-1 Crystal Palace Leeds 0-1 Crystal Palace
Chelsea 2-1 Newcastle Chelsea 1-0 Newcastle
Charlton 2-2 Middlesbrough Charlton 0-0 Middlesbrough

Now here is a list of predictions for this weekend’s Premiership games as well as 3 Championship games involving promotion chasing Leeds, Watford and Sheffield United.

Aston Villa v Fulham ~ 2-1 Villa
Chelsea v Man City ~ 2-0 Chelsea
Liverpool v Everton ~ 2-1 Liverpool
Portsmouth v Arsenal ~ 1-2 Arsenal
Postponed
Sunderland v Blackburn ~ 1-2 Blackburn
Wigan v West Ham ~ 1-1 Draw
Charlton v Newcastle ~ 1-1 Draw
Man Utd v Birmingham ~ 2-0 Man Utd
Middlesbrough v Bolton ~ 2-1 Middlesbrough
Tottenham v West Brom ~ 2-1 Tottenham
Leeds v Stoke ~ 2-0 Leeds Utd
Sheff United v Southampton ~ 2-1 Sheffield Utd
Watford v Millwall ~ 2-0 Watford

As you can see Leeds take on Stoke at Elland Road. The Whites haven’t won in 3 games which is unusual considering their first-rate form this season. I think they’ll win today though although they’ll have to watch out for Stoke.

Stoke remind me of Leeds United at this stage last season when we played Ipswich at Elland Road (a game in which I attended). Leeds (like Stoke now) were clear of relegation but the play offs were out of reach. Ipswich were riding high in 3rd place, battling it out with Wigan for 2nd (similar to Leeds/Watford/Sheff Utd this season). I thought Leeds would lose as did many fans. It was a scrappy game which ended 1-1 and put a serious dent in Ipswich’s promotion hopes and of course led to them staying in the Championship. Stoke could do this to Leeds today by drawing against us or God forbid – winning. Still going for a 2-1 Leeds win though. It’l be tough, scrappy and ugly.

Hoping we’ll also see more of new signing Jermaine Beckford today, recently signed from a non-league side he was working in the RAC just the other week fitting windscreens. Looked impressive on Tuesday night by all accounts (the only positive to be taken from the game). Sparkster.net is now an Official Jermaine Beckford Fan.

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
