Hotspur’s Hunches #5b

Good morning.

The second wave of the weekend’s Premier League pickings. Yesterday’s hunches were a mixed bag accuracy wise. Laudrup’s remark about bungs to encourage teams to win matches was clearly a cry for help. I was closer on the Cheatski game who struggled, dived and dived again to nick a goal against the Potters.

I was pleased to see Southampton get back on the their feet. Villa fans will spend today on the settee eating ice cream, watching Bridget Jones’ DVDs. The Baggies ground out a goal in what looked like an uninspiring business from the bits I caught. I got the West Ham game wrong and the Fulham win panned out.

Liverpool vs Manchester United

Whiners vs Gloaters. Brendan Rodgers is looking for his first Premier League win. He’d be better off putting a ‘Missing – Have You Seen My…’ card in his local newsagent’s window than asking Sluralix for it. I don’t like either of these two, a nil nil draw would be the best outcome for the table but I’d like Liverpool to get beaten. Prediction? Away win by two goals.

Newcastle vs Norwich

Tough gig this for the Canaries. I’ve a soft spot for Delia’s mob, their fans are a decent bunch and they will travel in number, brightening up Tyneside with their old school scarves and crazy vowels. Pardew’s gang will quite possibly destroy them. A home win, maybe 3 0r 4 nil.

Manchester City vs Arsenal

City’s performance against Real Madrid was seriously uninspiring stuff. They remind me of that army of brooms marching in Fantasia. You raise your eyebrows, but it’s not enjoyable viewing. Arsenal’s form isn’t as rock solid as they might have you believe. So far they have beaten Liverpool and a self-combusting Southampton.Home win, 3-1.

Tottenham vs QPR

The longer the wait for kick off has gone on the more cautiously optimistic I am becoming. My ‘win by a goal’ mantra is edging out into thoughts of a cheeky 2-0. Could we get three? I really have a good vibe about Dempsey and whatever happens it would be great to see him get on the score sheet.

    I just can’t see us keeping a clean sheet!

    • BrisbaneSpur says:

      Being no.1 you could have at least stated:

      “I think Spurs will score more!”

      Talk about setting a tone….. :angry:

      • BrizzleSpur says:

        Just being honest, and the result speaks for itself mate!

        Defence isn’t clicking yet especially with no solid LB and Walker making cock-ups.

        But a win was on the cards and we got it!

    • MarseilleYid says:

      9-1, just like Wigan. F*** the clean sheet.

    you know, i think every result will go our way today, we will finish the weekend ahead of the scum

    It’s going to be a tough game-but if we can kick on from Thursday-then I hope-we’ll start moving forward. We need the crowd onside and doing something really radical,like supporting the lads. No repetition of the Norwich game please, awful atmosphere makes for an awful game!

    • Hartley says:

      Stating the obvious I know, but an early goal should see both a solid home win and the crowd onside like days of old….COYS

      • essexian76 says:

        It would be nice Harts-but patience from us is also required if we don’t score early on or even concede-it’s still early days in AVB’s reign so perhaps a little tinkering and fine tuning is still require COYS

      • Spurstacus says:

        Do you think that if we finish the game one goal ahead of QPR, we’ll win? Just a haunch. :shifty:

  • DessySpur says:

    If we put the same effort in today as we did against Lazio we will smash them, I hope I am seeing the future as we get stronger every week.
