Thank God for football ay. With many of us feeling like we’re dying after the New Year celebrations, what better way to ease the anxious and depressive thoughts brought on by alcohol by being thrown back into normality courtesy of Premier League football.
The last round of selections produced a small loss with only 3 matches going our way. All 3 were above evens though so the loss hardly made a dent in last week’s astronomical profits. Crystal Palace held on right until the 66th minute and if that had finished a draw we’d have made Paul the Octopus look like a guesser by comparison. I say held out but by all reports Palace were the better side up until the goal.

Can’t see any problems for Man City in the early kick off against Swansea. City have been sublime for the most part this season. They had a few dodgy away results early on but seem to have that sorted now and are undefeated in their last 3. The shine seems to have come off Laudrup’s team and they don’t pose the same threat as last season.
There’s some intriguing battles involving teams at the foot of the table this weekend none more so than Fulham who host West Ham. It’s the team that can’t stop conceding against the team that can’t score. West Ham have scored more since the re-introduction of Carlton Cole however and did score 3 last time out.
I’m hoping that Arsenal are as bad as they were against Newcastle and that Cardiff can nick an early goal. My estimates don’t have them as short as the market and I’m hopeful of an upset.
It’s the same story in the game at Anfield and Liverpool did lose the reverse fixture against Hull who will be full of confidence after their 6-0 thrashing of Fulham. Let’s hope Suarez chose New Year’s eve to finish off all that Corona he was pictured buying at Costco.
Also looking forward to seeing if Man Utd can continue the rebuilding process. They’ve won all of their last 6 matches and I personally think they’ll win comfortably against Tottenham. His attacking approach may be pleasing some fans for now but I’m not sure that Tim Sherwood is up to the job.
Happy New Year !
