More changes in the nearly complete season-long predictions fiasco. I’ll have commentary for games for which I actually have something to say, while others will just have a guess at the score, saving me the trouble of trying to think of something that's not even that witty, and saving you the trouble of reading it.
146-151, with 32 spot on for the season-to-date.
Reading v Fulham, 10am, FSC: Reading got stomped by a resurgent Newcastle last week, while Fulham blew a chance to get points on the board at home against Sunderland. Fulham’s most likely going down, and Reading at home has been far different from Reading away all season. Reading 2-0
Tottenham v Middlesbrough, 10am, Setanta: Spurs 2-1
Sunderland v Manchester City, 10am, Setanta Xtra: Sunderland 1-0
Birmingham v Everton, 10am: 1-1
Bolton v West Ham, 10am: 1-1
Derby v Aston Villa, 10am: Villa 2-0
Portsmouth v Newcastle, 12:15pm, FSC: Admittedly, despite the frequent potshots, I’m actually pleased Keegan’s gotten Newcastle’s bearings straight. Pompey at home is always a tough task though, and a draw would be a very good result for the Geordies. 2-2
Manchester Utd v Arsenal, 11am Sunday, FSC: If Arsenal win, there’s an actual three-way title race, given Chelsea’s at home against Wigan. If it ends all square, Chelsea could only be a point behind United. Pity that Arsenal’s only won one league game in their last eight attempts. United 2-1
Chelsea v Wigan, 3pm Monday, Setanta: Chelsea hasn’t lost at Stamford Bridge in the league since February 2004. Chelsea 2-0
Liverpool v Blackburn is Sunday at 8:30am on Setanta.
