Edit: I actually meant to type weekend table round up. Oh never mind.
The random selection week on the Predicts turned out to be a curse on some of the teams and some of the predictors.
Ipswich let 3 in the last three minutes at West Brom which finished 4-nil to Mowbray’s mob. The gubbing of his beloved tractor boys affected MickMills prediction form and he free falls a massive 6 places down the table.
Oz-based predictor TheDog has boasted of his sleeping giants – the Shrimps of Morecambe, they are having a run in the early rounds of the League Cup and got to the giddy heights of the old 4th Division table. But on Saturday they embarrassed themselves by losing 3-nil at home to H*r*ford.
TheDog’s predictions also reflected this alarming lapse in their defence by dropping 5 places.
Before the beginning of the season the much written off Arsenal – because of the sale of Henry – shown that they are still in there to win it by coming from behind *ahem*… to Spurs (more about that below) to win 3-1 and the 2005/06 S&GBEPL champ Gooner81 leaps up 5 places to 3rd in the table.
In the firing line:
After blowing another 1-nil lead word is that Daniel Levy is back to whispering sweet nothings in the Ramos ear. Martin Jol’s position will be looked at again in the next international break next month. Things are not going smoothly at Seville right now, so Spurs might be in with a chance to replace one failing manager with another failing one.
But if they still can’t entice Ramos over to White Hart Lane there are rumours of Ronald Koeman, Harry Redknapp, Fabio Capello and Jurgen Klinsmann all being lined up to be wined and dined by the Spurs board.
Talking of Calfornia Klinsmann… LA Galaxy lost again at the weekend. At home to Houston Dynamo : 3-1. The competition now has got to be between Yallop and Jol on who gets their cards first.
On one hand there is the Tottenham board telling Martin Jol that they are looking for a top 4/Champions League qualification this season and on the other there is nothing else for the LA Galaxy to play for but their franchise owners will be concerned about the lack of Derek’s appearances on the pitch and the putting bums on seats/bring in the revenue for the rest of the season.
Both cases are financially motivated, but which bunch of suits will blink first ?
And on that bombshell a tune to play us out. No real footie connection with this one, posted out of pure indulgence and because I can.
