Matchday 4 – October 3, 2020

Results will be posted on October 3, 2020! For now, a quick post of the upcoming games.
I will fix the issue with the email subject missing the date, and the email body missing the away teams for the next week.

I will post people’s picks Saturday so that people can see that I did capture the predictions correctly. I failed to setup the form properly.

AA: “Come on Brentford! 🐝”
That’s the wrong league. You need to go to WideOfTheJumper.com

JE: “: Lying in hospital.”
You should tell the truth in there! Best wishes. (It’s nothing serious everyone)

KMFE: “I did pick some comedy scores — was tempted to make one of my draw picks 7-7 or something just to be down with the 2020 pattern of reality…”
That’s two-points if it’s a draw! That said, I think there’s only been one draw this year (doesn’t rush to check the accuracy of said statement just to be down with the 2020 pattern of reality).lping.

ME: “Let’s hope that VAR keeps its head down this week…it is starting to really ruin the game.”
Not sure I agree with “starting” but I also this that this virus thing isn’t he

ME: “Hoping Spuds can turn Man U over this week…this is the only result that matters!”
I won’t agree on that result mattering .. but only because it might upset the Man U fans here.

Arsenal
LWW
2-1
Sheffield United
LLL
Arsenal 1-1 Sheffield United 18 Jan 2020
Sheffield United 1-0 Arsenal 21 Oct 2019

Sheffield United are yet to win so I wouldn’t be surprised to see them hammer the Arse. I’m not going to predict that though.

Aston Villa
WW
0-2
Liverpool
WWW
Liverpool 2-0 Aston Villa 05 Jul 2020
Aston Villa 1-2 Liverpool 02 Nov 2019

I predict that one of these teams will be undefeated at the end of the day. I predict that team will be Liverpool. Liverpool have the players that can most skillfully bounce the ball of the defenders arms and win penalties. Those skills translate to the ability to score normal goals as well.

Chelsea
DLW
2-0
Crystal Palace
LWW
Crystal Palace 2-3 Chelsea 07 Jul 2020
Chelsea 2-0 Crystal Palace 09 Nov 2019
Crystal Palace 0-1 Chelsea 30 Dec 2018
Chelsea 3-1 Crystal Palace 04 Nov 2018
Chelsea 2-1 Crystal Palace 10 Mar 2018

I expected Chelsea to do better in their first three games. I expected Palace to do worse in their opening games. I’m not saying that because it explains why I picked the way I did. I am saying that to explain why I’m not doing very well this year.

Everton
WWW
3-1
Brighton and Hove Albion
LWL
Everton 1-0 Brighton and Hove Albion 11 Jan 2020
Brighton and Hove Albion 3-2 Everton 26 Oct 2019
Brighton and Hove Albion 1-0 Everton 29 Dec 2018
Everton 3-1 Brighton and Hove Albion 03 Nov 2018
Everton 2-0 Brighton and Hove Albion 10 Mar 2018

Brighton are improved but Everton are more so. It feels like they could score three each week.

Leeds United
WWL
1-2
Manchester City
LW

Leeds will not put three or four past CIteh but they will score. Man City are struggling because their current available team only cost $300M and that’s not enough to put together a decent back four. It’s not Pep’s fault that they are struggling – it wasn’t his decision to spend million on 14 lbs of dead weight (John Stones- geddit)

Leicester City
WWW
2-0
West Ham United
WLL
Leicester City 4-1 West Ham United 22 Jan 2020
West Ham United 1-2 Leicester City 28 Dec 2019
West Ham United 2-2 Leicester City 20 Apr 2019
Leicester City 1-1 West Ham United 27 Oct 2018
Leicester City 0-2 West Ham United 05 May 2018

David Moyes is still there? I would put his picture on a sack but I lose that file when my laptop motherboard blew up. Leicester are good aren’t they.

Manchester United
WL
2-1
Tottenham Hotspur
DWL
Tottenham Hotspur 1-1 Manchester United 19 Jun 2020
Manchester United 2-1 Tottenham Hotspur 04 Dec 2019
Tottenham Hotspur 0-1 Manchester United 13 Jan 2019
Manchester United 0-3 Tottenham Hotspur 27 Aug 2018
Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 Manchester United 31 Jan 2018

Gareth is back! Dele is still away! These are good omens; however, I cant help but think that Spuds are looking for a Mourinho replacement already. Players know this and will barely show up.

Newcastle
DLW
2-0
Burnley
LL
Newcastle 0-0 Burnley 29 Feb 2020
Burnley 1-0 Newcastle 14 Dec 2019
Newcastle 2-0 Burnley 26 Feb 2019
Burnley 1-2 Newcastle 26 Nov 2018
Newcastle 1-1 Burnley 31 Jan 2018

Dyche is my new clear front runner for the sack. There is clearly something wrong at Burnley. The fact that they are playing Newcastle and I’m calling them out as the team with issues says everything. No one wants to play in defense for Burnley so they will be shut out. I was going with 1-0 but he referees love giving cheap penalties from their office in London or wherever it is.

Southampton
WLL
2-1
West Bromwich Albion
DLL
West Bromwich Albion 2-3 Southampton 03 Feb 2018
Southampton 1-0 West Bromwich Albion 21 Oct 2017
West Bromwich Albion 0-1 Southampton 08 Apr 2017
Southampton 1-2 West Bromwich Albion 31 Dec 2016

How good are you that you go 3-0 up against Chelsea in the first half ? How bad are you that you lose 3-0 in the second half. Bad enough to lose, I reckon.

Wolverhampton
LLW
2-0
Fulham
LLL
Wolverhampton 1-0 Fulham 04 May 2019
Fulham 1-1 Wolverhampton 26 Dec 2018
Fulham 2-0 Wolverhampton 24 Feb 2018
Wolverhampton 2-0 Fulham 03 Nov 2017

Time for the Wolverhampton Wanderers to quit us wondering when they will show up again and show up again. Fulham will finish in the bottom three and will have four LLLLs next to their name this time next week.
