Prediction League Update – Go AH!

So, in a complete turn around of fortune from PL1, American Hammer storms ahead with two perfect score predictions on the bounce – a first for the C&BPL. Harry, son of HM languishes near the foot of the table despite 3 points this week.

The trouble for Harry is that points were flowing this week, with virtually everyone predicting 3 points for the Hammers up at Turf Moor. Only Gav and Adeluded missed out in fact, with other perfect scores being predicted by AoF and Stelios who consequently surge up the table.

Next week will see a little more variation, with a couple of optimists going for a Hammers win and another couple reckoning a draw is the likely outcome. Unsurprisingly, most predict a City win!

We’ll see. I wonder, if we were allowed to predict NOW, how many might dare to predict a West Ham home win?

New recruits continue to shine as Hammers are up to 4th!

Whilst most of us fancied a win today, and committed our faith in terms of the prediction league, given that we support West Ham who, hitherto have always had that unfortunate habit of imploding at just the wrong moment, today’s conquest of The Clarets should not be underestimated.

I haven’t yet see the game, although I gather that it was Burnley who were out of the traps quickest, hit the woodwork a couple of times and really deserved a half time lead that never came their way. After the break, the story was entirely different and our new triumvirate of Valencia, Sakho and Song apparently exerted their class. Cresswell too was apparently outstanding today, whipping in several delicious in-swinging crosses down the left hand side. It was good to see Noble back in, from my point of view, although I know some are less keen on him than I. I understand he did what he does. He is Mr Dependable, for my money.

Only one downer for me today – Cole scored! Bring on the ‘always believe in your soul’ brigade and another prolonged period when Cole doesn’t score, probably picking up another short term contract into the bargain!

Next week it’s a free hit against a rampant Manchester City. Nothing expected from anyone but, you know what, the boys from the north west just might get a bit of a surprise.
