Football crazy

Anything goes, but keep it seemly...

I can't resist pointing out this:
The last time Havant & Waterlooville played Swansea, Havant won (FA cup 3rd round 2007-8)
The last time Swansea played Hull, Swansea won (Carling Cup 2nd round 2008-9)
The last time Hull played Arsenal, Hull won (Premiership 2008)
The last time Arsenal played Man U, Arsenal won (Yesterday)

So the next time Havant play Man U... make your predictions...

Damn... Havant have just been knocked out of the FA Cup by Brentford... so it won't happen for some time at least...

(As for the Premiership, I think that Chelsea and Liverpool will just run away from everybody else, and I am starting to have doubts about Tottenham's relegation...)

Tottenham 4 Liverpool 2
Chelsea 1 Burnley 1 (Burnley win on penalties)
Glyn wins lottery.
Sadly only 2 of these unlikely events happened today.

The Lakers lost their first game today (at home to the Pistons).
The Celtics also lost at home against the Nuggets.
The Jazz lost to the minnow Bobcats.
The Rockets lost to the Spurs despite a 3-1 advantage on attendance of each team's "Big 3".
The Pacers lost to the 76ers, blowing a lead of 26.

Based on these results, here is a projected prediction about tonight's matches:

Arsenal will lose to Villa at home.
ManU will also lose at home against Stoke.
Chelsea will lose to the minnow WBA.
Liverpool will lose to Bolton despite a 2-man advantage.
West Ham will lose to Portsmouth, blowing a 3-goal lead.

There will be a small clash between the Premiereship & the Twickenham game ... I will probably be tempted to watch what Martin Johnson's boys will do ???

Well it's Scotland, Ireland and then England on replay for me. Will any of the Tri-nations slip up?

Too bad for your boys against NZ in Brisbane. Almost pulled off a miracle comeback.

You can probably get some revenge against another Southern Hemisphere team later tonight. (I think most of us don't care much about that code anymore...)

So it's all right if we all beat the Wallabies then.:) My lot are entertaining them in a fortnight.

Before the showdown in Twickenham, tarek's Tigers is fighting back from a 3-20 halftime deficit against Bath. Let's see if they can do what England's rugby league team failed to do earlier.

ttt if it was so easy to predict football results from NBA results I would be so busy running my betting rounds instead of sitting here typing.

Amazing match for Bath-Tigers. Tigers came back from 3-20 to lead by 1 with a minute left and then Bath stole the victory with a try 11 minutes after the end of official time.:!:

Hope tarek is not too disappointed. Probably the national team will cheer him up later (they will have to overcome another early deficit against the Wallabies though, but judging from the recent form of Australia with an early lead I'll say England has the upper hand here).

IMO, today was a black day in sports ...

Arsenal .... Leicester .... England (Union & league) ...

Even Tennis didn't provide any comfort:(

And your cricket team was hammered by 158 runs against the mighty Indians (who just freshly gave our boys a sound beating). And perhaps not as relevant but in snooker Neil Robertson (an Aussie) also won against Matthew Stevens (a Brit, though closer to Glyn's roots) in the Bahrain Championship final.

I was secretly anticipating I'd go 0-5 on my predictions, but guess I'll have to settle for 1-4. But what an incredible finish to the Toons-Wigan match.
