Mark Lawrenson’s Comedy Column
Guess who’s back
Stating the bleeding obvious“The Latics’ biggest problem is that they are far too sloppy at the back without being clinical enough at the other end.”
So they defend badly and attack badly? Insightful
“Out of the two clubs, you worry a lot more about West Ham’s survival prospects than you do about Villa’s.”
Yes you do. As they have five less points with six games to go.
Easy does it
Blackburn’s recent away record is terrible. Everyone else has turned them over, and done so quite easily too.
Blackburn’s away record has indeed been faeces, but easily? Two of their last three defeats away from home have been 3-2 to Fulham (where they conceded a last minute penalty) and 4-3 to Wigan.
Not only has Lawro started predicting Liverpool to lose games (which coincides with them starting to win), but he is also showering rivals Everton with inaccurate compliments:
“Everton are one of the form teams in the country at the moment.”
Ten teams in England’s top four leagues have gained more points from their last eight games.
Don’t cry for me Argentina
“With Tevez out, I don’t see any matchwinners left for City”
So not Adam Johnson (matchwinner this season against Newcastle and Blackpool (h), or David Silva (matchwinner this season against Blackpool (a) and Wigan, or Mario Balotelli (matchwinner against West Brom)?
“I think Bolton are the better team, by virtue of where they are in the Premier League, but I am not sure that will have much bearing on the outcome at Wembley.” Prediction: Bolton to win 2-1.
So you think that Bolton are better, purely because they have five more points over 32 games? But this doesn’t mean they will win? But they’ll win?
