Predictor time has begun!

Got West Brom, Brighton and Southampton going down, but I think my feelings on Southampton would change if they got a new manager.

I've got Brighton (32pts) S'oton (31) and West Brom (28)

Top 4 are Man City (99pts) Man Utd (84) Spurs (80) and Chelsea (80pts)

If you'd have asked me 10 minutes ago I'd have had Liverpool to make the top 4 Laugh I'd have also backed City to break a 100 points although I have them to bag 109 goals.

Basically, bet against all the above and you're laughing OK Great fun doing that, though!

I had Chelsea 5th and Arsenal convincingly behind in 6th.

Think I had City on 103 and smashing 100+ goals easily

Yeah I got Arsenal on 70 points, six behind Liverpool and 16 ahead of Leicester in 7th.

Looking back at the predictions I've hardly given anyone a clean sheet!

Daniel Sturridge on loan at WBA, the potential saviour for WBA, is injured 3 mins into the Chelsea v WBA match.  Apparently he was running for the ball and that was enough for something to pop in his body.

WBA look doomed. 3 wins in 27. Pardew wasn’t the answer, and neither was gambling on Sturridge.

This season WBA Premiership Performance
Tony Pulis: ...... Played 12: Points 10: Points/game = 0.83:  Goals scored/game = 0.75: Goals conceded/game = 1.5
Gary Megson: .. Played 02: Points 02: Points/game = 1.00:  Goals scored/game = 1.50: Goals conceded/game = 1.5
Alan Pardew: ... Played 13: Points 08: Points/game = 0.69:  Goals scored/game = 0.69: Goals conceded/game = 1.5

So there has been no new manager bounce at all in the appointment of Alan Pardew.

WBA's problem was that Pulis purchased horrifically in the summer - that squad has been aging for a while, and needed a lot of fresh blood. Instead he just brought a few more in his mould, and they've paid the price

Wary of writing anyone off, someone usually goes on a run towards seasons end. But if Sturridge is hurt, hard to see where the goals are coming from.

Probably would've been smarter just to let Pulis grind out survival then give a new manager the summer to put his own imprint on the squad

Even David Haye thinks he should call it a day now

This is for Fernando - proof positive that Lamela dived:

And now another penalty / diving controversy involving spurs - Dele Alli winning a penalty against the mighty Rochdale - Alli runs into the outstretched leg of a Rochdale player - as the Rochdale player is retracting his leg, Alli executes a forward dive with tuck and roll.
