I ended 2015 with a defeat in Premier League Predictions, as Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson defeated me 7-4, putting him joint top of the leaderboard with Mitch Clarke. His three correct results and two correct scores were much better than my two correct results and one correct score, and if in the unlikely circumstance that he is reading this, the former Arsenal winger should be very pleased with how the new league table now looks…

  1. Mitch Clarke, Paul Merson – 7
  2. Tom Malley, Kieran Rawnsley, Dan Moran, Josh Pound, Kallum Mehta – 6
  3. Olly (average) – 5.8
  4. Felipe Alviar-Baquero, Laith Amiry, Harry Blacknell, Oscar Hayes – 5
  5. My Dad, Josh Nicholson, Mark Lawrenson, FIFA 16 – 4
  6. Benjamin Wills, Jason Roberts – 3
  7. Kyle Goldsmith, Thomas Fletcher – 2
  • Olly’s Total = 111
  • Guests’ Total = 90

For the first round of predictions of 2016, I am taking on Phil Beresford – my mum’s cousin’s son. A quick google search will tell you that in simpler terms he’s my second cousin. Phil is a Reading FC fan like myself, so let’s see how we thought this weekend’s Premier League fixtures would turn out…
