*NEW LEADER KLAXON* Since Mitch Clarke topped the Premier League Predictions in week five with 7 points, no one has been able to knock him off his perch (Paul Merson equalled him in week 19). Until now – sorry Mitch! It seems that a computer really can predict football results as the Sports Analytics Machine beat me 8-5 last week. Incredibly, that tally was made up for correct correct scores, the most achieved in one game week this season by a challenger to see SAM become our new leader. I meanwhile, got one correct result and two correct scores. Here’s the league table…

  1. Sports Analytics Machine – 8
  2. Mitch Clarke, Paul Merson – 7
  3. Tom Malley, Kieran Rawnsley, Dan Moran, Josh Pound, Kallum Mehta, Phil Beresford – 6
  4. Olly (average) – 5.32
  5. Felipe Alviar-Baquero, Laith Amiry, Harry Blacknell, Oscar Hayes, Jack Beresford, Jake Moore, William Troost-Ekong, Simeon Pickup – 5
  6. My Dad, Josh Nicholson, Mark Lawrenson, FIFA 16 – 4
  7. Benjamin Wills, Jason Roberts – 3
  8. Kyle Goldsmith, Thomas Fletcher – 2
  • Olly’s Total = 133
  • Guests’ Total = 124

Can anyone beat the machine before the end of the season? First up to try his luck is Daniel Wimbush, the editor (or ‘Big Bossman’) of The Tilehurst End. After my fellow assistant editor Sim scored five points a few weeks ago, Dan will be aiming to at least equal that and prove his knowledge is worthy of a Sky Sports employee!
