I’m hoping that there is no such thing as momentum in Premier League predictions, as last time out I scored 9 points (the joint second highest of the season) to beat Steve Curtis who got just three points, but the international break stopped any chance of my luck holding out until this weekend. My tally of three correct results and three correct scores bettered Steve’s one correct result and one correct score, and leaves the leaderboard looking like this…

  1. Sports Analytics Machine – 8
  2. Mitch Clarke, Paul Merson, Jonny Williams – 7
  3. Tom Malley, Kieran Rawnsley, Dan Moran, Josh Pound, Kallum Mehta, Phil Beresford, Seb Schille* – 6
  4. Olly (average) – 5.29
  5. Felipe Alviar-Baquero, Laith Amiry, Harry Blacknell, Oscar Hayes, Jack Beresford, Jake Moore, William Troost-Ekong, Simeon Pickup, Marc Mayo – 5
  6. My Dad, Josh Nicholson, Mark Lawrenson, FIFA 16 – 4
  7. Benjamin Wills, Jason Roberts, Dan Wimbush, Steve Curtis – 3
  8. Kyle Goldsmith, Thomas Fletcher, Will Jones** – 2
  • Olly’s Total = 155
  • Guests’ Total = 147

*Still two games to be played

**Still five games to be played

This week, I am taking on Jacob South Klein, the man who I succeeded on The Tilehurst End as writer of Ref-Watch. Jacob is now a member on the board of STAR, the Reading FC Supporters Trust, whilst every transfer deadline day he conducts ‘Bush Watch’ at the Madjeski Stadium, looking for potential Royals signings. Before Reading’s FA Cup clash with Derby County in February last year, he made this promise:

Needless to say, the Yak did indeed score at the iPro Stadium, netting the winner. Jacob will be hoping, his luck is much better in this week’s Premier League predictions. Here is how we thought the 10 fixtures would pan out…
