Score predictions come out of the freezer

January 15, 2010

BRITAIN/Last week’s snow-show in all but three of the games means there’s been very little movement on the scores front, at least here at Reuters Soccer Blog Towers.

Premier League grounds may be as sludgy as Dutch pea soup  but at least they’re fit for purpose once more and as long as the thaw continues we should get a full programme again this weekend. About time too. Here are the weekend’s games:

 Stoke City v Liverpool
 Chelsea v Sunderland
 Manchester United v Burnley
 Portsmouth v Birmingham City
 Tottenham Hotspur v Hull City
 Wolverhampton Wanderers v Wigan Athletic
 Everton v Manchester City
    Playing on Sunday
 Aston Villa v West Ham United
 Blackburn Rovers v Fulham
 Bolton Wanderers v Arsenal

Remember, it’s five points for getting the score spot on; or one point if you get the right result but the wrong scoreline. The beauty is that with bonus points available for style, plus double points for new starters for the first month, you can catch us up very quickly. Honestly, turns out we’re rubbish at this…

Anyway, give us your attempts in the comments section and see if you can beat the panel. Here are the current RSB scores:

Reuters Soccer blog panel: Patrick Johnston 194, Mitch Phillips 182, Paul Radford 181, Neil Maidment 166, Kevin Fylan 148, Mark Meadows 142, Simon Evans 142, Julien Pretot 137, Mike Collett 132, Asia Sports Desk 115, Martyn Herman 109, Miles Evans 107, Sonia Oxley 71, Justin Palmer 41

I have read that in the Premier league only 1 out of 40 corners create a goal. Amazing, isnt it?
