Regular readers will have quickly realised that my football results predictions aren’t the best and I’ve proved myself once again with that last one on the FA Cup Final. At least I got one thing right – Chelsea won. No Torres goal though and no 3-1 battle. It was a bit of an average game but that’s fairly common for a Cup Final I think – there’s a nervousness in the teams and a bit of a fear of conceding the first goal that holds them back. Quarter or semi finals tend to be more exciting.
With FA Cup Final finished, I had no choice but to focus on the Premier League finale. Man United and Man City both had their penultimate games on Sunday and we both won, meaning we’re still level on points. With just one game left each, both taking place next Sunday, it really has gone down to the wire. We’re level on points but City have a much better goal difference than us so we really need them to lose or draw and for us to win to make certain of it. If we both win, we’d have to do it by at least a nine goal margin, depending on how many they won by, to take the title, so you have to say that Man City are the favourites. I’d rather take my chances going to play Mega Jackpots online than put any money on the Premier League title but I thought I’d have one last go at a prediction, to see if my lack of success might work the other way.
So I predict that Man City will win 2-1 at home to QPR and we will draw 1-1 away to Sunderland, meaning City take the title. And I’m really hoping that, like all my other predictions, this one won’t turn out to be correct.
