Seeing as I’ve had a busy day actually doing some productive revision for my exam this coming Friday, today I totally neglected to actually get a post written. However, to keep up appearances I did write a quick prediction for this week’s sole midweek Premier League fixture earlier at the behest of a commenter, so I figured I’d post it here for everyone’s perusal. So here we have it, today’s post; short and sweet. I will write something proper tomorrow, promise.
Wednesday Fixture, 7.45pm kick-off.
West Ham United vs. Aston Villa
Both these sides picked up hard-fought draws away from home over the weekend, and though West Ham still lie 19th in the table I sense they’re starting to turn the corner. Last week’s comeback from 2-0 down against Arsenal will have given them confidence and though they themselves surrendered a two goal lead to Sunderland last time out, it was more down to a terrific spirit from the Black Cats than inadequacies of West Ham. Villa settled for a draw against Everton over the weekend and never really got into the game, with the Toffees controlling the game for large periods. However, West Ham are still some way short of their best form and Martin O’Neill will see anything less than a win as a disappointment, and I think Villa’s pace on the counter could be the key in this encounter.
Check back tomorrow for a more fulfilling post!
