Mystic Jarv Weekend of 19 December

Posted by Jarv on December 19, 2009

Well it’s been a few weeks since I got around to doing this, Rest assured (if you really care) I have still been doing my predictions, I’ve been doing fairly well too, last weekend aside where everything seemed to go wrong, This midweek for example I got 7 of 8 Results right and 2 perfect scores, Only Arsenal let me down who I expected to beat Burnley.

Anyway onto this weekend:

Saturday

Portsmouth V Liverpool

A tough one this one Liverpool have been poor but then again Portsmouth are bottom of the table and seemingly have no money. Still Pompey have been playing better than results suggest and they might just sneak something out of this game. Mystic Jarv predicts a 1-1 Draw

Aston Villa V Stoke City

Villa Really are on a roll of late and have moved into 4th on the Same points as Arsenal in third all be it playing 1 game more. Stoke will be fairly happy with their lot so far this season 21 points from 16 games will be more than enough to keep them up if they can repeat that in the next 16 games. I really don’t think Stoke will get anything from this game though.

Mystic Jarv predicts 3-1 to Villa

Blackburn Rovers V Tottenham Hotspur

Blackburn have a great home record and have not been beaten there since the 15th of August. Spurs form on the other hand is all over the place, 2 wins, 3 draws and a loss from their last 6 & personally I think Blackburn will just shade this one.

Mystic Jarv predicts 2-1 to Blackburn

Fulham V Manchester United

What a fantastic achievement it is for Fulham to make the knockout stages of the Europa League, I hope the draw is kind to them. United have major injuries at the back but are scoring more goals this season than last. Fulham need to get at United early and try to nick a goal to put the pressure on. That being said i think United will edge this one.

Mystic Jarv predicts 1-2 to Manchester United

Manchester City V Sunderland

Sunderland started great but have struggled over the last few games and need a win to get the confidence back a little. City also need a win having not picked up 3 league points since September. Tottenham fans were chanting “you’re getting sacked in the morning” to Hughes on Wednesday night, well he hasn’t been but pressure is mounting and they are 8th having spent close to a quarter of a billion since Hughes took over. The pressure on Hughes i think will be lifted a bit with this game and all will be rosy again if they follow it up with Wins against Stoke and Wolves over Christmas. They also have a game in hand

Mystic Jarv predicts 2-1 to City

Arsenal V Hull City

Out of the Relegation zone Hull have done better of late but are once again without Jimmy Bullard who has yet another injury. Arsenal aren’t the first team to struggle at Burnley and they wont be the last but from winning at Anfield to losing at Burnley while both United and Chelsea won. This was a shock result last year with Hull picking up 3 points, Can’t see it this time though.

Mystic Jarv predicts 3-0 to Arsenal

Sunday

Wolverhampton Wanderers V Burnley

McCarthy has come under a lot of fire for his team selection at Old Trafford and i can understand why the Wolves fans who forked out 42 quid to effectively watch the reserves but like he says if he wins on saturday which helps keep them up then all will be forgiven. Burnley got a great result at home to Arsenal but are hopeless away from home and i reckon Wolves will pick up 3 points here.

Mystic Jarv predicts 1-0 to Wolves

Everton V Birmingham City

Birmingham have been playing great of late picking up lots of points and are currently lying 7th and only 5 points off 4th, I don’t think they will manage 4th but if Alex Mcleish is given a nice chunk of money in january to buy a few more quality players then its a possibility, especially as the other teams around keep dropping points at regular intervals. Who thought Everton would be 15th after 16 games? I certainly didn’t, They’ve had lots of injuries which has shown the thinness of their squad and will want to pick up points soon or risk being caught in a season long relegation battle.

Mystic Jarv predicts a 1-1 draw but wouldn’t be surprised if either team wins

West Ham United V Chelsea

Can anyone see anything other than a Chelsea win here? West ham have little in the way of striking options and i’m not exactly sure where the goals might come from. Chelsea had a little wobble but i expect them to comfotably be in the top 2 at the end of the season and should they not be crowned champions i think they will be close by.

Mystic Jarv predicts 1-3 to Chelsea

Monday

Wigan Athletic V Bolton Wanderers

A game both teams really need to win, especially as 2 wins in a row could jump either team into the top half if other results went their way, a tough encounter but Wigan to edge it in My Opinion.

Mystic Jarv predicts a 2-1 Win for Wigan

So there you go

Not sure if I will add anything else before hand so if not i wish you all a Merry Christmas.

Mystic Jarv Weekend of 7 November

Posted by Jarv on November 7, 2009

Another bad week for Mystic Jarv last weekend, here are this weekends predictions

Saturday

Aston Villa V Bolton Wanderers

Since beating Chelsea 3 weeks ago Villa haven’t won a game in the league and only won in the League cup on penalties, Their form is something Villa will want to rectify quickly if they serious want to challenge for Europe this season.

After 2 4-0 thumpings at the hand of Chelsea in their last 2 games Gary Megson will be glad to see the back of them for now at least however a trip to Villa park is not any easy away game either.

Mystic Jarv predicts a 1-0 to Villa
Aston Villa V Bolton Wanderers match discussion

Blackburn Rovers V Portsmouth

Pompey’s results have picked up a little to match their playing form and this is a massive game for them, both clubs find themselves in the bottom three and Blackburn are struggling more than i thought they would this season. They should now be over the Swine flu that hit the club and need to bounce back.

Mystic Jarv predicts a 1-0 to Blackburn …..just, however i could see it going the other way too
Blackburn Rovers V Portsmouth match discussion

Manchester City V Burnley

Burnley simply are not very good away from home and i can’t see them getting anything here. City are currently in the top 4 which is where they want to be and will really want to be there over the international break. There really should only be one winner in this game.

Mystic Jarv predicts a 2-0 to City
Manchester City V Burnley match discussion

Tottenham Hotspur V Sunderland

Like Villa, Sunderland have not won since their big victory on the 17th October and will want to get back on track as soon as possible, Lee Cattermole is injured and he ha been their driving force in the middle of the park and without him i believe they will struggle without him.

Spurs have had mixed fortunes from their recent matches and won’t be please by the 3-0 beating at the hands of their neighbours, if Spurs truly have designs on a Champions League place they have to win this game.

Mystic Jarv predicts a 2-1 to Spurs
Tottenham Hotspur V Sunderland match discussion

Wolverhampton Wanderers V Arsenal – 17:30

Wolves have picked up a point in each of their last 3 games, asll 3 of which i predicted them to lose, should they get something from this game they will really surprise me.

Arsenal will be pleased with the win last week against Spurs and Wenger must be delighted with their form, they’re scoring goals for fun. There is discussions about take overs going on at the moment but i don’t think it will put the team off their stride and i expect them to move into 2nd by Saturday night.

Mystic Jarv predicts a 1-3 to Arsenal
Wolverhampton Wanderers v Arsenal match discussion

Sunday

Hull City V Stoke City

Well phil brown is still in charge but you have to ask how much longer, the statement from the new chairman was hardly resounding and should 3 points not be forthcoming against Stoke i believe he will be gone by the time they play West Ham,  Should Brown be sacked it gives the club a couple of weeks while the internationals are on to find a New boss. The question is, is there anyone better out there that will want to goto Hull?

Stoke Captain Abdoulaye Faye says they can qualify for Europe this season, big brave words given the competition this season, if they are to then they have to win this game.

Mystic Jarv predicts a 0-1 to Stoke
Hull City V Stoke City match discussion

West Ham United v Everton

It was a bitter-sweet midweek for West ham, beating Villa was a top result but losing Carlton Cole was a blow to them, before that game they were struggling for form. Everton were struggling even more and are having a terrible season by their recent standards and failed to pick up a win in the whole of October.

Mystic Jarv predicts a 1-1 Draw
West Ham United V Everton match discussion

Wigan Athletic V Fulham

12th V 11th in the league, I didn’t see the game against Roma but i undertstand Fulham were unlucky to be down to 9 men. Still at the end of the day the Premier league is their bread and butter and this game is more important in the long term, beating Liverpool was a fantastic result for them and they will want to follow it up against Wigan.

Wigan got thumped at Portsmouth last week and have had a few mixed results since beating Chelsea, they have conceeded lots of goals too and will need to tighten up for this game.

Mystic Jarv predicts a 2-1 Win for Wigan

Chelsea V Manchester United

This game as a United fan worries me, United’s defence has been quite porous of late and Chelsea have been scoring lots of goals and playing great football but it’s never quite that simple is it. I believe United will be really up for this game and could just nick a win but to do that they need to cut out the defensive and keeping errors that plagued the game against CSKA on Tuesday. The normally steady Van der sar will definitely want the first and third goal back and a keeper of his stature shouldn’t have been beaten so easily.

United need to keep Drogba and Anelka quiet if they do that they have a chance, Chelsea have to nullify United’s Wingers which could be key to the game

Mystic Jarv predicts a 1-2 for United (might be being an optimistic United fan here)
Chelsea V Manchester United match discussion

Monday

Liverpool V Birmingham City

Under normal circumstances in other seasons this would be such an obvious prediction but Liverpool are struggling and with Gerrard and Torres both doubtful and both possibly needing surgery on injuries 2009/2010 could be shaping up to be Liverpool’s worst season for many a year.

A draw against City and a victory against Sunderland are 2 results that surprised me a little , I tink they will lose this game but if they can frustrate Liverpool ealry on they might, just might get something.

Mystic Jarv predicts a 2-0 win for Liverpool

Other Stuff

Although i Know nothing about boxing Mystic Jarv predicts a win for Haye against Valuev, like i said i know nothing so don’t put your house on it

Mystic Jarv Sunday 25 October

Posted by Jarv on October 25, 2009

Here Goes Sundays predictions

Bolton Wanderers V Everton

Everton were destroyed in Benfica on Thursday night, They have a lot of injuries, 9 players missing on Thursday through injury, i’m not sure if any of them are back but they should have Heitinga and Neill available after being cup tied.

Bolton have had 8 days to prepare for this game and haven’t had to travel to Portugal and back like Everton have. They did well and almost got a draw at Old Trafford and have 2 games against Chelsea in 2 competitions next up so will want to do well in this game.

Mystic Jarv predicts a 1-0 win for Bolton
Bolton Wanderers V Everton match discussion

Liverpool V Manchester United

I can’t wait for this game, As most of you know i’m a Manchester United fan and I am definitely a little biased, make of that what you will.  Liverpool have been struggling 4 games without a win in all competitions and have their biggest rivals up next. To make matters worse Liverpool have some injuries although despite what Rafa says it’s not as bad as he makes out, pretty much every other team have had and in fact 2 thirds of the premier league have more injuries right now. I fully expect Torres, Gerrard and Johnson to be playing on Sunday.

United are on a run of 11 games without a loss and have 10 wins out of those games, they have 7 more points than they did this time last year. United have injuries too, more than double that of liverpool in fact but again i expect the game to be contested by pretty much full strength teams, Even Owen Hargreaves is hopefully expected back in full training soon.

The game could go either way and will depend on how the 2 teams start, It’s easy to say Liverpool are missing Alonso but they are and i think (hope) United edge this one.

Mystic Jarv predicts a 2-1 win for Manchester United
Liverpool V Manchester United match discussion

Manchester City V Fulham

City have won every game so far at Eastlands this season and will be glad to be back there after 2 draws away from home, Unlike their opponents this weekend though they have had a week off so should be nicely refreshed although they are still missing Robinho but as they have another 80 million pounds of striking options that shouldn’t be a worry. When you have 3 strikers out and can still call on Santa Cruz (£18m) and Tevez (£25-47m) thats not a bad choice is it.

Fulham played Thursday evening and in Hodgson’s own words the Premier League is more important, They were unlucky against Roma, I’ve not seen the incident but i gather the sending off was harsh.

Mystic Jarv predicts a 3-1 win for Manchester City
Manchester City V Fulham match discussion

West Ham United V Arsenal

If the games go as i’ve predicted them West Ham will be bottom after the weekend, West ham have not won since the opening day in the league and desperately need some points.

Arsenal have a few injuries but are playing really well, Wenger plays great football and this season they are picking up results too. They have the best goal difference of any team in the league and if they win their game in hand are only a point off top of the table. Like Spurs they will want a win this weekend to be on a winning league run going into the Derby next weekend

Personally i can only see this game going 1 way

Mystic Jarv predicts a 2-0 win for Arsenal

Thats it, More predictions next week

Mystic Jarv 18 & 19 October

Posted by Jarv on October 18, 2009

Here are my predictions for Sunday and Monday

Blackburn Rovers V Burnley – Sunday

This game should have a great atmosphere and hopefully no trouble between the fans especially as all the trouble the security staff are going to including making one Burnley fan make a 50 mile round trip to a game thats 4 minutes walk from his house, thats madness to me. Burnley have struggled so far away from home this season and i have Blackburn to edge this.

Mystic Jarv predicts a 1-0 home win

Blackburn Rovers V Burnley match discussion

Wigan Athletic V Manchester City

If City fail to qualify for the champions league this season then they will only have themselves to blame, they have spent enough cash and should have a big enough squad and need to win games like this to give them the best possible shot at the top 4.

Wigan need a performance like that against Chelsea and Wigans squad will have done a bit less travelling over the last week and might benefit from slightly fresher legs.

Mystic Jarv predicts a 1-1 Draw

Wigan Athletic V Manchester City match discussion

Fulham V Hull City

Fulham are strong at home in recent times and perhaps should be higher up the table than they are on performance alone but its results which will determine their fate not performances. They need a good strong performance and 3 points in this game.

Like Fulham, Hull need 3 points  because despite winning last time out they are still in the bottom 3 and have a substantially worse goal difference.

Mystic Jarv predicts a 2-1 Home Win

Mystic Jarv Sunday 20 September

Posted by Jarv on September 19, 2009

So thats saturday done here are Sunday’s predictions

Manchester United V Manchester City

City got a great result last week against Arsenal at home but this stands to be a tougher test missing Robinho, Possibley Tevez and definately now Adebayor. Even without those 3 they have still spend big and have bought some good players so i don’t expect a rout but a more close game.

Mystic Jarv predicts 2-1 to United
Manchester United V Manchester City Match Discussion

Wolverhampton Wanderers V Fulham

WIll the UEFA cup damage Fulham’s season i guess time will tell and they’ve been away to Bulgaria this week and then travel to Wolves on Sunday. If Wolves want to survive this season these are game they need to win and i think they will edge this game.
Mystic Jarv predicts 1-0 to Wolves
Wolverhampton Wanderers V Fulham Match Discussion

Everton V Blackburn Rovers

Everton like Fulham have been in UEFA cup action on thursday, picking up a good 3 nil win against AEK Athensbut Everton need league points, Likewise Blackburn, Both teams will be hoping to pick up points from this fixture but i don’t see anything other than a home win.

Mystic Jarv predicts 2-1 to Everton
Everton V Blackburn Rovers Match Discussion

Chelsea V Tottenham Hotspur

Chelsea are flying so far this season picking up late wins and over turning defecits, the mark of champions or so the saying goes, Tottenham represent Chelsea’s toughest league game so far this season.

Spurs were unbeaten until being beaten by 10 man Man United last weekend after being a goal up, This game will be tougher still and they can’t afford to give Chelsea an inch

Mystic Jarv Saturday 12 September

Posted by Jarv on September 12, 2009

Its been a good week in the world of Mystic Jarv, 9 of 10 results right in the premier league last time out and 5 of 5 of Saturdays Internationals. Although i didn’t post on here I had England to beat Croatia, Russia to beat Wales, Holland to beat Scotland and Northern Ireland to draw with Slovakia so 3 of 4.

Anyway onto this Week

Blackburn Rovers V Wolverhampton Wanderers

Blackburn have struggled so far this season and find themselves in the bottom 3 after 3 games, Wolves on the other hand have had mixed fortunes  so far this season. Blackburn i think will be too strong for Wolves especially so as Wolves have a few injuries and by the end of Saturday will draw level on points with Wolves

Mystic Jarv predicts 1-0 to Blackburn

Blackburn Rovers V Wolverhampton Match Discussion

Liverpool V Burnley

Two wins from 4 games is not the start Rafa, Liverpool or their fans wanted or expected but talk of their premier league challenge being over is premature to say the least. Rafa’s men have been far from convincing this season but championships are not won in September, they can be lost however and Liverpool will want to improve quickly.

Burnley have had a good start to the season which finds them on the same points as Liverpool having already played Manchester United and Chelsea, those 2 games and this one wont decide which division they play their football in next season and any points are a bonus. Owen Coyle i’m sure will be ticking off the points to the Magic 40 point mark, 6 down 34 to go, In my opinion he will be in the same position at 5pm on saturday.

Mystic Jarv predicts 2-0 to Liverpool

Liverpool V Burnley Match Discussion

Manchester City V Arsenal

One of the big four verses one of the teams hoping to replace them this season, City have spent big including 40 Million on 2 players from Arsenal. City have a few injury problems from the Internationals including Robinho and Tevez who are both doubts but that shouldn’t be an excuse when you have spent over 100 million pounds recently and a truck load before hand.

Wenger was annoyed this week that Arshavin has picked up an injury or rather made the one he had before the internationals worse by playing 90 Minutes. on the plus side though Rosicky is fit again and played 56 minutes for the Czech republic in the week. Not sure if i’m the only one who finds it a little odd a long term injured player like Rosicky played for his national team before his club side.

This will be an open game but will end in a draw

Mystic Jarv predicts a 1-1 Draw

Manchester City v Arsenal Match Discussion

Portsmouth V Bolton Wanderers

Pompey are in trouble, Most of their better players have been sold off to be replaced with, in my opinion, downgrades. Paul Hart will need serious backing in January to avoid having to travel to Doncaster, Barnsley and other stereo typical places relegated premier league teams don’t want to goto, That is of course if he still has a job in January.

Bolton are second bottom only above Pompey and neither team will want to lose this game, its a typical “Relgation 6 pointer” but i reckon it’ll be one point apiece and a mind numbingly dull game to watch.

Mystic Jarv predicts a 0-0 draw

Portsmouth V Bolton Wanderers Match Discussion

Stoke City V Chelsea

Stoke have started great 7 points from 4 games and are really tough to beat at home. I can see them giving it a really good go but Chelsea are flying this season, the remainder of the season may depend on whether the transfer ban affects them, will they put it out of their minds, will it bring them together in a kind of siege mentality or will the distraction put them off their stride?

I’ve been wrong once already this season backing against Stoke at home but Chelsea are one of, if not the team to beat this season.

Mystic Jarv predicts a 2-1 win for Chelsea

Stoke City V Chelsea Match Discussion

Sunderland V Hull City

Sunderland sit mid table with the same points as Villa, Liverpool and Arsenal and Darren Bent has started the season well. Bruce’s teams are usually well organised and Sunderland are no different.

Hull are well erm poor they have struggled to bring in players in the summer and Phil Brown has a long old season ahead attempting to keep them up

I think i’ve predicted Hull to lose every game so far  and this game is no different

Mystic Jarv predicts a 2-0 win for Sunderland

Sunderland V Hull City Match Discussion

Wigan Athletic V West Ham United

I keep predicting Wigan will be ok this season but sit 4th Bottom with 3 points from a possible 12, west ham have played a game less and have 4 points. This is an important game for both teams.

It should be an open passing game but neither have won since the opening day,

Mystic Jarv predicts an entertaining 1-1 Draw

Wigan Athletic V West Ham United Match Discussion

Tottenham Hotspur V Manchester United

Second V Third, Spurs are missing one of their key men from the early few weeks in Luka Modric and another,  Palacios will only have got home friday morning. these 2 are key for Spurs. Spurs may have some defenders back fit for this game and Defoe is on fire. Krankjar will probrably make his Debut, it will be interesting to see how he gets on.

United have Valencia like Palacios only back in Friday morning and may have Ferdinand back in the starting line up. United despite hammering wigan 5-0 havn’t looked overly impressive and toiled even in the first half at the DW stadium. Rooney like Defoe is on form this season so far and he seems to be enjoying hsi central role.  I believe United will have just a little too much for Spurs on this occasion, but i wouldn’t be surprised by a draw or a close win either way.

Sunday 29/08 Premier league Predictions from Mystic Jarv

Posted by Jarv on August 29, 2009

Well Saturday’s games have finished, or will have by the time this publishes, hopefully i was right with all my predictions, onto Sundays games:

Portsmouth Vs Manchester City 13:30

Well Portsmouth have new owners and its not a day too soon for thyem, they need players in fast.  Speaking of new players Man City have a bundle of them, they have a 100% record too. If Hughes can get the team to gel they could be a force to be reckoned with this season. Its too late for Pompey to bring in enough players to make a big enough difference for this gameand City i believe will have too much

Mystic Jarv predicts a 0-2 win for Manchester City

Portsmouth Vs Manchester City Match Discussion

Everton Vs Wigan Athletic 15:00

Everton have started badly, very badly but its a little early to be marking them for relegation as some Tabaloids have done, the distraction of Lescott has gone now so they can focus on obtaining some Premier League form.
Wigan got a mullering last weekend and in the week against Blackpool, Confidence must be quite low

Mystic Jarv predicts a 1-0 for Everton

Everton Vs Wigan Athletic Match Discussion

Aston Villa Vs Fulham 16:00

Villa got a great result at Anfield and will be buoyed by this and were at home in the Europa league where Fulham had a long journey, Both teams have 1 win from 2 Premier league games, i expect it to be a tight game and Villa to Edge it

Mystic Jarv predicts a 1-0 for Aston Villa

Mystic Jarv – Saturday Premier League Predictions 22/08

Posted by Jarv on August 21, 2009

Like a duracell bunny I wont give up no matter how wrong i am. First up Lets see how i did in midweek

Sunderland Vs Chelsea predicted 1-1 actual Result 1-3 – Nothing There
Wigan Athletic Vs Wolves predicted 2-0 actual result 0-1 – Nothing there
Birmingham Vs portsmouth predicted 1-0 actual result 1-0 – Spot on Yay
Burnley Vs Manchester United predicted result 1-2 actual result 1-0 – I dont want to talk about it
Hull City Vs Tottenham Hotspurs predicted 1-2 actual result 1-5 – Right result, wrong score
Liverpool Vs Stoke City predicted 1-0 actual result 4-0 – Right result, wrong score

So a mixed Bag midweek much like last weekend. So onto Saturday

Arsenal Vs Portsmouth
After destroying Everton on the first weekend and beating Celtic in midweek it is  a great time to be an Arsenal fan, i stand by my statement i don’t think they will challenge this season as soon as they get a few injuries. Wenger has Arsenal playing great football as usual and it must be a joy to be a season ticket holder at the Emirates, not only do you get to watch great football every week but you have some decent amount of cash to afford one 🙂

I’m going to start sounding like a stuck record regarding Paul Hart’s Portsmouth, What is going on down there on the south coast, David James is now rumoured to be on his Way to spurs to link up once again with Harry Redknapp, Will there be anyone left by the time the take over happens….if it happens

Mystic Jarv Predicts 2-1 to Arsenal

Arsenal Vs Portsmouth Match Discussion

Birmingham City Vs Stoke City
First win of the season for Birmingham midweek against Portsmouth, for what its worth I think it was a penalty, eyes on the ball or not David James took the player out who may have got to the ball before him.

Regardless of last seasons results against Liverpool I’m sure Tony Pulis wouldn’t have been expecting anything from Anfield. Its sure to be a tough season for both of these teams and its games like this that both teams really need to win, if it were 3 games from the end of the season instead of 3 games in pundits up and down the country would be calling this a Relegation 6 pointer and to be honest the game has no less significance to both clubs. Their main aim this season will definitely be survival first then see where they can get to.

Mystic Jarv predicts Birmingham to edge it 1-0 but it could go either way.

Birmingham City Vs Stoke City Match Discussion

Hull City Vs Bolton Wanderers
Hull will be smarting from the 5-1 demolition at the hands of Spurs and they seem to be really struggling to bring in a striker, latest to be linked is David Nugent who hasn’t been able to get a game on a regular basis at Portsmouth, No wins since december at home for Hull.

Bolton have no points either and just like Birmingham Vs Stoke this game is a must win for both teams and Bolton were certainly the 2nd best team in the game versus Sunderland. I do expect them to have a bit more than Hull though

Mystic Jarv predicts a 1-0 win for Bolton

Hull City Vs Bolton Wanderers Match Discussion

Manchester City vs Wolverhampton Wanderers
What a time to be a Man City fan, loads of money to spend, lots of new players and a sense of real expectation. City really have to win games like this and should be expected to comfortably, Hughes has spent a quarter of a billion pounds since he took over and knows his job must be on the line unless they seriously challenge for the title.

Wolves got a good win against Wigan bit i still think they will struggle this season

Mystic Jarv predicts a comfortable 2-0 home win

Manchester City vs Wolverhampton Wanderers Match Discussion

Sunderland Vs Blackburn Rovers
Darren bent has got off to a flyer so far this season and at this rate won’t be far away from a chance at the golden boot, Steve Bruce wouldn’t have expected to get much out of a game against Chelsea and Sunderland should have a great shot at a top half finish under Bruce, especially if Bent keeps firing.

Sam Allerdyce has a team of battlers and will no doubt work hard against Sunderland, Blackburn have signed Salgado on a free transfer and time will tell if Big Sam can get much out of him.

Mystic Jarv predicts 2-0 to Sunderland

Sunderland Vs Blackburn Rovers Match Discussion

Wigan Athletic Vs Manchester United
There will be some damaged ego’s in the Manchester united camp after losing against Burnley, most United fans i know can’t seem to understand why Carrick took that penalty, it must have been decided before hand however i would have expected Rooney on 99 United goals to want to have made it 100 Will Wigan be on the End of a United backlash?

Wigan lost against Wolves in midweek and I think they will lose this one too but i do expect them to survive this season

Mystic Jarv predicts 0-1 to Manchester United

Blackburn Rovers Vs Manchester City 15 August

Posted by Jarv on August 15, 2009

Blackburn will kick lumps out of Man City or so says David Dunn, well it adds a bit of spice to the game.

This game is the one time Big spenders of Blackburn Rovers, you all remember when they got promoted spent loads won the league then promptly got relegated soon after versus the New Money, and boy have they spent it Manchester City.

Big Sam’s teams are always well organised and it will take Mark Hughes team time to Gel

Mystic Jarv predicts 1-1.

O’neill thinks City can win the title

Posted by Jarv on July 29, 2009

Really? yes they have spent a lot of money but it takes more than money to win the league, Mark Hughes has to keep a lot of players happy and get them to gel. I expect them to do well and Arsenal fans must be bricking themselves at the prospect of heading for the Europa League next time around but Champions…Really?

Don’t get me wrong next season if they continue to strengthen they wont be far away but as it currently stands i will be very surprised if they finish any higher than 4th.

Martin O’Neill should be spending time worrying about his own fortunes as they badly fell away last season and as i see it are a weaker side this season without Garth Barry and no Martin Laursen, add to that Everton who will be up there again and (can’t believe i’m going to say this but) Spurs who have strengthened and will be much better organised at the beginning of this year than the beginning of last year, well they can hardly be worse
