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 Saturday 24 October

Posted by Jarv on October 24, 2009

A good week last week 8 out of 10 correct results and 1 fully correct score. I  Play Supoer 6 on sky too and got the time for the first goal right 5 out of 6 correct results which was the same as the guy who won, looks like i was just unlucky at being drawn out of a hat, however if Everton had won the game at the death i’d have been a few grand richer.

Anyway onto this week:

Wolverhampton Wanderers V Aston Villa

Things are going well for Villa, beating Chelsea last weekend was a good achievement and leaves them only 6 points off the top and 3 points off third with a game in hand.

Wolves picked up a good point away at Everton last weekend and for their sake its a good thing they did as they have visits from Villa and Arsenal and a tough trip to Stoke in their next 3, all of which they will do well to get anything out. I can’t see them getting anything personally and i reckon they will be in the bottom 3 by the time of the International break, it doesnt get any easier after that though as they have to goto Stamford bridge.

Mystic Jarv predicts a 2-1 win for Villa
Wolverhampton Wanderers v Aston Villa Match Discussion

Birmingham City V Sunderland

With a little help from a Beach ball Sunderland got a great result against Liverpool, regardless of whether it should have been a drop ball, Sunderland were by far the better team and deserved the 3 points and currently lie 7th only 6 points off the top, this is the same club that marginally stayed up last year and has had a remarkable turnaround under Bruce’s leadership.

Birmingham have a new owner and will have 80 million to spend on players over the next 2 windows,  For their sake they need some points on the board before the end of December to make sure the £40 million will be enough to help them stay up.

Sunderland have the better team and squad and i think will have too much for Brum

Mystic Jarv predicts a 2-0 win for Sunderland
Birmingham City V Sunderland match discussion

Burnley V Wigan Athletic

Burnley have a great record at home, 100% in fact and they will need to continue that to survive this season or start picking up a few away from home. The question is if they do lose at home will it destroy their form and confidence but i’m betting 12 points from their first 9 games, they’d have taken that at the start of the season. Were a quarter of the way into the season more or less so they need to continue that points to games ratio and they’ll be easily safe.

Wigan are a bit of an enigma beating Chelsea and then losing to Hull and will need to find some form and pick up some points. I believe they will stay up as there are at least 3 worse teams than them but they will do well to win this weekend.

Mystic Jarv predicts 1-0 to Burnley
Burnley V Wigan Athletic match discussion

Hull City V Portsmouth

Two of the bottom 3 meet in Hull and neither will want to lose, Portsmouth have been playing better than their results show but you don’t win anything by playing nice football, just ask Arsenal fans, Portsmouth really have to win this game .

Hull also really need to win this game, I personally will be astounded if Hull are a premier league club next season, i could and have said the same for Portsmouth but they apparently have cash to spend in January to strengthen the squad, whether it’s too late or not will depend whether they can get anything from this and other games.

Mystic Jarv predicts Portsmouth to win 1-0
Hull City V Portsmouth match discussion

Tottenham Hotspur V  Stoke City

Jermain Defoe is quite rightly missing this game for a stupid and dangerous stamp so it looks like Crouch and Keane will start up front, if they win this one they will go into the Derby against Arsenal above them in the table which after the last few seasons will be a bit of a relief.

Stoke are doing great this season, in the top half of the table with 12 points having already played Liverpool, Chelsea and Man United, Like Burnley i’m betting they would have taken that before the season started. I don’t think they will have enough to beat Spurs at White hart lane though.

Mystic Jarv predicts 2-1 to Spurs
Tottenham Hotspur V Stoke City match discussion

Chelsea V Blackburn Rovers

Chelsea got a great result against Athletico destroying them 4-0, it certainly looks like the transfer ban hasn’t affected them much if at all, they lost last time out in the Premier League against Villa and lost top spot for the second time this season. This is a good opportunity to regain it before their main rival has a tough game at Liverpool on Sunday.

Blackburn are about where i expect them to finish this season middle of the bottom half, This is a very tough game for them after narrowly beating Burnley at home last week they have both Chelsea and Manchester United away in their next 2 league games

Mystic Jarv predicts 2-0 to Chelsea

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 Saturday 3rd October

Posted by Jarv on October 2, 2009

here is this Saturdays premier league predictions, Last week i got 7 results right and 1 perfect score, the ones i got wrong were I had Villa to win at Blackburn, Chelsea to win at Wigan and Birmingham to beat Bolton, so lets see how i get on this week:

Bolton Wanderers V Tottenham Hotspur

Spurs wont find Bolton away an easy prospect, certainly tougher than Burnley at home and its looking likely they will be without Jermain Defoe, all that means is they bring in Peter Crouch who got a Hat Trick on his last start to partner Robbie Keane who got 4 goals last weekend. Modric is still missing and whether he would have made the difference against Manchester United and Chelsea we will never know. Spurs lie 4th on the same points as Liverpool above them and Man City below them and i think had someone asked Harry before the season, he’d have taken that at this stage. Bolton picked up a good 3 points away at Birmingham and its a good thing they did because after this game, they goto Old Trafford, host Everton and then Chelsea and then goto Villa, thats 5 games in a row i can’t see them getting anything out of, Bolton will have to battle for any points out of these games and they might be able to frustrate one or maybe 2 of the teams to get a draw or 2

Mystic Jarv predicts Bolton Wanderers 0 – 2 Tottenham Hotspur
Bolton Wanderers v Tottenham Hotspur match discussion

Burnley V Birmingham City

Burnley are strong at home with a 100% record and have lost every game away conceding 14 goals in the 4 away losses without troubling the scorers, the worry for Burnley is if they suffer a loss of form at home they will be doomed, still 9 points from their first 7 games is about as good as they could have hoped for , especially when the games include Man United, Chelsea, Everton, Spurs and a trip to the notoriously tricky Britannia Stadium to play Stoke City. Birmingham are exactly where they need to be at the end of the season, with at least 3 teams below them, i’m sure Alex Mcleish will be very happy should they finish 3 points above the bottom 3 at the end of the season. I had Birmingham to win last week at home against Bolton, not so this week.

Mystic Jarv predicts Burnley 1 – 0 Birmingham City
Burnley V Birmingham City match discussion

Hull City V Wigan Athletic

Hull are in trouble this season, only kept off the bottom by the pointless Portsmouth and Phil Brown must be feeling the pressure. They have 6 games now against teams that are currently near the bottom or expected to be there by the end of the season and its Vital to their season they get something out of these games or risk being too far adrift, This time last season everyone was amazed how well they ere doing at the top end of the table, this season its more like what was expected. Wigan will be massively buoyed by beating Chelsea, their first win against a “Big 4” club in 35 attempts and find themselves in the top half of the table and will want to capitalise on that by taking 3 more points against Hull before entertaining Man City after the International break

Mystic Jarv predicts Hull City 0 – 1 Wigan Athletic
Hull City V Wigan Athletic match discussion

Wolverhampton Wanderers V Portsmouth

I really think Wolves will be back in the Championship next season however their saviour might be that Hull and Portsmouth are really poor and they will likely only need to be better than 1 more club, they got a beating last time out 5-2 at Sunderland, a result that flattered Sunderland but never the less Wolves defending was shocking. Portsmouth are in big trouble, 7 games, no points, players unpaid and the Premier league threatening to step in to take over the club to save them from administration, I feel sorry for the Pompey fans but i can’t see things getting any better anytime soon, whether their new owner has any actual cash i don’t know but it will become evident very quickly if he hasn’t.

Mystic Jarv predicts Wolverhampton Wanderers 1 – 0 Portsmouth
Wolverhampton Wanderers V Portsmouth match discussion

Manchester United V Sunderland

With Owen missing though injury this is an opportunity for Macheda or Welbeck to be on the bench and possibly get some game time, United went top for the first time this season last week on goal difference and despite not looking their best at time have kept picking up wins, Lots of people said United would struggle without Ronaldo and they have taken a while to learn the system they are playing this season. It can also be said they are less predictable without Ronaldo and goals have come from a number of players, 8 in total i believe. Sunderland got a good win against Wolves, a score line that flattered them a little, one thing is for certain if they get a penalty Darren Bent wont be giving it up after the ear bashing he got from his manager Bruce this week. Sunderland are doing well but i don’t think they aren’t strong enough to goto Old Trafford and win.

Mystic Jarv predicts Manchester United 3 – 0 Sunderland

Mystic Jarv Saturday 19 September

Posted by Jarv on September 18, 2009

Here we go again 6 right results last weekend 2 of them correct scores, Not a great weekend for Mystic Jarv, Lets see how i get on this week.

Burnley V Sunderland

Burnley have started well, although they only have 6 points from a possible 15,  Burnley have got trips to Liverpool and Chelsea out of the way and beaten Manchester united at home. Their home form is going to be crucial to them this season and need to make it a fortress as much as they can.

Sunderland lie 7th which i’m sure is higher than they would have expected, on the same points as Villa and liverpool, I’m sure their first job is to ensure survival but a few more wins and they can start to look how high up the table they can finish.

Mystic Jarv predicts a 1-1 Draw
Burnley V Sunderland Match Discussion

Arsenal V Wigan Athletic

Arsene Wenger will be glad he doesn’t have to goto Manchester again this season, 0 points from both games where they likely deserved more.

Roberto Martinez was quoted this week he wants European football in  3 years at Wigan, Lofty goals given the competition for the top 6 places, Sadly for Roberto i can’t see them getting anything from this game. 

Mystic Jarv predicts a 2-0 Home win
Arsenal V Wigan Athletic Match Discussion

Aston Villa v Portsmouth

After a bad first week Villa have gotten themselves back on track with 3 straight wins, they are only 3 points behind 2nd with a game in hand.

Portsmouth must only be a matter of games away from sacking Paul Hart, not that i agree with it,  as he’s had most of his best players sold off from under him, he needs to start attacking though as the 4-5-1  just isn’t working and the longer it goes on the further they maybe adrift at the foot of the table

Mystic Jarv predicts a 2-0 Win for Villa and lots more rumours about Paul Hart’s job.
Aston Villa V Portsmouth Match Discussion

Bolton Wanderers V Stoke City

3 points last time out for Bolton in a 3-2 win (a game i predicted 0-0) it doesn’t change the fact Bolton are in for a tough season.

Stoke lie 8th in the table and don’t appear to be set for a 2nd season slump which affects quite a few newly promoted teams and In my opinion will be safe in plenty of time this season.

Mystic Jarv predicts a 2-1 win for Stoke
Bolton Wanderers V Stoke City Match Discussion

Hull City V Birmingham City

15th V 17th, Two teams who could really do with 3 points  but equally wont want to lose, I expect a tight game  but the Home team to edge it.

Mystic Jarv Predicts a 1-0 Win for Hull
Hull City V Birmingham City Match Discussion

West Ham United V Liverpool

So the season isn’t over just yet for Liverpool, after a shaky start they appear to be back on track, this is a tricky away trip this season, if West ham can sort out some strikers.

I Expected West Ham to have more than 4 points form 4 games and i still think they will finish mid table but could very well be in the bottom 3 by the end of the weekend.

Mystic Jarv predicts a 2-1 Win for Liverpool

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

Wigan Athletic vs Wolverhampton Wanderers 18 August

Posted by Jarv on August 17, 2009

How did i do on the 1st matchday weekend predicting these 2 clubs, well i had Wigan to lose 3-1 away and they won 2-0 so nothing there and i Had Wolves to lose 2-1 and they lost 2-0 so right result wrong score.

I really think Wolves will struggle this season and wouldn’t be surprised to see Mick Mccarthy out of a job before the season is out.

Rodallega looks decent from what i saw of thim at the back end of last season and the stunner he scored against Villa, Will he be a Zaki where he starts very well then disappears, maybe not quite so litterally as Zaki’s case

Mystic Jarv predicts 2-0 Wigan

Aston Villa Vs Wigan Athletic 15 August

Posted by Jarv on August 15, 2009

Two Big Losses in Barry and the now retired Laursen for Villa  and the big signing of Downing wont be fit until December.

Whether Delph will play this weekend i’m not sure but its got to be worth sticking him on the bench and giving him half an hour, He has a lot to proveand will be raring to go.

Wigan have a new manager in Roberto Martinez and have lost quite a few players including key players like Valencia, Zaki, Mido and Cattermole. I think Wigan will be ok this season and survive comfortably but Villa will win this one

Mystic Jarv predicts a 3-1 Home Win
