Cymru Premier Festive Fixtures

Time got away from me over Christmas and, while I did type my vague predictions ahead of time, I didn’t get the chance to write up the post before the Boxing Day legs were played.

So, those new to the Cymru Premier League might not know that Boxing Day and New Year sees home and away games against your closest rivals.

Rather than go for predicting the exact scores for these games, I merely wrote what I thought would happen across the two games.

Cefn Druids vs The New Saints

Now, if any of you were worried that I’d amend my predictions with retrospect to make myself look good, this should calm your minds.

I predicted that sixth placed Druids would win one of the two games, with TNS taking the other.

That MIGHT well happen yet, but as TNS were victorious 5-0 away from home, I’m not confident.

I crumb of comfort though. The Saints’ big wins in the league (12-0 over Airbus and 10-1 over Aber) have come away from home. Although they were victorious in the home legs of those games, just not by much. I mean, they ONLY scored six against Airbus.

I wouldn’t put money on TNS doing the double over Druids now.

Connah’s Quay Nomads vs Airbus UK

I called this as four points across the two games for Nomads and with them winning 2-1 at Deeside, I might well not be far wrong.

I’ll be at the Airfield on Monday night to watch the game so will have everything crossed for a draw.

Barry Town United vs Cardiff Met

I called two wins for Barry.

Game one finished 1-1.

Shows what I know.

I still think Barry will win in Cyncoed.

You watch them bloody lose now.

Newtown vs Aberystwyth Town

In my predictions, I felt that these sides would share the spoils in the form of a win apiece.

They did share the spoils at Latham Park with a 1-1 draw.

I’m not really doing very well so far…

Carmarthen Town vs Pen-y-Bont

Finally! Things are looking up for me, as I called two wins for Carmarthen.

They won the first game 3-2.

It’s all geared up for the return leg in Bridgend on Monday afternoon.

Caernarfon vs Bala

Game one was broadcast live on S4C on Boxing Day and as Bala took the 2-1 victory with a nice little move from Chris Veneables, that was 20% pure Zlatan, I was cursing my prediction of a Caernarfon victory.

But when I came to write this post this morning, it appears I called a win and a draw for Bala.

So I might well come out on top yet!

All the games take place on Monday 30th December with 7.45 kick offs, except for Pen-y-Bont vs Carmarthen, which is apparently 2.30pm.

I’ll report back on Tuesday with my findings!

If you like predictions and me making a fool of myself, why not check out my feature, Liam vs Lawro, where I take on the BBC’s Mark Lawrenson (without his knowledge) to predict the scores in the English Premier League.

I am a writer and a poet. I say that but, actually, I’m one of those annoying breed of people who pretentiously call themselves writers and/or poets but don’t actually do any writing and stay depressed at their lack of productivity. Far more accurate would be to say that I am an arrogant, ill informed and over opinionated sod with an under developed ability to sense when he’s not funny. But “writer and poet” sounds better and I’m sticking with it. A friend – clearly fed up with my moaning about never producing any body of writing – suggested that I start a blog. My first reaction was “what the **** am I going to write about that anyone will want to read?” Then it dawned on me that it is fairly certain no one will ever read a single word I say on here. But that’s fine. I’m used to talking to myself. In school, I used to spend hours imagining I was a dragon who ran his own restaurant. Or, while playing “mummies and daddies,” I once proclaimed myself Granddad, shipped myself off to war, was promptly shot and killed and lay there dead for the rest of play time (and the entirely of the subsequent three play times). Don’t get me wrong. I had friends. Or at least I don’t recall being conscious of not having friends. I just used to spend a lot of time in my own little world. Not a lot has changed really. So! If you’re a real life human being who has stumbled across my little blog: erm, sorry! You’re really not getting these wasted minutes of your life back. I can’t even offer you photos of grumpy cats to compensate you. Peace and love! xx
