Cymru Premier Week 8 Review

Right! I’ve just finished watching the goals of Sgorio and now time to update you all on my success from last week. How did I do? Well, if I was following the same format as last season and just trying to predict the outcome, I’d be pleased with having called 50% of the games correctly.Continue reading “Cymru Premier Week 8 Review”

Why You Should Watch TNS vs Connah’s Quay

Check out the BBC Sport fixtures list for Tuesday and, aside from Liechenstein vs San Marino, nothing really stands out as worthy of your attention. But I’m here to tell you, you are wrong. You’ll need to scroll down. A lot. Past the Scottish League Cup. Past the FA Cup Third Qualifying Round. Past theContinue reading “Why You Should Watch TNS vs Connah’s Quay”

England 3 – 0 Wales Review

As soon as this game was announced, I could barely contain my indifference. It’s not that I’m scared of playing England, it just doesn’t excite me. I don’t worry about losing, I’m Welsh, I’m used to it. To paraphrase Bane, I didn’t taste an international tournament until I was already a man. I’m not evenContinue reading “England 3 – 0 Wales Review”

Cymru Premier Week 8 Preview

Seven games into the Cymru Premier season and I think it’s about time that I resurrected my weekly predictions blog, which all went to pot last year with that old Covid-19 chestnut. Last term, I restricted myself to just trying to predict the outcome of the game and steered well clear of taking a popContinue reading “Cymru Premier Week 8 Preview”

Cymru Premier League Festive Round-up

The final whistles have blown across pretty much all of the festive double headers in the Cymru Premier League. Only Pen-y-Bont vs Carmarthen remains outstanding. Despite what I said in my previous post (https://couchpotatoscorner.sport.blog/2019/12/28/cymru-premier-festive-fixtures/) this game didn’t take place at 2.30 today, rather it takes place at 2.30 on New Year’s Day. In the immortalContinue reading “Cymru Premier League Festive Round-up”

Liam vs Lawro: New Years Day Fixtures

Happy New Year! Almost. We have another full Premier League fixtures list on January 1st. That’s three editions of Liam vs Lawro in just six days. Jose is right. Subjecting pundits to this frequency of football is inhuman. Anyway, mustn’t bitch, I’ll have a week off with the FA Cup next weekend. After two weeks,Continue reading “Liam vs Lawro: New Years Day Fixtures”

Liam vs Lawro: 28-29th December 2019 Results

This is the second week I’ve taken on BBC Sports’ Mark Lawrenson, trying to predict the scores from the week’s Premier League programme. In week one, Lawro beat me 50-30 (you get 40 points for a correct scoreline and 10 points for a correct outcome). How would I fair in week two? Brighton and HoveContinue reading “Liam vs Lawro: 28-29th December 2019 Results”

Stop Bitching About VAR, Start Bitching About The Offside Law

I’ve just finished watching Brighton’s 2-0 win over Bournemouth and it’s about time I threw my two cents in on the whole VAR debate. VAR is great. It works just fine in places like the Bundesliga and Major League Soccer so I don’t really understand the stick it gets here. For me, the real issueContinue reading “Stop Bitching About VAR, Start Bitching About The Offside Law”

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 andContinue reading “Cymru Premier Festive Fixtures”

Liam vs Lawro: 28-29th December 2019

On to game day two of my weekly quest to take on BBC Sport’s Mark Lawrenson with Premier League predictions. Lawro just edged in 50-30 last week (https://couchpotatoscorner.sport.blog/2019/12/28/liam-vs-lawro-boxing-day-results/) and I’m kicking myself with a couple of my predictions. Let’s see if I can go one better this time out. As always, you get 40 pointsContinue reading “Liam vs Lawro: 28-29th December 2019”
