"Surprise team - Fulham if they can sort their away form out" --CAPT KAYOS

and finally, well done Eddie, who was the only one to pick Man U as champions.

Fulham Fools :wstu:

Not far off with Man U though - looks like my septic powers where a bit premature here, however looks like I could be on for next season now. ;)

Wow! A top six spot! I'm chuffed as a maggot.

Does this mean I have to predict next year's qualifiers for the UEFA Cup from all over Europe?

Thanks to Philly Rover for doing the sums.

Time for the annual Preston hairdresser review.

Thought this was a decent place to put it. So to explain……

First up is the real end of season table -

.                 P     GD    pts
Man Utd           38    56    89 
Chelsea           38    40    83 
Liverpool         38    30    68 
Arsenal           38    28    68 
Tottenham         38     3    60 
Everton           38    16    58 
Bolton            38    -5    56 
Reading           38     5    55 
Portsmouth        38     3    54 
Blackburn         38    -2    52 
Aston Villa       38     2    50 
Middlesbrough     38    -5    46 
Newcastle         38    -9    43 
Man City          38   -15    42 
West Ham          38   -24    41
Fulham            38   -22    39 
Wigan             38   -22    38 
Sheff Utd         38   -23    38 
Charlton          38   -26    34 
Watford           38   -30    28

Now here’s the table according to Lawrenson’s predictions over the season……

.                  P    GD    pts
Man Utd           38    62    98 
Chelsea           38    60    96 
Arsenal           38    50    88 
Liverpool         38    44    81 
Bolton W          38    14    65 
Tottenham         38    16    63 
Aston V           38     0    58 
Everton           38     5    56 
Wigan A           38    -1    54 
Portsmouth        38     3    51 
Blackburn         38    -5    50 
West Ham          38    -3    47 
Sheff Utd         38   -25    34 
Charlton          38   -15    32 
Newcastle         38   -24    31
Fulham            38   -27    28 
Reading           38   -28    27 
Middlesboro       38   -34    26 
Man City          38   -39    19 
Watford           38   -42    17

Not guaranteeing it's perfect but it's not too far out.

And finally a table to show the difference between the real world and Lawrenson’s predictions (positive numbers indicate reality was better than Lawrenson and vice versa) –

.                  P    GD    pts
Reading            38   33    28 
Man City           38   24    22 
Middlesbrough      38   29    20 
Newcastle          38   15    12 
Watford            38   12    11 
Fulham             38    5    11 
Sheff Utd          38    2     4 
Portsmouth         38    0     3 
Everton            38   11     2 
Blackburn          38    3     2 
Charlton           38  -11     2 
Tottenham          38  -13    -3 
West Ham           38  -21    -6
Aston Villa        38    2    -8
Man Utd            38   -6    -9
Bolton W           38  -19    -9
Liverpool          38  -14   -13
Chelsea            38  -20   -13
Wigan              38  -21   -16
Arsenal            38  -22   -20

So Reading, Man City, and Boro were this season’s big losers, all doing much better than the hairdresser predicted whilst Arsenal did much worse.

Unlike last year, he wasn’t way out with us. Couple of things I did notice though : like last year, Boro did much better than he predicted, and both Chelsea and (especially) Arsenal did much worse. Maybe him and Arsene have something going.

Now where’s that anorak gone…..

Wow, I'm quite surprised Lawro predicted Wigan would get 54 points :unsure:

Is that based on weekly predictions too? That means he kept on backing them, despite their naffness.

Pretty pleased with my joint fourteenth placed finish in my first season. Steered well clear of relegation and hoping to kick on next year :rover:

Got two of the three relegated teams, and Fulham could have easily gone down too...I never felt Reading were going to be in severe trouble, but boy did they outperform my expectations! Overestimated Wigan too. Looking forward to next season's predictions!
