Writers Prediction League - Spurs at Aston Villa

Scott Heavey

The writers at Cartilage Free Captain predict the result for Tottenham Hotspur's match at Aston Villa.

Recovery. Tottenham Hotspur are coming off an embarrassing 3-0 loss to West Ham, marked by poor defending and a limp attacking performance. The international break has hopefully revitalized the squad, as a large number of Spurs' squad featured prominently for their international teams.

Today's match sees Spurs travel to Aston Villa. The Villans currently sit in midtable on 10 points. The team has been led by Christian Benteke, as the Belgium starlet has already scored four times on the season. Benteke has some dynamic support in Andi Weimann and Gabby Agbonlahor whose pace will push the Spurs backline. Ron Vlaar has become the marshal of the Villa defense, while Brad Guzan has arguably been the top goalkeeper in the Premier League so far this season.

As for the Prediction League, nobody foresaw Spurs losing to West Ham. The rules remain the same in the Prediction League--one point for a correct prediction and a bonus point for getting the score correct. Here are the current standings:

The Sleeper's Sleep 7

MCofA 6

Uncle Menno 5

This week's predictions:

Kevin: We're a crap team spiraling out of control. Or something. 2-2 Draw

Mechanick: Chadli and Soldado get goals in a convincing victory. 2-0 Spurs.

Ryan: I have this theory, that if you cut off all her hair she'd look like a British man. 2-0 Spurs

Ashlock: Andros Townsend continues to be good, much to my chagrin, and Erik Lamela starts to question his existence. Spurs 3-1.

The Roosevelts: Annnnnnnnnd Ed's retirement lasts even less time than Bryan's, what a competitor. 2-1 Spurs

Ed: AVB changes things, to the dismay of everyone. Alternatively, AVB changes nothing, to the dismay of everyone. 0-0 Draw.

Petrilli: 2-1 Spurs. Metronome will ride again.

Uncle Menno: We should win this, right? I mean, we really should, yeah? Or did I get into the bath salts again? 1-0 Spurs.

MCofA: It's hard to stick my a commitment to being boring and following the numbers. I want excitement and the rush of playing the hunch. But I will remain strong and say boring things. 1-0 Spurs.

The Sleeper's Sleep: IMess with the bull, you get the horns. Mess with the Spurs, you get...um...a rash or something. 2-0 Spurs.

Lennon's Eyebrow: We're good, Villa's not good. 2-1 Spurs.

Skipjack: 1-1 Draw. Fart noise.
