Writers Prediction League - Spurs vs. West Ham

Gareth Copley

The writers at Cartilage Free Captain predict the result for Tottenham Hotspur's match vs. West Ham.

Another London Derby. Spurs enter Sunday in the mix of a extraordinarily tight title fight with little wiggle room for dropped points. A key for Spurs will be getting star striker Roberto Soldado going, as the newcomer has yet to score this season in open play.

Today's match sees West Ham United travel to White Hart Lane to face Tottenham Hotspur. West Ham sits in the relegation places in 18th, with just five points through six games. West Ham's biggest problem has been their attack, only tallying four goals so far this season. Modibo Maiga has become the leader of the strikeforce in Andy Carroll's injury-induced absence. Kevin Nolan remains the marshal of the midfield, while Winston Reid will be the main man tasked with shutting down the Spurs attack.

As for the Prediction League, Mechanick and The Sleeper's Sleep dropped perfect predictions to help push them up the table. 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:

Name Score
Ed 7
The Sleeper's Sleep 7
Kevin 6
MCofA 6
Mechanick 6
Ashlock 6
Uncle Menno 5
Petrilli 4
Skipjack 4
Ryan 4
Lennon's Eyebrow 4
The Roosevelts 3

This week's predictions:

Kevin: Look at me being horrible Mr. Pessimism. 0-0 Draw

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

Ryan: Amber D'Alessio. She made out with a hot dog. 1-0 Spurs.

Ashlock: 5-1 Spurs. Why not?

The Roosevelts: West Ham are better than many teams--who play in the Philadelphia Catholic League. And not many more than that. 3-0 Spurs.

Ed: Something something cup final heartbreak. 2-0 Spurs

Petrilli: 2-1 Spurs. COME ON METRONOME!

Uncle Menno: We are good. West Ham is not so good. 2-0 Spurs, and Soldado breaks his duck.

MCofA: 1-0 Spurs. This is unlikely to be fun.

The Sleeper's Sleep: I've never been less excited for something including the word "ham." 1-0 Spurs.

Lennon's Eyebrow: Geoff Hurst scores a late winner to break Spurs' hearts in a dramatic 4-3 thriller. Oh, it's not 1966? Spurs 3-0.

Skipjack: 2-0 Spurs. Eriksen and Soldado lead to cup final heartbreak for the Hammers
