Writers Prediction League - Spurs at West Brom

Ben Hoskins

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

This is it. After the close of the transfer window, we know the squad that Spurs will try to take a top-4 finish with. The end of the window was marked by the arrival of Lewis Holtby and departure of some young and out-of-favor Spurs players.

In the way this wekend is a trip to the West Midlands. West Brom is the opponent, sitting in 9th place after a hot start to the season. But recent form has brought The Baggies down, as they have been unable to win in a month. Romelu Lukaku remains the leader of the strike force, but the controversy over Peter Odemwingie failed transfer has added some drama to West Brom bootroom.

As for the Prediction League, only Uncle Menno foresaw a draw vs. Norwich City in the midweek. The rules remain the same in the Prediction League--one point for a correct prediction, a bonus point for getting the score correct. Here are the current standings:

Name Score
Ashlock 18
Petrilli 16
Mechanick 16
Ed 13
Ryan 12
Kevin 12
Uncle Menno 12
The Roosevelts 9

This week's predictions:

Kevin :I am in full-on panic mode after our failure to buy a striker and I will spend the entire game breathing into a paper bag. 2-1 West Brom.

Mechanick: With the Odemwingie drama swirling, Spurs steal a win. 1-0 Spurs

Ryan: Lewis Holtby is dreamy. 2-1 Spurs.

Ashlock: We need a big win to get things back on track. A big win against a club competing for fourth is even better. 3-1 Spurs.

The Roosevelts: This is a cup game right? Norwich couldn't possibly be in the Premiership. 3-0 Spurs

Ed: Holtby starts and our improvement trend continues, although not without handing them one goal through shitty defending. Baby steps, guys. 2-1 Spurs.

Petrilli: 2-1 Spurs. Levy reveals that the reason he didn't bother to buy a striker is because HE is our new striker. He gets a brace in our first match.

Uncle Menno: I'm still traumatized from the last time Lukaku played against us, and our back line has not inspired lately. 1-1 Draw. I hope I'm wrong.
