Writers Prediction League - Spurs at West Ham

Julian Finney

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

Monday Night Football, y'all. After seeing Chelsea lose on the weekend, Spurs have a chance to go into a clear third place on the table. With just 12 games left in the season, it's getting to crunch time for Tottenham Hotspur.

Monday night brings a trip to East London as West Ham play host to Spurs. The Hammers have been inconsistent this season, midtable and outside of the relegation fight after last season's promotion from The Championship. The team has still largely been led by Kevin Nolan at attacking midfield, with Andy Carroll the main man at striker. Joe Cole has provided a boost at winger, while Winston Reid has marshaled the team at centerback.

As for the Prediction League, Petrilli, Ryan, and The Roosevelts dropped perfect predictions that have things all knotted up at first. 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 19
Mechanick 19
Petrilli 19
Ryan 15
Ed 14
Uncle Menno 13
Kevin 12
The Roosevelts 12

This week's predictions:

Kevin: West Ham have been mediocre lately. I'm still not confident about our midfield and striker situation at all, but we're the much better side. 2-1 Spurs

Mechanick: Parker gives Kevin Nolan a nightmare of a day, as Adebayor gets scoring. 2-0 Spurs

Ryan: Are you ready for some football? Some Monday Night Footballlllllllllllllll? 2-1 Spurs.

Ashlock: Tottenham Hotspur are good. West Ham are not. 1-0 Spurs.

The Roosevelts: TBD

Ed: The Great Midfield Troubles of 2013 may not have been resolved yet, but Tottenham can still overmatch a Hammers side that has never really shown enough variety or dimension to stay completely above water this season. 3-1 Spurs.

Petrilli: Hank Williams Jr. with a brace, and at least 20 racial epithets. Spurs 2-1

Uncle Menno: The Hammers play shambolic defense, Adebayor will be keen as mustard and breaks his duck, the Bale to Madrid rumors will be all my eye and Peggy Martin, I use way too many indecipherable British idioms for a Yank, and Bob's your uncle. 2-0 Spurs, and I'm one over the eight.
