Writers Prediction League - Spurs at Cardiff City

Michael Steele

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

An opportunity. Dropped points by Tottenham's competition have Spurs positioned to go first in the league with a win.

In the way is a trip to Wales to face Cardiff City. Cardiff has five points after four games, a strong start marked by a home victory over Manchester City. The strikeforce has been led by Frazier Campbell, as the former Sunderland striker has found success with The Bluebirds. Former Spurs centerback Steven Caulker leads the defense while summer signing Gary Medel has marshaled the midfield.

As for the Prediction League, MCofA's perfect prediction saw him tie Ed for the lead. 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
Ed 5
MCofA 5
Kevin 4
Ashlock 4
The Sleeper's Sleep 4
Skipjack 3
Uncle Menno 3
Petrilli 3
Mechanick 3
Ryan 3
Lennon's Eyebrow 3
The Roosevelts 2

This week's predictions:

Kevin: What's a Cardiff? 2-0 Spurs.

Mechanick: A huge performance from Eriksen lifts the squad. 2-1 Spurs.

Ryan: I know it may look like I was being like a bitch, but that's only because I was acting like a bitch. 2-0 Spurs.

Ashlock: Cardiff are doing their best to make their home a fortress and we know that players almost always score against their former teams. But we're better than Cardiff, so 3-1 Spurs.

The Roosevelts: Baaa Baaa Baaa 2-1 Spurs hey what's that on my ass?

Ed: 2-1 Spurs. Steven Caulker scores off a set piece and single-handedly prevents an absolute landslide at the other end.

Petrilli: 2-1 Spurs. It's too bad that we can't wear our blue third kits due to Cardiff's historic blue kits.

Uncle Menno: Playing at Cardiff scares me a little, because they're not crap. But only a little. The Bluebirds Red Dragons Welsh Dudes will make it interesting, but it ultimately won't matter. Also, Sandro will knock Caulker the fuck out on an aerial challenge. Take that, Man Mountain. 2-1 Spurs

MCofA: 2-1 Spurs. Because of reasons. I'm tired.

The Sleeper's Sleep: Imagine if Malky Mackay & Mick McCarthy had a baby. 3-1 Spurs.

Lennon's Eyebrow: Steven Caulker and Frazier Campbell spend the match reminding everyone why they weren't good enough for Spurs. 2-0 Good Guys.

Skipjack: Tottenham 2 - Cardiff 0. Tottenham storm to a victory as Christian Eriksen picks the lock ... of my heart.
