Writers Predictions League: Spurs at Stoke City

New, comments
Will Stoke be flying tomorrow?
Will Stoke be flying tomorrow?

The Spurs machine cannot be stopped. 10 wins in the club's last 11 league matches has launched the team into third place. The team is scoring, racking up multiple goals in every game during the streak, and the defense has been stingy, allowing only one goal in the last three league matches.

But in the way this week is a trip to the most terrifying place on the footballing planet: cold, windy Stoke. The Potters have found a vein of form after an inconsistent start to the season, as the team has achieved two straight league wins and advanced to the knockout stage of the Europa League. The team is led by surprise star striker Jonathan Walters, while Matthew Etherington has continued to provide consistent service.

The Writers Prediction League continues, as Bryan Ashlock and Ryan Rosenblatt battle for first place on top. The rest of the writers stand further behind, looking to hit those perfect predictions that can launch them into the title chase.. The rules remain, one point for a correct prediction, a bonus point for getting the score correct. Here's the current standings:

Name Score
Ryan 12
Ashlock 11
Mechanick 7
Kevin 7
Evan 6
The Roosevelts 6

This week's predictions after the jump:

Kevin: 0-0 Draw. F--king Stoke.

Ashlock: Tottenham eke out a close victory over the Potters. 2-1 Spurs

Mechanick: It's a cold, windy afternoon in Stoke. Thus this game will be ugly, but Spurs eke this one out. 1-0 Spurs.

Ryan: We'll do a poor job finishing and end up baaaaaaarely holding on for a 2-1 Win.

The Roosevelts: 4-1 Win, Crouch pulls back a late one off a header after 86 minutes of Spurs beastmode. #positiveroosevelts

Evan: Spurs keep rolling in the EPL...sorry Potters! 2-0 Spurs.
