Pudding. Brian Mechanick found himself faced with some "unexpected travel" and wasn't able to get the post finished, so we all know what that means, right? Yep, he's off on a (figgy?) pudding run.  And since I'm a kind and benevolent dictator, I agreed to finish up this post because what would you all do without your weekly dose of Writer's Prediction League?

Tottenham should be favorites against Burnley: they are finally healthy, are playing good football, and are up against a club that's at the bottom of the table. What could possibly go wrong?

As for the Prediction League, three people nailed the win and the final score last week. 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
Michael Caley 13
Ben Daniels 12
Ryan 9
Brett Rainbow 9
Salmon Chase 8
Mechanick 7
Kevin 7
Dominic Wood 7
Bryan A. 6
Skipjack 5
Dustin Gerber Martin 5

This week's predictions:

Dustin Gerber Martin: Lads, it's Burnley. 3-1 Spurs.

Kevin: Burnley sucks, 3-0 Spurs

Mechanick: 2-0 Spurs.

Ryan: This ginger needs her jiggle juice! 3-1 Spurs.

Bryan A.: 3-0 Spurs. No reasoning. I'm just picking numbers at random.

Salmon Chase: I have farts after a night of drinking stouts that smell better than Burnley. 2-0 Spurs.

Ben Daniels: 2-1 Spurs. Burnley are terrible and can't score, but it wouldn't be Spurs if we didn't make things difficult.

Dominic Wood: All I want for Hanukkah is a Spurs win. 2-1.

Michael Caley: 2-0 Spurs. Few fixtures are easier than this one, and it seems like we actually have an XI that work.

Skipjack: 3-1 Spurs. We goin' balls deep.

Brett Rainbow: The complete lack of injuries in our squad means the next two weeks are a great opportunity to make up ground on our top-four rivals. If we want to take advantage, we have to start now. 3-0 Spurs.
