Writers Prediction League: Tottenham Hotspur vs. Aston Villa

New, comments

The writers at Cartilage Free Captain predict the result for Tottenham Hotspur's match vs. Aston Villa.

Ross Kinnaird

So brings the end of the season. Spurs have little to play for in their final match and will finish either 6th or 7th in the table. Any combination of a Spurs point or Manchester United non-win will give Spurs the right to play Europa League in 2014-15. Can Spurs finish strong in what is sure to be Tim Sherwood's last match as Spurs' manager?

In the way today is Aston Villa, currently 16th in the table and escaping relegation after a very poor season. Paul Lambert may very well be managing for his job, as many are calling for a change in coaching after two-straight disappointing seasons. Brad Guzan will try to keep things tight in goal, while Andreas Weimann, Ashley Westwood, and Fabian Delph will be leaned on to lead the attack. Can Villa finish strong and give Lambert the chance to manage for one more season?

As for the Prediction League, Sleep enters the final game with the lead. 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:

This week's predictions:

Ed: 1-0 Villa.

Uncle Menno: Don't even care. 2-2 Draw.

Kevin: LAM-BEHR. 1-0 Spurs.

Mechanick: We're at home. Let's go out with some damn pride. 2-0 Spurs

Ryan: Cause she's a life ruiner. She ruins people's lives. 2-1 Spurs, and next season I'm quoting Pitch Perfect.

Bryan A.: TBD

The Roosevelts: Poop. 2-1 Spurs

Lennon's Eyebrow: Remember last time we played Villa at the end of the season and we needed to win to qualify for the Champions League and instead of trying to win we subbed on Scott Parker? And now we don't have Scott Parker and somehow this season is even worse. I'm so glad it's almost over. 2-1 Spurs.

Petrilli: Two teams who don't give a shit anymore. 2-2 Draw

Michael Caley: 3-2 Spurs. Small tendency to increased goal scoring in "dead rubbers."

The Sleeper's Sleep: *Shiva Blasts* SANDRO RANIERE GUIMARAES CORDEIRO!!!!!!!! 0-0 Draw.

Skipjack: 3-3 Draw. Anna Kendrick is perfect.
