Welcome back from the pesky international break. In a quick recap, last time out Dirk was heartbroken by Sergio’s car accident and didn’t participate while Tyron took full advantage and completely destroyed me in the 10 match game of round 4 (ours not the league’s).
This week I’ve selected a few video clips of Anthony Martial giving some opposing players the ‘nuttee’. Judging by Andros Townsend just walking away it’s humiliating to be on the receiving end but it is oh so glorious for us to watch. And just for shits and giggles I’ve added the TV income and EPL prize money for last season’s Premier League so you can see Sunderland, earned a whopping 1.8 billion Rand while being completely shit. Never ever complain about the money your club spends on players again. Nobody cares when the amounts flowing into their coffers are this big.
RESULT: Liverpool 0 -0 Manchester United
Liverpool 2 – 1 Manchester United
I know United have all the form but it’s away at Liverpool. It’s one of those games which are different to form, and premitions. It feels like a Liverpool win here for me.
Liverpool 1 – 1 Manchester United
I actually think United will win this, but we also know that Liverpool are incredibly dangerous in the big games, before they throw it away against a small team. Ill hedge my bets
Liverpool 0 – 1 Manchester United
I almost went for a draw but I expect Jose to set up in such a way that we counter with pace and take the points on the break.

RESULT: Burnley 1 – 1 West Ham
Burnley 1 – 2 West Ham
Something at West Ham makes it feel like they’ve made the turn into some decent form again. Burnley seemingly are an away side, and think they’ll struggle at home here.
Burnley have been fantastic, but West Ham are showing signs of life at last. Gutsy draw?
I’m not sure West Ham are good enough to win and I’m not sure Burnley are poor enough to lose to them, so a draw is the comfortable middle.
RESULT: Crystal Palace 2 – 1 Chelsea
Crystal Palace 0 – 2 Chelsea
It’s going to be a long season Palace fans… Chelsea will win this one with ease. I don’t even know where Palace are going with Hodgson but they need direction quickly!
Crystal Palace are worse at football than Trump is at Twitter.
Hazard is back as Morata gets injured, surely enough to see off a miserable Palace side missing all their better players.
RESULT: Man City 7 – 2 Stoke City
Man City 3 – 0 Stoke City
City are on a roll, and against an underperforming Stoke at home – it should be a very comfortable win!
Stoke dont travel well. City are good, flippen good!
This match will be forgotten faster than that day Peter Crouch banged in a beaut of a volley against City. One way traffic like most of their games this season.
RESULT: Swansea 2 – 0 Huddersfield
I think Swansea should sneak through a win at home here. Huddersfield have dropped off after an excellent start and Swansea should have enough to get a win here.
This is my crazy game. go big or go home. I suspect both teams will end up going home rather than big!
They are both shit. Next game please.
RESULT: Tottenham 1 – 0 Bournemouth
Even at Wembley Spurs will win this one! The Cherries haven’t had a good start to this season and against Kane in full swing, Spurs 3 points for me all day.
I hate Spurs. But they will win
“Harry Kane he’s one of our own” x 3 is as good a chant as the Spurs fan can muster. They’ll be singing it over and over and over and over and over
RESULT Watford 2 – 1 Arsenal
The injuries in the Arsenal squad point to a disappointing away loss for me here. Watford look a lot better under Silva, and a lot a more consistent. Good home win for me.
Arsenal dont lose at Vicarage Road and I expect the same will continue. Sanchez and Ramsey miss out on the World Cup so it could go either way there.
Sanchez misses out on the World Cup in 2018 will that influence his game? Arsenal to edge it in a tough contest.
RESULT Brighton 1 – 1 Everton
Everton have to start winning? Koeman under pressure, Brighton struggling to score. Think Everton will find 3 points here!
Surely Everton cant get any worse. Or maybe they can
My upset pick for the week .. but I can’t tell you how happy I am that we finally got rid of Rooney.
RESULT Southampton 2 – 2 Newcastle
Tempted to go for Newcastle but think it’ll be a frustrating draw here for both sides.
Newcastle are consistently incosistent. Lets see how it goes
I was quite impressed with the work ethic Newcastle showed against Liverpool. Southampton have squad issues. Also, they shit.
RESULT: Leicester 1 – 1 West Brom
West Brom started brightly but the Foxes have looked better and better. At home I think they’ll have enough against a well organised Pulis side.
I honestly flipped a coin and it landed on its side, draw it is then
I wonder who we playing next.
We would like you to join us in the Superbru leagues ->> just click on the tab to go see the league table and sign up.
This season we score things a little differently, we’ll award 3 points to the outright winner or 1 each for draws. The loser gets none!
