The Long Ball Tactic

Lawro’s best week ever

Posted in Uncategorized by mike on January 9, 2010

With the inclement weather playing havoc with the weekend’s football the nation’s media have virtually ground to a standstill. Programming schedules which were to be filled with football coverage are now filled with angry ex-pros fuming about games being called off. Sky Sport’s Peter Beagrie is cycling around the village greens of the north east, clutching a microphone and hand-held camera, looking for anything that resembles a football game to cover on Soccer Saturday. Messers Bhasin and Claridge prepare for the most riveting Football League Show of all time.

People from all walks of life are impressed with Lawro's predictions

Amongst all the chaos one man sits alone in a flat in Preston, heating turned up full, five league winner’s medals hanging around his neck, sipping sherry and watching Last of the Summer Wine on DVD. That man is, of course, Mark Lawrenson.

Checking Lawro’s predictions for the weekend’s football is, I imagine, a weekly ritual for all fans. Let’s have a look at how he did this week:

Hull P-P Chelsea (1245)

Postponed for safety reasons

Correct!

Burnley P-P Stoke

Postponed for safety reasons

Correct!

Fulham P-P Portsmouth

Postponed for safety reasons

Correct!

Sunderland P-P Bolton

Postponed for safety reasons

Correct!

Wigan P-P Aston Villa

Postponed because of a frozen pitch

Correct!

West Ham P-P Wolves

Postponed because of conditions in the area surrounding Upton Park

Correct!

Liverpool P-P Tottenham

Postponed for safety reasons

Correct!

And people try and tell me Lawro is rubbish! Well done Mark, you’ve certainly earned your sherry this weekend.
