Round 20, the final round of the Beat Lawro season.
Last summer saw the former and the current Station Managers of RaW beat the Sport team in the Euro 2008 predictions.
Preceding that, the Sport team lost to Mark ‘Lawro’ Lawrenson (who finished on 77 points) in a season long battle. Former double Head of Sport, Adam Wilbourn finished as the runner up last season, in the end just 5 points behind Lawro.
So, the Sport team has repeatedly been humiliated and their ability to predict the outcomes of football matches has been called into question.
This season, after 19 rounds, Lawro once again leads the Beat Lawro standings with 99 points and Wilbourn is his closest challenger, 14 points behind.
This weekend, as it is the final round of the season, we’re implementing double league points, although Wilbourn is requesting more!
This weekend’s matches to predict are:
Arsenal v Stoke (2-0)
Aston Villa v Newcastle (2-0)
Blackburn v West Brom (2-1)
Fulham v Everton (2-1)
Hull v Man Utd (1-1)
Liverpool v Tottenham (2-1)
Man City v Bolton (2-0)
Sunderland v Chelsea (0-2)
West Ham v Middlesbrough (2-1)
Wigan v Portsmouth (2-1)
Submit your predictions by 4pm this Sunday and we’ll compare yours against our team in the studio. If you do well enough, you’ll appear on our league table!
