2006/2007 Predictions Revisited

Now that the Premiership season is over, it’s time to take a look back to see how my predictions faired and how they compared with the predictions from, you, the readers.My predictions (final position shown in parenthesis):1. Arsenal (4th)2. Chelsea (2nd)3. Liverpool (3rd)4. Tottenham Hotspur (5th)5. Manchester United (1st)6. Newcastle United (13th)7. Blackburn Rovers (10th)8. Wigan Athletic (17th)9. Bolton Wanderers (7th)10. Everton (6th)11. Aston Villa (11th)12. West Ham United (15th)13. Watford (20th)14. Manchester City (14th)15. Reading (8th)16. Portsmouth (9th)17. Middlesbrough (12th)———————————–18. Fulham (16th)19. Sheffield United (18th)20. Charlton Athletic (19th)I totally underestimated Man United and Watford. United had only signed Carrick and I, along with many pundits out there, thought that United couldn’t compete especially after Ruud van Nistelrooy was let go. Watford would have been far more dangerous this season if it wasn’t for the injury to Jamaican striker Marlon King. Meanwhile if Liverpool had beaten Fulham at Craven Cottage, I would have correctly predicted all three relegated clubs.Here are some of the predictions that you, the readers, submitted:

    I wouldn’t really say you *underestimated* Watford, given that you had them escaping relegation by some way and they were relegated some weeks before the end of the season… and, as has been said, you wouldn’t have got the bottom three right if Liverpool had beaten Fulham, as Fulham would have gone down along with Charlton and Watford.

    Are you a Spurs fan Gaf? 4th smacks of a heart-bet.

    Otherwise not too shabby

    You predicted:

    18. Fulham (16th)
    19. Sheffield United (18th)
    20. Charlton Athletic (19th)

    So, this comment “Meanwhile if Liverpool had beaten Fulham at Craven Cottage, I would have correctly predicted all three relegated clubs” as you didn’t have Watford in the bottom 3.
