Predict the Premier League: Portsmouth and Fulham lead the way

Bookmark and Share

The Christmas and New Year period may now be a distance memory as we get back to work but it's a period that Portsmouth's Peter Rendle and Fulham's Russell Goldman won't forget in a hurry.

Our Portsmouth pundit from the land down under came out on top following a great festive period with a score of 23 from Boxing Day up to the recent midweek fixtures, which is pretty impressive considering the amount of shock results we had.

Peter Rendle was closely followed by our Fulham expert Russell Goldman on 21. It was definitely a great time to be a Fulham fan as they drew with Chelsea at the Bridge and beat Arsenal at the Cottage.

Birmingham's Steve Coulter managed to close the gap on Blackpool's Phil Trow to eight points following his festive haul of 18 points, compared to the leader's tally of 15. Steve's tally included a full three points for being the only pundit to tip Swansea to record their first away win of the season at Aston Villa 2-0, which was made more remarkable by the fact that the Villians had thrashed Chelsea at the Bridge just days earlier.

It wasn't good news for Rochdale's Matt Turner who propped up the table with nine points, and was joined in the bottom three by Squarefootball editor Antony Melvin and Portsmouth's Dan Taylor. However, Dan was the only pundit in the Experts section to predict Spurs to beat West Brom by just 1-0.

Other pundits who deserve a mention include Leeds United's Phil Bundy, who was the only one to predict Norwich would beat QPR 2-1 at Loftus Road, and myself for being the only one to tip Bolton to beat Everton at Goodison Park.

Here is a break down of who scored what from Boxing Day up to January 5.



And here is how those scores have affected the overall table
