Well, Mystic Mug is a smug git this week! Not only did he beat Lawro in the prediction but he also got the first correct score prediction of the season!

So far:

Hammers – Villa win, both right
Newcastle away – Lawro said Newcastle win CORRECT… Mystic Villa win .. WRONG
Everton at home, Lawro said Villa win CORRECT – Mystic said 0-0 draw WRONG
Stoke away – Villa lost, Lawro CORRECT, Mystic was WRONG again
Bolton home – 1-1 draw, Lawro and Mystic both said Villa win WRONG
Wolves away – 2-1 to Villa, Lawro WRONG – Mystic CORRECT and with a bullseye on the score as well (first one for either)

So far 3-2 to Lawro and one correct score to Mystic

This time around Lawro says 2-0 to Spurs saying they looked good against FC Twente, adding on the BBC site, “None of this playing-for-a-draw stuff, they’ve gone out to Werder Bremen and then again against Twente to play football and win the games. Occasionally that approach might see teams come unstuck but at this stage it doesn’t matter because I think Spurs are going to win enough games to qualify.”

And on us: “As for Villa, they are also on the back of a win – but it’s a little different given they were hanging on at the end against Wolves last week. Had Wolves had a bit more about them up front, they could have got a draw at least. It will take time for Gerard Houllier’s philosophy and his tactics to bed in at Villa. With that in mind, I see Spurs getting the win.”

Ok, so Lawro says a win to Spurs and so Mystic is going to disagree to try to make it 3-3. However no matter how much he rubs it, he hasn’t the balls to say a Villa win and is going for a well earnt 1-1 draw.
