Sutton's Predictions - The New "Lawro" Thread

Post by -DL- »

West Ham v Man City (16:30)
West Ham have signed striker Gianluca Scamacca from Sampdoria but I don't think he's up to speed yet.

My main worry with the Hammers, though, is at the back. They spent a few quid on defender Nayef Aguerd earlier this summer, but he is out injured.

So I don't see the Hammers causing City problems like they did when they drew 2-2 at London Stadium at the end of last season.

City hit five past them there on the opening day a couple of years ago and I think they will get a few goals this time too.

Pep Guardiola's side were not at their best against Liverpool in the Community Shield but I'm expecting an improvement this time, and I also think Erling Haaland will open his account.

Sutton's prediction: 0-3
What an absolute ****!

This thread takes things to a new level. Sutton will make Lawro seem like a breath of fresh air.

4 minute gap between closure and re-launch. What took you so long?

Can I be the first to mention badgers?

That kept 4x clean sheets in the league in 2022, fortunately coming across Norwich twice in the second part of the season
(other clean sheets were vs Watford and Wolves, in 1-0 victories).

Our defensive weaknesses led to our finishing 7th and not higher.

It is fair comment?

The only thing he's got wrong is that I think we'll score a goal. Other than that, he's probably right.

The true meaning of a Lawro is when we play a Bournemouth and he has us getting beat 5-0.

We were hardly relegation fodder. And considering the run of games we had it was more a team issue from Jan onwards playing the same players every game. Fatigue led to us ending up 7th.

Don't actually think that's too unreasonable.

I'd put us down for 0-2
