On the Forecast: Gameweek 15

He redefined the terms Loyal & Insomnia

WHAM vs WIG I choose this fixture as the most interesting match up this week as both are at the bottom of the table and just came back from a drubbing after registering a solid run before that. The Hammers fell awkwardly at Anfield and to make the matter worse, first; they sacked the assistant manager, second; the club owner gave Grant less than three matches to save his job and third; Carlton Cole criticised his manager due to poor tactics. I smell disharmony there.

Slight advantage to Martinez's Wigan then. At Manchester, they played well and managed to contain United for 45 minutes. The two sent offs proved to be the downturn and they crashed comprehensively. Nzogbia again the focal point and expect him to cause the havoc again.

Based on current events, I feel that Wigan has the opportunity to win this one compared to West Ham and as a matter of fact, its not looking too good for Avram Grant as his time may be running out. Wigan will not lose the relegation six pointer.

Our Super Sunday this week is the match between the previous premiership number four and the former premiership number four TOT vs LIV. Fresh from beating Arsenal at The Emirates and qualifying for the Champions league knockout rounds, Spurs fortune are looking good while Arsenal succumbed to two consecutive defeats and their playmaker was injured.

Surprisingly, Liverpool looked solid even without Gerrard and eager to punish tired Spurs after having a good rest during midweek. Van Der Vaart looks to play a part after resting on Wednesday and Torres to continue his progress. I am relishing on the prospect of Bale versus Konchesky/Glen Johnson ;D. A draw with both teams conceding.

Shut up and let me do the business

Remaining matches:-

AST vs ARS - Nasri will take all set piece duties if Van Persie is not in the lineup after the Fab loss; Downing, Carew & Young have the home advantage to count for to provide necessary attacks on the wounded Gunners; A draw.

BOL vs BLP - Usual suspects (Elmander, Davies & Lee) to continue looking formidable at home even though clean sheet is hard to come by; The Tangerines to fight gung ho style and accept what ever result coming their way as they have nothing to lose; Latest casualty; Marlon Harewood; Home success.

EVE vs WBA - Expect a lot of headers from Cahill's as Arteta & Coleman provide the required ammunitions; Away fixture with a fragile defense are not a good sign to start with as Odemwingie still on his way to his best; A home win but not an easy one..

FUL vs BIR - Fulham will not lose this one after they easily crumbled to City last time out due to ineffective tactics; Brums coming to this one on a high note after the Chelsea win and expect the defense to outshone the attack again; A draw with end to end action.

MANU vs BLA - Quite a tough opposition for United but Rooney & Co should do the job well; David Dunn will deputise on Gamst Pedersen absence (if his injury is confirmed) but Allardyce will miss their talisman service; Uncomfortable win like Wigan.

STK vs MANC - Both recorded a high scoring win away last time and I expect City to prove their doubters wrong by winning at Stoke; If not then we expect everybody chanting 'Money Can Not Buy Success' in our ears again; City will at least draw the game.

WOL vs SUN - Wolves need a win very badly and The Black Cats offer a huge opportunity after their defensive duo of Bramble and Turner entered a long layoffs; But they have a tough task in their hands to tackle Sunderland impressive strikers (Gyan, Welbeck & Bent); Both teams draw with no clean sheet.

NEW vs CHE - Drogba & Malouda will be determined to put their team back on the right track against depleted Newcastle (Suspension trio: Barton, Collocini & Williamson); I really don't know about Newcastle as they tend to win when we least expected but with Sol Campbell at the back, El Drog will fancy his chances; Chelsea never lost three in a row. 

Latest: NEW vs CHE match could be postponed due to heavy snow in the north east of Britain. Please check Saturday news for confirmation. Good luck guys...
