On the Forecast: Gameweek 29

Can we really depend on these blokes?
Everton & Birmingham face each other on midweek but first Everton have to negotiate through on form Newcastle especially at their home turf; Everton's sole purpose now is to get to Europe and at the same time avoid being dragged to the relegation zone; Their stars are favourite for the double but honestly none of them are worth transferring; I think most of us have one of these men, the setpiece hogging Baines and OOP (out-of-position) Coleman; 

Maybe you can use RVP money to get Beckford or Saha for just a one week wonder; KNolan-lead Newcastle still Barton-less and their defense are looking interestingly solid; There should be capable enough to upset anyone and do a double on Everton;

The new Carling Cup champion should be on the up this weekend and there will be no problem against The Baggies; But Hodgson seems to instill some stability in their play and based on their last two games, they were very hard to break while their never say die attitude was impressive; 

This fixture can be considered another relegation six-pointer as only one point separated them above the relegation zone; It looks like a feisty encounter with a draw the likely result;

Brums visit to Everton is a tough one to predict; Over the two fixtures, Birmingham defenders are the must have but attack-wise, Everton players are the best; For me, I just play all my Brums & Everton players for the sake of the double and hope for a miracle; Honest prediction, Everton to punish Brums tired legs ;  

ARS vs SUN RVP will not be missed after Bendtner hat-trick but Chamakh is playing on his own on the front tip of Arsenal formation and may share the spoils; Arguably, I reckon Sunderland to emerge from their daydreaming and make the life difficult for Wenger's boys as they must be concentrating on the Nou Camp; I boldly go for a draw but if Arsenal indeed win, it will be a tight affair;

BOL vs AST Villa conceded defeat before the game started at Manchester City and they will not have the luxury of attacking spaces that Rovers provided; The Trotters are known to be a tough nut to crack and with the hot rod Sturridge on OCoyle's disposal, Villa fragile defense could be busy; Battle of the wingers to produce another interesting stalemate;

FUL vs BLA A bit nostalgic for MHughes as he is facing his former managerial outfit; Fulham are indeed on the roll currently and their strike force look menacing from game to game; Honestly, I can't see the light at the end of the tunnel for Rovers as they precariously close to the bottom three and I'm afraid they can be the outside candidate to be dropped; Sorry Steve Kean, full home points;

Prepare for the 'No holds barred' battle royale

WHAM vs STK Stoke should be very afraid to visit the Reds-conqueror home as their one and only objective (avoid relegation) pushes them to a brink of safety; The Hammers have an array of reliable attackers to rely to while Hitzlsperger effect should spur them on; Stoke don't have a clear objective and couldn't finish off West Brom last time out at home; I go with the more determined side to settle the tie;

MANC vs WIG No other result I can think off right now after they were comprehensively beaten by impressive United last week; But premiership can be too cruel as United crumbled at Stamford Bridge; The news of the week for City, Kolo Toure is facing a two years suspension after tested positive in the drug test; Lescott looks sure to deputies while Tevez is fully rested; Wigan inconsistency still remain and they can produce the unexpected any time but I agree with the majority, Citizen home win;

LIV vs MANU Wounded United need to avoid defeat in Anfield to strengthen their grip at the summit while Reds need a win to have a realistic chance towards Europe; A very tight affair is expected with Berbs absentee a high possibility; Just play all the Nanis & Rooneys but do the opposite on the away defense though (No Rio & Vidic), not a good omen for United young defenders if Carroll is available; I tend to prefer the home side in this type of fixture with Gerrard, Kuyt, Meireles and Suarez all capable as the outcome decider; I reluctantly predict an obvious draw with the slight edge to Liverpool to make the title a bit interesting;

WOL vs TOT Spurs look ordinary without Bale and VDV and they are more interested in the Champs League I guess; No problem then for Wolves but their on form man Jamie O'hara is unavailable against his parent club; The home side are more motivated in their quest to escape the bottom three while Spurs are looking forward to settle the Milan tie; Draw for both;

BLP vs CHE Its hard not to agree with the fantasy pundits as this match will be a potential drubbing and Torres might open his account here; Blackpool looked headless without CAdam and with DJCampbell suspended, a result other than a comfortable win will be a shocker of the season; I believe Ancelotti will do his job properly in this matchup but The Tangerines might sneak a goal though to say at least;

Transfer wisely and may the force be with you managers...
