What does the wonderful world of Mark Lawrenson, the so-called BBC’s ‘expert pundit’, have to offer us this week? Lets see…

Looking at his column on BBC Sport, Lawro’s predictions – here, I see that the ‘football expert’, having been right in his last 3 as far as Pompey go – result wise anyway, tips us to be beaten at Sunderland…

That, given Sunderland’s home record, is a fair shout I guess – that is not to say that I hope he is wrong of course!

This is what he said: ‘I just cannot work out Sunderland. They should be doing better than they are.

‘Against Liverpool, Manchester United and Arsenal you can see what they are capable of producing. But in certain games they have capitulated – though this happens more on the road than at home.

‘Portsmouth really do worry me. Having to borrow money repeatedly to be able to pay players’ wages just will not work in the long term.

‘I get the impression that Peter Storrie has been marginalised. The chief executive is really good at his job – and they should let him get on with it. If they don’t I think there could be real, real problems.

‘We have not had a club go out of business in the Premier League but every other day there seems to be a story about the finances at the club.

‘Verdict: 2-1’

The guy has not REALLY based much, if any, of his decision making on actual on the field reasoning has he?

That said, however he has got to this conclusion, few would argue with him would they?

Then again they do have injury and suspension issues so NOW is the time for us to take advantage!

What do we think guys?

Have your say and ensure that you get in your prediction in on the Vital Pompey predictions league – Sunderland – 12/12/09.

PLAY UP POMPEY!
