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 he has us down for, yep you guessed it another defeat at Hull, having surprisingly tipped us to hold Spurs last week…

This is what he said: ‘Hull never looked like scoring against Fulham and really struggled. At least they have improved in their home games.

‘Pompey have played better than their results suggest but both teams are at the wrong end of the table. I think they’ll be both down there at the end of the season as well. This game is a 24-pointer! I’m seeing this as a relegation dogfight already!

‘Verdict: 1-0.’

Boy am I glad that he fully justified the reasons why Hull will win and we will lose, had he not explained this I would have been at a loss – oh, hang on he has not given any reasons at all apart from saying ‘both teams are rubbish.’

Clearly he stuck in a pin, rolled a dice or tossed a coin on this one as there seems to be little reasoning to his thoughts – unlike other predictions he made. Hull and Pompey must be beneath him, although of course the bin dippers will ‘brush aside’ their worst form in over 20-years to claim a point against Manyoo, simples…

What do we think guys?

Have your say and ensure that you get in your prediction in on the Vital Pompey predictions league – Hull (a) – 24/10/09.
