It’s been a good weekend for conspiracy theorists. Once again Dino tops the table, Peter Crouch scores a wonder goal and a referee at Old Trafford fails to locate his bottle. Lest any of you think we’re making this up the table never lies. As you’ll see below a number of us even predicted it. When Crouchy re-enacted Van Basten’s wonder volley of years gone by our resident points plunderer was already en route to another 4 correct results and a perfect score, courtesy of another wonder strike in the 90th minute (you’ll have to look at the prediction table to see which game). Were the football gods so generous with you? This week’s final table has all the answers:
By now you probably have a pretty good idea about where it went all wrong or alright. What you don’t know is whether you were completely wide of the mark or a couple of inches over the bar. As usual our full predictions index has all the answers and doubtless a few lessons thrown in for free:
Fortunately the opportunity to confound the conspiracy theorists has already arrived. If you have an immediate need to put this weekend’s disappointment behind you here’s the link to next weekend’s games. Happy punditry.
After what seems like an eternity we finally have the latest round of results ready for scrutiny. This includes all the League and Cup games played between March 17th and 21st.
The FA Cup illustrated once more that it’s ability to shock remains firmly on the wane. Will we ever again see a high rolling team get a good trousering from a lower league side – it would seem that these days have passed. Strange then that only one of us got more than one perfect score from the 3 completed games.
If you want to see where you won and lost here are your FA Cup predictions in detail (click the chart if you want to see it larger).
The Premiership has been like an elongated pub crawl, with the most recent games stretched over 5 days and some significant goals sneaking in before last orders, especially in the 78th minute. QPR 3 – Liverpool 2 was possibly the pick of the bunch, not that any of us managed to pick it. From the giddy heights of last week’s winning score of 16 points this week’s 3 joint winners could only manage 9 and the alphabet has been heavily deployed to keep us apart.
Again, if you’d like to see where it all went right or wrong here are your detailed Premiership predictions;
The good news is that the opportunity to make amends is already upon us. We have a proper weekend of Premiership football arriving faster than a Torres goal. So don’t delay a second and make sure that you upload your new forecasts into our rather nifty online form here. (Just remember you need to enter your name and list your scores with a ‘v’ – e.g. 2 v 1, 3 v 0, etc).
Happy punditry to all.
It seems genuinely pointless focussing on our weekend’s football predictions when one of the players involved is fighting for his life in hospital. As a mark of respect we’re deferring the publication of the tables until Thursday morning when we will also be collecting your predictions for next weekend. It would be nice to think that by then there might be something else to celebrate and that Muamba makes a full recovery.
Another remarkable weekend of Premiership football. The Springtime weather and recent alarm about water shortages conspired to produce a goal drought of Sudanesque proportions. The basket ball scores of recent weeks dropped to a tide of 1-0′s. All the more remarkable then that one of us predicted no less than 5 correct scores and an additional correct result to set an AMNT record 16 points. As you’ll see from the tables no one else got close and some of you most clearly lost your trousers. It’s a cruel game.
A good job we only have to wait a short time to repair the damage. To sharpen your appetites we’re introducing a rather more sophisticated way of collecting your predictions – though if you still prefer e-mail don’t worry. More about this later in the week. And if you didn’t manage to play this weekend for any reason I hope you don’t repeat the mistake.

The twists and turns of this remarkable season get better each week – and the football wasn’t bad either – unless you happened to be Portuguese. To add to the joys of predicting the results and scores each week we now have our very own blog. Every Monday we’ll be posting the results and updated tables here. To receive them all you need to do is to sign up for the e-mail updates in the box on the right hand side. Couldn’t be simpler.
This week’s bragging rights go to Roger Stone who managed 3 perfect scores and 3 correct results. Whereas Alan Hodge is currently looking for his trousers having failed to trouble the scorers. To see how you compared you’ll find the full breakdown here - AMNT WEEK 4 Results Detail
Statto has also been busy updating the tables for this week so if you’d like to see where you came you’ll find all the relevant information here - AMNT4
