As a rough guide I used last season’s number of points as a pointer and Arsenal finished in fourth with 68 points. So my question was, with United at that time standing on 36 points, whether it was possible for Newcastle to pick up 32 points from their final 16 matches?
The answer was yes!
I went through each match and my predictions (surprise surprise!) came out at exactly 32 points.
The good news is that using my scientific system, Newcastle united are currently still on track!
The team had gone two points ahead of schedule when I predicted a draw at Blackburn but we got a fortunate win.
Saturday’s draw with Wolves has evened that out so with twelve matches to go Newcastle are still on track for the 68 points…using my prediction-omator.
Blackburn (A) – DRAW, Aston Villa (H) – WIN, Spurs (A) – DEFEAT, Wolves (H) – WIN
Mackems (H) – WIN, Arsenal (A) – DRAW, Norwich City (H) – WIN, WBA (A) – DRAW
Liverpool (H) – WIN, Swansea (A) – DRAW, Bolton (H) – WIN, Chelsea (A) – DEFEAT
Stoke City (H) – WIN, Wigan (A) – WIN, Man. City (H) – DRAW, Everton (A) – WIN
