Here’s a look at the weekend’s Premier League card and how it could effect Tottenham Hotspur Football Club. This week the bulk of the fixtures are as appetising as the Chick King on Tottenham High Road is to a xenophobic vegan.

Southampton versus Chelsea is a great opportunity to puttee Saints out of their misery. They are so desperate for the points, even a point, and they aren’t going to get any joy here. The demoralising truth is that they’ve not beaten the Blues since 2015, and that wasn’t whilst they were languishing at the foot of the division. Away win.

Burnley entertain Leicester and this is as close to a meaningless game as you’ll find. Burnley went off the boil for a while there and drifted, but are unbeaten in their last 5. Trouble is, everyone above them is now out of reach and even if they finish strongly, there’s a fixed limit upon what they might achieve. City continue to bumble about to little good purpose and have to be one of the most unpredictable sides in the league. I suggest you exercise caution and leave this one out of you accumulator.

Palace play Brighton and this is another tough one to call based upon neither side exuding much in the way of character. Crystal Palace desperately need points to keep out harm’s way but are they capable, even at home? Home win. But only just.

Huddersfield versus Watford is another glamour tie. Huddersfield are ripe candidates for a last minute relegation scare and they are unlikely to see many chances as fair as this to grab a win. Both sides ins poor form but nevertheless, a Home win.

Swansea host Everton which also may not be one for the purists. Everyone are 9th says a lot more about the muck bobbing around – like abandoned fizzy pop cans in a park pond – beneath them. Swansea have pulled their socks up and now won’t get relegated, but that wasn’t certain a few weeks ago. I’m unconvinced that Everton merit much praise. Draw.

Liverpool host Bournemouth and one has to wonder if the Champions League has depleted the Scousers energy levels. I hope it has. It will have needed to as Bournemouth’s form is pretty abject. One win in six and that was against mighty West Brom.

I had occasion to go to West Bromwich this week and the area generally and specifically around the stadium were desperate. Think Haringey, but with less glamorous amenities. A 26,850 capacity stadium and not a local business benefiting to be seen. Maybe they just need some £2,000 seats and a Cheese Room, that must be it. Or a walkway. 

Liverpool should be too much for the Cherries but I’m thinking about a Draw.

We play Man City and at 1945hrs on a Saturday night. Is this a stupid, in fact abhorrent bit of scheduling? Yes, it is. I fancy us to win 2-0 and so Home win.

If you placed £5,00 on these punts, you could lose £5,00.

A less likely outcome is that you’ll trouser £2, 548.62.

    Former UK Ambassador to Syria: Douma Chemical Attack is staged

    • Caveman April 14, 2018 at 11:00 am

      Yep 100%

    • Freund or Foe April 14, 2018 at 11:17 am

      Former UK Ambassador Peter Ford? Director of lobby group British Syrian Society, which is run by Assad’s Father-in-Law, Fawaz Akhras?
      I’m surprised he has that opinion.

      • Sexy Beast April 14, 2018 at 11:28 am

        Therefore his opinion is worthless? Why in Gods name would Assad Chem attack his own people when it is obvious what would happen? makes no sense to me.
        Trump is now looking totally compromised, the Millitary Industrial Complex runs the show and the last President who stood up to them? JFK!

        • Harry Hotspur April 14, 2018 at 11:34 am

          Why would Assad use chemicals when he’s pretty much won?

          The US military announced 10 days ago that they were preparing for dealing with Assad in the future.

          The whole thing is a stunt.

        • Freund or Foe April 14, 2018 at 11:38 am

          Therefore his opinion is biased. You used the “former UK Ambassador” to give the argument some poignancy, but his opinion obviously isn’t based on his position as ex UK Ambassador, it’s based on being director of a controversial group:

          Last year Mr Ford wrongly blamed opposition forces for an attack on a UN aid convoy when an investigation proved it was either Russian or Syrian Government aircraft.

          The British Syrian Society’s accounts do not show whether Mr Forde receives any payment or remuneration for his role.

          However, the society has been mired in controversy in recent years over its role in providing support for President Assad, with a string of senior British figures resigning from its board.

          It was accused last year of running a propaganda event in Damascus which was supported by Syrian government officials.

          In 2012 Sir Andrew Green, another former British ambassador to Syria and then co-chairman of the society, quit after emails showed Dr Akhras had advised Assad on how to rebut evidence of civilians apparently being tortured.

          Dr Akhras used a private email channel to the Syrian leader to offer advice on how the regime should handle criticism of its suppression of the opposition uprising, including how to counter video footage appearing to show the torture of children.

          Other resignations included the society’s treasurer, Brian Constant and Sir Gavyn Arthur, a former Lord Mayor of London.

          Sir Andrew said at the time: “This is all very sad. The BSS has done a lot of useful work but it’s very hard to see how it can continue. In the light of the recent revelations, the five British board members have decided to resign.”

          In an earlier blow to the BSS, in September 2011, the HSBC bank said it would no longer represent the society.

          Dr Akhras, a Harley street cardiologist who divides his time between London and Damascus, faced embarrassment over the 2012 leaked emails, which showed he was advising President Assad on how to handle the Syrian crisis.

          The emails also appeared to showed that at the same time as violence raged across the country, his daughter Asma was shopping online for luxury goods, including art, furnishings and jewellery.

          You keep on coming up with these “why would that happen” arguments, which offer little to back up your stance.

          • Sexy Beast April 14, 2018 at 11:55 am

            Did you watch the video that Melcyid posted the other day about a woman Journo who was in and out of Syria a lot? Now i am not suggesting that Peter Ford’s words should be added to the scriptures nor that woman journo but i for one am prepared to listen to alternative views rather then take the words of CUNTS LIKE THE OLD HAG MAY who by the way will be 100ft under ground when you and i are frazzeled or even worse survive a nuclear war.
            Assad had and has virtually beaten the rebels, ISIS who were backed by the Saudi’s and Qatar who were armed by HITLERY, FACT! Also obviously helped massivley by Putin and his millitary.
            As the Romans used to ask when a murder has taken one of the top senators “who stands to gain the most”?
            Well it certainly is not Assad……….

            • Mad Carew April 14, 2018 at 12:04 pm

              The Woman Journo based some of her assumptions on Grafitti, hope the US Intel is better sourced.

                • Sexy Beast April 14, 2018 at 12:16 pm

                  Yeah, why listen to an independent jouno who seems to know what she is talking about? She mentioned in the vid that she has seen he usual ISIS graffiti on walls with her own eyes, but that is fake news to you Raz?

            • Freund or Foe April 14, 2018 at 12:17 pm

              Assad was targeting this area, going after the last remaining rebel group Jaysh al-Islam, who unlike the other rebel groups that retreated to the north, refused to move out of Douma. The area has been under attack since February, when negotiations between Jaysh al-Islam and the government stalled, and air strikes resumed.
              What has Assad ever had to gain from chemical attacks? Are you saying that all 73 reported chemical weapons attacks by Syria, many being verified by the UN and the OPCW, have all been staged by the Western world in some attempt to prove that he is a very nasty man?

              • Sexy Beast April 14, 2018 at 12:26 pm

                The argument right now is not has Assad ever used chem weapons, i don’t know but what i do know is that what ever happened the other day we simply do not know who carried it out. Obviously i don’t trust the govornments to tell me the truth when we all know for a FACT that our govornments lie to us constantly.
                It is obvious that 911 was some sort of bullshit psy-op that led to what? The carnage that is the middle east right now, wars that have cost Trillions and who benefitted the most?? The Millitary Industrial Complex……

                  Just watched the Vanessa Beeley interview.

                  It’s very plausible. She’s on the ground and has local dirt under her nails. As she says, there are people writing yards of material on this and they’ve never even been there.
