“ Mark Lawrenson’s prediction for Saturday “

Mark Lawrenson is making predictions for all 380 top-flight matches this season, against a variety of guests.

His first guest for the 2018-19 campaign is Inbetweeners actor Joe Thomas.


Lawro’s Prediction

His team's survival is probably the only aim for Cardiff manager Neil Warnock this season and he has bought in some interesting players to try to achieve it.

A lot of them are from the Championship, including Preston left-back Greg Cunningham, Bristol City striker Bobby Reid and Norwich winger Josh Murphy, and Warnock has been very clever there.

Between them, they have not played much in the Premier League, if at all, but they will have something to prove.

And although I think Cardiff will struggle, if they end up going down then they will have a very good team at that level.

This is Bournemouth's fourth season in the top flight, and they have just spent big by their standards by bringing in Colombia midfielder Jefferson Lerma for £25m.

Last year, the Cherries had to wait until the middle of September to get their first win, but it never felt like they panicked.

You know what style of football you are getting from Eddie Howe's side, but it is the same with Warnock's teams and I think they will scrap their way to a point on Saturday.

1-1.


Joe’s Prediction: Bournemouth can be a bit shaky at the back sometimes and I actually think Cardiff could sneak this one. They need to do well in their first few fixtures, and I am backing them to make a winning start. 1-2

I'd take either result right now. :thumbright: :old:
Edmund: Have you ever been to Wales, Baldrick?
Baldrick: No, but I've often thought that I'd like to.
Edmund: Well don't. It's a ghastly place. Huge gangs of tough, sinewy men roam the valleys terrifying people with their close-harmony singing

You're right, he never has us down for anything other than a loss !! A draw would be a great result, a win just couldn't happen .................... could it :roll: :? ;)

To fair he would have been correct 31 out of 38 times. That's not bad when trying to predict football results.

Newley promoted sides often carry forward the winning positive attitude from the previous season, therefore having their best few months of results. They then often fall away while other teams suss out how to beat them and injuries kick.

He knows we will be positive and up for it and may catch Bournemouth cold so he has simply gone with common sense, he probably won't be backing us to win for too long and normal service will resume !!!

This first 8 games will shape our season, we need to be getting as many points in the bag as possible and try and avoid ever getting in the bottom three, because when you fall in it becomes difficult to get out!

I thought he didn't predict us to win a single game either but apparently he did (West Ham at home), but he did think we'd only total 14 points in the entire season
