During the US Election the majority of the press were firmly rooting for and forecasting a runaway Hilary Clinton victory. When the results finally revealed a Trump victory the same media had to report on them and they did so through gritted teeth while pointing an accusing finger at anyone they could instead of accepting that they got it wrong.
I fee much the same as the onus falls to me to provide an update on the status of the Lawro Challenge. Here then is this weeks official release and below that this week’s predictions. The run of bad luck and freak results cannot continue and I can only see a steady closing of the gap.
Fourteen rounds of games in the Premier League have now been completed. That means we have now predicted the results of 140 matches. In Week 14, Rich scored 12 points, Geoff 4 points, and Lawro 11 points. In this challenge we award one point for a correct result, and a further two points (making three in total) if the score prediction is spot on.
