Back to the nitty gritty of the Premier League after the brilliance of them Spaniels. This game will probably be just as tough but for a totally different reason. My infallible predicting code gives us an 80% probability of winning this, 14% the draw and Cardiff get just 6%, so, this will be tricky as fuck just to prove my coding and stats skills are bollocks.
Cardiff have lost their last 4, but 2 of those losses were to top teams - the Chavs and City, OK they lost to the goons and Burnley, but we shouldn't get too cocky about those results. I would have a little wager on us winning this 4-1, Harry Kane to get a hat-trick and lead the PL goalscorer list - he's only one behind Hazard so maybe he isn't as rusty as some folks think. Oh yes a little flutter would be nice if Mrs D would allow me the simple pleasure of a little wager, but like Basil Fawlty:
Sybil Dorset: No, Basil doesn't bet anymore. Do you, dear?
Basil Dorset: No, I don't, dear, no. No, that particular avenue of pleasure has been closed off.
Only joking! I am the boss of me in my house. I do what I want when she tells me to do it.
