PM fancies Spurs to beat Saints

Daily Echo: David Cameron David Cameron

PRIME Minister David Cameron reckons Saints will lose 1-0 to Spurs this weekend.

Predicting the weekend’s Premier League results for this weekend’s Football Focus programme on BBC 1, the PM fancies managerless Tottenham to have too much for Mauricio Pochettino’s Saints.

The Prime Minister backed Hull to win on Saturday because the city has a rivalry with Scunthorpe, where his wife Samantha’s family pile is based, and he wanted to “extend the hand of friendship”.

West Ham were tipped to beat Manchester United because vice chairman Karren Brady is helping the PM “bat for British business” while Norwich won support because Mr Cameron is a fan of majority shareholder Delia Smith’s “brilliant” cookbooks.

Cameron made the predictions during filming in Camp Bastion, Afghan-istan, for a special episode of Football Focus following the launch a new UK-Afghan football partnership to boost the game by developing the league system.

Running through the fixture list for the next few days, he said: “Ooo, I like West Ham so why don’t we go West Ham 2, Manchester United 1.”

When it came to Sunderland against Norwich, he said: “I quite like Norwich, bit of a Delia Smith fan, so let’s give this one to Norwich.”

Next on the list was West Bromwich Albion against Hull, to which he replied: “My wife is from Scunthorpe, they don’t like Hull very much but we’ll try and extend the hand of friendship and we’ll go for Hull 1-0.”

Cameron, an Aston Villa fan, said his team would win 2-0 against Stoke.

Football Focus will be broadcast tomorrow at noon.

The predictions: Liverpool 2 Cardiff 0, Crystal Palace 1 Newcastle United 2, Fulham 0 Man City 3, Man United 1 West Ham 2, Stoke 0 Aston Villa 2, Sunderland 0 Norwich 2, West Brom 0 Hull 1, SAINTS 0 Spurs 1, Swansea 3 Everton 0, Arsenal 1 Chelsea 2.

Not at all politically astute for a Prime Minister! Some people might say he is a to$$er, but I would leave out the $$'s in favour of something else because he is already more than rather well off! Lol! I haven't got any politics anyway, so lend us a quid or few, Dave! I'm an honest man like you are, Dave, and you have kept all your election promises (as if), so you'll definitely get your money back!

Which Saints fans should make the Top 100 list this year? Somehow Mayuka did last season. I reckon we have a decent case for Shaw, Lovren, Clyne and Schneiderlin.

Cpt. Kirk's illegitimate love child says...

Cameron is such a woman. That is the way my wife, who knows nothing about football, would place bets. She once said, "Oh, I like Tottingham because that man with long hair plays for them doesn't he?" Hang on, that probably means she knows more than Cameron! Anyone ever noticed how whenever he is trying to ingratiate himself with us plebs (which is a lot) he keeps saying, "I want such and such," but rarely, "I am going to." When he says, "I want this" what he really means is "look, I'm a nice bloke really soupy should like me even though I have absolutely no intention of doing this." Confidence trickster.

I chuffing hate the Tories, but this was obviously done tongue in cheek, trying to raise a bit of awareness for this Afghan football project (which worked, as let's face it - who of us had heard of it before?), and he's not trying to pretend he's a football fan. If you asked a footballer what he would do in the next budget, I'm fairly sure the results would be laughable - anyone else remember David Beckham's comments when asked about world peace? - so we shouldn't expect much from Cameron here.

Now, if you want to rail at Cameron for deciding to deal with an international financial crisis by supporting the people who created that crisis and making the people who suffer the most from it pay the most to resolve it, then I'm happy to dust off my old red banners and join you on the march - but let's take this article in the light in which it deserves to be taken.

And let's also hope that he gets a higher score than Lawrenson, that would be good - like Cleetus the idiot in the Simpsons being beaten by a chicken at Tic Tac Toe...

What no one seems to have noticed is that the "troops" have gone 1-3 to Spurs, although that can possibly be excused on the basis that the average squaddie IQ is close to single figures.

What is far worse is that Lawrenson has gone for a Saints win for the second time in a week. What's the matter with the bloke? Please go back to saying we'll always lose so that we can start winning again.

Agreed. Osborne is a complete fucktard. Even though CaMoron is a totally incompetent fool, he does have an element of a humanitarian soul in there somewhere. Osborne doesn't.

Have been given a green card to wander over to my old haunts in Edinburgh for the match, if only because Mrs Monster is taking the lad to a panto :-)

3-1 Saints... also, I'd go for a 0-0 at Stoke.

Ok, fair point, I can see where you are coming from there.
Mind you, the same could previously be said of some other youngsters, until they got game time!

Mind you, if I had realised that one of Cameron's election manifesto promises was to do Lawro out of a job, I might just have considered voting for him.

I totally agree with the basis of your thinking here, however, I honestly feel that the players in front of him have played their part in the volume of goals conceded.
An example of this would be the Villa game, where he was twice dropped in it by the defence. Without their mistakes, even with his inexperience, we'd have won it! (he was in goal in the 4-1 win over them last season).
Injuries and mistakes have been more to blame than Gazzaniga, in my personal opinion. Ironically though, injuries are also the reason he's playing at the moment.

good to see that some people will use any chance to spout their political views and have go at the PM for being a bit well off (not as well off as big smile blair) or for cosying up to bankers whilst blairs off advising absolute monarchs, wealthy bankers and despots (aren't labour supposed to hate them?) and earning millions a year while still taking £100k+ a year from the taxpayer and sitting on a £30mill+ personal fortune, brothers unite!!
politics and sport should never mix!
if they did mix we could have ended up with the previous 2 PMs selling half the countries gold at the lowest price in years to bale poopey out, or taking the English cricket and football teams to Iraq to fight an illegal war!

as I say sport and politics should never mix or these saints forums wouldnt be about our great team anymore.

Politics and sport should never mix? but it always has done and always will ...
Hitler snubbed a black Jesse Owen gold medallist in 1936 Olympics.
Hicksville USA snubbed a young Cassius Clay gold medal boxer in 1960.
USA and Russia snubbed each other’s Olympics in 1980 and 1984.
Maggie Thatcher (Seedhouse’s 1st true love) snubbed our great game of football in the 1980’s, touting ideas of membership and that all football fans were sub-human thugs. They also sold our school sports fields for cash.
1995, at last a positive, Nelson Mandela unites a country in a Springboks shirt awarding the trophy to a white captain Francois Pienaar.
All of the 21st century the Taxman has been hounding and destroying the cheating poopey skunts.

To summarise, politics in sport can be good and bad. Here in Australia, we treat all the Pollies with the same disdain as in the UK. The only places it is not taken for granted is in the dictatorships where the poor pesants do not have the true right to vote. Politics and sport should never mix?

Hitler snubbed a black Jesse Owen gold medallist in 1936 Olympics. Hicksville USA snubbed a young Cassius Clay gold medal boxer in 1960. USA and Russia snubbed each other’s Olympics in 1980 and 1984. Maggie Thatcher (Seedhouse’s 1st true love) snubbed our great game of football in the 1980’s, touting ideas of membership and that all football fans were sub-human thugs. They also sold our school sports fields for cash. 1995, at last a positive, Nelson Mandela unites a country in a Springboks shirt awarding the trophy to a white captain Francois Pienaar. All of the 21st century the Taxman has been hounding and destroying the cheating poopey skunts. To summarise, politics in sport can be good and bad.

when the chance arises, it the way of things, once you get your chance your have to shine.
that cannot be said of Gazza and the score sheet proves the point i,m afraid.
I totally agree with the basis of your thinking here, however, I honestly feel that the players in front of him have played their part in the volume of goals conceded.
An example of this would be the Villa game, where he was twice dropped in it by the defence. Without their mistakes, even with his inexperience, we'd have won it! (he was in goal in the 4-1 win over them last season).
Injuries and mistakes have been more to blame than Gazzaniga, in my personal opinion. Ironically though, injuries are also the reason he's playing at the moment.
i have to agree with you, on this point, but i still believe we need a little more depth in this department. but over all i,m on cloud Nine as far as the MIGHTY SAINTS have preformed this season, and its great to rub the SKUNTS noses in it COYR

Gazza's displays have got nothing to do with the defence in front of him, he looks off the pace and isn't getting the basics right. Watch Aguero's goal, although poor defending Gazza was flat footed and slow to react, can't help thinking Boruc would have saved that, and at least one of the goals at Chelsea. Agree that he needs game time to develop, and as long as he's a Saints player we should back him, but not at the expense of our first team results. When young players have potential but are not ready for PL standard then arrange a loan period so he can get match experience
