Nothing Says Working Week like UK Midweek Football and our EPL Matchday 17 Predictions and here is our quickest effort yet.
A FEW OUR OF FAVOURITE THINGS FOR THE EPL MATCHDAY 17 PREDICTIONS AHEAD
FTA GAME in AUSTRALIA – SPURS v BRIGHTON
(6:30am / 5:30am) SBS TV)
GURGLER’S EPL TIPPING COMPETITION
Each week we will put our tips up against an opponent, just like Lawro’s tips on the BBC Football website. But instead of having famous comedian and musicians we’ve never heard of, we put our tips up against a different type of opponent.
We determine tips based on some ridiculous premise or statistic, and we then see if arse truly does beat class.
This week’s opponent tips are based on the unemployment rate of each city, given it is what we might face if caught watching too much EPL.
