Lawro Audit: FA Cup Special 2

[Get Exclusive Tips on our Patreon, Ad-Free

It’s another FA Cup weekend, which, to be honest, doesn’t bothered me too much. The value of the FA Cup has long diminished, with the fact that you can never tell who’s going to be playing for any side right up until the kick-off a real problem. I mean, seriously, when there’s talk of Burnley putting out a weakened side to concentrate on their promotion charge, it becomes a bit boring. In fact, I’m sure Arsenal only started fielding a really strong side in the very last stages of last year’s FA Cup. Still, what is important here is that Mark Lawrenson is doing predictions for this weekend’s FA Cup fixtures. Now, we have missed the kick off for the Derby vs Manchester United, but he got the prediction wrong, anyway, so you know what, we’re going to count it towards his total. It’s nice sometimes to take a break from the English Premiership action, anyway, so let’s at least take a chance to look at some sides we don’t pay too much attention to from the lower divisions. Maybe Colchester will cause the upset of the round, or maybe Oxford can continue their FA Cup journey. Whatever happens, there is likely to be at least one story coming out of this weekend’s FA Cup fixtures.

And just because this is an FA Cup week, it doesn’t mean that we’re going to let Lawro off the hook when it comes to his predictions. Yes, how did Mark Lawrenson got on last week with his predictions for the English Premiship? In a word – shockingly. Seriously, Lawro managed to get 2 results correct and no correct scores. It was a poor showing from the so-called expert. In fact, he even got the Liverpool result wrong. Yes, for a man who tips Liverpool to win almost every week, he went for a draw, and Liverpool actually won. Lawro managed to correctly predict wins for Tottenham and Leicester… and that was it. He didn’t even get one of the correct scores. So, yeah, not a great week for the so-called prediction legend that is Mark Lawrenson, eh? And where does that leave us in terms of profit and loss? Well, he lost -15.8 units last week, which is just a bit too much of a crippling loss. That takes our loss for the season to -70.82 units Ugh, it’s not looking good, is it? But, hey, because it’s FA Cup weekend, Lawro has a plethora of games to get some correct scores and some big money. If he doesn’t, he might have to rethink his careers as a legendary prediction marker.
