Epic fail by Mark Lawenson

lawroBBC pundit Mark Lawenson is at it again predicting his seventh loss of the season for the Hammers.

Lawro told the BBC Sport website

“Every time I think Watford are about to get sucked into the relegation fight, they come up with a big result  like last week’s win at Stoke, generally away from home.

West Ham also had an impressive win – yes they were at home but  they were up against Chelsea and had to show great resolve in a game I thought they would lose.

The Hammers have claimed a few scalps on the road this season but I would argue that was as good as any of their previous results. On the face of it, their away form makes them favourites at Vicarage Road but Watford do not look like a side that has just been promoted and they might surprise a few more people this weekend.

After beating the Blues, Hammers boss Slaven Bilic said he had not set up his team as if they were at home and I think the Hornets will do the same. Watford will not be easy to break down and will do what it takes to get a win.  Lawro’s prediction: 2-0″

As the graphic above from www.myfootballfacts.com shows Lawro is way out of touch, West Ham would be in 18th place with 5 points in a relegation scrap if all his woeful predictions had come true this season.

  1. I love that even MOTD are now laughing at him 😀


  2. The man’s a grade ‘A’, five star, gold plated tool. But at least his stupidity is openly published so we can all share in the joke.

  3. Lol,what a surprise he hasnt picked Watford for a win all season until it comes to playing us.Geezers a plum,end of story.

  4. If anyone else was this bad at their job they would be on there way,
    Not interested any more he is a praaat who now will keep putting us down to loose every week and sit in the corner playing with himself thinking he is funny,

  5. Is he working on the “even a broken clock is right twice a day” theory and if he keeps having us to lose we are sure to at some point in the remainder of the season? This man is a moron of the highest order and I seriously fail to see how he is still in a job what with him being a complete laughing stock.

  6. “last weeks win at Stoke, generally away from home” ?
    It usually is unless you’re Stoke

  7. Proper chump. Someone pays him? I thought he did it for a laugh.

  8. Well law of averages dictates that even this fool has to get one right sooner or later. Pundit? Wage thief more like.

  9. He is a complete fool. He is proper sulking because of the way we swept Liverpool aside at Anfield….

  10. Delusions of grandeur like most of them ,
    We can label Brady under that one as well ,
    This Muppet was carried for years by Hanson .
    Hopefully the team will put him in his place !! Again !!!!!!

  11. Really couldnt give a flying fig what Lawremson thinks.He is a dinosaur slowly being phased out by the BBC.He has had his day.Will soon be writing little articles for Womans Own because he knows f#ck all about modern day football.Leave that to Neville,Carragher & the younger breed of pundits.Him & his mullet are history 😉

  12. Oh Oh Oh Who has the last laugh NOW?
