BBC Pundit Mark Lawrenson has started the new year as he finished the old one by predicting a West Ham defeat against Wolves in the FA Cup.
Lawro wrote in his BBC column “I also have a feeling that West Ham might slip up against Wolves, who were struggling until recently but have won three in a row since Christmas.”
Lawrenson has predicted 13 Premier League losses for West Ham in his column this season and just two wins.
West Ham’s official twitter were quick to reply last night saying “LAWRO: We are sure you are all as surprised as we were that Lawro has predicted West Ham will lose on Saturday!”
This morning David Gold added his comments on the subject by adding “I’m not a fan of Mark Lawrenson and I’m please that Alan Hanson has retired. (dinosaurs) can’t forgive for his pompous comments on MOTD. dg”
At the beginning of the season Lawro wrote “West Ham are going to finish down towards the bottom of the league, they’re not a particularly good team”
