Week 9 results - The Grambler is turning into a cult


Well what can we say about The Grambler’s predictions for last Saturday that hasn’t been said before?  Absolutely brilliant.  That hasn’t been said.  And do you want to know why it hasn’t been said.  Because it wasn’t absolutely brilliant; it was absolute sh*t*!  One out of five!  That is all The Grambler got right.  And do you know how much that won for The Grambler’s Kick Cancer’s Arse Fund.  Nothing!  Not a bean!  In short – FU...[Now cut that out – Ed].

Sorry.

Let’s take a look at how things panned out shall we…

Fulham vs Manchester United – Prediction - Home win NAW

The Grambler predicted that Fulham would beat Manchester United – Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha – I could go on.  Ahem.  Fulham did not beat Man Utd.  Manchester United stuffed Fulham 3-1.  Though, to be fair, Fulham did score a goal, so they can’t have been totally useless.  Just mostly useless….bunch of bloody pensioners…moan, moan, moan.

Fulham manager, Martin Jol says he is not worried about being sacked.  Well, actually Martin as I write this, you haven’t actually been sacked, actually.  Maybe you know something we don’t?  Actually.

Bristol City vs Oldham Athletic – Prediction – Home win      NAWWW

This ended up as a 1 all draw.  Bristol City what are you doing to us?  You won last week.  You won last night.  You just couldn’t win when it mattered – ie. when The Grambler predicted you would win.  It might have happened.  The Robins went ahead on 36 minutes with an ‘acrobatic volley’ from Jay Emmanuel-Thomas – the quotation marks are mine, the description is by some twat at the bbc.  Acrobatic volley indeed.  They hung on for umm… 41 minutes (77-36=41. Yeah that’s right.  Not good at sums) when James Dayton scored for the Latics on 77 minutes.  Swine.

Coventry vs Notts County – Prediction – Home win                yay (sort of)

Yep this is the one and only game that The Grambler got right.  Coventry won this one 3 nil.  We have to thank Notts County’s Danny Haynes for helping The Grambler big time by getting sent off on 41 minutes when the score was nil nil.

Bury vs Torquay United – Prediction – Home win               NAWWWWWWWWWW

The Grambler had this down as a win for the Shakers, but it went the way of Torquay who won 3-1.  I bet Bury were shaken.  Eh?  I’m doing me best!  Let’s hear Torquay manager, Alan Knill (pronounced nil as in Torquay nil) on his team, "It's an outstanding away performance and thoroughly deserved. We set up really well, worked really hard on set-plays and I thought we were good value for the win today.  When we needed to defend today we really did - we put bodies in the way and did everything we possibly could to stop them from scoring. We changed the team because we thought we could use Elliot [Benyon]'s attributes to stretch the opposition and he did, just when they were in the ascendency and thinking they were getting back into the game."

Have fun counting the clich├ęs.

Inverness Caledonian Thistle vs Kilmarnock – Prediction – Draw NAWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW

And finally, Cyril?  And finally Esther The Grambler predicted that Caley and Killie (What a great name for a double act) would draw.  It was a possibility given that Caley had not won for a while and Killie had just begun winning.  Instead, Inverness got back into winning ways and beat Kilmarnock 2-1.

Oh well, that’s the gramble over for this week.  Once again, no winnings are available to add to The Grambler’s Kick Cancer’s Arse Fund.  But are we downhearted?  No! Will we be back next week for more grambling?  You betcha!  Will The Grambler predict five winners?  Doubt it.

I am pleased to finish by telling all you fellow gramblers out there that there are over a hundred of us.  Yep, that’s how many readers have been checking in each week.  Remember everyone out there in Gramblerland, tell all your mates to get grambling too.  Let’s make The Grambler an even bigger cult [you said it, not me – Ed].
