Premier Showdown - Oct 28/29

Tommy Smyth and Dale Johnson shared the spoils last weekend, meaning the Rest of the World have now gone some time without picking up any points. Can they change that in our next round?

We're heading over to Canada for midweek Showdown. Joining us is Ashley Manton.

Ashley reveals: 'I am a Chelsea fan from the early 1960s living in Toronto, Canada. I am married to a Canadian girl who I have converted to the Blue side Now if i could only get those kids of mine to stop watching the Maple Leafs. I love to watch Arsenal lose so I can see Wegner choke on those SOUR GRAPES that he seems to have an abundance of.'

It seems like it's sour hour. Let's play!

Soccernet's Premier League Editor, Dale Johnson, and ESPNsoccernet Press Pass pundit Tommy Smyth take up the test.

They, along with the challenger, cast their eyes over weekend's top flight fixtures in England and predict how they think each game will turn out.

Points are then awarded as follows:
• Three points for a correct result and scoreline
• One point for a correct result

After the weekend's scores are in and the result has been worked out, the winning pundit receives three points for their season's total. Should the challenger win, the total is added to the 'Rest of the World's' tally. In the case of a draw, the points are shared between those level on points.
