Mark Lawrenson and his big crystal balls 3

He gave us the 'kiss of death' against Spurs on his BBC predictions page after predicting a Pompey win, he was right with his prediction of a Liverpool win, now after a few games without seeing what he said - and probably not even caring if I am honest! - he is tipping a draw with Ipswich this weekend in the cup, he predicts:

I have a feeling this could be a really good game as Ipswich's home form is tremendous and Portsmouth's away form is similarly good.

I'm intrigued to see how Ipswich will cope when faced with higher quality opposition but I suspect they can force a replay against Harry Redknapp's side.

Verdict: 1-1.

erm actually rug as a confirmed Lawro follower and him being a big influence on my confidence about my weekly 10 bet i can tell you from the state of my account, apart from December 07 when he blindly put us down to win more often than not what Lawro says.. it is

I'm not sure we want a replay. I think we'll nick it by an odd goal. Odd as in 1-0 or 2-1. Not odd as in off the refs arse.

Lawro eh... still has the job I want - Talk about football all the time, predict the scores, don't get sacked no matter how wrong you are and get paid for it ... Whatever did he do to deserve it .. I'm going for a 3-1 Pompey win.. We'll go 2-1 ahead and as Ipswich pile forward to try and force a draw and manitain their home record Kanu will sprint down the middle rounding three players as he goes, dummy the keeper then unselfishly square the ball to Nugent to score ...

Lawro is a idiot, he doesnt understand the game! How can he predict 1-1s and teams sneaking wins, with a feeling, he always predicts us to win the games we lose, and lose the games we win, he doesnt have a clue, plus the fact that he is biased towards liverpool, Sky Sports should have a MOTD, with jeff as the anchor, with mers, phil, paul walsh, and alan mcanally in, that would be far better, and alot more unbias.

how can anybody say that scholes goal was better than taylors goal - particually when similar goals had been scorred almost every week. taylors goal was special, and for it not to have even been goal of the month is a travisity!

Russ - I've love Nugent to start and had hope he would be with Harry holding back Utaka and Kanu until Sunday I just can't see it .. shame really as it'll do his confidence no end of good if he got a start and scored against a team he has always scored against..
