English Football Midweek Picks (January 2-4)

Seriously, I was so annoyed on Saturday as every pick I made seemed to get close to succeeding and then falling over.
Here is a recap of some of the crazy crap that afflicted me:

Andy Carroll hits the bar from 4 yards out and misses at least two other chances that he should have gobbled up.

Bolton and Wolves share 2 goals in the first 50 odd minutes and then proceed to hit the woodwork and both team miss glorious chances to score the goal that would have taken the game over.

Norwich and Fulham sees the first goal go in after 7 minutes, only then to see each keeper make big saves before a second finally hits the back of the net in the 94th minute.

Arsenal win 1-0 as Theo Walcott decides to miss a chance when he is through on goal with the keeper to beat, while Gervinho somehow diverts the ball wide from 3 yards out from just inside the middle of the goal.

Manchester United and Manchester City lose to teams that were priced at 28-1 and 13-1.

Tottenham looked like getting lucky by winning at Swansea but concede thanks to a Brad Friedal error in the last 6 minutes and fail to grab the points.

I am truly hoping that the New Year brings a change of fortunes because the last couple of gameweeks in 2011 saw about a hundred draws, while the favourites consistently failed to win games (Arsenal, Manchester United, Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester City and Tottenham have all failed to win at least 1 of their last 2 games, in some cases failing to win either).
