Lawro predicts Spurs draw at Leeds


BBC football pundit Mark Lawrenson has predicted that Spurs will only manage a draw on Sunday in the FA Cup fourth round clash at Leeds United.

Last time out, Lawro correctly predicted that we would draw against Manchester United last weekend. Let’s hope that he is wrong with this weekend’s prediction, at this stage of the season the last thing we need is to cram in another match into an already hectic fixture calendar.

Lawro told BBC Sport Online: ” A few months ago I would have looked at this game and thought that Tottenham might not fancy it too much but they are made of sterner stuff now, and have got some strong characters.

“I don’t know what team Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas will pick, but if it includes Gareth Bale and Aaron Lennon then you would have to fancy them big style.

“But Leeds have had some decent results in the Cup in the last couple of years, beating Manchester United at Old Trafford in 2010 and taking Arsenal to a replay last season, so I would back them to take this tie to White Hart Lane.

“Lawro’s prediction: 1-1 (Tottenham to win the replay).”

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Has Lawro ever predicted anything positive from Spurs?! No, I thought not. Well, in fairness I have nothing positive to say about those shocking shirts he likes so much. The ones with the Harry Hill collars for all his comedy. Spurs win all the way

  2. Does anyone care what Lawrenson thinks? He played in a truly great team which made him look better than he was, and this mediocre ability has continued into his work as a pundit. Banal, vacuous and no real knowledge as his recent gaffe on QoS highlighted.

  3. You should win with your class of players.

    I predict 4-1 to spurs.

    As a leeds fan since 1969 , I be seen plenty of tv pundits!

    Lawro talks shite most of te time.

    Like you spurs fans, one likes to win.

    A draw is good for nobody.

    So ya better win, I got 20 quid on ya .

    Spurs are like us in ways, you look like ya gonna do something,

    but when it comes to the nitty gritty bit, we fuck up.

    You too have manager who makes some strange tactical moves.

    Good luck anyway, may the best team on the day get a result !

  4. He's never liked us we will prove him wrong he wants to worry about his bias views on hs team liverpool bet he got them to win as usual not an easy game for them. Anyway Lawro is a waste of space how he's still a pundit is beyond me the dinosour.
