Friday Fantasy Forecast

19 12 2008

Marlon King – Hull City have secured points in their last five matches, most recently a draw against Liverpool, and King has been a big factor in their success of late.  With two goals and an assist in his last three, he’s heating up at the right time, as big matches against Manchester City, Aston Villa and Arsenal are coming up.

Michael Owen – Owen seems to be finding his form back from injury with four straight 90 minute showings.  A pair of goals against Stoke two weeks ago and a goal last week versus Pompey suggests he’s heating up.  There’s always a chance of injury with him, but when he gets on a roll, he’s one of the best in the league.

Blackburn Forwards – Blackburn have sacked Paul Ince and replaced him with Sam Allardyce in another round of manager musical chairs.  Teams always respond to a new manager and Rovers will enjoy playing for Big Sam.  I still see problems on defense, but upfront I expect a return to form for both Roque Santa Cruz and Benny McCarthy.  These guys are just too talented to remain at the bottom and have a reasonable schedule for the next month or two, so buy low now.
