FIRST BROADCAST : February 23, 2019 3:00 pm

Its the return of the Premier League and with it the return of Verulam Sports regular feature, 'Like Father, Like Merson...' We pit Saints star Striker Sam in the score prediction wars against his Professional Pundit Pop Paul. I know all sports fans will be backing themselves as punditry experts; sure in their knowledge and better equipped to predict the outcomes than the pundits.

If this sounds like you, get involved: tweet @verulamsport, email studio@radioverulam.com or call in between 3-6pm on Saturday.

Rules are very simple, 3 points for the exact scoreline prediction, 1 point for getting the correct result but an incorrect scoreline and 0 points for an incorrect prediction. After a sterling week last time out Saints star Striker Sam reclaims the lead over Pro-pundit Pop Paul Merson but it is incredibly tight: Sam Merson 178 pts Paul Merson 176 pts.

Plus in 2019 we here at Verulam Sport are taking up the challenge and its just a close, just as compelling: Tony Rice 39 pts, Matthew Turvey 37 pts, Jo Kiely 36 pts and Jason McKenna 32pts.

No excuses....get involved.
