I hope everyone celebrating had a wonderful Christmas and New Year and now its all over, let's get back to winning some tokens but firstly, we must sort out the winners from the last game and for once, its WASN'T @friendlymoose.......
We will sort out the prizes and appearance fees at the end so let's start with today's featured game and I might be tempting fate after an excellent Christmas period so far for Leeds but.....
Without any hint of bias, I can't see Leeds losing this. Buoyed with the confidence that a 5-0 thrashing brings with it, we will be going to London full of confidence despite having our first three central defenders all out injured. 'Calamity Cooper's ' injury and replacement by Pascal Struijk seems to have been a blessing and the lad barely put a foot wrong all game last time out and even when 'Barn Door Bamford' isn't getting the goals, there doesn't seem to be anyone on the squad who isn't capable of popping one in!
Two clean sheets and six goals and they say we can't defend!!
For Spurs, they are still missing Bale and the danger as always is going to come from Son and Kane but if we use the excellent Dallas to man-mark Son out of the game, Bale will have no service. No way we're going to lose!
A draw is a possibility but I'm going to keep the faith. I'm calling it Spurs 0:2 Leeds with Raphinha getting the opener.
Mourinho won't know what's hit him!
Simply write the name of the FIRST GOALSCORER and the CORRECT SCORE as a comment. Competition closes 5 minutes before kick-off which is 12.30 GMT.
VERY EARLY KICK-OFF - GET YOUR PREDICTIONS IN EARLY
The Small Print
In the first goalscorer competition, own goals do not count. In the correct score competition, it's the score after 90mins. Extra time and penalties do not count and the pot for each competition will roll-over if there is no winner. If more than one person chooses the same first goalscorer or correct score, the prize is shared and everyone gets a little upvote! It seems I also need to add, one entry per person. Don't forget the new rule that only people with a rep of 45 or above are eligible to enter unless they have been approved. The bonus will be added to any winnings ONLY if Leeds United win and/or Man U lose and all payouts will never exceed 50% of post payout. Other bonuses paid out at my discretion.
And the winners were.....
Man. U, of course, won 2-0 with the now-banned Cavani getting the first goal and although no one got the correct score, @anderssinho , @amr008 and @monsterbuster got the first-goalscorer correct! Well done guys you share the pot of 6000 tokens giving you 2000 each plus your 500 appearance fees.
@marvinix , @friendlymoose (useless lol) @chrisparis , @lebey1 and @jfang003 all pick up their 500 appearance fees!
We carry on with the First Goalscorer pot reset to 5000 and the correct score pot at 5500 tokens!
If I missed anyone or made any mistakes. Let me know in comments, please.
That's it for today's post, team. It's really brilliant to see a load of new players joining in. As always, good luck tonight and a huge thank-you for creating some engagement and playing along. Have a wonderful New Year and stay healthy and happy.
