"Stop crying, Frank Lampard"
Oh dear, Chelsea are shit and Frank Wankhard will shortly be looking for a new job so I had a quick look around the clubs at his managerial level who are needing a new manager. Couldn't find one but he could stay at Chelsea....and be demoted to a Groundsman where his tears could water the grass.....
Anyway, enough gloating for today as I know one of our team is rather excited after hitting the correct score last night. Full details at the end.
And for today's featured game.....
Let's be honest, will anyone oppose a Liverpool victory tonight? Southampton are not doing too badly but a lack of venom in front of goal seems to be costing them dearly. Saints keeper, Alex McCarthy, will miss the game due to Covid and he has been a big help this season, keeping 7 clean sheets! The home advantage in this crowd less season is barely negligible so that's going to stop a comfortable Liverpool victory.
I'm simply going for a 0-4 win to Liverpool at a canter and I'm choosing Leeds' very own James Milner as the first goalscorer because it's his 35th birthday today!
Simply write the name of the FIRST GOALSCORER and the CORRECT SCORE as a comment. Competition closes 5 minutes before kick-off which is 20.00 GMT.
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.....
Step up to the oche @monsterbuster who correctly predicted the 1-3 away win and picks up 6500 tokens in total! No one got the first goalscorer who was some bloke I'd never heard of from City and so there are appearance fees for @corporateay, @jfang003, @hirohurl, @amr008, @lebey1, @anderssinho, @bitandi, @chrisparis, @marvinix and @hykss.sports
If anyone knows a quicker way to send tokens to multiple users. please let me know! It takes ages lol...
Well, that's another day sorted out! AS we get more players, there is an exponentially higher chance of this old boy making a mistake so if I do miss anyone, please shout out!
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.
