Apologies for keeping the sole jackpot winner waiting for a couple of days as I had to rush down to Koh Samui to sort a problem with my new house and forgot my laptop.

It was also very nice to see Captain @metzli return from her loan-spell at team Leo, she has been missed but needs to get up to date with the transfer market I think lol ;-)
Anyway, full details at the end but for now, we're back in Premier League action tonight which is rare for a Thursday as a resurgent Arsenal host a struggling Palace...


@nathen007's Prediction

Arsenal are back! and although they needed extra time to see off Newcastle in the cup, they are on a run of 4 straight victories have managed to bag 8 goals in their last three league games. Until then, they'd been struggling to score. You-know-who has scored in three games in a row. I'm expecting to see his name mentioned a lot in the comments. Can they keep it up?

As for Palace, they're having a rotten run. Just two clean sheets all season and winning only one of their last seven, but their front 3 are electric, I love watching them and were on-fire when they beat Leeds earlier this season. Don't write them off so easily especially because it's statistically extremely rare for a team to get more than three consecutive wins.....

That's why I'm calling a 2-2 draw (sorry @arsenal4life!) with the first goal scored by Palace's Zaha. You read it here first!

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.....

Despite the huge gap in League positions, The Hammers made hard work of overcoming a hard-working Stockport and the game finished 0-1 with the solitary goal being scored by Craig Dawson in the 83rd minute.......
Step forward and receive the plaudits @corporateay! Well done mate, that was a good shout. You have received 7500+500=8000 Tokens in total, spend them wisely my friend lol...
Captain @metzli, @cabinet24, @anderssinho, @jfang003, @marvinix, @chrisparis, new-boy @shiso (welcome to the game my friend), @lebey1, @friendlymoose and @hykss.sports all pick-up their appearance fees.


Well that's it for today and I wanted to finish with a huge thanks to everyone for helping each other out! The engagement and community are what Hive and Sport is all about so keep supporting and looking out for each other! Best wishes and good luck with tonight's game.
