@nathen007 is a very happy bunny today! A classy and straightforward 2-0 against Palace last night puts us in 10th position and with a game at the weekend against a struggling Arsenal, stands us in good stead to aim for a European spot if we can put a decent run of consistent results together.
As for the big game in Ghana last night, we had a winner. I got the correct result of course but so dod someone else. As for the 5K bonus, only one person gave it a shot and that was @hykss.sports and well done to him for getting one of the players, Gary Speed. The other guy in the background was more difficult and that was Rod Wallace but still, his guess of Phil 'waltzing' Masinga was a good try. Such is my good mood today, I'm sending you 2500 my friend and thanks!
The only question, where in the world are we going today. I was thinking of the Pakistani women's under 23s third division but again, due to my good mood, I'm not going to make it so difficult...
So I thought we'd have a look at the UAE Arabian Cup playoff game...
WTF? I can't make head nor tail of who's who!!!
I'm losing the will to live with this so I think tomorrow we will get back to more familiar territory so without further ado...
Prediction: Al Wasi 1 : 3 Al Ahli - First goalscorer: Igor Jesus Maciel da Cruz (from Brazil!)
Simply write the name of the FIRST GOALSCORER and the CORRECT SCORE as a comment. The competition closes 5 minutes before kick-off which is 16.15 GMT.
CUP GAME SO ONLY 90 MINS COUNT AND IT'S AN EARLY KICK-OFF SO HURRY UP!
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...
Big respect to our new-found Ghanaian football expert @marvinix who got the correct 1-1 score (as did I lol) and he takes 5000+500 tokens. No one got the first goalscorer so there are appearance fees on their way to:-
@ralph75, @nonsowrites, @chrisparis, @jfang003, @anderssinho, @hykss.sports, @friendlymoose and @monsterbuster.
