NEW FORMAT: 52000 Sports Tokens Up For Grabs Today - First Goal Scorer + Correct Score Comp. No. 427: EPL - Brentford v Newcastle - 25th February 2022

It was a totally expected home win for Southampton last night as Norwich's relegation became ever more definite.

A goal from Che Adams in the 36th minute followed by a corking volley in the 88th minute from Romeu ended what was an absolutely clueless and dreadful display, which was surprising after such a good performance against Liverpool. With just one shot on target recorded, it's not difficult to see why Norwich are glued to the bottom of the table leaving just two other teams to join them in the Championship next year.

Those two teams could be...

@nathen007's Prediction

Brentford sit in 14th on 24 points, three places and 2 points above Newcastle but having played 2 more games.

They have lost 4 and drawn 1 of their last 5 games but Newcastle are finally on a decent run of form which sees them unbeaten in their last 5 with three wins and two draws.

This is a 6 pointer today with both teams desperately needing the win, this could be Brentford's chance to stop the slide, aided by their vociferous home crowd. The other big positive in their favour is the possible debut of Christian Eriksen which would be both an emotional and morale booster as well as his obvious class. It could be a huge day for him in more ways than one.Brentford's top scorer, Ivan Toney is also back today and how much have they missed his prowess in front of goal!

As for Newcastle, their own talismanic Allan Saint-Maximin is a serious doubt but Ryan Fraser is now available for selection.

This could be a very interesting and emotional game!

Prediction: Brentford 2 : 1 Newcastle - First goal scorer: Ivan Toney

Simply write the name of the FIRST GOALSCORER, the CORRECT SCORE AND the TIME OF THE FIRST GOAL as a comment. The competition closes 5 minutes before kick-off which is 15.00 GMT

EARLY KICK-OFF TODAY!!

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 is fixed at 25K except the time of the first goal competition which rolls over daily starting at 1K. If more than one person chooses the same first goal scorer or correct score, the prize is shared, and everyone gets a little upvote! Don't forget, you can't choose the same prediction as me! It seems I also need to add, one entry per person. Don't forget new rule that only people with a rep of 50 or above are eligible to enter unless they have been approved. My game, my decision is final.

And the Winners were...

So it finished 2-0. That was my prediction so no winners there but first goal scorer was Che Adams which many of you got so well done to @mrenglish, @monsterbuster, @hykss.sports, @firstborn.pob, @amakauz so you guys will be picking up 5000 tokens each!

No one correctly guessed the time of the first goal which was 36 minutes and so the pot rolls up to 2000 today!

So that looks like it for today. Very important game for me tonight and as the Leeds game starts at 7.30 pm Thai time, it will be the first chance in a long time to enjoy it with a beer and a plate of chips! Ahh, the simple pleasures ;-)

Best wishes and good luck to all, have a great weekend and I'll see you all back here tomorrow.

Marching On Together (all over Kane and Son!)

Lol. That's going to be a loooong comment.

Hoping for a cagey affair where both teams are more worried about losing than winning. Also I like the idea that at least for part of the match, I'll be winning!

His prediction just made me laugh. Some humour in how he puts it. @talesfrmthecrypt my man.😊

I was trying to recall Jonjo Shelvey when I was thinking goal scorer then. Well it's gone now,I stay with Wood.

Eriksen is right on the bench,you can be sure he will play today. What a day for football and beyond. Hope you went to that post of mine, let's celebrate life.

I seem to be taking over this page.🙈
Well it happens that this match concerns a topic dear to my heart(I even made a post on it).
There is a reason why it was both sets of fans that stood to their feet to welcome the introduction(or reintroduction) of Christian Eriksen.

This is beyond,which club you support or which country you hail from. This is a testimony of being alive after such a horrific incident. It's a miracle really and sometimes I get kinda worried if his body will hold up. I suppose we are all glad to see him back and glad Brentford City got him...seems like the big boys were reluctant. Brentford not bad for him at all, big kudos to them.

Congrats sir Eriksen
