HOW ABOUT A QUADRUPLE POT?
Here's the deal. If Man. U LOSE, I will double the pot. When Leeds win, I will double the pot. If Man.U lose AND Leeds win, I quadruple the pot!
Everything to play for gang!
But first, yesterday's game...
West Brom came from a goal down last night to go top of the Championship with a 2-1 over QPR.
They left it very late in the day but a double for Grant, who was a popular choice for first goal scorer, in the last 15 minutes, settled the game and the hearts of the Baggie's fans!
The first goal-scorer, which no one predicted, was Hive's very own Andre Grey, who is on loan from Watford with a goal after just 1 minute.
OK, we're board with the Championship so it's back to the EPL with the late kick-off today...
Jurgen Klopp, or 'the referee whisperer' as we now call him in Leeds will be hoping for a solid 3 points from this away tie in London at new boys Brentford to keep up the pressure on Chelsea at the top of the table.
Brentford have made a decent start to their Premier League career and currently sit in a very respectable ninth place on eight points after a really solid win last week against Wolves.
With no new injury concerns, it will probably a very similar team that welcome Liverpool.
Apart from the loss of Elliot (who is twice the man his boss will ever be), Trent Alexander-Arnold is available again after illness, plus Roberto Firmino, James Milner and Neco Williams are all in contention for a start in Klopps merry-go-round of a rotation system.
On paper, Liverpool ought to be far too strong for them but with Ex Leeds Pontus Jannsen in defence, Brentford will be no pushover.
Prediction: Brentford 1 : 1 Liverpool : First Goal scorer - Mane
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 17.30 BST (16.30 UTC)
The Small Print
In the first goal scorer 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 goal scorer 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 50 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 pay-outs will never exceed 50% of post pay-out. Other bonuses are paid out at my discretion.
And the Winners Were...
There was, quite surprisingly, just the one winner so it's a big shout-out to one of our longest playing team members, @ralph75. He walks off with the full 5k pot. We had no winners of the first goal scorer, so the pot now stands at 8K so imagine if Leeds win and Scum lose. That will stand at 24k in total!
That's all for today. Don't forget it's an earlier than normal kick-off so get your predictions in, in plenty of time. Have a great weekend guys and thanks for playing along :-)
