Bonus HBI Shares ++ First Goal Scorer + Correct Score Comp. No. 403: Premier League - Leeds United v Crystal Palace - 30th November 2021 - 11000 + 10000 Sports Tokens
Chelsea ought to be ashamed. Manchester United more so. Man. U looked clueless and did nothing other than sit back and try and hit Chelsea on the break, it wasn't a successful tactic and the players looked like they had no idea what to do.
Chelsea had 66% of possession and 24 shots but their wastefulness cost them when Sancho hit the first, against the run of play after a dreadful mistake by Jorghino just after the break. Chlsea had to turn it up a notch and got the equaliser through a penalty in which Jorghino redeemed himself.
Ralf Rangnick has a lot of work to do!
Anyway, its time for some rare midweek Premiership action this week and we start today with a huge game between...
Seriously, you're expecting me to be impartial? Leeds have had a rotten run with injuries and as we look forward to the return of Bamford and Ayling, we have started putting in some decent performances. Saturdays away draw against high-flying Brighton may have been slightly lucky but it was a solid point on the board from a tough game that we needed. Time to fight is now and Leeds never shirk from a challenge. At the end of the day, although we're not firing in goals, we've only one lost from the last five.
Palace lost at home to Villa at the weekend and to be honest, they are one of those terrible clubs that really didn't ought to be in the Premier League!
Leeds are about to burst into life and this going to be a big win!
Prediction: LEEDS UNITED 4 : 0 Crystal Palace - First Goal scorer: Gelhardt

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 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...
1-1....well I for one didn't expect that but it seems rather a lot of you guys did and so well done to @jersteemit, @jfang003, @tokutaro22 and @harpreetjanda who take home 2500k each!
No one got Sancho as the first goalscorer so the pot rises again to 11k.
That's it for today, it looks like a VERY late night...or early morning for me as the game doesn't kick off until 3.15 am on Wednesday morning in Thailand. With online school starting just 3 hours after kick-off, I hope the kids are going to be gentle with me.
