Seriously, it was like watching a Premier League team against a division 2 side. Manchester were not even on the same planet as Liverpool and if Salah had have had his shooting boots on, it could, and should have been 4 or 5 nil...which is what I predicted. Serious problems at United and the rest of the Premier League, its like Liverpool in their own division at the moment. Untouchable.
How did you guys do? Well, no one got the first goalscorer as usual of course, but one player, thanks to that Salah goal in the dying seconds of injury time, gets the pot to themselves! Full details at the end. I forgot to mention it yesterday but as Man U lost, there is a 50% bonus to add too!
On to today, and as I am still seething and sulking from Leeds' losing AGAIN on Saturday (mumbles "fucking Bamford" under his breath) I will not be choosing the Championship game that's being played tonight between West Bums and Stoke and will be turning out attention to Serie A and the game between Atalanta and Spal.
@nathen007 's Prediction
After some early success, I'm not actually doing too well at this but here goes. Atalanta are having a decent season, SPAL are crap since they sold my beloved Mirco Antenucci to Bari which is looking like a big mistake. Even at 35, he has to be better than Bamford so why the hell we let him go is anyone's guess. So. It will be 3-0 to Atalanta, with Illicic scoring the first goal.
Simply write the name of the FIRST GOALSCORER and the CORRECT SCORE as a comment. Competition closes 5 minutes before kick-off of the first game which is 19.45 GMT
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.....
Step up and take a bow @indosports who has to be the luckiest player out there!! Well done mate. 50% has been added to the pot which made a total of 4500 tokens which are winging their way to you right now!
