Round 1 Summary
We managed to scramble up 34 willing contestants for this one so not so bad but who got through in Group 1? How many of you survived ultimate hell week?
How many of the experts fell at the first hurdle?
In fairness it was aa tough week to start as there were two local derbies and some 50/50 games. 9 people had Newcastle this week and it was looking like we were in for a massive bloodbath in the first week as Newcastle struggled to breakdown Fulham but they got over the line in the end. So well done @gone-hive @diikaan @emeka4 @sharon999 @ga38jem @ablaze @etiboy56 @hamza-art @arcange @saif-ul-wahab @deniskj. Please select your teams for next weeks 2nd round from the fixture list below. And you 9 were lucky by the way. It's a good job Mitrovic kicked the ball twice here or you all would have been toast!!
7 contestants picked Brentford and they were right with their convincing win over Bournemouth. Some wise selections here as this leaves them with the top 6 still in their armoury.
Congrats @mckane @thoth442 @blockchainfpl @micheal87 @b0s @shamzy and @amirtheawesome1.
@talesfrmthecrypt tried to be knocked out in the first week again after reading the fine print around week 1. He did the same by picking Bournemouth in the 2022 LMS and managed to win that match against the odds as well. The man would select Scunthorpe or Maidstone if he could, such is his strategy to get knocked out in Round 1. So a great pick there selecting a revitalised Southampton who knocked out Man City earlier in the week and now beating Everton.
3 contestants were nervous and selected an out of form Chelsea who finally got the win so @iamchuks,@skanderh, @freedom007. @korver and @ogeewitty are through to the next round after a good pick with Villa. .
@ogeewitty was knocked out in the first round last time around which just goes to show that even if you nothing about football, you can still qualify eventually which is the great thing about this contest.
@cryptoandcoffee the seasoned pro picked a weaker team also in Nottingham Forest and they got a well deserved win against
@wolfgangsport went for Arsenal. One of the many contributors to @sportstalksocial who knows his stuff. Arsenal had a local derby but they won convincingly so he is through to Round 2 as well.
So who got eliminated from Last Man Standing in Round 1??
It was amazing only 3 people selected Liverpool versus Brighton. This is either strategic keeping the better team or it shows how far Liverpool have fallen losing 3 nil to Brighton. No nobody saw this coming especially these 3.
Klopp was devo. I actually lived in Dortmund in 2015 and it looked very very like what is happening him this year. Heavy metal football can only last so long.
@twicejoy was. the only contestant to go for Man City which would normally be a safe bet. But a Dutch man called Ten Haag has other ideas and is making Man United good again. (No contestant had United by the way) Unlucky @twicejoy. The goal though. Was he interfering with play. It was a mad goal that sealed your fate.
@kraken99 and @tengolotodo. .What were you thinking?? Even @talesfromthecrypt didn't pick them. A couple of the players were accosted in the streets and a board member (woman) was put in a headlock.
And finally someone else got eliminated but I am a but tight for time and can't really think of his or her name. :-(
But Wait.....One Last Chance
So the 9 people who were eliminated have one more chance to go through to the next round. Please note that this is only available in week 1 and no other week. If you send @blanchy 1 Hive , I will send you 1 HBI you can enter into Round 2.
Please note : You still cannot select the same team as Round 1
I will review my wallet on Thursday 19th to see who sent me the Hive for entry into the next round.
From Thursday on there is a freezeout
Anybody who would like to take part from week 2 needs to do the same as above if they now want to take part.
Fixture List Week 2
So the next round of fixtures is on the 21st and 22nd of January and the deadline for your entries is Saturday morning 21st January at 10am GMT. No selections will trigger an automatic selection in alphabetical order. 2 no shows and you are eliminated. I presume most of you will use one big gun this week but we will wait and see. Comment below with your selection and best of luck. I will send a reminder tag for the contestants who have not selected their team on Thursday.
An interesting week. Best of luck to everybody in week 2. This season is more interesting with more upsets and draws from teams like Liverpool , Spurs , Chelsea and Man City so this is wide open. Thanks for everyone for taking part again. I am gonna add 1 million SPORTS to the pot because I am a kind bastard. Gud Luck.
Glad Chelsea got their head right this week. For week two I will be picking Manchester City, someone has to pay for City's loss this past week and it is likely going to be Wolves this week. looking forward to the next round.
Chuks for some reason I thought Chelsea played Friday and got beat but it was the cup so I was tagging you. You must have thought I was gone mental. Congrats on your win to the next round.
Glad to be still in the game. This will be another little gamble. I'll pick Brighton this time.
Brighton it is. Congrats on getting through.
Hmmn, looks like you are suggesting to me the path to victory.🙂
no mind of your own @ogeewitty?
Did I break any rule?😁😁

Super fun, thanks for running this. I chose Spurs for week 2 please and thanks!
Spurs it is @thoth442
A sad game for Anfield indeed 🤧
And you had plans to steal my throne
Laugh all you want😂😂😂
I'm coming back 😎
I would be waiting 😂😂
Perfect @seki1 an HBI is on way back to you. What is this weeks selection
Aston villa bro
@seki1 you have one more chance if you want to avail of it. Let me know.
I'm availing all right 🙂
You better bet it on your Tottenham ostrich...
Or whatever bird y'all have in the crest😂😂
Ohh I got knocked out on week1.
Kudos to y'all that's through to the next round, I'm watching watching.
You have one more chance to stay in if you want @artist-freepae . Let me know if you want to avail of it
Ohh cool, I just read through the post and I've seen the requirement.
Correction, I went with Aston Villa, Mr @korver went with Aston Villa too.
By the way fellow contestants, I tell you for free,going with Aston Villa for this next round is a great idea.
Congrats to all in the past round,whether you made it through or not.
Sorry my mistake. corrected. You are still through so stop whining.
I'm sure that setting facts straight is not defined as whining boss.
Apologies taken, I understand typos and mistakes can happen, scripting things like this.
Even this my short note, can have typos🤷♂️
So @tengolotodo and my man @mckane congrats for going the Villa way. I just knew they had it in them top this current Southampton side. Mckane which level? Sup?
My pleasure to wish you guys, all the very best as you are now part of quite a few people who have progressed.
Thanks for that, it was a case of second time lucky to find the conqueror of Southampton as I picked Everton last week.
Oh okay, is that so? You're blessed then.
Keep firing on!
Well, I guess you've followed my blogs enough to know that I have a thing or two to do with the Gunners. I was saving them for later rounds because they are sure winners almost always this season. So there you go, you can use them to your advantage.
Bros, I hail o.
That Villa team is just so serious under Emery. They've got the attacking talents. It's unbelievable how they played like a bunch of mediocre under Gerrard.
Abegi wetin dey "unbelieve" you inside the matter? Even Rangers he left behind, didn't you see the massive improvement IMMEDIATELY he left?
I protested immediately Gerrard was appointed na– Who has Gerrard's number.
Once Emery was appointed,I knew Villa has done the kind of business called "a steal"– under normal circumstances he's too big for Villa. So yeah, Villa can go on and enjoy this phase. Cheers to them.
Much regards bro.
At least he helped Rangers won the Scottish league that Celtic has turned to family heritage nah. Didn't watch a lot of his games at Rangers, but the couple times I watched Rangers vs Celtics under Gerrard they did relatively well. Maybe I should say he fooled me at Rangers.
I AM THE SPECIAL ONE!!
Put me in as West Ham unless something changes until the matches come around.
West Ham eh? I suppose they have to beat someone sometime. It may as well be Everton.
The boss couldn't be wrong.🙂
I'm so sorry the Arse did it! Please have me as Newcastle for this Matchday
Newcastle it is Wolfie!
Oh no,my old friend from the Aussie clime. Almost, just almost.
My regards buddy.
Newcastle united is still my pick
@etiboy56 the aim of the game is you can't choose the same team twice. Pick another my friend.
Someone needs to get a translator for Yerry Mina coz I don't think he speaks Scouse!
I'll go for West Ham to get a win at home in a must win match for them.
Must win match for the toffees too though. Declan Rice is still dancing in the dressing room while Yerry Mina has to put in a performance.
I’m going on the basis that fear is never a motivating factor and a few of those Everton boys must be bricking it after the weekend
Wow, got something to learn for this. Congrats

We love your support by voting @detlev.witness on HIVE .
The Spurs loss surely must hurt. I would not blame Lloris for this goal but it looked definetly funny :D
My next pick is ManCity. I want to play it extra safe this time. No way they dont win two times in a row :D

Man City will be baying for blood after last weekend . nice pick buddy . I wouldn't be backing Spurs I tell ya
Well at least I have used up Everton now!
Will try again, these fixtures though, may as well pluck from the air!
Go for Villa this time!
From a comment above:
"By the way fellow contestants, I tell you for free,going with Aston Villa for this next round is a great idea."
Well played there man. Wish you the best.
WE shall see
Cheers I will send you HBI back tonight. Entry received Villa it is
Woo, we did it. So pumped, for this gameweek, I'm going for Brighton 🤞. Hopefully, Leicester are shit this gameweek as well
Brighton it is @b0s
Aston Villa it is for me. Those guys are playing thrilling football under Emery.
Going with Man City as I don't like the look of the fixtures this week and see plenty of drawn games.
ok buddy Man City it is.
And spot on that's what is happening. Wow
trusting in pep and his boys to deliver me...MANCHESTER CITY LET`S GO
Super hard week it is, my vote goes to Nottingham Forest
Notts Forest it is mate.
Sorry for the repetition let's me go with Manchester city as my pick
OMG, I can't even believe I went through round 1 as I had absolutely no idea on which team to pick.
Let's try another random pick for round 2: it will be Brighton for me.
Should I go through to the next round, I would consider picking a lottery ticket too 😁🍀
Brighton it is @arcange . Congrats on getting through. 😀😀I tried to contact you on Discord around the badge but I can't find you on it.
