Bonus HBI Shares ++ First Goal Scorer + Correct Score Comp. No 384: EPL Arsenal v Crystal Palace - October 18th 2021 - 6000 + 5500 Sports Tokens

So the celebrations are over and Newcastle got back to their normal routine of getting beaten but not without a little excitement for the fans when Callum Wilson scored and gave them the lead after 2 minutes!

Tottenham soon fired back with a quick double and despite an own goal near the end, it was still a very comfortable win for Spurs by 2-3 that did nothing to calm the restive brows of Newcastle fans who can look forward to Championship action next season!

Anyway, enough about the Toon. We have another London derby this evening.


@nathen007's Prediction

Arsenal are without Xhaka due to a long-term injury and Mikel Arteta will still be under pressure after the Arsenal 'rebirth' failed to gather much momentum after the celebrated win over Spurs a couple of weeks ago.

With a host of players away on international duty last week, they will be hoping for no more injury worries to ass to their woe for this game that sees old Gooner favourite, Patrick Vieira, make a return to the Arsenal, but this time, as manager of their opponents tonight, Crystal Palace.

Palace themselves have no injury worries and seem to be solidifying their defence and adding some steel to the midfield which you'd expect under the leadership of a man with Vieira's pedigree.

Despite the improvements, this ought to be cut and dried win for Arsenal as their individual player quality across each position on the park and the home advantage should tell but if they don't play as a team, Palace could easily nick something from this.

Prediction: Arsenal 2 : 1 Crystal Palace - First Goal scorer: Aubameyang

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 20.00 BST

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...

I'm chalking that game up to me! No one got the score or the first goalscorer so the pot will rise up for today's game.

As for the HBI shares, again it's 2 each that go to @numpypython and @emeka4, well-done guys.


I guess that's it for today. I would have liked to see the game tonight but 2 am kick-offs are only getting seen when it's Leeds!

Thanks for playing along and have a great day. See you all back here tomorrow :-)
