Bonus HBI Shares ++ First Goal Scorer + Correct Score Comp. No 397: EPL - West Ham v Liverpool - 7th November 2021 - 7500 + 5000 Sports Tokens

Manchester's 2nd team lost again yesterday to get my weekend off to a happy start. I just had to mention that first of course!

Norwich won their first game of the season and promptly sacked their manager, Daniel Farke which wasn't really surprising. Watching them against Leeds, it looked as though they had no ideas on what to do. I just read that after their first goal went in to give them the lead, that was the first time they'd been in front at any time this season. One win isn't going to keep them up unless a new manager performs miracles.

As for our game, Newcastle and Brighton ended in a draw with the possibility of Eddie Howe taking the vacant seat looking more likely as he watched from the stands with the new chairman, Amanda Stavely.

The manager-go-round has started in earnest and it could be an interesting news week as we are once again blighted by another ridiculous international break. There third so far this season!

So for us today, it's the latest kick-off and the game between...


@nathen007's Prediction

It can't be denied that West Ham are doing very well this season, sitting proudly in fourth, just 2 points behind Liverpool in third but after their exertions in the Europa Cup this week, I'd suspect they might be out of puff, not quite having the depth of squad that the bigger teams, like Liverpool, have in reserve.

Liverpool were impressive against Atletico Madrid this week but the happy reappearance of Robert Firminho from injury at halftime was soon diminished as he went off injured again 30 minutes later. Another 4 weeks on the sidelines is expected and on the subject of injuries, Milner is still out after his zimmer frame collapsed causing him a hamstring problem, and Kieta is also out due to his hamstring. On the plus side, Thiago could be named in the starting eleven after a long absence.

Are West Ham flattering to deceive as it stands or are Liverpool going to struggle down in London?

Prediction: West Ham 0 - 3 Liverpool - First goal scorer: Salah

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 16:30 GMT

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...

We had a few again for the scoreline but no one got the first goalscorer yet again so the pot once more rises! Surely it will go today.

Well done to @jersteemit, @jfang003, @harpreetjanda, @tokutaro22, @iamchuks and @pthker2010 who all share the 5k and after a little rounding up, take 1000 tokens each.


An HBI share each is on its way to @abimbola753 and @pthker2010. Congrats guys.


That's it for another day and for the next two weeks, we might be a little intermittent as there is no Premier League action as we have yet another round of boring World Cup Qualifiers.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend gang and thanks as always for playing.
