Well that went well! We are really struggling at the moment. I might actually do a full report tomorrow on where I think we're going wrong but needless to say, at 5am as I write this, I'm not a happy bunny!
As for the new format, I'm quite pleased with it and with Salah getting the opener, some of you are going to be sharing 25K. The opener was Salah's penalty on the 15 minute mark so no doubt, the opening 1k pot went too! Full details at the end.
And so to today and we have a rare Thursday night game between...
Arsenal with three games in hand and only 4 points off 4th placed Man.U can really put the pressure on with a win tonight. On form since September, only Liverpool and City better their 13 wins and they seem to have finally settled down and created a tight defence that's kept 11 clean sheet this season.
With no injury worries, Arsenal will have a full squad to choose from however, this game is absolutely not a foregone conclusion!
It's only two weeks since these teams met at Molineaux when Arsenal emerged the winners but Wolves sit in 7th on 40 points and have a fine run of 6 wins and a draw from the last 8 games which has seen them also pushing for a Champions League place.
Bruno Lage has been a revelation since taking over the club and taking anything from this game tonight will set up a grandstand finish for the final Champions League place.
@nathen007's Prediction: Arsenal 1 : 0 Wolves - First goal scorer: Saka
Simply write the name of the FIRST GOALSCORER, the CORRECT SCORE AND the TIME OF THE FIRST GOAL as a comment. The competition closes 5 minutes before kick-off 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 is fixed at 25K except the time of the first goal competition which rolls over daily starting at 1K. If more than one person chooses the same first goal scorer or correct score, the prize is shared, and everyone gets a little upvote! Don't forget, you can't choose the same prediction as me! It seems I also need to add, one entry per person. Don't forget new rule that only people with a rep of 50 or above are eligible to enter unless they have been approved. My game, my decision is final.
And the Winners were...
WE will not mention the scoreline but needless to say, no one got it and finally the time of the first goal scored was on 15 minutes, and so well done to @emeka4. I did expect the Time pot to build up a little but we will try again by starting from 1k again tomorrow.
