Harry and Lloyd’s Predictions GW31
Welcome to Harry and Lloyd’s Predictions GW31. Looking over some of the scorelines from GW30 it’s a surprise anyone scored any points. It started off in a strange fashion with an unlikely 1-2 victory for Brighton over Palace and it just got stranger from there on in. Newcastle came back from 0-2 down to claim an unexpected 3-2 victory, whilst down on the South Coast, Southampton claimed a surprise win over a Spurs side who look in serious danger of relinquishing their top-four status to rivals Arsenal. Sunday was much the same; whilst a Liverpool win was widely predicted few if any would have gone for 4-2. Wolves were just minutes away from a memorable victory at Stamford Bridge before Eden Hazard had his say, and in the final match of the game-week the unthinkable happened; no not Ole Gunnar Solskjær first defeat as Manchester United manager but an Arsenal clean sheet! Bonkers.
As expected it was a low scoring week. 14pts was enough to secure top-spot and Giggy was the one to do it. Next up it’s second-placed MDB with a solid 10. The only one to correctly predict the first goal scorer (old man Glenn Murray) was Red Robbo, enough to secure third place where he was joined by Redkev, PM, and Offalymartin all coming in with 9pts.
One more notable event; this week Kevthezed became our 100th entrant so special thanks to him and the other 99 of you for making this competition what it is!
THIS WEEK’S COMPETITION… Scoring couldn’t be simpler: Correct Score = 3 points Correct result = 1 point Correct First Goalscorer of the game-week = 5pts (Points are awarded on an ‘either/or’ basis, so you’ll either score 3 points for a Correct Score or 1 point for a Correct Result, these are never added together for a 4 point score.) Tie-Breaker In the event that two or more members are tied as winners for the week the overall winner of the t-shirt will be decided by a tie-breaker. In order to do this, we ask that you also post your prediction of the time that the first goal of the week will be scored at. Nearest the pin wins.
The Rules… They are few; 1 entry per person and all entries must be submitted prior to the first game of the game-week. Kick-off this week comes on Saturday at 3:00 pm. Once all the games have been played, we’ll count up the scores and the winner(s) will be announced in the following week’s competition article and each week our winner will walk away with an FF247 branded t-shirt! ). So just to recap all you need to do is; – Copy and paste the fixtures from below and pop your score prediction on each. – Tell us who you think will be the first goal scorer of the week (and that can be from any game regardless of your other predictions) – Add in your time of the first goal of the week for any potential tie-breaker situation. Here are the fixtures, best of luck to you all!
