Fri
1. Brentford v Arsenal

Sat
2. Man Utd v Leeds
3. Burnley v Brighton
4. Chelsea v Crystal Palace
5. Everton v Southampton
6. Leicester v Wolves
7. Watford v Aston Villa

If he's being asked to head the ball too frequently - which isn't exactly his specialty - it could affect his ear and cause an infection. Especially if the ball hits him on the ear directly.

You don't get to pick which game  ;D If we get 10, or close to 10, I'll randomise everyone and you'll get a number from 1-10 for the game you get to pick the result for.

4 more spots left in this, got until tomorrow morning.

Those who are doing it... if there are just 6 do I just randomise it so 6 games get picked and we each get one of those and we do a 6 game acca? Or do the first 4 get a second game each so we do all 10?

6 would be more achievable.

In all the years I've ran the RPLP competition, I don't recall anyone getting all 10 results correct. Obviously that's 1 person picking 10 results, and this is 10 people picking 1 result, but it's still a huge ask.

I say we go with 1 game each regardless of how many people we have then more can join in following weeks to bring it up to 10.

Fucking Appalled - West Ham vs Liverpool


To me, the selections look pretty straightforward, but there's always one fucker that ruins a cert. 2 toughest selections are Palace and us.

Assuming the final pick is as expected, it looks like best odds is on Hills from the regular sites. Slightly better on some mad ones like SpreadEx and VBET

Hills 26.15/1
Betfair 23.78/1
365 23.68/1
Skybet 22.94/1
PP 21.52/1

Of course that could be irrelevant if the pick isn't Brentford to win
