What a shame! Despite Grandaldo scoring again for Man.U, and despite having the billion-dollar boy, Jordan Sancho playing, they still lost to Young Boys (WHO?!!!) in their opening Champions League game. It's nice to wake up to good news. It really sets me up for the day!
Meanwhile, in our Championship game last night, Reading easily overcame Peterborough by three goals to one with championship scoring machine, Swift getting the opener and it's to the Championship we return to today for the game between...
It seems we again are looking at two teams who are struggling a little in the opening weeks of the season; Swansea sit in 20th on 5 points whilst Millwall are in 17th on 6 points. With crowds filling the stands once more, home advantage will again come into play in what will be a tight contest.
Both teams played out draws on Saturday with Millwall's being the most impressive as they were away to high-flying West Brom. Swansea totally outplayed Hull but their poor form in front of goal let them badly down. After reaching the play-offs last season, it was strange to see them bring in a new coach and Russell Martin has said that it will take a little time to get into full flow. Let's hope that 'little' means the first 6!
Millwall played well at the weekend with new Liverpool loanee, Ojo playing 80mins and they were confident and attacking. If they carry the form over, there might be a solid chance of taking the points tonight.
Prediction: Swansea 0 : 2 Millwall - First goal scorer: Smith

The Small Print
In the first goal scorer 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...
Two of you got the first goal scorer (as well as me!) and so its a huge shout-out to @jfang003 and @yeckingo1 who split the 5.5K pot, taking 2750 tokens each. No one got the correct score so the pot carries over.
