Simple premise, before every Premier League Gamesweek (GW), you have to pick ONE player who you think will score the quickest goal in that GW.

The rules :

- The quickest goal is determined as the earliest goal scored in the earliest minute of all the matches across the games week. The date of the match is irrelevant.

- You get ONE pick per GW

- You can pick any player you want, it doesn’t matter if someone else has the same pick.

- Your choice MUST be made from the games listed in the Gamesweek (GW) in the Original Post (OP). If the game isn’t listed, tough.

- Scoring goes as follows :

100 points = correctly guess the goalscorer
25 points = correctly guess the team
10 points = correctly guess the match

- If the first goal is an Own Goal, the same scoring as above will apply.

- Your submission for 1st goalscorer MUST BE IN BEFORE KICK-OFF ON THE FIRST GAME OF THE GW

- All points will be accumulative across the whole season.

Post an interesting and/or amusing GIF

This one really cracks me up for some reason


The Gaming Thread,2010:index.php/forum/viewthread/.537 2010-10-12T14:46:01Z Guillem Bauza's Gap Year in Hereford We’ve had a few FIFA and FM/CM threads, but how about games outside of the football circle?  Anyone nerd it up on a regular occasion like myself?

The end of October/start of November is going to cost me a big chunk of my pay cheque - Rock Band 3 (£65 for a keytar is jokes.. but it is a keytar..), Fable 3, Force Unleashed 2, Fallout New Vegas, FM 2011, OH MY.

The Official 2018 World Cup Build-Up Thread,2017:index.php/forum/viewthread/.9687 2017-11-16T09:27:07Z 2017-11-16T10:11:33Z Hank Scorpio It’s the greatest 31 days in the calendar, the wonderful month that makes the previous 47 shitfests worth living through, it’s (as of now) exactly THIRTY-ONE weeks until la Coupe du Monde, die Weltmeisterschaft, la Copa Mundial, the 21st World Cup. Forget your tedious, perpetually disappointing club side and enjoy the true peak of football - 64 glorious games of fast-kicking, low-scoring, and ties.

As a reminder, the countries competing to be crowned the greatest nation on Earth will be:
UEFA: Russia, England, Germany, Spain, Portugal, France, Serbia, Belgium, Croatia, Sweden, Switzerland, Denmark, Poland, Iceland
CONMEBOL: Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay, Colombia, Peru

Will add any more important information as and when it becomes available but for now: kit chat, squad chat, big player injury chat, pre-tournament friendly chat, sticker album chat. Get. It. In. Here.

(As if I was ever going to let anyone else start this thread)

Peter Crouch - Newspaper Columnist,2017:index.php/forum/viewthread/.9688 2017-11-17T19:40:21Z 2017-11-17T19:42:26Z Sid Peter’s got himself a column in the Daily Mail, usually footballers columns aren’t worth reading, but I think his may be different.

Shame about the choice of paper.

I never thought I’d get to see Wonderwall played live again in my lifetime, so being four rows from the front was an experience — even if it wasn’t for the people behind me!

I can’t see a “Peter was talking to X” so it seems he’s literally writing it himself.

The Championship roll call - 2016/17 thread,2016:index.php/forum/viewthread/.9478 2016-08-05T22:25:48Z 2016-08-18T19:17:17Z big mean bunny So I wanted to make a thread (for obvious reason) who do we have that are patrons of the championship and it’s sides? I know we have some newcastle fans but who else

bmb - Wolves (Italy’s biggest UK team…apparently)
Shandy - Newcastle
Hillface - Fulham
Randy Baton - Villa
Tummy, EighteenSixty7 - Owls of Sheffield
Gerard Francis Mullet - QPR
Slumdog Willianaire - Derby
Nige - Norwich
David Clucas, Morten Gramps Pedersen - Blackburn

Sammer is already complaining that the world cups only purpose is to weaken Bayerns start into the season, because they are the only team with international players. Other managers agreed and said “it’s our only chance to hurt them”. Great mentality.
Jürgen Klopp said he doesn’t want to sell any players, Bayern said they don’t want to buy any players, so Reus will probably be in the red and blue shirt by the end of the week.
Köln is back.
Paderborn is also a team apparently.
Wolfsburg are setting themselves up to be disappointing again and are unable to buy a striker.
The Kicker is rating the Bundesliga players again, are very harsh. (Only defender who is world class is Mats Hummels, Jerome Boateng is “actually not a player of international class”)

It’s going to be great.

Currently listening to…,2014:index.php/forum/viewthread/.8613 2014-07-10T11:52:57Z Juan Flo Evra I’m sure this used to be a thread, can’t find it though…

Anyway :



The Technology Thread,2015:index.php/forum/viewthread/.8886 2015-01-12T21:55:29Z Yours, mine, leave it I couldn’t find a technology thread so i thought i’d start one to ask this question (apologies if there is already one but i’m being blind)...

Me and my flatmates bought a new tv recently and it was delivered today. It’s a 40 inch 4K LCD tv. I’ve just been flicking through some channels and i’ve noticed that when there is any kind of fast movement or the like, the picture sometimes appears to go slightly blocky or flicky. I’ve never actually owned a HD tv (I know, i’m a dinosaur) and this is probably the first time i’ve noticed something like this even after watching friends HD tvs. Is this a normal thing or is the picture setting?
