New season, new thread, same game.

Rules
The same as ever, if you're unfamiliar then it's pretty straightforward: all you have to do is pick the player who you think will score the first goal in a given game.
If they score the first goal then you score 3 points, if they score any other goal then you score 1 point (points are non-cumulative, i.e. you don't score 4 points if your selection scores the first goal and another goal).
You can pick 'no goalscorer', in which case you score 3 points if the game finishes 0-0.
Own goals are ignored.
*New rule* Defender bonus (aka the markwwfc rule): if your pick is a defender and they score the first goal, then you score 4 points instead of the usual 3. Still just 1 point for other goals.

Past winners
2013/14: Jackinky
2014/15: Rammy

Rammy led throughout the whole of last season and won comfortably, he's definitely the man to beat this year.

yay this is back.

Think I've had two top 5 finishes, my aim is just to beat Rammy this year.

I shall revisit this on Friday.

I'm sure Rammy pipped me with a few weeks to spare last season.

Anyway,

1. Matias
2. Makienok

I'm still not believing that this Flint character exists until I see him with my own eyes.

You won't miss him - he's a huge feck-off chunk of meat. Looking at the height of the SW defence he stands a good chance of getting his head on the ball if they get near enough from set pieces.
