First Goal - Season Two

Recommended Posts

The second edition of the FIRST GOAL competition. This will run til the end of the 2020/21 season (whenever that may be!)

Last season's winner was @Viva la FCB!


  • One game will be chosen by me, usually at least 48 hours before. 
  • Games chosen will be from any competition around the world, usually with some significance or a game of high importance if possible.
  • Players will get 3 points if they guess the correct minute of the game's first goal
    • If it is a 0-0 draw and you predict 'No goal scored', you will also get 3 points.  
  • Players will get 2 points if they are 1 minute out either way i.e. goal scored in 30th minute and predictions are for 29th or 31st minute.
  • Players will get 1 point if they are 2 minutes out either way i.e. goal scored in the 61st minute and predictions are for 59th, 60th, 62nd, or 63rd minute
  • The official goal-time will be taken from flashscores.com
  • It goes without saying that the more often you predict in the competition for each game the more likely you are to finish top! 

This original post will be kept up to date with the rankings and selected fixtures.

All you have to do is post the minute for each game in which you think the First Goal will be scored in - it really is that simple :) . You do not need to post which team, scorer or how the goal will be scored, just the minute!



Predictions made after kick-off will not count.

Jesus. Seems like a lot of people are really confident we're going to score in the first 20 mins or so.

Can't argue with that.

First game up and I forget to guess!

We have 3 opening winners though!

First goal was 4th minute by Mo Salah in the Liverpool vs Leeds game.

3rd minute please.

@Mel81x & @Bluebird Hewitt get 2 points each as they were 1 minute out.

@Deco picks up 1 point for being 2 minutes away :)
