Two weeks is a long time in football, and indeed a fortnight ago Jaap Stam was still Reading manager as well to a 3-2 defeat to Norwich City. Nine people correctly predicted that the Canaries would take all three points, which isn’t all that surprising considering optimism levels were probably at an all-time low ahead of the trip to Carrow Road. However, no one got the scoreline spot on and there were no correct guesses for Mario Vrancic to score the game’s first goal. The updated leaderboard is below.
So today is the day that the Paul Clement era begins at the Madejski Stadium, and the 46-year-old’s first challenge is a clash with the Fake Hoops, aka Queens Park Rangers. All you have to do is guess the score of the game and say who you think will score the first goal in the comments below. A correct score earns two points, a correct result earns one point, as does a correct first goalscorer.
To get the ball rolling, I’m going for a 2-1 win to Reading, with Mo Barrow being the first goalscorer.
