Competition Time!

To celebrate the return of the Premier League this coming weekend, we’ve teamed up with our friends at to give you the chance to win a £30 voucher for use over on the Classic11 website. With a huge range of vintage football shirts available, you’re bound to have your eyes on something if you browse through the collection.

To stand a chance of winning the prize, all you need to do is guess the score of Everton vs Tottenham…as played out on CM9798.

To give you a chance, here are the lineups for the game. I’ll record the whole game and upload it in case you want to re-live the action. I’ll also ask you to name who you think the first goalscorer will be and the time of the first goal just to act as tiebreakers in the event that more than one of you guess the score correctly.

How do I enter?

All you need to do is retweet this tweet and reply with your prediction, e.g. 6-6 Beardsley 31. If you don’t retweet, your entry won’t be counted.

Here are the teams…


For those interested in this sort of thing, the database hasn’t been touched and the managers are the late Howard Kendall and Christian Gross. The eagle eyed amongst you will notice both teams have made a few signings to try and improve their fortunes from the real life 97/98 season.

Get your predictions in now! Entries close on Saturday 13th August at 12pm UK time.

Warning! Boring explanation below:

How the tiebreak works

Let’s say two entrants predict the correct score. Everybody else is essentially eliminated at this point, leaving just the two correct entrants. If either entrant has got the correct first goalscorer, they will win. If both do, or indeed neither of you do, then it’ll go to your time of first goal guess. Whoever is closer will win. In the event that both entrants are equally incorrect (e.g. it is 80th and entrant said 75th and the other 85th) then the winner will be decided by a coin toss and I will question ever running something like this again.
