Win £100 Whilst Watching Chelsea Game

A month into our partnership with Picklive and at present ‘Urchany Reds’ is on track for the £100 prize after signing up for free. His score of 52 is good, but definitely beatable. So with this in mind, why not visit RoM Picklive and give the game a crack. And for those who have already signed up, you still have a month to beat the winning score.

Picklive is traditional fantasy football on acid, games last just five minutes and you play in real-time during televised matches. Simply pick the three players who you believe will influence the action the most and watch them accumulate points for everything they do; from passes and tackles, to goals and assists. The three teams with the most points during each five minute game will bag a share of the cashpot.

The game is transforming the way that fans across the country watch live football, and by clicking here you can become part of the revolution for free. And if you do so, then take head from this friendly insider’s advice from Picklive:

Top United Pick


Picking wingers can be an extremely risky strategy on Picklive, as they invariably drift in and out of games. However with Nani, it is definitely a gamble worth taking. It is nigh on impossible for defenders to keep him out of the action, and his direct approach and insatiable work rate will see him earning points for shooting as often he will for winning corners. Even in defeat at Molyneaux he earned a whopping 130 points, and would have top scored for United without his goal.

Top Chelsea Pick

David Luiz

Chelsea’s less controversial new signing’s debut in blue, was also his Picklive debut. He looked assured all evening in the clash with Fulham and in the process amassed 101 points over the whole game – a rare feat indeed for a defender. By completing 63 passes and 27 interceptions he showed himself not to be one shying away from the thick of the action, and this quality will be crucial against the league leaders.

One to Avoid


The lightweight midfielder has come under fire this season, with many questioning the wisdom of his acquisition. It may be that we are yet to see the best of him on these shores, however against the battle hardened Scholes and Fletcher, he will do little to confound his critics tonight. What makes him an even less worthwhile choice his poor timing of the tackle; in the blues FA Cup defeat against Everton he lost 19 points through ill discipline.

One RoM reader is guaranteed the £100 prize and it’s free to play. Give it a go. Join the RoM Picklive league. If you invite your friends to join (via Facebook) and they play past their three free games, £5 will be deposited in to your account.

  5. giggs11gerrard0 says:


    They are indeed, well I hope so :-)

  6. radzio says:

    You can watch this great game here:

    Streams will be available 15 – 30 before kickoff

  7. Nafooy says:

    Chelski’s official site say they are as well. Just checked.

    Can’t wait. Our lads should be all fired up for this one.

    Giggsy should be available, no?

  8. willierednut says:

    RVP out for 3 weeks and Kelly for the dippers out for a month. Nice to see, It’s not just us, that are suffering from injuries.

  9. giggs11gerrard0 says:

    Giggs is availble tonight

  10. xol says:

    Sorry to be pedantic but lol, ‘And if you do so, then take head from this friendly insider’s advice from Picklive:’

  11. utdforever says:

    Carrick’s gonna have the game of his life tonight..

  12. willierednut says:

    Right Costas, your adoring public await the team news?

  13. TonyBee says:


    Have I missed anything lads….


  14. the scottish wonder says:


    i think you are right except for O´Shea will start instead of Rafael

    but who knows we could be way off

  15. Costas says:

    Saw this on tweeter:

    Rumoured #mufc team tonight – Van der Sar, Smalling, Vidic, Rafael, Evra, Carrick, Scholes, Giggs, Nani, Rooney, Berbatov. Confirmed soon.

  16. Ryandunny says:

    United are unchanged from wigan!

  17. Costas says:

    That would be an interesting line up. Fergie didn’t start Fletch at the Community Shield either.

  18. 11am says:

    Un changed side, first time since may 2008!

  19. Ryandunny says:


    O Shea

  20. redbob says:

    DoronSalomon Doron Salomon
    Confirmed #MUFC bench: PIG, Brown, Berba, Giggs, Rafael, Fabio, Gibson
    33 seconds ago

    #mufc 442 – VDS; OShea, Vidic, Smalling, Evra; Fletcher, Scholes, Carrick, Nani; Rooney, Hernandez – or I suppose that could be Rooney left

  21. Costas says:

    Ok. Ryan is right. According to Nick Coppack, UNited are unchanged for the first time in 157 games!

  22. willierednut says:

    9 out of 11 for me. The berbatov exclusion is puzzling, though.

  23. Costas says:

    Gutted for Berba getting benched again, but you can’t disagree with Little Pea starting. I just hope that if we need a goal, Berbatov can come of the bench and score like Hernandez does.

  24. TonyBee says:


  25. Costas says:

    Sorry for the confusion guys.


    It’s quite disheartening, especially when you look at Rooney’s form. Only explanation I can come up with, is that Rooney will play on the wing.

  26. Scholes>>>Giggs says:

    United playing 5-3-2 actually.
    When you all will finally accept that Carrick is Central defender?

  27. TonyBee says:

    costas ….or maybe midfield to force Essien on a back foot

  28. MG says:

    No change – what a laugh that is :)

    First time in 165 matches Costas ;)

  29. Chukzy says:

    Time to paint stamford bridge red.and replace the london sun with the manchester united logo .COME ON RED’s YOU CAN DO IT.!

  30. Costas says:


    Yeah probably. Of course in a few weeks, we will wonder why Berba doesn’t score against the big clubs. Oh wait. He never plays against them.


    Yeah right. My mistake.

  31. TonyBee says:

    Might Berba be carrying a knock…..maybe SAF wants the enthusiasm of Chico to be replaced by the skill of Berba later on….
