This week’s Hotshot Jackpot result will be a hard one to take for our players as Stoke’s Saido Berahino cost seven of them a shot at the £250,000 this weekend.
Big guns like Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Romelu Lukaku duly delivered the goods for our players, but it was the newest signing at the Britannia Stadium that cost our players dearly.
Ironically having wanted away from The Hawthorns for nearly every transfer window since his career began, it seemed written that he would return to West Brom in the opposing dressing room so quickly and hit the back of the net.

His 58th minute introduction drew the ire of the crowd as he made just his second appearance for the men from the Potteries.
However, he failed to trouble the scoreboard and, when all the weekend’s action was said and done, his blank cost seven Hotshot Jackpot players to the tune of over £35,000 each.
The striker’s performance may have be effected by reports of an FA ban served during the course of the season – while still at West Brom – and that has lead Stoke to accusing the West Midlands club of having more leaks than the White House.
Elsewhere, Pep Guardiola decision to only give star striker Sergio Aguero seven minutes on the field cost 49% of entrants to the game a shot at the prize. Jesus Pep, we know the new young chap is good but think of our players!
