  1. Well done to the generous soul who has given us this extra week - it's fitting we should have our champions picking one last time for the season. Congratulations on your victories and hopefully that will stand you in good stead for the weekend (no pressure)... Given the German influence on our club these days, a couple of picks from that country's leagues seems a fitting way to sign off. Bundesliga - Dortmund to beat Dusseldorf at home on Saturday and they will hope keep their chances of winning the title alive, as long as they get a favour from elsewhere. Dropping into 2. Bundesliga on Sunday, and promotion chasing Union Berlin to beat relegation-threatened Magdeburg, also at home. With rivals Paderborn and Hamburg playing each other they can really capitalise here. Although after a crazy weekend last time out where the seven teams immediately below leaders and champions Cologne all lost, approach with caution... Best of luck to our pickers this week - let's sign off a memorable season with another brilliant victory.
  2. I'm going for Bayern Munich to beat Hannover this week. For Norwich, it would be fitting for Pukki to score the final goal of the season. Well done everyone and thanks to Eddie and everyone who's donated money to the cause this season. Some superb results, both for the PUPs and the club. One of the best seasons ever, overall, I'd say. Hope to see some of you at Villa and on Monday for what will be a long but great weekend. As this is the last one, just a quick plug, if I may, for my fundraising for the Coastal Challenge walk for the CSF in June. This is 47 miles from Hunstanton to Cromer, and tonight I'm taking part in an overnight training walk which covers the entire 26 miles of Marriott's Way. If anyone is feeling generous even after all the donations and winnings this season, my fundraising page can be found at: https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/GrahamHumphrey Thanks all, good luck to all PUPs this weekend and I'm looking forward to doing it all again in August.
  3. Sorry for being late again - lots going on recently... Great set of picks and hopefully it will be a hugely productive weekend all round (and perhaps a few sore heads tomorrow). I'll take Dundee United to beat Falkirk while I am here. Best of luck to all PUPs - let's hope tonight is a good one.
  4. Bit late this week (fairly busy with other things, not least last night...). I may as well take Watford to win at Huddersfield. For Stoke on Monday I'd fancy Buendia to score. Good luck all.
  5. National League and promotion-chasing Solihull Moors to beat all-but-down Havant & Waterlooville. (That'll be 0-0 then...) For our game, draw HT/Norwich FT. Good luck to all PUPs...
  6. I am being a bit boring and opting for Celtic to beat Livingston this weekende (although given my recent record you may want to approach this with caution). Best of luck Mick and all PUPs. I'll try and make it for the presentation tomorrow morning.
  7. Italian Serie B this week and play-off chasing Cittadella (8th, 40 from 27) to beat relegation-threatened Padova (18th, 23 from 28). For our game, this one will be tough but I'm sure we'll stand up and be counted - Boro HT/Draw FT. Good luck everyone.
  8. Sorry for being so late, I've been very busy with other things. Good luck today Eddie and our BTTS guy (and everyone else of course). For the record I will opt for Spain to beat Norway also.
  9. Missed the Norwich bet again - I should probably make sure I get in a bit earlier. Good luck Kathy. Would be a good payday if your two long shots came in... Away from that, I'm going for Leyton Orient to beat Telford in the semi-final, first leg of the FA Trophy tomorrow (cue another 0-0 draw as I am getting good at picking those). Eddie - I'll try and make the Carrow Park presentation. Having already had the honour of representing the PUPs on the hallowed turf, I'd very much like others to experience it for themselves this time. If anyone thinks they might fancy it - go for it, it's great.
  10. Apologies for being late for the match bet, but at least I'm still useful for the final six... Bundesliga this week and Leipzig to beat Augsburg. Best of luck Kev, Rob and all PUPs.
  11. Hmm, that photo looks familiar...great day that one. Can you believe it was almost four years ago? So, for my fellow pitch invader Mandie this week, in an effort to end my run of 0-0 draws, I'm going to the Netherlands and leaders PSV to win away at struggling Excelsior. For the Norwich bet, we may have to grind this one out so draw HT/Norwich FT might be a good option. Best of luck to all PUPs.
  12. Off to the Austrian Bundesliga this week and AC Wolfsberger (in 5th) to beat Altach (second from bottom in 11th). For Norwich, a competitive and entertaining game should be on the horizon, so I think something like a 2-2 draw isn't too unlikely. Good luck everyone.
  13. Thanks for the plug Eddie. PUPs are already an extremely generous bunch but any donation - however small - anyone would like to spare for this would be brilliant. Training has already started - in fact, I'm up early tomorrow to go to Bolton and then up equally early Sunday to get a train to the coast for our next training walk. If that isn't dedication to both causes then I don't know what is. Back on topic, I think Rangers will beat St Johnstone this week. And for Norwich, I'll go for a simple both teams to score. Good luck everyone.
  14. This week I'm going to be dull and go for PSG to beat Bordeaux. Deftly swerving any mention of A Certain Sunday Lunchtime Match, I'll take Leipzig v Frankfurt as my BTTS pick. Best of luck to all PUPs.
  15. The Spanish second division for me this week, and Deportivo La Coruna, who are third and just two points off top spot, to beat Tenerife at home, who sit just three places and four points outside the bottom four. Tenerife have taken four points and haven't conceded a goal in their last two games, but only scoring 20 goals in 23 games should make it likely their recent progress will stall tomorrow evening. For our game - another comeback could be on the cards so I'll go for Leeds HT, Draw FT (something I'd happily settle for now). Best of luck to all PUPs.
