Rays Funds for the CSF with the Pink un Pickers Week 39

Recommended Posts

Greetings PUPs

and welcome to week thirty nine, the penultimate week of this wonderful Rays

Funds season. This week I get to introduce another legend because it’s DDD in

charge of the final six selections. Formerly known as Delia’s Devonshire

Dirtbox, DDD has been with us since the very start when his posts used to keep

us entertained and Ray rated him highly. Of course back then Ben lived in Devon

but still came back for some games and I was pleased to meet him on some of

those occasions. Since then he’s moved back to Norwich and has become a friend

to me and my family and a very popular member of our community in the Nelson on

match days. DDD was also a member of our quiz team at the CSF quiz last year

and is always one of the first to support anything we do as a group. And he''s a previous

final six winner so I believe Ben has what it takes to get us back to winning

ways. But to do so he will need all our help so let’s give him our very best

selections from the games played on Sat/Sun/Mon

of this weekend and listed on the Bill

Hill or Bet 365 web sites
.

 

 

Alongside DDD,

one of our longest serving PUPs, we have one of our newest recruits, Josh

Linton, selecting the match bets for our game against Fulham. Thanks to our

anonymous benefactor it’s now possible for PUPs to play a more active part

sooner than they would if they had to wait, for what must seem like an

eternity, to get a go with the final six matches. Welcoming new PUPs is one of

the most pleasurable parts of administrating these threads for you because they

help ensure the long term future of our community. So good luck with these

Josh, all us PUPs are right behind with our support. You have £6 to spend so you can choose up to six selections either from the

PUPs suggestions or of your own. Anything you’re not sure of just ask and

someone will help. And please enjoy the experience and come back to help us

next week and next season.

 

 

Now I’ll hand this week’s thread over to DDD and Josh Linton. Remember

there’s no pressure because we are all going to be doing our best to help you

to success. We all stand together with the single aim of raising money for the

Community Sports Foundation.

 

 

Good luck all

you PUPs... Take it away Ben and Josh ... the thread is yours.......

Good luck DDD, Josh and everyone else.

The odds for a Charlton win vs a hungover Bournemouth side look very attractive at 5/1 but, as usual, I''m going for a draw at 3/1.

For the Norwich bet my heart has overruled my head and I''m plumping for a 3-1 win at 11/1.

Good luck all, especially our pickers.

Wonder if Ben is the same "Ben" who lived next door to me in Tiverton back in late 80''s early 90''s, the whole family were Norwich mad, my son Ian said he had moved back to Norwich.

Back to business, my picks would be;

MK Dons to beat Yeovil

Norwich to win 3-0

Happy picking.

Thanks Eddie for the intro and good luck to all the pups with your picks this week, I shall be back Friday night to get in my final selections in.

Yep Gordon it''s the same Ben, small world, Ian said a few years ago you were living in the area and that you went to the football a lot together when he lived up this way, do you still go match days? My dad is retiring next year and is moving up this way as well, we''ve got season tickets next to each other. You''ll have to let me know if you want to join us for a pre match pint some time, be good to catch up, I''m still friends with Ian on Facebook and said he should come up for a game when he''s back on leave some time. Anyway back to the picks and good luck one and all

Brilliant stuff Lessingham and DDD. I think this is another great Rays Funds story. It certainly is a small world as I found out not so long ago when talking to Yankee and it turned out that I used to work with his brother. Ray would have loved all this[:)]

 

Talking of Facebook I haven''t linked it for a while but we do have our own Rays Funds group which is another way a lot of us keep in touch : -

 

https://www.facebook.com/groups/124098287639888/

 

For my pick I''m going for a Monday game again and this time in the PL where despite Hull''s recent revival I expect Arsenal to go there and win.

 

Hull City          v         Arsenal          Away Win

 

For the Norwich game I''m going with Gary Hooper to score 2 or more goals.

Hiya, my pick is from the Colombian Primera Division, 2nd plays 18th, Huila have a 9-5-3 record and Uniautonoma have a 3-5-9 record, so home win for Huila at odds of 1/4.

Good luck to DDD and all other PUPs.

Good Luck Ben mate - hope to see you at some point over this weekend!LYON v Evian - HOME WINAnd for Josh, I like the look of an "insurance" bet this week - given our recent record against Fulham.FULHAM to win is 13/2 with Bet365 or 6/1 with BillyHills so good value - especially if we have one eye on the playoffs.Leedscanary

Looking for a bit of value here so I''ll pick Forfar to beat Ayr.

Bit worried tomorrow might be a bit of a damp squib at FCR so I''ll do less than 2.5 goals for City''s game. Good luck Pete''s boy and Josh :)
