Rays Funds for the CSF with the Pink un Pickers Week 40

Recommended Posts

Welcome to week forty, the

penultimate week of our Rays Funds season. In charge of the six results this

week we have Crabbycanary making the final selections for the first time. Crabby

has done brilliantly selecting in this his first full season. He was really

consistent early on and at half way looked a real threat to the top PUPs in our

main league and was top of the profitability league. I’ve seen enough to know

Crabby will be a real threat next season and he has proved to be a great asset

to this wonderful team of PUPs. Crabby already has his name on Ray’s signature

having won twice with the match bet. I think Crabby has a great chance of

getting us back to winning ways so please give him your very best selections

from the games played on Sat/Sun/Mon of this weekend that are listed on the William Hill or Bet365 web site.

 

After I was unable to get any

new recruits for the Manchester United game I was grateful to Norfolkbroadslim

for volunteering to step up to the plate. Slim is our current champion having

had the PUPs league in his pocket for a couple of weeks now. I’m really looking

forward to what you come up with buddy. You have a tenner to spend choosing

from the PUPs selections and your own.

 

I’m

definitely running Rays Funds at the Euros. It''s a fiver to enter with £2.50

going straight into our presentation pot and you PUPs who enter each choosing £2.50

worth of pre-tournament bets. All the money won will also go to the

presentation pot and the shirt will go to the PUP who wins most money. Entries can

come from anywhere in the world because the shirt can be posted. I will make a separate

thread for this at the end of the season.

 

 

Now I’ll hand the thread over

to Crabbycanary and Norfolkbroadslim. Remember theres 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 Jeff and Richard ... the thread

is yours....... [:)]..........

Good luck Crabby Canary & Norfolkbroadslim - let''s hope we can manage a couple of winning selections.  To that end I have the following obvious results:
Sunderland - Chelsea to draw, unfortunately, at 5/2.
Norwich to win 3-1, (why not?), at 40/1.
To calibrate these you may have noticed that I don''t appear on either of Nutty''s tables ......

Thank you for the invite, and intro Nutty. Have you been speaking to Mrs Crabby? It''s uncanny you talking about my good start and then fading away, that''s all.

I will pass on my thoughts to you, on Friday evening, if that is ok?

Many thanks for the opportunity Nutty.I have a bit of a strategy, well a broad strategy which I''ll refine over today and tomorrow.  I am probably going to go something along the lines of a few safe ones, where hopefully I''ll cover enough to win at least something, perhaps then a couple of medium risks, and definitely a few very, very long shots, where even a 50pm stake would yield a very good return.I mentioned in last week''s thread I had a bit of a premonition about the game.  It''s probably nonsense, but the premonition was a very vivid image of Robert Fleck scoring against Man U.  Like I say it could be nonsense, or it could be interpreted in a few ways.  Perhaps the scoreline, Fleck scored both goals in the second half of a 2-0 win at home to Man U in January 1990.  He also scored a goal at Man U in 1988.  I am probably going to take it as the home game.  Perhaps not the score, but I think I might see the image of Fleck as representing our current, not very tall, blonde haired Scottish forward, Naismith.For my pick this week for Crabby''s final 6, I might go for something totally wild (I have something in mind) in a desperate bid to reach the top of the profitability table.Anyway, enough rambling for now, good luck everyone, especially Crabby.  [Y]

Russian League: Anzhi v Zenit - away win.Zenit are in 4th but still only four points off the top, so will be desperate to keep their title hopes alive. Anzhi are rock bottom with only one home win all season.For the match bet, I''m afraid I can''t see a rejuvenated United slipping up in their quest for the Champions League, so I''ll go with United to win and both teams to score at 3/1.Good luck all!

I''m picking the Accrington game for the 3rd time in recent weeks. They''re 2nd but still not got automatic promotion so they''ll be going for the win against Stevenage, who are safe in 19th. Home win is 1/3.

For the Norwich bet, a repeat of the result at Old Trafford, i.e. a 2-1 win for us.

Best of luck to Crabby and NBS, and all PUPs all over the world.

I''m also going for a home win for Rosenborg v. Stabaek.

Rosenborg are W4 D0 L0 F9 A0 at home and Stabaek are W0 D1 L3 F3 A8 away.

Good Luck, Crabbycanary3!

As for the Norwich bet ~ still sticking with Howson to score any time.

Good Luck, norfolkbroadslim!

Off to Azerbaijan this week for:

Qarabag vs Sumqayit - Home win

Norwich still have it in them to survive. Pre-season I felt that they would scrape 17th, representing great success.

Looking at the actualite'' the stage is set, it is probably a position we would have taken: maybe two wins from the last 3 games to survive, two points to make up with a game in hand.

I think a point on Saturday against United is a good result, paving the way for two end-of-season wins, so:

Norwich vs United - Draw

Good luck to Champion ''slim and Crabby...

Parma 💰🇮🇹🍝😘🎉👌👏👊🏼

In-form Scunthorpe desperately need a big win at Sheffield Utd on Sunday to keep their play-off dream alive so I''m expecting just that to keep the pressure on Barnsley.Sheffield Utd v Scunthorpe........Away win.

For the Norwich game........City to win and Russell Martin to score.

Good luck Crabby and nbs. [Y]

I had been contemplating a trip to Azerbaijan but Parma got there first! So to the Nordost-Nord section of the German Oberliga.Hansa Rostock II to win at home against FC Frankfurt.Hansa Rostock II, with a 10-0-2 and 37/5 home record, still have a good chance of taking the one promtion place. FC Frankfurt, with a 2-1-9 and 12/30 away record, are close to being relegated. They did have a 4-0 win recently, but that was against the bottom team. Form generally points to a home win here, as reflected in the odds of 1/8.---For the NCFC bet I suggest Mbokani to come on and score the last goal, at 17/2.Good luck to all!

Right, guys and girls. Thank you very much for all your assistance and suggestions, I really did appreciate it.

Using the power of the PuPs, I have drawn on their knowledge and I have decided that I would like the following to be my selection please Nutty;

Charlton v Burnley (away win for Burnley)

Rosenborg to beat Stabaek

Athletico Madrid to win away at Levante

Real Zaragoza to beat Bilbao B

West Ham to beat Swansea

Hansa Rostock II to beat FC Frankfurt

I must admit, I certainly liked Molly''s selections, and I admire the cut of your jib Molly, and I so wish for your selections to come true!

I really hope these can earn some cash for a great cause.

Whilst on, I would like to register a draw in our game tomorrow

Sunderland vs CHELSEA - Away win.

Sunderland are crap. Pressure is off Chelsea. 7/5 is huge, normally Chelsea would be about 4/6 for this fixture.

For the Norwich bet....at 8/1 I can''t stray much past a Norwich win and both teams to score nod.

If both my selections come in, I''ll have a decent weekend.

Good Luck all.
