Rays Funds for the CSF with the Pink un Pickers Season 10 Week 2

Recommended Posts

Welcome to week two of our

tenth Rays Funds season. 50 PUPs selected last week! I was well chuffed with

that. And we managed a small win on the Norwich game thanks to 93v so we’re up

and running trying to get another great total for our wonderful Downes Syndrome

boys and girls.

 

This weekend Ali K is picking

the final six games for the very first time. Ali joined us during last season

as Van Wink and I’m pleased to say he stuck with us and is back this season

making the picks. Last season Ali finished with with 25/35 winning selections

and was in profit too. He already is named on Ray’s signature following his win

on the match bet last season so he’s already a great asset to our team. We can

all help him to further success by giving our 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.

 

Making the choices from the

Norwich match suggestions for our game against Sheffield Wednesday we have CanaryGirlLyn.

Lyndsey is an occasional poster but 

supports us every year. I’m really pleased she agreed to make these

picks. Lyndsey was part of the team PUPs who travelled to Wembley together last

year and she’s part of a family of PUPs, even her partner is a PUP. They’re all

huge supporters of this great community. Lyndsey, you have a tenner to spend

choosing from the PUPs selections and your own.

 

Thank

you all for your support and the tenners I’ve received so far. Rays Funds is

not pay to play but obviously I do need 40 tenners to get through the season.

If you’d like to send one my paypal is canaryeddie@aol.com or you can use that email to get my post address or I

will be in the Nelson after the Sheff Wed and Bristol City games.

Always tough to go on form so early in the season, but I think Sporting Lisbon to beat Maritimo at home should be relatively secure.Last season Sporting were 13-3-1 at home and finished second, while Maritimo were 3-3-11 away and finished lower mid-table. Additionally, Sporting have no midweek European commitments, so should be raring to go for the start of the season. Odds are around 1/4.For the match bet, Hoolahan to score any time and Norwich to win at 7/2.Good luck everyone!

Hi Nutty, could I possibly swap my pick on 17th September for another date (I''ll be on holiday in Greece, half way up a mountain, and not sure whether I''ll have internet access)?

This week I''ll go for Sweden and Gefle IF vs. IFK Norrkoping (away win).

For the match bet I''ll go for a Naismith double.

All the best everyone!

Well done to 93Vintage for the win on the City game and unlucky NN.Carlisle vs Plymouth and a home win at 11/8 for me This bet came close last week as he missed a free header in the 90th minute so will stick with it and have an old fashioned plump for Klose to score last and City to win at 35/1Good luck to all, especially Ali K and CanaryGirlLyn

[quote user="Shack Attack"]Hi Nutty. It''s been a while but I''d like to get back involved in this. Can I just make a pick tomorrow like the old days? Were you at Blackburn on Saturday? Got a feeling I may have seen you in The Golden Cup.[/quote]
You got it spot on Shack and I''m really glad to see you back on the Pink Un and especially these threads. Look out you contenders the Shack Attack is back in town[:)] [Y]
Wasn''t me at the Golden Cup. But I understand Duncan, Tilly, Graham and Daniel were there representing the PUPs. I don''t get away these days but I make all the home games and will be in the Nelson after if you get to Carrow Road.
Welcome back buddy[Y]
