Rays Funds Week 27 Such Sad News *Please Read*

Recommended Posts

Top of my shortlist was Cosmic''s pick of Covadonga, which looks like an excellent choice, with a team in form against one very much out of it, so I will head to the Dutch Eredivisie, and AZ to win at home against Roda JC.AZ, third, have a 7-0-3 and 21/12 home record, while Roda JC, one from bottom, have a 1-0-9 and 9/28 away record. Both played in the cup in midweek, but AZ''s game was on Wednesday, while Roda JC played a day later.The current odds are 1/5.Good luck to all!---Nutty, I don''t want to overburden you but I could put together a Tilly-style set of six later this evening.

[quote user="TIL 1010"]Good evening Nutty in such a sad week for us PUPs. A tragedy to lose Michelle at such a young age and is surely the saddest time for us since the passing of Ray Ducker. No doubt that they both will be watching down on this thread and hope it continues to thrive under your stewardship Nutty assisted by all us lovely PUPs.My thoughts are with Ian and the rest of the family as no number of words can begin to describe their loss.Onwards and upwards this week with Snake and KC and my pick is a HOME WIN for ASTON VILLA v Burton.For the Norwich bet 0-0.In memory of Michelle i will ask you Nutty to please put £10 on these picks from me which i hope will turn into a few more quid for the pot which i know Michelle would approve of being such a staunch supporter of our efforts with the CSF.FULHAM to beat Forest at home.WIGAN to beat Gillingham at home.JUVENTUS to beat Sassuolo at home.AJAX to beat NAC Breda at home.NAPOLI to beat Benevento away.BAYERN MUNICH to beat Mainz away.[/quote]

[quote user="Kathy "]I was thinking something similar last night Nutty if Ian was in agreement.

We could be on for a record week stake wise and that would be so fitting.

I''d like to chip in as well. Put a fiver on the draw and a fiver on Middlesboro for me. That way we cant lose. If City win we''ll all be happy including Michelle watching from up above, if we don''t there''ll be some more money in the pot. I''ll give you a tenner after the game tomorrow.[/quote]
This is a plan Kathy! I''m going to double this for my contribution but put the ten on Norwich in a joint bet with you. So we are now assured of a return tomorrow. I''ve placed them where it''s most profitable and we have....

I''m very sorry to hear about Michelle passing away. This is real downer for this week, but by all accounts she always had a smile on her face, so maybe we should remember that.Best wishes to all those close to her at what must be a difficult time.

Mexico: Necaxa vs Toluca, draw @ 3.30.

Love these Purple and thank you for doing them. The Greek game does not seem to be listed on Bet365. It''s on Bill Hill but then some of the others are not on Bill Hill. I could wait overnight to see if Panachaiki appears but we could risk losing something else that is listed now. What do you think?

Had some really enjoyable times with Ian and Michelle . Despite all the ups and downs following city she always raised a smile, stayed calm and simply looked forward to the next game.

Sincere condolences to loved ones, family and friends .

R.I.P Chelle.

What an emotional day. Just so many different emotions. In heartbreaking circumstances we see so much of what''s special about you PUPs, fans and our great club. I spent time with Ian and Sam and I know they felt the love from everyone. The 52nd minute was a brilliant tribute to Chelle who was so loved by so many but especially Ian and family. There are no more words and the events of the day speak louder than words anyway.
Well done Kingo! You were an act well worth waiting for. £36.46 is a great return. You''re becoming a real asset to our team so please come back with your picks as often as possible. We need you.
Really unlucky Snake. Schalke were winning but had a man sent off so conceded two in the last ten minutes. The other 3 today all won so we''ll keep an eye on this. If we end up with five I''m hoping the free bet will kick in. 
Well done Kathy too. Between us we managed to get £28 into what I''m hoping will be a permanent part of Rays Funds to celebrate and remember Chellecity with love. 
Tilly''s and Yankee''s six are still running. Fulham, Wigan and Munich all won today. So we need Juve, Ajax and Napoli tomorrow. Let''s be ready with PUP power for them.
Purple''s brave effort appears to have been thwarted by the girls from Fiorentina. I''m not 100% sure though because there''s no results for that and another game on my app.
We had more bad luck with the free bets anonymously secured for us as all three ended up going down by just one result.
Ian gave me a fiver today to put on Sporting tomorrow. I''vematched it so we have....

Sporting

£10 Bet

365

9/20

£14.50

Of course we still have over £100 and I''ve spoken to Ian with some ideas. We will formulate a plan over the next week and I will keep all of you informed. Thanks to everyone who sent funds for this weekend, I''m hoping we have a permanent part of Rays Funds in loving memory of Chelle.
