Rays Funds for the CSF with the Pink un Pickers Season 14 Week 1

Recommended Posts

Welcome to Rays Funds, supported by Turner European Consulting and Kare Plus.

Let's start this new season with a look back to a great day three years ago...

 

 

As is customary our reigning champion is in charge on the first week. So we have @Kathy picking the six results. Kathy, who finished last season with an amazing total of 36/37 97% winning picks. Kathy became the first PUP to do the double by also winning the profitability league on +7.97. Kathy also has three previous wins when making the six so we’re in great hands for the first week. But we know the early weeks can be notoriously difficult and of course we are still playing behind closed doors. So Kathy will need our very best selection from the games played on Saturday, Sunday and Monday of this weekend that are listed on the Bet 365 web site.

Thanks to our generous anonymous benefactor PUPanon the Norwich game stakes are once again covered for the eigth successive season. First up for the Norwich picks against Huddersfield is @norfolkngood. Norfolk is signed up for the season for the first time and I know he’ll be an asset to our great team of PUPs. So let’s welcome him with some great suggestions for our opening game. Norfolk, you have a tenner to spend split how you like between the PUPs selections and your own. If you’re not sure of anything just ask on this thread or you can message me, and please enjoy the experience because all us PUPs are fully behind you and having fun is what we’re all about. Please leave a pick for Kathy too.

 

Thanks the 26 who have sent a tenner so far. Although we do need the tenners to get through the season this is not pay to play so if you want to give it a go just join in and post some picks.

Here’s the final selections rotas for the early weeks : -

19/09/20 – Indy - Confirmed

26/09/20 – First Wazzock - Confirmed

17/10/20 – Felixfan - Confirmed

24/10/20 – NFN FC - Confirmed 

Please let me know with your selections if the dates are ok.

As always a massive thank-you to our benefactor PUPanon for making the Norwich match picks possible. Also to all the Pink Un posters who send me pledges and donations. And to our sponsors Turner European Consulting and Kare Plus. Their money all goes straight into the presentation pot. The CSF and our DS and Pan-disability boys and girls really appreciate this support. For more information on our sponsors take a look at their websites below:-

Good to see this thread back as it means the start of the new season!

I'm going to go for Liverpool to beat Leeds, a bit of wishful thinking there maybe, but on paper they should win!

For the match bet I'm going for a 3-1 win to us, with Pukki scoring the first goal.

Good luck to everyone, especially Kathy and Norfolkngood.

Good luck to everyone!

How good is it to be back? Once again, massive thanks to Nutty for putting all this together for another season. The video in the OP is wonderful and to witness these guys loving their football truly is something to cherish.

To business. Sweden are well under way with their Allsvenskan, so I'm going with this Sunday offering...

Hammarby (3-5-1 13-9 at home) vs Helsingborg (0-4-5 7-19 away) - Home Win.

For the match bet, Jordan Hugill to score the last goal.

Best of luck Kathy, NorfolknGood and all you PUPs.

As Nutty says it doesn’t seem five minutes since we were doing this last season. 

I’ve been tasked with the unenviable task of trying to find six winners on the first day of the season. Happy days!

Lady Luck certainly shone in me last season but that’s unlikely to happen again so I’m going to need as much help from you PUPs as possible.

I’m going far out to my homeland for a Slavia Prague away win to Perdubice. After a two wins early this season 6-0 and then 3-0 got to be a good bet.

Hate to go with a Score Draw for Norwich or Godfrey To Score anytime.

Good luck to all.

Yessss, we're back! I'm going to do my damnedest to post my pick every week this season, as I've been a bit of a flake for the past couple of years.

It's going to be a really tough ask to get a winning six in the current circumstances, but if anyone can do it then @Kathy  can! I'm going to offer Ajax as my banker this weekend; they're 1/5 to start off with a win away to Sparta Rotterdam. Quite short odds for an away win, but home advantage is obviously diminished in the absence of full stadia and the gulf between the two squads is colossal.

As for @norfolkngood's wagers on the Norwich match, I really like @Wacky Waving Inflatable Arm Flailing Tube Man's shout of Dowell to score the first goal at 9/1, but embellish that with a scorecast of Dowell first goal and Norwich win 3-2, and you're looking at 300/1. Enticing.

Good luck, everybody... may the football gods smile upon us this weekend.

Hi all, it's good to be back! 💪

I'll go to Germany this week in the DFB Cup with Schweinfurt 05 vs. Schalke 04 (away win).

For the City bet I'll go for the Dereham Dreamboat to open his account early and score the first goal (Cantwell to score first).

Nutty, I'm off on staycation next week in the wilds so will leave my selection for the w/e 19th Sept here.

Final 6 - Finland, RoPs vs. KuPs (away win).

City Bet - Pukki to bag a brace vs. PNE.

Good luck and all the best everyone! 💛💚

Good to have this back and well supported.

My pick is a home win for Port Vale.

As for City I will go for a score draw with Onel scoring first - so many players to choose from, the usual freak result syndrome in the first weekend and some pressure  to avoid a 13th consecutive defeat as the relegation hangover hovers overhead

Yay, we're back. Thanks again to the hard working nutty nigel and the ever generous PUPanon for keeping this great thread going strong.

I'm starting off in League One where I think Sunderland will have too much for Bristol Rovers so...

Sunderland v Bristol Rovers......Home win.

For our game...

City to win 3-1 @ 18/1

Good luck Kathy and Norfolkngood.

The best thread on the board is back up and running! 😀 thanks again to nutty for all your hard work administrating this thread, I don’t think any of us pups could do as good a job 👏🏻
 

week 1 always tough. The Scottish prem has been in action for a few weeks now so I’ll go for RANGERS HOME WIN

 

for the match bet, I’m feeling confident Norwich to win 4-1 

 

Wishing everyone good luck for the season ahead 🤞🏻💛💚

 

P.S Nutty £20 will be on its way soon. £10 for rays funds & a £10 donation. Is your PayPal still the same?

Not to nose into someone else's pick, but I noticed PSG lost tonight because 7 of their stars tested positive(Mbappe, Neymar, DiMaria etc) for corona and did not play. They seemed to dominate the game, but lost after their 3rd choice keeper gave the ball straight to the opposition. The players testing positive was reported about 7 days ago so they might play against Marseille.

No internet access to speak of to do my usual research that sends nutty scurrying to the far corners of the football world, so I will go for Norwich City to win away at Huddersfield Town, and Dowell as an anytime goalscorer.

Good luck to all!

As a relatively new member to the board I don't know how this works... do we just ping in bets that we think will win, or what? Could someone explain, please?
