Rays funds for the Academy with the Pink un Pickers.

Recommended Posts

I think I have the final picks! It wasn''t easy and you PUPs certainly gave me lots to think about. Four really seemed to stand out, the final two places were harder. I know it''s an international weekend but alot of them, I feel, are a bit tricky. So I''ve gone with what I think are the most likely!

CROATIA v. Liechtenstein (Fellas, Inch High, Scooby, Graham Humphrey, Mr. Bump and methcanary)

STEVENAGE v. Gateshead (ncfcstar, Mandie Moo and Hissing Sid)

HUDDERSFIELD v. Wycombe (Yankee Canary, Beauseant, The Butler, Delia''s Devonshire Dirtbox, Camuldonum, norfolkchance1, Kathy, cityangel, Hughesy, DionDublin=Legend and GMF)

RHYL v. Caersws (Leeds Canary, Trent Canary, newyorkcanary and NCFCShaun) This is my pick too!

COLCHESTER v. Exeter (Brendan and First Wazzock)

BARNET v. Hereford (lappinitup)

Sorry if I missed anyone. No Norwich, but I can never bring myself to pick them!

The bad news (or good news) is that I am out all day tomorrow and won''t be back until late, so I will have no idea how it''s all going. Maybe ignorance is bliss! But I know you PUPs will be keeping a close eye on it.

Marvelous set of picks there Cosmic. I just knew you were the right PUP for this different but interesting week. These selections must surely give you an outstanding chance of adding your name to Ray''s line of fame and raising some more funds for FONCY.[Y]

I''ll get these to Billy in the morning and post the odds on here. Good luck everyone..... [:)]....

Sorry for my tardiness this week, pesky work always seems to get in the way of far more important things. This week, I would merely like to add my weight to the welsh cause. So....Rhyl vs Caerws - home winGood luck everyone! [:D]

Good morning Pups… The bet is on with Dixmar Racing, so thanks to our good friends Cosmic and Billy Dixon we have...

 


1/18 Croatia
2/5 Stevenage
4/9       Huddersfield
1/5 Rhyl
8/13 Colchester
10/11 Barnet

 

 

 

Which will win for the Academy £68.99p.  As always I ran the same bet through one of the big bookies and the return would only be £58.30 which just goes to show why we should bet with Billy. So don’t forget that the best odds on all the weekend football are available to each and every one of  us so if you are doing a line today or even fancy these give Billy a ring!
Thanks again Cosmic. These selections really look good to me. They are all this afternoon so we shall know our fate by teatime.

 

So now it’s "game on" and we start with Huddersfield who have a lunchtime kick-off at 12:05 then Rhyl get underway at 2:30. Barnet, Colchester and Stevenage all start at 3pm and we finish with Croatia at 4:30.

 


Good luck moji prijatelji

Err yeah sorry about that. No internet at home so I sneaked on here during a quiet five minutes at work this morning and picked something that looked popular. Didn''t realise it was the early kick off until I heard the score when I was driving home at 2 o'' clock [:$].

Anyway I''ve managed to get onto another computer (thanks Mum [:D]) and as most of the games have kicked off already there''s not much left to choose from. So I''ll go for Brazil to beat England.

Hard luck with Colchester, although cant say im too disappointed with that result. A very tough week, usually the internationals give us a couple of dead certs but with the exception of Croatia there wasnt a lot to go on.

Whoops - bang goes my quad-trick of napped draws in quite spectacular style - I actually thought I was in with a shout - even at 2-1 to Charlton[:$]. Unlucky - a tough week.[:@]

That was cruel Cosmic. Two draws let us down. The same two results let me down today. But what a brave effort and thankyou for making the final selections in what turned out to be a very difficult week. I hope you enjoyed it despite the bad luck.

I''ll be back later with our stats[Y]

Am I still able to pick? I have been really busy all week and have only just remembered about this.

So if I can I will have to go with the only Sunday fixture:

Southampton vs Brighton - HOME WIN.

Cheers & unlucky Cosmic.

Oh well! [:^)]

I got back in time yesterday to watch the League Show not knowing any football scores only to have my optimism disappear pretty rapidly after the Colchester game! At least the four picks I was pretty happy with came in and I''m quite pleased with 4/6. I really enjoyed my week in charge and I want to thank all you PUPs for your help.

Best of luck to whoever is in charge next week!

That''s the first time I''ve ever got two picks right in a week [;)]

Unlucky Cosmic, that was a really difficult week to pick from.

60 PUPs picked this week with 49 getting their selections correct making a success rate of 82% which is one of the best we ever had. But this rather disguises what a difficult week it actually was because we only managed to give Cosmic 22 different naps to consider and only 13 (69%) were correct. But still it was another great effort from our army of PUPs but just one of those weeks where it was extremely difficult to put six winners together.

 

As Astro pointed out his attempt to predict four successive draws went down in spectacular fashion but Nana stepped up and called one correctly[Y] Could young Nana be Astro’s apprentice[:^)] If we ever end up with 8 draws selected I’m going to do the pools![:O]

 

Thank you Cosmic for such a magnificent effort. I’m glad you enjoyed the week. I certainly did. It was difficult but we were still close in the end. And thanks all you PUPs for such great support again.

Well because he had such a good success rate with his draws, i just had to try it [;)]

Astro''s was unlucky with this weeks nap as on paper there was no seperating the teams (but there was on the pitch), and it was almost the same as what I went for [;)]
