Re: Roch Valley Dance Shoes

UOOOU
In a turnout as low as Dale's away support, most of us lost -1 on possession.

Hoglette 0
Hog +1
AColi +2
Geoff +3
leaving Radley - the only one going Under on possession - on +4 points.

Ramble onwards ...

Roch Valley Dance Shoes

(Apparently that's a "thing"). Unders and overs. Point for correct. You may add a joker to double your score on a question, but a penalty of -1 will be imposed if you are wrong. BBC website for statistics (1) Oxford possession: (U) 51% or less (O) 52% or more; (2) Oxford shots: (U) Ten or fewer (O) ...

Medway up the leg

OK, simplicity and back to 50p in the kitty, winner takes all (which was the original idea, wasn't it?):

Name the first Oxford scorer ("no-one" is a permissible answer). No repeats.

TB: time of first goal in the match (if equidistant, earlier time wins).

Re: For the want of a nailsworth, the shoe was lost

So this is why bookmakers make money and punters lose.

Everyone is -£10 except:
Geoff (nett break even),
Radley (nett plus £7.50) and
Me (nett plus £17.50)

(Bookie is up £16, 22% return on £70 turnover - I don't think I've ever run a betting boot where the bookie hasn't come out on top)

Sorry.
