Fantastic mid-season offer

The modest number of users competing for The Boot would enjoy your company. This prestigious competition involves guessing a number of facts for each Oxford game. Examples would be who starts, who scores etc. It represents a heady mix of skill and luck. Entry is free. The only 'penalty' is that each...

Re: Kicking down the Keepmoat

All the thin field fell at the first fence.

My understanding of a cascade is that the spotlight then passes to Qu2 (all correct), Qu3 (all correct) and then Qu4 (OA falls again).
Qu5: Geoff falls.
Qu6: RR falls.

So it's Hog's boot!

Kicking down the Keepmoat

Set for Grandpont Tom due to time: Simple cascade - ie, a wrong answer to Qu1 eliminates you, then Qu2 etc until the survivor wins: 1. Will Oxford win, lose or draw? 2. Will Henry start? 3. Will Cadden start? 4. Will Fosu start? 5. Name an Oxford sub who plays 6. Will Dickie or Moore or Mousinho get...

Re: Capital clogs!

Harder than it looks:

0 pts: Hog, AC
1 pt: Boogie, Geoff
2 pts: OA, RR
5 pts: Grandpont Tom

An outstanding performance, Tom. You now need to set the next Boot at least 36 hours before Wednesday's game.
