The Taming of the Shoe!

Post by Mr T » Sun Apr 23, 2017 6:08 pm

This Sunday will be our 62nd, and final, competitive game of the season, and hopefully Mr Simon Eastwood will complete the match to top an amazing return to Oxford. The Boot will be set Tue evening/Wed morning, after the Port Vale/Walsall game has been played, as that result will have a bearing on some of the questions...

After Port Vale scored a late winner at Walsall, the bottom of League 1 suddenly becomes more interesting, though Shrewsbury's goal difference is far superior to Vale's, but an 8-0 win for Oxford...

Your final Boot of 2016-17:
One point for each correct answer.
1 How many changes to Oxford's starting XI at Millwall?
2 Will Oxford win, lose or draw?
3 How many goals will the mighty Yellows amass?
4 How many goals will the visitors from Salop dare to get?
5 Will Junior Brown score?!
6 Who will finish 6th in League 1; Millwall, Southend or Rochdale?
7 How many points off the Play-Offs will Oxford finish?
8 Who will be the final team relegated; Port Vale, Gillingham, Bury or Shrewsbury?

TB Total attendance (usual rules)

Due to the silly kick off time (12 noon indeed!), could all entries be in by 10am Sunday morning? Ta!
Good luck everyone...
