Pennock's pumps.

Post by Old Abingdonian » Mon Sep 04, 2017 7:32 pm

For each question, score three points if you get the answer absolutely correct. Score two points for +/- 1, and one point for +/- 2. So if you guess Ryan Ledson (8) and the answer is Wes Thomas (9), score 2 points. If no player meets the criterion, the question is void.

1. What will be the shirt number of the first Oxford scorer?*
2. What will be the number of the first Gillingham scorer?*
3. The number of the first Oxford player to be substituted?
4. The number of the first Gill to be substituted?
5. The number of the first Oxford substitute?
6. The number of the first Gillingham substitute?
7. The number of the first Oxford player to receive a card of any colour?
8. The number of the first Gill to receive a card of any colour?

*including any own goal.

TB: The time (BBC website) of the first substitution by either side. No repeats, the higher of two equidistant answers wins. Use 90 + 2 notation if you wish.

I'm sure I responded to my own boot, but must have pressed the wrong button!

I accepted 9 or 10 for the first Gillingham substitute, replaced by 14 or 27 (same minute in BBC record, can't remember who came onto the pitch first).

Anyway, a clear result:

Hog - 1 point
Hoglette - 6 pts
RR - 7 its
Geoff - a magnificent 12 points

so Geoff wins.

I don't think I've been called 'magnificent' before! :oops:
