London Road Bovver Boot

Post by Hog » Wed Sep 27, 2017 8:42 pm

Looks like the Boot is in the same fine fettle as the team! Only four bothered on Tuesday!

Anyway, points mean prizes.

1. Will OUFC avoid defeat? (1pt)
2. Will OUFC score? (1pt)
3. Will OUFC score first? (1pt)
4. How many will OUFC score? (If you are correct you get a point for each goal, if you correctly say none that scores 1pt)
5. How many will OUFC concede? (If you are correct you get a point for each goal, if you correctly say none that scores 2pts)
6. At the end of play how many points will OUFC be above the relegation zone? (If correct you get a point per point)
TB. Number of OUFC fans (also predict total crowd in case OUFC figure not published before midday on Monday). No repeats on either, if still a tie earlier post wins.

Um, the 'old' question setting format was The Hat which had the same questions every week. Someone* thought that wasn't varied enough and started a second game where the weekly winner was tasked with coming up with ever changing questions to add the variety not available in The Hat. They named it The Boot. They ran happily alongside one another for a couple of seasons until whoever ran The Hat could no longer afford the time to keep the score and it stopped. The beauty of The Boot is that whoever sets it has to mark it too so it's up to them how much difficulty they want to cause themselves!

*Can anybody remember who this was? I can! :lol:
