Oops, nearly forgot. A zero research boot.
A new take on odds or evens (for our purposes, zero counts as even).
(a) Oxford shots  odd or even?
(b) Oxford goals  odd or even?
(c) Oxford possession  odd or even?
(d) Time of first substitution  odd or even? [subs in additional time in first half count as 45]
(e) Total corners in match  odd or even?
TB1: if the probability of odd = probability of even and events are independent, if you guess randomly, what is the probability of getting exactly three correct?
Precise answers only.
TB2: Time of first goal, if equidistant, earlier predicted time wins.

1. odd
2. Even
3. Odd
4. Even
5. Odd
TB1  Given that there is a spelling mistake in Q (c) thus potentially rendering that question invalid, I declare as Bootmeister that TB1 is invalid due to high chance of confusion for players.
TB2  27 minutes.

Re: Taming of the Shoes
As Boot setter, I declare your first answer invalid due to the lack of capitalisation.
The Rosencrantz and Guildernstern bid
1. Even
2. Even
3. Even
4. Even
5. Even
TB1: (for the record) 0.3125
TB2: 36

Re: Taming of the Shoes
If the probability of even is the same as the probability of odd, then the probability of all five being even is 0.03125
8 shots, 2 goals, 54% possession, 68th minute substitution ... 8 corners.
Geoff and Radley 2pt
AColi 5pt and nearest (if not very near) on TB2  and with the correct answer to TB1: it's a binomial expansion N! / (r! (Nr)!) p^r (1p)^(Nr)
I guess I'll set another one then and hope we have a few more entries. We're reaching the flogging a dead horse zone again, aren't we?
