  7. Barrett's a cert for first goal according to w hill's

    Bookie William Hill seem to think that the returning Adam Barrett is a certainty to score the first goal at Oxford offering odds of 1/100 :omg: So if you put your £100 on him and he does score the first you will be richly rewarded picking up £101 when you collect your winnings! Yes an error in...

    You Choose! Predictions for Second Round of FA CUP

    As we are out of the Cup we have no fixture on the 6th December (unless something is late re-arranged) so the question is do we give predicting a miss or predict even though we are not involved? If we give a miss we will reduce this session from 13 to 12 sets of fixtures. If we miss the...

    As many don't predict till late it is difficult to judge how many will be taking part in the coming session but we should have 30 taking part in Division One and 30 plus in Division Two. Clearly from the recent poll the majority want three Divisions not two so this is the plan. Ideally I think...
