Great ... that's 60 in all - and that was my initial aim. Anything now is a bonus!


Just as a matter of interest, Paddy Power have the following teams as favourites in their relevant divisions;

Man City
Newcastle
Sheff Utd
Portsmouth
------ no National League given -
Celtic
Hibs
Barcelona
Bayern Munich
Juventus

Of course, may not mean anything at all as they are only watching the money; still, I'm sure they messed up both Leicester and Chelsea last year, probably Bournemouth as well!

If only you'd selected no-one for the National League.

Bravo Gibbon, or did you copy?!

The Oddschecker site gives Forest Green as the best option for the National League, at 7/2, very firm favourites ...
