Thanks a lot Gassey.

I don't know if I'll survive Sunday, I'll be soooo nervous!!!!!!!!

Barnsley and Burton have difficult away games against clubs with potential

play off hopes, can't see them winning, Bowton just need to get a win in.

Come on Bowton

Yes, you made a bit of a boo boo with Q9 didn't you?

I thought you may have got it since it isn't the usual 'football grounds' question.

Generally just as bad with anything to do with any sport. Embarassed   It's just the very odd one that I may have heard about, that I get right.

Put it into context though, 30 correct out of 32 is just brilliant quizzing.

That said, I don't think of it as a contest, it's just some friends having

a bit of fun and maybe gaining some knowledge
