If you're new to this, it's easy to play, tricky to win! A range of bets (no more than 7) is posted on the thread, take a look and see what you fancy, one bet per week on one or multiple outcomes.

The figures to the left of each column are decimal odds, and if successful you win your stake multiplied by the odds. If you bring in a multiple bet, the stake is multiplied by the odds on each successful outcome.

You should post your bets before kick-off of the earliest match that you have selected. If you miss the Saturday matches, there's usually a Sunday (or occasionally a Monday) match you can bet on. I've included one of the Friday matches this week, but that's a bit of a one-off as there aren't many matches on Sunday.

I'll be about to answer any questions that anyone has, but if I'm inexplicably absent I'm sure that someone will step up and help out.
