I didn't realise when I started doing a bonus question each week how hard it'd be to keep thinking up new ones... so instead of me regurgitating the same ones with slight variations each week, does anyone have any suggestions for some good bonus questions?

Cheers guys Cool

How many goals one particular match will have (not result/not one of the listed games)

How many more (or less) goals home teams will score over weekend in one division compared to away teams

Bookings (red card = 2 Yellows) in a powderkeg game (like Derby/Forest or Swansea/Cardiff)

Total points earned that weekend by teams starting (the week/weekend) in relegation zones - or promotion places

How about asking;

How many teams beginning with A will score/how many goals/red card/attendance if at home etc.?

Then list all teams in the football league beginning with that letter so there is no confusion - like for AFC Bournemouth, is it an A or is it a B?

Then each week you can ask for a different letter, giving you about 20 weeks worth of questions and they can be different questions, not just how many goals each week, the end of the question can be varied so it's not the same all of the time.

And if there any letters with only one or 2 teams, add it to another letter like how many teams beginning with F and H etc.
