Hunkered down
Only a few weeks to go now and discarded questions litter the floor of my office and in the boxes marked by the question selection panel:

"Not Fit For Purpose"

"Far Too Easy For Cerebral Exeweb Quizzers"

"Total Turd"

More generally these points need some advance consideration:

1. Will STURTZ put Christmas shopping before trying to win ?

2. Will the Spoonzmeister win again or will he be too busy crafting his Music Quiz thread snorter ?

3. Will the consistent Mr Dozen step up on his 3rd place last year ?

4. Will Lionel strike for a 4th time or even rock up at all ?

5. The Hound is looking fit but can he shake off the advancing years and mount a serious challenge ?

6. Which Exewebber(s) will take pleasure with the Quizmater's choice of Glamorous Assistant ?

7. Will old favourites Graeme Power, Scott Golbourne, Kents Cavern and Semper Fidelis pitch up ?

8. With Big Brett retired, hopelessly overweight and unfit, to which ref(s) will the Quizmater turn ?

9. Will Swanny serve up the usual warm up question for Greyhound to slot away ?

10. How many Prime Ministers will we have over the period of the Quiz ?

11. Will FBH rear up at the avalanche of questions on obscure street names in small villages and long closed pubs ?

12. How many Exewebbers will score with "their" question. Assuming they will appear as a question at all of course.

The answers to all of these questions and lots more will be known come Christmas.

Yes , it’ll be good to have some distraction from burning effigies of Putin in the garden to keep warm in between jogging round the block and reading Russian Christmas cracker jokes like ‘ Sergeant, check the personal file of conscript Petrov again, will you. After every target practice, he wipes his fingerprints from the weapon.’
Exciting times ahead as we luxuriate under our electric blankets trying desperately to work out who scored off his arse in the 1929 season to secure ninth place in Third Division South. 🥳🥳🥳

Only a few weeks to go now and discarded questions litter the floor of my office and in the boxes marked by the question selection panel:

"Not Fit For Purpose" - Nicky Ajose

"Far Too Easy For Cerebral Exeweb Quizzers" Kents Cavern

"Total Turd" - Joe Auguste

More generally these points need some advance consideration:

1. Will STURTZ put Christmas shopping before trying to win ? More Than Likely

2. Will the Spoonzmeister win again or will he be too busy crafting his Music Quiz thread snorter ? He will probably achieve both

3. Will the consistent Mr Dozen step up on his 3rd place last year ? I am primed like a coiled spring, now retired so I will have more time to work out the answers (providing Mrs Dozens list of duties has been dealt with)

4. Will Lionel strike for a 4th time or even rock up at all ? I predict another absence

5. The Hound is looking fit but can he shake off the advancing years and mount a serious challenge ? I am sure he has not been put out to stud just yet

6. Which Exewebber(s) will take pleasure with the Quizmater's choice of Glamorous Assistant ? Looking forward to the reveal

7. Will old favourites Graeme Power, Scott Golbourne, Kents Cavern and Semper Fidelis pitch up ? The new manager is very keen on Semper Fidelis and Grass of course

8. With Big Brett retired, hopelessly overweight and unfit, to which ref(s) will the Quizmater turn ? I am sure the pieman would come out of retirement for this annual event it would not be the same without him

9. Will Swanny serve up the usual warm up question for Greyhound to slot away ? Inevitable

10. How many Prime Ministers will we have over the period of the Quiz ? At least 3

11. Will FBH rear up at the avalanche of questions on obscure street names in small villages and long closed pubs ? Yes without doubt - ps Dont mention the line up at Liverpool away

12. How many Exewebbers will score with "their" question. Assuming they will appear as a question at all of course. Been there done that dont think I will appear again

The answers to all of these questions and lots more will be known come Christmas.

Trouble is , we’ll only be able to afford to put it on for a couple of hours each evening , hence the reference to running round the block.
