The Pools did need skill, and depending on the football results there must have been some weeks that nobody won a penny.

Didn't they used to have a 'Pools Panel' during the closed season?

Of course in those days football was only played on Saturdays and Bank Holidays. There were no Sunday games and probably not many weekday games. Maybe footballers even had 'proper' jobs during the week then?
