Highland League doesn't count.

Nope, good thinking but they are internationally known as Glasgow Celtic.


This is going to do my nut in! I'm trying to go through every single team I know without looking! lol

Fill in the missing gap:
    1979: Sunderland
    1980: ???
    1981: Villa


No takers?

Which player has scored at two world cups for different countries?

As well as Prosinecki, you could have Klinsmann, Voller, Matthaus or, if you count penalties, Riedle. All scored for West Germany in 1990 and Germany in 1994.

Had to look up the Sunderland/Villa one. Very good.

Which is the only Premiership or Football League club which contains no letters with closed paths (i.e. in which none of the letters can be 'coloured in')? I think the answer is the same in both lower case and upper case.

I believe there's only one league team in Britain, whose name doesn't contain any of the letters from the word 'football' in it - which team am I talking about? Very Happy

Dundee?

And I think Celtic should be allowed, as despite being known internationally as 'Glasgow Celtic', it's not actually their name...

Well done.

Here's a tough one...

At the 1988 European Championships, two of the teams' captains played for the same club side. Who were the players, and which was the club?

The same thing happened at the 1992 European Championships. Who were the captains and which was the club this time?

Unless I totally missed the point of the question, 'Celtic' and 'football' both contain the letter L...?

And T.

We're not very clever here, are we?


Edit: Are you sure, Neil? I thought they were officially "The Celtic Football Club"?

Doesn't look like it so here's the answer in spoiler tags in case anyone is still trying to get it:

Spoiler:
Brooking. They are the names of the scorers of the winning goals in the FA Cup finals of those years.

No action here for a while. Here's another one then:

Which English football clubs are furthest north, south, east and west?
That is, the location of their stadiums.
