i need a really good one pls.
is Didier Drogba's cousin?
but the only player to score a hattrick in the Prem, Championship, league One, League Two (or their equivalents at the time), the League Cup, the FA Cup and internationally is Rob Earnshaw
Paul Ince is Nigel Benn's cousin
Jelle Van Damme is Kim Klijster's brother-in-law
I don't know why I'm focusing this around relatives...Let me think on.
in an international match?
(bonus clue - for Iceland)
There's only one SCOTT PARKER, only one SCOTT PAAAARKEEER !
William Gallas is the only player to have appeared for Arsenal, Tottenham and Chelsea. One other footballer has been signed to all three clubs. Who is he?
Clive Allen ?
Came to Palace in the swap deal with Kenny Sansom
But everyone knows it now.
But what is the biggest discrepancy in the amount of letters in the surname's of two players being substituted for each other in a Premier League match?
Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink and Geovanni? Second one doesn't seem short enough...
i never saw the answer
(Stelios) Giannakopoulos / Ba?
but that is a really shit question. Glad I don't go to your quizzes ...
Imre Varadi. His grandad was called Ollie.
A: Gil Scott-Heron
(Gil Heron was the footballer so you can't say his name, obviously, that would give the game away)
The only league club who's name is not a place.
What is the only league club whose name is made of letters that can't be coloured in
or if it is, it only is because the club already existed. But I assume it is a different answer.
The second one is a good question but can't be bothered to work it out!
The answer to the first might be Arsenal? But I thought that name came from Woolwich Arsenal, where the club was founded...
Yeah it's not arsenal
Woolwich is a place but the club is no longer called Woolwich Arsenal it is called Arsenal.
what is (probably) the only current english league club (other than arsenal) not to be named after an actual place
I mean you could argue that it's not a place like other teams, which are named after towns/cities/areas of cities, but it's still a place that it's named after...
Question should really be "which are the only two league teams in England not named after settlements?"
I had always assumed Port Vale was some grim industrial port city like Grimsby up north somewhere!
English league. Not spurs, not Michael Owen
trick question, the answer is yes
Which player has won the Premier League, F.A. Cup, Champions League and the U.E.F.A. Cup?
that was stupid
is he the only one?
But sorry I forgot the olympics medal too (see above)
...and olympic gold
In which European city was Wankdorf?
Name three Italian international footballers whose surname doesn't end in a vowel!
(There may well be more than three, but it usually takes people a while to come up with a third)
that's the easy one
This is a tricky one.... I'm not going to be able to sleep tonight for thinking of answers...
Great player on Football Manager 2011 :)
i just realised that he's emerged since i first came across this question a few years ago. Let's say you need four then...
(the one i'm thinking of played in the early 90's)
was a quality striker who played for Inter and AC scoring loads of goals, but never actually played for Italy. Was that who you were thinking of?
We have a winner!
Well done guys. I love that question.
Not early 90s though :(
Too tired - would never have the wood one?!
Berwick Rangers in Scotland
The New Saints (based in Oswestry) in the Welsh Prem
Only team in Britain with a J in their name?
Quickest red card in an English league game?
Kevin Pressman 12 seconds into Wolves v Sheffield Wednesday on the opening day of the 00-01 season.
I like it as that fact is a keepsake of the first game I ever saw :P
that have won Champions League/European Cup without ever winning a medal himself
El Fenomeno Ronaldo (Barcelona, Real Madrid, Milan, Internazionale, PSV Eindhoven)
Hans Lincolinshire Sausage
don't remember the others, did they play for Oldham / Swindon?
The other three I made up.
Mark Fish, Mark Robins?!
Ruel Fox too.
Foxmeat. Does this exist?
I wouldn't eat Jess The Cat
Lee Cattermole - Cat and Mole! Not sure if either are actually eaten....
Never in the Prem though :(
erm... ROBIN van Persie.
But there are probably lots more!
I'll get my coat.
(no doubt someone will produce an actual answer to that question)
- a (England) Test match
- an (England) international football game
- and an FA Cup final
They are The Oval and Bramall Lane
The Marchester derby, the Merseyside derby and the North London derby, and has won the Champions League, The European Championship, the Premiership and the FA Cup?
This question may be made more difficult by leaving out the European Championship, so it's just club honours..
the North London, Merseyside & Milan derbies?
Which player has played in the Merseyside, North London, Manchester and North East derbies?
tring to do the Premier League top scorers A-Z. ie, the top scorer for each letter of the alphabet - 'A' being Anelka, to get you started.
There are some real zingers in there..
whos the only player to score for all the teams in the conference south?
whos the only team who have never won the world cup?
these questions often make me weep.
Probably my favourite trivia question ever.
who is the only player to have more number 1's than the beatles.
Spurs FA Cup & Scotland World Cup 82. Is your one Steven Pressley?
when he was a kid
