in 1968, so the cardigan arms pub quiz told me last night.
no idea who won it first though...
Someone like that?
it was around then yes
he's somewhat of a tennis legend!
becker for sure
it was Rod Laver
62 (amateur) and 69 (pro)
as you know... your question.
Born 1958 in Singapore
Neither the baker nor candlestick maker
didnt he have trials for crewe?
It was pretty easy wasn't it
a tie between bamos and commandercool
though I think commandercool just edged it
name three footballers who have played for tottenham hotspur and ipswich town since 1990.
Was Ruel Fox at Ipswich?

And alan Brazil beforehand... also Tarrico

Good Cundy love in this thread though :)

Meths is on minus points for shouting out random answers and drowning out 'now that's what I call music 46' which is playing between rounds.
it's an easy number to remember from 2 weeks ago
or test him for traces of google
Post of the day
there are currently 2 world records held by british track and field athletes
Jonathan Edwards triple jump is one - what's the other and who holds the record!
a mean MALE athletes
Paula radcliffe has the marathon one obviously
Daley Thompson's Decathlon?
colin jackson 110m hurdles, isnt it?
and erm - I forgot about that one - so there actually is another because jackson's is a joint world record best
so, erm, that's not the answer on the card
im tempted to say steve backley, but im pretty sure its not.. otherwise im stumped.
Jointly held with some Chinese chap. BONUS??
dunno who. jason gardner?
a further clue
it's held by FOUR athletes
4x1500m relay. SHIZZLE.
but you're very close
4 x 800m
but I think i recall some massive finnish bloke practically chucking one out of the stadium in the mid-90's
it's not an olympic event
and the record was set in London in 1982
Regis, 300m or something?
I was sure I was right.
Alan Wells, 100 yard dash?
the 100 yard dash!
not an olympic track and field event..? that is difficult..
but that's not the whole answer
the first person to name 2 of the four wins
coe and cram?
the other two being peter elliot and garry cook in the earth shattering time of 7:03.89secs
your question Trampoline
was the first player to score more than 30 premiership goals in 3 successive seasons?
yep.. your go. :)
Chris Kiwomya at Spurs?
for the fastest century in One Day International history and how many balls did it take?
but I like to think it is Viv Richards, the greatest cricketer ever to walk the planet.
In, um, 46 balls
Viv was ace though.
I haven't got the foggiest about the amount of time. Erm...46?
I can't remember his name
but it was a pakistani guy in and it was in 38 balls or something
that's the one Bamos
now. I'm not guessing the number of balls all bloody afternoon! 34.
Are you giving it to me then?
If you get the chance to see it, it's very impressive. He was only 19 at the time too.
cos I have to go out for a bit!
Bamos - have my question
Lets go over there, shall we?
club to spend the season as fully-paid professionals in the Vauxhall (as it was) Conference?
barnets my team you cant have them!
but it is
Wycombe, as a guess?
fucking carlisle? yes that must be it!
you'll get it eventually
they haven't been in the conference for a while but they could get back in this season
Come on guys, Anschul's been to bloody Finland and back in the time you've had to answer this :)
they were both shut
I am loving this. ACES. Still no.
When it was the Vauxhall Conference, wasn't it only one team that went down?
Give us a clue: have they since come back up?
So, it happened when it was still the Vauxhall Conference?
but some wrong ones. Well, all wrong ones.
...I still can't really think who that must be.
Torquay? I'm not sure they ever went down, did they?
Y'all wanna know?
i would attempt a guess, but its probably already been made, and i cant be arsed to check against the last 70 odd posts.
note the sound of desperation as I type
in Hednesford as a guess. What a hole that place was/is.
^^^Up there somewhere. Come on voiceofthepeople, your public awaits...
i really wanted to get that
cmon! im going out in a minute...!
the previous question took about half an hour to answer. Now that would have made great TV
cos of work so off the top of me head:
First player to score a Premiership hat-trick?
or chris sutton
Anschul, the floor is yours.
Meths, have you got some sort of trivia tourettes?
Not really. Unless you graciously give me the next question. In which case yes, I do
WE HAVE A WINNER! THANK CHRIST THAT'S OVER.
as well as wikipedia, where the list of past conference teams i used to cheat was from.
For the 2001-2002 season, the club made the decision to go fully professional. This paid dividends when they went on to clinch the Conference title and promotion to the Football League. Boston were subject to an FA investigation in the summer of 2002, but proudly took their place in the Football League, drawing their first match 2-2 with AFC Bournemouth at York Street.
were full-time professionals in 1988 in the Conference, having chosen to remain full-time after relegation. Boston's decision to do so was different because they were one of the first clubs to get PROMOTION and then choose to go full-time. Shizzle.
copied and pasted the whole thing, this could have been over a lot faster..
beaten to it
Many sports are played on grass with a ball but which grass-and-ball based sport has the largest regulation playing area and which has the largest non-regulation playing area?
is the correct regulation area
what about non-regulation?
smallest = tennis

whats only team in english/scotish football league with an f in their name
i might have that wrong tho
east fife 4, forfar 5
and others i'd imagine
i meant a k. no didnt. oh fuck i cant rmemeber. someone else have a go
Or East Fife?
You've not thought this through.
or maybe its only in england
like i say, i concede
is that question, but it's Scotland, and the answer is St Johnstone.
I think you should reconsider your particpation in this thread.
*immeadiately commits suicide*
the only team with a J is St. Johnstone
Your prize is:
Ask the next question. GO!
might be quite easy...
Name the first 2 teams to qualify for the champions league group stage, having gone through all 3 qualifying rounds.
but who is the other one?
and not close
I think new threads are required
but i thought there were more than st. j
smallest = lawn tennis.
biggets = polo
wait a second... i take it golf doesnt count...
Non regulation: football at school. Didn't matter how far you went, it was never a throw in
for non regualtion
your go meths
i sort of said that a minute ago...lol
Because it made me smile and long to go outside in the sunshiiiiiiiine :)
