Summer Football Trivia - May

Post by MaddosMilkman » Fri May 03, 2013 12:45 pm

Right, I know I said I'd start this on Tuesday but I might as well start if off now with a bumper set of questions to get things going.

I'll ask questions on weekdays as I don't always have access to the Internet on a weekend and also because I'll probably run out of questions

Remember to send your answers to me via PM rather than replying on here.

Day one questions:

1) Who are the seven players to have made over 200 PL appearances for Newcastle? (One point per player - if you manage all seven I'll round it up to ten)

2) Who are the six Southampton players to have each made over 200 PL appearances? (same scoring method as question one)

3) Who is the only player to score two penalties in an FA Cup Final?

4) Which nine stadiums have hosted Premier League football and no longer exist? (again, same scoring as questions one and two)

5) Who is England's' all time leading goalscorer?

I got a couple of questions after I found a quizsheet I prepared years ago, so here goes, no points up for grabs.

1. Sunderland did it in 1979, Villa did it in 1981, who did it in 1980?
2. There is one letter of the alphabet that features in a British football name, but nobody elses, what is the letter and who are the team?
3. What did the Republic of Ireland do at Goodison Park in 1949?
4. What did Cardiff do in 1927 that nobody in Wales had done before and still have not done to this day?
5. What is significant about an International Friendly in 1938 when Nazi Germany played England?

One for fun...

What was Sir Alf Ramseys reason for not letting the players swap shirts after the 1966 World Cup Quarter Final clash with Argentina?

They're tough!

Number 3 I think I've got, assuming you mean a British football club name and no other British football club has the same letter in it's name?
