WHO AM I. QUIZ

A place to chat about anything thats not football related. Most of the threads in here are completely pointless which is why people keep coming back and back. As the forum title suggests, feel free to make any post you want on any subject you wish. It also has Adult jokes (so be warned) which is the other reason people keep coming back.

Could clue 17 have references to the Moon landings or an act whereby the only outcome is a throat full of pubic hair?

I searched the corners of the brain (without help) for football playing brothers, googled them but nothing matched the 117/102...... Then googled "football brothers" and there's loads!! Too many and not enough time to trawl through. Great question though and over to the Wolf or Charnwood to get this one.

7. Even though my elder brother was a couple of years older, I made my international debut 9 years earlier than him. We did not play for the same countries. In fact, we played for countries we didn’t really want to. I couldn’t play for my country of choice whilst that country didn’t pick my brother.

No, it’s not Regis or Cunningham.

SORRY. MISTAKE. RE-EDIT.

1. I scored 102 goals in 117 appearances in my first spellwith this club . NOT 117 goals in 102 appearances. I re-joined the same club later on.... and scored more goals.

Apologies, Marko, if there was fruitless searching.

8. As a 17 year old I scored all 4 goals in a Cup quarter final 4-3 and broke hearts that day.
9. I moved abroad after my request for a £5 pound a week wage increase was rejected.
10. I became the first player to represent this country without never playing a league game there. The next player to do that was 42 years later in 2001.
11. I’ve never played for Ipswich, but I have a link to the club.
12. After a spell on the continent, I played under a Wolves legend.

an outstanding player from my era.

if correct clue11. I’ve never played for Ipswich, but I have a link to the club.could be interesting to know.

Yes... :)

His older brother Gerry played for Ipswich... and Hibs... and the USA. He was born in the USA and held dual nationality so could have played for Scotland or England.... but was not picked for either.
Joe was a Scot, but was ineligible to play for Scotland (at that time)as he was born in Liverpool ( to a Scottish mother and grew up in Scotland apart from the first few months of his life).
He was the first player to play for England who’d never played a league game in England before, playing in Scotland (for Hibs) and Italy( with Denis Law for Napoli) before later playing for Arsenal in England. Owen Hargreaves was the second player in 2001 who’d never played before in England.
