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.

Wow! Probably should’ve known that.

Long story short from a few months ago down the pub on Easter Road, amongst the mates...... someone said “Name the famous 5. GO....”
Everyone apart from Big Nelly got stuck on a few......
Big Nelly: “f**king disgrace. Should be ashamed o yersels!”

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.
interesting that,

try this one

I was born in 1972
I played for my country at U17 / U18/ U21 and full International.
I played for club sides in France / Italy / Spain,
I played 155 times for a club I later managed to some major titles.

No that’s not the record, Wolfie. You must be thinking of Zig & Zag and “Never mind the Zogabongs!”

These international breaks drag. Here’s another one.

1. I was born in Manchester in 1943.
2. I had a boyhood friend who became a famous singer and TV star.
3. Most of my clubs were based in the North West, but I spent most of my career at one club in the Midlands.
4. On one afternoon in 1976, I entered into the Football League record books. I even beat George Best into second place that afternoon.
5. I share something in common with a current Derby County player.

agree it does drag, plus just when the Town get going as well.

anyway this looks a good question, must get the braincells into action before Blueblood or Mr Norris McWhirter Marco get here. :D

5. I never received a full international cap. It was said that I would have done so if Sir Alf hadn’t preferred his “wingless wonders”.
6. I did, however, represent the Football League versus the Scottish League.
7. The only major trophy I won was in a Wembley Cup Final against my former club.
8. I did win a divisional trophy when I beat an Aberdeen franchise team in the final.

the number 8 Question was clever. I did win a divisional trophy when I beat an Aberdeen franchise team in the final. I think we played them in the USA when we were the L A Wolves, cant remember what Aberdeen were called but I think Sir Alex was there manager, might be wrong

Yes :)

Don’t know if SirAlex was manager, but they were called The Whips I think.

That franchise American thing was interesting. Quite a lot of clubs had a team out there... Stoke had a team out there... the Stokers. I got the impression that happened in the pre-season ... between end and start of the new season. Probably a bit of a Busmans holiday. Waggy apparently met up with his childhood friend, Davy Jones of the Monkees, when he was out there.

I remember when we were over there, it was a massive trophy they brought back as winners. I have pictures of Davy Jones with the Wolves team. I thought the answer to that question was Robert Plant,

will try and find those pics

you were right.
Wolves won the championship beating the Whips 6–5 after 36 minutes of extra-time. Four goals were scored within a 4-minute period midway through the second half and each team scored during extra time. The game was decided after Whips defender Ally Shewan scored an own goal.[1]

you are right the Aberdeen manager was Eddie Turnbull not Sir Alex,

I was born in 1977 in Yorkshire.
I played for Leeds United but they was not my first club.
I also managed Leeds United at 2 different levels.
I was a striker up until I was moved to centre back by an ex Everton player.
