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.

I only guessed Cyrille Regis as he came from French Guiana,and a striker, could be miles away from who it is mate.

To be honest Marco, Regis was a quality player but was never going to last long at the Mol.

OK, try this one.


I played in 2 FA Cup finals at Wembley over 2 decades.
I scored a winning goal v England
I won 5 international caps for my country.
My Country's manager at the time was Bobby Brown.

CLUE 2..

He played for Southampton in their victorious 1976 FA Cup Final against his former employers Manchester United and made the pass that set up Bobby Stokes for the only goal. He also appeared in the 1966 FA Cup Final for Sheffield Wednesday in a 3–2 defeat by Everton, and scored one of the Owls' goals.

close enough Saint, Jimmy McCalliog. that was a great final from start to finish. think Mike Trebilcock scored twice and that picture of him wearing that coppers hat..
he played for us back in the good all days. Waggy on one wing and Jimmy Mac on the other wing.

It occured before you were born Mark. Just to add, that aforementioned final was a game to remember, probably the best FA Cup Final seen at the national stadium until Coventry in '87

Being quick, here is another personality to find :


#1 I was once a World Champion

#2 I reached near legendary status

#3 My life story was a rise and fall

#4 Another countryman also won a title around the same time as myself

#5 I met with a tragic end

#6 Only certain generations can really appreciate what I brought to my profession

this could be a tough one Saint. but my first guess is

Alex Higgins. Probably wrong as question 2 says “ I reached near legendary status” I looked on him as a legend.

I was once a World Champion..
1972 and 1982 World Snooker Championship.

#2 I reached near legendary status

#3 My life story was a rise and fall..

#4 Another countryman also won a title around the same time as myself...
Dennis Taylor Northern Ireland

#5 I met with a tragic end
Died of Cancer.

#6 Only certain generations can really appreciate what I brought to my profession

Try this one.

I was born in a town named after a vegetable in Staffordshire.

I am right handed.

I won my first World Championship in 1980. and my last in 1986.

I was awarded the MBE for my services to sport.

Are you kidding me that was a right response.

In any event, we'll continue


#1 I can often be associated with particular colors

#2 I looked out of place for a time when someone signed me up

#3 I have played in major final events

#4 I have won the biggest prize my continent has to offer at domestic level

#5 My domestic achievements are perhaps more recognized than my international

#6 People will look back in retrospect and wonder how I was part of a team that did so badly
