Recommended Posts

DO NOT POST ANSWERS IN THIS THREAD!

 

Welcome to the second Wednesday quiz in the new Trivia and Quizzes section. 

 

Many of you will be familiar with the rules but for those who aren't please see rules below.

Subject: Sheffield Wednesday's Global Reach

 

Rules
- Each question must be answered with a valid answer for that question. Any answer that is invalid will receive the maximum score for that question.
- All questions must be answered, not answering a question will receive the maximum score for that question.
- Answers that are completely wrong will receive the maximum score for that question.
- You must PM me your answers BY 5pm (BST) ON SUNDAY 16TH OCTOBER,
 DO NOT post your answers in this thread!
- Wikipedia/Google used at your own discretion. It allowed to be used it's totally up to you but where's the fun in that - as the song goes, if you use fkg Google you're a blade.

Scoring
- Scoring will be done after all entries are received.
- The score given for each question will be equal to the number of players with that same answer (example: If the question was to name a vowel and 3 people say E while 8 people said A those who said E will be scored 3 for that answer while those who said A will be scored 8).
- The final score will be the product of the scores (example: if there were 3 questions and your scores were 3, 8 and 7 your final score would be 3 * 8 * 7 = 168).
- The winner is the player with the lowest final score.

Could only think of one answer for Q4  and two for Q3, and not really sure what the Fairs Cup is so instead played 'name a European team'.

 

Expecting millions here.

 

Also answered Q10 before reading the clarification, so picked the most obvious one there too.

I can, but I felt it was better to add the second post for clarity.

Really struggled to think of any "good" answers. I think they're all correct but played safe with pretty much every one.

I had a complete blank on this. Couldn't think of anyone for about 25 minutes. Still not 100% sure. Went for the only person I could think of.

So I thought I'd best check my answer after reading this, and the guy I thought would have scored about 40 goals in fact has 23.

 

STILL COUNTS

FFS got number 10 wrong :sad: (all 3 on my maybe list were as it turns out)

Also got number 8 wrong, right team, wrong competition. 

 

On a more positive note I'm delighted with my answer for number 1.

I've got numbers 8 & 10 right but I'd assume they're both pretty popular.

 

Some of these questions must have really limited answers though. Should be some high scores even with every answer correct.
