In what way?

getting a wrong answer scored only one point more Than some right answers. in some cases a wrong answer scored less.if a wrong answer should score a 100 points .I only got one question wrong but 3 people above me in the table got more wrong than me .so that really makes no sense

As far as I can see Mark Robins , Klas Ingesson , Paulo Di Canio and Dan Petrescu have only won 1 of the stated european trophies.

They've won the European Supercup or Intertoto Cup as well as one of the major trophies, but they weren't stipulated in the question - if they count, then Steve Nicol has won two as well.

I know but they were not the stated acceptable answers , if you're going to count the intertoto cup you might as well have the Finlux shield, Anglo Italian cup and Ibiza cup FFS.

Originally I intended to only count the ones stated. But when I re-read the way I'd phrased the question it wasn't 100% clear - so to be fair I allowed intertoto and UEFA super cup wins too. 

 

Steve Nicol did win the "super cup" with Liverpool in 1986, but that wasn't the UEFA Super Cup. It was an English Football League sponsored competition that was designed to boost the finances of clubs who were denied European qualification after Heysel.

 

Irony of ironies.... The scousers won it.

As I say, my original question wasn't clear enough.

 

The Super Cup and Intertoto are classed by UEFA as "major trophies" - so there you go.

Ultimately though, you didn't win - and changing the scoring still wouldn't have changed that.  So it doesn't matter.  

 

It's just a game.

 

And there's already too much bickering about Google - something we could never police - even if we wanted to.

 

Penalize wrong answers too heavily, and there's a greater risk of more people using Google.  So pick your poison.

My mistake, assumed it was the European Supercup just after they won the European Cup in 84.

Hi Neal. You gave Tamworth a correct 1 point scoring answer for Juan Cobian, but he didnt play 25 games for us - he was nowhere near that, only 9 league games.

 

Oi!

Referee's decision is final. Even if he makes a mistake.garymegson

Balls. Good catch, LGH.

 

When scored properly, Tamworth now ends up sandwiched between Suthy and S11. His final score becomes 282,240,000.

 

 

Booooo!

I was hoping that you would be relegated to below me so I would be third from bottom rather than second bottom.
