Sheffield Wednesday Quiz #6 - The 1990s

Recommended Posts

DO NOT POST ANSWERS IN THIS THREAD!

 

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

Subject: The 1990's

 

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 MIDNIGHT SATURDAY 19TH ***NOVEMBER***,
 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.

 

IMPORTANT - All answers that require an answer from the 1990's must have happened from 01/01/1990 to 31/12/1999. If you choose something from the 1989/90 or 1999/2000 season be aware that if your answer creeps into a different decade this will be scored incorrect. (also don't miss question 12 below the second picture round!)

2. Name any country Chris Waddle played against for England (Senior caps only)

Thanks for all the answers.

 

Congratulations to @frastheowl who gets his first win and narrowly beats Kivo.

Top Row: Stuart Pearce, Des Walker, Paul Gascoigne, Peter Shilton, Gary Lineker, John Barnes

Bottom Row: Peter Beardsley, Gary Stevens, Bryan Robson, Terry Butcher

 

Can't be bothered to run through all the answers this time but my favourite was @frastheowl's terrific spot of Andy Dibble from the picture round.

Unfortunately EMF and Erasure didn't manage a number 1 in the 1990s and Lance Key's solitary appearance was in the FA Cup.

Damn, can't believe nobody went for Brentford for the league cup club, I thought a few would go for them being the earliest round so I went for Swindon instead. I'd have bladdy well won if I'd stuck to that.

 

Congrats Fras and thanks Whitechapel for the quiz.

Great quiz; probably my favourite yet. Thanks again, @Whitechapel Owl.

 

I'm happy with 4th place, but I wish I'd gone with one of the other players for that picture round! I thought Benali would be the most obscure of the ones I knew...clearly not.

Can't believe I won that. Felt sure there'd be at least one incorrect answer, between Waddle's England cap, Sheridan's Ireland cap and the away victory in the 90's. All three guesses to some an extent.

 

Nearly went for Lance Key on the goalkeeper aswell...

 

On another day, I could've easily finished last!

 

Good quiz though.
