For those of you that have seen Only Connect you'll know how this game works. For those of you that haven't instructions are as follows:

 

Taken from wiki:

Each team receives a wall of 16 clues and must figure out a perfect solution, consisting of four groups of four connected items. The puzzles are designed to suggest more connections than actually exist, and some clues appear to fit into more than one category. Teams score 1 point for each group found within 2 minutes 30 seconds. They try to create one group at a time, and may make unlimited guesses on the first two groups. Once two groups have been identified, they only have three chances to identify the remaining two groups.

 

Basically, you'll see a grid with 16 words, within this grid are 4 groups of 4, they could be connected in many different ways. The aim is to sort the wall by into the 4 groups.

Once you've sorted the groups or ran out of time the wall will automatically solve itself and you'll be asked to name each catergory, so the answers below would be NFL teams, Football nicknames, Beyonce songs and First Person shooters.

It's very simple but worth understanding before you have a go.

Too easy? Difficult?

 

It seems very good - I'm just checking that it's watertight at the moment!

Got the Wilson and Hirst connections but not the other two

The connection for Wilson plus three is a bit off. As all 16 played for Wednesday the "played for" element of any connection is superfluous, and due to the automated nature of the scoring results in an erroneous "incorrect" score.

Yeah but there's supposed to be cross overs across the categories, if I'd just put 4 managers there it'd have been too easy. 

 

As for the scoring of the second part, don't pay too much attention to that, you know if you got it right or not so can give yourself the point even if it says incorrect.
