DO NOT POST ANSWERS IN THIS THREAD - ANSWERS TO BE PM'd TO ME

 

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

 

Rules and scoring

- Scoring will be done after all entries are received

 

- The winner is the player with the lowest score

 

- You will be given an amount of points based on how many other people gave the same correct answer to a question (for example - if the question is 'Name a football ground in London', and you answer 'Stamford Bridge', you will get 1 point if you are the only person to give that answer, 2 points if 2 people give that answer, and so on)

 

- If you answer to a question is incorrect, you will receive as many points as there are entrants (for example, if the question is 'Name a football ground in London', and you answer 'Villa Park', you will get 8 points if there are 8 entrants, 9 points if there are 9 entrants, and so on - so make sure all your answers are correct!)

 

- Your final score will be the product of the scores (for example - if there were 3 questions and your scores were 3, 8 and 7 your final score would be 3 x 8 x 7 = 168).

 

- You must PM me your answers by noon GMT on Sunday June 3 - DO NOT post your answers in this thread!


- Wikipedia/Google used at your own discretion - if you use flipping Google you're a blade

2) Name any European nation that has hosted the World Cup

Is it safe to assume that Czecheslovakia and the Czech Republic are regarded as the same country, likewise USSR and Russia?

Yes. FIFA officially recognizes: 

 

Czech Republic as the continuation of Czechoslovakia.

 

Russia as the continuation of the USSR and CIS.

 

Germany as the continuation of both East and West Germany.

Good one that Neal. Think I've got them all correct, but some I only had an obvious answer for.

I’m guessing there will be few incorrect answers. I think the difficulty here will be trying to predict the less common answers. 

 

I’ve not looked at any of the entries yet, but I’m looking forward to seeing how people’s minds work.

At least 2 I've put the most obvious answer because it's all I know, just relying on everyone else to be clever.

Or is this a double bluff? lolIf not then relying on people like me to be clever is likely to be your downfall!

Cheers Neal, enjoyed that, but honestly thought mine would be the most replicated answers.

Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but for Q4 Daz scored 1 for France. Should have scored 3, which relegates him to second place.

Also bad news for Alan Harper and myself.

Thanks Neal,

 

Surprised Alexandersson never played in a World Cup whilst at us. I'd have won if he had :mad:.

Can't believe I put Mexico as a euro winner! Pretty sure I changed that from something else too.

 

Good one. Thanks
