    Just sent mine. Some good questions, but slightly easier this week IMO.

    Well done to deltablue :smartarse:

    I think it was more or less as challenging as last week, it's how I try and make it anyway.

    Looks like I'll be getting some tough questions for next week

    I thought I was coming last, so a sigh of relief from me.

    Look forward to answering these ones

    Not that I'm complaining, just my thoughts. As Chris Tarrant would say, 'It's only easy if you know the answer'

    I'll look like a right pillock if I only get two points now

    Wow! The Adelaide one was a complete guess, plus was unsure about the last coke one. Actually got lucky as I initially put down the beaten finalists for the FA cup question before soon realizing as I didn't send immediately. Just glad that my question isn't on the end of my West Brom stint as I had a feeling it would be. Round 2 looks much tougher.

    I'll be well annoyed if the answer isn't as it should be, especially after showing off by naming them all. That said definitely dropped a couple this time, didn't know the Cahill one would you believe?

    I disagree. There is the one from the two films. That's an important continuity. If not, then you should have reworded it! I'm putting it to the Quiz Omsbudsman!

    If I were to guess how many I got right this week, I'd probably put it around the 5 points mark.

    This week is definitely a harder set of questions.

    Transfer fee questions are a bit ambiguous though because they're mostly undisclosed fees that the press will guess at. For example, Jonas Gutierrez joined Newcastle and the press were quoting fees in the £11m bracket. When the financial results were eventually published for that year they showed there was no transfer fee as he moved under the Webster rule, him buying out his contract for a few million euro offset by a more generous signing on fee from us.

    Edit: Cahill's fee is indeed officially undisclosed.

    I did say for last weeks question I check every answer and if I can find some truth to it from any (legit) website I will accept the answers.

    If the question is more 'open' then I'll be more 'lenient' with the answers. If that makes sense.

    Sorry, should have made that much clearer.

    Fair enough, you are the all-powerful Quiz Master so totally happy to accept your judgement on answers! Just an interesting potential ambiguity as you could argue there's no incorrect answer to that question since the answer is unknown beyond educated guesswork.

    Also, when did most transfer fees start being undisclosed? It used to be rare but nowadays almost every transfer on the SSN ticker has "Undisc." next to it.

    Wanderers was never a football club, it was The Wanderers.

    Nobby stop being pedantic.

    Thought you weren't one for full football names anyway? ;)

    And some people put Marshall Mathers II so it would have been incredibly harsh to mark them down wrong for that.

    Hear Hear (though technically that would be 'Jr'), generally I approve of a slightly open approach to answers, even those where as someone knowledgable on the subject (Doctor Who) I know there's only 1 'true' answer so won't mind if others are also allowed.

    Nope, I always think about how it's almost time as Tuesday approaches, and how everything will be up when I'm home from college in the evening, especially before the first day but also applies to since.

    So deltablue is still on top but ssestig is making life hard with a last minute entry of the full 12 points meaning I've got to change the bonus question! Although I have highlight Flamers who had a strong start last week with 9pts but seemed to be all over the place this week with just 2pts!

    Default Round 2 - The good and the not so good answers

    Bury Town (Flamers) – Even if you do wish he managed them, it wasn’t the best guess in the World was it?

    Pluto missing Earth (kris0710) – You put 8 planets down but one of them wasn’t Earth!?

    Named ALL of the 11 Doctors (deltablue) – Because he’s a know it all when it comes to Doctor Who! Fortunately he got his bonus question right.

    Mike Something (hursty2) – Not even Mike I’m afraid, began with an M though.

    Sweden and Norway (Pangaea) – The African Cup of Nations, hence African not Scandinavian!

    Gabon & Guinea (Deisler26) – So close but it’s Equatorial Guinea not Guinea, they are 2 different countries.

    I'd like to quibble one question? The 1998 Best Picture Oscar didn't go to Titanic, the 1997 one did.

    Haha oh dear Flamers! That's pretty special from kris as well but I won't crow too much as I know I'll put something utterly imbecilic for the next set of questions.

    It was 1998, the 1997 one was The English Patient.

    Edit: To be honest I thought it was 1997 that Titanic won it but I couldn't think of what did win it the year after so I just stuck that down as my answer as I knew it was around that time.

    Yes but the academy awards in 1998 (which was the question) is the 70th. If it said the academy award for 1998 then that's different.

    Default Round 3: Third time lucky?

    1. What year was the last time Santos won the Brazilian Serie A (Campeonato Brasileiro Série A)?

    2. Name 3 countries that begin with H.

    3. Who are currently 8th in the FIFA World Rankings (nation)?

    4. What is the name of Beyonce and Jay-Z's new baby?

    5. Which 3 Liverpool players scored the 2nd half goals in the famous Champions League Final comeback in 2005?

    6. The well-known slogan "Melts in your mouth, not in your hands" is associated with which brand?

    7. The 'Todoroki Athletics Stadium' is in which country?

    8. Name 4 of the original Cluedo board game characters/suspects.

    9. Who is the current captain of Bayern Munich?

    10. What USA State is the Grand Canyon in?

    Bonus Question: In kris0710’s career thread when managing Sheffield United in the 2015/2016 season he got knocked out of the FA Cup by Huddersfield but what was the score?


    ---------------------------------

    Please Note: For question 2 I will NOT accept Holland as an answer, it is more of a nickname given to the Netherlands. If you put 3 countries down and Holland is one of them you will not get a point. And that ssestig has not got a career thread (apologises if you have, I couldn't find one) so I chose kris0710 over AK22 because he has the better overall score.

    Round 3. But, possibly, because I boned up on football this week just for this quiz.

    I remember the Liverpool game so well, as I was in a Barcelona bar watching it. I made a bet with my mate at HT that we'd give our friend £100 each for her Race for Life sponsorship if they came back to win.....

    Did you both pay up? TBH, even I didn't believe we'd come back from 3-0 down! Definitely the best (and most dramatic) match I've ever seen; one of those pinch yourselves moments that I'll never forget

    I'm happy with 8 points considering a couple of them were guesses. I'm not so confident about this weeks though ...like I care about Jay-Z and whatsherface ;)

    I remember we'd gone on holiday somewhere and I was eager to watch the match when we got to the hotel, got in ran to the TV, AC Milan 3-0 up with like 20 minutes gone? (correct me if I'm wrong) and I was like, ah I've missed all the action.

    Fortunately I still decided to watch the 2nd half and I was bouncing round the room at full time, even though I'm not a Liverpool fan.

    Sent mine, not confident about almost all of them, guessing left right and centre, annoying for the 'multiple answer' ones where I was confident about all but one for the Liverpool and Cluedo ones.

    Good set of questions there, some I knew, some I had to really think about and some where I had no clue whatsoever. After a shocker of a week last week I hope I can at least pull myself back upto mid-table respectability this week!

    Don't take these contests very seriously so will just whip together some answers again. Couldn't give a toss who Jay Z is, never mind his kids.

    Yeah I'm sort of glad I didn't get the answer to that one! Gave me the chance for a comedy response anyway

    If Pangaea doesn't mind and I'm sure he wont, I may have to do a 'Pangaea Special' with the good and not so good answers this week.

    The comedy he's put into almost every answer is brilliant

    So deltablue only stayed top for 2 weeks and we now have a new leader in B.W.G but how long can he stay there for? The odds on Makonnen getting 7 next week? Quite high when you look at his previous scores with the steady improvement.

    Default Round 3: The good and the not so good answers: Pangaea + Baby Names Special!

    So like I said, I'd show you Pangaea's best answers as they did crack me up, maybe not your kind of comedy but none the less they made me laugh out loud.

    Who are currently 8th in the FIFA World Rankings (nation)?
    Again, I've no idea. Who cares about that crap anyway? Betting my house and right ball, okay, not the right ball, on Argentina.

    What is the name of Beyonce and Jay-Z's new baby?
    Following up from the forum, Shotgun Steve. It only seems right

    Which 3 Liverpool players scored the 2nd half goals in the famous Champions League Final comeback in 2005?
    Think Gerrard scored, but don't know the others. I was too disappointed AC Milan turned off and ****ed up!

    The well-known slogan "Melts in your mouth, not in your hands" is associated with which brand?
    Sweet-flavoured Condoms.

    The 'Todoroki Athletics Stadium' is in which country?
    Sounds a little Japanese so I'm going with that. I'm so on top of this!

    Name 4 of the original Cluedo board game characters/suspects.
    Played this once utter yonks ago so should get a few at least. Mafia, villager, police, witness. Unless I have mixed this up with another stupid game we played while downing beers that one time

    ----------------------------------------------------------------

    And now for the baby names that were brilliantly thought up:

    Cornelius (SnakXe)
    Angela Merkel (Flamers)
    Angel Delight (Raware)
    Shameless Publicity Stunt (deltablue)
    Pixie Tinkerbell Kowles-Z (Scribe)
    HotChocolate! With the exclamation mark (rancer890) - By far the best!
    Ding Dong (Nobby_McDonald)
    Fairy Apple Dakota (Adelaidean)
