785 posts in this topic

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.

I did a great deal better than I thought I would, guessing the Titanic question.

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 :D

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 :D:thup:

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.

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 :D

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! :D

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 :D

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

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! :thup:

Ding Dong (Nobby_McDonald)

Fairy Apple Dakota (Adelaidean)
