Don't worry, that person will be named and shamed tomorrow :D

Flamers, you definitely gave the wrong impression first week. You got a score of 9 but followed that up with a 2 and 5 (and obviously this weeks result, which I know :D muhahahaha).

It's not me, as I haven't entered for two weeks. I've got bored so won't enter now, ever again most probably. I'll still look in for people's results just so I can have some laughs.

What time can we expect the results [B]HC[/B]? Can't wait to see Nobbys answer where he was trying to be smart and also see who scored 0.

[B]Had an idea for Round 10, the last round. Instead of the usual 10 questions with a bonus questions how about 20 questions? No bonus question, it could change the league table dramatically and with it being the final week, always got to go out with a bang? :D[/B]

[COLOR=#333333][B]Notts County are the oldest club formed in 1862 so I will say it was any year after 1862, which makes my answer correct[/B] [/COLOR]:)

You really shouldn't have said that to me, I live in Sheffield, I think I'll know which team is the oldest club formed:

[B]Sheffield FC [/B]formed in 1857 (according to Wikipedia, 24th October)
[B]Notts County[/B] formed in 1862, (correct me if I'm wrong) the oldest football league club and the oldest professional club.

That'd be a fanstastic nickname if everyone was familiar with Gears of War. Since a lot aren't then it probably wouldn't go down so well :p

What about my superbowl answer? Hardly hilarious but surely worth a mention as it was obviously not serious and amusingly wrong on so many levels? Plus career nods are made of win. Just be lucky I didn't put my West Brom side hammering the Blades to reach the playoff, which I nearly did but thought would be a bit cruel.

Four points is more than I expected.

Had no idea København are that young. Though now when you mention it, I seem to recall something about it from the back rows of my brain.

Edit: Those questions look bloody nightmarish :(

I was only about 80 years out on the København question. Never would have gussed they were that young a club.

Looks tough this week. At first glance I think I only know 2 of them.

I knew about 2/3 of the answers. The rest I had to check, I'm so glad I'm writing the questions and not answering them, I'd suck so much.

Maybe I could do a round up of how many points I'd get at the end of the Quiz? :D

I knew the Kobenhavn one because of looking them up when they went on that good (for them) Champions League run a couple of seasons ago.

Sent my answers, and having checked, I think I may just have gotten 8 as predicted! Assuming I didn't get any of the names wrong or confuse real sports for demo sports for the Winter Olympic sports of course.

Sent, mix of a few I knew, genuine but long shot guesses (some so long a shot that they had travelled from the other side of the world) and a few 'comedy' answers. I bet I got 8 or 9 on the last regular question, mega mean that one.
