    Guardian Football Quiz.

    There's usually a new one every day, and as they use the same url, a click on the above link should get you to the current one.

    I got 9 out of 10 right today :D - my best ever score.

    Got the first one wrong :roll:

    Not bad. Gutted I got the Milan one wrong, but the other 2: Curtis and world cup loser it was one of 2 and I got neither right. Where's the justice?

    Curtis and Sillett were the two men squealing like girls when Coventry beat us in the '87 Cup Final. Came back early from a holiday in Thailand to see that game, so not likely to forget those bastards, sorry, Coventry legends.

    I guessed the Kanu and Hungary ones (well I knew Hungary lost to Brazil in one final).

    yeh, the guardian sports page is good.

    As I wrote in my original post, everlong ( :roll: :wink: ) there's usually a new one every day. You also get a little comment on how well you've done after you click for results which is sometimes amusing.

    I wouldn't bother reading up in a book, though. My only tip is that there's usually a few questions from other football articles on the site, so read those first if you are taking it seriously.

    After John Peel died last year, the whole quiz was about him. I got all ten right.

    OK hands up who's surprised at that?

    Thought not :wink: .

    There's a general sports quiz about the past week's events on the BBC web site.

    I got 9/10 on this too - including the Tina Turner question!

    I'm just a lucky guesser today.

    Really sorry I didn't post the answers for you bH. Of course, they have now changed for today's quiz.

    If you want to have a go at that, I have cut and pasted the answers into Notepad, so can let you know what they are if you can't get them again.

    I got 6/10 today, so I expect to be dropped after this dip in form. Here's that link again.
