There you go people get your thinking caps on and get quizzing.. and remember if you can stump me and Eastneydave with a Pompey related question then there's and extra 10 points on offer.

Any questions whatsoever - Just ask
05/07/2009 21:02:00
wow some impressive questions..... so can we use google :D
05/07/2009 21:24:00
M@ You can use whatever you can get your hands on, fair means or foul.. Clever searches using Google will unearth a fair few I'm certain, but some I'm sure you won't find on the net... anywhere !! Bear in mind though when Dave & I research stuff for our various projects we are constantly surprised how often google and (in particular) Wiki is wrong so check and double check... Good Luck!
05/07/2009 21:31:00
Blimey there are a fair few toughies there. Looks like I may have to look for a new job whilst I am researching!
05/07/2009 22:50:00
Fear not Sneaks I did say that I reckon anybody who can answer over half will be in with a chance.. I reckon if you can get 25 points from the 50 on offer then you'll be doing brilliantly..
05/07/2009 23:24:00
Yes use any source you can - even buying me a drink on Saturday might work ;-). Google some of the questions and you will probably come back to an article in Vital Pompey!! As we are THE source of all things Pompey.

I can't believe we haven't had at least one question to challenge us yet Dave. I've been sat here pen poised.. but nothing. All it'll take is for somebody to stump us, gain 10 bonus points and they would immediately go into the lead...

Fantastic Quiz, and seen as nobody has asked any questions yet, I'll have a pop, and I'll do it in a Chixy kind of way. Who am I? 1. I am a midfielder. 2. I am from the continent of Europe. 3. I have played for Pompey in the Premier League. 4. I have also played in Scotland. 5. I have only ever scored twice for the club. 6. I am now retired. 7. I played over 75 games for my country, but was left out of the World Cup squad. I'm not sure if I made that too easy or too hard, but I guess if you want a few extra questions of your own choosing (say 3), I will oblige.

Nice one to warm us up Frippy .. I think if I'm not mistaken it can only really be Eyal Berkovic ... but I wondering if Israel is in Europe.. but hey they take part in the Eurovision Song Contest (so I'm told) so that's good enough for me .... The only other thing that is worrying me is that Eyal scored three goals for Pompey .. Did you forget the one in the League Cup against Leeds ?... I wait to see what Dave reckons before we say Final Answer but I reckon this is ya man.

What do ya think Dave?
06/07/2009 15:58:00
Can't disagree Chix. He was left out of the Israel squad by none other than Avram Grant. The only interesting point is is Israel in mainland Europe?
