Q.63 is well easy!! Chix you haven't answered my question yet....
PFCGino
Well you wanted a clue and that is only worth one mark. Ah the 1st April 1978 (Q73) a day I remember well!! These are probably too easy but remember get extra points by asking us sensible questions.
eastneydave
Dave I'm confused about Q73 - don't want to raise my concerns though incase I give away the answer by mistake! Still, I'll have a guess, if I'm wrong, I'm wrong!
PFCGino
Gino Re Q73 What's to be confused about.. The question is "What did the Fratton Park crowd witness on 1st April 1978?" .. the answer could be a Bonfire Display, Benjani getting sent off, Pompey beating Saints 10-0.. There's no trick in the question.. If you were at Fratton Park on that date what did you see (apart from grass !) .. As simple as that ..
Chix
Re Q63 I can't believe I left that the answer in .. I'lll remove it later .. But as Dave say's it's only worth one point anyway .. So at least everybody has got one right.
Chix
Haha - Chix, I didn't see anything because it was 8 years before I was born! Can I have a point for that?! :-p
PFCGino
Back to Q73. I was there and for those who were it is easy but if Chix and I decide to give a clue we will but it may be hidden away in the Personal column of the Times ;-)
eastneydave
Come on then Chix, you still need to answer my question!! And Dave, I'm a bit lost on your clue...
PFCGino
Ok Gino If you promise no more 'linking questions I'll give in.. I can't work out the answer.. and if it is categorically correct you can have the ten points..
Chix
My question was "What links Utaka, Mvuemba, Kranjcar, Basinas, Belhadj?" - the answer is that they are the members of the current first-team Pompey squad that signed from Foreign (i.e. Non-British) clubs. Go ahead, try and wriggle, I'm pretty sure I'm right! No more list questions, promise! There was a clue in Chimes, as the beginning letter of each paragraph spelt the word "Foreign"! Obscure I know, but I didn't want to make it easy....
PFCGino
I can't argue with that one Gino It's a good question and your answer is correct .. I spent a long time looking at their previous clubs but thought is centred around something to do with France but Basinas and Krancjar always threw me.. So fair cop Ten Bonus Points to you.. Oh I'm glad your clue was so obscure I would have never have thought of looking at things like that.. so I'm gald I didn't spend too long looking !
Chix
Woop woop that's made my day! Now to get thinking of another question that's non-list related....
PFCGino
Q73 another clue - I was there but could not stand in my usual section of the ground.
eastneydave
this series is fantastic i did a simular thing once with cryptic clues on players names...should i dig it out?
plymouth graham
Graham - of course email it to Rug and we will use it.
eastneydave
Cheers Graham .. just don't forget to submit your answers it's wide open at the moment..
Chix
Nikola Kalinic from Hajduk Split is going to pompey for 8 mil euro its supposedly going to be announced anytime
Andyflag679
Yep saw that Andyflag Maybe (if he signs in time there be a question about hie in the final part of the Quiz Due out Sunday evening
Chix
Ok Chix and Dave, a question for you to both work on... Hermann Hreidarsson scored a bullet of a header against Man City on 14th February 2009. But who was the last player to score for Pompey from a corner before this in a competitive match? (Scoring from a corner in my eyes constitutes as the ball crossing the line within 7-8 seconds of the corner kick being taken) I'm not 100% sure of the answer, but if you get the same as me, or closer to the above date with your final answer, I'll accept defeat. Best of luck.
PompeyFrippy
So if in that 7 or 8 seconds the ball came over from a corner was cleared by a cefender and then volleyed into the net .. Would you count that ? .. I'm not sure if that makes it easier of harder for us but we will find an answer I'm sure..
Chix
Yes, for instance, Mendes's famous goal against City would (in my eyes) come from a corner.
