Zoo's Question of the Day - Version 2.0

Recommended Posts

just remember reading that in the 92-93 season Norwich were ahead of the pack after 10 games. No idea who played for them but maybe someone from that team?

 

Could be Mark Robins; he was about then, remember having him in my fantasy team.

It was longer than that from what I can try to remember. Stayed ahead up until christmas and featured regularly in second place into the new year. Can recall a lot of names from that time, so someone like Goss or Sutton or even Ruel Fox may be worth a try.

Mike has it :). Mark Robins scored 20 goals in the 92-93 season when Norwich looked for all that you're worth that they were going to take the title.

Matt - Petr Cech & Tim Flowers.

Mark - None.

Mogsy - Seaman, Schwarzer & Robinson.

Tonka & Pete - None.

 

There is still one more out there, I'll give you all a clue seeing as it's late, he won it in 1998.

^ Ding Ding Ding.

 

David Seaman was injured for eight games between February and March in the 1997 season so Manninger took to the sticks to replace him. In the eight games that he played he kept eight clean sheets equaling the clean sheet record for that season. He was however replaced as soon as Seaman was fit to play and didn't feature again for the remainder of the campaign.

Sheffield Wednesday?

I think they had at least one top ten finish in the David Hurst/Guy Whittingham days and maybe even Carbone/Di Canio era.

 

I don't ever remember Sheff Utd getting top 10 though and maybe even Southampton (stand by my pre-season prediction and think they'll easily get it this year!)

Those are the right answers so far - I've been in work as all of you might have noticed so I've not been able to respond till now. I have the day off tomorrow so I'll leave the question open and I'll be able to answer more frequently.

 

2 more :).

Coventry surely? They were fighting relegation virtually every season. Wimbledon, QPR, Reading?

 

Coventry sounds good. Wimbledon finished top six in 93/94.

 

QPR have had decent seasons I think and Reading did well when they first came up....I think C is right with Blackpool.

Carew's a good shout....I always forget that he's Norwegian, name doesn't sound it.

im more amazed by the fact he's scored a hat trick!

 

Looked up the remaining one, would be amazed if anyone got it!

Haha yeah I remember Carew being quite average but he did have one or two monster games every once in a while. Thought Pedersen would have been a more likely contender tbh, he used to take FKs and penalties for Blackburn if I recall correctly.

It's Erik Nevland when he was at Fulham - pretty sure of this (and I haven't googled it!)

 

If I'd have googled the answer (which obviously I haven't) I'd tell you that that's the wrong answer sadly :(.

I thought of Jan Age Fjortoft or however you spell it. Player with Swindon and Sheffield United for a time in the 1990s. Managed a few goals here and there. I didn't research no answer. If it's incorrect, then it's incorrect

That'll be it! Well done... probably best known for kissing Tim Flowers and his aeroplane celebration!!! Surprised people think he's obscure!

I was 9/10 when he started in the Prem so I used to pretend to be him (as well as many others!) when having kick abouts - I'd always do the airplane... replaced the Roger Miller corner flag shake in my celebration repatoir!!!

He had a memorable moment when Swindon had a 2 - 6 loss at Goodison Park in Walkers first game in early 1994. Didn't score from what I can recall that day, or indeed ever against Everton maybe but he was one of the most underrated center forwards of his time. Too good for clubs such as Swindon, although don't remember who they sold him to. It wasn't SUFC, that came later.

I remember him from USA 94 as I was 9 at the time and was collecting the panini stickers :D

 

Didn't watch English football much yet at the time as coverage was pretty much non existant back then in Portugal. Only started getting games and highlights in 96, 97. I remember we strangely had Bundesliga matches shown live on tv for some reason, La Liga as well of course. Anyway I digress...
