Oldies.....but goodies?


Recommended Posts

When I were a lad a lot of blokes used to take newcomers in the pub for a ride by asking what seemed to be easy questions but were actually very odd and sometimes too hard. Winner got a pint of Higsons Brown, needless to say the newcomers always ended up paying.

Questions like these....remember these were 50 years ago!

 

1. What is taken to every Cup Final but never used?

 

2. Who played for both sides in the 1959 Cup Final?

 

If you know the answers please feel free to post them. Otherwise add your own experiences of these off-the-cuff pub quizzes.

1. Losing teams ribbons?

 

2. No idea, but I assume there was an own-goal involved?

There's a good cricket related one too.

 

Q. Who are the only father and son ever to play for their country in the same game?

 

If you get this one you are really clever and a little anal too!

 

I know this one. I know this one. They played for the West Indies right? And they both scored a century, right? No way I can remember the names, though.

Who does he play for and what position?

 

:huh: Full back who played in two Merseyside derbies, one for each side, in 2001/2.

 

But the answer doesn't fit your question because you stated that the person you're after played for Liverpool and then Everton (other way round with Abel). Also there was a fee involved.

Who played for Liverpool (v Everton) at Anfield and then for Everton (v Liverpool) at Goodison in the same season?

 

Clue: There was no transfer fee involved.

The answer is: The Salvation Army Band. (I know this is similar to Oz's Cup Final question but I think mine pre-dates his. I remember hearing it in the 1950's.)

OK, no takers for the cricket question.....remember these are not necessarily real answers.

 

How about this football one: Who scored from a position farthest way from the goal? In other words, who holds the record for scoring from the farthest distance?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

By the way, the cricket answer is Miandad, (me an' Dad)

Javed Miandad played for Pakistan from mid 70's to early 90's for those who don't know the name.

Oh dear - that's bad! :)

 

I did a Google search to track down the trivia I had heard previously. The two didn't play for the West Indies, but a father and son did play for the same team in a Guyana league - and they did both score centuries.
