Quiz Time!

Interborefestlull. The empty stadium, the performance and the scoreline sum it all up pretty perfectly, nuff said.

Still, what an opportunity to forget the stadium debacle, the injury list and the below par performances and test your Tottenham knowledge with a fun-filled Spurs quiz!

Now you guys need to work with me a bit here, as much as I’ve tried to give the questions a reasonable level of difficulty, it’s blatantly obvs that we can all be Mastermind genius’s with the help of our pal, Google. So cheat if you want to, but you’re only cheating yourself. And your fellow Oeufers. And me. And god.

And no shouting from the back of the classroom (yes, McG, I’m talking to you), I’m more than happy for you all to discuss and debate the questions, but I’ll only be selecting the winner from a post that includes the correct answers to ALL questions.

And what does the extremely bloody clever winner of this quiz receive? There is a prize, and you’ll all be pleased to know that it’s football related. Yes, I am pleased to confirm that the prize for the lucky winner is the F.A, or more accurately, the sweet F.A.

Now put your phones away, spit out that gum, stop chatting, sharpen your pencils and get ready…..

  1. Brexit, eh? Please feel free to applaud, hiss and boo, or just shrug your shoulders. Whatever your position, it’s quite clear that over our history, Tottenham have benefited from players who originated from countries within the European Union. But what official and current membership countries within the EU have never had one of their nationals play for the mighty Spurs?
  2. We’ve had some bloody great goalscorers in our history. Names roll easily off the tongue, Greaves, Chivers, Smith, and more recently the likes of Defoe, Sheringham and Kane. But of all the players that have scored more than 100 goals for the Lillywhites, which player took the highest amount of appearances to get to their centennial milestone?
  3. In my formative Tottenham supporting years, my matchday itinerary included a pre-match and post-match visit to what for me was a very special place, a members only club on the Paxton Road. We weren’t members, but me and Dad would enter through the kitchens at the back. For a Spurs-mad youngster, this was a place of dreams where I met most of the Tottenham players of the time, as well as historical legends, and my dad knew everyone, which made me feel a part of it all. The jumbo sausage, chips and beans were also memorable. What was the name of this club? Warning…you will be spellchecked.
  4. Toby, Toby Toby, Toby Toby, Toby Alderweireld! Jan Jan, Jan Jan Jan Jan, Jan Jan Jan Jan, Jan Jan Jan Vertonghen! We are currently blessed with some of Belgium’s greatest players in Tobes, Jan and Mousa, but we’ve had three other Belgians grace our hallowed turf. Name ’em.
  5. In recent history, we’ve had more managers than I can count on all 11 fingers. In fact, in the 120 years since Tottenham football managers became a thang, there were only 13 managers in the first 60 years, but then 25 in the last 60 years. Which manager has had the longest total tenancy?

 

Good luck on your Spursquest.

    How’s Winksy doing?

    • Fatty B 15/10/2018 at 8:52 pm

      Not too bad, but not remarkable. A few good touches but not imposing himself on the game. He’ll probably be the first England sub.

      • Fatty B 15/10/2018 at 8:58 pm

        Maybe a tad better than not bad.

        • Matt 15/10/2018 at 8:59 pm

    Maguire has just realised he was injured in the first half. It takes this long for his brain to process the information

  • 61 Spurs Nut 🌰 15/10/2018 at 9:13 pm

    Two bookings for two great tackles, wtf?

  • DAVID 15/10/2018 at 9:16 pm

    Wasn’t expecting much from Southgate, happy to admit I was wrong, watching England is getting better.

  • Chauvelin 15/10/2018 at 9:18 pm

    I know it’s England, but still like Southgate to sub off Kane and the other Spurs lads.

    • Chauvelin 15/10/2018 at 9:19 pm

      Fuck you Southgate! Rest our players you knob.

      • 61 Spurs Nut 🌰 15/10/2018 at 9:25 pm

        Very much this.

  • DAVID 15/10/2018 at 9:24 pm

    15 minutes injury time ?

    • Frontwheel 2 15/10/2018 at 9:26 pm

      I’ll go 5 mins

      • Chauvelin 15/10/2018 at 9:28 pm

        Four minutes on the board but he’ll keep going till five minutes.

  • Flat Oeuf 15/10/2018 at 9:29 pm

    Dier has been great tonight

    • Chauvelin 15/10/2018 at 9:30 pm

      All the Spurs lads have.

      • Chauvelin 15/10/2018 at 9:31 pm

        Winks against some of the best kept his head.

    • 61 Spurs Nut 🌰 15/10/2018 at 9:30 pm

      His best game of the season.

    • DAVID 15/10/2018 at 9:32 pm

      A win tonight will do wonders for the players confidence.

  • Frontwheel 2 15/10/2018 at 9:31 pm

  • SpurAndy πŸ₯§πŸ’ 15/10/2018 at 9:32 pm

    • Chauvelin 15/10/2018 at 9:41 pm

      Just. The possession figures will be something like 80-20 percent to Spain.

      • Frontwheel 2 15/10/2018 at 9:42 pm

    Pickford so easily could have gotten sent off. I’ll let the ref off the bookings.

    • AntSpurs 16/10/2018 at 2:28 am

      Pickford is a real character ,proper keeper . He was really smart how he did that. Was a def penalty despite being smacked in the face. What a tackle. I’m sure the ref was on our side tonight.

  • Syd 16/10/2018 at 12:49 am

  • AntSpurs 16/10/2018 at 1:58 am

    I only knew the answers too late. Chadli and Claasen but Blondel forgot completely, looked really decent from what I remember . Pretty minute unless I’m mistaken. Decent touch. Would have gone the legend who is Mr Nick. Sherry would have been a shit guess. Anyways tonight proves Kane has the lot. Teddy, Shearer in one and he’s fucking nutting balls out our own box. To play everyone in especially Sterling who failed to spot him all through the WC is a real testament to him. How can they fail to do the same when he’s by far the best finisher of the lot. Sir Harry. He’ll win us the WC no fucking doubt.

    • AntSpurs 16/10/2018 at 2:17 am

We smashed Atletico 5-1 in the Cup Winners Cup final in 63 but since ? For double points when was the last time we beat a Spanish team away?

  • AntSpurs 16/10/2018 at 2:20 am

    Well that was really quite pleasurable. Now King Eric is better than Busquets, apparently. Winks is the next Xavi/Iniesta. Kane is Sheringham and Shearer, all rolled into one…and that’s just the pundits.

    Spurs fans are just, like:

  • Bruxie 16/10/2018 at 2:37 pm

    Barca have changed as players get older and leave for the last payday.
    RM are on a similar footing and are suffering this season so far.

    Spain are the real losers in all of this as players from both teams are fewer and farther between. The golden years may soon be over for all Spanish football.

    Only investment will bring the clubs back up to speed…but the national team won’t benefit from the renewed influx of foreign players and the possible exit of some to the PL.

    Footy is cyclical. Spurs are just on a bigger orbit.
    It’ll come.

    • Chauvelin 16/10/2018 at 2:46 pm

      Every dog has its day. That’s a pretty sound adage.
      Most footie clubs have had a golden period. Blackpool, Preston, Wolves. I can even remember Carlisle being top of Div One for a couple of weeks!

      • Bruxie 16/10/2018 at 2:49 pm

        Carlisle had Les O’Niell – a former Darlo hero.

        I remember them surprising everyone.

        • Bruxie 16/10/2018 at 2:50 pm

              No “Ls” in Northampton. Sorry.

    I have copied the quote below from Wiki, just to show the mean spirited FA outlook on community clubs such as Darlington. They became the innocent victim of a convicted safe cracker called George Reynolds. He made millions from a chip-board production and subsequently bought my home town club. Built a stadium to hold 20k +.
    Knob. And the FA have a fit & proper person vetting procedure?

    Darlington Football Club is an English football club based in Darlington, County Durham. They are members of the National League North, the sixth tier of English football, and play at Blackwell Meadows.

    The club was founded in 1883, and played its matches at Feethams. The club originally played in regionally organised leagues, and were one of the founding members of the Northern League in 1889. They were first admitted to the Football League when the Third Division North was formed in 1921. They won the Third Division North title in 1925, and their 15th place in the Second Division in 1926 remains their highest ever league finish. After their admission to the League, they spent most of their history in the bottom tier. They won the Third Division North Cup in 1934, their first victory in nationally organised cup competition. They reached the last 16 of the FA Cup twice, and the quarter-final of the Football League Cup once, in 1968. In the early 1990s they won successive titles, in the Conference National in 1990 and the Fourth Division in 1991. In 2011 they won the FA Trophy, defeating Mansfield Town 1–0 at Wembley Stadium.

    Darlington moved to the all-seater, 25,000-capacity Darlington Arena in 2003. The cost of the stadium was a major factor in driving the club into administration in 2012. Because the club was unable to agree a Creditors Voluntary Agreement (CVA) it was expelled from The Football Association. A new club was immediately formed but The Football Association ruled that, as a new club, it must have a different playing name from the expelled club. The name chosen was Darlington 1883, and that club was placed in the Northern League Division One, the ninth tier of English football, for the 2012–13 season. They won three promotions in four seasons before the FA approved their request to change to the traditional Darlington FC name.

    The club’s traditional colours are black and white shirts, black shorts and black and white socks. The club’s crest depicts Locomotion No 1, referring to the town’s railway history; as well as a stylised Quaker hat, referring to the religious movement that had a historic influence on the town, and which was the source of the team’s nickname, the Quakers.

        And those of you wanting to know what this has to do with Spurs?
        We’ve never played a competitive match against Darlo.
        And Cyril Knowles managed them.
        So there.

    Harry Kane. All he does is score shitloads of goals (left foot, right foot, head, and is the best penalty taker in the world), and assist, and hold the ball up, and win headers, and make flick-ons, and run the channels, and bring his teammate into play, and play defense splitting balls, and drop deep if needed, and defend and be the emergency keeper. Average player. One season wonder for the 4th season running.
