Own up if you didnt get Bob Wilson as a scot?



- until Wenger moves on, they'll always be the also-rans in the major competitions. A club in elite purgatory. Always good enough to make it to the big race, never fast or smart enough to push over the finish line in first place. That's all about the manager. Until he changes, Arsenal fans will continue to celebrate glorious failure.

8) Walley Barnes. Geoff Barnett at a push.


19) We won 2-0 which meant we didn't have any bearing on the outcome of the league title.

45) He deputised for Michael Thomas at right back. Viv Anderson left during the summer of 1987 and Winterburn joined us that summer so they weren't at the club at the same time.

I thought Eastham was stretching it, so why not Barnett?
Barnes is definitely one

I got 33

celine George Graham did not finish his playing career at crystal palace, he had a short stint in the USA after palace

and as pointed out already Arsenal beat aston villa on last day of season 80/81, brian mcdermott who is now the reading manager scored one of his few goals for arsenal that day. Ipswich failed to beat middlesboro and so handed the title to villa

sorry chaps I totally apologise for the villa question. I was trying desperately to find a question from the 1980 era which is not my peak time of life and stumbled on a webstory about Aston Villas league title win. As you know I do enjoy quite a lot to drink of an evening especially around xmas and I appear to have posted a dud question. What I thought happened was that we lost to Villa and then Ipswich lost to boro the the same day then lost the next game so Villa were champions. I appear to be incapable of comprehending complex football results. By way of mitigation did we not beat Ipwsich 2-0 the following season on the final day to hand the title to Liverpool? That, I think, is what I was getting mixed up with.

However, to the other trainspotter whose come on here, Barnes is in Surrey, its next to Richmond, so you arent having that.

celine we indeed beat ipswich away 2-0 the following season, but it was not our last game of the season, I think peter nicholas may have got his one and only arsenal goal in said game, he had joined from palace that march and did not lose a game with us that season - was only about ten games.

I give my self a half mark for Rocastle dying (Sm159)

should have had Gilliespie Road but forgot.

Knew where Chamakh was born and Eduardo, Rosicky and Anelka scored against Arsenal.

2.5 points

a few comments...

Arsenal could have been wearing aways shorts in home matches last week, I would not remember or care.

surprise you hightlighted question 45 as a trick question, when same could be said for a few of the earlier ones, or maybe it's just me completely baffled.

who knew England played Saudi Arabia?

Last time I looked Barnes was well inside London:

26) Who was Paul Allen the brother of?

And the "trick" part of question 45 is that the answer is wrong winking smiley

dont really agree. Micky Thomas was no more a right back than Winterburn was. So you could say they were both being used to replace Anderson before Lee dixon turned up which was I think in early December (Dixons first game was in midfield though, I believe). Thomas got injured then Winterburn had a go and played for about the same length of time. So although Winterburn was bought as a replacement for Sansom you can still say he started his Arsenal career in the spot vacated by Viv Anderson after several seasons in that position. The point of the question, as I am sure you will understand, is that Winterburns first sequence of games were at right back, when he was an almost entirely left footed. Perhaps I should have rephrased the question, to avoid pedantry.

Barnes, historically part of Surrey and falling into the borough of Richmond, can be considered part of London due to its postcode so in the spirit of seasonal goodwill I am prepared to allow Goonerak a third of point on that question.

If anyone else want a row about my questions Im here all day.

26) I meant brother in a fraternal sense. We are all brothers under the Lord are we not.

But yes if you are going to be technical about it I meant cousin, to Martin and Clive.

Dear brother, or sister, well done on conceding Barnes, its also on the London Underground

Since when has Barnes been on the underground? Did it happen over xmas?

There are two stations, both overground, Barnes Bridge and Barnes.

I lived in Barnes in my earliest years so I'm fairly well acquainted with the area.

Apologies it is a railway station, but is in Zone 3 and covered by a London Travel Pass interchangeable with the london Underground thus it is part of Transport for London integrated network

Inded we are not debating that anymore, but splitting hairs over its position in the Transport network of London
