Chelsea Quiz 5 Results


Recommended Posts

First off here are the answers

1. Who said “You’ve sat on your backside, stabbed Danny in the back and I can’t work for you.” And who did he say it to (a point for each name)

That was Ossie talking to Geoff Hurst.

Hurst handed Ossie squad number 16 out of 16 (back in the days when numbers 1-11 meant something) and when Ossie queried it Hurst told him it was because he wasn’t fit. Ossie had a hairy canary:

“You’ve been coach here for three months. How long does it take to get a player fit then? You’ve sat on your backside, stabbed Danny (Blanchflower) in the back and I can’t work for you. I’ll pick my cards up.”

And he did, Ossie never played football again.

2. When Malouda joined Chelsea two of his new team mates were already known to him having played with them before at domestic level. A point for each one

Drogba and Essien

3. Who was the last Swiss born Chelsea player to be capped for his country and play in the World Cup?

Roberto di Matteo - thought this may catch a few out but nearly everyone got it

4. Which London club turned down the opportunity to relocate to Stamford Bridge before Chelsea were even formed?


5. When we won the league in 1954/1955 what did Eric Parsons and Derek Saunders do that no other player did?

Both played in all 42 league games.

This table shows how everybody did in quiz 5 - congratulations to chelsea rotterdam and cassiya


and this table shows the overall standings - geezer still leading the pack


(anyone nerdy enough to look at the table after quiz 4 and add their quiz 5 score on may see a small discrepancy - this is due to those muppets at Microsoft thinking they can second guess your Excel formula and fix errors that were never there, thus creating an error! It is fixed now and the scores above reflect all the quizzes to date)

Quiz 6 will be along in about two minutes
