Chelsea Quiz Number 11

Eton Blue at the Chelsea Megastore

Recommended Posts

10 questions meaning 20 points on offer this week. (one off for Xmas week)

1. Who was Roman Abramovich’s first signing for Chelsea (and no it wasn't Shevchenko Bluenut!) - I mean the first player we signed with his cash.

2. My football career began with Chelsea as an apprentice. I played for them for 10 years between the mid 80s and mid 90s making just over 170 appearances in total. I moved to a club in the North of England mid season (1995/96). It was a bit bloody grim up there so I moved back to the South West of the country in 1998 before moving into non league football at the age of 32. Who am I?

3. Which manager decided that the best way to replace the departed Diego Maradona was not to buy a replacement but trust in a youngster called Gianfranco Zola?

4. Who is reported to have stood beside Manchester United chairman Martin Edwards in the toilets at Old Trafford and whistled along as the Chelsea fans sung 'Who the f**K are Man Utd!'

5. Who holds the record for scoring the most number of penalties in one season for Chelsea?

6. On 6th December 2008 one of our ex players made his debut for the 6th club he has played at since leaving us (covering 4 different countries) - who was it?

7. Who was our first ever overseas player and what nationality was he (1 point for each)

8. Whose career saw him play for the following clubs (in this order) before moving to the USA. Leeds, Swansea, Wimbledon, Manchester City, Chelsea, Everton, Crystal Palace, Fulham, Sheffield United.

9. Which ex-Chelsea player returned to the Bridge the following season and helped his new team knock us out of the Milk Cup (that should date it slightly for you) and was, for a period of time, chased across the pitch by a Chelsea fan seeking retribution!

10. Which two players did Ken Bates accuse Chelsea of tapping up in early 2007 (a point for each)?

I thought it was a double week one for Christmas and New Year. I'm having problems with finding out who was in the stall next to Martin Edwards at Old Trafford. I heard a rumour that Martin Edwards crawled on hands and knees into the ladies' toilets to peek under the doors. But then someone told me it was a masked man from Kilcreggan.
