So its the moment everyone was waiting for and makes lockdown an irrelevance until people starting answering

Usual rules - I donate £20 to the winner of the quiz and I trust each entrant to make a gift to the chosen charity of my choice - this year it is Dogs Trust

As mentioned I have also donated £30 to the charity which was ccfcway choice - Cystic Fibrosis Trust - if you feel generous please also donate to this as well as the dogs Trust if entering - so eyes down - and here we go again

Remember no posting answers ALL TO BE PM'd TO ME AT THE END OF THE QUIZ!!!

Goalkeeper

"I sit here in my prison cell and I often think of that time I played for Coventry City and I had such a memorable day. Sadly I had that stupid affair and my wife found out and I strangled her to death and now I am here for ever"

“The goalkeeper is a no mark. I murdered 3 people and now walk the streets of Britain again. Also once lived in a road named after me (trivial fact that)

Centre Half 1

"Now I know the goalie and the centre half have been bragging about their crimes. There is no truth at all I became a plural than a singular so that people did not think I was related to a truly heinous child murderer.

No I was just a guy who played a handful of times for CCFC and then established a career at another club"

Here I am!

Centre Half 2

OK here I am below looking all clean shaven. Now actually we are talking about my nephew who played for CCFC for a fair few seasons in the 70's. I scored 3 goals in my whole career. Three more than him - well he claims he once scored in that silly indoor US league

Right Midfield

"Look here is a photo of me and some mates on my paint ball day out in Cannock Chase. We ended up staying in a caravan overnight. The two dicks as usual got pissed and threw up everywhere! They said they got bored with me telling them about my first professional club Coventry City and the other 14 or so clubs I played for. At least the foreign guy looked interested"

Central Midfielder 1

The picture below is a clue to a midfielder who started life in the Championship for CCFC

If you think he was a favourite of mine you would presume wrong. I would presume not and we never even met here anyway

I will do the final striker tomorrow and then by Monday:

Sub Goalie
Sub outfield player

Then I will plug it shamelessly to actually try and get some responses and end it just before the end of the Year

Good effort. Thanks for doing this again, and of course to the benefit of the good causes.

(I haven’t got many yet, but will donate either way)

Ive done it differently this year. It’s hard to know how to pitch it. I’m hoping even if it’s a pound each to the nominated charities and people only know a couple they will enter.

Id be amazed if someone gets then all but I say that every year.

"I am still playing. I played at Coventry briefly in League 1. I am a big fan of Sir Brian Rix. I once did an impression of the great Sir Brians favourite comedy act. It got me into trouble and made more headlines that may very average time at Coventry"

So that concludes this years Quiz. Please send answers via PM. Remember the two charities to support. Even if you do not know all the answers please join in and send me anyway and donate.

Even £1 per entry for each charity is fine. We have had nearly 140 views on the thread so that amount would be a great gesture.

Hope you enjoyed and Good Luck!!!!

I might extend until June so Harry can work out the answers this year


Was that aimed at me G :ROFLMAO:? If so, I'm going to enter (and donate to a charity, promise). I've been a bit busy dealing with funeral stuff at the moment, but hats off to you for arranging this - a lot of effort clearly gone in. Will look through to find the deadline, but will try and submit the (some !) answers by the end of tomorrow! (I'll have to read up the rules re: charity donation!)

Just seen the deadline is Dec 30th (funeral date!) so I have some 'studying; time.

Are we allowed to google any of this? I've got a couple but with some of the picture clues ive no idea who/what they are showing to work anything out from. Same with the stats for a single appearance/first club.

I’ve resorted to reverse image search a couple of times but he’s mostly picked ones tin eye can’t find. It’s an excellent quiz to do in these times of google. Still really challenging. 👍
Thanks. As I said some of the terminology in some clues is designed to be as useful as the pictures

There is slight poetic licence on the keeper but not very much

Are they all cov / ex-cov players?
It may sound like a silly question but I have a reason for asking.

They have all played at least once for Coventry in some capacity
