I'm making 16-answer quizzes for each letter of the alphabet* and uploading one each weekday until I'm finished. You can find them here:

 

https://www.sporcle....a-z-of-football

 

Right now we're up to L.

 

I'd be interested in any feedback. I'm trying to make it so that:

 

i) a casual football fan can get at least a few answers right

ii) someone who isn't into football (as some Sporcle users are) can get one or two

iii) even obscure answers can sometimes be achieved via some lateral thinking, or process of elimination

iv) while the quizzes give some bias towards the Premier League - since they're in English, this makes sense - you'll be served better with some European and indeed global football knowledge

v) despite all the above, you need to be a serious football fanatic to get 16/16

 

*I may combine X and Y. Q and Z are no problem - I've already started drafting them and will easily manage them - but X is likely to be a bridge too far. So... it might be 25 quizzes instead of 26.

Really they're better known as Xamax, but it's Neuchatel Xamax.

 

This also wasn't how I envisioned the thread going :P

I've written 10 of my X questions so far, and I think that's all I'll be able to do. Xamax is one of them, of course.

I've done up to E, averaging around 12/16. Some are real Cuntish questions that involve trying to get Sven-Goran Ericksson's name spelt right.
