Think the final sports question is sketchy. It will just sound like Schuey when you call it out.

Who was the last English manager to win the league title and with which club? Surely has to make the cut.

Alphabetically, which are the first and last teams to qualify for this year’s World Cup (Dunno, off the top of me head?!)

Wimbledon is traditionally preceded by a women’s tournament in Eastbourne. What’s the name of the venue (Devonshire Park)

Wow do you practice being a cunt or does it come naturally
Because a thing seems difficult for you, do not think it impossible for anyone to accomplish.

:mrgreen:
The latter. I make it look easy because it’s a rare gift. I’m sorry if that irritates someone like yourself whose had to work so hard at being one, but I can’t help it.

Seriously though, it’s a damn good quiz question, isn’t it?

Guy to do this again the week after next.

Any clever ideas for sports questions that turn more on a bit of general knowledge/educated guesswork rather than encyclopedic 'spotter knowledge (e.g. not asking people to name all the subs in the 1995 BAROMETER final) and ideally with some element of gender (e.g. you'd expect an all female team to stand half a chance) and class (e.g. nothing about say rowing or other 'elite' sports that don't exist to the man in the street) neutrality???

And ideally that are a bit light hearted and/or funny?

Who is the only person to have scored a perfect 18 on a full size 18 hole golf course?
Mirrors and copulation are abominable, since they both multiply the numbers of men.
