For the benefit of those who attended the Charity Quiz at The Tollington on Thursday evening, here is the final table of results. The evening raised a big sum for charity, somewhere over £1,300, so thanks to everyone who supported it by turning up or just buying raffle tickets.If any participants have queries on the scores and really care that much, I have all the papers and can check things.
A few notes:
Bonuses were awarded to teams where anyone was wearing an Arsenal shirt – which was one team – and for the best Carl Jenkinson chant. (Team 15 came last despite the shirt bonus, but there were only two of them.)
I got an answer about Borussia Monchengladbach wrong; seemed like almost everyone knew that one except me. Some papers had Borussia marked as a wrong answer, so I adjusted those.
Juan Esnaider scored in every ROUND of the Cup Winners’ Cup in 1994-95, he didn’t score in every GAME – if you put ‘game’ you didn’t get points.
Team 16 tried to play their joker twice! I didn’t let them get away with that.
Gus Caesar’s full first name is ‘Gus’, according to Andy Kelly, who has checked, and not ‘Pogus’ as I thought. There is a ‘Pogus Caesar’ who is a well known artist and filmmaker, apparently.
Gazza appeared in an Arsenal shirt at Paul Merson’s testimonial rather than Michael Watson’s benefit, where the other things mentioned did occur. I changed scores to give points for both answers.
The number of nationalities in the Arsenal squad listed on the back of the programme is 16 – this includes some loanees, such as Santos, but not others, such as Bendtner.
So after all that I think the table is fairly accurate, but I’m sure someone who was there will have a question!
I’ll put the questions up at the weekend.
