Official Soccer Trivia Thread

For those who love stockpiling useless info...

I'll start

Who was the 1st player in the Scottish league to reach the 200 goal plateau?

This guy led Scotland to victory in the Nations Cup in 2003. The Nations Cup is a local tournament in my city where people represent their country of ethnicity and play a 2 day tournament. There's people from all over the Fraser Valley, and parts of BC. Last year, this player (who is the answer to the previous question) made a cameo appearance while visiting Vancouver.


EDIT: This isnt a new question, rather a hint- if you can call it that- for OneSpeedOnly's question.

Ally McCoist


I forgot the question.

Which players have played for Feyenoord, Ajax and PSV. (Dutch posters stay out of it)

Correct.

Ruud Geels scored 285 league goals in 409 matches between 1968 and 1983.

Typically Norwich beat Sunderland in that final

OK, what was unusual about the 1969 European Cup Winners' Cup Final?

Grasping for straws here...

All the goals were scored in spaces of multiples of two? 14, 16, 12,10?

Goals :
2' 1 : 0 Slovan Bratislava : Cvetler
16' 1 : 1 FC Barcelona : Zaldua
30' 2 : 1 Slovan Bratislava : Hrivnak
42' 3 : 1 Slovan Bratislava : Jan Capkovic
52' 3 : 2 FC Barcelona : Rexach

Sorry the year is 1972, the year Glasgow Rangers won the Cup. When I was checking for the year that Rangers won the cup it said 1969.

So the question is: What was unusual about the 1972 European Cup Winners' Cup Final?

I'm really curious because I've no idea what was unusual about that final. You didn't mention Glasgow's opponent Dinamo Moskva, so I think it has something to do with them.


Frolov 6'3's wild guesses.

1. This was the first time ever that a Russian team took part in the European Cup Winners' Cup ?

2. Both Glasgow Rangers and Dinamo Moskva didn't win the national Cup the year before but participated because they were the losing finalists ?

3. This was the first time ever a Russian team reached an European Cup final ?

It's equally about both teams really, but more of an officiating issue. So no to your guesses, inspired though they are.

I just read the match was played in unusual circumstances and the referee should have abandoned it. Does it have anything to do with the fact that Glasgow Rangers got a 5-year ban because fans misbehaved themselves outside the stadium during the match ?

No. It's more a mistake the ref made.

GB, aren't you refering to an incident what happened in the second round ?

Glasgow Rangers had won their home match with 3-2 from Sporting Lisbon but lost the away match with 4-3. Lisbon won after penalties but didn't go through. The ref had made a mistake because Rangers' away goals should have counted double and it should never have gone to penalties.

Yes, I thought that had happened in a two-legged final.
Your question.
