yes

 

That's a rubbish trivia question!

 

As for the managers one - Souness is right, I don't think Hoddle is.

Keegan played for a team in New South Wales but it wasn't them, any chance of a clue?

 

No it wasn't Keegan, he was a guest player for half a dozen games with a Sydney team.

 

Who has played for both Newcastle United upon Tyne and Newcastle United, New South Wales?

 

The guy wasn't successful at either club and was released by both, if that helps.

It wasn't a trivia question, I asked was he manager because I didn't know.

 

Manager one... Ron Atkinson? Villa, was at Forest when they got a hammering 8-1 at home to Man u, Coventry was definately in the Prem... were Wednesday?

After I saw the hint I knew it would be an ex-reserve player of ours, Krug sussed it before I could get through the ones I remember.

Right, to tidy this up, when I was asked the question (at the beginning of last season) there were NINE players who had scored for 5+ prem teams.

Of that original nine, you've got seven:

 

Ferdinand (QPR, us, Spurs, West Ham, Leicester, Bolton)

Cole (Us, ManU, Blackburn, Fulham, Man City, Portsmouth, mackems)

Sheringham (Forest, Spurs, ManU, Portsmouth, West Ham)

Collymore (Forest, Liverpool, Villa, Fulham, Leicester, Bradford)

Carbone (Sheff Wed, Villa, Bradford, Derby, Boro)

Ward (Norwich, Derby, Barnsley, Blackburn, Bradford)

Barmby (Spurs, Boro, Everton, Liverpool, Leeds)

 

Bonus points to Alex, Keith and Walliver for pointing out that four more players have joined the "5+ Club" since (are there anymore?):

 

Yorke (Villa, ManU, Blackburn, Birmingham, mackems)

Bellamy (Coventry, us, Blackburn, Liverpool, West Ham)

Anelka (Arsenal, Liverpool, Man City, Bolton, Chelsea)

Sutton (Norwich, Blackburn, Chelsea, Birmingham, Villa)

 

So you are still looking for TWO players from that original nine.

I'd completely forgotten about this.

I've filled the answers in now. The two nobody got were:

 

Mark Hughes (ManU, Chelsea, Southampton, Everton, Blackburn)

and

Eyal Berkovic (Southampton, West Ham, Blackburn, Man City, Portsmouth)

Leicester's correct though unless you reword the question. Are the others right then?

Name Three players who played for Scunthorpe and then went on to captain England.

Ray Clemence, Kevin Keegan and Ian Botham (although I think Botham had already captained England).
