Blimey - that's a bit mind boggling!!

Even I wasn't alive at the beginning of footy as it is in UK!!  :D

I know there are people here that will know more than I do though - especially certain other Arsenal fans ;)

But - I'm not going to look at the answers you've posted. I'll do a bit of research when I have the time - will keep my brain cells working :)

Watto TomCat-fellow Gooner.

I'm new to this web-site and its ways. Hope you enjoy the quiz.

My son's going to the Portsmouth Game but as both Borough and Stortford are away I'll probably go and watch Takely in the Essex Premier League,

Well - now I might have some competition, I may as well try a few :)

If 13 is men's, then it's the Sheffield club.

18 - a game for gentlemen played by ruffians
19 - a game for ruffians played by gentlemen

Or - is it the other way round?

(You can always try the opposite to me and maybe gain 2 points Smithy  ;D )

Btw - I see there have been 26 views of the answers so far - but no-one but us has tried to answer any here!!!
I know I've not looked - and I know you wouldn't cheat ;)
