Yorke always comes across as a bit of a simpleton. I read him talking himself up over the (not actually available) Sunderland job the other day. If he's serious about mangement he should start by setting his sights lower. A lot lower.

 

In other bad manager news I've only just found out Tony Adams is the manager of Granada. How the hell did that happen? :laughingsmiley:

 

The Moyes and Neville experiments were strange enough, what's going on out there? :eh:

I see West Brom have appointed a new assistant manager - It's former forest favourite Gary Megson.

 

Pulis and Megson, now that is a grim combination. I liked this quote from his interview ".....and we have similar views on how football should be played". I always assumed Megson's dire football was mostly down to a combination budgetary constraints and simply being a very boring man but he talks about it like it's an actual footballing ethos :thumbsdown_still:

Art's Premier League Quiz Challenge: On the opening weekend of the first Premier League season there were 13 foreign players. How many can you name? :nerd:

 

and I mean proper foreign, ie not Irish.

Cantona
Mjolby?
Orgyllsson (no idea how to spell the name)
Brian Jensen?

Guessing at a few Scandinavians as they tended to be the foreigners in those days.

The situation is what it is Natalie.

I think he was John Jenson.

 

Just had an accidental cheat and looked on Wiki and it was John Jenson but saw these at the same time...

 

Anders Limpar and Pal Lyderson, remember him?

 

Those Scandinavians made me think Henning Berg. 

 

Had Kanchelskis and Schmeichel arrived by then?

 

Grobbelaar.

I wrote that badly. That should have been foreign 13 players appearing on the opening weekend. So although Orlygsson, Lyderson, Molby, and Grobbelaar were about they weren't involved.

 

Just too early for Berg I think, David May played right back in their first Premier League season :nerd:  Yes to Jenson, Limpar, Schmeichel, and Kanchelskis. There are another four or five gettable ones and two or three very tough ones......

Yes to Rosenthal and Cantona (missed him before), Srnicek was getting promoted with Newcastle that year, think Monkcou must have been injured, just too early for the rest. Clues....

 

Two are Scandinavian fullbacks with nearly 200 caps between them

Three are Keepers, one non-European

One was a Polish International

One is a Man City defender

 

one of the above has a Forest connection....

I googled this in the end and there are at least 3 that nobody would ever get.

Here's another brain teaser...

What were the answers?  I had a look at that, I think I'm the World's worst person at doing cryptic puzzles.
