NAME THE 4 players TO HAVE played FOR BOTH rangers AND celtic:    Greatscots excluded.... LOL
Sam (Juventus) 2 years ago
Can't say that I didn't cheat on this one- I actually found more than 4 players (the list had more than 10)- here are the 5 most recent according to what I found:
Alfie Conn (Rangers 1968–1974, Celtic 1977–1979)
Maurice Johnston (Celtic 1984–1987, Rangers 1989–1992)
Steven Pressley (Rangers 1990–1994, Celtic 2006–2008)
Mark Brown (Rangers 1999–2001, Celtic 2007–2010)
Kenny Miller (Rangers 2000–2001, Celtic 2006–2007, Rangers 2008–2011)
Tony (footytube staff) 2 years ago
Not sure on the brown answer, maybe greatscot could clarify that one, maybe he moved between the two clubs, but maybe he never got to play an actual game for one of them, or either, who knows.
Great bit of googling sam.... Lol
Sam (Juventus) 2 years ago
Hey, I should get bonus points for supporting the Blue side of the Old Firm...
GreatScot (Rangers)(Footytube Staff) 2 years ago
Yeah Mark Brown was a back up to Arthur Boruc, but he definitely played for both clubs!
Tony (footytube staff) 2 years ago
Did he actually turn out for the gers john? , I don't remember him at all
Sam (Juventus) 2 years ago
Which World Cup had the highest number of hat-tricks scored over its course? How many were scored?
Donnchadh (Liverpool) 2 years ago
Perhaps 1970 I know Gerd Muller scored two tricks in the group stages. And I wouldn't be surprised if a Brasilian bagged one in that tournament. England were also strong in that tournament, don't know if they had an attacker to do it though. Did Eusebio play in Mexico, I know he had a game with four in 66 scoring nine in the tourney
Sam (Juventus) 2 years ago
Nice guess, but incorrect...
ManUK (Manchester United) 2 years ago
Well google aided me a little bit, but apparently Sándor Kocsis scored 7 or so hat tricks for Hungary. And he scored more than one of those in the 1954 world cup in switzerland, so I'll go with that
Sam (Juventus) 2 years ago
Go with...
ManUK (Manchester United) 2 years ago
The 1954 World Cup where Kocsis scored two hat tricks?
Sam (Juventus) 2 years ago
Correct ManUK.... The 1954 WC in Switzerland is the right answer- a total of EIGHT hat-tricks were scored in that WC, with Koscsis scoring 2 for the high-scoring Hungary team:

Sándor Kocsis 3 goals Hungary 9–0 South Korea First round
Erich Probst 3 goals Austria 5–0 Czechoslovakia First round
Carlos Borges 3 goals Uruguay 7–0 Scotland First round
Sándor Kocsis 4 goals Hungary 8–3 West Germany First round
Burhan Sargın 3 goals Turkey 7–0 South Korea First round
Max Morlock 3 goals West Germany 7–2 Turkey First round
Theodor Wagner 3 goals Austria 7–5 Switzerland Quarter-final
Josef Hügi 3 goals Switzerland 5–7 Austria Quarter-final

The tournament also set the record for most goals per match in a tournament at 5. 38 (where were the goalies?) goals per game
LumpOfCelery (Chelsea) 2 years ago
Holy Mackrel, 5. 38
Donnchadh (Liverpool) 2 years ago
Nice one Sam, 5+ goals a game, would have been fun to watch hahhaa

I scored over 300 goals in my career in all competitions.
I won the U-23 European Footballer of the Year.
3 years later, I won the Ballon d'Or and FIFA World Player of the Year in the same year.
In every World Cup that I played in, my team were always eliminated on penalties (three times).
Who am I?
Somere (Portmore Utd) 2 years ago
Baggio
Somere (Portmore Utd) 2 years ago
Not many player who won the U-23 European Footballer of the Year award played in 3 world sups
Sam (Juventus) 2 years ago
Yeah, gave too many clues on that one.... Anyway, yes Baggio is indeed correct
TheBarcaShow (Footytube Staff) 2 years ago
Just thought that I'd write this to acknowledge the efforts of everyone who comes here to post questions and answers. This is easily one of my favourite threads (its as addicting as sporcle) and I come on this every time I'm on footy tube. I do read all the questions but I am stumped on the majority of them.

Anyways, thanks to all those who keep us guessing
Donnchadh (Liverpool) 2 years ago
God bless bud, cheers
TheBarcaShow (Footytube Staff) 2 years ago

Somere (Portmore Utd) 2 years ago
Manchester united 99 and 2009. Barcelona 2009, inter milan 2010
TheBarcaShow (Footytube Staff) 2 years ago
Barcelona 09 lost a game or two in the group stages after they sealed qualification, forget against who and Inter in 2010 lost to Barcelona away at Camp Nou 1-0 thanks to a Pique goal.

Just a stab in the dark, Liverpool, Milan, United and Ajax
Kimaway17 (Liverpool) 2 years ago
It was 2-0. Pique and Pedro
TheBarcaShow (Footytube Staff) 2 years ago
Nope it was 1-0 just Pique. Bojan scored the 2nd one but it was disallowed. I got nightmares about it. 100% positive. We lost the first tie 3-1. In that match Pedro scored
Sam (Juventus) 2 years ago
As mentioned, only 4 teams have been able to accomplish this feat twice:
Ajax had 7 wins and 2 draws in 1971–72 and 7 wins and 4 draws in 1994–95
Liverpool had 6 wins and 3 draws in 1980–81 and 7 wins and 2 draws in 1983–84
Milan had 5 wins and 4 draws in 1988–89 and 7 wins and 5 draws in 1993–94
Manchester United had 5 wins and 6 draws in 1998–99 and 9 wins and 4 draws in 2007–08

Name the only teams to have won the three major UEFA official Cups, namely UEFA Champions League/European Cup, UEFA Cup Winners' Cup, and UEFA Cup/Europa League
Somere (Portmore Utd) 2 years ago
I think its liverpool
TheBarcaShow (Footytube Staff) 2 years ago
Barcelona. I don't think they won it under the name UEFA Cup though  
LumpOfCelery (Chelsea) 2 years ago
Liverpool
Zlatan94310 (PSG) 2 years ago
Barcelona won the UEFA Cup Winners' Cup against PSG at The Kuip stadium, Ronaldo scoring from the penalty spot. Crazy atmosphere.

Dunno if they won the UEFA Cup though
Sam (Juventus) 2 years ago
Clue: The question said teamS.... Not just one team
ManUK (Manchester United) 2 years ago
Liverpool, Barcelona, and Celtic?
Kimaway17 (Liverpool) 2 years ago
Liverpool Barcelona
Tony (footytube staff) 2 years ago
The uefa cup/europa league was the former cup winners cup, so man utd must be one, unless you mean someone won the cup winners cup, champions league, and the NOW europa cup, if that's the case, skip united.... Lol
We need clarification.... Lol, do you mean they won 3 seperate trophies?
As I count the europa league as the old cup winners cup, and therefore the same competition
Joseph911 (Manchester United) 2 years ago
I think Ajax, Bayern Munich, and Juventus are the only 3 teams that have won all 3 tournaments
TheBarcaShow (Footytube Staff) 2 years ago
Yeah it is kind of confusing but I assume which teams have won it under the numerous different titles
Sam (Juventus) 2 years ago
Yeah, under the titles given, Joseph911 is right- just 3 teams have won all three: Ajax, Bayern Munich and Juventus
Donnchadh (Liverpool) 2 years ago
Who has the most World Cup goals for Holland?
Jesuriya (AS Roma) 2 years ago
Patrick Kluivert
Donnchadh (Liverpool) 2 years ago
Good guess but no dice my friend
ManUK (Manchester United) 2 years ago
Dennis Bergkamp?
Joseph911 (Manchester United) 2 years ago
Your question isn't very clear, if you are looking for who scored the most World Cup goals for The Netherlands in 1 world cup then the answer is 5 goals and that was accomplished 3 different times, Johan Neeskens in 1974, Rob Rensenbrink in 1978, and Wesley Sneijder in 2010. If you want to know who has the most all time World Cup goals for The Netherlands then the answer is Johnny Rep, he scored 7 goals, 4 in 1974 and 3 in 1978
Donnchadh (Liverpool) 2 years ago
Ya I was talking about career goals, and Rep is correct. You either have a tremendous knowledge of footballing history haha or you are getting a little help from your friends aka the internets. It's all good man, just try and use your knowledge and not use google or wikpedia cheers, if you didn't use that, I apologize and cheers for the footballing knowledge you possess

FutureMUplayer (Manchester United) 2 years ago
What is the highest stage England managed to get in the World cup after their World cup triumph in 1966?
Donnchadh (Liverpool) 2 years ago
Let me think 98? No they lost to Argentina. Quarters in 86, but I think it was 1970 when they lost to West Germany in the semifinals
Peteko 2 years ago
I think four times in quarter finals: 1970, 1986, 2002 and 2006.  
FutureMUplayer (Manchester United) 2 years ago
Nope
Jesuriya (AS Roma) 2 years ago
They finished fourth in 1990 world cup I think so...
FutureMUplayer (Manchester United) 2 years ago
Correct Jesuriya
Joseph911 (Manchester United) 2 years ago
England's highest finish in the World Cup following their 1966 triumph was when they finished in 4th place at the 1990 World Cup in Italy. They lost to Italy in the third place match 2-1, Italy's goals were scored by Baggio and Schillaci, while England's goal was scored by Platt
Peteko 2 years ago
Ouch, how did I forget that. The semis against the Germans was epic
Joseph911 (Manchester United) 2 years ago
Epic it was to say the least, hopefully the English can step it up for the Euro's and we may get to see a repeat of Germany vs England in a meaningful match
Sam (Juventus) 2 years ago
Only two clubs have appeared in the final of the Champions league more than once and never lost. Name them

Pretty sure its Forest and can't think of another one
FutureMUplayer (Manchester United) 2 years ago
Oh I got it Porto and Nottingham Forest
ManUK (Manchester United) 2 years ago
Yea Nottingham Forest and Porto have both done it I think
Sam (Juventus) 2 years ago
FutureMUplayer right on the mark! Nottingham Forest (1979 and 1980) and Porto (1987 and 2004 with the Special One)
Sam (Juventus) 2 years ago
Only two clubs have appeared in the final of the Champions league more than once and never WON. Name them
FutureMUplayer (Manchester United) 2 years ago
Valencia and Stade de Reims
Sam (Juventus) 2 years ago
Right again.... Stade de Reims (1956, 1959; currently play in Ligue 2) and Valencia (2000, 2001)
FutureMUplayer (Manchester United) 2 years ago
Hard to believe that Stade de Reims used to be such a good club and now where they are? Same happened to Leeds and Forest sadly
