This one I am really cranking it up, if too tough I will slackened off tomorrow.

I genuinely think these are the trickiest ones yet, clues will be needed!




1) "He went on to win the Eredivisie title and also reached the final of the KNVB Cup in 2006, losing 1–0 to Ajax in Rotterdam. He joined Manchester City on 31 January 2007 after impressing on a week-long trial, on a six-month contract for a nominal fee. He made his debut ten days later against Portsmouth, and scored his first goal for the club in an FA Cup Fifth Round match against Preston North End on 18 February. He was often used as third-choice captain, when either Richard Dunne (captain) or Micah Richards (vice-captain) were unavailable. On 5 May 2007, in a 1–0 home defeat to Manchester United, he stamped on Cristiano Ronaldo's stomach. This was missed by the referee, and he was subsequently banned for three matches."

Gary Bollan




3) "He joined Sunderland in January 2002 for £1.5 million, but was unable to prevent them from being relegated in the following 2002–03 season. However the 2003–04 season was better, as he helped Sunderland finish third in Division One and reach the FA Cup semi finals yet his services were deemed to be no longer required by manager Mick McCarthy so he joined Wolverhampton Wanderers, who had just been relegated from the Premier League."

Got number one with a bit of thought.

2 was an educated guess due to the clubs and confirmed by the initials.

Had no idea 3 played with Wolves with threw me miles off the scent.

That was a tough one.

Got the first one as I remember we sold him to a Dutch team.
Got the second one as a guess, based on playing for Dundee United before us and later St Johnstone.
But the last one got me, even the initials didn't help.

2/3 and probably now need to drink all day to try to forget the pain.
