Six decades of Cardiff City v Barnsley matches.

A very slight change this week because the 60’s and 70’s questions have been combined – answers tomorrow.

60’s and 70’s. City sold three players to Barnsley in the late 60’s and early 70’s, can you name them and the clubs we signed them from?

80’s. The City team beaten 3-0 by Barnsley at Ninian Park in October 1983 contained three players making their first appearances for the club, can you name them?

90’s. How did Barnsley striker Georgi Hristov upset a section of the club’s support in 1998?

00’s. City beat Barnsley 3-1 at Ninian Park in March 2009, what country does the Barnsley player sent off in that game play for?

10’s. Barnsley have scored five goals in their last two visits to Cardiff City Stadium, but only one of the four players who got them (Jim McNulty) is still at the club. Who is the player who scored both goals in the 2-2 draw in 10/11 and the other two scorers in their 5-3 defeat last season now playing for?


60’s and 70’s. Norman Dean (Southampton), Les Lea (Blackpool) and Frank Sharp (Carlisle).

80’s. Karl Elsey, Nigel Vaughan and Phil Walker (on loan from Rotherham).

90’s. He called Barnsley women “ugly”;-

00’s. Andranik Teymourian plays for Iran.

10’s Andy Gray now plays for Leeds, Danny Drinkwater for Leicester and Ricardo VazTe for West Ham.
