Six decades of Cardiff City v Brentford matches.

CoymayBrentford are just about the hardest club to set this quiz for out of the sides we currently play in the Championship, but I’ve managed to come up with six questions, the answers to which will be posted on here tomorrow.

60s. This Brentford player is reputed to have scored three goals from inside his own half in a long career at the club during which he was a fixture in the team in this decade, who is he?

BAFC1

70s. This man enjoyed a short spell at the top of the old First Division during his managerial career, but he is most associated with Brentford having played for them in three decades, including the 70s, who is he?

BAFC2

80s. This man currently combines managing a club at non league level with his “proper” job as a policeman, but he spent much of the 80s playing on the wing for Brentford. He made over 200 appearances for the Bees and was also capped by Wales at Under 21 level, who is he?

90s. He played for City against Brentford during this decade after signing for us from Danson Furness. After leaving Cardiff, he played for, amongst others, Dover, Welling,  Hampton & Richmond, Fisher Athletic and Erith & Belvedere – who am I describing?

00s. This man is a full international who, at one time, held a Premier League record. He also was an unused sub for City in a game with Brentford during this decade, who is he?

BAFC 4

10s. The man pictured was in the last Brentford squad to play here. He also once had a penalty saved while playing against us for another club, who is he?
