Six decades of Cardiff City v Fulham games.

Coymay

Some of the preamble to a couple of the questions this week may not be correct because I’m relying on my memory having not been able to find information on the Internet to back it up. However, I don’t believe that any errors I might have made make a difference to the actual questions themselves – answers tomorrow.

60’s. Fulham suffered a second consecutive relegation in 1968/69 despite having a World Cup winner, an England international who won 56 caps for his country and a member of the Tottenham 60/61 double side in their squad. From memory, all of them were in the team we beat 5-1 at Craven Cottage in December 1968 in my first City away game, but can you name them?

70’s. From my research it looks like George Best only ever played twice at Ninian Park. The second time was for a Fulham side beaten 3-1 here in September 1977, do you recall the first time he played in Cardiff?

80’s. This international only played for the one club and retired from the game in the early part of this decade. In the late 70’s he scored a winning goal for City against Fulham and in the 90’s he was delivering mail to my house – who am I talking about?

90’s. As far as I can gather, this last happened in a City match in a home win over Scunthorpe in February 2001, but it also did in the 3-3 draw with Fulham at Ninian Park in April 1990, what unusual   occurrence do I mean?

00’s. During this decade Fulham were managed by an ex English international, an ex French international, an ex Welsh international and an ex Northern Irish international, can you name them?

10’s. This player has a Cardiff City connection, who is he playing for now?

Fulham player

    That’s the best I’ve ever done at one of your quizzes! I got the 70s, 80s, 00s right and a bit of the 60s – doesn’t say much does it!

    Congratulations on being the first person ever to comment on here on one of my quizzes Lisa – wait until you see what I’ve got lined up on Friday to celebrate my fiftieth anniversary!

    Well done by the way – I’m impressed you got Keith Pontin and Paul Bracewell.
