Six decades of Cardiff City v Liverpool games.

CoymayAs we have only played Liverpool in the league once in the last six decades, it’s hard to come up with too many questions in the usual format, so I’ve taken a few liberties – answers tomorrow;-

60’s (or earlier).  How old would you have to be to have been alive the last time Liverpool won a league match in Cardiff?

70’s.

Liverpool 1

 

This player scored a league hat trick for Liverpool during this decade, can you name him?

80’s. In an episode of Minder entitled “Looking for Mickey” first broadcast in 1982, Terry McCann says “they should never have sold him to Liverpool” – who are “they” and who is the player who signed for Liverpool?

90’s.

This player made three appearances for Liverpool in cup ties before going on to play almost 500 league matches (the vast majority of which were in this decade) for a  variety of clubs, scoring a hundred goals in all – he was nicknamed “Johnny Lager” by the supporters of one of his clubs, but can you name him?

00’s. Name the former Liverpool keeper who was sent off in a game against City in this decade.

10’s. How are these photos connected?

Answers.

60’s. You’d have to be 84 – Liverpool’s last league win in Cardiff was on 1 April 1929 – in fact, it’s the last time they avoided defeat against City in Wales.

70’s. Phil Boersma.

80’s. The selling club were Fulham and the player was Richard Money.

90’s. John Durnin.

00’s. Scott Carson was sent off while playing for West Brom against us in December 2009.

10’s. Danny Wilson – the three gentleman in the first picture are the Scottish late 80’s band of the same name and the Liverpool player is the Scottish international centreback (who looked such a great prospect at Rangers) currently playing for Hearts.
