2. 108

3. 14

4. 18

5. 2??

6. 50

7. Don't know. Will have to look that up

8. 14

9. 48

10. Don't remember that
7. Steve's right, just 12. Awesome. Included six sixes in an over.

10. According to my Rothmans he wore 7 for the first 7 games, then 8 for four more before going tp Man U, where he wore 7 again.

Thanks Les, interesting quiz

A correction to Question 2 - its 106, not 108. It was Bobby Moore that got 108 caps.
Question Author
OK. Firstly, question 10 appears to have thrown up a problem. I have it on good authority that Cantona wore the number 14 shirt at Leeds, but on checking it appears that squad numbering didn't come in until 93/94 when, of course, he was at Man United. So, having sacked my researcher, the answers to the others (I think are correct) are as follows:
1. 30
2. 106
3. 14
4. 18
5. 2 (finished second in 1975 and 76)
6. 50
7. 12 (WOW)
8. 14
9. 48
10. See above.

Well done all.
