     Twenty Questions #224   or Reply Privately

Thank you Michael, was sitting on that one for a few hours and completely missed your clue first time around with the link between Segar Bastard and William Foulke. Then everything seemed to fit into place particularly your hint that he was never a professional footballer.

Anyway, Just want to wish all the people who take part in the 20Q quiz a Happy and peaceful new year. I should be online to pick up any questions and answers until later on this evening and will be online again at some point tomorrow.

Away we go and good luck again to everyone.

I'll kick off then. Is it a ground this time?

A Happy New Year to all 20Q players! It's been great playing this game with you and I'm looking forward to many obscure and interesting quizzes in 2010.

Congratulations Chris41! This seems to be your third victory in a relatively short time!

Q: Is it an event?

Happy new year to everyone from me too! This section has taught me some nice things, like Dean Windass having been sent off three times in a single game, and that East German teams sometimes got re-located due to political reasons, etc. I don't agree however with the one (mip?) saying this is great relaxation, because I personally - especially when I think I may have the correct answer - can get quite excited (though I probably hide it well). Wink

Thank you Lars, your answer to the last quiz was also very good and it could easily have been you that had won.

Yes it is an event/occurrence thing that we are looking for. Now the hunt for that event/Occurrence begins.

Well done Chris, and a Happy New Year. Can't believe I missed the Sheffield FC linked 20Qs!!!!

Did it happen before 1980?

Yes this event/occurrence is part thereof a single match which will form a large part of the correct answer. I also need details of the aftermath of this/these event/events/ in your correct answer. (perhaps giving you extra information there then you asked for).

It looks as if these/this event/events are not that well publicised on the web but can be found if you search hard enough. It is not that obscure !

I'll put in a punt. The "Anschlussspiel" between Austria and Germany in 1938 to mark the "anschluss" between Germany and Austria. As a game between two brother nations, it was supposed to finish a draw but Matthias Sindelar and Karl Sesta thought otherwise and to the chagrin of the nazi-officials scored two goals in the 2nd half.

Later on Matthias Sindelar refused to play in the "All-German" national side. He was found dead in early 1939, cause of death carbonmonooxide poisoning. Rumours had it he might have committed suicide.

No not this particular event MIP, although an interesting story which I did not know.

Seeing your answer, I think I ought to clarify more my answer to Monsieur Pascals question, ref Post 11.

This event/events were part of a match and I also asked for the aftermath of that event. I think that it would be impossible to give the correct answer to this without mentioning the aftermath which was imminent and not say likely to happen a week or month later. If by any chance I do not get the full details to the answer I may ask for a little bit more extra information. Sometimes when you try and give extra help and hints it ends up not being helpful.
I hope that you may get another chance on this tomorrow.

(By the way, did you notice that Michael/mip once again chose to focus on something German?! Wink
Speking about German, but the way... Perhaps you guys should calm down a bit with the mentioning of the wars in this thread and the previous one. I mean, in case there are any Germans around here. Wink )
