I think another one for Chris and the ambiguities panel. Without getting Sarumio involved (he likes those geography things) the point of reference should be good ol' wiki again. Even though it is as reliable as (insert unreliable thing here) when it is on the blink.

Just to confirm. Most Croatian clubs starts with "NK", which should exclude them, right?

Q: Is it Br÷ndby IF?

Dangerous question that Lars. If he says yes, it gives someone else a scramble for the tap in.

Lars, if the Croatian clubs start with "NK" on wikipedia then they are excluded as they do not fall within A-L.

And the answer is not Br÷ndby IF

A little reminder.

This one is set for a midnight scramble - unless someone who hasn't guessed sneeks in and gets the winner - so be aware of the strict rules that still exists regarding post times. Effectively the first correct guess with a post date stamped 11 March wins. Anyone who is trigger happy and posts on 10 March is disqualified.

Everyone okay with that? And are you available at that time Paul? Laugh

I'll be here, Jamesie. I'm expecting a mad scramble so may just sit back until 12.05/12.10 and then kill a few questions/guesses in one go Cool

Oh, then the answer I was pretty confident about isn't right. I think this name thing is really a bit muddled. For example would FC K°benhavn count as an "F" or a "K" or even "C" as in Copenhagen.

Br°ndby are from Copenhagen so I had counted that out because of the 300,000 limit.

Oh, my nerves... CrazyCrazy My hands were shaking! Wink
Well, perhaps you will do the tap in..? (If Br÷ndby had been correct, I had the guess written and just had to push "Post reply".)
Anyway, you should give me some sort of trophy for being THE worst guesser forever... I seem to always pick the wrong ones. Actually, I think it started when you chose the worse team in the 2nd worst football country, instead of Historical's FC! Tongue

By the way... you probably felt relieved it was me who posted again, and not someone with a guess left to make today...

They're FC Copenhagen on Wikipedia, Michael, so I'd consider F as the first letter for the purposes of this game (#258)

I may as well continue my domination of this competition, post wise and word wise.
According to English wikipedia I interpreted Br÷ndby as not being part of Copenhagen (which surprised me a bit). It seems to be a kommun/kommune/municipality of its own. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Br%C3%B8ndby And F K and C all were OK letters.
(I notice AIK, is being listed as coming from Solna, though we think of it as a very Stockholm club. I trust you're right. Maybe another one for the ambigiousuisity thread...)

Come on and make a guess now, if you haven't already. I think 60 % of my wins have come with you as the quizmaster.

Actually FC K°benhavn on Danish wiki Wink. And we don't like them around here!

You've been completely clear with the naming in this quiz, Paul, no problem. However, I would in general think that prefixes like FC, AFC or AC shouldn't be included as part of the name but perhaps this is another ambiguity for Chris to decide on and write some guidelines.

The first non-English side to beat Manchester City in Manchester in European competitions.

As Paddy was quicker I'll obviously retract my guess Wink.

No idea why you've chosen this if it's right, but I've excluded all NK teams from Croatia, all the Copenhagen clubs and those who haven't made it into Europe... so...

Q: Are they from Croatia?
G: HNK Cibalia?
Look I've even done a picture Laugh Not that I've been waiting long... Ooh look, their nickname is "Nebesko plavi (The Sky-blues)" and their home kit is the exact same as Sheffield FC's away kit. Hmmm, did you know Cibalia is Croatian for Blackburn?

POST REPLY..... NOW!

Have I won? Angelic HA!!! I came fourth and came up with a completely different answer Laugh
