I'm stumped so i'll go for Etvin Carl Pauli J°rgensen the oldest active football player in Denmark.

That's the same bloke as in #35, usually known as Pauli J°rgensen.

Have another guess later.

You'll find him in the end and the reason for choosing him should be pretty obvious then.

Is there a ground/stand named after this chap?



Just because you're paranoid, it doesn't mean they're not out to get you.

GOOOOOOOAL and M┼┼┼┼┼┼┼┼L

Carl Skoma'r (shoemaker which was his father's profession) became the first Danish pro player when he signed a contract with Glasgow Rangers in 1921.

Nils Middelboe already played for Chelsea at that time but as an amateur while he worked as a banker in London. Sophus Hansen, the goalkeeper I suspect BigJR was onto, had been offered a contract by Crystal Palece before WWI but turned the offer down and stayed in Denmark.

Carl Skoma'r was one of the best centre forwards of his time, at his peak with Rangers he had attracted a ú5000 bid from an English club. This made him one of the highest valued players of the time, but he broke his leg before a transfer was concluded.

His career was plagued by injuries, twice had he broken his leg before signing with Rangers, and twice he did it while with Rangers. The story goes that when asked about his broken legs, he'd say "It's a tie, 2-all between left and right." The fourth break turned out to be too complicated to continue playing football professionally and he returned to Denmark where he had a distinguished career as coach. Rangers paid him ú10 a week for a year after he had left the club and Carl Skoma'r revealed in a letter that he was in no way displeased to go to the post office each week to collect money for doing absolutely nothing.

His Danish club was B1903 in Copenhagen and they have a nice array of mementos at their clubhouse which was where I picked up the idea to use him for this quiz.

Well done Ropey and over to you!
