18/20

don´t think I would do anywhere near as well with current grounds

as they all look much the same

not those of yore who reflect the times of fat, and of lean for the club

with all manner of odd shaped stands and neglected areas

17/20, the trick for me was to try to recognise the terrace or stand on one long side or behind the goals from TV coverage ‘back in the day’. I still managed to get the corrugated roof at Newcastle wrong (Watford had one similar..., grrr!). The Kippax at Maine Road was one impressive stand though, I can remember my time at Manchester Business School and staying on the upper floors of the residential block- you could see that stand in the distance, towering over the surrounding housing.

4/20

a very honest post

So people who put down that they have got a low score are honest and anyone who claims to have got a high score is dishonest.....

I see.

I got 12/20, so I guess that makes me roughly half honest and half dishonest......

or half wit, judging by your post 😋

the 'honest' post in reply to K LO was nothing more than a light hearted joke at the thought that anyone would think it was worth while 'cheating' - and the quiz was merely something I thought might be of interest while we sit out this fortnight's break, that's all

so try not to see malice in things that aren't there 🤝 (handshake)

By implication. If he is saying someone putting a low score down of 4/20 is being "very honest", then the implication is that people who do the opposite down and put a high score are not being honest.........after all he'd already had a dig at Tilly for putting down 20/20...... 😁

Very difficult to make accusations based on what somebody didn't say.

Bit like saying remain won the referendum because those who didn't vote were happy with the status quo. Maybe a reasonable thought but very difficult to sustain.

Lakey, it was intended as nothing more than light hearted banter between those I trust to recognise that

And for the record the 'complaints' against me are all too often that I don't imply things - I state quite bluntly...

as I am of the opinion that idiots are best not being patronised and told they are an idiot instead.....................saves time 😊

Now why not see the aim behind the thread ie taking time to make a positive contribution to the forum, as with Bill TV thn thinking I was trying to accuse people of 'cheating' a ruddy quiz... so lets have a group hug, join hands and sing COME BY YA MY LORD (?)

14/20 but at least 3 were pretty lucky guesses so should have scored 11/20.
