  • Well here we are in Week Two. At the moment we have three people within a point or two of each other jostling for Pole Position but it is early days and the Extra Bonus Points on offer for stumping Me & Eastneydave with one of your own questions are sure to play a part in the final reckoning. So thinking caps on and see if you can answer this week questions and also think of your own question that you can pose to us. As it stands PompeyFrippy and Gino look to have us well and truly stumped and Sneaky has us in a quandary about the colour of John Utaka?s boots! Think YOU know your stuff about Pompey? Come on Join in and you may just win that Mystery Prize.

  • Hurray, something that will keep me up for hours! Hope my little brain teaser isn’t keeping you up at night Chix!

  • No Frippy I am fast asleep …. Now where was I .. oh yeah dreaming of Cheryl Cole, Victoria Beckham, Abbey Clancy. Richard Hughes, Lassans Diarra, Kanu, Kanu (again), Diop, Kanu (yet agian), Diop (again) and one other …Any ideas who it might be ?

  • Having spoken to Dave, he informs me that this quiz has a bit of a misleading title…. he says it is all down to you, Chix!! Is the mystery prize getting named as Southampton boss?! 😛

  • Well Chix, I was at the Eastney Tavern on Sunday night, and my friends came along also. I had previously mentioned the question that I posed, and my friend then proceeded to say the answer, quite loudly, right next to Dave!! Hope he didn’t hear…. :-s

  • If he did Gino he hasn’t told me.. I’m still thinking but I don’t think I’m gonna get it without a clue (but don’t give me one yet) .. the only thing that I can not disprove at the moment is that they are all left footed but I’m convinced they are not .. In fact I’m sure they are not .. But just can’t rule it out categorically.

  • No worries – well when you want a clue let me know, I’ll have to think of a clue that won’t give the answer away! Left footed players? I won’t comment!

  • If he did Gino he hasn’t told me.. I’m still thinking but I don’t think I’m gonna get it without a clue (but don’t give me one yet) .. the only thing that I can not disprove at the moment is that they are all left footed but I’m convinced they are not .. In fact I’m sure they are not .. But just can’t rule it out categorically.

  • Gino I’ve decided that you have got the question wrong there is nothing that links Basinas, Diop, Belhadj, Kanu & Utaka together whatsoever … All I can think of is that it is so obscure we are never gonna get it .. either that or the answer will start with something like … ‘Other than’… or ….’Except’ and exclude a group of players that I have been including… I reckon that it has to be something to do with them being Internationals and there is no link to their Pompey profile.. and ‘if’ International there is nothing that group have done which on of James or Hermann or Crouchy or Kranjcar haven’t done… Actually come to think of it Kanu isn’t in our squad at the mo .. so I could declare the question invalid 😉 .. I wouldn’t do that mate … but I am utterly convinced you rather than I have missed something… This is gonna be a big victory for you 10 Extra Points !! If I don’t get it tonight – I want the answer not a clue .. I can then concentrate on Frippy’s question…

  • Okay Chix – I can tell you right now that there definately IS something that links Basinas, Diop, Belhadj, Kanu and Utaka – and no other member of Pompey’s current squad fit it! And it’s not as obscure as you might think, but I admit it’s not blindingly obvious! I won’t give you a clue unless you ask for it, but I will check this article regularly tonight, ready to claim my ten Bonus Points!

  • The answer is……. They are the only members of the current Pompey squad that play international football…..with a different international squad number to the one that they play with at Portsmouth! Basinas (33 for PFC and 6 for Greece), Utaka (17 for PFC and 7 for Nigeria), Kanu (27 for Pompey, 4 for Nigeria), Diop (8 for PFC and 19 for Senegal) and Belhadj (39 for PFC and 3 for Algeria). It’s easy when you know it…..

  • Sorry Gino but You are wrong! I thought of that and went though the current squad and checked their international squad numbers.. I thought perhaps that might be your answer even though it was pushing it a little with regard to Crouchy being Englands No9 and also as technically England do not wear squad numbers unless they are in a tournament so it depends on whose playing whether he gets No9 or not .. but that aside … You have missed something .. I did check and check again with you… but you were adamant 😉 Now you have to work out why you are wrong !! Chix wins ! I’m affraid.. Right… now on to Frippy’s question Thinking cap on !

  • It’s not Herman, or Kranjcar, or James, or even Richard Hughes .. I’m not even talking David Nugent … But there is another current Pompey squad member that has a different squad number for Pompey than he does for his country… and yes it is the ‘Full’ international squad .. in fact according to he was in the squad for the last international his country played

  • Dave – Herman does indeed wear number 7 for Iceland. If I work out the player Chix can I have some points? Chix I did look at Crouchy because he has worn all sorts of numbers, but he had No 9 for the last qualifier so I went for that!! I’m gutted, absolutely gutted….. and if you are talking about a certain Aaron Mokoena Chixy then that is so cheating because he hasn’t got a Pompey squad number yet and the points should be mine!

  • If I was thinking about Aaron Mokena Gino then that would be unfair (although technically right) but I’m not .. And no you can’t have any points for working out why I’m right and you’re wrong .. Must admit I’m loving this !!

  • Kranjcar? According to Wiki he’s squad number 8 – which is utter garbage, he’s ALWAYS 19!! You would be loving it, although it’s a MASSIVE technicality – if I’d asked the question months ago I probably would have been right!!
