Number 9 quiz on lcfc.com

Has anyone attempted this yet?

I input my answers yesterday and got 50% and should have done better looking at the answers but I had a sleepless night over the answer to 2008 for 3 reasons :

1. I have no recollection of this player at all even though I was a season ticket holder at the time.

2. In view of this, I dread to think what mental damage I have done to my young son at the time, also a season ticket holder at the time.

Lastly - how did we manage to win the league just eight seasons later?

If anyone can enlighten me with any details of this player (no name so as not to spoil the quiz) I would be grateful.

I got 6 out of 10. I really should have got the one from 94-96; didn't give it enough thought.

Regarding the one from 2008, I remember him, just not him wearing number 9. He was alright, although his debut was an absolute shocker.

However, I'm convinced they missed one from the list: I answered Carl Cort and it wasn't accepted. However, a check online shows that he was indeed our number 9 at the start of the 07/08 season. (The given 2008 answer arrived in January and took up his recently-vacated number.)

Incidentally, the squad list that season from Wikipedia makes grim reading.

Although I had to laugh at:

"Supporters' Club Player of the Season: N/A"

Grim times indeed Dunge.

Nothing beats the days of Martin Allen coming in with his blue flowers, belief in one DJ Campbell and the new YouTube Ronaldo that turned out to be Hossein Kaebi.

I’m glad we can laugh about all that now 😂

Carl Cort I do remember and he was no. 9 at the start of that season.

Taken the plunge and checked the squad, dire indeed. I dread to think what your player ratings would have been, Dunge!

To be honest, we'd been creaking for a few seasons, with a high turnover of players and it wasn't a surprise to me that we finally succumbed to relegation.
Fortunately, we regrouped quickly and avoided the fate of other clubs struggling to get out of the third tier. The rest, as they say, is history.
