Seems the Teutonic Tuesday Quiz was a little too easy. Far too many correct answers for my liking.

Here’s today’s bafflers. I’ve included a couple of stinkers that you’ll hopefully find more than a little taxing…

    @Calum: That’s what it says in my little football trivia book, but a closer look at the archives on Boro’s official site says it was actually the 11th Jan.

    I can’t rely on this goddamn book for anything!
