The Fiendish Friday Quiz


28th, September 2007


It’s that time of the week again, when Pies twists your brains into fiendish shapes…
1 Albacete Balompié, Real Zaragoza, Real Madrid, Liverpool, Valencia (current). Whose career path?
2 Which phantom-like Dutch star has the middle names ‘Rudolphus’ and ‘Antonius’?
3 Picture round. Which Premier League defender?
4 In which country was Germany striker Miroslav Klose born?
5 Apart from Crewe Alexandra, can you name the other two English clubs managed by Dario Gradi?
6 The club crest challenge:
Answers after the click…

1 Fernando Morientes
2 Roy Makaay
3 Alvaro Arbeloa
4 Poland
5 Wimbledon and Crystal Palace
6 Eintracht Frankfurt
Any six-pointers out there? Come on down…

    Yes! Damn! Damn! Yes! Damn! Oh shit i was close!
    Only the fiendish friday quiz can make that happen!

  2. Forn says:

    The 1 one is not true, you didn’t say anything about Monaco and Fernando played there for one year.
    Only 2/6.

  3. Ollie, Pies Ed. says:

    I don’t count loan moves Forn

  4. Łupek says:

    Forn is right, omitting AS Monaco was not good.
    Question 2 is virtually impossible, as Ruud and Antonius are common Dutch names.
    We all love the Quizes, how about having them 5 times a week, or at least three?
    I bet some of the readers would help, perhaps by making one a month?
    What y’all think?

  5. I would also have found the first, hadn’t you forget to mention Monaco
    but my score wouldn’t have been better than 3/6, I only managed to have Poland and Eintracht Frankfurt right
    I didn’t recognize Arbeloa, and I don’t understand why Roy Makaay is phantom-like (I thought it was Guus Hiddink, as he doesn’t turn up at Stamford Bridge yet)
    at last, the Dario Gradi question was way too difficult for me (I have even no idea of who he is)

  6. Matthew Burke says:

    I totally agree with Lupek, very nice idea
    Fiendish Friday Quiz is my favourite release, and I’d love to have more
    What about a Maniac Monday Quiz and a Wasteful Wednesday Quiz ?
    I am ready to help, and it would be great if Pies let me do one

  7. Ollie, Pies Ed. says:

    I know that the quiz is popular with you guys, and have been considering doing another type of quiz (maybe a picture quiz) once a week. Thanks for your offers of support though – I may also consider having one reader’s question in each Fiendish Friday Quiz
    Ollie, Pies Ed.
    PS I DON’T count loan moves in career path questions, and never have!

  8. Ollie, Pies Ed. says:

    Oh, and Roy Makaay’s nickname at Bayern was Das Phantom, so that was a big clue!

  9. oliver says:

    4/6, missed Makaay and Gradi’s clubs.
    Come on guys, if you’re not going to get Morientes from that list of clubs, then including Monaco isn’t going to help anyway…

  10. kj says:

    1/6. I even missed the crest. Gah.

  11. nicko says:

    3 this time…

  12. Nicky S says:

    I doubt this is the first instance that a loan move has been left out of a player’s club list. Only this time the loan move was more high-profile. Real -> Lpool -> Valencia should be more than enough to work out Morientes.

  13. Alessandro says:


  14. Bleustilton says:

    Morientes, Klose, and Arbeloa
