    Default The 'Lockdown' Saints Quiz

    Tried this a few times before, have been pretty good at helping to alleviate boredom.

    The rules:
    1) Questions must be Saints related
    2) Questions must have a definitive single answer
    3) The first correct answer on the thread wins
    4) The person who answers the question right sets the next one.
    5) If the person who answers the question right does not set a new question within 12 hours, the person who sets the previous question goes again.

    I will post a leaderboard here:

    As per post 155

    Perhaps 12 hours was too long a margin.

    Both in the 90’s?

    I know Cťdric was German born, but obviously doesn’t fit..

    If I remember rightly Maik Taylor (goal keeper for NI) was German born... or somewhere in that region

    Pretty sure one of these is Maik Taylor, player for Northern Ireland. (As SKD says above) No idea about the other guy. Perhaps military parents, playing for Wales/Scotland/Northern Ireland again?

    correct, both were born in Germany to parents serving in the armed forces and went onto play for Saints at the same time, Taylor for N Ireland and Nielsen for wales.

    I’ll go...

    Name the 2 forwards involved in a cash + player swap deal in 2007 (neither to or from saints but did involve a manager who would go on to manage us), who would then both go on to play for Saints.

    Bonus point the manager

    Let's go Graham Roberts - not that many caps but unquestionably Southampton born and raised.

    just checked and Bridge according to Wiki which is always 110% correct()..was born in Southampton and moved to Winchester at a young age...with 36 caps, thought it was more than that tbh.

    I think this is correct, but he doesn't qualify under the "raised in Southampton" category as he moved to Winchester when he was a young.

    (NB I was there!! And so wanted him to be a success, like many others!!)

    Yep. He also won us a penalty by virtue of the fact he was so slow he had a ten yard head start on Sol Campbell 30 yards out but still got caught and then threw himself on the floor at the slightest contact. What a signing!

    Omg I’ve knew the last 5 questions when I came back online but they all got answered.

    Was that Chelsea, at Stamford Bridge, with Lurch in goal for them ?
    ( His 2nd was also at the Bridge, and against Lurch ).
