'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Wiseman say Only Fools Rush In-Quiz 1 of 3

Play the Burnley FC Miscellany Quiz & Win the Book

A new book was published recently by Clarets author, the Reverend David Wiseman. Clarets fans may know the life-long Clarets fan from his other books on Burnley FC which include 'Up the Clarets','Vintage Claret' and 'A Case of Vintage Claret'

His latest work is a book entitled 'The Burnley FC Miscellany'



The good news also is that the publishers, Breedon Publishing have provided Vital Burnley with three copies of the new book to give away free in our competitions this season.

We can now announce that readers and posters have a chance to win the book in our first competition to be held on Wednesday 25th November from 7:30pm.

We will be taking 26 questions from the book which will, in the style it is written have topics beginning with the letter A-Z in alphabetical order

You will have two options if you don't know the answers,you can spend ages looking up the answers(eg via Google)or you can have a guess immediately. The latter may be your best tactic as speed is of the essence.

Three points will be awarded to the player who can get the right answer to me the quickest. Each player giving me the right answer no matter how long it takes within the timeframe will also get one point.

So how do you get the answers to me? You can use any method you like that confirms the day and time you sent me the answers.

If you want to show your hand you can post your answers below the article. Quickest right answer gets three points all other right answers get one point.

You can however also use the Vital Burnley Private Message facility in the forums or you can send me an email to:

burnley@vitalfootball.co.uk

If I receive answers from posters with the same time on them and that time is the quickest all will receive three points.

There is just one rule, you can't cheat and obtain or borrow a copy of the 'Burnley FC Miscellany' book and look up the answers.

If you want to play then make a note in your diaries and be on the site from 7:30 pm on the night of Wednesday 25th November to be in with a chance of being the quickest.

The questions will be posted below this article and if nobody has provided me with the right answer within 5 minutes I will provide multi-choice options and the cycle will begin again.

I would also like to know in advance if you would like to play, so please indicate below this article.

Let the fun begin!

Sorry I had to postpone this previously but now I hope to run the whole quiz over one night and see how it goes. We have seven names so far who said previously they would be interested in playing the quiz: 8clarets8, Claretdale , Programme Collector, Rickers Twickers, Palsdad, Colin Waldron and sheclaret Please could those of you mentioned confirm this date will be OK for you and would all those others interested playing please indicate below [Edited by turfmanphil]
turfmanphil
Damn I was hoping for multiple choice from the start ;-) I will give it a shot! I can always copy from the answer above me "joking"
8clarets8
Balls I'm going to Majorca for a week on Saturday so thats me out
colinwaldron
Nip into an internet cafe CW it has got to be better than sun, sea, sand and beer? well maybe not have a good time though ;-)
8clarets8
It's going to be difficult to get everybody available at this rate,CW but there will be two more quizzes later if you have to miss out on this one. 8c8, since we aint done these before, the quiz might evolve as we go along
turfmanphil
We can only see on the night? I have hosted quizzes on other network sites not the easiest job to do! It should be fun ;-)
8clarets8
Cheers 8c8, sorry to be missing out but good luck to everyone taking part
colinwaldron
I may change the date yet again CW depending on who can make Wed 18th so keep checking before you go on holiday
turfmanphil
Started reading the book last night. Really enjoying it. Perfect for reading a few pages at a time before nodding off each night... or in 'some other place' where you spend a few minutes each day. The only problem is it's really interesting, and you might end up with people banging on the door saying it's their turn!
Couch Potato
You playing the quiz next Wed then CP? (although might change to week later)
turfmanphil
The school have called a governors meeting next wed evening it starts at 5-30 but these things drag on a bit, maybe late home touch and go whether I can make it.
Grimsby Claret
Does anybody think a week after will be better? So far CW and GC might be in then?
turfmanphil
Week after wed 25th better for me.
Grimsby Claret
OK GC, will see how it goes
turfmanphil
Phil dont be postponing it just on my account, I will happily go along with whatever is decided
colinwaldron
I have put it back CW by a week so we should have more options now. GC should be in now too
turfmanphil
I'll be available whether it is this week, next or the one after !
RickersTwickers
Right thats it then, 25th it is, at least five so far will now be playing
turfmanphil
A Champions league night!! that's me out! only joking i will be there or should that read here?
8clarets8
Oh bugger is it? Sigh
turfmanphil
Count me in for the 25th. Havent got or read the book though will try my best, but even if I get the answers all wrong it will be fun.
Grimsby Claret
I am useless so I will give it a go, I have a large collection of wooden spoons and a host of vacuous answers and no book and no idea how to google!
VinRogue
Great stuff, I make that six then so far with CW, GC, 8c8, CP, RT and VR and I think a couple more at least are still to confirm (ClaretDale & Sheclaret)
turfmanphil
Palsdad as well I think. Gav?
turfmanphil
..and just checking further back,programme collector as well. So that's potentially four more if you could all confirm on here
turfmanphil
I wondered if it might be easier to hold this quiz in the Vital Burnley chat room? this would save us from having to refresh or go back into the link and it seems a shame it never gets used? just a thought?
8clarets8
Should be OK on here 8c8, the disadvantage of the chat room is that VB will not then get the extra hits and refreshing on this article will increase those hits and hence more money wil be raised for club. I am just going to go for it and adapt as we go along if need be. We should really use the chatroom more often though, maybe we should have a chat night sometime on a special topic?
turfmanphil
Having just got used to this PC lark if I have to go to a chatroom for gods sake someone tell me where and how.....
VinRogue
Sounds ok to me Phil - I should be OK most Wednesdays
Claretdale
No VR just a suggestion, It will be here pal ;-) I like the idea of some of us getting together on a subject though through the VB chat room at sometime?
8clarets8
Great stuff, so so far: 8c8, CD, VR, GC, CW, CP, RT and a maybe from Palsdad
turfmanphil
Anymore for anymore? Sheclaret & Programme-Collector can thee make it?
turfmanphil
A maybe from me, but I have bought and started reading the book. Because of that I haven't been paying attention or really grasped where I have to be when to join the quiz. But, if I happen to see some questions and feel like answering them in sporadic fashion, I hope I don't upset anybody!
Couch Potato
Just be here at 7:30pm next Wed and go for it CP!! lol ;-)
turfmanphil
why isnt Mr Barnes getting involved? Hes not scared surely? :-)
Claretdale
good point, cd, :)
Couch Potato
Will have to get out the knuckle dusters and thumb screws! We might not be able to recognise him now though behind all that facial hair!! Go compare!!
turfmanphil
I am giving him a lift to the game tomorrow - I am a bit worried about it attacking me to be honest!
Claretdale
I'd have a Bic razor in my pocket just in case!
turfmanphil
..or just to be on the safe side, one of them electric razors that works off the car 'ciggy lighter' :-)
turfmanphil
Not very good at spelling do you accept spelling mistakes phil.?
Grimsby Claret
Yep as long as you dont spell Blake as Guererro!! ;-)
turfmanphil
How long will the quiz last 26 questions up to 5 minutes per question. going to be a couple of hours by the sound of it.
Grimsby Claret
I am going to play it by ear GC, see how we get on. Each question will have two stages. Chance to know or guess answer without multiple choice and if nobody gets it right multiple choice options. Will allow one minute to answer each question by each route (max 2 mins) plus two minutes for me to review answers/put up questions, so 26 times 4 or 104 mins so yes about 1-2 hours
turfmanphil
Hope you are all going to be around at 7:30pm today. I am going to start by seeing if we can do everything on this article by posting the answers here. It will be done as follows: 1. Each question in order with a Category A-Z 2. One minute to answer without any clues or multiple choice, 3 points for first right answer posted, 1 point for other corect answers 3. Repeat with a clue if no correct answer 4. Repeat with multiple choice if no still no correct answer
turfmanphil
Anyone logged in yet? Im getting nervous :D
Grimsby Claret

Claretdale
Yep I am here too though I think my answers will be a wild stab in the dark but will give it a shot :-)

RickersTwickers
F=First league double
turfmanphil
Is that some kind of clue to the meaning of life, 8c8?
Couch Potato

Couch Potato
Pity it wasnt Rovers, Bolton is correct,did you know Dale or a wild guess/ 3 to Dale only
turfmanphil
Perhaps it could be like the Six Nations and spread over a few weeks to build up the anticipation. Though this is more entertaining than rugby.
RickersTwickers
I think the last time me and technology had this much fun I was sticking needles in my eyes whilst operating a video recorder
VinRogue
I think the last time me and technology had this much fun I was sticking needles in my eyes whilst operating a video recorder
VinRogue

Claretdale

RickersTwickers

Grimsby Claret
Grezza
VinRogue

Couch Potato
No! Coyle. Scored for the resrves.
Couch Potato

VinRogue

8clarets8
Full House,Grezza it was also a G, but dale gets the 3
turfmanphil
VR might get a bonus there of 1 lol-OK H=Hat-trick Heartbreak

VinRogue
VR?
turfmanphil

Couch Potato
albania england b
8clarets8
Phil, are you going to post a league table?
Grimsby Claret
Wales it was 3 again to Dale, 1 to GC/RT and final one for tonight coming up..
turfmanphil
Early twenties I think - maybe even before the FWW ?
RickersTwickers
Wales would be a good shout lol
VinRogue
J=Jimmy Jimmy! Which Jimmy wrote a book in 1983 called ‘Book of Lists’ in which accolades were given to both Jimmy Mac and Jimmy Adamson? CLUE-Not a Claret
turfmanphil

Claretdale
Wales game 1927
turfmanphil
Greaves
Couch Potato
oh - didnt read the clue - whoops!
Claretdale
At the height of his showbiz career.... Greaves.
RickersTwickers
geaves
Grimsby Claret
Dammit. My equipment malfunctioned, and I lost precious seconds there. I vote for refs behind the goal rather than video.
Couch Potato
greaves i mean
Grimsby Claret
VR?
turfmanphil
Crankey or Hill lol
VinRogue
Slightly off topic, but I have a question - Why are Hull 3-0 up?
Claretdale
8c8 off the mark the quickest greaves it was and BREATHE while I do a quick check
turfmanphil
It will keep Everton below us Dale
8clarets8
What's teh Rovers score?
Couch Potato
Dale has most 3 scores of 5, GC has 2 and RT/8c8 one each but you all have some scores,will siummarise for tomoz in table for Round 2 can you all be here same time @ 7:30pm?
turfmanphil
Think that might be because Everton are hopeless at the moment Dale. Sure Moyes is secure enough but might they be keeping a close eye on Mr Coyle ?
RickersTwickers
What do you think, game needs a little refinement but it has something to commend it?
turfmanphil
Jimmy Crankey or Jimmy Hill I have been better than useless. I cant get the up and down thing working and I don't know the answers. Missed F5 and went off on a cyber adventure, laughed so much I have been to the loo. Am confident of propping this quiz up.
VinRogue
I should be OK, although it might be a little tight. Rovers 0-0 CP. Everton will not finish below us though 8c8 - Hull hopefully will!
Claretdale
Didn't I get a 3 score on Irvine?
Couch Potato
I can make it
8clarets8
yeah, thats fine
Grimsby Claret
Sorry CP my mistake,yep 1 three
turfmanphil
I quite enjoyed it Phil - but yes I would say it needs a little refinement as it has been quite time consuming. Maybe putting more than 1 question on at a time? Not sure.
Claretdale
So were in 12th right?
Couch Potato
OK will reconvene tomorrow at 7:30pm
turfmanphil
Goodnight
Couch Potato
I should be ok TMP. This has been good fun so far. Bit of tweaking maybe perhaps with answers being by secret ballot if you REALLY wanted to take it seriously ....but has been some good natured badinage and at least we've registered a few hits.
RickersTwickers
Ill think about it for tomorrow. This has been an experiment. I have another two books to give away after this so we will get it better
turfmanphil
Its a bit tough for me tmp as not that pc literate and useless where BFC memory is concerned, but will be back tomorrow to give it a go!
VinRogue
Well I am off! see you all tomorrow :-) over 200 comments must be a record take care
8clarets8
I could revert to timestamp answers via email or PM?
turfmanphil
Bye all
turfmanphil
It works quite well for me - generally i will either know the answer straight away, or I wont know. So i can just type the first thing I think of
Claretdale
Rovers losing.
Claretdale
Just to say we have now gone above Blackburn in the Vital League Hooray ;-)
8clarets8
A good night.
Couch Potato
