60s. Where was this photo from 1967 taken?


70s. Although he wasn’t playing for Wednesday in this picture, this striker was at that club when he was picked by then England manager Sir Alf Ramsey for a trip to Gibralter in 1973 that he took charge of, who is the player in the photo?


80s. What links these lyrics from a sing that reached the top ten during this decade with Sheffield Wednesday and Cardiff City from around the same time?

“When I stole all the apples that our neighbour grew,
So one must have told ’cause she knew”

90s. Another musical question, there is a common misconception that a former England player’s father was in this band, but the father of this player, who had an injury wrecked spell at Sheffield Wednesday during the late 90’s, was – who is the player and what is the band in question?


00s. It happened once during Joe Ledley’s Cardiff City career and it was at Hillsborough during this decade, to what am I referring?
