    I've got a few minutes to kill and have no idea myself as to the answers, so I looked them up...

    5/10 :tup:

    Fabianksi, Lössl, Begovic, Magure and Mawson are indeed all correct. Still another five to go

    To offer an olive branch, Barra, even though you already know, one of the players was Australian. ;)

    Pickford is definitely in there. I can't even think of any other footballers right now. It's going to be defenders or midfielders from the promoted teams though isn't it?

    Adding Pickford to the list that's 6/10.

    The remaining clubs of the four remaining players are Brighton, Brighton, Huddersfield and Burnley.

    :lol:

    I couldn't name a single player from Brighton or Huddersfield if I tried, and I think I've got one in my fantasy team.

    You don't but you do have the other missing player in your fantasy team. :lol:

    Edit:- Oh no he missed one match, likely suspension. :ouch: Oh actually I was right initially, checking stats made me mess up. :censored: :banghead:

    Still missing others though and like you I have no clue on Brighton or Huddersfield.

    Although just to add to my misery if had I guessed the three players on gut instinct alone I'd have been correct, so they are guessable but as I just looked on the fantasy site, me saying who they are now would be cheating. :dunce::O;)

    I know one of the Brighton one is Matthew Ryan but as for the rest I haven’t a clue.

    Ryan and Dunk are correct regarding Brighton players, it's the Burnley and Huddersfield players you guys still need. Mee missed a number of games this season through injury and Schindler got a red card (I know this because he was in my fantasy team at the time of course).

    Revival!

    Not including White Hart Lane, there are ten former stadiums in the Premier League era which are now defunct and/or demolished.

    Name them.

    Roker Park and Ayrsome Park are definitely in there. I'll have to think about others.


    One that's been bugging me recently is when was the last time a club replaced a caretaker manager with a caretaker manager? We sacked Luhukay in December and Lee Bullen took over on a caretaker basis. Then we appointed Steve Bruce but he won't start until February so Steve Agnew has the job as caretaker until then.

    Both are correct. Ayresome closed in 1995 and Roker closed in 1998.

    The most recent I can recall is Howard Wilkinson and then Peter Taylor being caretaker managers of England in 2000. Wilkinson, an FA director, was the immediate caretaker manager following Kevin Keegan's resignation and his only game was a 0-2 defeat against France. Taylor, at his peak with Leicester being in the top six of the Premier League, was caretaker manager for three months after the FA failed to reappoint Bobby Robson and his only game was a 0-1 defeat against Italy.

    They certainly did when Highbury closed in 2006.

    Highfield Road. Coventry, although very much not Premier League any more, play at the Ricoh. Don't know if Highfield Road is houses now though.

    I couldn't think of it when I was typing my post, and had to get back to work.

    Were Bolton still in Burnden Park when they were in the Premier League, or had they gone to the Reebok by then?

    I think they had already moved. I’m not sure but I think the other one might be Cardiff but I’m not 100% on when they moved from Ninian Park

    Both correct.

    Bolton still played at Burnden Park for their first Premier League season in 1995/96, where they were relegated, before the stadium closed at the end of the following season.

    Derby County's first season in the Premier League was also at their former ground, the Baseball Ground, before that too closed at the end of the 1996/97 season.

    That's all 10 and gives @Famine or @SuperDiscoDaz the chance to ask a question.
