Clarets quiz question

Post by Tricky Trevor » Thu Apr 09, 2020 9:48 am

Had to pinch this from Dave Roberts twitter account. I’m not sure if he posts on here but his Clarets knowledge is up with the best. I’ll not link it as the answers are already up. No cheating.

📶 Burnleystats Quiz

Q. Burnley have faced 107 different clubs in LEAGUE matches since 1888, and have won away at exactly 100 of them

Today's challenge is to name the other 7⃣ teams Burnley have failed to beat away in the league

I’ll post the answer this evening.

I’m not giving the answers until tonight but I will say that was my first thought and it’s wrong.

I think I saw us win away at Maidstone. 2-1 rings a bell. In our promotion winning season with Conroy etc or maybe the season before ?
I might be wrong....I’ve seen us lose away a lot more in those lower divisions.

I didn’t think we ever won at Scarborough - I thought we lost 3 or 4 games there and I went to at least 3 of them !

Edit - Just seen your post CT. I didn’t go to that game !

Have we ever won at Wigan ?

I think I have been to most the games there and can't recall a win


Question answered before I asked, good service on here :D

Off the top of my head, can't think of any more so the seventh is probably one from years ago.

On the balance of probabilities, I’d say it was when we were in the Second Division in the spell before 1913. More clubs existed, so more of a chance for one to have been in the league for just one season. Middlesbrough Ironopolis?

Not Liverpool, I' ve seen us win there win an Ian Brennan screamer.

The supporters of the club in question ( I don't think it exists now ) probably thought they were too posh to be scousers.

They never got into the 2nd Division though. And this is supposed to be a team we haven’t beaten in the league.

Off topic but saw one of my best gigs at New Brighton.

Outside gig in a big top in the middle of summer 2003 with Coral and Libertines supported by the Thrills, The Bee's and The Basement with the up and coming Zutons opening proceedings.

Was a good time for music and that was one hell of a day/night
