Hello, and welcome. Tonight, we are celebrating 25 years of the English
Premier League, where teams have been competing for this magnificent
trophy. I will now hand over to our pitch reporter, Conor McNamara -
-he has the team news for this crucial match.
-Thank you, Sue.
You won't be surprised to hear that both teams have gone for the classic
Question of Sport formation - 1-1-1 -
with the captains taking up the central pivotal position.
Both of these teams have got an attacking thread,
but married with defensive steel as well.
First of all, for AFC Dawson, it's Alex Scott and Dion Dublin!
And facing them, for Tufnell Town, it's Darren Bent and Graeme Le Saux.
I've never played at such a low level!
Thank you very much, looking forward to this one,
and we'll hear more from Connor a little later -
he will be keeping a close eye on proceedings.
Before we start the questions,
let's take a look at the teams that have been crowned Premier League champions.
COMMENTATOR: Here's Shearer.
That's absolutely brilliant!
And he's onside, this could be even more of a fairy tale.
Tony Adams! Oh, what a finish!
In for Cole, scores!
Mario Balotelli, he has got it through, Sergio Aguero!
Sergio Aguero has done it!
..Lovren goes for it.
What a screamer!
Into the box, brilliant!
It is a blue day at Stamford Bridge.
Great scenes, there,
and all the questions tonight are about the Premier League.
We're kicking things off with a one-minute round.
Matt, your team are up first.
-Here we go.
Which current Stoke City player has scored the most headed goals...
Which stadium is this?
Is that... Sports Direct?
-Bob Bradley was the first man from which country to...
Which Sheffield United player scored the first ever Premier
Yes. Which two teams badges are mashed up here?
-No. These three
players all shared their surnames with words
that might follow "off".
-They are football players.
Take a look at the names.
Erm, Matt Le Tissier?
Shaw off. Off..load.
We will fill in those blanks.
Off guard. You got Watford, from the badges, the other one was Wigan.
-And the football stadium...
It was City Ground.
Notts County... Nearly.
So, five points scored.
Come on, fellas. Could go 1-0 up here, come on.
-Yeah, or not!
Ready? Here we go.
James Vaughan took which record from James Milner by scoring against
Crystal Palace in 2005?
-Youngest ever goal-scorer.
Which two teams badges are mashed up here?
-And The Swallows...
Go on, quickly.
Which Irishman has scored the most Premier League own goals?
Of the 49 clubs to have played in the Premier League,
which of them is last alphabetically?
Wigan, Watford, West Brom...
-Yeah. Which Premier League ground is this?
-Go on, boys.
Yes. These three Premier League players all share surnames with jobs.
Look at Spurs, jobs, right, Anthony...
-Well, jobs... Surgeon...
SPEECH DROWNED BY APPLAUSE
-Gardner! Anthony Gardner it was.
Marcus Painter was the other one we were looking for.
And it was Hull City and Cardiff City.
Those are the ones we were looking for.
Well, at the end of the opening round, Matt is on 5,
Phil in front on 6.
Got away with that.
It's Sports Action time now and we have got some great goals for you.
Oh, it's a deep cross towards Di Canio,
what a shot!
Yeboah here scored the second.
Look at that! Look at that!
..to Klinsmann. That's what they paid the money for,
that's what the fans have been streaming up the motorway for.
Chance for Collymore. He has won it!
Kevin Keegan can't believe it.
Two others up with him, Sturridge and Ward.
The Costa Rican quite happy to run at the Manchester defence.
But he has gone right through them, Wanchope, and he has scored!
What a fantastic goal.
Phillips! Brilliant! Brilliant!
Now, here's Bergkamp, he has turned Dabizas!
What a goal!
Dempsey has had a long hard look at this.
Here comes the American.
He cannot do anything wrong at the moment.
Breezes past a couple of defenders.
He's done it.
You could watch that again.
May not help.
Matt, we're coming to you first. Which of these has scored the most
Premier League goals in their career?
Tony Yeboah, Jurgen Klinsmann or Mario Balotelli.
OK. They weren't in the Premier League that long, were they?
Any of them. We will go between Klinsmann and Tony Yeboah.
I have seen more of his goals -
been shown - than I have his goals.
-Who are you going for?
You're going for Jurgen Klinsmann, are you?
-Let's have a look.
Who has the most Premier League goals? It is Jurgen Klinsmann! You get the point, yes!
As you get it right, you get a chance for a bonus point.
Which team was Jurgen Klinsmann scoring against?
-Is the right answer!
Phil, which of these three has scored the most goals?
Clint Dempsey, Gus Poyet or Paulo Wanchope.
Right, just off the top of my
head, I was going to think him.
He scored a lot of goals for Chels.
I'm going Clint Dempsey.
He kept them up.
Scored a lot for Fulham.
Scored basically every time for Fulham.
-Happy with that?
-Going with Dempsey...
Let's have a look.
I backed off, I backed off.
Always scored for them. All-time record Premier League goal-scorer.
For your bonus, which team was Clint Dempsey scoring against?
It wasn't Man U, was it?
I was thinking red...
I was thinking perhaps red...
I reckon it could have been Man U.
-Yeah. Go on.
No, it wasn't, it was Sunderland.
-Red, it was.
-No bonus there.
Matt, which of these three have scored the most Premier League
Kevin Phillips, Dennis Bergkamp, Chris Sutton.
Chris Sutton! Look at him!
Goodness... Who's got the most goals?
He won the Golden Boot.
-Same year as you. Did he?
-Same year as me.
Same year as you?
Did you win...? Just dropped that in!
Just drop that in that you won Golden Boot...
Don't tell everybody, don't tell everybody.
"Sorry, yeah, I don't know anything about anyone, but..."
"..he won the Golden Boot the same year as me."
Is it just a freak coincidence
you've got it with you in the dressing room?
-Who are you thinking of, Daws?
-We'll go with Chris Sutton, Sue.
-Wrong, wrong, wrong.
Oh? "Wrong, wrong, wrong," you're saying over here?
Well, no, no, not necessarily.
-I just thought it might have been Kevin Phillips, that's all.
It's a hard call, that.
I think we would have gone Kevin Phillips if it...
If it wasn't for the... SHE MOUTHS
-If it wasn't for Dion.
But, you know...
And is Dion right?
I think Kevin Phillips won the Golden Boot 2002...
He's a good player, a very good player.
Bad luck. No bonus question for you.
Phil, finally, for your team,
which of these has the most Premier League goals?
-Stan Collymore, Paolo Di Canio, or Eric Cantona?
Yeah, we don't fancy Di Canio, do we?
He's not scored as many goals as Eric Cantona, surely?
-Surely not, no?
-I'll just throw in there...
I just wondered, because of, you know...
Naturally, Dion playing at Manchester United,
whether he played with the great Eric Cantona,
and he said, "No, no, no, I think you'll find they bought Eric Cantona
"because I was injured."
Some would say that was a like-for-like replacement.
Oh, boys, what do we reckon?
-It's got to be Stan, ain't it?
-Got to be Stan, ain't it?
Got to be Stan. I think it has. Got to be.
Well, they're all nodding, which is a lie, I reckon.
-Got to be.
-Got to be.
-I've got a fancy for Cantona. I've got a fancy for Cantona.
-Have you got a split decision on your team?
-Yeah, we have.
-Right, Captain's decision.
-Go on. Of course.
I'm going to go with Eric Cantona, Sue.
-Oh, my goodness me.
-Ooh! Split decision!
Or was it Stan?
It was Cantona!
And, for your final chance at a bonus point,
Eric Cantona was scoring but who was passing to him?
-It was, yes!
I've made it up. I've made up for it, I've made up for it.
And, at the end of the round,
Matt is on 7, Phil's team in front on 9.
It's time for a Top Ten now.
-And, Phil, your team are up first - you have goalkeepers.
You have to name the ten goalkeepers
that have the most Premier League clean sheets,
-not including the current season.
There's a point for each correct answer
but, if you get one wrong, you'll lose all of your points.
-So, will you know when to stop?
Have you got a definite that you want to start with?
Yes, definite. Which one do we fancy definite?
Is he on the list?
That's our banker?!
Do you want to stop there, then? You got a point!
-David Seaman, Sue.
-He's number one.
Going with David Seaman. Let's have a look.
-He's there - that's fine. Another point scored.
Go for it. That was quick.
That's the one, Darren - right at the top.
-Who are we missing, then?
David James is definitely...
-Go on, mate, you said it.
David James is...
-..number two on the list.
Whoa, hold on a minute, hold on a minute!
Peter Schmeichel's ten!
-We going van der Sar? Van der Sar?
Edwin van der Sar.
You've got a worried captain there.
-You've gone with van der Sar.
APPLAUSE DROWNS SPEECH
You've got five points, you don't have to go on.
-Nigel Martyn, Sue.
So are you going on? Or are...?
-I think we stick.
We are going to stick, Sue.
OK. If you were going to go on?
-We would have gone, perhaps...
-Who would have been your first..?
-Perhaps Pepe Reina or Tim...
That's a great shout.
-Tim Flowers - if you'd have said Tim Flowers...
..you would've lost six points.
-Yeah. That's why we didn't say it.
Who was your shout? Who do you think number three is?
-Oh, Paul Robinson.
Oh, Paul Robinson, Blackburn.
-He is not on the list.
Let's have a look.
Number nine first.
Played for 700 games.
Daws, you were never there!
-Number six, you did mention.
And number three -
-We'll take six.
Six points scored. Very well done. Very well done.
OK, Matt, you have to name the ten teams
that have lost over 240 games in the Premier League.
Again, not including the current season.
OK, are we then focusing on the teams
that maybe have come up and gone back down?
But have lost a load of them?
-Yeah, but I think they're always up and down...
-True, good shout.
I like this. I think you're onto something there, and it's that area,
-Palace have lost a lot of games.
-Have they been in the league a lot?
-OK, we're going to start with West Ham.
-Starting with West Ham.
Are they on the list?
Yes, they are. Well done.
Is 240 number one or number ten?
West Ham are over 330.
-Yeah, this one.
You're going for Sunderland.
-What about Southampton?
Not when I was there.
Not when I was there.
-No loyalties here - it's a quiz.
-Not when I was there.
Aston Villa. Surely.
Been in it for every single year apart from this year. Got to be.
-Is Aston Villa on the list?
Another one. It's Everton. It's Everton.
Got to be.
Everton have lost as many games as Aston Villa.
They've been in there...
They've been in the Premier League the whole way through,
and they've been either mid-table, relegation battle,
recently they've been scrapping to get... Know what I mean?
Everton, it's got to be number one.
Would we do that to you?
-Yes, you would, yes, you would. That's exactly...
-Oh, God! No way!
-That's exactly what you would do.
Let's see if Everton is on the list.
-Now, big question...
-It is a big question, Sue.
-You've got five.
How confident are you to go on?
Or are you going to take you five and run?
I'm just thinking, there probably is one more.
Cov City, yes.
-Another one of your clubs.
-Didn't get the Golden Boot that year, did you?
-No, I didn't.
LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE
-We can't lose five points.
-No, you'd be out of the game.
Then, OK, we're going to freeze, but our next choice was Coventry City.
If you had gone Coventry City,
you would have lost five points.
So, let's have a look. Number ten, just over 240.
-Number nine, I don't think you mentioned these.
-Ah! Never, in a million years.
Number eight. Didn't mention this one.
Number five, you almost went for.
-Would've been the next one.
-And number four?
So, with the scores standing at Matt on 12, Phil in front on 15,
let's hand over to Conor, with the story of the match so far.
Well, AFC Dawson, Sue, had to absorb a lot of early pressure there,
but I think they rallied well towards the end of the first half.
Bent and Le Saux got on the scoresheet
very quickly for Tufnell Town,
Bent showing some real precision, I thought, in front of goal
with his Richard Dunne answer.
The skipper of Tufnell Town showed all of his leadership qualities -
he plumped for Dempsey and Cantona,
keeping his side with their noses in front.
But I think a real head-in-hands moment when Daws went with Dublin
and opted for Sutton over Phillips, again, goal at his mercy.
And I'm just going to bend down
to pick up the name drop of the Golden Boot.
-Tufnell nearly fell from grace
as he went with Schmeichel in the first up of the Top Ten
but his team, I think, steadies the ship,
is the fairest way to say it.
Alex Scott really started to come into her own
towards the end of the half, in the Top Ten -
couple of absolute screamers.
And, despite the captain's allegiances to Everton,
the team managed to secure five points.
OK, it is mystery guest time now.
And we've raided the archives for four Premier League stars that have
featured on the show.
OK, teams, keep your eyes peeled.
Daws, as you're trailing, you get to pick one of those first.
-You are correct.
Yes! Well done. The Spurs defender, well done.
-I don't know if they'll get the last one.
I'm not sure they'll get Shearer.
Nah, they'll get him.
It's definitely Shearer. Alan Shearer, Sue.
You're going for Alan Shearer
and you are right, yes!
The league's all-time record goal-scorer.
-Have you got them all?
-We're not 100% sure on that one, are we?
Your last guess.
OK. We'll go with Tim Cahill.
You're going with Tim Cahill?
-Happy with that? Ooh, didn't have it.
You are correct, yes!
It was Tim Cahill.
So, do you have the other one?
Yeah. You've got it, mate.
-Darren got it.
Yes, he's the fourth one, full house. Well done, well done.
Well done to both teams in that round.
Matt has moved onto 14, Phil still in front on 17.
Well, now we're heading to the final stage of the match,
it is the Sprint Finish and Matt is up first.
Come on! Come on!
-Here we go. Time starts now.
Oh, the bottom three teams are in the...
Oh! Not Newcastle, Sunderland but the other one?
Oh, every certain parts of the year, year divided into 12.
-The year divided into 12.
No! Divided by 12!
-Oh, sorry, months, months!
-And that is scored.
-The goal of the month!
Yes, yeah, yeah!
Oh, nickname for my team Everton.
Certain Man United manager would always have...
-Fergie, Fergie time.
Oh, I think Burnley play there.
I think, do they?
-No, move on.
-What do you, not the grass...
Oh, oh, very tall number four for Arsenal, scored...
-Oh, um... Er...
A very nice tower in the north-west of England on the beach,
-A place, it's a place.
Blackpool Tower, Blackpool Tower!
Ooh! Er... Der-der-der, de-de-der-der-der,
-At the end of Grandstand...
What was that?! What was that?
Well done, skipper.
Am I getting a bit too old?
You were like, "What are you talking about right now?"
-You don't know what vidiprinter is?
No idea what that is.
I think if you got "At the end of Grandstand" earlier that might be...
-It did do that, didn't it?
-I got it straightaway.
-I thought it was a fax machine at first.
I was with you.
Nickname for Everton, how could you do that?
Sorry, sorry, sorry. Sorry, sorry. I apologise.
Anyway, you scored a magnificent eight points.
-OK, Tuffers, up you come.
-Let's go, come on.
Let's have it.
-Here we go.
Oh, um... Oh, who...
Oh, oh, Mourinho!
-No, it was his nickname!
-Yes, yes, yes, yes.
-Oh, they just got promoted. Blue and white stripes.
-The other one.
Yes, yes, yes.
Oh, every Saturday night you watch...
-Match Of The Day!
Centre half for Liverpool.
Famous, played all the time!
-All right, mate, all right.
-Carragher, Jamie Carragher.
-Oh, what are...
-Not five, what's after that?
-Yes. And it's a dog.
-It's a dog.
Could have been Dion.
-Fulham play there!
-What am I?
What am I?
I don't know. I put my foot in a... Arrrgh!
How did you get Swansea from that?!
Do you know what? The scary thing is I think I'm on his wavelength.
We're worried for you.
Six pointer, I mean...
And it's a dog.
-Did you actually point, as well, or not?
I don't know!
Oh, well, counting up the scores,
you only missed out on one,
you scored nine and you win the match!
CHEERING AND APPLAUSE
What a great match that was -
competitive throughout, just like the Premier League.
And if you want to see Conor's post-match interviews
you can by going online.
I have a feeling the Golden Boot might get another mention.
But thank you so much to all of our guests for joining us
and thank you for joining us at home.
We'll see you again soon, bye-bye!
