    Football Trivia questions

    Does anyone follow @FootballTeasers on Twitter?

    They post some good questions that get the grey matter working. I'm pretty useless with remembering stats and dates etc, but thought it'd be cool to share out the questions with you guys.

    Today's is:

    Ten Englishmen have played in the Premier League and La Liga. Name them.


    After 5 mins I've got 6:

    Steve McManaman
    David Beckham
    Michael Owen
    Jonathan Woodgate (Langers)
    Jermain Pennant (Langers)
    Stan Collymore (Langers)
    Dalian Atkinson (Langers)
    Gary Lineaker (Sniffer Grouse)
    Kevin Richardson (Langers)

    No cheating, no google or wiki - GO!

    Socks before or after trousers, but never before pants. That's the rule.

    Thought of 2 more - Collymore and Pennant (when he famously left his car and forgot about it!)

    Michael Robinson was born in England but represented the Republic of Ireland at international level, so I doubt he will count either

    How about ex-Villa tache man Kevin Richardson? Is he English or Welsh? Definitely played in the Prem for Villa and I'm sure he played abroad.

    samways is one
