  6. Probably 20+ years ago the farther in law must have asked me this question that was in his Daily Mirror (must have been him as I haven't read through a newspaper for more years than I can remember) and I tore out the question to take to the pub with me on a Friday night when me and my mates discussed football and how to put the world to right. So this scrap of newspaper has been in my wallet for years and I had forgot about it.
  7. Yep -your OH is correct👍 I t must be over twenty years ago when I first saw the question in a newspaper, so long before Callum Hudson-Odoy, when it was name the 4. Now it's name the five and so far we have :- Peter Osgood 4 caps, 0 goals (1970 - 73) Ian Storey-Moore 1 cap, 0 goals (1970) Tony Woodcock 42 caps, 16 goals (1978 - 86) Callum Hudson-odoi 3 caps, 0 goals (2019) and the 5th is :- Lieut Colonel xxxxxx x xxx-xxxxx last match, a friendly in 1875🧐
  8. Nope - the surname doesn't have to start with 'O' - they just have to have 3 O's in their surname like Osgood. I'll let you stew on it - closing down the PC for tonight
  9. Ok - to quell the protest you can have a starter for dix :- Peter Osgood - 4 caps, 0 goals (1970–73) @Ovalteeny might be able to help
