Correct, v Sunderland in 1968.

Not in a Top League game.

Jimmy Greaves got at least one five in his career, but they may have been too early

Greaves scored 4 twice, in 1963 and 1968 but never 5.

So when I set the Q for just the PL the correct answers were given as Shearer, Defoe, Berbatov, Cole and Aguero.

5 from 1966 to 1983 to get.

But I'd be amazed if any of those are correct!


Any of these, Rother?

Yes indeed. Rush did it in 1983, when they beat Luton 6-0 - but Shearer was in the PL list.

4 left.

Derby would be Roger Davies
Ipswich Alan Brazil
Pre=prem Arsenal did not have many wild and woolly goalscorers. Stapleton? Woodcock? MacDonald? That Irish Giraffe whose name escapes me?
And I'm betting that the Chelsea guy is from the Sixties, because otherwise why choose it as a cut-off date, so Osgood, Gray, Cook, Hateley?

Chelsea is Bobby Tambling I reckon. I had a very keen interest in the Chelsea team of the late 60's and 70's... I don't remember any five gial scorers... I guess Kerry Dixon may have later. But I'd guess Tambling.

Okay... what was extremely unusual about the 'assist' for Aguerro's goal that won the title against QPR?

Was it that it was the only assist Balotelli made?

Or that he was on the floor when he passed it?
