Whose Career Is It Anyway? is back!
No, not by popular demand – not by any demand in fact – but it’s back nonetheless.
‘It’s been a while’ is pretty much the flimsy justification for giving it it’s first run-out of the new year even if the sight of it springing from the bench garners the same enthusiastic welcome as Andrey Arshavin coming on for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain got from Robin van Persie.
What I’m asking of you is the same as always, but for newcomers, novices or people who have irreparably damaged their hippocampus I’ll go over the task at hand. Each of the flags planted in the map below corresponds to a club this man or woman has played for in the course of his or her senior professional career, you need to tell me who the person is. And by the way, the flags represent all the clubs – not just a little snapshot of the career in question. So, before you hit the online encyclopaedias and search engines of the world, here’s the map:
Because the information I’m after is sensitive, you need to email your answer to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line ‘Football Nerds Get All The Girls’. If you are a girl, I’ll permit you to change it to ‘boys’ and changes related to your own personal sexual orientation will also be tolerated. Or else don’t bother, it doesn’t make any difference. DO NOT PUT YOUR ANSWER IN THE COMMENTS SECTION BELOW – it won’t count for the competition and it might give a rival a clue. Feel free to use it for deceit and other stuff, but no answers please. You’re allowed more than one guess, but anyone who adopts a carpet bombing strategy of naming pretty much every footballer ever will be ignored.
The prize starts off as a Free £/€50 Bet, but I’m hoping it will get substantially inflated. For every retweet of this tweet or share on Facebook, google+ or LinkedIn, I’ll add one euro/pound to the prize. Last week’s competition got a huge boost from being pimped around the internet and you should try and maintain those standards this week, because you could well be the person winning the prize. If we get more than one correct answer – as often/always happens – the winner will be drawn at random from my quiz-concluding hat of mystery.
Get your answers in before 10am on Tuesday January 31st and I’ll pick a winner soon after I finish my daily cyberstalking. If you’ve any questions or ponderings, use the comments section or give me a holler on twitter where I’m called @PaddyPowerAidan. Best of luck.
