Your Football Knowledge Could Land You A Free Bet

by Aidan Elder | February 15, 2012

Hello and welcome to your weekly dose of blog competition head-scratching via the medium of the ever-unpopular Whose Career Is It Anyway? – for one week only possibly better known as ‘Whose Success In Domestic Cup Competitions Is It Anyway?

It’s an FA Cup weekend so in a topical tweak to how this things normally work, the criteria have changed slightly. Rather than representing every club this person has played for, the flags represent every city in which he or she has won a domestic cup. Who am I kidding – it’s a he. This player has three domestic cup competitions to his name during the course of his senior career and I want you to tell me who I’m referring to.

The important thing to know is the flags don’t represent the clubs he was at when he won the cups, simply the venues where the finals were played. It’s tricky, but you’re smart so you’ll figure it out. It’s not as google-able as some of our previous, but that just means fewer correct answers and with a little more thinking, you should have a better chance of winning. Yaaaaay! Here’s the hastily assembled map:

Win A Free Bet

Send your answer to with the subject line ‘Long Live The Romance Of The Cup’. Or don’t bother, it doesn’t make any difference. You’re allowed to have more than one guess, just don’t take the piss with large-scale copying and pasting of answers. Also, don’t use the comments section for submitting your answers as they won’t count and might very well end up in me getting my knickers in a twist. And I prefer my undergarments to be twist-free where possible.

The prize begins life as a Free £/€50 Bet, but to shamelessly steal Chris Tarrant’s probably copyrighted phrase, we don’t want to give you that. We’ll increase the prize by one euro or one pound every time this tweet gets retweeted or you put this competition on your Facebook wall. Other social networks will also count if in fact – contrary to public perception – anyone is on Google+. If we get more than one correct answer – and I wouldn’t be too sure of that this week *strokes chin like a low-budget Bond villain* – the winner will be drawn at random from my hat of quiz-ending jeopardy.

Get your answer in before 10am on Tuesday 21st February – God this month is flying by. I’ll draw the winner soon after when I’m finished my daily cider-stalking. I’ll be available via the comments section or on twitter where I’m @PaddyPowerAidan to discuss any questions you may have about the competition.

Good luck one and all. May the smartest and jammiest person win.

– Customers must be over the age of 18, have a valid account.
– Maximum size of the free bet will be €/£150.
– Paddy Power decision is final and moaning will be ridiculed.
