Synopsis :

Besides the 2000 premiership questions there's also a special 1250 question Tottenham Quiz Book available:

"Spurs fans beware! And be prepared to challenge your knowledge (and possibly be demoralised at your lack of it!) about your favourite team. The 1,250 questions in this quiz book cover every aspect of Spurs’ long history, including players, managers, opponents, scores, transfers, nationalities, seasons, League positions, Cup competitions, and much more. And don’t pat yourself on the back too soon, as there’s an ‘Experts’ section at the end, designed to defy the most ardent aficionado’s powers of recollection. With a fitting foreword by two Spurs legends – Gary Mabbutt and Pat Jennings – this tribute to Spurs will trigger memories of all the nail-biting events and great personalities that have moulded the club for over a century, and it is as much a reference book of amazing and wide-ranging facts and figures as it is an entertaining quiz book."

And if you still haven't got enough :

The Official Ipswich Town Quiz Book, by John DT White

The West Ham Quiz Book, by Chris Cowlin

The Official Southampton Quiz Book, by Adam Pearson

The Unoffical Chelsea Quiz Book, by John DT White


Our verdict :

This books promises questions and it delivers : 2.000 questions covering the first 12 years of the Premiership since 1992.

Some are easy, but most are not. Some examples: From which club did Chelsea buy Arjen Robben? Who was the manager of Birmingham City in 1993?

The questions come in series of 10 with titles as 'Managers of Norwich City', 'History of Tottenham Hotspur', 'Ruud van Nistelrooij' etc.

Can you answer all 10 questions about Ruud van Nistelrooij?

Only mistake in the book I could find was that it states that Van Nistelrooij played for a club in Spain. Well, he didn't ...

Anyway, I'll forgive Mr White as the other 1999 questions seem to be outstanding :-). A nice gift for any premiership addict.
