Correct. That was an easy one :lol: well done.

Nordin Wooter. Once had the world at his feet, but then ended up at Watford.

Afraid I'm out of ideas on this one. Been trying to think of all the lower league players that have been around for centuries, but not found anyone that fits that history!

I instantly thought Benjamin so looked for Leicester :lol:

Annoyingly, judging by when he(?) played for Wrexham, I probably saw him play more than once... but don't think I've got a chance here.

Is he a travelling salesman or something?! :lol:

25+ year career so even if he started at 15, he's 40 by now, at least. Not a clue who it is though!

Wouldn’t fancy being his agent (unless he’s bagging signing-on fees everywhere).

I found him. Obviously never heard of him. Impossible to guess. If you’ve transferred him before in CM with an update it’s an easy one though lol

I know Byron Bubb and his cousin/brother Bradley played for years and years. I'm going to go for Bradley Bubb.

I have seen both the Bubbs in my time. Byron with Burnham and Bradley with Farnborough (where he played alongside Kezie Ibe, another player with 20+ clubs to his name). But the player in question is neither of the above.

For something this niche I wouldn't have any issues with a little bit of Googling, to be fair.

To underline why he is a legend in my eyes, see the excerpt from Wiki below:
The following season he attracted much media attention when, having scored the winner in Oxford United's televised FA Cup Second Round clash with Swindon Town,[8] he was captured naked live on television joyously celebrating the U's draw with the club, Arsenal, he supported as a boy.
We all know that the A420 derby is the biggest fixture in English football, so our man is secured in Oxford folklore.

He is at Oxford in the 3.9.68 database, I think as a AM/FL His cousin, mentioned above, is Richard Pacquette, formerly of QPR. Pacquette has 37 transfers to his name including loans, compared to our man's 45 transfers.

Byron Bubb was my favourite rookie in 3.9.65 , cheap AMC for lower leagues.
I googled for the answer, I did not notice him in the game.

Four points of the compass.

Which were the most northern, eastern, southern and western grounds in the football league in its first season 1888/89?

North - BURNLEY

Sunderland (Northern) - or are we including Scottish teams here? (no idea of league structure then :lol:)
