fantastic game - i got 189 right. Ones i couldnt get were players from recent seasons that didnt stick around too long plus one or two forgotten players from the Gregory era.

I enjoyed that.  Only got 149 though - even missed one player from 6 weeks ago.  My memory's obviously not what it used to be!

I remember results and players from twenty years ago far more easily than those of the last 10! Strange.

Cracking game thanks, only got 122 with my excuse being that my boss interrupted me halfway through!
Also forgot Custard Pants who was my favourite player during DOL's years.

95/96 and 10/11 my best seasons

I got 170. Did the first 120 in 3 minutes, then struggled. To be fair, not too gutted on who I missed out.


I got complete teams for the following seasons: 96, 99, 09, 11.


I missed one out for each of these teams: 94, 95, 97, 00, 01, 08.


I missed two for each of these: 98, 02, 03, 05, 10.


I missed three on 04


I missed four on 07


I missed five on 06


Good luck!

I got 157. Then I had another go, and managed only 149.

He was a winger/attacking midfielder who ended up at full back because Gary Charles was injured and Nelson wasnt ready for his debut yet. I dont think he was an orthodox defender. He was sold to Bristol City i think.
