    Between him & Hodge we all have a good few quid riding on these nanas, lets hope they played a big game in these childhoods lads.

    Can you name the other 199 Republic of Ireland players with Premier League appearances?

    Is it a lot of work to make surnames eligible answers? Spent forever trying different variations of the spelling of Stephen (to give one example)

    Sorry, I thought I selected that when I created the quiz. Surnames should work now

    Good quiz but I think the time allowed should be pushed out to 30 minutes. 200 names in 20 minutes is 10 names a minute which is nearly impossible to type, even before allowing for thinking time!

    Maximum time on sporcle is 25 minutes, so I've changed it to that

    So far there's been 106 attempts, and the highest correct answers is 156
    Two players have not been guessed by anyone who's taken the quiz
    Two players have been guessed by 95% of the people who've taken the quiz

    Struggled to 117 and left out a lot of very obvious ones, including a number of current internationals.

    The high score on the quiz is now 180, which is an amazing score
    All answers have now been guessed at least once
    The average score is 105

    Had a second go at it, did much better with the 25 minute time limit, enough time to think about it rather than just firing in as many surnames as I could think of.

    Still managed to somehow miss out Kevin Moran and Paul McGrath though!!

    It’s a great distraction. Loved it. I managed to remember Alan Maybury but forget Ian Harte!

    122 here. That's frustrating, but every couple of minutes you hit a bunch and it pushes your score up and motivates you to keep going.

    SPOILER: Hunt, Doyle, Walters, Obafemi, Lawrence and Carr the main ones I missed. None of them glaringly embarrassing I think! Plenty there I'd never even heard of alright.

    16 people got less than ten.

    I got 144. Missed a few obvious ones, but there are quite a few I'd never have guessed.

    Great quiz. I didn't do too well, 88 I think. But did anyone else get the former Longford Town player?

    First goal for Everton's senior team this morning against Western Sydney Wanderers

    (Not sure if this counts as his first competitive goal, they're playing in a tournament that's the equivalent of a preseason friendly)

    In some ways it's amazing how often that happens to goalkeepers ~ ~ Surely there must be some way of avoiding this common enough mistake by goalkeepers i.e. Close the open door.
