The JOE Friday Pub Quiz: Week 96

Cheer up. Have a quiz

Rich Cooper

The dream is over, but a new one is just beginning.

England did us proud this week. No shame in going out in a semi-final. The boys can come home with their heads held high, safe in the knowledge that, while they didn’t win, they restored our faith in the English game. They are winners in our hearts.

Now as for you, Pub Quizzer, you will receive no such leniency. We want to see high scores. Don’t think you can slink off home with a meagre 13/25 and call yourself a hero. You’re not Gareth Southgate, take off the waistcoat. Waistcoats are for winners.

This week’s quiz comes courtesy of my esteemed colleague Kyle Picknell, who generously stepped in for me while I moved house. Yes, it is nice, thank you for asking.

In honour of our Brave Boys in White, Round One is England, but it’s about the country, not the team. Round Two is Sport, followed by The Solar System. The Picture Round this week is Cartoons, and finally it’s General Knowledge.

Thanks to Kyle, thanks to Gareth Southgate, thanks to Harry Maguire’s head. Thanks to you all.
