Nobes' Trivia Question One - solution

Two weeks ago, Nobes set his first trivia question:

Aston Villa, Chelsea, Ipswich Town, and Swansea City are part of a five club group. What links these clubs and which other Football League club completes the quintet?

Did you get the answer?

Well, the answer actually changed in the two weeks since the question was set! If you said Colchester United, then you would have been right, although the answer now is Norwich City.

That's because the U's were managed by Paul Lambert, who has now moved to Carrow Road.

Like Aston Villa manager Martin O'Neill, Chelsea supremo Carlo Ancelotti, the Ipswich boss Roy Keane, and new Swansea gaffer Paulo Sousa, Lambert won the European Cup as a player.

He collected his medal with Borussia Dortmund, O'Neill won it as part of Brian Clough's Nottingham Forest side, Ancelotti was twice victorious as a player with AC Milan,
Keane at Manchester United, and Sousa with both Juventus and Dortmund.

Congratulations if you got the right answer, and Nobes will be testing you with another trivia question very soon.
