Nobes' Trivia 3: solutions

At the start of last month, Soccer AM/MW's Nobes tasked you with finding the solutions to three trivia posers. How did you do? Here are the questions with the answers.

Question 1 - Cryptic Conundrum

Currently, seven Championship managers have achieved this, four League One bosses, and ten managers in League Two. What?

Solution: The answer is having won promotion from the division they're currently managing in.

In the Championship they are: Dave Jones, Aidy Boothroyd, George Burley, Roy Keane, Tony Mowbray, Billy Davies, and Neil Warnock.

League One managers who've already won promotion from the third tier before include: Phil Parkinson, John Ward, Gary Johnson, and Nigel Adkins.

The ten League One bosses are: Mark Stimson, Peter Taylor, Dario Gradi, Steve Tilson, Sammy McIlroy, Micky Adams, Ronnie Moore, Graham Turner, Paul Sturrock, and Paul Simpson.

Question 2 - Where's Nobes?

Which Football League ground is Nobes at?

This ground is used for both football and rugby league.

England's football and cricket teams have both played matches here, too, as well as an FA Cup final replay.

It's located on a road named after a local manufacturing family.

Solution: Nobes was at Bramall Lane, home of Sheffield United.

Question 3 - Odd One Out

Which of these clubs is the odd one out and why?

Doncaster Rovers, Norwich City, Swindon Town, Wycombe Wanderers, Yeovil Town.

Solution: Swindon are the odd one out because they don't play in a unique kit combination for the Football League.

Doncaster's red and white hoops, Yeovil's green and white hoops, Norwich's yellow and green ensemble, and Wycombe's sky and dark blue quarters are all unique.

Swindon's red shirts and white shorts kit is repeated by the likes of Nottingham Forest, Crewe, and Rotherham.

There's no trivia this month, although you will be able to play along with the Christmas Trivia Quiz between Lakes and Turls.

Nobes will have more trivia in the New Year.
