I got 10.

I didn't count but must have been similar. It's a hard one to revise for with so much history but they threw a few easier ones in for the 'common' fan.
I'm sure I saw DYL post on here not too long ago, so maybe he can remind us of his experience.

Fcuking hell youíre bleating like a stuffed koala, you and your like have been bullying Beds for years.
Howís the weather in Melbourne 😂😂😂😂

Donít really want to drag this out but can I just make one point. Many years ago when I joined this forum there were some fairly vociferous opinions being banded around regarding the owners. I somewhat unusually put up some innocuous comments in defence and Dave and Derek rounded on me like a pair of chattering hyenas. So as far as I am concerned that made them fair game, and if anyone doesnít like it tough. If you canít take it, donít give it out. You wonít ever see me complaining.

It was a long time ago. 15 years I reckon. So I'm not surprised people don't recognise me from the video.

I originally wanted to do 1960-2000 but they told me they wanted me to do the entire history of the club. So that's what I did. I went through every book I could find pulling out facts that could plausibly be asked about and turning them into questions to practice. Frank Grande was a great help in providing context and clarifications. By the time I went on I had pushing 1000 questions written. Haven't watched it back for a while but from memory I missed a cup shock, which was simply down to the pressure of trying to recall it at speed, and a player of no significance who hadn't crossed my radar

After all that prep it felt like an easy ride. But the reason you do all of that prep is to be able to answer at speed when you need to. I lost in the semis that year. A few years later I got to the semis again and did Herbert Chapman as my subject. Alas I lost on a tiebreak. I had one more stab at it, and again lost in the semis. A couple of years later after success on 15 to 1 I got asked to write for 15 to 1, and when the questions team moved to Mastermind I went with them. So now that I write for the show I won't be able to go on it again.

But it is a scary and exhilarating experience to go on Mastermind. I'd recommend it to anyone.

As a postscript, when I was prepping The Cobblers, unbeknowns to me the question writer was struggling to get his hands on the centenary history. I'm known in quiz circles for being a Cobblers fan, so even though he didn't know me I got a private message on a message board asking if I had a copy he could borrow. I didn't reply and told the show's producer immediately and that was that. Many months later when the show was due to be broadcast the Mail on Sunday ran a full page article headed "mastermind contestant asked to write his own questions" which of course was not what happened. They made no attempt to contact me before publication. In the course of pursuing a complaint against them they initially claimed that they couldn't find a way of contacting me. When I told them I was in the phone book (that's how long ago it was) the Managing Editor had to admit fault. He also admitted that I was collateral damage in an attack on the BBC. That's who they were really after. The story was repeated by the Independent and Telegraph almost word for word, and thereafter went worldwide. The only place it was taken down was on the Mail's website after my complaint. It was a real eye opener.


I saw mention elsewhere of Deal or No Deal. I haven't done that. I stick to quizzes. I think that was Glen Cousner.

Nice story Gareth.
Yeah it was Glen Cousner who went onto a career in towel manufacturing, although he almost lost his pension.

Great story Dyl. But I have to take exception to the above comment. Have you read most of the comments on here? You'd struggle to piece together a salient answer from hardly any of us.  Grin

There is someone on here who knows all the FACTS. They would be great on it. They could even tell Magnus Magnusson if he was wrong.

Manny has many contacts in this world. But unless he has a medium in his little black book, that could prove tricky.
