quiz takes pen-pictures from the programmes of five matches played over
the years in the Premier League. Each pen-picture is of a player from the visiting
side. Who are the players being described?
United v Manchester United Saturday 15th August 1992
??? has played more than 500 league matches since making his debut for
Gillingham in 1979. Norwich signed him for £135,000 in 1984 but United
went up to £825,000 to secure his signature in 1987. After winning
England youth honours in his early days, ??? later played for England
'B' and for the Football League XI.
Arsenal v Blackburn Rovers Saturday 2nd April 2011
A former Blackburn favourite, ??? returned to Ewood Park on a
half-season loan in January having fallen out of favour at Man City -
the club that bought him from Rovers for £17.5m two summers ago. A
veteran of three World Cups with Paraguay, he would probably have
already passed 100 caps for his country had it not been for the scourge
of injuries that have decimated is career - not least during the
eight-year spell he had at Bayern Munich.
City v Manchester City Saturday 24th April 2004
Experienced midfielder ??? joined City in the summer for £2.5m from
relegated Sunderland where he spent two seasons. The 30 year old New
Jersey-born player has been capped 93 times for the USA, scoring eight
v Queens Park Rangers Saturday 25th August 1993
???, signed from non-League Hayes in 1987, had few peers to match his
aerial power and strength on the ground. He was by some way Rangers' top
scorer with 24 goals (in 1992/93), including two hat-tricks, and,
not surprisingly, he also scooped the club's 'Player of the Year' award.
Graham Taylor, the England manager, could not ignore such form and ???
marked his senior international debut with a goal in the 6-0 World Cup win
over San Marino in February. He finished the season with four
v Liverpool Tuesday 6th May 1997
Liverpool bought the England star from Watford in June 1987 and he became
an instant hit with the Anfield faithful, his goalscoring and his ability
on the wing bringing him both FA Cup and Championship medals. Voted Player
of the Year by his fellow professionals and named Footballer of the
Year by the country's top football writers in 1987-88 and
Footballer of the Year again in 1989/90. Jamaican born, ??? endured two frustrating seasons with
injuries before assuming a new role in central midfield.
