Quiz 27 - Who Are They? - Answers

So how do you think you did..... 

I would guess that most of you would get more of the 
first three right and more of the second three wrong so
3 would seem the fair pass mark.

I think without access to Google getting all 6 right would
be a great achievement.

Grounds he worked on included Goodison, Highbury, Hillsborough, Ibrox, Roker Park, Stamford Bridge and White Hart Lane although much of his architecture is sadly no more.
