    Nah, it's a Unibet thing where they're giving 500 quid to first place and a bunch of Euro 2016 tickets to others so they've got to get something out of it and they want that juicy, juicy user data.

    I'll do one.

    A Tottenham player was the last player to do this, in 2000. It has only happened 8 times in history, and 6 of these occasions came in the 1990s. Only one player has done it twice, and only one African has done it. It won't be happening in 2016.

    What is it?

    Nope. Bump. One of you bored fucks should get this. It's actually a great question, if I say so myself.

    If you want a clue, the only African to do it was from Morocco.

    It doesn't specify the Moroccan is the Tottenham player I don't think.

    They don't have to have played for Tottenham, it's just that a Tottenham player was the last to do whatever it was.

    Pardon me.

    No idea about this one. Im thinking it may have something to do with the euros coming up, but africans are not even qualified.

    Tahar El-Khalej was about in the 90s. He did something remarkable didn't he?

    Hmm maybe not.

    Since none of you are anywhere near I'll confirm the Moroccan is Chippo.

    I genuinely thought that Chippo was a slightly racist name that Wullie had invented, the scamp that he is.

    No.

    Next clue: Of the seven people to have done it, Youssef Chippo is by far the most unlikely person to have done it.

    A tad warmer. Not overly so.

    Six of the seven would have grown up dreaming about achieving this feat. Not Chippo.

    I would have said signing for Coventry, but Chippo definitely grew up watching the donkey kick and the brown kit.

    This is going to take a while, isn't it.

    Since the match when this was last achieved, in 2000, there have only been two further matches when it could have been achieved, but wasn't. The earliest it could theoretically next happen is 2018.

    I'm looking through the Tottenham squad trying to think. It's a very unremarkable group of players.

    No.

    Two of the seven people to have achieved this are cousins.

    He is not.

    I'll spell out the seven:

    Youssef Chippo
    Cousin 1
    Cousin 2
    Someone who did it twice
    Someone who played for Spurs when they achieved it in 2000
    Person 6
    Person 7

    Person 7 you will not have heard of, but it doesn't really matter in the context of the question.

    Chippo scored an own goal against Norway in France '98, and that's pretty much how far I got as I can't seem to link that to a Spurs player from the year of our lord 2000.

    edit: Too slow and shit with my googling

    I was looking at Steffen Iversen and Euro 2000 but never thought Norway was the specific link. Arse.

    Friday afternoon edition.

    There is a link shared by this set of clubs. Can you name the link, and the four missing clubs?

    (ENG)
    (ESP)
    (ESP)
    (FRA) Marseille
    (FRA) Monaco
    (FRA) Nantes
    (ITA)

    There is also a debatable 'bonus' answer but I won't reveal the country of that club.

    Last winners of some old cups like the Anglo-Italian one.

    edit: Or the first winners of new competitions as Marseille were the ones to win the new Champions league.

    No, but the latter competition is relevant.
