Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. 1970: Feyenoord

Answer: Ernst Happel

Feyenoord became the first Dutch team to win the European Cup, defeating 1967 champions Celtic 2-1 after extra time. In the Feyenoord team for this match was Wim Jansen, who would go on to manage Celtic during 1997-98 season, winning the League Cup and League Championship, Celtic's first league title in 10 years. He left the club two days later after clashing with Celtic's general manager, Jock Brown.

Austrian Ernst Happel won the European Cup again in 1983 with Hamburg. He was also led Netherlands to the final of the 1978 World Cup where they lost 3-1 to host nation Argentina.
2. 1971: Ajax

Answer: Rinus Michels

Ajax won their first European Cup by defeating Panathinaikos 2-0. Panathinaikos were led that day by Ferenc Puskas, himself a three time European Cup winner as a player with Real Madrid. Michels left Ajax following this win to join Barcelona. In 1973 he would sign Johan Cruyff from Ajax and in 1974 Barcelona won the league for the first time in 14 years. Michels would go on to lead Netherlands to victory in the 1988 UEFA European Championship and to second place in the 1974 FIFA World Cup.
3. 1972: Ajax

Answer: Stefan Kovacs

Ajax's Total Football philosophy was in full swing by 1972 and a dominant display in the European Cup final saw them defeat Inter Milan 2-0 to claim their second consecutive title, both goals coming from Johan Cruyff. During his two year spell at Ajax from 1971-73, the club won the Dutch league championship twice, the European Cup twice, the KNVB Cup (Dutch equivalent of the FA Cup) in 1972 and the European Super Cup and Intercontinental Cup, both in 1972.
4. 1973: Ajax

Answer: Stefan Kovacs

A fifth minute goal from Johnny Rep was enough to give Ajax their second consecutive win against Italian opposition, Juventus, and their third consecutive win in the European Cup, meaning they earned the right to keep the trophy permanently. It would be another 22 years before Ajax would win another European Cup, against another Italian side in AC Milan. Juventus would claim their revenge in 1996 when they defeated Ajax on penalties to claim their second European Cup.

After leaving Ajax in 1973, Kovacs would go on to manage the French and Romanian national teams and also had spells at Panathinaikos as Monaco, with his only major trophy during this time being the 1982 Greek Cup. He died in 1995, 12 days before Ajax won their fourth European Cup against AC Milan.
5. 1974: Bayern Munich

Answer: Udo Lattek

Bayern became the first German team to win the European Cup following a 4-0 win against Atletico Madrid. In the days before penalty shootouts were common place, this was the only final in the competition to go to a replay after the original final ended 1-1 after extra time.

Despite winning the European Cup with Bayern, as well as three consecutive German league championships from 1972-73-74, Lattek was fired during the 1974-75 season due to poor domestic form. He would later go on to win the German championship in 1976 and 1977 with Borussia Monchengladbach as well as the 1979 UEFA Cup. He followed this up with the 1982 European Cup Winners Cup, won with Barcelona. He would return to Munich in 1983, winning the German championship three times in four years, along with two German cup wins.
6. 1975: Bayern Munich

Answer: Dettmar Cramer

Bayern won their second successive title with a 2-0 win over Leeds United. With the score still 0-0, Peter Lorimer thought he had opened the scoring for Leeds in the 62nd minute. The referee appeared to indicate that the goal had been given and the linesman had already run back to he halfway line without raising his flag, but Franz Beckenbauer convinced the referee to speak with his assistant and Billy Bremner was judged to have been offside. Consequently, a riot broke out among the Leeds fans, which would continue after the match.

As a result, Leeds were banned from European competition for four years, reduced to two years on appeal. Hhowever, due to poor domestic form they would not qualify for European competition until the 1979-80 season anyway.
7. 1976: Bayern Munich

Answer: Dettmar Cramer

A solitary goal from Franz Roth, who had opened the scoring for Bayern in the 1975 final, saw Bayern defeat Saint Etienne to claim their third consecutive European Cup and the second under the leadership of Dettmar Cramer. Poor domestic form the following season saw Cramer traded with Eintrach Frankfurt managr Gyula Lorant. Poor form with Frankfurt saw Cramer leave in 1978.

His later career saw him manage teams such as Al-Ittihad, Aris Salonika and Bayer Leverkusen. He would never again achieve the same success he had with Munich.
8. 1977: Liverpool

Answer: Bob Paisley

A 3-1 win against Udo Lattek-led Borussia Monchengladbach earned Liverpool their first European Cup title and only the second for a club from England, following Manchester United's win in 1968. The 1977 final was the first of 6 consecutive finals won by English teams.

This was also the only one of those English winning teams not to feature any players from Scotland. Having previously won the UEFA Cup in 1976 with Liverpool, Bob Paisley became the first manager to win the UEFA Cup and European Cup in successive seasons.
9. 1978: Liverpool

Answer: Bob Paisley

A repeat of the 1976 UEFA Cup final, which was won 3-2 by Liverpool, was another tight game which saw Liverpool beat Club Brugge, with Kenny Dalglish scoring the only goal of the game. Dalglish had been signed from Celtic in 1977 following the departure of Kevin Keegan, and would go on to score 118 goals in 355 appearances for the club over the next 13 years, during which time they won 8 league championships, two FA Cups, four League Cups and three European Cups.

Three of these league championship wins were secured with Dalglish as player-manager, a role he took on in 1985 following the Heysel disaster. He left the club in 1991 having never fully recovered from managing the team during the Hillsborough disaster in 1989. He would later go on to win the English league championship with Blackburn Rovers in 1995 before spells at Newcastle United, Celtic and again with Liverpool from 2011-12.
10. 1979: Nottingham Forest

Answer: Brian Clough

The third of six consecutive European Cup wins for English sides saw Nottingham Forest defeat Malmo 1-0, the only goal coming from Trevor Francis. Clough also led Forest to triumph in the English League Cup that year, as well as the UEFA Super Cup. Forest managed to retain the European Cup in 1980 to become the first team to win the European Cup more times than their own domestic league championship, which they won in 1978.

In the days when the holders were permitted to defend their title and only domestic league winners were eligible to compete in the European Cup, Forest qualified for the 1979-80 and 1980-81 tournaments as holders. By the time of the 1980-81 season, it had been three seasons since Forest had won the league championship, a feat only equalled by Bayern Munich (1976-77) and Real Madrid (1960-61).
