Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Founded: 1892 Nickname: The Reds Home ground: Anfield

Answer: Liverpool

Football was and is a passion in Liverpool. The city on the Mersey has two great footballing rivals, Liverpool and Everton. Liverpool FC won their 19th league title in 2019-20 (some 30 years after their previous triumph). Their first title was almost 120 years earlier in 1901. Liverpool also won the FA Cup on seven occasions during those 120 years.
2. Founded: 1872 Nickname: The Red Devils Home ground: Old Trafford

Answer: Manchester United

Manchester is one of many cities divided on colour lines - red for Manchester United and blue for Manchester City. Manchester United won the FA Cup for the 12th time in 2016 (their first was some 107 years earlier in 1909). They won the English league title 20 times during those 107 years. During its long life, the club has become one of the best-supported worldwide.

It attracts legions of fervent supporters, but its success also brought dislike and envy. Indeed, there are football supporters, like this quiz author, who believe that the most beautiful three-word phrase in the English language is "Manchester United nil ..."
3. Founded: 1886 Nickname: The Gunners Home ground: Emirates Stadium

Answer: Arsenal

The north London club of Arsenal were founded as Woolwich Arsenal. They won the FA Cup for a record 14th time in 2020 (their first was 90 years earlier in 1930). They won the English league title 13 times during those 90 years. Their 13th came in season 2003-04, when they went through the entire season of 38 games undefeated, a unique feat.

The previous English league champions to go through a season undefeated were Preston North End, in the first-ever league season 1888-89 (they played 22 games).
4. Founded: 1879 Nickname: The Back Cats Home ground: The Stadium of Light

Answer: Sunderland

Sunderland AFC has had a long history that bounced between the successful and the humdrum. A black cat featured on the club's crest for most of its history, and the nickname "the Back Cats" was adopted after a public vote in 2000. Hailing from the north east of England where football was noted for the passion of its supporters, Sunderland had a long rivalry with Newcastle United FC.
5. Founded: 1887 Nickname: The Tykes Home ground: Oakwell

Answer: Barnsley

Barnsley play their football in South Yorkshire. The club's colours were originally blue, but were changed to red and white in 1904. It took the club almost a century to reach the top flight of English football, but their sojourn in the Premier League lasted just one season, 1997-98. Their best sporting success came in 1911-12 when they won the FA Cup.
6. Founded: 1881 Nickname: East London Dragons Ground: Brisbane Road

Answer: Leyton Orient

Leyton Orient FC was just the second professional club to be founded in London (the first was Fulham, formed in 1879). Also known as "the Os", the nickname East London Dragons came from the mystical wyverns on their coat of arms. Orient spent their history in the lower reaches of the football league, but also fell on harsher times and a spell in non-league football, when they were relegated after 112 years in 2017.

They spent two years in non-league football and were promoted back to the Football League at the end of the 2018-19 season as champions of the (feeder league) National League.
7. Founded: 1894 Nickname: The Robins Home ground: Ashton Gate

Answer: Bristol City

Bristol City are one of two professional clubs in the south western city; the other being Bristol Rovers. Most of their career was spent in the second and third tiers of English football, although they played in the top flight on two occasions (1906-1911 and 1976-1980).

Despite being an English club, they won the Welsh FA Cup in 1934 (one of ten English clubs to achieve this feat). The rules were changed in 1995, when only Welsh teams were allowed to enter the Welsh FA Cup competition.
8. Founded: 1887 Nickname: The Railwaymen Home ground: Gresty Road

Answer: Crewe Alexandra

The nickname came from the close association of the town with the railways network. The club was named after Princess Alexandra, wife of King Edward VII, who ruled from 1901 to 1910. They joined the Football League in 1892 as a foundation member of the newly created Division Two.

They had to re-apply for re-election in 1896 and were voted out at the Football League AGM. They returned in 1921 as a foundation member of the newly-created Third Division (North). Most of the club's history has been spent in the lower reaches of the Football League.
9. Founded: 1870 Nickname The Millers Home ground: New York Stadium

Answer: Rotherham United

The club was formed in 1870 as Thornhill and, in 1877, became Thornhill United. In 1905 they changed their name again, to Rotherham County. The club joined the Football League in 1919 when it was admitted to Division Two. The club merged with Rotherham Town (formed 1878), in 1925, and became Rotherham United. Rotherham Town had played in Division Two from 1893 to 1896, when it failed to be re-elected.

The club never reached the heights of English football, though did win two division three titles -- Division Three (North) in 1950-51 and Division Three in 1980-81.
10. Founded: 1908 Nickname: The Minster Men Home ground: Bootham Crescent until 2021

Answer: York City

York City were founded as an amateur team in 1908, turned professional in 1912, but folded in 1917. A new team was reorganised in 1922 and they were admitted to Division Three (North) in 1929. "The Minstermen" is a reference to York Minster [a cathedral]. Previously they were known as "the robins" because of the colour of their shirts.

They were relegated form the Football League at the end of the 2003-04, when they finished last in the fourth tier. Their only title during their 75 year membership of the Football League came in 1983-84, when they were crowned champions of Division Four.
