The music round decimated so many teams. We got 1 right, and we cheated as Brian saw Yazoo appear on your laptop.

That said nearly everyone knew the old skoll rave songs - just not the artist or song title

We got Joe Esposito and said "Yaz" instead of "Yazoo" but just googled it and they were known as "Yaz" in the U.S. so technically we won by a point Cool

Maybe ybig and the supporters clubs could do quizzes as a way of bringing them together. Away tickets as prizes.
