For reasons which are a bit flimsy, this week's quiz is focused on football clubs by the coast.  Here’s hoping you do as well with these questions as the new Pompey co-owner coped with a few gentle posers at his unveiling last week...

1) Why is Portsmouth's nickname Pompey?

2) Who was Portsmouth’s first goalkeeper

4) Who did Gaydamak describe as a "historical figure in this area" during his press conference last Friday?

5) Southampton chairman Rupert Lowe was famously unable to speak to his Pompey counterpart Milan Mandaric because he was engaged in what activity?

6) Which South Humberside club knocked Spurs out of the Carling Cup this season?

7) Steve Bull is famed as being Wolves goalscoring hero during the 1980s. But who was his less-heralded strike-partner for most of that period? (Clue and tenuous link to the seaside theme: he began and finished his career with Southport).

12) Complete the following quip by Tommy Docherty: "Robert Maxwell has just bought Brighton & Hove Albion, and he's **** to find out it's **** **** *****."  By the way, the number of asterixs don't necessarily reflect the number of letters in each word.

13) Brian Clough was manager of Brighton and Hove Albion. True or false?

14) With which club did Brighton groundshare for two years the late 1990s?

unday, Sunday. Will there be a fan of either team, who if they are winning after 80 mins, won't still be nervous? This could be anything from 0-0 to 5-5, and no one would bat an eye.
