Only Connect Christmas Chairboys Special

Only Connect Christmas Chairboys Special


As we head into the yuletide celebrations and look forward to 2011, Vital Wycombe's very own statto, Benny, brings you a Wycombe Wanderers themed quiz, based on BBC4's brain-busting Only Connect.

Sadly we couldn't afford the services of the delightful Victoria Coren but we can offer you the opportunity to win a very special surprise prize. Send in your answers to wycombe@vitalfootball.co.uk

Those of you who are regular watchers of Only Connect will know that it is a fiendishly difficult and very pedantic quiz and we make no apologies for following their slightly pretentious rules. This quiz will sort out the wheat from the chaff. This is more than just Basic Wycombe Knowledge. Even Kevin Betsy would struggle with this one!

Rounds one, two and four have a total of 12 points and round three has a total of 10 points, so the nearest to the maximum of 46 points will be victorious. So get ready, gird your loins, here we go...
