    D) Arsenal’s European exploits in the Inter- cities fairs cup vs Anderlecht.
    E) Zbigniew Boniek- who formed a lethal partnership with the other 2 at Juve during one of their most successful eras. All 3 were selected to the Pele’s and FIFA’s list of great players.
    F) Victories by squad players of the same nation. Celtic’s was most remarkable as all of them were home grown- the Lisbon lions famously came from within 30 miles of the club.
    G) Francisco Gento- he won 6 European cups. Maldini has won 5.
    H) Heysel stadium- the 3 clubs won European cups at the venue.
    I) Frank Lampard- all of the players have played for England over 3 decades- 90s, 00s and 10s.
    H) Liam Gallagher of Oasis, Brian Johnson of AC/DC and Steve Harris of Iron Maiden- besides being music stars, they are supporters of EPL clubs- Man City, Newcastle and West Ham. One more connect rings close. The Goal series has featured all of them in one form or the other (I’m not sure about the Maiden guy).

  9. A Spaniard in the works says:

    @Sounak,
    For a couple of questions, multiple answers are possible. What is the policy on that matter?

    For instance,
    Greaves and Linekar both have been topscorers but the no. of FA cups is correct as an answer.

    Similarly, Collymore, Bergkamp and Cole have been costly transfers but they’ve also shared player of the month awards.

    In other words, all these answers do hold good for the question asked. Shouldn’t they be considered?
