Sunday’s Inspiration: Your Entire Life By Year In Two Words Per Year

I hate being concise, succinct, slow and ill informed. I love deep thought. I buzz off a puzzle. Which fucking footballer is this? It’s a teaser that took me 3 minutes to compose but it stumped 100,000 football fans for over 6 months.

– I scored goals in English football in the 1980s.
– I scored for my country.
– I scored 2 hat-tricks in the same year once.
– At 2 consecutive clubs, I had a goal per game ratio.
– I was capped by my country in 2 different decades.
– I was left out of my country’s World Cup squad and sadly never won another cap.
– Weirdly, my first cap was also in a World Cup year.
– I was at 2 capital city clubs.
– The first 2 English clubs I was at both have red in their home shirt.
– I played club football in 2 countries that have won the World Cup.
– In the last 10 years of my career, my birth country were in 2 World Cups.
– In one country, I was at 5 clubs.
– In a different country from that, I was at more than 2 clubs.
– I was at clubs beginning with the letters RST.

I thought it was an easy one. Imagine condensing 366 days into 2 words. It’s also easy. I’ve no time for cow excremental “quarter days” or phantom 29th Februarys. What an oddity. Bait Al Baranda.

So go for it – sum up your entire years by just two words. They don’t have to be connected. Here are the rules.

  • Less then 2 words is cheating.
  • More than 2 words is cheating.
  • Not doing it is cheating.
  • Giving up is cheating.
  • Apostrophes are acceptable.
  • Punctuation is acceptable as part of that word.
