Everyone loves a mid-morning quiz question to make the wait for lunch go that little bit quicker.

So when former Leeds striker Michael Bridges saw this teaser pop up on his Twitter timeline, he thought he’d have a go.

Of course Bridges, who joined Leeds from Sunderland at the start of the 1999/2000 season, may just have had a little inside knowledge.

For the record – he’s right. Bridges bagged 19 Premier League goals that season.

Just knowing the answer to a quiz question is satisfying. Actually being the answer must be so much better.

Bridges’s time at Leeds was subsequently hampered by serious injury, but he clearly still has a soft spot for the Elland Road club.
