    mm - tragic fate?

    Was he the player from Columbia who missed a pen then was shot outside a shop in his home town a few months later by an outraged fan?

    No, far from that. It was much before. The one you talk was Escobar and it was for an own goal, although some think that it goes a little deeper than that, and that he had connections with the drug cartels.

    Ah, a nice effort. Closer than col's previous. That's not the right answer, but there's something about Germany in the question's answer.

    He was part of the Austrian wunderteam, and I'm guessing you mean the World Cup of 1934 where he played for Austria (cuz there was no Austria in '38, and the Austrian wunderteam goes from '31 to '34 or something....my grandpa was a fan ;)).... Anyway, he was murdered.

    and: matthias is with double t ;)

    I'll give you the answer willem. In 1938 he refused to play for the german team, the only austrian that did so, which of course wasn't something that you could get aways easily from. Then he was acused of being jewish and died soon after. Officially he commited suicide, but it's a common belief that he was murdered by the nazis. You're up willwm, and thanks for the correction. :goodjob:

    Mm - maybe during the Anschluss. How about Rapid Vienna in 1938.

    ok - so its my usual wild guess when I have no idea.

    indeed, correct :) They beat FSV Frankfurt 3-1. Another good answer would've been 1. FC Wien in 1943 when they beat Hamburg 3-2

    Let me see - back to the English footoe league

    Why is Hull City unique among all the teams in the English premiership and football league?

    Ooh, I can sort of think of two things
    Most likely, aren't they the only city never to have had a team in the top flight football league?
    or
    something to do with pylons? I remember this from somewhere, wish I knew what it was again. They don't have floodlights, or rather they do, but they are on pylons. Something like that?
