    I'm only able to pop up here for the easier questions, so my own question is likely to be easy too (or obscure :D ) :

    How long did the fastest hat-trick ever take ?

    ( that is as in time elapsed between goals, not from the start of the game)

    OK, in that case Dell19 has it again :D.

    The fastest hattrick known occurred in 1995 when Swedish striker Magnus Arvidsson banged in three goals in 92 (!) seconds in a Swedish first division game. The second fastest hat-trick took just 1 minute 50 seconds and was produced by Argentine Eduardo Maglioni in 1973.

    Ah crap. I was trying to edit at one point so maybe thats when it disappeared.

    The question is name one or all of the three English clubs to concede 120 or more goals in a top flight season.

    Top with 125 goals is a team now in league one but curiously for the team who conceded the most goals, they didn't actually get relegated. The following season they again conceded over a 100 goals and still didn't go down however in the following season they did.

    Next is a team that conceded 121 goals and has the record for conceding the most goals per game in a season. The team is currently in the championship and what was odd about their achievement was that they had won the title two seasons before.

    The final team conceded 120 goals in a season before the team that conceded a 121 goals. They are now in the premiership.


    As a final bit of trivia Man City conceded something like 102 goals whilst finishing 5th in the top flight. Man City isn't an answer to the question though.

    Three championship sides again and one correct.

    The premiership side is a side that would be expected to stay up.

    The other team are in league one (third level) and struggling this season to avoid relegation to league two.
