    It seemed like it, but no. Preston is an answer to another question, though.

    No. We conceded 19 against Reading (10 in one season) and 15 against Wolves. We conceded 20 against Preston and against one other team. This team had an excellent record in Cardiff at this time. We've beaten them every time in Cardiff since Jones left.

    5. Just missing one.

    9. No. We scored 17 against Barnsley, 13 against Donny and Scunny.

    Re: Dave Jones Era Quiz

    1. Against which team did Jones enjoy a 100% win record against as our manager?

    Chasetown, Hereford

    League wise I seem to remember us doing well against Nottingham Forest under him but thatís a bit of a guess based on an away win or two.

    3. Which team did we play most often in all competitions?

    Leicester?

    5. Against which 3 teams did we score 6?

    Can see Bristol and Derby have been answered. I think the third was Crewe at home on a warm day, the Koumas show if memory is right

    6. We managed 7 3-3 away draws during those 6 seasons. How many 3-3 draws did we see at home?

    None stick in my memory so will go with 0

    7. What was the most common score of a match under Dave Jones (ie 8-7 win)?

    2-1?

    9. Against which 2 teams did we score most goals?

    Bristol City, Derby

    10. Against which 2 teams did we concede most goals?

    Ipswich, Reading

    2.

    Leeds, Blackpool (if final doesnít count), Crewe, Luton

  12. #12

    Re: Dave Jones Era Quiz

    2. Leeds, Crewe, Millwall and Brighton?
    3. Ipswich?
    7. 1-1?
    8. I'll try Reading.
    9. We scored fourteen in three home matches with Derby under Jones, so I agree they must be one of them, but, despite the 6-0, I'm not sure we played the wurzels enough for it to be them - we always used to beat Burnley at home under Jones and we had a couple of 3-3s up there, so I'll go for them.

    1. I should have posted league games only, but it wasn't Forest. They did the double over us in 2010/11, we didn't get near them on both occasions. Jones claimed that he wanted us to finish 4th to give us a better draw in the playoffs (ie avoiding Forest).

    3. Yes, it was Leicester. We played them 14 times in 6 seasons. Leicester were in League 1 for one of those seasons. 10 league games, 2 playoff semi final legs, 1 FA cup, 1 League cup. The season we played them in the playoffs we also played them in the FA cup. They must have been fed up of coming to Cardiff!

    5. Yes, Crewe was the other answer.

    6. Yes. One of those oddities, I guess. Seven 3 all draws away, yet none at home. In fact, all the games under Jones where both sides scored at least 3 were away from home. There was a 4-3 win at Sheffield Utd and that 4-4 draw at London Road.

    7. No.

    9. Derby is right. We scored 21 against them. We only scored 17 against Bristol City. Due to promotions and relegations, we only faced both in 5 of Jones' 6 seasons. The other side we scored 21 against also spent 1 season outside the Championship. Of teams we faced in each of Jones' seasons, we scored most against Preston.

    10. Ipswich is right. They put 20 past us. Reading managed 19, 10 of those in one season....

    Leeds is right. Blackpool is right (playoff final wasn't technically a league game, thought that might catch everyone out!). Crewe never beat us. Luton won 2-1 at Ninian Park in Jones's first season. 3 to find.

    In addition to all the other correct answers, Millwall and Brighton are right as well. Just one team left to find.
    7. No.
    8. No.
    9. We scored 19 against Burnley, so not quite. We scored 3 against them 4 times and only 8 goals in the other 6 games. There was one 1-1 home draw against Burnley, when Steven Thompson came off the bench to equalise late on for them. I had to look that up as that was one game that I don't remember. It was slightly odd as it happened on Feb 15th, but that was our first game against them that season despite it being our 31st league fixture. I guess that must have been moved, but given that we were knocked out of the FA cup in the 3rd round after a replay, I can't see where.

    Re: Dave Jones Era Quiz

    If it's not Burnley for 9, then how about Watford?

    The most common score has to be a low one, so I'll say 1-0.

    1-0 Cardiff win is right.

    Yes. Watford is the other team. In 10 games between Cardiff and Watford, there was only 1 clean sheet. A total of 40 goals were scored in those 10 games. Results were split - 4 wins apiece with 2 draws. Both home and away fixtures saw 20 goals apiece in total. Away form was interesting - 2-1 defeat, 2-2, 2-2, 4-0 win, 4-1 defeat. At home we lost 3-1, 2-1 then won 2-1, 3-1 and 4-2. Of all Championship regulars that we faced during Jones' time, they were the only side to score every time they came to Cardiff.

    I considered that when I thought up the question, but it wasn't Peterborough. We've won 3 of our last 24 games against The Posh, yet we only played them 3 times under Jones, winning 1, drawing 1 and losing one in the cup. We were seconds away from completing a double over them that season.
