Dictate The Podcast – Quarantine Quiz Special

In today’s Dictate The Podcast we wanted to try something different and do a quiz. The reason behind this, many people are probably fed up with being stuck in doors, not being able to see their family and friends. We wanted to do something light hearted in an attempt to make you laugh. Putting this together was fun, but the real drive was to try and make something different from our usual style.

The quiz focused on 15 Football Manager related questions and 5 general knowledge questions. On today’s episode we had Cait AKA Old Lady Plays, Luke and Pelham AKA  FMTahiti, as well as Ryan, the host.

If you would like to play along, here are the questions. The answers are listed at the bottom of the article. We’d love to know how many you get and if you beat any of our panellists.
