Name the three players who have scored a hat-trick for three premiership teams?

Kevin Campbell, Yakubu Aiyegbeni, Ferdinand and Sheringham

But that's four, so I don't no whether that incurs bonus points or disqualification ?

You get all the bonus points.

I never knew Yakubu scored a hat-trick for 3 teams.

Portsmouth, Middlesbrough and Everton.

So my cheeky bonus points comes in the form of a two-part question.

In what year was The Football League forced into abolishing the maximum wage and who became the first £100 per-week player thereafter ?

PS

in case I'm not around and someone has the correct answer. Then just give a link to to the information as proof of accuracy and move on to the next question. Cheers

Maximum wage abolished in 1961, first £100 player was Johnny Haynes.

Wait, wait, wait. I know this one. Something to do with a transfer of a player not reaching a record or something like that, so he gave the quid to the tea lady. I think, or sort of.

I'll be back in a bit. Just off googling :)

Got it. I was sort of right.

It was for Tommy Taylor. Quote from source http://www.barnsley.towntalk.co.uk/about/fame/15/

"Tommy played for Barnsley before his transfer to Manchester United for what was then a record fee £29,999 - as is generally known, Matt Busby did not want him burdened with a £30,000 tag and gave the extra pound to a tea lady "

Correct. There was a different version of the transfer. Matt Busby allegedly said 'No player is worth £30,000'. He then wrote a cheque for £29,999/19/11 and gave the tea lady 1d!

Albert Camus certainly won a Nobel Prize, and he did play football, but not sure if he ever played internationally, nor could I guess who for, as he lived in France I think, but was African by birth (Which nation I'm not sure, I should have paid more attention during those English lessons , but they were getting a bit to absurd...! :) .)

I think only at University level. Didn't he get some crippling disease or something? Dunno. I should have paid more attention also. :)

Camus was born in Mondovi, Algeria. But you know, after researching -- the widely held myth -- that he once played in goal for Algeria has finally been rectified. I've believed that to be the case for the best part of forty-years. Think that I ought to have checked that one before. In fact there seems to be two Albert Camus, the distinguished writer and existentialist and the mythical footballer. :)

But, apparently, he did play for Universite d’Algiers. Although granted. not the same thing as being an international goalkeeper.

The next question is yours by existentialist default.
