What Edinburgh based football team are known as the Jam Tarts ?

We seem to crop up more than Hibs on quiz programmes

Pity none  of the three knew the answer. Deserved to fail.

I seen it.   It was a better question than the tipping point one.   I wonder if they would have accepted heart of midlothian as an answer 🤔

Englunnders  are so ignorant when it comes to answering questions on Scotland, on these tv shows! ... and I say this (quietly) with an English wife!... although she claims she was conceived in Scotland. 🤔

Obviously Brad didn't know the answer. Clearly Heart of Midlothian would have been the correct answer.

I was disappointed with that as well 😄

Madam and I saw it, and were disappointed but not surprised that the contestants passed. Then again, we wondered how many Scots contestants faced with the nickname of an English premiership club (who get far more media exposure), and without any real interest in football, would get them either.

It's more the fact they didn't know the Edinburgh clubs rather than the nicknames of the clubs

 

They had a 50/50 Hearts or Hibs

 

If they knew that then Jam Tarts is pretty obvious

We got a mention on Pointless last week.   Our full and proper name.

If I was on Pointless (or Tenable) I would always pick the Scottish based question (be it sport, politics or geography) as 100 people know mostly about SE England.

I have said this before. When it comes to quiz shows on the telly. Scottish contestants know far more about English Geography, history etc, than English contestants know about Scottish Geography, history etc. They dont teach about Britain in English schools, they teach about England.

Golf as well.... for some reason (I'm talking Pointless here) nobody knows anything about golf!

They always seem to refer to any place in Scotland as Scotland

 

If a ship was going to Devonport it's going Devonport. If it was going to Rosyth it's going to Scotland

Correct. 

My two eldest were educated in the English school system. They were doing history on Shipbuilding in Britain. They covered Liverpool, Newcastle, and Sunderland. Glasgow the second city of the empire and more famous for ship building in the UK than anywhere else never got a mention. 

I mentioned this to their teachers and both looked at me as if I was something they had found on the bottom of their shoes. There is a four years difference between my two eldest and in four years they never saw fit to alter what they were teaching.

If someone asked what team goes by that nickname I would have said Manchester City.

There was a 5-1 question on it one night. Lassie got it right.

I know that when I was at school in Edinburgh in the 70's I was taught all about English, European and USA history (repeal of the Corn Laws, 1848 revolutions, the American Civil War etc etc) and I loved it, but absolutely nothing about Scottish history. When I lived in England I played in a quiz league and, to be fair, I found out that most of my fellow quizzers knew more about Scotland than I did. The only exception was Scottish football as they tended to know almost nothing. whereas I was well and truly in my element.

You could have put in a word for Belfast too.

 

In Dubrovnik's impressive maritime museum models of Clyde-built ships outnumber those of all the English shipbuilding centres put together.

If a city's name is not in the team name, it's not really a 50/50. Knowing the teams and knowing where they play are two different things.

Indeed.  Whenever there's a question that starts "What Scottish city..." they answer `Glasgow` as it's the only one they can think of.

It was a lack of Scottish football knowledge with these particular contestants.

 

If you are a football fan you will know Hearts and Hibs are Edinburgh clubs

I think Belfast will disagree with that.

It was a bloke, I'm sure I recorded it at the time.

 

Edit: See if this works.
