Time is up, so I'm gonna steal it. I looked it up, and the answer is Heart of Midlothian FC. The club is actually named for the jail, which, although demolished in 1817, was remembered in the highly popular novel by Scott (or Sir Walter to you and me).

My go. Sweden were the first team to do it, in 1950. Then Hungary did it in 1954. Then Sweden did it again four years later.

The last three teams to do it were:
- a combination of 2 or 3 teams;
- France;
- Slovakia (probably).

What accomplishment am I talking about?

It's something to do with the World Cup I'm guessing - don't know what though...

Is it scoring a certain amount of goals in the world cup?

Or scoring a certain amount in one game? Around 5 or 6 I would guess

Going into the world cup as favourites and losing?

Chris gets it! Well done.

It didn't happen in 1930 (first tournament), 1934 (Uruguay didn't take part) or 1938 (Italy defended their title).

As for the last three times, in 2002 France got one point in their three group games without scoring a goal, so maybe all three teams helped put them out. In 2006, France beat 2002 champions Brazil before losing to Italy in the final, who in turn got dumped out in the group stages in 2010, a defeat to Slovakia in their last group game doing the damage.

As for the other guesses; those teams weren't undefeated; for example, Hungary lost to West Germany in the final of 1954. Drug tests probably weren't around in the early days, and the 1950 tournament, to name but one, had as its top scorer Ademir from Brazil. Professionalism was well and truly in by this stage also.

Your go!

Four part question with the Capital One Cup Final approaching...

Who won the first League Cup Final, the first League Cup Final at Wembley, the first League Cup Final at Cardiff and the first League Cup Final at the 'new' Wembley?

League Cup = historic name and includes any subsequently sponsored competitions.

Didn't Villa beat someone over 2 legs in the first final? Darlington or someone. Dunno the others, although you'd imagine Liverpool would have to be in there somewhere.

Villa and Liverpool are correct for two - the first Final and the first Cardiff Final.

Just leaves the Wembley ones.

The First Wembley one was a 3rd Division team and the First 'New Wembley' one was a Premier League team.
